Plenty of stuff to chow down on this morning:
- In case you’ve wondered what Robert Edwards is up to these days, here you go.
- Here’s an indication of how 2009 has already had its share of twists and turns: Oklahoma is looking at a win against Miami as a stepping stone to getting back in the national title hunt.
- Mitch Mustain – as a quarterback, he’ll make a heck of a punter. His mom must be thrilled.
- Junior’s showmanship pays off big for CBS: “The Florida-Tennessee drew an overnight household rating/share of 4.8/11 on CBS, which is up 60 percent from last year’s Florida-Tennessee game (3.0/7). Saturday’s rating/share was the highest CBS has had for its first game of the college football season since 2002, when the UF-Miami game drew a 6.0/13.”
- For those of you unhappy with Georgia’s defense, things could be a lot worse.
- Another interesting stat from the Arkansas game: “Richt’s Bulldogs had never won consecutive contests in which they trailed at any point by double digits until the past two weeks. In fact, the last time Georgia turned the trick was in Ray Goff’s second season as coach in 1990, when the Bulldogs defeated Southern Miss 18-17 and Alabama 17-16.”
- Here’s a review of Munson’s book.
- Progress of a sort: “Kiffin said Crompton played “better” at Florida than he did against UCLA. The quarterback threw for exactly 93 yards each game, but he decreased his interceptions from three against the Bruins to two against the Gators.”
- None of the USC coaches told Aaron Corp he was starting last Saturday? Weird. (h/t The Wiz of Odds)
- I bet Penn Wagers is jonesing to call the Georgia-ASU game. Arizona State ranks 118th in the nation in penalty yards per game with 94.5. Georgia is 115th with 86.3.
