Thursday morning buffet

No brats today, I’m afraid.  Still, there’s plenty to sample.

  • Two more things to factor into the expansion discussion:  academics and politics.
  • Jordan Jefferson gets the Doc Saturday breakdown here.  He’s definitely one of the biggest puzzles in the SEC now.
  • Shakin the Southland asks what does it take to have a #1 program.
  • Another recruit-has-concerns-about-the-spread story.  Except this one doesn’t involve Florida.  And he’s not a skill position player.
  • The IRS audits Georgia.  Don’t they know who Michael Adams is?
  • Quarterback signee gets kicked off high school baseball team for disrespecting coaches, then physically assaults head coach during a meeting about the dismissal.  In front of his parents. Then believes that Utah will still have a place for him on the team.  In the immortal words of Lt. Walters in Ruthless People, this could very well be the stupidest person on the face of the earth.  Perhaps we should shoot him.
  • Jim Delany thinks he can use conference expansion as a means of getting some recruiting mojo for the Big Ten in sunnier climes?  I thought that’s what global warming was for.

    Brats give me gas anyway.

    I would like to find out more about the Utah kid’s dad. I don’t know exactly why, but baseball produces the most politics and the worst meddling parents of any sport. Adam James would be nothing on a high school baseball team.

    Yes. Yes they do.

    “We [Texas] were quite interested in raising academic standards and the Southeastern Conference had absolutely no interest in that.”

    But we [The SEC] still got that swagger waggin’…

    Don’t underestimate the Dawgs going after big OT Region. CSS is a terrific recruiter. You’ve got to admit he’s brought our OL light years ahead of where we were when he was hired.

    Getting off the buffet subjects a bit (need to shed a few lbs I picked up over the winter), but with 9 great verbals so far the Dawgs are in position to have a huge recruiting year!


  5. 2011 s/b a great recruiting year. What excites me is that regardless of who we sign, I don’t see any one of them pushing the player(s) we already have on campus for a starting position. We are already solid but we need the depth.
