Living in the past

So, if the hammer comes down on Southern Cal because of Reggie Bush and if the BCS decides to vacate the BCS title game win and if the AP strips the Trojans of their #1 ranking and if Orrin Hatch doesn’t pass a law declaring Utah to be the 2004 national champs and if a bunch of people in the right places agree that Clay Travis makes a lick of sense here, does that mean that Tommy Tuberville will finally admit that an SEC team can win a national title without a college football playoff?

I wanted an excuse to post this picture again, anyway.

I just hope they can still round these up, too.

Homerin’ ain’t easy.

I bet Pat Dooley hesitated before ranking Mallett ahead of Brantley on this list.

Craig James, this is your life.

ESPN, of all places, has green lighted a documentary on the SMU cheating scandal that ultimately led to the NCAA giving the program the death penalty.  I say “of all places” because it employs somebody who was at SMU when all of that went down.

… SMU’s Mustang Mania period from 1978 through 1986 featured some awesome players, including Eric Dickerson and Craig James, and some truly inspired cheating by coach Ron Meyer and his gang of well-heeled bag men, whose tactics were countenanced by no less than the governor of this state, Bill Clements.

It’s a subject that has long cried out for a comprehensive documentary, and it appears one is on the way. ESPN has green-lighted Pony Excess, directed by SMU film school graduate Thaddeus D. Matula, to air on the night of the Heisman Trophy presentation in December as part of the network’s 30 for 30 series.

Craig James is going to be keeping that PR firm of his busy for the rest of the year.

SI.com digs into the meme.

I don’t know what I like best about this Sports Illustrated video, the hostess discussing “Mike Richt” being on the hot seat, or the 90-27 graphic that flashes on the screen after she does that.

If this is what passes for an “Inside Report”, I’d hate to see what they do with a casual summary.
