It’s the post-Peach State Preview breakfast line!
- Here’s one thing that makes me nervous about the 2010 season for Georgia: finding adequate depth at outside linebacker from the incoming freshman class. “Those guys are the body types we think will fit into that role,” Richt said. “I hope we don’t have to rely on those guys as they’re trying to figure it out, and some of them have got to grow a little bit physically, too. T.J.’s not a really thick guy right now. Dexter’s a little bit slim. Burrows is a bit more physical. But we need to get those guys in there and learn what to do, and hopefully we don’t have to play them too much.”
- And MaconDawg points out another area that makes me nervous, not just about 2010, but about 2011. Because Georgia will need a new #1 then.
- Nervous item #3, Aaron Murray: “Certain things you can’t be good at it unless you do them and do them in a game,” Richt said. “You can’t simulate a game, you can’t simulate national TV, you can’t simulate playing against whoever we’re going to play on our schedule. Along the way, there’s going to be bumps in the road and hopefully we can minimize those. The fact that he’s surrounded by a lot of veteran players on offense should help.”
- Talk about your mixed emotions – Bleacher Report is amateurish at best, this post is an embarrassing example of that… and yet, I find myself taking a certain amount of pleasure in the angst it’s generating in Tech Land. Does that make me a bad person?
- At this point, no Lew Perkins story surprises me. I will say that if he worked at Texas Tech, that $600K retention bonus due next year would be so not paid…
- Every time I read a story about how much the Big Ten paid out to its member institutions, the number continues to shrink. Now it’s down to $19.9 million per team, according to University of Michigan Chief Financial Officer Jason Winters. Obviously, that’s nothing to sneer at, but it’s not the yawning gap over the SEC that’s been portrayed, either. (Nor does that include these moneys.)
