Monday morning buffet

Hope all you dads out there enjoyed your day yesterday.  Here’s some morning college football nourishment:

  • Speaking of Father’s Day, Watts Dantzler committed yesterday, in part because of a certain ineffective Mark Richt promotion:  “The Dream Team concept was something I liked,” Dantzler said. “They showed me the list (showing UGA’s top targets) and I was at the top of the Dream Team, and that made me feel special. I’m going to be calling (Georgia recruits) Isiah Crowell and Gabe Wright when I get home and get them on board, and maybe we can have one of the top two or three recruiting classes in the country.”
  • In a world where the Big XII has ditched the Oklahoma-Nebraska game, there are no sacred traditions any more.
  • The Delaware school that’s home to Lane Kiffin’s prized 13-year old commitment may have some issues.
  • Tim Tucker asks a good question.
  • I’m not sure what’s sadder here – that UT has fallen to #72 in one of those seemingly ubiquitous preseason D-1 football program rankings (#71:  a LeFevour-less Central Michigan) or that it’s still got more than a thousand football seats left to sell.
  • Beware of stories entitled “Truths emerge”.  They’re usually just an exercise in throwing a bunch of stuff out there to see if anything sticks.  (h/t Team Speed Kills)

    me thinks alot of these recruits find their names at the top of the list when it is shown to them during visits. Nice work, Coach.

      And to top it off, when CMR shows the rotating Dream Team List of #1 Recruits to each at the one-on-one with the recruit, he uses as background music this Grand Theft Auto soundtrack from a Gainesville native during the pitch just to needle Irvin and Huntley…

    Looks like Kiffin has been providing some consulting work on the side to the Red Lion team.

    Don’t look now AJC, but Watts Dantzler says you’re full of bull-puckey
