As long as they spell your name correctly.

From Stewie’s Mail Bag today:

You know we’re in the dregs of summer when the only real college football news of late has been the unfortunate, but inevitable, wave of offseason player arrests (with an athletic director thrown in this year to boot). Most of those headlines have emanated from SEC locales Georgia and Tennessee.

I’m just wondering – does that mean Georgia now passes Mandel’s Montana smell test?  After all,

… with all due respect to Mark Richt, if we secretly inserted him into a police lineup, how many of them would actually say, “Hey, look, it’s Mark Richt!”

    Probably no one. But they may say, “Hey, look, it’s Helen Hunt! Bless her heart…has she gained a little weight and done something with her hair?”

    Mandel, I’m all in on this bet right now…

    “Kellen Moore and Boise State would truly silence the critics by beating the 2010 SEC champion in a BCS matchup.”

    Which would have to be the 2011 BCS Championship Game at the University of Phoenix (a well-known virtual football team) Stadium in Glendale because that’s where the 2010 SEC champion will be playing some team not from Boise.

    A Boise State match up would go as well as the last time Boise faced an SEC team the year they won the conference championship. I’ll be so happy when this Boise talk goes away.

      It probably will go away after Boise’s very first game.

        Lewis Grizzard had a Boise Idaho friendship thought. You call a person in the middle of the night and say “I’m in Boise Idaho and I’ve got to have $500.” If they show up with the money, they’re a true friend.

        If it doesn’t, look for it to be the most talked about CFB story of the year, especially as the Oregon State game approaches. This will be a legit debate if Boise goes undefeated for two straight years with wins over highly rated teams in both. I understand the point of them not facing a top flight schedule, but we have tolerated USC, Ohio State, Michigan, and ND for decades with few no more impressive wins. Boise didn’t back into those wins over Oregon and TCU last year, they whipped their butts. I don’t think they gave up a first down to the Oregon offense in the first half.

    Wasn’t Stewie one of the idiots predicting that Boise was going to eat our lunch between the hedges? I’m so sick of this Boise lovefest… GO HOKIES!
