With all the talk about breaking in Murray and a new defensive scheme, it’s easy to forget about our old friend, directional kicking. With that in mind, dial up this Dawg Post video to the 1:35 mark and prepare to cheer.
Damn, that makes me happy to hear.
Georgia finishes first in The Princeton Review’s party school rankings.
The Athens campus has been on the list 10 times since the ranking was created in 1992, but this is the first time the university has taken the top spot.
I guess those player incidents with alcohol we’ve been noticing didn’t occur completely in a vacuum.
It’s one thing to be a consummate asshole about blogging.
It’s another to be a consummate, hypocritical asshole about blogging. Well played, Buzz Bissinger.
UPDATE: Will Collier posts a timely, contra-Bissinger view worth sharing.
To put it bluntly, why should I slog through the same old beat writer reports when I can read Jerry Hinnen at War Blog Eagle? Why spend time reading the umpteenth pseudo-Paul-Finebaum opinion column when I can read Orson Spencer Swindle Hall Mellencamp at Every Day Should Be Saturday?

Based on my earlier post, someone is probably going to criticize me for spending too much time at Team Speed Kills, but there are two links there this morning from this post that I’ve got to share.
First, Houston Nutt actually had the gonads to say this publicly about Jeremiah Masoli coming to the Rebels:
“I told him, `Look, I don’t have a career record of recruiting criminals,’ ” Nutt said. “I said, `Do you realize I’ve got my career on the line? I got eyes on me for taking a thug, that’s what people are saying…’ ”
How quickly they forget. Or at least how quickly the Nuttster hopes they forget.
Meanwhile, the George Santayana “Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it” Award goes to Paragon SC at Conquest Chronicles for this gem:
Trust me Lane Kiffin knows exactly what he is doing…
Oy. Dude. If I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard that…
Make sure you check out Kanudawg’s exhaustive post regarding ticket options and other matters related to the Georgia-Colorado game on October 2. It’s all there.
Sam Bradford: six-year, $78 million contract with the St. Louis Rams Friday night, with $50 million in guaranteed money.
Eric Berry: contract is the richest ever given to a safety in the NFL, reportedly a six-year deal for $60 million with $34 million guaranteed.
Is it any wonder that we’ve got agents out there throwing parties and offering financial inducements to win the hearts (and signatures on the dotted line) of top college players? Good luck with all that, NCAA.
