Dear GaTech fans, don’t talk bad about my team. We see every word you say. I have enough trouble trying to keep their heads up now. thanks
No problem, Anthony. We can take up the slack here.
It looks like the Red and Black’s Zach Dillard will have to wait on that Pulitzer he was hoping for with his Caleb King exposé.
Easily my favorite part:
… The response from the SEC compliance office came at an opportune time for the Bulldogs.
If the Athletic Association had not heard a ruling by Saturday’s game in Jacksonville, Fla., coaches would have had to make a decision whether to play or sit King — much like the Bulldogs were forced to do with A.J. Green earlier this season.
No doubt Richt was losing a lot of sleep over that.
Corch Meyers, the suspense is killing me. Killing me, I tells ‘ya.
… LSU led the SEC in rushing defense last week, but that was before the Tigers allowed 440 rushing yards in their 24-17 loss at Auburn. Newton had a season-high 217 yards, and Auburn’s punishing performance resulted in LSU plummeting from first (83.6) to seventh (128.1) in the league. [Emphasis added.]
Let me again commend the University of Louisville for its wisdom in hiring Charlie Strong. My only question is, what took you guys so long?

During his eight-year stint as Florida’s defensive coordinator, Strong’s defenses held Georgia on average to 10.5 points and almost 45 yards less per game than Georgia’s seasonal numbers. That’s a solid body of work. Even in the two years when Florida came up on the short end, it’s not as if his defense gave up embarrassing numbers.
I won’t miss seeing him on Saturday. I suspect Mike Bobo shares my sentiment.
