A few tasty morsels out there for your dining pleasure:
- Kristi Dosh breaks down the amounts contributed by boosters to SEC schools. The weird story is Mississippi State, which took in no booster money during the 2009-10 school year because it didn’t need it. Seriously.
- While we’re on the subject of money, here’s an exhaustive – and I do mean exhaustive – breakdown of the last few years’ operational budgets for ACC schools from the fine Clemson blog Shakin the Southland. I mention it because they’re promising to give the same treatment to Georgia’s in the near future.
- Pete Fiutak’s taken it upon himself to write Mark Richt’s Georgia obituary: “The Coaching Change Will Come … At the end of the year. This 2011 Bulldogs aren’t good enough to make the huge splash needed. Only 51, Richt will have his choice of mid-level head coaching jobs and can call his shot if he wants to be an assistant.”
- Conspiracy theory in Knoxville.
- It seems to me if officiating is as difficult as this article indicates, there’s even less reason to believe the new NCAA taunting rule is a good idea.
- Greg McGarity’s hiring spree.
- You can take the word “probably” out of this quote: “Richt said if there’s another G-Day player draft next year, that he might ‘make it some kind of Internet event. Let the Bulldog Nation watch the guys pick. That probably would be fun.’”
