The new D-1 math

The University of Nebraska at Omaha funds its $1.4 million application fee to the NCAA to move to Division I – the first school to pay the new, much higher amount – out of savings from cancelling its football program.

March Madness sure is getting expensive for some.

You can go your own way.

Stephen Garcia graduated yesterday, which means he can head down the same road Russell Wilson’s traveling, if he so chooses.

… Though Garcia could transfer anywhere as a graduate student — something even Spurrier has mentioned — he has said he wants to return to USC for his fifth and final season. The Gamecocks reached the SEC championship game a year ago for the first time, and Garcia believes the 2011 team has a good chance to return to Atlanta and win the school’s first SEC title.

A decision is expected in the next few weeks, and many anticipate Garcia will be reinstated by June, in time for summer workouts.

June, hunh.  I wonder if reinstatement would be as quick if the player in question didn’t have any leverage.

They’re my pick to win the SEC East. I like Aaron Murray a lot and I think Isaiah Crowell will help fix one of the SEC’s worst running games. Plus its Yr 2 in the defensive scheme.

If there’s positive buzz out of summer practice about Crowell and Jenkins, expect Feldman to have media company.  I’m not sure that’ll do Richt any favors in getting his team ready for the season.
