We’ve already had the Da’Rick Rogers suspension laid on us, but there are a few other things popping up on the radar all of a sudden that may be worth monitoring:
- It looks like there may be a little more to that Mississippi State coaching change than was first described, as now the school confirms an NCAA investigation. Dan Mullen can try the “remain calm, all is well” approach if he likes, but you never know how big a distraction these things can turn out to be until you’re in the middle of it.
- I don’t know about you, but I tend to think having a running quarterback who has to miss practice due to back spasms with a week to go before the season starter isn’t a good thing.
- And they’re really having to stretch to patch together an offensive line at Missouri right now. That may turn out to have a much bigger impact on the Georgia game than the suspensions, in case anybody in the media cares to pay attention. I guarantee you Todd Grantham is.
