Let’s clear the decks with some tasty hump day nourishment:
- Ole Miss hasn’t beaten a team with a winning record this season, but CFN says that’s about to change this Saturday in Athens… because the Dawgs didn’t lose to Kentucky.
- Mark Shurtleff surrenders; Bill Hancock yawns.
- Florida feels good about its defensive showing against Georgia. It should.
- You want Georgia to be more like Alabama? Here’s one way that’s happening.
- Coaches Hot Seat Blog does a best of Erk post.
- Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze on Richt: “You kind of find yourself pulling for him when you’re not playing him.”
- The Rebel Black Bears play fast on offense, and some Dawg defenders see Nick Saban’s point about that. But not Christian Robinson: “If they’re beating us, then we need to figure out a way to stop it,” Robinson said. “That’s not a safety issue. That’s a defensive issue.”
- The NCAA announces its new enforcement structure, with an emphasis on “conduct breaches that seriously undermine or threaten the integrity of the NCAA Constitution”. The most interesting development is that head coaches will be presumed guilty – “if a violation occurs, the head coach is presumed responsible, and if he or she can’t overcome that presumption, charges will be forthcoming.” No doubt JoePa is turning over in his grave.
