Home cooking?

Find this kind of interesting.

I haven’t watched the replay yet, but I guess I’ll check this out.

Neither rain, nor sleet, nor even Level III violations…

Georgia is forced to self-report NCAA violations based in part on the Post Office delivering mail more efficiently than the recruiting staff anticipated.

Where’s your conspiracy theory now?

The College Football Playoff has its selection committee chairman:  Arkansas AD Jeff Long.

For those of you who were fretting about the SEC getting screwed, I think you can relax now.

Then again, this is the guy who thought hiring John L. Smith was a swell idea.

If every instinct you have is wrong…

Mark Richt, on his defense:

“You’ve just got to be careful not to change too much because (then) you have no continuity,” Richt said. “If you’ve got a guy who’s going through some growing pains and then you decide to make a change with another new guy, then he’s gotta go through his growing pains as well. And before you know it you’ve got no continuity at all. So we’re not in any kind of position where we think we need to make a bunch of wholesale changes right now.”

I’m not sure continuity is the key thing to be focusing on right now.  In fact, maybe Georgia should be thinking about the opposite.

Hire that man!

My Mumme Poll ballot, Week 7

Welp, that was an interesting weekend.  This week’s ballot looks like this (*tiebreaker):

  • Alabama*
  • Baylor
  • Clemson
  • FSU
  • LSU
  • Ohio State
  • Oregon
  • Stanford
  • Texas A&M
  • UCLA

Also considered:  Georgia, Miami, Missouri, South Carolina, Washington

This was tough.  I really struggled with Stanford in the last slot, but Miami still hasn’t sold me on itself and I felt that if I let one of the three SEC teams on the ballot, it was hard to leave the other two off.  All told, it took me thirty minutes again, which is longer than usual after the first vote.

My SEC Power Poll ballot, Week 7

Call this week The West Also Rises.  The East is now officially a jumbled mess.

  1. Alabama.  The Tide is back in its greased groove.  How boring.
  2. LSU.  Won without Mettenberger being a factor.  Why do I think that makes Les Miles very happy?
  3. Texas A&M.  Hey, remember all those grave warnings from the pundit class about how Johnny Manziel’s offseason activities would affect his play?  Good times.
  4. South Carolina.  It doesn’t take long for the OBC to get his smug back on.
  5. Missouri.  A well-coached team.  But now it’s a well-coached team missing its starting quarterback.
  6. Georgia.  Injured, inconsistent and last in scoring defense is no way to go through the SEC, son.
  7. Florida.  Getting shut down by a defense that had allowed its last two opponents to average 7 yards per play makes it official:  the Gators’ offense sucks.
  8. Auburn.  Killing a team that lost to Samford by 39 and five bucks gets you a latte at Starbucks.
  9. Ole Miss.  Two years in a row of being close, but no cigar with TAMU.
  10. Vanderbilt.  You think Jordan Matthews isn’t a little psyched up about playing against Georgia’s secondary this week?
  11. Mississippi State.  Underwhelmingly, the Bulldogs eked out an underwhelming one-point win at home against a MAC squad in an underwhelming game.  Did I mention how underwhelming MSU is?
  12. Tennessee.  Not a good bye week when Missouri managed to dampen the glow of the Vols’ impressive moral victory against Georgia.
  13. Arkansas.  Happy homecoming:  the Hogs get pounded by South Carolina, then have to endure Spurrier’s faux sympathy afterwards.
  14. Kentucky.  The conference’s yin to Alabama’s yang.
