A few choice morsels to get your day started:
- The only program in the SEC since 2001 that’s changed less than thirty members of its coaching staff in that time? Georgia, at seventeen.
- Seth Emerson has a list of the players from teams Georgia is scheduled to play next season and the underclassmen they lost to the draft here.
- When it comes to minority hires, Sylvester Croom suggests that athletic directors have moved ahead of head coaches on the curve.
- It didn’t take long for Tony Brown to become shit that Nick Saban has to make time for.
- Speaking of Saban, Stewart Mandel makes an interesting point about his hire of Junior: “Saban’s last two offensive coordinators — Jim McElwain and Doug Nussmeier — worked in relative anonymity. But with Kiffin, I have no doubt he will get the requisite praise or blame for the Crimson Tide’s offensive performance.” I wonder if that will turn out to be a feature or a bug.
- Hal Mumme lands his seventh head coaching job.
- Supposedly FSU was willing to go toe to toe with Georgia on Jeremy Pruitt’s salary, but couldn’t come up with the jack to outbid Mississippi State for Geoff Collins’ services. Interesting.
