Grab that plate and fill it up.
- Ah, the AJ-C, doing what it does so well – concern trolling about recruiting. (The grammatical error in the header is a real bonus, though.)
- Socrates has an idea about what to expect from Jeremy Pruitt’s scheme this season.
- And Seth Emerson tells us that everyone on the defense starts with a clean slate under Pruitt.
- Free Malik McDowell!

“Did UGA recruit too good at RB”?!?
Good lord, copy editors. Step your game up.
Who are these “copy editors” you speak of?
Meanwhile, Carvell doubles down on Twitter.
Holy crap. They actually went back and corrected the header. Carvell also deleted the tweet.
I.He is on his toes and still managing to beat the odds.
“So here’s the deal. I’m a blogger, I guess. I’m not constrained at all by the ethics of journalism, and apparently those are out the window anyway. So let’s rumormonger a little too.
If you were a reader of the AJC in 2014, would you want to read Carvell? Do you expect him to have a job in 2014? Please vote below.
Thank you for voting!”

II. You can run but you cannot hide!
“News for Michael Carvell
They changed the header but not the URL, so I’ll keep mocking them for that.
Yes, they make a very good point. The AJC is my go to source for real news. I’m extremely worried now that we may have recruited too well (or good). The last thing we need right now is well-recruited players, particularly at running back.
The gooder we recruit at RB the better, in my opinion.
Correction: “…..at RB the better….”, should read “…..at RB the more gooder…..”.
I won’t be satisfied with recruiting at RB until Georgia recruits the bestest.
“Did UGA recruit too well at RB?”
I guess NIck Chubb and Sony Michel weren’t paying much attention to Marshall and Gurley?
Though after some of off the field issues at RB in the past few years, recruiting good at RB maybe just what needs to happen.
I guess McClendon is “too well” at what he does. I can see the headline sometime next February…”UGA RB coach fails to sign state’s top player; not good enough to be nation’s top recruiter no more”.
TennesseeDawg its not “gooder” it’s “more better”
I thought it was butter.
That’s “mo better.”
What we seem to be talking about here, with re-jiggering of the NCAA, is that the conferences which have lucrative TV deals want more say in their so.
The NCAA can’t even begin to deliver the services it is supposed to deliver now. How can it possibly deliver the services to the conferences it would have to continue to service plus meet the needs of a new super group, which expects more?
Ultimately it seems to me the question quickly becomes: “What can the NCAA actually do to help the SEC produce a more viable product?”
Getting out of the way would seem to me to be the logical answer.
Let’s just do away with CFB and spare everyone the gory violence. How did we ever love a game as hideous as this, or force players to participate. We could put the students who want to play the “new, modified ” game in Sanford Stadium on Saturdays in Red and Black rodeo clown barrels stuffed with styro foam peanuts packing material and let them bounce off of each other. Students who want to participate will not require a scholarship so the unionization idea goes away, along with any future liability costs from injury. Add to that the substantial savings on coaching contracts, recruiting, and clean up costs from tailgaters. Marvelous, everyone wins in Happyville.
So wussification, promotion of opportunities for ambulance chasers, and expansion of coddling the “oppressed” strikes another blow to the America I loved and respected. Notice how these reforms are always couched in the blankets of ideals, player safety, that no one can oppose…..unless, of course, you are a big bad racist—which you surely are if you don’t buy into any idealistic “utopia proposal” made by those who know what is good for you. Let’s all bow to our new masters….and put down that salt shaker, don’t eat that red meat, or drink that caffeinated soft drink, and for God’s sake, throw that cigar away. Larry may have passed on at a good time. We have seen the enemy, and it is us.
I know you want us to at least “Smok’em if you got’em”, eh? It’s the only thing I’ll have left besides tequila.
Think I’ll just amble into my favorite bar today, walking without assistance. The physical therapist says after the stroll we took on my lawn (using a staff parttime, and otherwise with no assistance) that she was satisfied that I can star in “Walking Hard, The Dewey Cox Story, Part ll”.
Cojones, you always lighten the mood around here. One of these days before we both get too old I hope to carry you across the threshold for a beer, buddy. 😉
You bet my friend, the Health Nazis will eventually shut down free choice so enjoy what you like in private before they kick your doors down. I am not a hard drug proponent, but outside of that I believe individuals should determine what they, and their family consume….especially in a private environment. So yeah Old Codger, smoke ’em.
