Wednesday brunch buffet

More tasty morsels for your reading pleasure:

  • Lots of early contenders for the Fulmer Cup lead, including Ole Miss.
  • For everyone advocating the SEC ending divisional play as a means of straightening out football scheduling, it hasn’t done much for basketball.
  • Good news!  To accommodate DISH, the SEC Network is moving its launch date up a couple of weeks. That means we can have more PAWWWLLL.
  • Mike McQueary confided to a dozen Nittany Lions players that he could relate to the helplessness of the young boy he had seen with Sandusky in a campus shower a decade earlier because he was abused as a boy…”  Too bad his experience didn’t motivate him to respond in a better way.
  • Georgia is the only SEC team facing two BCS conference opponents this season.
  • South Carolina defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward and his staff were in Austin last Friday, Saturday and Sunday to talk strategy with new Texas coach Charlie Strong and his defensive staff.”  While we’re passing rule changes, you know one I’d like?  A rule prohibiting defensive coordinators of teams on Georgia’s schedule from consulting with Charlie Strong.
  • And don’t forget the NCAA’s football rules committee has its review of the 10-second substitution proposal scheduled today.

    I’m just glad we don’t have to send CTG to Tallahassee to learn strategy from Jeremy Pruitt.

    Chi’s a talented troll, but a transparent one. He tries to form your opinion and then your asked about your opinion on the very subject in a “poll” very scientific. ..While the SEC may play the easiest non-con schedule (“by a mile” he says), the difficulty of the SEC itself more than makes up for that…You don’t need cupcakes on the non-con schedule if your in a cupcake conference anyway. That’s a no-brainer but one he conveiniently overlooks. Some people are jealous of the SEC.
    I hope Mr. Chi will do a similar breakdown of in-conference SOSs.

    Mike McQueary is yet another victim of Jerry Sandusky and the Penn State culture that allowed Sandusky access.

    I still believe, contrary to McQueary’s comment, that Joe Paterno could have stopped Sandusky. He was, as I believe I said at the time, the most powerful man in State College, and probably in Pennsylvania.

    Paterno took the easy way out, leaving McQueary and the administrators to face the courts.

    The World Wide Leader of Bullshit has done everything it can, it seems to me, to gloss over this situation and portray Penn State as the new model of the comeback kids.

    Nobody should be allowed to forget what happened at Penn State…nobody.


  4. Chi apparently considers a six hour drive to be a “virtual home game.” Granted, it’s a long trip from Boise to Atlanta, but it’s a long trip from Boise to anywhere.


  5. Does the Dish/SEC Network deal mean that if you have DirecTV the SEC Net will probably be at an extra fee instead of part of a standard package? I wouldn’t think it would be a Dish exclusive deal. (?)…
