Grab a plate.
- Tracy Rocker sounds pretty no-nonsense about his charges: “You produce, you stay,” Rocker said. “You don’t produce, next. It’s all about playing with the right combination and to get guys to produce with full-speed effort. That’s the most important thing. That’s what I’m working on up front is effort. Try to eliminate the MA’s (missed assignments) and go forward.”
- Bill Connelly looks at how the 2013 FBS teams ranked in order of their per-game difference between projection and reality as to offensive and defensive scoring efficiency. Georgia ranks 116th. He didn’t speculate how much of that to chalk up to luck, randomness or something else, but perhaps I need to dust off the ol’ “regression to the mean, bitchez!” meme.
- Another day in paradise on Finebaum. (Do any of his listeners actually care about basketball?)
- Athlon ranks the SEC head coaches. I don’t get how you can put Malzahn ahead of Miles, but that’s just me, I guess.
- Kirby Smart is coaching defensive backs again, drawing upon his experience at Georgia: “He just coaches us at a different level, trying to get us to understand it from his point of view because he played the position and he knows what’s going on…” They should be awesome in run support this year, if that’s the case.
- Today, Quayvon Hicks is Georgia’s only healthy scholarship tight end.
- One reason CAPA is going to Washington: “One obstacle in securing some of the protections we want is the NCAA is colluding and excluding opportunities for trust funds. To solidify an antitrust exemption would be to the detriment of player protections.”
- Malik McDowell has outlasted his momma.
- I missed this when it came out, but Pete Fiutak’s April Fools’ story about Herschel finding a loophole in the NCAA eligibility rules and announcing a return to Georgia is a fun read. Richt then joked, “If you can find an extra year of eligibility for Champ Bailey and Richard Seymour, we’d find a spot for them, too. ”
