Sunday morning buffet

You still get hungry on a long holiday weekend, so here you go.

  • I guess Georgia’s bad luck with offensive linemen follows some of them even after they leave.  Hope he recovers.
  • If I didn’t know any better, I’d suspect Kansas State was deliberately trying to provoke a challenge to the transfer rules by the way it’s handled Leticia Romero’s transfer request.  A union would be worse for her, though.
  • Can the early signing day for football proposal be saved?
  • Now the sharks are really beginning to circle around the antitrust litigation.
  • Fresno State’s Pat Hill knew what was coming a decade ago:  For Fresno State to make the cut, Hill said, the university would have to grow its fan base and invest in infrastructure (i.e. a 70,000-seat stadium) so the big boys could literally not afford to leave the Bulldogs behind.
  • At Georgia, athletics spokesman Claude Felton told the Times-Union the school is against selling alcohol at Jacksonville’s EverBank Field when the Bulldogs play Florida and “would not be in favor of alcohol sales in Sanford Stadium at this time.’’  So you’re saying there’s a chance?
  • This pretty much sums things up:  The NCAA is a product of its own membership. Then again, LSU doesn’t want non-football playing Marquette to have the same voting rights when it comes to deciding how it does business.
  • Thirty-six teams will be banned from the 2014-15 postseason because of sub-par scores on the newest Academic Progress Rate, which was released Wednesday. Not one of them comes from a power conference.”

    Correct, the Early Signing Period does not solve all recruiting problems but it is a huge step ahead of the current process. Allowing schools to “put some hay in the barn” then recalculate their needs and reset the focus on their top targets would be great. For the players, the ones who have made their decision and wish to concentrate on their senior HS year, it gets rid of the pests from both schools, and their boosters. It will also give them a better chance to see exactly where they will stand on a school’s depth chart after the early signing class is done. Schools and players who wish to wait until February are free to do so. Tunsil wasn’t playing games until the end, I believe we would have signed him and both partiers would have been better off.

    Didn’t he leave UGA because we wouldn’t clear him medically to play?

    Side note: While waiting for the tram in Amsterdam today, I overheard an obnoxious sounding hilljack from south Ka-kuh-la-kee, with an obnoxious orange clemson hat on, arguing with his wife about the correct directions to the Van Gogh museum. His wife was actually stating the correct directions. Unfortunate for her, he won the direction argument. I was raised to know better, but I kept my mouth shut and let them walk toward Centraal Station (which is the opposite direction). Sorry but I’m still bitter about Dabo and his overhyped pre-game bus ride…

    The class-action law firms are not sharks, they are noble defenders of the oppressed, in this for the defenseless children and not their own self-interest….or so I was told here at GTP.
