Sunday morning buffet

There’s always something to fill the chafing dishes.

  • Mark Richt thinks Malcolm Mitchell is growing up.
  • The Notre Dame bloggers are really getting into Brian VanGorder‘s tactics.
  • Has QB guru George Whitfield, Jr. fudged his résumé?  And if so, will anyone care?
  • If you wonder why the Big Five don’t just take their footballs home and start a new organization outside of the NCAA, Andy Staples offers one good reason:  “The cynical among us might also mention they like being tax-exempt; an organization made up solely of those five conferences might not be.”
  • Behold the awesomeness that is the early schedule of the SEC Network.  Gotta have it!
  • Tennessee sure is going through walk-ons like it’s nobody’s business.
  • Does one of the proposals adopted this week in Destin mean what I think it means? “Increase bowl revenue distribution in football and require all teams to be financially responsible for all guaranteed ticket purchases” sounds like the conference won’t be pitching in to cover expense shortages due to unsold tickets any more.  Of course the SEC is stepping in on the front end to limit the size of those packages, but in an age when the bowls are being told to pick for rankings over commercial popularity, that’s a change that could bear watching.
  • Mark Richt likes Mike Bobo a lot more as a coach than he did as a recruit.

    Looks like Richt understood some of the criticism on here about Bobo. Perception played the largest factor as far as I’m concerned and that’s borne out from Bobo’s words that he hasn’t changed in his play calling.

    You can just visualize Bobo’s pass game clicking and then sending Gurley to not only get his yards but also affecting attitudes and wills as well. Great a&w for us; bad a&w for them. Senator, this football Viagra is going to cause permanent erections that will make Dawgporn dangerous to some (me for sure) this summer. While the condition helps keep our feet dry, would you consider letting some of us old farts out of Dawgporn class early? I was going to say “Give us a heads up”, but ……

    Minor thread hijack (I mean, it is the Sunday buffet, right?)…settlement reached in EA Sports lawsuit. $48 if athletes name was used on roster in game, $951 if image was used. As many as $100,000 players dating back to 2003, $40mm total settlement.

    The damn is breaking….

    In other news, ticket prices for meaningful 2015 home games against the Jaguars, Warhawks, and Eagles are going up!

    Thankfully there will still be only four teams in the college football playoffs that year.
