Don’t cry for me, Columbia.

You know how every preseason the media likes to judge South Carolina’s chances on how smug Spurrier is?  Yeah, well…

Maybe it’s time to find a new tell.

Great turnover margin plus field position management

… makes an offense one efficient mofo.

Envy and jealousy, we’ll always have Emmert edition

Charlie Pierce, ladies and gentlemen.

And now it will fall to the NCAA, God help us, to parcel out blame and responsibility and punishment. At this point, of course, the NCAA is little more than a walking conflict of interest, and an absurd one, at that. The NCAA would not exist if players were not paid under the table. The NCAA would not exist if so many of its “member institutions” weren’t playing ethical mumblety-peg with their academic integrity to keep the players eligible and the money flowing everywhere except into the pockets of the people doing all the real work. There is absolutely no way this will end well. There is absolutely no way this will not end hilariously, however.

Ain’t that the truth.

Now they love ’em in Montana.

Welcome the latest pundit’s kiss for the Dawgs.

The question mark at the end there is a nice touch.

Thanks for the Gurley praise, but we’d rather have a decision.

Weiszer neatly bottles up what we’re all seeing from the NCAA right now.

“From the facts that we know today, publicly, Georgia’s behavior has been commendable,” Emmert said in an interview with the Associated Press Monday. “They, apparently, saw something that concerned them, and they dealt with it directly and their athletic department seems to have handled that very, very appropriately based on what we know today.”

Georgia had yet to hear from the NCAA as of Monday night on the reinstatement request for Gurley, who has missed two games while serving an indefinite suspension.

Given how many things Emmert’s gotten wrong, I’m not sure his back patting is of much comfort, either.


UPDATE:  Oh, and Georgia’s on the mother – for Gurley.

“He can’t catch it for them.”

Florida is on its sixth wide receivers coach in six years.  Think that might be a reason the Gators’ passing game blows?

When in doubt, there’s always the weather.

Gotta love Coach Richt.  He’ll never give up on WLOCP issues like the weather.

… Nice to practice in heat today to be more like the weather in Jax, forecast is for mid 70’s at gametime. Normally we practice in cold then go down and play in heat, so this is good for us this year to get in the heat.

Average October temperatures in Athens, Georgia:  from 77°F to 69°F over the course of the month.

Average October temperatures in Jacksonville, Florida:  from 83°F to 76°F over the course of the month

Yeah, that arctic weather in Athens is a total bitch.  It’s a good thing the strength and conditioning program has stepped up.
