Wednesday morning buffet

Look at this as a little pre-Thanksgiving football tapas.

  • Yeah, this’ll work.
  • The genius still can’t bring himself to say that the Georgia game is a big deal for him.
  • Polished football played in the South Carolina-South Alabama game: During a sequence of 19 snaps in the second quarter, the teams lost six turnovers – four interceptions and two fumbles.
  • Two things about the estimated payouts from the College Football Playoff and the bowl game revenue sharing system in each conference:  one, as the Big 12 shows, it pays to have less schools to cut the pie for, and, two, the SEC likes to reward its top teams more than other conferences do.
  • Yelling will make Vanderbilt a better football team?  Maybe they need to hire Bobby Knight.
  • Sonny Dykes lays out his theory of the evolution of the spread offense, which boils down to passing teams want to run more and running teams want to pass more.
  • And while we’re on the topic of evolution, here’s a look at how Hutson Mason’s season has evolved.
  • A new SEC tradition – the first edition of the corporate-sponsored “Battle Line Rivalry”.  Oy.
  • If you want to read about a real SEC tradition, this year marks the 50th anniversary of the term “Iron Bowl”.  (And don’t miss the photo of Joe Namath celebrating the win afterwards.)

    Interesting bit about the boot heel of Missouri. It’s got nothing on burning down Lawrence, though.


    • Yeah, but the article had a huge error. It said the legislation putting the bootheel area in Missouri added an area that spanned 984 miles. That is remarkably wrong; that would have taken the Missouri state line almost to the Pacific Ocean. It added an area of 984 square miles. Sixth grade math teaches the difference.

        Good point; but it would be about half way to the Pacific Ocean unless California, Nevada, Utah, and part of Colorado have fallen into the ocean.

    Clearly, Georgia is just another game to Paul TheJohnson. His record against Georgia seems to reflect that.

    So do you think our PA guy will announce the team as “your SEC east champion Georgia Bulldogs” if Arky wins?!

    Anybody notice the 9.0 earthquake taking placing in knoxvegas? a.j. johnson had his cell phone, computer, used condoms, etc. confiscated as evidence by cops. Either johnson messed with a girl from the wrong family, or there’s been a tidal wave seachange with the way ut administers discipline.

    Of course, we all know it wasn’t long ago they put a cop in intensive care with impunity. So ya gotta think this is a big deal.

    I don’t want to beat up on Vandy….well maybe I do….but has there ever been a bigger turnaround from being down, then up, then back down even lower, in the history of college football? Just my opinion but Derek Mason may be the worst head coach in D-IA football. In one season he has totally destroyed whatever positives were left over by Franklin. This is what you get when you hire a glorified position coach to be the head of your program. All you guys out there who were so hot to hire Kirby Smart take note.
