Life on the SEC recruiting trail, a continuing series

I bet Phil Fulmer truly regrets not being at Tennessee right now.

What you get when Jimmy Sexton is your agent.

Mind you, that’s not for winning it, just for getting to Atlanta.  Well played, Mr. Sexton.

Another football wish for today

If the Pitt head coaching spot is indeed open, I’d love to see the school hire Junior as its next head coach and have him bring Ed Orgeron along for the ride, if only so we could watch James Franklin’s head explode as he has to deal with the both of them on the recruiting trail.
