Friday morning buffet

New year, new buffet.

  • John Chavis is your new Texas A&M defensive coordinator.  Pay is in the Muschamp range.  Sore point with LSU was a clause in Chavis’ new contract, which he never signed.
  • Seth Emerson tells us something that should come as no surprise after watching the Belk Bowl.
  • I admit that sometimes I’m still a sucker for the romance of college football.  Jonathan Chait swoons over Michigan’s hire of Jim Harbaugh.
  • Shorter Utah AD:  what is this “rift” with Kyle Whittingham to which you refer?
  • “But Coach,” Grange said. “You make money off of football. Why can’t I make money off of football?”
  • And here’s a liberal’s criticism of this era’s head coaching salaries.
  • Mark Richt had a Plan B after Mason’s Belk Bowl injury:  “Then being able to react once we lost Hutson and had to go to Plan B. Plan B was kind of I guess it made it a little bit simpler. Just give it to Nick.”

    Red signed the contract with Champaign movie theater owner CC “Cash and Carry” Pyle under the goal post in Memorial Stadium after the last game. Zuppke wouldn’t talk to him for years!

    I’d be interested to know what people think if the brilliant clock management by Urban last night with a 7 point lead, less than 2 minutes to go so he throws a bomb and stops the clock?

    • That was one of the more head scratching decisions I’ve seen in years. I get that maybe he thought that Alabama wouldn’t expect it and it would be open, but come on.

      He addressed it after the game, said Bama was stacking the box and thought they could hit it and seal the game. He did not shy away at all from it.

      Saban’s clock management has always been bad. He screwed up at the end of the first half against us in 2012 (he said so himself at the halftime interview). He wins in spite of his clock management.

      I think JW might have been weeping on the sidelines late in the game. It had to be emotional knowing it was his last college game. Hard to feel sorry for him, but I hope he gets on the right track and stays there.
      He and Jimbo double-handedly caused FSU to become the nation’s most despised program..(This was pointed out on the broadcast, just before kickoff) . If the Admin at FSU doesn’t notice and fix it, they should be ashamed.

        Interesting if JW doesn’t leave and Braxton Miller transfers to Tally. FSU needs to distance themselves fro Winston as he has become toxic and a lightening rod for snarky remarks anytime FSU is mentioned. And Dumbo has botched the handling of discipline so badly the Noles will be a joke for decades to come, just like Miami. The transgressions weren’t as filthy as The U, and it hasn’t lasted as long, but the HC inserted himself right into the middle, voluntarily, and fumbled every chance. It came on to roost, again, when Winston disrespected his coach publicly on the sideline. The kid still thinks rules do not apply, NFL owners be forewarned.

      • Looked to me like Jimbo let Winston talk him into going for it on the 4th down in the first half. May not have made a difference with such a margin of victory but that really seemed to be a major turning point. Not that I think going for it was bad but it was a terrible play that seemed to be all about Winston making sure HE got the TD.

        To give Winston credit, though, he did shake hands after the game while most of his team didn’t. I did have to laugh at Herbstreit going on about FSU’S lack of sportsmanship as if sportsmanship hasn’t been an afterthought for some time. He just wanted to take a shot at FSU as if they’re alone in that boat. The common taters are really getting out of hand. I’m just glad guys like Fowler, Blackledge and Nessler are still around and mostly stick to calling the game without all their unneeded opinions on personal things.

          Herbstreit also declared late in the game that FSU had quit, which is a bit too broad a brush to paint over every player on the field. I’m sure he’ll be warmly welcomed on the FSU campus the next time GameDay shows up there.

    The advocates of benching Mason mid-season were obviously extremely wrong. As myself and others said at the time if Bobo and Richt know anything its quarterbacks and Hutson despite some imperfections was our best chance to win this year.

        I’ve quit DawgSports over this. All season long the irrational Mason-bashing was absurd. As it continued even in the bowl game, that was enough. The editors and participants at DS are certainly of a different quality than when TKK was running the show. Too bad…it was good for in game commentary.

          I like Macon Dawg and a couple of others but the run of the mill posters have gone to hell in a hand basket over there.

    Seems like we have been going to Plan B since the Mizzou game.

    I would suggest “Plan B” as Chubb’s nickname, but it’s just not badass enough.

  7. I tend to think Chavis leaving LSU was about more than just money. It’s not talent because Louisiana is always loaded with high school defensive talent and LSU has all but closed the borders of that state.

  8. Totally agree on Harbaugh. The best thing for football is good programs.

    Would love to see Bobo back at UGA in a few years.

    Neither here nor there but my goodness how small does the ball look in Ramsey’s hands in that photo? Looks like a ball an 8th grader would be playing with.
