Two great tidbits from this SI.com profile of Bobby Petrino’s program (“they may be dicks, but at least they’re consistent!”). First, ol’ Toddster’s still taking the occasional shot when he can:
Despite all that, Grantham turned down chance to join Jack Del Rio’s staff as the Raiders defensive coordinator, an opportunity he admits “excited and interested” him. Grantham credited Jurich—“the best AD I’ve worked for”—and the Louisville community for convincing him to lay roots in the ACC. [Emphasis added.]
Ah, can you feel the love, Greg?
Then, there’s the Second Chance Kickoff Classic, coming your way this fall.
Two players who Grantham coached at Georgia, corner Shaq Wiggins and safety Josh Harvey-Clemons, are eligible transfers and should add immediate talent to a depleted secondary. The Cards’ defense won’t wait long before it faces a true test: The program opens the 2015 season against Auburn in Atlanta.
Harvey-Clemson and Matthews, together again. What do you figure the over/under will be on the number of times the broadcasters bring up you know what during that broadcast? As long as they mention neither is still in a Georgia uniform, I guess we can take it as a backhanded compliment.
