Big Ten’s shit gettin’ real, man.

Boy, this is guaranteed to send Greg Sankey over the edge.

Although it would be worth the price of admission to find out if Corch still has a grudge against certain members of the Florida media.  And vice versa.  Seat 37F rides again, baby!

  1. Doesn’t the fact they’re moving or talking about moving a week of spring practice 1,000 miles from their campus confirm that Ann Arbor and C-bus suck?

    I drove by the Olympic rowing venue outside Gainesville the other day. It is slammed this time of year with rowing teams from all over. I think maybe even Michigan comes down to train.

    Made me wonder what other sports may go on a spring-training trip and if we’re being unfair criticizing Harbaugh and Meyer. Damn … I hate being objective about those guys!

    Y’all help me figure out if there’s a difference, other than being right in IMG’s backyard.

    • The rowing teams do that because they don’t have access to good water right now (I assume). Harbaugh & Meyer don’t have a reason other than if their practice fields are still under 4 feet of snow.

    Not sure how a one week “paid vacation” doesn’t constitute a fringe benefit. It isn’t like they cannot practice on their home field. Many of the baseball teams have always had a week of away games to warmer climates but that is actual games, this silliness is over and above without any practical rationale. Why not the Middle East for those guys? At least they could consider it educational.

    Saban just announced he will take his team to the Bahamas next Spring..Auburn just countered with Rio. Meanwhile, GT is considering Hawaii, but the genius says the airfair would be prohibited and it will be along ride, but they’ll have to take the bus.

      Bama wouldn’t simply take their team to an island. Bama would just buy an island for practice. Or, more likely, they would buy an abandoned oil platform. They would retrofit it with the latest in bio science technology and conduct secret training completely off the grid from prying eyes. They’ll call it the Sports Process Elite Champion Training Research Engine (or S.P.E.C.T.R.E. for short).

    • The GT Athletic Dept originally committed to the HI trip…but then went on a tour of San Diego–so Johnson fired the whole bunch then walked around angrily muttering a something about a commitment being a commitment and how they shouldn’t have to look at other places, for the next week and a half.

    I kinda think screw ’em if they wanna poach Florida. They’re admitting home state weakness, working against Florida and Miami, and our business is in Georgia.

      Precisely. Athens is pretty dang nice, especially if you can manage to pay attention to all the azaleas and dogwoods, etc…

      Yeah, but when the pressure increases in Florida, Florida, FSU and Mia will work harder in Georgia to make up the difference. It ain’t good.
      Somebody needs to let their offensive linemen know that if they enjoyed their vacation in the South, there are schools here that are willing to deal.

    Seriously, who cares? I feel a little embarassed for anyone getting worked up about this, especially SEC brass. And hiding behind the idea of protecting the sanctity of Spring Break is a joke. I’d have more respect for Sankey if he’d just come out and say they’re worried about it affecting recruiting.
