Thursday morning buffet

Grab a plate and dig in, folks.

  • Nick Robinson has decided to transfer.  I can’t say I’m surprised, but I do think he can play a little.
  • Marshall Long isn’t on campus yet, but he’s already thinking about how he’ll punt to North Carolina’s return man.
  • Led by a disappointing ESPN, Disney missed on its earnings targets.
  • The Washington Post looks at the Redskins’ seventh-round draft pick, Keith Marshall.
  • Spoilsport alert“An Omaha man is suing the University of Nebraska in an attempt to curb the balloon release tradition that happens at Husker football games, citing a 1976 federal law governing waste disposal.”  (h/t)
  • Over at Dawgs247, Jake Rowe takes a stab at projecting a depth chart for Georgia’s offense.  The pleasant surprise (for me, at least) is that the wide receiver roster no longer gives me heart palpitations.
  • Why is Texas staying quiet in realignment talks?  Because it can.

    That piece on Marshall was fun to read. If they really wanted to tout his best highlights, I’d have included that fingertip TD catch against Nebraska and his stiff-arm vs. Kentucky. Oh yeah, and The Windmill against Auburn. At any rate, he’s a good Dawg and good person. I wish KM the best.

    Texas is like the leg being eaten away with gangrene, you hate to lose a major limb but you aren’t going to get better until you part ways. Texas has been extremely self centered and myopic throughout this whole process and the only reason the conference hasn’t challenged the SEC for conference supremacy. Cut them loose before they wreck any chance of staying viable, if they run OU away, the whole thing collapses anyway.

    • Texas has been extremely self centered and myopic throughout this whole process…

      Gosh, Mac, who’s been altruistic? Every school looks out for its own best interests first.

        As with Maslow’s Pyramid, many, many people (and institutions/corporations) reach a point where they consider the greater good, even if for some very selfish reasons. I know that flies in the face of your “money drives everything” philosophy, but I have seen it too many times. Texas needs to look at more than just the current, incoming flow of funds. Shit happens, and karma can be a real bitch.

        • If you’re Texas, you know you can leave the Big 12 any time you want and land in the place of your choosing. Keeping the conference together under those terms isn’t going to have the same high priority it does for, say, Iowa State.

          And like it or not, money drives the Big 12 just like any other place. Else it wouldn’t be going through the convolutions over expansion and a championship game right now.

          I knew you would things our way comrade. From each according to their ability, to each according to their need.

    Damn, Nick, I was going to push you for Heisman, but no one would generate a QBR. Best of luck and not too sure you need it. Keep in touch.

    Agree about the receiver position being a ‘pleasant surprise’. This was an area of concern and suddenly it looks better than solid. We have a good mix, receivers with speed and possession receivers that use their bodies in traffic…add in the TE’s and we have buffet for the QB to choose. If our OL improves and Chubb returns, our O should greatly improve…even if the QB remains the same.
