“What is Brittney doing with her life?”

If you’re a Georgia fan, the news that Mike Patrick is retiring from broadcasting should bring one moment immediately to mind.

Todd Blackledge’s reaction is classic.

Today, in why we can’t have nice things

Answering the question of why there aren’t more home-and-home series with quality opponents on Georgia’s schedule, Seth Emerson delivers an explanation that is both succinct and depressing.

So why doesn’t Georgia do more? Frankly, at this point it doesn’t need to. There isn’t much competitive or economic motivation for Georgia to change its scheduling strategy.

All the rest is commentary.

Studs er’rewhere

Let’s face it:  it’s basically impossible to write a best-of-recruiting piece about the 2018 class without having Georgia’s footprint all over it.

Alex, I’ll take potential train wrecks for $200.

Tennessee returns the SEC’s worst offense, brings in a new offensive staff with a different scheme in mind and has personnel questions up and down the roster.  Not exactly a recipe for success in 2018.  Then again, if Pruitt’s defense can shut out every opponent, there’s not much to worry about, amirite?

Mississippi (still) Burning

Shots fired.

Florida’s Dan Mullen and Scott Stricklin, both formerly of Mississippi State, NCAA investigator Mike Sheridan and the NCAA itself have been throw into the Rebel Rags legal saga.

Rebel Rags, the Oxford-based outlet store, filed a lawsuit against Mullen, Stricklin, Sheridan, the NCAA, Mississippi State’s Leo Lewis and Kobe Jones, and Lindsey Miller, Laremy Tunsil’s estranged stepfather, in Lafayette County Circuit Court on Tuesday.

Talk about your motley crew.

The complaint is centered on defamation, civil conspiracy and commercial disparagement. Those are the same allegations the original case, which was filed last June against Lewis, Jones and Miller, are based on. That stems from statements those three provided to the NCAA during its investigation into Ole Miss’ football program.

Rebel Rags alleges that Mullen, Stricklin, Sheridan and the NCAA were a part of an overarching conspiracy, which impacted the outlet store when it was named in the Notice of Allegations.

Well, it’s a theory.

As I like to say, America is a great country — anybody can sue anybody over anything.  Making it stick is a horse of an entirely different color, though.  Still… hey, can you pass that bag of popcorn over this way?
