Throwaway year in Knoxville

Of all the postmortem tributes to Booch, I hope he can help me and the teammates around me might be the saddest.

Pruitt’s definitely got his work cut out for him.

The art of making lemonade out of lemons

Found this of interest:

Sounds like ball control and efficiency are the keys to making the most out of what you’ve got, if you’re not a recruiting powerhouse.  Certainly, there’s more than one way to skin those particular cats, but if you were going to pick an offensive scheme that was best for running clock and keeping your defense off the field, what would you choose?

Today, in real world economics

Grant Newsome is a Michigan football player… er, student-athlete, who has a few bones to pick with a certain organization.

Maybe some of y’all can fansplain to Grant how it’s really not in his best interest to get paid for his likeness.  The poor kid really sounds mixed up there.

“I think it’s nuts.”

If there’s one thing that scares me a little, it’s finding out that once in a while I think just like Paul Johnson.

“(If they adopt this proposal), is it in your best interests to make sure all your guys are under 3.3?” said Johnson, who is only verbalizing what every college football coach is thinking. “If you’re allowing a one-time transfer rule and tying it to a high enough GPA or whatever, what are you telling the schools who don’t want to lose their guys? What are they going to do, keep them from being a 3.3? You know how people are going to do it. They’re going to do what’s in their best interests.”

If the proposal passes, maybe everyone will make their players take calculus.

White punks on dope

I’m betting when the gory details are revealed about this SEC West Crime of the Century, we’ll discover that either alcohol or fraternities were involved.  Or, even more likely, both.
