Tuesday morning buffet

A little of this, a little of that and pretty soon you’ve got a full buffet.

  • Kirby puts the brakes on the “Deangelo Gibbs is back” talk.
  • If you’re interested, there’s already a lot of movement on some of the early lines for the first week of college football.
  • Florida and TAMU are sponsoring what is sure to be called the Freeze Rule.
  • Here’s a look at the number of quarterback pressures generated by SEC defenses last season.  You’ll be shocked, shocked to learn that Alabama led the conference.
  • It sounds like Todd McNair’s attorneys outsmarted themselves.  No doubt the NCAA will take a win any way it can get one, though.
  • Is it just me, or does it seem like those endless preseason watch lists come out earlier and earlier?
  • Wait a minute — it is a “possibility” that Stetson Bennett could earn a scholarship if he stays with the program?  Thought this kid was a dead lock, SEC-ready beast.  Kirby’s sales pitch: “I certainly respect what he has done this far for the University of Georgia and he’s a really good student as well. We’re selling him on the University of Georgia education.”  Not seeing a lot of playing time in there, but then I’m not as good at reading between the lines as some of you guys are.
  • Florida won the SEC All-Sports Award for a 12th consecutive year and for the 26th time in 27 years.  Georgia, by virtue of having the best showing in women’s sports, finished second.

    I wonder if the cautionary language regarding Gibbs has less to do with his uncertain status with the team and more to do with just not admitting he is “back” until moar process has occurred.

    If memory serves me correctly, isn’t Stetson a good scout player for those “air-raid” offenses we face?

    Selling Stetson on education my foot.

    He’s selling him on this pitch and this pitch only:

    You’ll never be an NFL starter (or backup) and you’ll never be a college starter for a team that’s going anywhere. So you may as well be one of the best scout team QBs in the nation on one of the best teams in the nation and possibly get a National Championship while riding the bench.

      Maybe he’s selling him on the possibility of coming on board as a grad assistant after his college career ends. The chance to learn from Smart and develop in the coaching ranks might be enough to keep him around.

    It’s not just you. Also, I’ve never seen any rhyme or reason to the endless seemingly slapdash release of the “The [Fill In The Blank] Award quarter-semi-super-secret-not-quite-ready-to-take-out-of-the-oven finalists” lists either.
