Smile. It’s Friday afternoon.

That ain’t bad.  Not even a little bit.

Butthurt Junior is the best Junior.

Imagine the Laner getting his panties in a wad over somebody wanting attention.

“It’s definitely a win in our books.”

In a shocking development, the NCAA Division I Council actually passed something sensible.  Two things, actually:

College athletes who have enrolled in summer school and received athletics financial aid can transfer and play immediately without a waiver if their head coach departs before the first day of classes for the fall term. Additionally, walk-on student-athletes on teams that provide athletics aid and nonrecruited walk-ons can transfer and play immediately without a waiver. Those rules are effective for students who transfer to new schools this fall.

Good job, folks.

Oh, and this happened, too.

The Council also defeated a proposal that would have required schools to count financial aid for some postgraduate transfers against team limits for two years, regardless of whether the student remained enrolled after exhausting athletics eligibility. The proposal would have applied only to student-athletes competing in football and basketball.

I bet those lower division coaches are pissed right now.

Hmmm… this sounds vaguely ominous.

During a recent appearance on Atlanta-based radio station 680 The Fan, Smart was asked if he was aware of Florida’s trolling of Georgia.

“Yeah, I heard,” Smart replied.

As for a response, Georgia’s coach didn’t really want to go there.

“I’m really comfortable not talking about it,” Smart said when asked for his response.

My guess is that he’ll be really comfortable watching his team bludgeon the Gators in Jacksonville, too.

Again, trolling only works when you can back it up, Dan.  See, for example, the Evil Genius.

“He’s got a B in a class and he’s never made a B before.”

I don’t know if I’m more impressed with Nakobe Dean pursuing an engineering degree or with the coaching staff letting him pursue an engineering degree.

Well played, all concerned.

These spring practice notes are making me horny.

First off, major kudos to Seth Emerson ($$) for printing a warning about drawing G-Day conclusions without making an obligatory reference to QBR.

But the real point to this post is to tell those of you who don’t subscribe to The Athletic what you’re missing:  the part of his article referenced under “A few things we’ve learned” may be the purest and longest dose of Dawg porn I’ve read in 2019.  I’m not sure there’s a shower cold enough for afterwards.  And that’s after reading it yesterday.

Things can change, obviously, but this program is in a very good place right now, and that’s before a few more likely 2019 contributors arrive this summer.

Can I bum a cigarette off one of you?
