“He was touched.”

That’s a quote that can be interpreted in more than one way.

The more, the merrier

You know, one thing about this

Kirby Smart and the Georgia Bulldogs had a record number of early enrollees this spring, 14, and for 11 of them, Saturday will be the first time they suit up in red and black. Rian DavisRyland Goede, and Trezmen Marshall have all been limited during or held out of the team’s spring practices due to injuries, but for the members of the No. 2 ranked class that will take the field, it’s an opportunity for them to get used to the environment between the hedges.

… is that there should be less of a depth problem than is usually the case on G-Day.

Still, I don’t expect to see much of Fromm or Swift today.  They probably ought to keep Woerner in bubble wrap while they’re at it, too.

Who are you looking forward to watching today?

Such a deal

For the “college players’ compensation includes the fabulous job training and development the schools provide” crowd, here’s a play in three acts.

Shot.

Chaser.

Eh, make it a double, Mr. Hale.

Yeah, but you can’t put a price tag on splashing in a cool waterfall, David.

Today’s slate

Georgia is the only SEC team with a spring game today, but if you’re interested in what else is out there to sample, here’s ESPN’s summary.

I hope they’ve got Mike Leach mic’ed up.

“Resources do matter.”

I imagine Larry Scott somewhere, sipping on a fine bottle of expensive Bordeaux, nodding his head and saying to himself, “this is fine”.

I thought of Mullens’ comment last week when news broke that Purdue coach Jeff Brohm had agreed to a seven-year contract for $5.26 million annually.

What is “drifting out of range”?

It’s when the head football coach at Purdue — Purdue! — makes more money than every coach in the Pac-12.

It’s when the salary pool for Boilermakers assistant coaches is larger than those of every program in the Pac-12 except Washington and Oregon.

Brohm is 13-13 in two years in West Lafayette. He used an offer from Louisville (his alma mater) as leverage to sign a killer deal with Purdue.

The issue here isn’t Brohm specifically.

It’s that a third-tier football program in the Big Ten has the cash and the willingness to pay its coach more than the most accomplished coaches at the top programs in the Pac-12.

Hey, that’s nothing a hedge fund partner can’t fix with a little equity stake, amirite?
