Evolution

If you’re trying to put your finger on how Georgia’s offense changed from 2019 to 2020, this data dump might be right up your alley.

Okay, that’s better, but maybe you’re still not that impressed.  Well, this might change your mind.

That’s not your daddy’s manball.  What that is, is an offensive coordinator who’s not as wedded to wasted running plays as his predecessor was and finally has a quarterback he trusts to make throws.  Luckily for us, none of that should change in 2021.

Seth’s survey sez…

If you don’t have an Athletic subscription, trust me, his fan survey is exhaustive (27 topics!).  Two questions, in particular, I thought are worth posting here to get your reaction:

Feel free to opine on those, or, if you have a subscription, any other points Seth raises, in the comments.

The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world a settlement didn’t exist.

So, there’s this.

Former LSU head football coach Les Miles reached a settlement with a former student who accused him of harassment several years ago, and the settlement has surfaced as investigators probe the university’s handling of sexual misconduct and domestic violence complaints, multiple sources with direct knowledge of the situation have confirmed to The Advocate | The Times-Picayune.

The episode goes back about a decade, when a former LSU Athletic Department student intern accused Miles of “hitting on her,” three of the sources said.

The thing is, LSU claims to know nothing about it.

“As part of the Husch Blackwell review and our internal investigations, we have heard about a settlement, but LSU is not a party to it and we have not seen it,” Jim Sabourin, the university’s vice president of strategic communications, said when presented with the allegations Wednesday. Husch Blackwell is the law firm LSU hired to scrutinize the university’s handling of sexual misconduct and other complaints.

Lester himself denies it ever happened.

Reached by phone Wednesday, Miles, now the coach at the University of Kansas, denied he made advances toward a student intern. “That’s not true,” he said.

And his attorney cries, “fake news!”.

A longtime attorney for Miles, New York-based Peter Ginsberg, said in an email Wednesday that a description of Miles’ settlement with the student was “discernibly incomplete and inaccurate, and its publication would recklessly cast Mr. Miles in a false light.”

Sort of, anyway.

Ginsberg did not respond to follow-up questions about whether he was denying the existence of the settlement itself.

I guess it’s easier to deny the existence of something you’ve kept buried for years.

The long-buried settlement — which does not turn up in searches of Baton Rouge court records — has come to light amid a larger review of how LSU has handled allegations of sexual misconduct and domestic violence cases, the sources said.

But I doubt that’s gonna hold up much longer.  That should be awkward.

UPDATE:  Yeah, this figures.

Never let it be said that Jeff Long isn’t one to take advantage of an opportunity when one presents itself.

Todd Monken, sneaky devil?

Wait a minute…

I thought Georgia was prohibited from using its tight ends like that.
