“Nick Saban is frustrated.”

Last night, if the announcers using the words “Saban” and “frustrated” in the same sentence had been a drinking game, I would have been shit faced by the middle of the third quarter.

“He brings a lot to the table.”

It was the best of times; it was the worst of times.

At best, Florida coach Dan Mullen is merely experiencing a down year. At worst, his team has plateaued and needs a leadership change.

The reality is probably somewhere in between.

For now, maybe.  Ask me again in another week.

Meanwhile, I think it’s safe to say this take hasn’t aged well.

“Good coaches are valuable,” Stricklin said before the season. “Dan, I think, is one of the top coaches in college football. You look at all the things he brings to the table from an experience standpoint, from an energy standpoint, from an intelligence standpoint, from an organizational standpoint. Then you add on top he might be the very best at coaching and developing the most important position on the field.

I’m starting to wonder if Stricklin’s seat is getting as warm as Mullen’s.

So he’s saying there’s a chance.

David Hale, on everyone’s favorite nose tackle:

Heisman Five

It’s been an awful year for many of the preseason favorites. But it’s becoming a particularly deep bench of guys who have stepped to the forefront this season.

1. Georgia NT Jordan Davis

The Dawgs were off this week, but here’s a little food for thought: Davis has played 155 snaps this season, and just four of them — four! — were explosive plays for the offense. Overall, opponents are averaging just 2.72 yards per play with Davis in the middle of UGA’s defensive line in 2021. He deserves a spot atop Heisman ballots.

It helps that there really isn’t a dominant quarterback this season, and I’m not saying Davis should win, but he sure as hell deserves an invite to New York with the way he’s played so far.

Kenny Pickett, legend

When you’re 24, you can say this:

Beat a Clemson team that beat your ass in the last ACCCG, you’re entitled to a tasty malt beverage to celebrate.

TFW refs gotta ref

I’m not sure I’d say this is the worst unsportsmanlike conduct penalty I’ve ever seen…

… but it’s at least the worst I’ve seen since that call on AJ Green in 2009.
