Suppose they gave a second half and nobody came?

Does Samford have to refund part of the guaranty fee since they gave back three minutes?

I keed, I keed, but was one of the more forgettable second halves of Georgia football I’ve set through. I suspect next week is not going to be a fun time to be a Georgia offensive player.

Your game day post, Samford at Sanford edition

As yesterday’s post on the subject indicated, I got nothin’.  You can go read all the three-questions, three-things-I’m-worried-about posts you like, it’s not going to change the fact that the Dawgs are going to win and win comfortably this afternoon.

So, while I’m getting wet, those of you at home, sensibly dry, watching from Section HD, have at it in the comments.

Your (non-Dawg) game day post

Here’s today’s menu:

I guess the marquee matchup this week is ‘Bama traveling to Texas, but I have a hard time seeing this as a close game.

There are several SEC teams that aren’t playing cupcakes this week — South Carolina, Arkansas, Vanderbilt, Tennessee, Kentucky, Florida and Mississippi State — so we should start being able to get a better handle on the conference’s strengths and weaknesses.

What are y’all going to watch today?

“If you don’t want Meyer there, you can vote with your remote.”

Wow — and I do mean wow.  This Richard Deitch takedown of Corch’s return to Fox ($$) is just brutal, and I’m here for every punctuation mark of it.

Look for his on-set colleagues to pay homage to his college success. Normally, I would say that Meyer will try to win the audience by being self-deprecating about his tenure in Jacksonville, but my college football colleagues at The Athletic tell me he is incapable of that

Perhaps Meyer will be a different person upon return. Perhaps sports networks in the future will stop making hires that insult your intelligence. Anything is possible. Maybe I’ll dunk over Giannis Antetokounmpo next month or travel back in time to stop Mark Zuckerberg at Harvard. Amazing things are always possible.

Read the whole thing, preferably before the next “Big Noon Kickoff” pregame show.  It’s a doozy.

“We’re in Year 4, it’s ‘Put up or shut up’ time.’”

Shot.

Despite the final score of Georgia Tech’s season-opening loss to then-No. 4 Clemson on Monday night (it was 41-10, with the Yellow Jackets on the short end), a prominent supporter of the Jackets holds high hopes for coach Geoff Collins’ fourth season.

“I wouldn’t sleep on this team,” Gregg Garrett said in an interview with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I think this team’s going to surprise some people.”

Chaser.

A well-connected supporter, Garrett set two measuring sticks that he believes that Tech will need to achieve for Collins to be granted a fifth season.

“I think it’s really important that we don’t start off 1-4 or worse,” Garrett said. “And I think it’s going to be critically important that this football team is playing in December.”

That is to say, get to six wins and qualify for a bowl game.

“I think those are the two tipping points,” he said.

Who wants to tell him?

These people have been down so goddam long, that it looks like up to them.
