Around the world of college football:
- Bert has an interesting approach to motivating his players: y’all suck, really.
- Gotta love the SEC’s response to the Tennessee mess — a slap on the wrist with a $250,000 penalty and a promise to review UT’s alcohol availability policy, because, you know, stuff like that never happened before you could buy a beer in the stadium.
- Georgia announced an enhancement to its NIL program, allowing its student-athletes to use the school’s official trademarks and logos.
- Speaking of marketing, long time reader Chris Robinson has put together a line of hats and visors promoting you know what. Check ’em out on Instagram @buckheadbrimco.
- JT Daniels’ health appears to be improving. Bye week, for the win!
- And speaking of health, Smart was asked about George Pickens’ recovery time. Florida, maybe? “There’s a long term plan there, but I don’t disclose timelines on that kind of stuff,” Smart said. “Probably the week of the game we’d know more. We did a walk-through yesterday and he was able to do that, get signals, get calls. He’s done a tremendous job of working in recovery.” So he’s saying there’s a chance? Yeah!
- Is Dan Mullen’s seat the hottest in the SEC?
- Conference USA sent a letter to the AAC asking about reorganizing the two conferences on the basis of geography. Instead, the AAC is expanding by adding six Conference USA schools. Talk about your “you can have my answer now, Senator” response.
- Scott Cochran is back at Butts-Mehre, but not back as special teams coordinator yet.
- On a sad note, a reader who was a member of the Redcoats passed this on to me to share with y’all: “One of my instructors on the drum line, John Moates, was married to an instructor of the Redcoats flagline, Cassie, who just passed — tragically, days after she had delivered their third daughter. John has been an instructor for 10 years now, and I believe Cassie had been helping out just as long.” There is a GoFundMe set up for her, at https://gofund.me/dd1449c6.
