Corch gonna Corch.

I’d tell Urban Meyer to act like he’s been there, but I’m afraid this is how he acts like he’s been there.

“I have a lot of communication with teachers.”

The next time somebody mentions the sacred role of academics in collegiate football, make sure you bring up Rutgers, where a head football coach can do this…

  • Flood met with the professor off-campus, and contacted the professor through subsequent emails, after he was told by a member of the academic support staff “that he is not to have contact with any faculty member regarding a student’s academic standing.”

  • When the faculty member agreed to “review an additional paper” to possibly help Barnwell’s standing in the class, Flood helped Barnwell by providing “grammatical and minor editorial suggestions to the submitted paper.”

… and walk away with a three-game suspension.

Then again, after seeing this,

“Coach Flood exemplifies our university’s standards and values both on and off the field,” Rutgers President Robert Barchi said last September after executing the extension. “He has put together a strong coaching staff that supports our mission to compete well both in the classroom and on the field.”

… maybe we should wonder why the school is being so tough on him.  Maybe it’s simply that with everything else that’s gone on at Rutgers lately, he’s just gotten lost in the weeds.

Thursday morning buffet

Indulge yourselves.

  • As the Auburn-Louisville game in Atlanta approaches, prepare to hear more of this.
  • Regrets, Gene Chizik has a few.
  • Mark Schlabach predicts this is Steve Spurrier’s last season.
  • Delusional optimism, And The Valley Shook style.
  • Kids, these days.
  • Spurrier, on Finebaum“Every now and then when I listen in to your show, I know the SEC fans are a little upset at Ohio State’s schedule and rightfully so to tell you the truth.” 
  • We’ve known Bobby Petrino’s an ambitious dick.  We just didn’t know how far back that went. “He opted to join the Tigers without informing his boss, Tom Coughlin, who was alerted of his offensive coordinator’s departure through an Auburn news release.”  And so, a legend was born.
  • Les Miles overdosed on coffee this week?  Sure, I can see that.

Talent isn’t everything.

At least not if you’re comparing Georgia to Michigan State.

Where there’s smoke, there’s fired.

Color me a little surprised with the speed of the decision, but Illinois just announced the firing of Tim Beckman, a week before the start of the season.  Must’ve been one hell of an internal investigation.

“No matter where he gets the ball, Chubb is the most difficult running back to tackle in college football. “

Pretty cool piece comparing Nick Chubb and Ezekiel Elliott.

I wouldn’t kick either one of ’em out of my backfield.
