They never learn.

I’d ask why on earth a Florida player would say something like this…

… but then I remember who his coach is.  At least he only has a few more days before he’ll find out.

When they tell you it’s not about the spite…

These Alliance people sound like a bunch of arrogant fucks.

“The Big Ten, ACC and Pac-12 all sponsor a lot of sports. We all celebrated our Olympians,” the administrator said. “The SEC is so football-dominant. Their philosophy is not on the same page.”

Kinda reminds me of the time Jim Delany waxed patronizing about the SEC.

(By the way, the SEC won more medals at this past Olympics than the Big Ten and ACC.)

So much winning

TCU’s Chancellor sounds like… well, you decide.

I’d probably use another adjective there.  But I give him credit for finding a way to stretch the ol’ “doing it for the kids” excuse.

Again?

Writing checks with your mouth your defensive coordinator can’t cash

Bold talk from a Gator:

“Our points are not going to be as high this year,” Miller said, “so we plan on shutting people out this year. That’s the expectation for my defense.”

You know what Mike Tyson said about plans, my man.

Today, in (preseason) talk is cheap

Barrett Sallee includes this nugget on his list of post-spring overreactions for each SEC team:

Florida: Third-and-Grantham is a thing of the past

Defensive coordinator Todd Grantham has been a lightning rod for criticism after a lackluster season in 2020. That has changed … at least according to head coach Dan Mullen. It’s nearly impossible to have a steadfast opinion on Florida’s spring due to the lack of spring game and access. But Mullen touted Grantham’s defense after every scrimmage, which is music to the ears of Florida fans. If that translates to the fall, then look out, SEC East.

And what song will Mullen be singing after the 2021 season is over, I wonder.

After hiring Josh Heupel, Danny White may not be the AD Vol fans want, but is he the AD they need?  Or deserve?  Discuss.

Use the force, Luke.

Kirby’s been just as flattering about Cincinnati.  Sounds like those bulletin boards are gonna be barren.
