Brave Sir Dabo

Dabo Swinney, unafraid.

When you next see him and his $7 million paycheck standing nobly on the sideline, unconcerned about the risk of possible injury, remember to commend him for his courage.

I’m kind of impressed with the way he sells this bullshit, almost like he actually believes it.

Everyone has the right to change his mind.

Nick Saban, full of shit?  Color me surprised, surprised.

Maybe he had Reggie Ball draw up his ballot.

Whatevs, Nick.

Let’s see… Georgia traveled to Missouri, played a game in which it never trailed, in which its win probability, according to ESPN, never dropped below 75% (and never below 90% in the second half), defended Drew Lock into his worst performance of the season and Nick Saban draws this as a conclusion:

Yeah, and monkeys could very easily fly out of his ass.

Alabama’s season is so good, it’s degrading Saban’s ability to po’ mouth.

Er, wut?

… A person close to the program told The Athletic that senior university officials have begun discussions about a “coach-in-waiting” arrangement, meaning he would be Meyer’s eventual successor as Buckeyes coach. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the discussions are in progress. Day doesn’t have any head-coaching experience but did have a three-game trial run as Ohio State’s interim coach.

Urban Meyer is 54.  Unless he’s headed for another bout of “Elizabeth, I’m coming to meet you” heart issues, he’s not going anywhere for a while, especially considering he knows he’s at a place that will turn a blind eye to his… um, personality quirks.

So who’s this supposed to fool?

A sign it’s time for the opening of August camp

C’mon, Kirby.

I love Campbell as much as anyone, but that ain’t happening unless Baker has an unfortunate run in with Mudcat’s car.

“I feel like everybody’s on the same page, and they get it.”

I guess this means the only barrier stopping the genius from kicking ass on the recruiting trail is now relegated to the dust bin of history.

By the time everyone at Georgia Tech figures out the scam, Johnson will be looking to retire, anyway.  At least they’ll have those spiffy Adidas uniforms to remember him by.

Today, in damning with faint praise

Talk about your “of all the coaches I know, he’s certainly one of them” takes, here’s Alabama’s Damien Harris on new face in town Butch Jones:

“I think he’s going to do a great job and get with the coaches however he can. Whatever his job … I don’t really know what an analyst is supposed to do but whatever he’s supposed to do, I’m sure he’s going to do it at a very high level.”

Boy, I hope Booch puts that on his résumé.  It’s nothing less than what you’d expect to hear about a five-star champion of life.
