What is it about LSU head coaches putting things in their mouths their mommas would have told them to spit out when they were six years old?

If it’s SEC Media Days, there are plenty of tidbits to sample:
- Maybe it’s the SEC’s year of the offensive line.
- Booch just can’t let the clichés go.
- Can anyone in the East catch up to Saban?
- Good news: Trent Thompson ‘should be full go’ for preseason practices. Eh, skip that. It’s great news.
- Damn, this is harsh: “Orgeron is LSU’s white flag of surrender. He’s like a mixture of Mike Shula, Mike DuBose and Coach Red Beaulieu from the Adam Sandler movie “Waterboy.””
- If you’re looking for ten minutes of Gary Danielson at SEC Media Days, here you go.
- And if you want the full 25 minutes of Kirby’s presser, here ’tis.
- Roquan Smith had a great 2016 playing with a busted shoulder. Imagine what’s in store for him now that he’s healthy.
I have no idea what this means, but it sounds like fun.
The NCAA has rules against “camp blocking”?
If you watched any of the LSU-TAMU game last night, you were informed of the developing soap opera surrounding the LSU and Texas jobs and Tom Herman, who is likely going to wind up being a much better paid human being in another month.
It almost seemed like an afterthought, but LSU kicked a little ass on the road, scoring the most points on an Aggies defense since Alabama whupped up 59 a couple of seasons ago (pre-Chavous). The win led to this interesting factoid:
I don’t know if that makes him head coaching material, but it appears it’s not a bad idea as an AD to have him as a member of the football staff in case things go south with your head coach and you need a backstop to make it through the end of the season.
There’s always something to spoon onto your plate.
- Here’s something you don’t see every day – ESPN is suing Notre Dame.
- Ed Orgeron’s voice mail sounds like Ed Orgeron’s voice mail.
- Which colleges spend the most and least on men’s athletics recruiting?
- “The NCAA has surrendered.” Yeah, that’s the lesson you want Penn State supporters to learn from the Sandusky/Emmert debacle.
- It’s time to acknowledge that Old Spurrier is now a full-blown meme.
- Gentry Estes lists five Georgia players on the spot for spring practice.
- After football, UAB prepares to plead for its Conference USA life.
- Evidently we should be careful throwing stones at the Patriots for deflating footballs.
- The NCAA spent more on Congressional lobbying in 2014 than it did in the three previous years combined. Gee, I wonder why.
If the Pitt head coaching spot is indeed open, I’d love to see the school hire Junior as its next head coach and have him bring Ed Orgeron along for the ride, if only so we could watch James Franklin’s head explode as he has to deal with the both of them on the recruiting trail.
Mmm, mmm good.
- Any time you see the line “An NCAA spokesman was unavailable for comment.”, it’s probably not good news.
- How badly does Ed Orgeron want to coach? Badly enough to want the Kansas job.
- Another mascot vote? Maybe they should just go ahead and retire the award.
- “Conduct detrimental.” Da’Rick would have had a helluva career at Georgia, if he hadn’t changed his mind at the last minute. Of course, he would have wound up at Auburn.
- For fiscal year 2012-3, Georgia generated $51.3 million in excess revenue from football.
- And that was without dynamic ticket pricing.
- My favorite tidbit from Cory Brinson’s Vanderbilt preview: “Vandy ranks just behind Georgia Tech in passing offense. Yes, passing offense.”
- You’d think if any offense would be well suited to running play-option pass plays, it would be Georgia’s.
