Scrimmages tell us everything about a team. Except when they don’t.

One of the things I most admire about the trollery we’re subjected to in these parts this time of year is its intellectual rigor.

Any stat from any scrimmage is fair game to spin a complete picture of… well, everything from the prospects of divisional contention to how a starting quarterback should be selected.  Obviously most of the concern is of the negative variety – after all, that’s kind of the point to trolling in the first place, no? – but it seems that only Georgia will suffer negative consequences in the take from a controlled scrimmage.

It’s never that way for, say, Missouri.  Funny how that works.

Tuesday morning buffet

A little of this, a little of that…

  • This is awkward.
  • A.J. Turman’s good spring is getting him some attention.
  • Florida is now down to six healthy scholarship linemen for the final three spring practices, including the spring game Saturday.  Maybe Boom can make another crack about McElwain’s dog.
  • You don’t like how Georgia’s spring scrimmages have gone?  Check out Missouri’s.
  • Speaking of scrimmages, it sounds like Auburn’s got a ways to go to meet it eight bombs a game goal.
  • The Pac-12 ponders furthering its academic mission by going into competition with the likes of IMG.
  • Seth Emerson looks down the stretch of Georgia’s spring practice.

Breaking spring, ctd.

“Let’s be careful out there” cuts many ways.  Just ask Dak Prescott.

Which makes this the smartest thing a college athlete has tweeted this year:

Bob Stoops, Hugh Freeze feels your pain.

Ugly story here about how a racist chant from members of a University of Oklahoma fraternity captured on video has led to the shuttering of the campus fraternity by its national organization and an investigation from the school.

The reason I mention it here is because of the interesting reactions it garnered from members of the Oklahoma football team.  If the sentiment mentioned in the following tweet isn’t the essence of what college life is like for many of them, I don’t know what is:

Maybe, but it doesn’t sound like they let you stay, either.

Don’t think this won’t come up on the recruiting trail.  Just ask Ole Miss about that.

Good for Stoops.
