So this is what a man who’s lost every shred of decency and self-awareness sounds like.

- “The top ten most talented teams in the country last year were Alabama, Ohio State, USC, Notre Dame, Florida State, LSU, Auburn, Georgia, Texas, and Michigan.”
- You know the old joke about someone being so incompetent he could screw up a one-car funeral? That would be Rutgers’ AD.
- According to his dad, Pennsylvania’s D’Andre Swift was really impressed by the G-Day crowd: “To be able to walk into the stadium and be a part of it and walk down and watch the guys coming through the ‘DawgWalk’ and see all the tradition that Georgia has was just remarkable. I’ve never seen how a town shuts down for a game. That city is a college football town, and everybody embraces that tradition and the football program fully. That, to me, was just remarkable about Georgia in every way.” If you were there, take a bow.
- The ACC is already trying to figure out what to do if Clemson, FSU and Louisville all wind up 11-1.
- Good point in this post — if Missouri is an improved team in the SEC East, don’t forget that Florida and Tennessee both have yet to play the Tigers.
- Hugh Freeze notes one difference between Kirby Smart’s defenses at Alabama and Georgia: “He’s playing a lot more odd front. I’m sure he’s adjusting to what he thinks is best for his team. It’s been different from what we expect from them, but the results are well for him.”
- Cool game management, Clay Helton. You’re lucky Stanford didn’t have a two-point trick play up its sleeve.
Mark Bradley being Mark Bradley aside, anyone who uses last Saturday’s squeaker against Nicholls to justify questioning Georgia’s talent level doesn’t know nearly as much about college football as he’d like to make us believe he does.
After all, you know how some coaches love offensive linemen with a nasty streak.
Larry Fedora’s got a big game coming up on national TV against an SEC opponent, but I guess he’s got enough spare time on his hands to deal with the inevitable backlash from hiring Tim Beckman, who, when we last checked in on him, was getting bounced from Illinois for mistreating some of his players.
At least that’s what everyone else says. Fedora’s got the real poop.
“I don’t believe everything I read, all right,” Fedora said, according to the Raleigh News & Observer. “I know Tim. I know his side of the story, also. So I was comfortable with it. If I wouldn’t have been, obviously I wouldn’t have brought him. I wouldn’t have allowed him to be in our program.”
He continued: “I know (criticism is) going to happen, and then a couple of days from now it won’t be news. I mean, I promise you, I didn’t see anywhere where the NCAA said that he should be banished from the game of football. You know?
“I mean, the guy didn’t win enough games. That’s all it was.”
You gotta love it — “I hired him, so that’s proof in and of itself he didn’t do anything bad.”
How many of Kirby Smart’s opposing coaches already have non-game distractions to deal with this season?
… Bob Bowlsby would be in line for a gold medal.
In case you were wondering how it was going in the Big 12 after the scandals at Baylor, here’s this thought from Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby at Big 12 media days:
… But let it suffice to say as it pertains to all of our institutions, we are very committed as a group of ten schools to eradicating sexual assault on our campuses. It almost goes without saying that when you combine alcohol and drugs and raging hormones and the experiences of 18-22 years old, it’s probably unrealistic to think that these kinds of things are never going to happen.
All that’s missing is sincere advice to victims everywhere to lie back and enjoy it if it should happen.
Raging hormones lead to rape? It’s rather staggering to hear someone say this. And in any event, it isn’t alcohol that causes sexual assault; it’s the one doing the assaulting who causes that.
So, yeah, this is sad and even a bit revolting. And if Bowlsby’s a dumbass for saying it, what do we call the school presidents who think he’s doing a bang up job as Big 12 commissioner?
Among the many things I’ll never understand about my fellow man…
Wherever she goes in and around Cedartown, at the grocery store or gas station, work, or whenever she’s somewhere that she’s recognized as Nick Chubb’s mama, Lavelle Chubb gets the questions.
“How’s Nick?” people ask.
“Is Nick going to be able to play?”
“Is he gonna play against North Carolina?”
“Is he gonna be as good as he was?”
If they’re delivered to her in the right spirit, Ms. Chubb always does her best to answer them. If not, she’ll handle them differently.
“It’s expected,” she said of the constant queries. “They’re fans. The majority of them are genuinely concerned. When they’re not, I know how to walk away and still be polite.”
… what kind of person goes up to Nick Chubb’s mother to give her a hard time about her son’s health?
