There’s excess. Then there’s wretched excess.

Take this as one of those “when life throws you a fastball down the middle, you’ve got to turn on it” moments:  Auburn lets recruits play Madden on its $14 million dollar scoreboard.

Robin Williams’ comment about cocaine comes to mind about now.

Marketing genius

A Power 5 football commissioner actually said this.

Gee, thanks.  I don’t think that’s how it’s supposed to work, though.

These guys don’t deserve to run a hot dog stand, let alone a major sports enterprise.

Don’t hate a hata.

It’s not every day you see a university chancellor’s office get involved in a pissing match with a college football blogger.  In fact, I’m hardpressed to think of a time when any school released a statement tagging someone with a cow dung reference as a nickname.  (Not that Chip Brown is any paragon of accuracy.)

I’d end this with a bit of “stay classy, dudes” snark, but I think they’re way past that stage already.

Memphis does not go gentle into that good night.

I have no idea what’s behind this, but I can’t help but laugh my ass off about it.

He must be good. Everybody wants him.

Okay, so the drumbeat closing out the Les Miles’ era at LSU grows ever louder.

But don’t worry, LSU fans.  Your savior is near at hand.

Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher is the main target for many foundation members. Other names tossed around include Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney, TCU head coach Gary Patterson and even former NFL coach Jon Gruden.  [Emphasis added.]

If Gruden could charge something for every time his name is brought up by a fan base looking for a new coach, he’d be the richest man in America.

When you need some go-to stupidity…

Shorter Verbatim Matt Hayes“As much as it pains me to admit this perfectly imperfect sport must move closer to the look and feel of the cold, antiseptic NFL, it’s the only way to save it from itself.”

In other words, we have to destroy college football to save it.

There are times when I wonder if we deserve being able to enjoy things.
