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.


UPDATE:  Like it or not, it’s a football story.

Good for Stoops.


UPDATE #2:  Quotes, too.


UPDATE #3:  As I said, it’s a football story.


UPDATE #4:  This is the way to respond to prejudiced dumbasses.

“For many people, being a fan becomes a part of their identity.”

That would be the asshole part, I guess.

Mommy, make the bad schools share!

Boy, this is subtle.

In a meeting with the editorial board of the Houston Chronicle, Tilman Fertitta, chairman of UH’s Board of Regents, suggested that the Texas state legislature should pressure and/or threaten the Big 12 into giving UH a spot in the conference.  And by suggested I mean he just flat-out said it.

“Put pressure on the presidents; say, ‘If you don’t do this, we’re not going to fund you for this,’” Fertitta said of the state legislature’s role in meeting his goal. “It’s just the way it is. That’s the way to do it. …

“Be a big boy, step up and put this school that has almost 50,000 students and is so high-profile, has so many of the top schools in the United States, it’s a tier one university — we belong in the Big 12. We’re a big, major school with an unbelievable history in athletics and academia.”

The Texas legislature can’t even get Texas and Texas A&M on the same field anymore, but it’s gonna wade into this?  Sure it will.

Perhaps if ol’ Tilman availed himself of his school’s resources and learned that more Big 12 schools are located outside the state of Texas than inside he wouldn’t sound like such a dope.
