Jeremy Pruitt: “He’s like that father figure if you do something well, he’s not going to compliment you.”

And your spring defensive MVP is… nobody.

Because that’s how Pruitt rolls.

Wednesday morning buffet

I’ve got the chafing dishes fired up for you…

  • Carvell asks a bunch of coaches if early signees should be let out of their NLIs if the head coach is gone from the program before the February signing day.  Most said yes.  (Although Stoops has a point when he says, “No, because I believe you sign with the school – with the school and with the program. I believe that’s why you sign. You sign to go to school at that university. If that’s not what you’re doing, then you don’t need to sign early.”)
  • Athlon ranks the SEC football coaching jobs.  Georgia is third.
  • Charlie Strong and Kevin Sumlin want their schools to play each other.  (“Can you imagine Florida not playing Florida State or South Carolina not playing Clemson?” Strong said.)  Good thing Steve Patterson is there to maintain the status quo!
  • The NCAA claims that some members of its Committee on Infractions received “violent threats” after the materials in the McNair litigation were released, although it remains mum on the details.
  • And here’s a power ranking of the SEC’s cross-divisional games in 2015.  Georgia is, understandably, tops in the East, but check out what the author has to say about LSU’s supposedly tough draw.  “The Tigers have won four of the last five vs. the Gators, but again, Florida is one of the most dangerous teams in the country” sounds like something straight out of Joe Alleva’s mouth.
  • Barrett Sallee is really impressed with Georgia’s linebacking corps – imagine what he’d think if he’d remembered to include Davin Bellamy in his analysis.
  • In case you missed it, Ohio State made sure that Urban Meyer will be paid more than Jim Harbaugh (but not as much as Nick Saban).  Though as we all know, things could change down the road.

The last, best “run the damned ball, Bobo!” story ever

Evidently this is going to make ESPN’s “Draft Academy” show, which starts tonight.

One somewhat funny scene in the show is when ESPN’s cameras follow Gurley and some friends to a sports bar in Florida to watch the Super Bowl. Of course, the game is won by the New England Patriots when the Seattle Seahawks throw an interception on the 1-yard line and failed to hand the ball to Marshawn Lynch.

Gurley jumps up from the table incredulous that they didn’t give the ball to arguably the NFL’s best back. “Run the ball!” he yells.

The Bulldogs lost in similar fashion early in the 2014 season when they did run the ball with Gurley on first-and-goal at South Carolina’s 4 trailing late in the game. But realizing ESPN’s were trained closely on him, Gurley held back.

“I’m just going to be quiet on this one,” he said with a grin.

“I’m just going to be quiet on this one”?  What kind of Dawg fan are you anyway, Todd?

Lorenzo Carter is today’s Dawg porn.

He beasted on G-Day.  And he’s not done yet.

Carter isn’t satisfied.

“There’s so much more I can do,” the sophomore said. “Once I grow as a player, it’s crazy imagining what I can do.”

Call me crazy, then.

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.

“Because we always knew.”

If the fix is in on who’s starting at quarterback, the coaches have done as good a job fooling the players as they have us.
