Tuesday morning buffet

Sample exotic dishes from around the world of college football… just kidding.

  • Georgia Southern takes tailgating to the next level. (h/t)
  • When Virginia faced Louisville last season, Greyson Lambert got some tips about Todd Grantham from former Georgia quarterback Parker Welch.
  • I’ve got to admit, if Georgia Tech won the ACC this season and this happened, I’d enjoy it.
  • Mark Richt made a recruit berry, berry happy the other day.
  • Why is Kentucky opposed to satellite camps?
  • And why is Alabama’s quarterback situation any more intriguing than Georgia’s?
  • Richt and Schottenheimer did a good job of tag teaming Georgia’s first commit for the class of 2017, Bailey Hockman.

The genius and “That Coach”

Proving there’s a first time for everything, here’s a Paul Johnson story I actually enjoyed.

What Southern feared most was a repeat of the man referred to throughout Statesboro as “That Coach,” Brian VanGorder. The current Notre Dame defensive coordinator was GS’ head coach in 2006. He dumped tradition — the triple-option, the buses, etc. — in favor of appealing to top recruits.

The move infuriated Johnson, who wanted his Navy program to schedule Southern so he “could beat ‘That Coach’s’ ass,” as the story goes.

“Oh yeah, it really sounded sexy when someone came in and said they were going to throw the ball all over the field, until they didn’t win any playoff games and started losing five, six times a season,” Johnson said. “Then it wasn’t so much fun.”

If you’re gonna break something that wasn’t broken in the first place, you’d damn sure better fix it.

There should be blood.

This Georgia Southern video has the coaching staff headbutting Erk Russell’s statue a little too reverently, methinks.

Wednesday morning buffet

Grab a plate and get to it.

  • I think this is what they mean by irony:  “The healthiest defensive back for Georgia right now is sophomore safety Josh Harvey-Clemons, who is suspended for the opener after admitting to police this spring that he had been smoking marijuana.”  Weed makes you strong!
  • Chad Morris promises Georgia 100% of Clemson’s playbook.
  • I wonder if anybody ever talks to Paul Johnson now the way Erk talked to Paul Johnson.
  • You’ve been warned:  Chris Fowler promises that ESPN will cover the Manziel story “just like we had to cover the investigation into Cam Newton at Auburn.”  Yech.
  • Al.com apologizes for being sexist in a football story it ran.  You wonder how many readers even noticed in the first place.
  • Maybe Al.com should have checked with Siri first.
  • Christian Robinson turned down a NFL camp invite to stay in Athens as a GA.
  • Here’s something else the Georgia offense was good at last season.
