Mark Richt is a liberal plot.

I appreciate the thoughtful responses Sunday’s post about Charlottesville generated, even from those of you who disagreed with me.  That being said, I have to tell you that none of you came close to touching the sheer, concise brilliance of a comment my post spawned at the HOTD message board.

In fact, I’m going on record to say that in more than ten years of blogging, it’s the greatest comment about a GTP post I’ve ever read.

Still has his head up CMR’s ass so liberal was a given

If you’re a Georgia fan, in twelve words, that has it all, don’t it?

And some of you thought my post was political.

It’s that time of year again.

I just got the email about setting up the 2017 Fabris pick ’em pool.  Who’s in?


UPDATE:  I shotgunned invites to everyone who’s participated before, but if you’re a newbie who’d like to join in for 2017, click here.

Out and about again

I am heading out of town this morning and won’t be back until Sunday afternoon, so you can expect posting will be as sporadic as it usually is under those circumstances.

Keep it cool in the meantime, folks.

“It’s a certain cachet or aura. It’s the way a program is perceived by the public.”

Man, Stewart Mandel is still taking a victory lap in Montana.

But one particular question I answered in August 2007 took on a life of its own. A reader asked me to rank the nation’s power-conference schools by “prestige and place in the national scene.” For reasons I can’t recall, I opted to invoke a Medieval feudal system in dividing the 66 BCS programs at the time into Kings, Knights, Barons and Peasants.

Thus, my Program Pecking Order was born.

People took the thing pretty seriously. One Georgia blog actually enlisted a Dawgs fan to go around to sports bars in Montana testing my premise that the “G” helmet is not universally recognizable enough to merit a spot in the top group. (An “A” for effort, though it turned out I was right.)

I suppose I should be flattered.

Hit me with your best shot.

I honestly don’t know what took me so long, but I’ve added an obvious entry to the Lexicon this morning.

A brief travel note

I’m heading out this morning for The Masters, where bathroom access is easy and Internet access isn’t, so behave, you scamps, while I’m away.
