Fire up the chafing dishes!
- I can’t help but wonder after catching Lou Holtz’ comments about immigrants if he ever recruited soccer-style kickers who were born outside of America.
- As far as Missouri’s AD leaving for Baylor goes, it’s not like he had an easy ride where he was.
- Supposedly, Georgia’s kicking competition “isn’t deemed as concerning based on what’s transpired since the spring.”
- The Ivy League will experiment with kickoffs from the 40-yard line this season.
- Bruce Feldman lists his top ten offensive lines. Georgia’s isn’t one of them.
- My favorite bit from the Big 12 swimsuit competition so far (yeah, it’s early): “No wonder Houston board of regents chairman conducted a 1 a.m. interview Wednesday with the Houston Chronicle while on vacation in Monte Carlo.”
- Good piece from Ian Boyd on what coaches look for in picking linebackers.
I don’t think it’s any big surprise that I think Mike Slive was an overrated conference commissioner. And that’s even before I learned this:
Finebaum morphed from attack-dog columnist to attack-dog radio host, but he won his current platform by morphing again into a ringmaster of sorts who balances informative interviews with wacky callers. Former SEC commissioner Mike Slive had to go to bat for Finebaum with various school presidents to get them to sign off on the hire. [Emphasis added.]
For the love of all that’s holy, why, man, why? Unless PAWWWLLL had photos of Slive in a compromising position, I can’t begin to think of a decent excuse. And, to be honest with you, I’m not sure even blackmail would be enough to justify advocating for Finebaum like that.
… may I suggest you spend it here? Seniors who are on the Lou Groza Award watch list and available don’t grow on trees.
