The cool kids are going to UCF.

If you’re Central Florida, it’s not cringy enough to claim a faux natty.  Nah, it’s on to new worlds to conquer.

Are we supposed to tweet at them during games?  And if that’s not cringy enough for you, check out the “how do you do, fellow kids” vibe of Gus explaining this.

Ugh.  That’s awkward enough for somebody to make ’em give back their national championship rings.

Just like me

E.J. Liddell plays basketball for Ohio State, which lost its March Madness opener.  The social media reaction he received as a result was, at the least, none too friendly.

I only mention this because of a comment at the blog a couple of days ago to the effect that paying players offends some who wish to maintain the belief they’re like the players because they’ve gone to the same school.

Maybe I’m missing something, but I don’t think that’s how it works these days.

“I gotta go.”

What did your head coach do during the offseason?

I hope somebody’s explained the First Rule of Holes to Hutson Mason.

I don’t think “new low” means what ol’ Hutson thinks it means.

Molder of young men

I really don’t know what goes through some people’s brains sometimes.

Dude’s been fired, to no one’s surprise.

Can someone call me an Uber?

In a tweet she titled, “I’m so sorry,” Setas posted a message backtracking on her earlier statement.

“The tweet I posted earlier this evening was uncalled for and hurtful. I made a huge mistake and I apologize,” Setas tweeted. “In a moment of frustration, I let my anger get the best of me and acted before thinking. I sincerely regret my choice of reckless words. In no way did I intend to undermine the seriousness of the global pandemic and my heart goes out to those it has affected. The health and safety of others is first and foremost and I pray that we all can find peace soon. I am ashamed and embarrassed. I hope you can forgive me.”

Shockingly, she is no longer on Twitter.

I have to admit I’d pay good money to watch Clay Travis ask Nick Saban about her tweet.

Heh.  My only question is whether Kirby scours Twitter himself or has a staffer do it for him.

It’s cute that they care.

The question was about whether transfers should be able to play immediately at their new school, a subject where Smart is aware that coaches are often on the minority side of public opinion.

“Do you want an honest answer on that?” Smart said. “I can give you the stock answer, which is indifferent. But as every coach in the SEC wouldn’t admit, it’s based on who they can get with how they want that rule.”

If it can benefit your team, in other words, you want transfers to be able to play right away. If it can benefit your opponent, you don’t want it. Got it.

“It’s a selfish world out there and every guy is trying to do what gives his team the best chance to win,” Smart said.

Chaser.

Barners, man.
