Today, in be careful what you wish for

Found this on a message board and it’s too good not to share (although I really, really hope it’s not just sarcasm).

I hope Clemson only kicks field goals in the opener, too.

Making a good first impression

Why don’t we check in and see how social media is taking in Georgia’s boffo new NIL legislation.  I’m sure there are a lot of favorable hot takes…

Yeah, that’s going well.  Naturally, there are tons of Georgia fans out there trying to correct the record, but even they’re having to concede the law is stupidly drafted — and for no good reason, since every major school in the state has already walked away from the pooling arrangement.

And those are just the first day hot takes.  Imagine what the sales job will be like for Georgia coaches after Nick Saban sadly explains the facts of life to recruits trying to compare Alabama’s NIL law with Georgia’s.  Somehow, I don’t think It’s not fair for just the skill players to take all the money, otherwise why is somebody going to block for you? is gonna make everything better.

If they ever create an annual award for horseshit purity in the name of Georgia football (call it the Georgia Way Award, natch), I know who I’ll nominate for the first recipient.

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.

No detail is too small for Kirbs.

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