- Anybody wanna bet that Carl Lawson is back in time for Auburn’s game with Georgia?

Regardless of how you feel about Ohio State, you have to admit Braxton Miller put one helluva spin move on a couple of Virginia Tech defenders last night.
You can go pick up your jock now, son.
Peeps, I gotta tell you – Rashad Roundtree’s got nothing on Mark Walton when it comes to Bulldog style.
Whoa, baby. And he’s not even a commitment at this point. Although, if for no other reason than you’d hate to see those threads go to waste, I hope he changes his mind.
There is just something epic about this play… no, not just UCF pulling out a win on a last minute Hail Mary, but one of ECU’s defensive backs starting to unbuckle his head gear before the catch is made.
At least he made it easier to read his reaction after the catch.
Lookin’ good, brah.
Every time I see a picture from the Georgia-Florida game, I keep forgetting to post something about how terrific the red and blue jerseys looked together out there.
DONN RODENROTH — For The Telegraph
I know the trend is to trot out trendy new jerseys every other week, but, damn, there’s something to be said for the classic look. Hope they make that an annual ritual, if for no other reason than so we’ll never have to see anything like 2009’s fake juice again.
I usually don’t spend time posting about Georgia’s verbal commitments, because… well, because they’re verbal commitments. But there’s always an exception to the rule, and today’s is Augusta safety Rashad Roundtree, who was rocking these pants today when he announced his intent to play in Athens.
Here’s a close up.
I think I want some of those.
