Give us your tired, your poor, your injured

So, do we give Gus the usual “Second Chance U” snark for this, or pat him on the back for showing up Corch?

And it’s always going to be a big deal.

Remember when Georgia had a home-and-home scheduled with Ohio State?  Remember when it got cancelled?  Ever wonder why?


You can scratch one possibility off the list: Ohio State.

Georgia and Ohio State had a memorandum of understanding to play in 2020 and 2021. But that was canceled by Ohio State, and McGarity said it will not be revived.

“Once Urban came in that was off the table,” McGarity said of Urban Meyer, hired as Ohio State coach in 2012.

It’s good there are no hard feelings, Corch.

Corch points the finger at the GPOOE’s detractors.

Seriously, you cannot make this shit up:

The problem with Tim, and this is the only problem, he creates so much conversation and distraction that I think that spooks some teams….

“He creates so much conversation”.  What were you, an innocent bystander?

I don’t think so.

Sunday morning buffet

Dig in, folks.

  • Bruce Feldman talks to Jim Donnan about the state of the SEC East.  No particularly earth-shattering disclosures, but I was amused to hear Donnan slip and use the word “we” once, when speaking about Georgia.
  • Michigan cooks the books to keep that home attendance streak going.
  • On the other hand, this is an impressive turnout.
  • Granted, this is about the NFL, but it’s still a great contrarian question to ask as college defenses continue gearing up to handle the spread.
  • And another question – is football going to start seeing smaller nose tackles?
  • Field Street Forum asks if Jacob Eason is the next Matthew Stafford.  Their answer may amuse you.
  • A senior football advisor with the Patriots when they drafted Aaron Hernandez had this to say about the organization’s misgivings about his character coming out of Florida:  “We knew he had some issues prior,” Reese said. “[Former Florida coach] Urban Meyer and Bill [Belichick] were very, very close, and I think Urban convinced Bill that, you know, that these things weren’t going to be an issue…”  Oopsie.

“It’s a case of monkey see, monkey do.”

When it comes to satellite camps, Urban Meyer isn’t going to let the other monkeys have all the fun.

Even if he thinks they shouldn’t.

“If our staff, who has much more information than I do because they’re in the trenches, if it helps us, we’ll do it,” Meyer said. “I think we might try one this year. You’ll certainly hear about it if we do.

“There’s a lot of conversation in our recruiting meetings every Wednesday about making a move and trying one. I hope the NCAA (puts an end to those). I think that should be outlawed. We shouldn’t be allowed to do that.

“I think you just recruit on campus, do a good job.”

Nothing stopping the Big Ten from putting the kibosh on that, Corch.  The SEC already does that on its own.

You get the feeling this is about to go all Wild West. How many Ohio State satellite camps in Alabama could it take to blow the whole thing up?

“You can’t treat people this way.”

We’re getting used to these stories – Urban Meyer does a little roster management with a four-star recruit with a knee injury and the kid’s high school coach vows he won’t forget the treatment.

But honestly, Corch may want to think a little more carefully about what comes out of his mouth the next time he pontificates on the subject of Ohio State’s roster numbers.

“How aware am I of the roster? About as well as you can be,” coach Urban Meyer said on National Signing Day in February. “There’s a couple guys that you’re just not sure can continue playing. You have to just to be aware.

“But there’s also the truth that you don’t know for the next couple weeks, couple months, with these injuries what happens. So you have to prepare.

“But you also can’t do the unthinkable and that’s be stuck with 87 scholarship players come June or July.”

On the other hand, I guess the high school coach can’t say he wasn’t warned.
