The Big Ten BS, it burns.

How ’bout this as a dramatic lede?

No league gets its people on the same page quite like the Big Ten.

Only somebody forgot to tell Ohio State AD Gene Smith to keep his honesty to himself.

“Things are so different. I’ve moved away from the amateurism,” Smith said. “I never call our athletes amateurs anymore.”

So much for “cohesion is a fundamental requirement”.

Not that it matters.  Check out the latest spin on The Year of Readiness:

The Big Ten floated the “year of readiness” plan mostly as a ploy to get people focused on discussing more academic and student-welfare issues, or what Glass called “less controversial and more doable” reforms.

The thing is, cohesive or not, why should anybody take what’s coming out of their mouths at face value?

It was a good day.

And, lo, there was much rejoicing.

I’m not going to revisit the many low points of Wagers’ career here.  It’s clear that he got a bug up his butt over the Celebration and never got over it.  But this was the lowest point of all, and, as far as I’m concerned, should have resulted in some serious repercussions from the SEC office.

That didn’t happen, but at least he’s no longer around.  Good riddance, don’t let the door hit you on the ass on the way out, etc.

Eve of destruction

Ray Watts is about ready to bring the sham to an end.

If Watts still refuses to reinstate football, despite the money raised by Filler, other boosters, the city of Birmingham and the UAB Undergraduate Student Government Association, Williams said, “I think this would cement his legacy in a very destructive way. His tenure at UAB will be marked by his destructive behavior.”

Somebody really ought to write a book about the end of UAB football.  It would make a helluva read.

If you haven’t got your health, then you haven’t got anything.

Well, this is good news.

“I think every guy who’s injured or had an injury (will be cleared by June),” Richt said, noting former Dodge County standout Leonard Floyd among the group. “I can’t think of one guy that has a limitation.”

If that holds, then the Bulldogs will be a seriously healthy collection when they gather in a few months for preseason camp.

No injuries, no suspensions, no Jimmy Williamson news?  Weird times, man. Does anyone else get the feeling something awful’s about to happen?

UPDATE:  More good news.

Mark Richt is gaining control over every damned thing lately, it seems.
