Texas A&M and the SEC

CHRIS PUMMER: As they say, the grass is always greener. That’s how Texas A&M feels about trying to move from the Big 12 to the SEC. And maybe if the grass isn’t, the money just might be. Continue reading

LSU-Florida: What We Learned

KRYSTEN OLIPHANT: I have to say I was completely shocked by the fact that LSU even won that game, much less that they won it the way they did. And maybe Les Miles finally took back the play-calling duties from his clown of an offensive coordinator, Gary Crowton. After all, the Tigers’ offense did finally get moving to the tune of 385 total offensive yards — outgaining Florida by 42 yards — and they were in the game the whole time despite several stupid penalties and turnovers. The fake punt he pulled out at the end of the game wasn’t anything too surprising, considering it’s the same one he ran against South Carolina in 2007, and the last-ditch pass into the corner of the end zone was very reminescent of the win against Auburn that same year.

SHANNON MCCARTHY: If there’s one lesson to be taken after the Tigers stomped on the F in the Swamp, it’s that the Mad Hatter still has his lucky horseshoe firmly in place.

Well, that and maybe Florida should have kept those orange jerseys tucked away a bit longer.

Another thing this game made painfully clear is that their play in the season opener was not the anomaly for the Gators – that distinction instead goes to the Kentucky game. Aside from that one contest, Florida’s offense, especially in the first half, has been a mix between a complete mess and a complete bore. Continue reading

Rand Paul: What Now?

JESSICA BADER: I don’t think the Civil Rights Act flap will directly hurt Paul much in his quest to succeed Jim Bunning – Paul’s senatorial ambitions are more likely to be directly hurt by other comments he has made. That being said, I could easily see the Civil Rights Act controversy hurting the GOP outside of Kentucky.

DAN SZYMBORSKI; Rand Paul getting the nomination is definitely one of the weirder things in recent years, no doubt reinforcing the notion that we are going to be witnessing one of the strangest election cycles in memory. Continue reading

John Calipari: Embrace the Hate OR Wait for the Other Shoe

STEPHON JOHNSON: The sleaziest coach in college basketball outside of Jerry Tarkanian joins one of the most “respected” college basketball programs. They both deserve each other.

LUCAS O’NEILL: One wonders if the move was in Calipari’s best interest. Financially there’s no question. But it’s another reminder to potential recruits that the guy they think will take them to the next level might not be around to see it through. Continue reading

Drinking and Writing: Hemingway Had It Right/Just Say No

I got your summary right here.

TED BERG: Ever heard of Geoff Chaucer? He’s the father of English literature, and when he was named poet laureate*, he requested his stipend be a gallon of brandy a day.

And since…
