Y'all Play Nice: The SEC Staple - Thanksgiving Edition


Doc Harper and Russ Mitchell, College Football News' lead SEC columnist, break down the SEC games you need to watch, the SEC questions you want answered, and of course, the SEC Power Rankings.

The SEC according to Spurrier


Steve Spurrier discusses how he's been an agent of change in the SEC both as a player and as a coach. It's good stuff.

WSJ: "SEC Coaches Defend Oversigning"


Jordan Montgomery's coach, about South Carolina coaches pulling Montgomery's offer the day before National Signing Day: "I told them this was foul. I didn't have a clue until 18 hours before signing day, and if they say anything else, they're lying."

Vote for Coach Spurrier as Mid-Season Coach of the Year


The HBC is currently in the lead with 65%, but he still needs your help! (H/T: South Carolina Gamecocks on facebook)

Mississippi State Considered Hiring Steve Spurrier in 1985


Doing a bit of research today I stumbled across this newspaper story from 1985. The bulldogs eventually went with the not-so-legendary Rockey Felker. But just let the possibility of Ole Ball Coach in Starkville during the peak of his powers just roll around your imagination for a bit.

Steve Spurrier Scheduled to appear on Dan Patrick Show


Recently I've taken to listening to the Dan Patrick Show from 9:00 - 12:00 while I'm at work. Personally, I think he's one of the best interviewers in the business. Anyways, Steve Spurrier is scheduled to make an appearance on Tuesday's (tomorrow's) show. Gamecock fans take note, as DP has a way of extracting quality radio from even the most reticent guests. I imagine he won't have to work too much with Spurrier. I suggest you follow the link above to see where you can catch the interview in your area. If not, I'll try to find and post a transcript of it tomorrow night. Go Cocks!

"Leave of Absence" : Urban Meyer :: "Long Weekend" : Me


Evidently, an Urban Meyer leave of absence is like a Steve Spurrier player suspension: neither involves anyone actually missing a game. Allen Iverson needs to give this guy a lecture on the importance of practice. Go 'Dawgs!

Is Tennessee Close to Hiring David Cutcliffe?


It's looking that way, and, if it turns out to be the case, it's a good hire. David Cutcliffe has been a successful SEC head coach (one bad season at Ole Miss that got him undeservedly canned notwithstanding), he has been relatively effective at Duke (albeit not at Spurrier-scary levels), and, unlike Lane Kiffin, he regards Knoxville as an ultimate destination rather than a way station. Coach Cutcliffe isn't a splashy pick, but his history with the Vols suggests that he was to Phillip Fulmer as Ralph Friedgen was to George O'Leary or Erskine Russell was to Vince Dooley. The Fridge went on to have some stellar seasons at Maryland (though not lately) and Erk had a Hall of Fame-worthy career in Statesboro from start to finish. If Tennessee is looking to strike fear into the hearts of rival fans, David Cutcliffe isn't the way to go, but, frankly, every guy they might have gotten who would have frightened me (Will Muschamp, Charlie Strong, Tommy Tuberville) is off the table, so they should opt for restoring their program to respectability. David Cutcliffe does that. Go 'Dawgs!

And the hits just keep on coming . . .


David Hale is right: there's no way to justify this decision. C&F was wrong last time about "Mark Richt's seemingly arbitrary stance"---there's nothing the least bit arbitrary about distinguishing between being arrested and not being arrested---but the precedent is established and reasonable: if you get arrested, you get suspended, period. Mark Richt is a good man and a good coach, but he's wrong on this one. This is the sort of non-punishment punishment that smacks of Steve Spurrier-style "discipline." We're better than that, or, at least, we should be. Go 'Dawgs!
