Sprints Is Leading Bowlnanza and Keeping Bama's Game Plan // 12.22.09

Team Speed Kills Now Bowlnanza. Tonight at 8 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. CT. We start at a special time so we can have two hours to gather intelligence on your team's bowl opponent. Unless you're a Florida, Ole Miss or Arkansas fan. (There's a paucity of East Carolina blogs out there. I know; I was also surprised.) We'll have Peter Bean from Burnt Orange Nation to discuss the CBCSNCG (Alabama-Texas); FigureFour from Shakin the Southland to talk Music City Bowl (Kentucky-Clemson); Coach Beergut from I Am The 12th Man to consider the Weedeater Independence Bowl (Georgia-Texas A&M); Furrer4Heisman from Gobbler Country talking the Game Formerly Known as the Peach Bowl (Tennessee-Virginia Tech); Rodger from Sippin' On Purple to discuss the Outback Bowl (Auburn-Northwestern); Chris from Black Shoe Diaries to weigh the Capital One Bowl (LSU-Penn State); and Kevin from The UConn Blog to debate the Bowl (South Carolina-Connecticut).

You can take part at the show page (join in the debate through the message board there) or here on the site through the player below, which will be posted again shortly before the program.


If that were a concern, the Coachbot would have eliminated them by now
Nick Saban answers the inevitable question about former assistants Will Muschamp and Major Applewhite, and I like the response.

Are you going to trick yourself or trick them? We do what we do and always do self-scout and know what our tendencies are and what the other team thinks about us and what we need to do to balance that.

Why outthink yourself after getting to the national championship game with your current system?

Tide QB might cross the pond
But Greg McElroy will only apply for the Rhodes Scholarship after it won't keep him from a year of football.

Capitalist bourgeois pigs
Texas players will take their stipend and travel to the game separately, thank you.


Brandon James out
And that would be forever. The return specialist will miss his final potential game in a Gators uniform because of a stress fracture.

Florida RB not going anywhere
Reports of Chris Rainey's NFL debut were premature. He says he'll remain in Gainesville for "at least another year."

That's what the Mayor sees when he compares Arkansas' games against Georgia and Texas A&M.

Someone finally paid attention to him
It surprised me as I looked through the numbers for my Heisman post how little attention of any kind had gone to Von Miller of Texas A&M. Georgia has noticed.

He's telling his landlord to 'hold the rope'
Dennis Franchione is a candidate at UNLV.

Hiccups for Auburn
Perhaps not the best term. In any case, a pair of Tigeagles were arrested for DUI this month. Stay thirsty, my friends. Otherwise, you might be suspended for the bowl game.

Kentucky reaches milestone in rather odd sport
The 'Cats are the first team to win 2,000 games of this "basketball" they play.

Dominique Archie lost to surgery
The season-ending procedure severely hurts South Carolina's NCAA tournament hopes.

Another competitive year in baseball
If the experts are correct, that is. LSU is ranked No. 2 in Collegiate Baseball's preseason poll, with six other teams in the Top 40 (No. 9 Florida, No. 22 Ole Miss, No. 23 Arkansas, No. 28 South Carolina, No. 31 Georgia and No. 32 Vanderbilt). Should be fun.
