Live-blogging Rich Brooks

5:35 p.m. ET Rich Brooks notes that he's going last. "That's where we'll be picked every year anyway." Until you prove differently, yeah.

5:36 p.m. ET First Mike Hartline / Andre Woodson comparison -- noting that Woodson improved a lot between his sophomore and junior year. No pressure, Mike.

5:40 p.m. ET "We've changed some history at Kentucky, but we have to change some more."

5:41 p.m. ET Brooks didn't commit the heinous crime. "How could I not vote for Tim Tebow? We couldn't stop him the last two years. I voted the other guy second. ... Good luck in your search." The "other guy" I presume to be Jevan Snead. Either that, or Brooks got confused again and put Shane Matthews at No. 2.

5:45 p.m. ET Hartline: "He didn't make a lot of negative plays. But he didn't take as many positive plays as he needed to."

5:47 p.m. ET Randall Cobb will have a Wildcat package to run as QB. Under the vogue lingo, wouldn't that be a WildWildcat package?

5:50 p.m. ET "Now, we need to climb the ladder. This isn't good enough. ... We need to compete for the SEC Championship." But how?

5:53 p.m. ET Cobb as QB got the offense to perk up in some games last year, including Norfolk State(!). "He has exciting playmaking ability." Which is why he won't be the starting QB. This makes complete sense. If today is opposite day.

5:55 p.m. ET Notes first two SEC games are against Florida and Alabama. "But at least we have them at home." Any shelter in a storm, I suppose.

5:56 p.m. ET "I Twitter quite a bit lately."  File that under "Things you never thought you'd hear." Doesn't think he has as many people as Calipari "answering the Twitter, or listening to the Twitter, or whatever you do with a Twitter." This is someone who tweets "quite a bit"? His kids also like it. "They can keep track of where I am." Really, if you can't write that joke yourself, you don't deserve to have it written for you.
