Sprints Isn't Sure Tim Tebow Was Deonte Thompson's Problem // 03.23.10

No, what do you mean by 'a real quarterback'?
Deonte Thompson is glad that Florida has "a real quarterback," as opposed to that guy that won two national titles, three division championships and the Heisman Trophy.

"Lot of things didn't go the way as planned," Thompson said. "Things are going to get better here in the future." ...

"You never know with Tim," Thompson said. "You can bolt, you think he's running but he'll come up and pass it to you. You just have to be ready at all times. With Brantley, everything's with rhythm, time. You know what I mean, a real quarterback."

You know, one that throws passes that Deonte Thompson catches. That would probably be "a real quarterback." Not that Deonte Thompson has any responsibility for whether he catches the ball. No.

Alligator Army:

Those taking a more objective view would note that Thompson was the third read, so he wouldn't get thrown to, despite the presence of his right hand in the air and spinning around.

He's actually coached basketball in March!
North Texas' Johnny Jones is scheduled to interview for the Auburn job.

Play Ball!

Yes, but you see, you don't have any chance of defeating them now
Auburn TE Bailey Woods heads to Georgia State to finish his college football career, where he will face an old rival.

"It's always going to be exciting to play great competition, but the opportunity to play Alabama, a team I've been deep rivals with the last three years, you can't beat that."

More like, at Georgia State, you can't be them.

Byrne'd
As some had suggested yesterday, Greg Byrne is set to become the athletics director at ... Arizona?!?

Keenum said he feels as if there is momentum within State’s program and that he’ll have a marketable job for which to hire.

"I do truly want somebody to bring a lot of energy, who is highly motivated, who’s a visionary, and can pick up on the momentum that we’ve got going," Keenum said.

Yes, who wouldn't want to move to lovely Starkville and face the SEC West every year?
