What's going on in the world, you ask? Here are a few hot spots to check out over your morning cup of coffee. . . .
- Dave and I have agreed that the solution to the radical realignment problem in the Midwestern Conference is to hose Illinois, while A Sea of Blue and I have exchanged interview questions, with his answers appearing at Dawg Sports and my answers being published at his place.
- The Bulldog Road Tour travels to the Augusta Bulldog Club this evening at 6:00 p.m., as Mark Richt, Suzanne Yoculan, and Dennis Felton are scheduled to appear at the St. Mary's on the Hill Gymnasium. I don't know if it's too late to get into the event, but, if you're interested, call Joel Simmons at (706) 631-9229.
- Over at Burnt Orange Nation, you will find a report that Texas is No. 1 and Georgia is No. 10, as well as a discussion of whether the Red River Rivalry should remain in the Cotton Bowl.
Hey, at least y'all never had to play the game at a neutral site that was named for the other team!
- Those of you who remember the awkwardness of the Georgia university system's quarter/semester switchover may find interesting The 614's piece on how Ohio State's quarter system is affecting its players' N.F.L. prospects.
- As always, all the Red and Black news that's fit to print is available at the Dawg Bone, which is the source for current information in Bulldog Nation.
- Paul Westerdawg has cut through the hype and given us the low-down on Urban Meyer's spread option offense.
How did Ron Zook's picture manage to make it into two postings in a 24-hour period?
- The Realist has offered some excellent perspective on the recent run of success by the 16th-ranked Diamond Dogs.
- To the best of my knowledge, Nobel Prizes are only awarded for junk like chemistry and economics, but, if they ever get around to handing out a Nobel Prize for intercollegiate athletics weblogging, the first one (obviously) will go to MGoBlog, but I nominate Sunday Morning Quarterback for the second one. How serious is S.M.Q. about providing preseason assessments of every team in college football? The dude has given us more information on Louisiana-Lafayette than the Ragin' Cajuns' S.I.D. knows. Seriously.
- Somebody keyed Doug's car. That's just not right.
