In case you missed it, here’s the latest news around the ‘net:
- At this point, I have no choice but to conclude that the universe is just messing with the Georgia Bulldogs. How else do you explain the fact that Hines Ward, probably the least likely Bulldog of the last two decades to have a run-in with the law, was ordered out of a car at gunpoint and handcuffed by police? Don’t worry, though; it was all a big misunderstanding. No, seriously, it was.
- The Boston College Eagles will play the Miami Hurricanes in South Florida on the Friday after Thanksgiving. On the one hand, I’m looking forward to watching the game; on the other hand, I’m dreading the inevitable recurring paeans to Doug Flutie. Here’s a news flash for Bill Simmons and all the self-righteous New Englanders like him: the rest of us love sports just as much as you do, and "Hail Flutie" wasn’t even the most memorable college football moment of the 1984 season. Get over yourselves.
- Has the stability provided by Mark Richt’s decade of service in Athens aided the Bulldogs in the development of NFL-caliber players? Yes, it has.
- Does the presence of Aaron Murray in the Georgia lineup heighten the likelihood that the Red and Black will win ten games in 2011? Yes, it does.
That ought to get you up to speed on your Thursday evening.
