Rennie Curran to Tennessee Titans; First 'Dawg Taken in Draft

Although UGAVike beat me to the punch, it bears repeating: Rennie Curran has become the first Bulldog taken in the 2010 NFL draft. Man, that took a while, didn't it? Good luck to Rennie. Go 'Dawgs!

Peter Bean Covers the NFL Combine

+

I don't like the NFL combine. Two words: Jeff George. I believe Tim Tebow to be an upstanding young man, but the constant coverage of his every move and the incessant adulation make me want to puke. I see the benefits of Twitter, but the danger of immediacy is being able to disseminate an error with dangerous swiftness. Glibness and quickness can add up to volatility, even in the absence of the internet's liberating anonymity. Peter Bean learned an inadvertent yet valuable lesson in what happens when the combine, Tebowmania, and Twitter intersect. The short version is that the combination of three bad (or at least dubious) things adds up to an even worse thing. Go 'Dawgs!

92% of Americans and 78% of Georgians Are Wrong About the BCS

15

In an incredibly scientific poll conducted two days after the Super Bowl for the first time in modern memory even arguably paired the NFL’s two best teams, 92 per cent of Americans participating in the internet balloting indicated that the National Football League does a better job of producing a deserving champion than the Bowl Championship Series. Georgians gave the BCS its second-highest approval rating (behind only the denizens of the state to our immediate left, currently the home of the BCS championship trophy) with 22 per cent. For the record, while I did not vote in the poll, I am in that 22 per cent, a figure which doubtless would have been considerably higher the day after the New York Giants upset the New England Patriots. It bears pointing out, by the way, that Plessy v. Ferguson was an 8-1 decision and the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution passed 416-0 in the House and 88-2 in the Senate. As P.J. O’Rourke has pointed out, it’s not the divisive issues on which folks are split down the middle that pose the biggest threats; it’s the issues about which there is eerie unanimity that run the greatest risk of disastrously bad consequences, such as Jim Crow, the Vietnam War, and a Division I-A college football playoff. Go ‘Dawgs!

Florida Defensive Coordinator Bolts One Day After Signing Day

30

One month into his tenure as the Gators' defensive coordinator, George Edwards is leaving Gainesville to return to the NFL ranks. Coach Edwards leaves Florida one day after the team hauled in the country's top-ranked recruiting class on national signing day. Coach Edwards is heading to Buffalo, where he will serve as defensive coordinator under Chan Gailey. Coach Gailey was hired as the Bills' head coach on January 20, after the NFL franchise's season was over and two weeks before high school seniors were allowed to sign their national letters of intent. Given the stellar record of trustworthiness compiled by Urban Meyer, I feel certain this timing was purely coincidental and the Florida coaching staff in no way kept such valuable information as the impending departure of their defensive coordinator from the prospects the Gators were pursuing. Go 'Dawgs!
