Will Muschamp Continues to Go Out of His Way to Make an Ass of Himself


Not only did he guarantee a Cocktail Party victory, but he made fun of the idea of marrying a Georgia fan. For the record, Will Muschamp is a University of Georgia graduate whose wife is from Thomaston and whose brother coaches in Atlanta. At the time of their wedding, Coach Muschamp's wife married a Georgia fan; apparently, he thinks Mrs. Muschamp chose her mate poorly. I would tend to agree. I'll tell you what, Will. If we're that bad, you turncoat son of a bitch, how 'bout you don't come up here and recruit, either? Just stay out of the state altogether; I'll be happy to keep the game in Jacksonville just to keep you on your side of the state line. Coach Chump is rapidly working his way up into Pat Dye territory for me. And don't even get me started on people who get married during football season. . . . Go 'Dawgs!

Oh, Great . . . Another Similarity Between Will Muschamp and Erk Russell!


Not something of which I needed reminding this early on a Monday morning. Go 'Dawgs!

Is Tennessee Close to Hiring David Cutcliffe?


It's looking that way, and, if it turns out to be the case, it's a good hire. David Cutcliffe has been a successful SEC head coach (one bad season at Ole Miss that got him undeservedly canned notwithstanding), he has been relatively effective at Duke (albeit not at Spurrier-scary levels), and, unlike Lane Kiffin, he regards Knoxville as an ultimate destination rather than a way station. Coach Cutcliffe isn't a splashy pick, but his history with the Vols suggests that he was to Phillip Fulmer as Ralph Friedgen was to George O'Leary or Erskine Russell was to Vince Dooley. The Fridge went on to have some stellar seasons at Maryland (though not lately) and Erk had a Hall of Fame-worthy career in Statesboro from start to finish. If Tennessee is looking to strike fear into the hearts of rival fans, David Cutcliffe isn't the way to go, but, frankly, every guy they might have gotten who would have frightened me (Will Muschamp, Charlie Strong, Tommy Tuberville) is off the table, so they should opt for restoring their program to respectability. David Cutcliffe does that. Go 'Dawgs!

Will Muschamp Is Not Knoxville-Bound


As I said would be the case, the fear that Will Muschamp was headed for Tennessee was ill-founded. Go 'Dawgs!

Bad News For 'Bama Fans: Mark Ingram Wins Heisman Trophy


Many Crimson Tide fans are celebrating tonight as Mark Ingram has brought home the school's first Heisman Trophy. Those same fans now are much more likely to be crying a week after New Year's Day, as Ingram now is at the center of a whirlwind media blitz that will include interviews, David Letterman top ten lists . . . and becoming motivational fodder for Will Muschamp's defense ("He took Colt's Heisman Trophy! Are you going to stand for that?!?! Boom!"). What Ingram won't be doing is that whole, you know, getting ready to play a football game thing. I mean, he's the Heisman Trophy winner; he just has to show up and he'll be great in the bowl game . . . right? My condolences go out to Alabama. Tonight, they won the battle, but it may cost them the war. Go 'Dawgs!

Congrats to Texas on the Muschamp Hire


The Longhorns pulled the trigger, and wisely so, to keep America's top assistant coach in Austin for the long hall. Peter Bean got me to write a biographical profile of Will Muschamp for the 2008 edition of The Eyes of Texas, so, having examined the background of the U.T. head-coach-in-waiting just a few months ago, I can tell you right now that this was the best coaching hire of the 2008-'09 coach-swapping season at any level, collegiate or professional, no ifs, ands, or buts, period, paragraph, end of report, no more calls, case closed, next case, without question, indubitably. Personally, I'm torn. I had hoped Coach Muschamp would end up at Clemson. Since the rivalry between the Bulldogs and the Tigers is set to be revived in 2013 and 2014, I wanted Will Muschamp to be Fort Hill-bound, in the hope of breathing new life into the storied series. (We're starting to reach Georgia-Auburn levels of cross-pollination here: Zippy Morocco went to Georgia, Chris Morocco went to Clemson; Jeff Harper went to Georgia, Cullen Harper went to Clemson; Anthony King---no relation, by the way---went to Clemson, Tavarres King went to Georgia; Mark Richt coaches at Georgia, Jon Richt is at Clemson. All we needed was a feisty Georgia alum as the Clemson head coach and the fires would have been stoked, hopefully leading to more regular renewals of an underappreciated rivalry.) On the other hand, I'm darned glad to know Will Muschamp won't be returning to the S.E.C. There are too many top-shelf head coaches in the league as it is. Kudos to DeLoss Dodds for signing the right man to a long-term deal. As long as Will Muschamp has an Austin mailing address, Texas will be my second-favorite team. Go 'Dawgs! Go 'Horns! Boom, Norman Bates and others with suspiciously close relationships with their mothers! That's what I'm talking about!
