Thursday Midmorning Quick Hits

You've probably already had your morning cup of coffee, but, even so, here are a few postings of note floating around the college football blogosphere:  

  • I'm still too bitter about Georgia's Sugar Bowl loss to offer an unvarnished assessment of West Virginia's prospects for the upcoming season . . . but, fortunately, Sunday Morning Quarterback has taken up the challenge.  His perfectly rational conclusion is that the Mountaineers, while likely to be good, should not be considered serious contenders for the national title.  (Don't get me wrong; if the 'Dawgs don't win the 2006 national championship, I hope West Virginia does, because it will validate last season's bowl loss the way Nebraska's No. 1 finishes in 1970 and 1971 took some of the sting out of the Red and Black's loss to the Cornhuskers in the '69 Sun Bowl.  Like S.M.Q., though, I just don't see it happening.)  
  • The M Zone, ever mindful of the welfare of the game, dutifully performs an intervention with the Florida Gators by explaining that their helmets look like a 25-year-old soft drink ad.  Gotta keep those Sunkist vibrations happening, baby.  

We interrupt this posting to bring you a gratuitous Kristin Davis photo.  We now return you to your regularly-scheduled weblog, which is already in progress.

Now you're all caught up and ready to resume your workday.  Don't forget . . . the N.C.A.A. Women's Gymnastics Championships start today!  I know; I'm going to have trouble staying focused on other things, too.  

Go 'Dawgs!
