If you're like me, you're just getting settled back into your routine after the long weekend, so it's understandable if you're still a little bit behind. Here's what you need to know to be able to participate in the water cooler conversation on Wednesday morning:
- This may go down as one of the craziest ideas in Dawg Sports history, but I have offered to let you, the reader, pick the next poll question. Leave a comment below offering your suggestion for a poll question and (provided there are a sufficient number of suitable responses) I will allow the voters to choose which question will become the new poll question and I will provide some (almost entirely intangible) recognition to the author of the winning question. Your ideas go in the comments below.
- Swamp Ball highlights a piece on former Gator great Kerwin Bell, quoting a passage that describes the Florida Q.B.'s claim to fame in terms of statistics (7,585 career passing yards) and won-lost records (back-to-back 9-1-1 seasons in 1984 and 1985). I tend to see it a bit differently . . . I think Kerwin Bell's claim to fame is that he embodied the horrible follicular fashions of the mid-1980s, in terms of both his haircut and his moustache.
Galen Hall and Kerwin Bell: the real inspirations behind "Mustache Wednesday."
- My recent Weblogging Disclosure Statement is starting to generate some reaction in the blogosphere. Burnt Orange Nation supported the idea and Paragon SC also agreed, while Heismanpundit provided a measured retort.
- Speaking of Paragon SC, he has joined the weblogging ranks and you should check out his site, Cardinal and Gold, where, among other things, he discusses the significance of Southern California's absence from the N.C.A.A. baseball tournament field.
I didn't really need a picture right here, but, since I'm segueing from a U.S.C. blogger to a U.C.L.A. blogger, I needed something to bridge the gap, lest West Coast warfare erupt anew right here at Dawg Sports.
- Bruins Nation raised the question, which I attempted to answer, and now U-Dub Dish has offered his two cents' worth, as well.
- How will Georgia's conference and in-state rivals fare this season? The Realist has his take on Alabama, Sunday Morning Quarterback's impressive series of team-by-team previews now includes Tennessee, and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's dimmest bulb, the insufferable Mark Bradley, has purveyed his pervasive ignorance about many football-related subjects, including Bradley's all-time favorite team, Georgia Tech, thereby eliciting responses from Michael and from Orson.
