Wednesday Morning Quick Hits

New, 2 comments

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."

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.

Consider yourself culturally conversant in events of note in the intercollegiate athletics blogosphere.  You may now go impress your friends and neighbors with the depth and breadth of your knowledge.  

Go 'Dawgs!
