Monday Night Dawg Bites

I know, I know, I know . . . I ran it all down for you first thing this morning, but there's just too much going on for me to let it go at that. Here's what else you need to know to get yourself up to date:

  • Lately, I've been thinking about Southern flags. Evidently, A.C. and Ryan have, too.
  • While we're on the subject of Southern iconography, I reckon I should point out that Sunday Morning Quarterback is the latest weblogger to bid a less than fond farewell to Jefferson Pilot Sports. For all the good-natured ribbing that has been given to three guys named Dave broadcasting lackluster S.E.C. matchups using equipment borrowed from their high school audio-visual club, I'm going to miss Jefferson Pilot, which provided a refreshingly unvarnished view of sweltering Southern backwaters in stark contrast to the annoyingly intrusive sci-fi touches that mar Fox Sports telecasts. Besides, you can't want Southeastern Conference football broadcast by Lincoln Financial instead of Jefferson Pilot, can you?

The Louisiana Purchase gave us the site for the Sugar Bowl. The March to the Sea caused the burning of the site of the conference championship game. Whose name belongs on S.E.C. football telecasts?

It could happen.

Coach Glenn E. Schembechler is my favorite "Bo."

O.K., my second-favorite "Bo."

O.K., my third-favorite "Bo."

At any rate, I like Coach Schembechler a whole lot better than this guy.

I wonder whether Nestor will point out that Brooke Burke went to U.C.L.A.?

And now you know the rest of the story.

Go 'Dawgs!
