ESPN has hired former Georgia greats Matt Stinchcomb and David Pollack for their expanded SEC coverage this season. I don't get the logic behind Pollack.

Orlando Sentinel back again with the 10 most powerful people in the SEC. Interesting that Nick Saban is above Florida AD Jeremy Foley and Urban Meyer. Paul Finebaum makes an appearance at number nine, but I am sure he is pissed that Tim Tebow beat him out (5).
Tony Barnhart asks if anyone can stay with Florida in the East. If the Gators come to play 12 Saturdays next fall, I say 'No'.
Is South Carolina headed up or down in year five of Spurrier in Columbia? Funny how Stephen Garcia is listed as a reason South Carolina will better and worse.
Sporting News ranks their top coaches. Urban Meyer is #1. Nick Saban #2. Les Miles and Frank Beamer are in the top. Paul Johnson, Butch Davis, and Tom O'Brien make their "Five with sights on the top five" list. I ranked the coaches in the ACC and SEC a little while ago.
Mr. College Football, aka Tony Barnhart, asks if GT can stay with VT in the ACC.
Tony elegantly points out that it may the other teams, not VT, that trip Georgia Tech up.
With a three-game stretch against Clemson (Sept. 10), at Miami (Sept. 17) and North Carolina (Sept. 26), we’ll find out about the defense.Five reasons Clemson may be better in '09 and five reasons why they may be worse.
ACC Football doesn't sell like SEC Football though Commissioner John Swofford hopes it will.
