Links To Distract You From Work On A Friday

The Junkyard Blawg over at the AJC has a poll up asking UGA fans who the best player ever is. Is there even a question it is Herschel Walker?

The GT Blog at the AJC takes a look at ACC Basketball after all the draft day decisions came in. Mark Bradley also chimes in with an early top 10 for next year appeasing some of his readers by putting GT at #10. Seems like just a throw in at #10.

Tony Barnhart at the AJC takes a look at the ACC Atlantic today. I value Tony's opinion about as highly as anyone who covers college football.

UGA joins the secondary violation train. Don't worry, it is kinda like the conga line at a wedding party. Everybody is doing it and they think you are not having fun if you don't (a quick google search yields multiple schools).

I found it interesting that Matthew Stafford was part of one violation for NFL tickets because I stood right next to the future #1 draft pick at the 2008 Masters at the 12th teebox. Hardly anyone recognized him despite the throngs of UGA fans. But it brings up an interesting point because Stafford would have technically had to pay for those tickets while his classmate in Business 101 could get them scot free.

And GoGamecocks.com asks if all secondary violations are the same?

The guys over at BC Interruption discuss how scared ACC teams should be of new HC Frank Spaziani. Spaz is a longtime DC at BC but is their third HC in the last four years.

Here is your daily Urban Meyer to Notre Dame rumor. This time suggesting that Meyer is concerned with Nick Saban's talent stocking at Alabama. Uh, I think Meyer is doing just fine at Florida and if the two stay at their respective schools for the next 5 years, I think the Gators will win just as many SEC titles than Alabama. And Meyer would be stupid to leave Florida for Notre Dame.

Augusta Chronicle profiles Georgia, Georgia Tech, South Carolina, and Clemson's chances according to the major preseason magazines.
Link

Fanblogs asks if there is a really a debate for the SEC vs Big 12? I say no and the SEC proved it last bowl season.
Link

Gator Sports Nation profiles three games that could sink Florida's title hopes. I definitely agree with #1 (UGA), but Miss State at #2 leaves me perplexed. I don't think Dan Mullen has a chance in his first year in Starkville with the lowest number of returning starters in the SEC and a new offensive scheme already void of talent.

10 Questions with ACC Commish John Swofford

The Gainesville Times discusses what college football means in the South. Basically everything.
Link

Chris Low of ESPN ranks SEC stadiums
Link

A Navy Blog, The Birddog, has a great write up breaking down Paul Johnson's spread, triple option offense. Despite rumors of its demise, I think GT gets better at running it in year two than defenses do stopping it.

Here is a list of major infractions by school. Congratulations to SMU (given) and Arizona State (are the girls there not good enough to get kids on campus?)
Link

the Ohio State University football program has reported 375 violations to the NCAA since 2000, the most of any school. Keep it classy Tressel. By the way, whatever happened with Maurice Clarett's allegations?
Link

Phil Steele has some interesting tidbits about college football over the last five years (and all time).
Link

Vanderbilt Baseball makes a huge hire getting Arizona State's recruiting coordinator.
Link

The Wall Strett Journal profiles the best baseball schools for turning out talent. Miami and Kentucky are mentioned prominently. That's right, Kentucky.
Link

Miami is leaning on the upperclassmen in '09. They need to with Randy Shannon feeling a little bit of heat after two subpar seasons for the Canes.
Link

The Orlando Sentinel ranks the 10 (actually 20) most powerful people in the ACC. Duke and North Carolina are represented well.
