Huh. So how many secondary violations does Georgia have over the past year? Six? Really? Why haven't we heard about this until now? I thought the "New York Times" (I suggest all Tennessee fans use the quotes when referring to them -- they're no longer who they claim to be) cared about this stuff. Or do they just like to imply that college girls are prostitutes to sell papers and lure traffic? Huh. (HT: 3SiB.)
Didja know . . . that Frank Beamer will be the second most-tenured coach behind Joe Paterno after Bobby Bowden retires this season? The natives are patient in Blacksburg.
There are no new details this morning on Lane Kiffin's dismissal of Brent Vinson from the team. Vol fans will remember that Vinson was a witness to a shooting back in May and that he had academic and buy-in problems when Kiffin first arrived, but no one's given any official reason for his dismissal so far. There are rumors, of course -- there are always rumors -- but I have not seen confirmation from any cite-worthy source. I imagine the "New York Times" will let us know the day before the bowl game.
Bruce Pearl's Vols are 1-5 in games in which they score less than 70 points ($?). USC will play at a rainy Sunday snail's pace tomorrow. The stage has been set. Action! (What does the director yell to begin filming a scene in which the actor is sleeping? Hmm.)
