Patterson proved his physical talents with Hutchinson's track team this spring, recording a 10.33-second 100-meter dash time and a long jump of nearly 22 feet. In football last fall, he ran for 390 yards and six touchdowns on 32 carries, caught 61 passes for 924 yards and 15 scores and averaged 51 yards on 10 kickoff returns with three touchdowns.

Cordarrelle Patterson arrives to lofty expectations | timesfreepress.com Averaged 51 yards per kickoff return? Can that be right? If so, be still, my heart.

"I can tell you exactly the first time they threw to me during action. It was early in the game." The day before, he'd had a lengthy interview with Tennessee quarterback Condredge Holloway. Afterward, Holloway pulled Lampley aside and guaranteed that, the following day, he would throw for a touchdown on the Volunteers' first play from scrimmage. Says Lampley: "I'm like, 'Pardon me?' He said, 'Trust me. We spent all summer studying film. We know exactly how they bit. This is play-action to Stanley Morgan, and we'll score on the first play from scrimmage.'" On Saturday, Tennessee won the coin toss. Got the ball on the 20. Play-action to Stanley Morgan. Eighty yards. Touchdown.

The last time SB Nation spoke to Green, his top three schools were Florida State, Florida and Notre Dame. "That's still my three, but some other teams have jumped in too, like Tennessee and Auburn," Green explained. "I went up there and liked what I saw. They are big time schools and big time football programs with great facilities." Green had just visited Tennessee and Auburn on his way back from a recent trip to Notre Dame.

For a second consecutive year, Spurrier has a divisive agenda heading into the four-day gathering in Destin, Fla., that begins Tuesday. The eighth-year South Carolina coach stirred last year's meetings with the idea of coaches paying players $300 a game, and his latest proposal is that only games within each division should be used in determining which teams play for the league championship. . . . . "What it does is it takes out the scheduling as far as who determines the winners of the divisions," Spurrier said. "Last year, for example, Tennessee and Florida both played Alabama and LSU, obviously two of the best teams in the country, and us and Georgia did not play them. So obviously us or Georgia were probably going to win the division.

Steve Spurrier still stirs Southeastern Conference gathering | timesfreepress.com So this sorta makes sense, right? If the SEC champion is going to be determined by pitting the best in the East against the best in the West, shouldn't only division records count? It levels the playing field, and I don't think it necessarily has to diminish non-division games, which will still count in national rankings. Hmm.

'And then a couple weeks after I had said on the air that one of the toughest things about coaching at Tennessee would be to find that color tie to go with all your outfits, Bill Murray grabbed an orange tie on an A to Z pub crawl in New York and said to me, "Here's your FULMERIZED tie. It's not that hard to find." - Dan Patrick, Those Guys Have All the Fun

I'm in my last year of grad school, which means buried under all my other reading it's taken me almost a full year to read just the first 228 pages of Those Guys Have All the Fun, the excellent oral history of ESPN by James Andrew Miller and Tom Shales. We looked at Chris Fowler's comments on Manning and Woodson in the book last May, but I just came across this story by Dan Patrick today and thoroughly enjoyed it.
