Back from my plush New Orleans accommodations. Yes, that sign says "Redneck
Resort." No, it is not photoshopped. Yes, I took it myself on the Pearl River.
Yes, it's off-center.
- First, foremost. Huge tip of the coonskin cap to the guest posters from last week (in alphabetical order, because you're all my favorite): Aerobab, Corn from a Jar, Ghost of Neyland at Third Saturday in Blogtober, hooper, jon from Fulmers Belly, lawvol at Gate21, and rbk at The BruceBall Blog. I fear that I have ruined the blog by letting you guys raise the bar so high last week. Fantastic job.
- Second, secondmost. We'll be announcing the winners of the 2007 College Football Blogger Awards all day today and tomorrow. Orson, as this year's host, will be kicking things off at around 8:00 EST, so keep your eye on Every Day Should Be Saturday for that.
He's back. Remember Larry? Well, he's emailed a response, and it looks like he busted out his big box of crayons for this one:
He's dressed him in Big Blue, see?
Actually, Larry and I have passed more than just an email or two back and forth, and, as I had hoped, the dialog has taken a turn toward the good-natured.
- A Commit. Hooper's posted over in the diaries that No. 28 overall prospect Kenny Hall committed to the Vols right after attending yesterday's Tennessee-Kentucky game. Ghost of Neyland notes that Hall chose the Vols over the likes of UCLA, Duke, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Clemson and Kentucky, among others. Pretty good company.
