Busy day yesterday, so mere bullets:

  • Les Miles apparently made some comment to a group of LSU fans about how they shouldn't be over-excited about LSU beating Alabama because (paraphrasing here) "it seems like a lot of teams from Louisiana beat Alabama." That's an obvious reference to 'Bama's loss to Louisiana-Monroe last season and an absolutely hilarious thing to say while in Birmingham, Alabama.
  • Urban Meyer, oy. Florida, oy. Meyer apparently wants to have the "fastest team in the nation." It seems the Gators have just recruited some guy who either set or came close to a world record in the 100 or something, so current Gator Chris Rainey challenged him to a race and beat him. According to Meyer, had ESPN College GameDay known about the contest, they would have been there. Oh, and Florida could have sold 10,000 tickets, too. Okay, then. Settle.
  • How many years has M. Massaquoi been playing for Georgia, anyway? Does "M." stand for Methusala? Whether it does or not, that's what I'm calling him from now on. Join me, won't you?
  • Anyone have an idea why Robert Ayers is representing Tennessee today rather than unanimous All-SEC first teamer Anthony Parker? Need one from defense and one from offense? If so, then that makes sense. Otherwise, it's a hmm. No offense to Mr. Ayers.
  • All right then. Carry on.
  • [Note by Joel, 07/24/08 8:45 AM EDT ] Update. Do not miss Garnet and Black Attack's take on the Tim Tebow Phenomenon, including this amusing bit:

    He was smooth. He was suave. He was charming. (The official transcript of his remarks has him "smiling" five times and audience "laughter" four times. The transcriber did not note when the audience was "fawning," though it would have lost its meaning since the entire room practically swooned whenever he spoke.)
