Here’s an article in the Wall Street Journal with the title “What the Rise of Southern Football Says About America”. Good reading.
Just a quick post, but the site is now operating using WordPress 2.7. You shouldn’t be able to tell a difference from the frontend, but the administrative sections look amazing and are really easy navigate. If you have a WordPress site and haven’t updated already, you should get on to it. And once you install WordPress 2.7, you can keep it updated with one-click! Enjoy, because WordPress 2.7 makes posting so much easier – meaning you should see lots more from me (as soon as finals are finished).
This is the first snowfall I’ve experienced since I’ve moved to Kansas (there was snow on the ground when I got back from Thanksgiving). The storm report says we received 0.7 inches of snow, and there were 54 reported accidents in Douglas County with 5 minor injuries. The driving wasn’t bad (for me), but there was a bit of ice this evening in my parking lot and on some walkways. Now, surviving the rest of the winter will likely be much more difficult.
Georgia Sports Blog has this story, but the jist is: Alabama wide receiver Julio Jones was named SEC Freshman of the Year. But Georgia freshman AJ Green was named First Team All-SEC Wide Receiver, while Julio Jones made the Second Team as All-SEC Wide Receiver. All honors were decided by the SEC media.
Does that make any sense? Second Team freshman beats out First Team freshman (at the same position) for Freshman of the Year. Still no logic?
How about this: Green had 104 more yards and twice as many touchdowns (8) while he played one less game than Jones (SEC Championship game).
I’m so tired of the media messing up college football.
On a high note, Georgia had eight players named to the first and second team, which is more than the SEC Champion Florida Gators.
Eight players did so well, while the team did so poorly. Call that coaching?
