Mid-Afternoon Nuggets

Just a couple more notes for you this afternoon:

1.  Tight end Philip Lutzenkirchen’s role could grow at Auburn as Gus Malzahn tweaks his non-Cam Newton offense.

2.  This writer says Stanley McClover and the rest of “the HBO Four” should tell the whole truth to the NCAA… if they really want to fix college athletics.

3.  Speaking of McClover, his mouth could save some Auburn students some money.

4.’s Dennis Dodd had a little fun with John Calipari at the Final Four and he caught some hell from some UK fans for it.  He responds by telling Cat fans: “Sometimes we give you stuff you need to read, as opposed to what you want to read.” 

5.  Speaking of Calipari, he’s lined up the top recruiting class in the country.  For the third straight year he’s done this.  Oy.

6.  Tennessee has a crowded secondary this spring.

7.  Georgia’s Travis Leslie plans to test the NBA draft waters without signing with an agent. 



"Again, I wasn't looking for attention. It was probably a question that needed to asked over the weekend in some form"

That's garbage. You most definitely were looking for attention. You wanted to be the one to ask the pithy, smart-mouthed question that all the media were dying to confront Coach Calipari with. Face it, you wanted to be the show. You wanted to be the talk of press row on Friday and of the journalists around Houston bars on Friday night. You succeeded. Your media bretheren (hopefully) showered you with the adoration you so richly deserved for putting evil John Calipari in his place.

Just remember, at the end of the day, despite how important you are in illuminating the evils of this world to us, the lowly masses, you are still (as the great Teddy Roosevelt put it) just the "critic", and as he so eloquently put it: "you don't count".

"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."
