Expansion And SEC Headlines – 5/25/12

Last Friday I had to cut the day semi-short to go have some routine bloodwork done.  Today, I have the obligatory follow-up with my doctor.  No worries, all appears to be clear again.  But this means two things…

First, today will again be a short day (barring another SEC-Big 12 surprise announcement).

Second, it’s another opportunity for me to tell all our male readers to talk to your doctor about a simple, PSA blood test.  One in six men will get prostate cancer at some point in their lives.  I was one of the rare fellas who got it before the age of 50 or 60.  But it can happen.  It happened to me at 40.  And without a PSA test ordered by a doc who believes we should due them pre-50, my pilot light would be burning out about now.  After speaking about this on television, two others who’ve sought the PSA test I’ve advised and have discovered their own cancer and beaten it.  Do me a favor and ask your doc about a PSA test.

Here endeth the public service message.  Now, to the quicky headlines:

 

1.  Clemson’s board of trustees says the school is committed to the ACC… but would listen to other offers.  Think a wife or husband would be okay with that kind of commitment to a marriage?  It was also stated that Clemson had not had any talks with any other league to date.

2.  Georgia Tech AD Dan Radakovich says his school is monitoring the expansion landscape, but doesn’t expect anyone to leave the ACC.  In fact, he said further ACC expansion “could be” in the cards.  Bet the folks at UConn and Rutgers just perked up.

3.  Virginia Tech AD Jim Weaver has once again said his school has “wanted to be (in the ACC) since the conference was started in 1953.”  He also said he doesn’t believe “there’s gonna be any movement at this juncture.”  At this juncture, huh?

4.  ESPN’s ACC beat-blogger says she’s been told by “several athletic directors and ACC officials” that “nobody is expecting anything to change anytime soon.”  Here’s hoping that’s true.

5.  This Pittsburgh writer correctly points out that anyone talking about a playoff involving four leagues and no one else is “fantasizing.”  Just as we suggested yesterday, he writes: “Imagine the litigation.  Or even legislation.”  Yep and yep.

6.  The Big East will likely receive a lot less TV dollars than it turned down from ESPN last spring.  Whoops.

7.  For all those claiming that ACC football trails SEC football because of funding — and therefore your school just has to move – you might want read this story.  Now, numbers can be fudged, but the numbers used by this writer show that the SEC zoomed past the ACC on the field while actually trailing that league monetarily.

8.  Speaking of money, Mike Slive isn’t the world’s highest-paid conference commissioner.  Or the second-highest.  Or…

9.  The transient nature of college basketball lessens the sport’s appeal for this writer.  More than 400 players are transferring across the country this offseason.  Ridiculous.

10.  Oh, great.  It’s preseason “watch list” announcement time for the more than 400 postseason football awards that are now handed out.  The Rimington Trophy put out its list yesterday.

11.  This writer says a true Plus-One system would be a step backwards.  We agree.  We said the same thing yesterday.

12.  A long-time LSU commitment told ESPN that the Tiger team “was separated” along North Louisiana and South Louisiana lines.  That’s one kid’s opinion, but it doesn’t sound too good.

13.  Will Muschamp says player arrests at Florida get more attention than these days thanks to more media and social media.  Ya think?

14.  Mark Richt’s performance bonuses at Georgia aren’t just going up, they’re doubling.  But his salary will remain the same.

15.  Wanna see a portrait of Kentucky’s Anthony Davis — complete with unibrow — made completely out of cereal?  Of course you do.

16.  UK’s John Calipari continues his push to schedule big teams in big arenas (just not Rupp Arena or opponents’ arenas)…

17.  And Coach Cal’s plan is drawing criticism from some academia.

18.  Tennessee’s Cuonzo Martin is demanding effort on and off the basketball court.

19.  And finally… Missouri and Texas A&M are getting ready to face big, bad SEC defenses.
