SEC Headlines – 7/3/12

1.  This writer says college football needs a little gun control. 

2.  The SEC is getting dragged into a lawsuit between former athletes and the NCAA over video game licensing rights.

3.  The ACC has cut a 12-year deal with the Orange Bowl…

4.  Good luck keeping up with the new screwy bowl situation… including the “Champions” Bowl… if it doesn’t merge with an existing game.)

5.  Having a media member inside the playoff selection committee’s meeting would answer a lot of questions about transparency.  Capital idea.

6.  What’s the best athletic conference – the Pac-12 or the SEC?

7.  Mississippi State is still waiting on the NCAA clearing house on a couple of 2012 signees.  (Just like I’m still waiting for the Publishers Clearing House to make me a millionaire.)

8.  MSU had first-round picks in the NFL, NBA and MLB drafts… but does that mean the school’s program is catching up with the SEC big boys?

9.  Most Rebel fans seem to like the game day experience at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.

10.  Texas A&M’s SEC dream has been realized…

11.  And Kevin Sumlin is ready to compete with the best.

12.  Missouri is excited to be exiting the Big 12 and entering the SEC.

13.  One Florida signee was denied admission yesterday, but another got the go-ahead from the school’s front office.

14.  Booted Georgia tailback Isaiah Crowell could get five years in jail over gun charges, but probation is much more likely.

15.  You remember Oprah’s book club?  Well say hello to the “Coach Cal Book Club.”

16.  Just to reiterate… South Carolina president Harris Pastides says he has no timetable for replacing AD Eric Hyman who left for Texas A&M.

17.  Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray is the SEC’s 14th best player according to this paper.

18.  Tracy Webster has been promoted to associate head basketball coach in Knoxville.

19.  Finally, eight SEC players have earned preseason All-America honors.  (Anyone else think handing out “honors” based on what someone thinks will happen is ridiculous?)

Another Group Now After Boone’s Scalp At UM

The group Forward Rebels now has some company.  A new movement is utilizing Twitter to bring about the dismissal of Ole Miss athletic director Pete Boone.  The word they’re spreading via social media — make it a “Black Out Boone” day on Saturday.

All season, Ole Miss fans have been encouraged to wear red to Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.  The Black Out Boone folks are asking like-minded individuals to show up in either black or Rebel navy.  They want them to cheer on the Rebels… while simultaneously showing a lack of support for school’s top athletic official. 

Boone wouldn’t comment on the movement when asked about it by The Jackson Clarion-Ledger.  But Houston Nutt’s not in favor or it.

“Let’s don’t do that.  Let’s wear red like they’ve asked you to all year long.  I don’t want Arkansas coming up, being the only ones in red.  This is our stadium, let’s wear red.  Let’s get into the game.”

From what sources tell us, Nutt and Boone don’t have the very best of relationships at this point, but Nutt probably realizes the more pressure is put on Boone, the more likely he’ll whack some underling in order to appease the masses.  And Nutt could very well be that underling.

Call Me a Nutt Job

Ole Miss
Content provided by The Ole Miss Blog – It’s not the official Ole Miss blog, but it should be.

I remember three short years ago, the Sunday after Ed Orgeron single-handedly pulled off one of the most moronic coaching jobs in moronic coaching history, receiving a text from a friend saying Orgeron he’d been canned. It was the most jubilant I’d been that entire fall. I’ll be watching twitter closely today. I need to feel that way again. 

I know you’re out there people who think it’s crazy to fire a coach for one bad year. But this wasn’t just a bad year. It was a catastrophically bad year. The Rebels lost to Jacksonville State and Vanderbilt – at home. And by the way, the Commodores sucked so bad they fired their coach last night. Ole Miss also lost to Tennessee (winless in the SEC until OM) 52-14. Topping it with a home manhandling by MSU pushes me over the edge.

There can be no doubt that Mississippi State was the FAR superior team to Ole Miss. They beat the Rebels in every facet of the game – starting with the coaching. Dan Mullen issued a challenge to Nutt, called him out on the turf and then proceeded to kick his team’s butt all over Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. If that doesn’t sting I don’t know what does.

I know. I know. Nutt’s been to two Cotton Bowls. First time in 50 years. Blah, blah, blah.

What real Ole Miss fan was happy with the product on the field last year? The Rebels were preseason ranked in the Top 10 and finished nowhere close. If not for stumbling across Dexter McCluster in October, the Rebels would have never seen the inside of the new Cowboys Stadium. That wasn’t good coaching. That was fast running by McCluster. The season was a disappointment in every other way. Jevan Snead – a HEISMAN TROPHY candidate – tanked.

Arkansas fans call Nutt a quarterback killer. We said they were jealous and crazy.

In a twist of sheer irony, enter one Jeremiah Masoli – a legitimate Heisman contender who should be playing for the BCS Championship in January.

Jeremiah Masoli now leads the SEC in interceptions. Another talent wasted.

That’s two Heisman contenders in two years doing belly flops on the artificial turf of Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. Snead’s talent was questionable. Masoli’s wasn’t. It’s not irony folks. It’s the coach. 

Maybe Snead wasn’t so crazy electing to enter the draft a year early after all. Maybe Kent Austin actually did had a good reason to move to upstate New York and disappear into the Ivy League. 

Where is the promise for the future? Where? Show it to me. Please. Make me believe Nutt and Ole Miss will be better next year. I want to believe. I really do. Until you can make me believe I’ll be watching my phone, hoping for a text message. 

Now I’ve got to go help my kids get ready for church before I get fired.

Mullen Still Talking At The School Down South

Dan Mullen is like a talking doll for reporters.  Want a good quote, just pull the string.

When told this week that the last MSU coach to win his first two Egg Bowls was Allyn McKeen back in 1939 and 1940, Mullen quickly quipped, “We plan on partying like it’s 1940.”

Mullen also said yesterday that he believes State will have an advantage playing in Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in Oxford on Saturday.  Why?

“The game is being played in the state of Mississippi,” Mullen told The Jackson Clarion-Ledger.  “We’re Mississippi State.  We represent the state of Mississippi.  So, a game being played in this state, we consider it one we should win.”

What a needler.
