    Before every game, Coach Richt reads them a page from the book "Where the Wild Things are". This has lead to some success as by the end of last year Knowshon Moreno was able to recite the alphabet with no help at all! Rennie Curran is also apart of a program Richt installed to teach his players to count. Curran set a goal for himself to get all the way to 50 by the Florida game.

    This isn't a new thing - Rutgers has had billboards in South Florida for a while.

    But that won't rile the folks up like the Tennessee billboards will.

    C'mon - that's crazy talk. Sure the hype is there but ultimately the coaches and players have to get it done.

    Notre Dame has all the hype in the world - but they suck camel balls because of the talent level of the players (gradually improving) and the ability of the coaching staff (with the exception of Tenuta - they ain't worth a damn).

    Show me a league where Spurrier, Miles, Saban, Richt, and Meyer are coaches and I'll show you a strong league.

    I don't believe it's crazy talk. ESPN will hype the SEC and highlight their games. They'll beat the drums of the SEC teams and that will have some effect on the poll voters. ESPN's recruiting rankings will be biased toward SEC teams, and the network's abillity to hype the SEC whenever possible will influence recruits toward SEC teams.

    The SEC already has great coaches and players. But the ESPN machine will use its influence to keep the cycle going.

    To think it's the death knell for the other leagues is paranoia. But I believe that thinking it won't matter is naivete. I've seen them hype too many events/leagues that they cover, and give minimal coverage to those they don't cover, to make me seriously concerned by this development.

    There's no way any of those coaches leave any of those schools in the fifteen year life of the ESPN deal.

    Spurrier has to stay throughout the length of his initial contract if he wants to keep his membership at Augusta National.

    ESPN is thrilled, I'm sure. South Carolina is probably why they wanted the deal in the first place.

    While the video is old and grainy, the audio is really, really good on this. And the tune is peppy and dance-able.

    I give it a 10.

    You do need to turn your audio up to the highest settings to get the full effect.

    that would be more than 3 times as long as Saban is interested in keeping a job.

    Riley Cooper signed a MLB contract that lets him finish out his Senior season as a Gator wide receiver. Terms were around the 200K bonus range. Cooper is a project player, seen as a good shot to improve in the minors if he can devote himself solely to baseball. At one time he was seen as a potential top ten-twenty pick out of HS, but injuries his senior year and his devoting his time to football hampered his development. He has power, speed, and a good arm. Needs to learn to hit the curve ball. [insert Jobu reference here]

    lol...this guy is drunk if he thinks this is spurriers last year...spurrier is just now really getting established in the high schools. South Carolina is going to get a commitment from the number 1 high school football player in the nation PERIOD in this next class. He isnt going anywhere

    He might not get fired because they can't do much better. He's had more than enough time for his greatness to lift South Carolina.
    That excuse might fly if he were a first time coach and not a veteran head coach in SEC country.
    which would put their class about on par with BYU's 15th ranked class... and give them a class rated a bit behind 09 & well behind 07.

    Which high schools? Georgia? He should have already been estbalished in Florida. Surely you aren't saying he is establishing a great recruiting presence in-state? If so, I'll not only disagree, but flat out tell you tat you are clueless.

  14. But what do you know?

    It's not like you're a high school coach in the state of South Carolina or something....
