It is hotter than the hinges of Hell here in Kentucky, so I assume it is equally steamy throughout most of the South. So I'm hoping to find some really cool posts around the SEC blogs to distract us from all this sweaty heat.
So here we go:
- Bobby O'Shea at Vanderbilt Sports Line takes Ryan Ferguson of AOL Fanhouse to task over Ryan's inclusion of Earl Bennett, Vandy's most touted wideout, as #1 on his list of Most Overrated players of 2007:
I think it's safe to say that Ryan Ferguson's "analysis" on AOL Sports' FanHouse that His Name is is the most overrated player in the SEC isn't going to earn him any accolades from VSL. It's not that this guy is wrong, it's that he's so wrong. Feel free to clog Ryan's blog with comments about how wrong he is.
- Greg Ellis says Sylvester Croom has taken the Bulldogs indoors, and not because of the heat.
- College Football Resource has his weekly post up, and it is full of goodness as usual. Today's post covers USC, Auburn, Florida, Hawai'i, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia Tech .... Need I continue? Read the whole thing.
- Football Capital of the South is taking a break from blogging to deal with life issues.
- The Georgia bloggers are a little miffed at Frank Beamer, coach of
archrival GeorgiaVirginia Tech. Seems that Beamer recently suggested the Dawgs scouted his practices a little too closely last year. Georgia Bulldog Blog has coverage, as does Georgia Sports Blog.
- Loser with Socks' Jai Eugene takes a colorful (and somewhat off-color) shot at West Virgina's schedule, and the Big East in general. Fun, funny read, unless you are a Big East or Mountaineer fan ...
- Ryan Ferguson of Fanhouse (he counts as an SEC blogger because he is also over at Orange and Blue Hue) has this preview of Florida for 2007. Despite his optimism, there is some pain there for Gator fans, I think.
- Outside the Sidelines says that the Heisman is a team award, and backs it up. Does this bode ill for Darren McFadden?
- Joel at Rocky Top Talk looks at the "dawn of full contact" at Tennessee today, but wonders if anyone will actually get hit due to the team speed.
- Nico at Roll 'Bama Roll asks "Which teams labor in futility". Naturally, he provides a few suggestions.
- I'm a Realist at The Cover Two has some "Thumbs up, Thumbs down" for today.
- The Hog Blogger thinks the Razorbacks have a long way to go, and he gives reasons.
- The Tide Druid says there are five people who brought down Mike Shula, and ranks them in order of importance.
