Wednesday Early Bird Edition

It's always nice to have something to read with your coffee, so join me in a quick perusal around the SEC blogosphere:

  • Georgia Bulldog Blog has an update on the Richt-Beamer dustup.

  • Senator Blutarsky of Get the Picture gives us this weirdness. Watch out for coffee through the nose when viewing these.

  • Flounder at Leftover Hot Dog has more on the Spurrier vs. UNC admissions debate. Maybe it is Spurrier who needs to rethink his process, after all, rather than UNC.

  • Jai Eugene at Loser with Socks skewers LeMarcus Coker, Urban Meyer, Louisville. Don't piss this guy off (pun sort of intended). Joel at Rocky Top Talk has much more on the Coker situation. I almost missed this post by Orson Swindle at EDSBS.

  • Outside the Sidelines reminds us (and especially me) about the rules regarding kickoffs. A few days ago, I suggested many teams might consider kicking the ball out of bounds on the kickoff, and having the ball placed at the 35 yard line to avoid a dangerous kickoff return team like UK. But even though this is normally the penalty that teams accept, they have options, and he quotes the rulebook:
    "A kickoff from Team A’s 30-yard line goes out of bounds untouched by Team B, and no other foul (or violation) occurs. RULING: Team B may accept a five-yard penalty from the previous spot with Team A kicking from the 25-yard line, or Team B may put the ball in play at Team B’s 35-yard line at the inbounds spot or at the inbounds spot where the ball went out of bounds. Team B may put the ball in play following a penalty at the dead ball spot."
    Read the whole thing. He's right, this change is M-A-S-S-I-V-E.

  • Jerry Hinnen of Joe Cribbs Car Wash has a massive post covering Auburn, the Worldwide Leader, shoes, and more!

  • Bobo at World Class Glass looks askance at the Jarrell Powe situation.
