55. Jason David; cornerback; Colts, Saints; 2004-2008: Easily the lousiest cornerback of the 2000s, and a man whose 16 career interceptions can be chalked up to the old adage, "If they throw your way 30 times a game, you might catch one or two."

76. Eric Curry; defensive end; Buccaneers, Jaguars; 1993-99: When the Bucs picked him with the sixth selection in the 1993 Draft, the Alabama stud was considered a game-changing pass rusher. His 12 career sacks — many of which came by pure accident — dispute that point.

Major or Not? Tennessee’s Cover Charge Violation

10

The bylawblog has an interesting post regarding the potential seriousness of the "cover charge" violations. Money line: "Statements from the bar owner like the fact that 'all' of the UT student-athletes visited the bar and at least some were on a first-name basis with the owner (meaning they were presumably regulars) means the total value of the benefits could be up into the thousands of dollars even if the benefit was only $2 to $5 a pop. The key issue will be time and how far back UT can find evidence of the extra benefits." Pretty interesting especially after reading the co-owners statement. It's pretty clear that "VIP treatment" wasn't a one shot deal, but a regular occurrence. If we're talking cover charges and drinks, then obviously there's not going to be a paper trail. But as we all know, the NCAA COI doesn't need no stinkin' paper trail.

Ouch. Just seems like it keeps getting worse for UGA.

OU President says Texas A&M and OU were extended offers to join SEC

"The president of the University of Oklahoma says his school and Texas A&M both received invitations to join the Southeastern Conference..." "Boren says because the SEC offer didn't include Oklahoma State and Texas, he didn't consider it a good option."

Steele, who's known as one of the best recruiters in the business, has deep Tennessee ties. He played and served as a grad assistant and a position coach there under Johnny Majors.

Kudos to Dooley if this is the case as he landed his first big hire as the head coach at UT. Steele is a great recruiter which will bode well for a program without a natural recruiting base. Reports: Kevin Steele to Tennessee as defensive coordinator

The Las Vegas Sun, ESPN.com and others are reporting that former Alabama coach Dennis Franchione was scheduled to interview today for the open head coaching position at UNLV. ...Alabama offensive coordinator Jim McElwain had been mentioned in connection with the UNLV job, though Franchione and Montana coach Bobby Hauck look to be the two finalists.

Former UA Coach Dennis Franchione reportedly interviewing for UNLV job It sure seems coach McElwain is probably going to be mentioned as a candidate for just about every HC job out there for a mid-major program. Hopefully this is the last one, and he comes back for at least another year.

Houston Nutt to Kansas?

Bobby Jackson, 1936-2009

"Mobile's Bobby Jackson, the first starting quarterback for Bear Bryant at Alabama, died Monday night at the age of 73. The long-time Mobile resident, who was born in Geneva, became ill and was hospitalized two weeks ago. He was moved to a local hospice facility five days later. Jackson was a multi-sport athlete at Murphy High School, earning All-America honors in football. He signed a football scholarship with Alabama, playing his first two seasons under J.B. "Ears" Whitworth and his senior season of 1958 under Bryant. "

Ryan Pugh, a real college football thug

Ghost of Neyland gives a parting shot to one Mr. Pugh of Chop Block U. "If we’re going to label Blount a thug and condemn him for inflicting punishment on an opponent’s face, what are we going to do with Pugh, who has a nasty habit of going after opponent’s careers? If you ask me, this unassuming, I’m-not-good-enough-so-I’m-going-to-cheat-to-make-up-for-it piece of crap is college football’s real thug."

So Why All the Optimism Surrounding Greg McElroy?

ed. - bumped from the fanposts Its been expressed in several threads on RBR throughout the off season that there seems to be a calm optimism surrounding Greg McElroy. Many have even suggested that...

Tuberville spreads the fear

61

Former Auburn coach Tommy Tuberville attended the Manning Pass Academy with his son and had this to say about McElroy at the Little Rock Touchdown Club recently: "Watching him handle himself, the way he threw the ball, listening to the other quarterbacks talk about him, I think he’s going to be a very, very good quarterback," he said. McElroy is the man

Upshaw won't be suspended

"University of Alabama linebacker Courtney Upshaw will not be suspended from the team in the wake of a verbal altercation with a girlfriend that police say became physical, a source close to the football program said. A source close to the Alabama football program said Upshaw will be disciplined internally instead of being suspended for any games."

8

From a quarterback's point of view, when you see (receivers) getting open all over the field, had I been a little bit more accurate, those guys' numbers would have been a heck of a lot better on Saturday," McElroy said Monday. "Those guys are getting open and making plays. I've just got to do a better job getting the ball to them."

From Gentry Estes' notebook this morning. This is gives me the warm and fuzzies. Especially since certain other QB's have shown a tenancy to throw their own teammates under the bus after missed opportunities.

Saban: 4 Players dismissed from team including Alonzo Lawrence

8

"Alabama coach Nick Saban says four players have been dismissed for violating team rules. Linebackers Brandon Fanney, and Prince Hall, defensive back Alonzo Lawrence and running back Jermaine Preyear weren't on the roster released Wednesday, when the team reported for fall camp." This is disappointing. I was really looking forward to seeing Lawrence play.

Mobile, AL makes The Economist

Nothing to do with football and total shameless self-promotion. But hey, fall camp starts Wednesday! RTR!! "Austal, an Australian shipbuilder, came to the city in 1999 and has been expanding. The port recently opened a new container terminal. ThyssenKrupp is building a large steel plant that will bring 2,700 jobs to the region next year. Boeing, Alabama’s aerospace giant, is based in Huntsville but is spreading to the south of the state. All this has given Mobilians their sunny outlook, despite the current economic woe. Last year Moody’s Economy.com ranked Mobile County first among America’s 363 metropolitan areas for projected economic growth between 2007 and 2012. In June Forbes included Mobile (and Huntsville) in its list of the ten cities best placed for recovery."

My Revenge List

Another Tiger Prowl FAIL

Mobile's Solomon Patton, one of the targets of the "Tiger Prowl," has verbally committed to Florida after his recent visit. "Patton, an all-state selection in 2008 and a four-star prospect according to Rivals.com, said his final decision came down to Florida, Alabama, Ole Miss and Florida State." Hmmm, notice who wasn't on that short list?

Spurrier fans the flames: Meyer to Notre Dame in 2010

3

As if Paul Finebaum needed any help... "They’ve still got that rumor going down there, Paul, that if he has about one more big year he might be the Notre Dame coach," Spurrier said. "I know you’ve heard that rumor." Finebaum chimed in that "people at Notre Dame firmly believe" Meyer will jump to South Bend next year. Meyer grew up in Ohio and has repeatedly referred to Notre Dame as his "dream job." But he chose Florida over the Irish in 2004.

"attempting to extort nude photos of at least 50 teenage girls and young women in three states after he gained control of their e-mail, Facebook and MySpace accounts." "Upon release, Jonathan Vance, 24, will have to register as a sex offender and will serve the rest of his life on supervised probation. He will be barred from having any contact with minors and will have his computer access restricted." "Vance, a 2007 Auburn University graduate and a member of his church choir, pleaded guilty in January to several charges including enticing or coercing someone into illegal sexual activity and violating the interstate communications law by extorting something of value and threatening to ruin someone's reputation." Happy Friday.
