You can talk Power Five and all the big names that go along with that, but Fox’s Bruce Feldman is talking Notre Dame and right now. …
In SEC law and order news, no charges will be filed against Tennessee wide receiver Von Pearson. …
This just in from the Florida QB race. Sounds familiar:
Mac wants to see how teammates respond to the two QBs, Grier & Harris, and how each elevates play of those around him.
One of the key parties in LSU’s QB race, returning starter Anthony Jennings, was suspended over the summer. Sounds like sophomore Brandon Harris took advantage of Jennings’ absence, but it’s unclear by how much.
Miles on Harris making up ground over summer: He certainly made up ground, how much remains to be seen. #LSU
Lee Corso says he’ll never again by able to dress as the Florida State mascot. Viewers are robbed of that joy, apparently, because comedian Bill Murray once grabbed the speak and threw it into a crowd. Or near a crowd.
Safety is a buzz word that usually makes all questioning cease. I get the safety part of the equation and find it a little strange, even for Murray, that somebody would chunk a spear like that. I’m wondering if he threw it away from the crowd, just not far enough away to appease everyone.
Looks like Corso also can’t dress up like Auburn’s Tiger, Aubie, for reasons that have nothing to do with safety unless Corso has had lice recently and Aubie is concerned about how his headgear might be returned.
The guess here is that if ESPN really wanted Corso in the Aubie outfit that we’d see Corso in it.
