A good day for Nathan Stanley at quarterback yesterday, best I've seen him look. Strong, accurate throws from start to finish, and some good catches by his receivers. More on that later this morning.
Players say the good experiences they've had on the road so far this year, series wins at Tulane and Kentucky, give them confidence in going on the road for six straight SEC games, to Georgia and South Carolina, over the next two weekends.
Also, Matt Smith relayed an interesting story regarding his recruiting with his home-state school, Georgia. It wasn't a situation where he almost went to Georgia. He was recruited by Bulldogs coach David Perno but never really cared for the program and didn't like a comment Perno directed to him when Georgia visited Oxford in 2007. Smith was a true freshman at the time and was being redshirted.
The information flow from the basketball office isn't very good righ now. Text messages seeking comment and updates on the status of Chris Warren and Terrico White have not been returned.
The feeling is that Chris Warren will return for his senior season, but the manner in which Warren fielded that question at the end of his junior season makes the issues less than settled.
For all that Terrico White did not get done as a sophomore, all that he can improve on, NBA draft analyst Chad Ford, on a pay site, still projects him as a late first-round pick, going No. 29 if he chooses to come out this season. Another site, DraftExpress, projects White going with the third pick of the second round to Detroit.
White must declare by April 25.
While logic and reason would seem to dictate that White would return and improve his stock, when college athletes are faced with this decision, you just never know.
