We are guaranteed to say nothing nice about you when you're gone. Ole Miss Robert Khayat, the charitable former employer, on his former football coaches:
"David Cutcliffe’s last two years we virtually had no recruiting, no signing of people who could play," Khayat says. "It was pretty natural to go for the person who was viewed as the best recruiter in the country. What we didn’t realize was that Ed was going to have so much difficulty coaching."
Khayat then went on to say that his first girlfriend smelled funny down there.
Contrarians, take note! You may just want to go ahead and predict great things for South Carolina, since even out-of-conference preseason analysis has them shedding frontal lobe capacity and taking several steps down the evolutionary rungs this fall.
"Auburn's Bigger Than Any Of Us Coaches." Quoth Terry Bowden in this Scarbinsky piece, which may be summarized as "Gene, let it go.

SOOOOOOWEEEEE. New Arkansas blog on SBN goes live: Arkansas Expats, who hopefully can channel the state's immensely weird fanbase without becoming paint-chip-eating mad in the process.

Okay, fine. Once a year we'll link to a College World Series post. It may as well be Brian's.
