The SN Column is up, and it's a laundry list of things we won't do, but will eventually do, and are just copping to early. It's ADDriffic, as is this edition of the CI, which is being typed from the lobby of a very spiffy Hampton Inn in Statesboro, GA. (Assignment: Chris Hatcher and GSU, who play UGA in week one and could provide some smart insight into what makes Georgia so vrry, vrry hyped.)
Canes defensive tackle Antonio Dixon is out of the hospital in Miami following an overnight stay due to heat-related symptoms at a Miami practice. You might say, "What in the hell is someone from Miami doing having problems with the heat?"

R.I.P., Simpson Pepper. A moment of silence for the longtime Bama P.A. man, please. Have you hugged your P.A. announcer today? You should. Please drive safely.
Steele Hull. Grrrrr. LSU adds a walk-on fullback named "Steele Hull," who just became the default starter at the position for our all-name team.

SMQ is not a crook. He moves on, and we flash Ali G shoulder thumps and peace signs in his general directions. Respek, sir.
