CMR: SEC Network will help recruiting

“It’s just like our championship games,” the Georgia football coach said of the SEC Network. “Our championship games get sold out before we even know who’s gonna play in the darn thing.”Richt said the network will offer fans who can’t attend Georgia’s football games in Sanford Stadium a chance to keep up with the program on a daily basis, not just game coverage but also week-to-week features.

“That just gives everyone more exposure to something that they really love,” he said.

NCAA 2016 eligibility rules have been amended:

The 2.3 GPA minimum and core course progression requiring 10 courses before the start of a prospect’s senior year in high school remain. It also appears that the new partial qualifier status, known as an “academic redshirt” will remain as well.This means that instead of requiring a 1080 SAT or 93 ACT with a 2.300 GPA as the minimum to play, the NCAA will now require a 900 SAT or 75 ACT with the minimum 2.300 to play. Athletes with a 2.000-2.299 GPA who still meet the current sliding scale will be academic redshirts. Same for athletes who have less than 10 core courses prior to senior year or less than seven English, math, or natural science courses prior to the same point.

Dawgs vs. Bama is the nation’s top recruiting rivalry:

Recruiting website 247Sports released a list of the nation’s recruiting rivalries on Thursday with Alabama vs. Georgia listed as the No. 1 rivalry in the nation.
The site notes that the intensity of the rivalry can be attributed to a number of factors, including the success of Alabama defensive coordinator and Georgia alum Kirby Smart in recruiting some of the state of Georgia’s top prospects in recent year.”The state of Georgia is closing in on California, Florida and Texas in terms of numbers of high-end college football prospects with pro potential and led by Bainbridge, Ga., native and former UGA player Kirby Smart, Alabama has made the state a huge priority and been extremely successful doing so,” 247Sports analyst JC Shurburtt writes.

SEC and National News

SEC talking with bowls:

The league has briefed bowl officials about a potential formula involving Belk, Music City, Gator, Meineke Car Care and possibly Outback in which the league would decide, with input from bowl officials, which SEC teams play in those games.Bowl officials and conferences feel matchups got stale in recent years as teams were slotted to games based on ranking within their conferences, often causing repeat performers.

SEC officials met this week with the Belk Bowl, which is located in Charlotte, the SEC Network’s new home. The SEC lost the Chick-fil-A tie-in to the College Football Playoff semifinal rotation, so the Belk is a chance to pair with the ACC in another southern bowl.

Spurrier get himself back in the news:

The SEC and ESPN are announcing a new mega deal that will bring yet more television revenue to major college athletics departments. South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier, never one to pull a punch, wonders when some of that money will trickle down to “the performers.”

“As the commissioner and the presidents and the athletic directors all say, we are going to make a whole lot more money,” Spurrier said. “My question is, ‘When are we going to start giving a little bit of it to the performers?’ Football and basketball players. It won’t do any good probably, but I’m going to still keep yelling for them. They bring in an awful lot of money for all of us.”

Here are some additional notes on the SEC ESPN Network:

  • Only two of the network’s 45 games will be broadcast on Thursday nights, and the league has no plans for new weeknight games.
  • CBS will allow one of the three Saturday games to go head-to-head with its SEC game of the week in the 3:30pm ET time slot. CBS will continue to have the first pick on games each week.
  • The SEC game of the week that airs on CBS can be re-aired on the SEC Network.
  • The network will also carry 100 men’s basketball games, 60 women’s basketball games, 75 baseball games and various events from other sports annually.
  • The network will televise the SEC Championships for all sports other than football.
  • The network will also offer hundreds of additional live events from various sports exclusively on the digital platform.

Bull crap! she did not have 2 aces. They turned the 4 cards over that were pulled...that's a poker face if I have ever seen one. she knew the rule and tried to play it.

A very big reason for Bama's recent success recruiting the state of Georgia has been the disarray at Auburn and Tennessee, and to a lesser extent Florida State.

Very true.

But at the same time,  they have beaten us head-to-head considerably more than we've beaten them.  Often, IMO, because they outworked us.

It'll be interesting to see how this head-to-head battle goes now that Garner is gone, and we've finally won a few big games.

I read it might've been from a spider bite. Crazy.

I know a guy that got bit by a spider and it basically crippled him. He got bit on the back of the neck and it messed with his nerves and spinal cord. Think the opposite of spider man. It really was a fluke accident.
