Posted on the recruiting thread yesterday by Reddawg13

So, at the bar last night they had an auction to raise money for a worthy cause. One of the items was a really cool UGA football blanket. I bid on it and won it for 75.00. Then they had a Tenn. football blanket and by golly it went for 75.00 also! So, I went up to the stage told the auctioneer here is 20.00 more dollars……. and you need to make an announcement that the UGA blanket sold for 95.00 because no way in hell I am letting a Tenn. blanket sell for the same price as a UGA blanket. He made the announcement the audience cheered, the worthy cause got more money and UGA reigned supreme! By God!

NFL may take two coaches from LSU

First off, the New York Daily News reported Saturday that Thomas McGaughey is “the leading candidate” for a position with the New York Jets.  The NFL club is looking at McGaughey for special teams coordinator.

McGaughey has spent the past three seasons in the same role with the Tigers.  He also serves as a defensive assistant.

Losing McGaughey might be the least of Miles’ worries, however, as rumors are making the rounds that the Cleveland Browns are eyeing offensive coordinatorCam Cameron for the same position.  While Cameron spent the 2013 season at LSU, the previous 19 years of his coaching career had been spent as an assistant/coordinator/head coach at the NFL level.

If Cameron were to decide to jump back to the NFL after just one season at LSU, it would be a rather significant blow to the Tigers’ offense.

The secret stipend

There also is this little secret that many head coaches choose to ignore when they talk about how college athletes live in virtual poverty while they compete: Those athletes who qualify on a need basis receive a federal supplement every semester.

It is called Pell Grant money. Qualified athletes receive up to $5,645 per year, money that is deposited in their bank account by the federal government. The money can be spent any way an athlete chooses. Some send a bulk of the money home for family needs. Others use it to make monthly car payments. Still others use it for spending money.

The money helps athletes from impoverished backgrounds live the life of an average student without hardship.

The sad state of SEC basketball

SEC basketball is an intriguing case study because the league is overshadowed by the dominance of its football conference, which came within 79 seconds this month of crowning an eighth consecutive national champion. But the league this offseason rightly addressed growing issues in men’s basketball: Between 2004 and 2008, the SEC averaged 5.6 NCAA tournament berths per year. The last five seasons? The SEC averaged just 3.8 berths.

C.M. Newton, the former Kentucky athletic director and current consultant to Slive, said Slive’s move to create the position of associate commissioner for men’s basketball for veteran staff member Whitworth was a “bold move that was badly needed.”

Six teams improved their strength of non-league schedule ratings, and Whitworth expects “significant improvement” once they get a full year to review the schedules and engage in “constructive dialogues” with the 14 schools. But several SEC teams still underwhelmed on the court in non-conference play, which establishes an initial benchmark for teams and leagues.

That has left the SEC with two potential Final Four teams — Florida and Kentucky — and a cluster of teams that have yet to distinguish or separate themselves. The SEC could see as many as five teams make the NCAAs. A doomsday scenario also exists for it to earn only two bids.

Penn State paid $1.5 million to buy out Franklin’s contract

Penn State was prepared to pay a pretty penny in order to hire their next football coach after Bill O’Brien left for the NFL’s Houston Texans. Not only did the university shell out a nice contract for James Franklin, making him the second highest paid coach in the Big Ten behind Urban Meyer, but the university agreed to pay Vanderbilt $1.5 million to buy out Franklin’s contract. According to a report by USA Today, Penn State confirmed the buyout price tag Friday night even though the university is not bound by law to disclose such information. In an effort to be more open, a philosophy embraced and acted on with more frequency since the dark days of November 2011, Penn State confirmed the buyout price to USA Today when asked to follow up on details seemingly missing from the initial contract details for Franklin. It was previously reported Penn State will be paying Franklin $1.3 million for a base salary and a total of $4 million for the 2014 season with bonuses and pay increases kicking in every year on his six-year contract.
