I’m glad this whole mess is over. Good to know I didn’t waste a bunch of time speculating about the imminent conference apocalypse when the whole thing amounted to Nebraska and Colorado jumping ship from the Big XII.
That Chip Brown guy from the Texas Rivals site sure is milkin’ his 15 minutes. Now he is babbling some nonsense about Arkansas to the Big 12 minus 2 and basically called the Gumps a bunch of dum dums.
Much to do over nothing in the end. I think the basic thing we all learned from this is that Texas is basically the Boss Hogg of the Big XII.
LET THE FEAST BEGIN!
Looks like UGA may be stepping forward to begin picking the carcass of the new post-sanctions USC.
Former Carver standout Jarvis Jones has received his walking papers from USC and is reported to be hanging around Athens at the moment. FSU and UGA are believed to be competing for his services.
In this moronic internet pundits humble opinion, landing Jones could do more than help just help out the UGA linebacker corp. Snatching away Jones from USC could put to rest the “Carver hates UGA” rumblings and may even have an impact on Carver RB Isaiah Crowell’s choice of schools.
UPDATE: Jarvis Jones has transferred to UGA per the AJC. Since Jones was granted a release prior to the NCAA hammer drop on USC, he may have to sit out one year pending an appeal from UGA. Regardless of whether or not he is permitted to play in Athens next season, Jones will still have three years of eligibility remaining.
In other recruiting news, the Dawgs scooped up “silent Georgia Tech commit” Nick Marshall recently, and may have a shot at adding another top notch prospect when Tucker linebacker James Vaughters announces his decision around lunchtime this Thursday. Dalton tackle prospect Watts Dantzler will announce his decision between Auburn and UGA this Sunday. Watts’ late father Danny was an O-lineman for the Dawgs in the early 70′s.

I am a little surprised to see Okie State on the list, and the absence of Clemson during the Danny Ford years is puzzling as well. The author does not include the George O’Leary resume’ padding, or the Mike Price up in da’ club incidents, as these are considered to be individual “achievements”.
