Sorry it's taken so long to get this going this week.
#1 What an AWFUL week for the teams we pull for here. UGA, GA Tech, Falcons, Braves, ..... terrible. I do like the fact that neither Coach Richt, Coach Johnson or Coach Smith seem happy with the status quo. Coach Richt called out his team and talked about yanking starters. Don't think we've ever heard that before. The heat is getting turned up in Athens.
#2 What will Urban Meyer do with Chris Rainey? Remember how he thought it was OK to suspend Brandon Spikes for one half for gouging a UGA player's eyes? Urban's not the strictest disciplinarian. The Florida OC yesterday said Rainey "isn't on the team right now." What does that mean? Run some steps and he's back on? UF AD Jeremy Foley and UF President will get involved in this decision. Great column by Tony Barhnart today. His link is on the right side of the Home Page.
#3 Are the Braves done? I don't have a real good feeling about them right now. We're getting pressure in the wildcard race as well. Somebody's got to step up and hit the ball besides Jason Heyward. The kid is doing all he can.
#4 Anybody notice Boise State lost the 7 1st place votes they got in the writers poll last week after Va Tech lost at home to James Madison?
#5 Took a beating on my picks last week. Hopefully knocked the rust off and will improve this week. I'll have them up Friday with a guest picker as well.
