Thursday Links (8/7)

Ladies and gentlemen, Brett Favre will play football this year after all. Our long national nightmare is over. Please, put down your picket signs, take a deep breath, and go back to your homes. Everything is going to be OK.

Honestly, if you'd played a Brett Favre drinking game while watching "SportsCenter" last night, you'd have had alcohol poisoning after 15 minutes. It also struck me that they never referred to him as "Favre," instead always saying his full name. I can only assume then that saying "Brett Favre" adds an extra hour to your life or something. (Which, if true, means Stu Scott will live to be 136.)

Anyway, hopefully the Favre circus is over for now, so let's talk some college football instead.

The AJC's Jenna Marina writes about Blair Walsh's progression at kicker , and Mark Bradley makes some predictions .

Also from the AJC, Terence Moore writes that it's UGA's players who will need to stop the next scandal from happening. I couldn't agree more. Coaches can do everything in their power to stop off-field incidents, but as anyone who's tried to raise two teenagers, let alone 105 of them, there's really only so much you can do.

MAC Report looks at the big matchups for the small conference , including Central Michigan's trip to Georgia.

ESPN's Chris Low explains how the preseason voting is done, sort of.

Bleacher Report breaks down Georgia's running back situation . I think this is going to be an interesting storyline as the season plays out. Yes, Knowshon is great. Yes, he's going to get a lot of carries. But what happens on the depth chart behind him is, according to everyone I've talked to, up in the air. Caleb King has all the talent in the world, I've heard nothing but great things about Richard Samuel, and Carlton Thomas could step in as a change-of-pace guy this year, too.

Arkansas's site thinks Matt Stafford has multiple personalities . I like the line about his uncombed hair.

The Red & Black preps you for game days this season with some dos and don'ts.

And finally, a new report from the university says the job market for young journalists has remained steady. I think this means a Red & Black writer will be taking my job in about six months.
