Some days, you wake up and just thank the gods of journalism that ESPN exists and can interview L.L. Cool J on his thoughts about A-Rod and Madonna while promoting his new album on "SportsCenter." I sometimes wonder why I even watch anymore.
Anyway, today's links...
* From today's Telegraph, I have a story on Reshad Jones' change in approach as well as 10 bold predictions for the college football season (which are actually unlikely predictions, rather than just normal predictions in bold typeface).
* Sports Central details reasons why Georgia should not be ranked No. 1.
* The Los Angeles Times has Georgia ranked No. 2.
* The AJC discusses Mark Richt's concern about the Bulldogs' offensive line.
* Chip Towers also blogs about the NFL futures for Matthew Stafford and Knowshon Moreno. I think his predictions are dead on, which would make any championship just a little bittersweet.
* A Memphis-area wide receiver has Georgia on his short list, according to ESPN.
* The Red & Black writes that UGA gymnastics coach Suzanne Yoculan was punished by the NCAA for unsportsmanlike behavior.
* Total UGA's Brett Jensen has a good story on Asher Allen's approach to returning punts.
* The Albany Herald has a story on Vince Vance and the offensive line.
* Never mind the Olympics, the USA took home a much more important championship this week.
* And finally, I wanted to welcome David Ching back to Athens. It is definitely a loss for the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer and all of us working with McClatchy newspapers, but David will do a great job at the Banner-Herald, and I'm definitely looking forward to having him in town.
