Wednesday Links (12/17)

Four more days of practice before the Bulldogs hit the road for Christmas break. I'll have a report from Georgia's pre-Bowl media day later this afternoon. In the meantime, here are a few links for your reading pleasure...

-- You may remember my "Catching Up With..." post with Matt Stinchcomb a while back. Well, Matt's brother, Jon, was named the New Orleans Saints' Man of the Year.

-- Didn't post any links yesterday, but I had a story in Tuesday's Telegraph on Georgia's senior wide receiver Kenneth Harris, who has managed a pertty productive, if never particularly star-worthy, career.

-- ESPN's Chris Low takes a look back at Georgia's season and hands out a few awards.

-- Nothing like anonymous sources in journalism. Pro Football Weekly uses one to completely bash Mark Richt and the Georgia program in the final graph from this post.

-- T. Kyle King states the case for Tommy Tuberville to come aboard as Georgia's defensive coordinator. It's a nice thought, but I just can't see Tubs doing it unless he really, really wants to stick it to Auburn -- which I suppose is a possibility.

-- Here's a few more thoughts on Georgia's defensive struggles, courtesy of Get the Picture and Tim Tucker.

-- Good news for Georgia fans, bad news for Tony Ball. The Georgia running backs coach is not one of the finalists for the Chattanooga job.

-- MLive has video highlights of Mike Dantonio and Michigan State's assistance talking about Georgia and says Javon Ringer and company are embracing their role as the heavy underdog in the Capital One Bowl.

-- Bleacher Report makes its predictions on who will head to the NFL draft after the season ends and calls Georgia the year's biggest flop.

-- Tony Barnhart takes a closer look at the racial implications of the Auburn hire.

-- Georgia Tech is adding some run-n-shoot to its offense? Yikes! (As a side note, I used to work with the man who made the Run N Shoot famous, former Falcons assistant Mouse Davis. Among his many hilarious eccentricities was, whenever he would leave a message for someone on a voice mail, he would always tell them to "give me a dingle when you get this." Ah, crazy old men. Good times.)

-- 960 the Ref catches up with UGA assistant coach Pete Herrmann in advance of the Dawgs' game against Wofford this weekend.

-- Hoops tickets are being discounted over the holidays for those looking for some economically sound entertainment.

-- ESPN's ombudsman discusses the interesting conflict of interest that the network will face when it takes over coverage of the BCS in a couple years.

-- Remember on Monday when I joked about Bush's shoe dodge being very Matrix-esque. Well, God bless the Internet.

-- Another nail in the coffin of newspapers: Detroit's two biggest papers will halt daily delivery.

-- If you ever find yourself at a loss to describe the meaning of the word "irony" to a someone, this story of a man who named his son Adolf Hitler asking for "a little tolerance" should do the trick.

-- And finally, I linked Monday to AFI's list of the year's best movies, so allow me to follow that today with a list of 2008's worst feature films.

1) Ugh, Bleacher Report. So awful. Without fail.

2) The Tulsa World is reporting that Archie Manning met with the Staffords, and, like their neighbor Gil Brandt, told Stafford to return for his senior year. Stafford has said he will meet with Coach Richt and a few advisers while back in Dallas for the break before making his decision. Gil Brandt, Archie Manning, and Mark Richt all appear to be telling him to stay. So will Stafford listen... or was the "listen to my advisers" line he used all season just a load to keep the press and fans at bay?

Man, you've been doing some web-crawling DH. Nice.

Just one thought on the MSU coaching staff:

DC Pat Narduzzi seems like a solid coach.

Beat those Spartans!
