Tuesday Links (1/27)

Spanning the interwebs to bring you the constant variety of links... the thrill of Ellerbe, the agony of Toby Jackson, and the human drama of Neil Diamond performances... these are today's links...

-- I included a few quotes from this in a notebook last week, but here's the full story on Georgia's new dedication toward its offseason workout program.

-- Georgia's pass rush took a big hit yesterday with the news that Toby Jackson will spend 2009 in junior college rather than on the Bulldogs' defensive line.

-- After a disappointing senior season, Dannell Ellerbe is focussed on the NFL draft.

-- Former Bulldog Hines Ward says he'll be ready to play in the Super Bowl. And Hines has reason to be excited -- a bear thinks the the Steelers will win.

-- Tim Tucker has some notes on AJ Green, Matthew Stafford and Geno Atkins in his latest blog.

-- Sounds like we can pretty much put those Willie Martinez to the U rumors to bed. Man, never has so much been made over one throw-away line in a South Florida newspaper article with no sourcing whatsoever.

-- Speaking of assistant coaches, I would scoff at what UGA is paying Bryan McClendon, but I'd happily take that salary any day.

-- Marc Weiszer has a handful of notes about Corvey Irvin, Asher Allen and Georgia recruiting.

* By the way, we'll be meeting with Aaron Murray and Zach Mettenberger later this afternoon. I'll have a post up tonight with some notes and quotes.

-- Former Georgia guard Mike Mercer has been kicked off the South Florida basketball team after his second arrest in four months.

-- Mark Gottfried is out as Alabama's head coach just a few years after an Elite 8 appearance. Dennis Felton, however, remains at UGA.

-- Dan Mullen is off to a nice start at Miss State when it comes to landing recruits, reports David Paschall.

-- This is an interesting post from Georgia Sports Blog, which calculates the actual costs of Stegeman Coliseum and Sanford Stadium.

-- Kyle King points out that Jan. 27 is a particularly historic day for UGA.

-- This is sort of a sad story from the Banner-Herald: Mark Richt was working to establish a trust fund for Decory Bryant, a former cornerback who suffered a career-ending injury in 2003, but the university asked Richt to cease his efforts after Bryant sued the school.

-- I'm guessing a few of you are Braves fans... here's the schedule for the team's winter caravan.

-- I'm generally opposed to remakes, but an '80s version of "The Wonder Years"? Now that might be an idea I can get behind.

-- I've never been able to decide whether I find tribute bands to be awesome or pathetic, and I think it all comes down to how seriously they take themselves. I think this guy leans a little too close to the latter category. Of course, when it comes to Neil Diamond tributes, they don't get any better than this.

In your comment about Dan Mullen, I think you meant to say Miss St. and not Ole Miss. :)

Really great article on the conditioning changes. It's amazing how much the behind-the-scenes stuff like that really does affect the way they play in the games.
