Friday Links (4/24)

After spending the evening in South Jersey with a friend, I've got to hit the road soon for NYC, so just a brief run-down of links today. Don't forget to check the blog regularly today, as we'll have plenty of draft coverage. Also, if you haven't yet, be sure to follow me on Twitter as I'll be updating regularly.

-- T Kyle King has a great post up that, while he's not 100 percent sure how good Joe Cox will be, he's 100 percent certain that a lot of Georgia's success in 2009 will be riding on his arm.

-- Michael Carvell follows up on an earlier blog post with news that Mark Richt has requested a waiver so he can attend Chris Burnette's graduation.

-- TotalUGA has video of ESPN's debate on whether Matthew Stafford is worth the top overall pick.

-- Bubba N Earl looks at the potential impact of Stafford going first overall in the draft.

-- Another reason to count Mark Richt right up there with the elite coaches in the nation, despite the lack of a national title: ESPN's Chris Low looks at first round picks from the SEC this decade, and Georgia is right near the top (and likely will take over the top spot after this year).

-- Georgia didn't fair quite as well in the number of butts in seats for its spring game. Still, the SEC had a nice showing overall, as Battle Hymn Notes, um, notes.

-- Tennis, anyone?

-- Oh dear God. (h/t Blutarski)

-- UGA's journalism school is pondering the idea of starting a sports writing program. Please... we don't need more sports writers. We need more sports-writing jobs. Although, the world can never have too many Jason Butts.

-- I was discussing this with my buddy Dave the other day... As Deadspin (and others) point out, Lenny Dystra is a complete and total disaster. But as I pointed out, Dykstra wasn't even close to the nuttiest member of those mid-90s Phillies teams. That honor belongs to Dutch Daulton, hands down.

-- And finally, gradulations to Coach Meyers... Florida is in Washington today to meet the president. Might Obama's approval ratings finally dip? Or will Tim Tebow solve the economic crisis with a few inspiring words? "You will never see any secretary of the treasury in the entire country who will bail out an industry harter than I will. And you will not see someone push the rest of Congress as hard as I will push everybody for the rest of the recession, and you will never see a stimulus package inspire consumer confidence more than we will the rest of the season. God bless."
