So this weekend flew by and after the low country boil the 104 degree heat, winning the cornhole tournament, losing a push up contest to a girl and basically getting awesome for the weekend we're back to charge through the season.
We'll be live chatting this Wednesday so be ready to bring your questions about everything you see here and what else is involved heading into the college football season. Get the news and notes after a glimpse into the "Ice-ing on the Cake" from lake weekend.
Speaking of being iced it looks like Jeremiah Masoli the wayward quarterback who just graduated from Oregon is looking for a home. Houston Nutt from Ole Miss reached out to Masoli and the battering ram of a quarterback sent his release papers into the Rebels this weekend. However, there appears to be a snag as school president Dan Jones and athletic director Pete Boone are both dragging their feet as the former Duck tries to get in before camp.
While we're tramping around the south we cut across to Bama for a quick check into agent-gate 2010. Marcell Dareus had an interesting story involving a receipt and an early departure that, depending on the side you take seems either really convenient or quite believable.
ACC Media Days just wrapped up and the biggest news were the preseason rankings and how, again, VT-FSU are the popular picks. Christian Ponder runs away with the player of the year vote by nearly tripling Ryan Williams 16 votes.
Of course all the news out of the ACC isn't on the field. Florida State linebacker Nigel Carr reminds us that folks in the capital remember how to get in arrested and break things. Multiple felony counts mean that Carr will likely be missing some time for the Noles, a team that already faces some youth issues entering 2010.
On the left coast the coach everyone hates is getting into some trouble regarding his hiring procedure. Jeff Fisher, a proud Trojan grad, is fuming about the way Lane Kiffin hired away Titans running back coach Kennedy Pola to be the USC offensive coordinator. The Nashville group is taking it up a notch by not just publicly speaking out but going legal on all over USC and Kiffin.
On a special note long time friend and old teammate Ryan Baucom and currently made famous by his recent appearance in a TJ Yates joke regarding free golf lessons and NCAA violations is back at it on the course. Played in the US-Am qualifying and shot a 71, at Old Chatham.
