We're back for another episode of the Wednesday afternoon livechat and after last week's fun-fest of NCAA '11 discussion we bring out the heavy hitters for round two. Here at In The Bleachers we'll have The Real PSJ and others dropping knowledge on the information we've seen come to late since our last visit.
This whole fire storm began with twitter so we'll chat a little about players, social media and most importantly what, if anything, should be the solution to the access folks have to these kids lives.
In case you haven't gotten yourself up on the literature make sure you check out Monday's article in the National Football Post by Aaron Wilson highlighting the Marvin Austin situation. This situation has now spread into the SEC as folks at Sakerlina are seeing things heat up in their backyard as well as defending national champion Alabama. All are linked to the same party, however, UNC's Greg Little has been the only one to adamantly speak out against his attendance being financed by anyone but himself.
Folks are rolling over left and right but as the Capstone Report shows, this is far from the "Reggie Bush" type scenario some fans are trumpeting. Nick Saban has his own theories on eliminating this issue which at some point will be blindly supported by people everywhere.
Speaking of Reggie Bush, the first move of newly minted athletic director Pat Haden is to come down hard on the Bush era by "unretiring" the #5 and sending his Heisman Trophy back to the Heisman trust in New York. Folks are split on this decision but we'll give it a go during the live chat because, as you can imagine your's truly is less than thrilled by this move.
Look alive folks as the live chat kicks off at 4:30et and we will also be talking about the madness that is SEC Media Days. Come to ITB for all of your SEC Media needs as our video widget will have all the coverage you craze; stay for a chat where we'll hit on the issues of the week.
