Tuesday Links (11/24)

I had a mailbag all set for this morning before my computer crashed and I lost it all. Before that happened, I also deleted the original questions myself, so I'm at a loss for even attempting to reproduce it. But fear not... if you've had a question or complaint or comment that you missed out on getting a reply for, you can still pass along your thoughts in our weekly chat.

Of course, we usually do those chats on Thursdays, but this week, that isn't going to happen. So the plan is to hold a chat tomorrow (Wednesday) at 1 p.m. I'm still working on getting the chat session set up for you to post your questions, but I'll let you know as soon as it's live.

In the meantime, some links for today...

-- I have a story in today's Telegraph on how last year's Georgia Tech game has influenced Reshad Jones ever since.

-- The Senator uses Mike Bobo's quote about Joe Cox as the jumping off point for one important key to this week's game. He's right, and no one seems to be trying to hide. The players I talked to yesterday were pretty open in saying that there are a lot of guys pretty down this week. That's a first for this season.

-- It was a slow night on the Bulldog Hotline, but Jim from Duluth has the gory details.

-- Damon Evans nixes the idea of uniform gimmicks for the foreseeable future.

-- Tony Barnhart says Les Miles could be on the hot seat and says Mark Richt has some tough times ahead.

-- Patrick Garbin puts the blame for Saturday's debacle squarely on the coaches.

-- Chris Low echoes much of the criticism, saying it is incumbent upon Richt to take a long, hard look at where his program is headed.

-- Bleacher Report says Mark Richt shouldn't be fired.

-- Bleacher Report says Mark Richt should be fired.

-- Dawg Sports attempts a defense of the Georgia coaching staff.

-- Adam Krohn gets to do some serious bragging at this point and Mike in Valdosta is forced to admit he was wrong.

-- Paul Johnson is full of backhanded compliments for Georgia.

-- Knowshon Moreno fighting on the sidelines with teammates? Yikes. Things must be bad in Denver. (BTW, as a Knowshon fantasy owner, I'm baffled by all the fumbles this season.)

-- David Ching writes about the new healthier version of Jeremy Price.

-- Some Kentucky fans spent a few hours trashing the Georgia campus before Saturday's game. I blame the long lines at The Grill. If you make the prompt transition from whiskey to grease at 2 a.m., you don't have these types of problems. But that long wait.... it gives old Jack Daniels too much time to talk you into bad decisions.

-- Janzen Jackson is cleared in the stick-em-up case in Knoxville.

-- Matt Hayes is starting to buy into the conspiracy theories on the SEC officiating.

-- We've all talked about doing it. One man had the courage to follow through. (Kidding, of course. Probably.)

-- Chris Elliott talks to TV Guide about his guest role on last night's Slapsgiving episode of "How I Met Your Mother," which was OK but didn't approach the hilarity of the original Slapsgiving. (Although the commercial for the Slap Bet board game at the end was perhaps the second best moment of the season after Moustache Marshall.)

-- "Friday Night Lights" without Riggins? Noooooooo!

-- Apparently "The Daily Show" is a little too subtle in its humor for the comedy-impared folks in Iran.

-- Ten years after its release, The Huffington Post looks at the impact of "Fight Club."

-- A history of waffles. This is just one of those articles everyone needs to read.

-- I'm not sure what the most amusing part of this story is, but it does a nice job of illustrating how ridiculous Facebook is, how ridiculous the insurance industry is and, most of all, how ridiculous Canada is.

-- Some folks loved the season finale of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and some people didn't.

-- "Flash Forward" is taking a timeout to regroup.

-- And finally, I defy Rachel Ray or Martha Stewart to take a ham to the face like Paula Deen does. Spending time in Albany really toughens you up for things like that.

David, is there any way you could bring up the point the Senator pointed out on his blog recently about Cox's footwork tipping off opponents to the coaches? I just don't know how else to get that to them. If we, as fans, can see this (and confirm it in numerous game film examples from this season) it can't have slipped past other defensive coordinators.

I'd, along with a lot of other fans, appreciate it.

So Damon says we'll only wear silver britches in the forseeable future. We haven't worn silver britches in years. They're grey, and in the wrong light, white. Thanks Nike.

Is there a bigger douchebag in the world of sports journalism (I might give you Jeremy Schapp) than Adam Krohn? Every article I've read of his looks like it came straight from a Georgia Tech message board.

I agree, Anon 1:44. It would be nice to have true silver. At least, though, we don't have massive and obvious color scheme issues like the "asthetes" involved with that old gold problem--a color that seems to change completely every four years or so.

Fisheries -- I think the only time I've ever truly like Bobby Knight is when he called out Jeremy Schapp for not being as good as his dad. Classic moment.

I can't believe none of those Kentucky fans was cited for Misuse of Scooter, Invalid License, Not Looking Both Ways Before Exiting an Alley or Athlete Operating a Vehicle. Those seem to be the focus of ACC-PD.
