The week that was: Winners and losers

Here's my overview of the SEC meetings this week, which proved eventful and somewhat contentious.

The winners, in my opinion, of the week that was:

- Mike Slive
- The Georgia-Florida axis
- SEC basketball
- Steve Spurrier
- More cowbell
- Bobby Petrino

And the losers:

- Football coaches in general
- Nick Saban
- Houston Nutt
- Dan Mullen
- Graduate students
- The beach

The story (and here's that link again) has more details on each.

In other news, two things to watch in Georgia sports today:

- The baseball team, which staved off elimination on Saturday, faces Creighton in an elimination game on Sunday at 4 p.m. If the Bulldogs win, they'll face Oregon State at 9 p.m., and a win in that one would force a single game on Monday for the right to advance to the NCAA Super Regionals.

- The Georgia men's golf team is in the NCAA championship match, and faces Augusta State on Sunday. Here's the story on that.

How is Spurrier a winner this week?

If anything he embarrassed himself by trying to justify over-signing because his state produces sub-par students.

Not to mention, his proposal to pay players was a joke as he clearly didn't even do his homework on that issue (e.g. he does not know that the move legally can not be done because of Title IX).

Brian, I explained in the story the reasoning on Spurrier.

Seth, after actually reading your reasoning I stand by my argument.

Your reasoning seems quite indecisive, as in your first sentence you wonder whether or not what Spurrier did was a stunt before proclaiming in sentence number three that it was a stunt.

The only smart thing that he did do was reinstate Garcia the day that the Ohio State stuff first surfaced.

Other than that Spurrier, along with all the pro-over over-signing coaches should be considered losers this week.
