John Chavis suing LSU AND Texas A&M, LSU sues back

Surely, this must be the weirdest story out there today. Texas A&M DC John Chavis is suing former employer LSU as well as his current employer Texas A&M over this new contract. Chavis, who left LSU at the end of the season for College Station, where he replaced much harangued/awful defensive co-ordinator Mark Snyder, is suing LSU because the Baton Rouge school has asked Chavis for $400,000 which he claims he does not owe. According to College Station TV station KBIX's website, John Chavis was given the right to terminate his employment agreement with the Tigers "without cause with Read more [...]
I've been looking at this for a while now, and I still can't understand why LSU was hit with recruiting violations fines by the SEC. According to the SEC, LSU prospect Matt Womack signed a financial aid agreement with the Tigers, only to back out of the deal, de-commit, and go to Alabama instead. Because there had been an arrangement where recruits who signed a financial aid agreement with a school could be contacted by that school on an unlimited fashion (yeah, we're confused right here!), LSU obviously contacted Womack heavily....and now he's gone to Tuscaloosa, the SEC found that that Read more [...]
The NCAA said today that Florida had been investigated for a recruiting violation involving former wide receivers coach Joker Phillips, but would not face sanctions. Although the NCAA did not mention Phillips, it did note that a 'former Florida assistant coach' visited a Florida prospect off-campus before the NCAA rules allowed for contact, adding that the Gators had suspended the assistant coach in question (Phillips resigned in June, incidentally), and that the "corrective actions and penalties self-imposed by the school were appropriate and assigned no additional penalties or measures." The Read more [...]

Georgia, UNC to meet in 2016 Kick-Off Classic

Georgia and UNC are to meet in the 2016 Kick-Off Classic at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. Obviously, it's great news for the Dawgs for what will effectively be another home game, but it also does both parties' strength-of-schedules of a favor as they go for a College Football Play-Off spot. The game will be played September 3rd, 2016 in the Georgia Dome. This year's Kick-Off Classic will feature Auburn and Louisville, which promises to be low on defense and heavy on points. The last time both sides got together was 1971, with Georgia winning 7-3 in Jacksonville. Georgia's on a four-game Read more [...]

LSU grabs Georgia WR coach

LSU has nabbed Georgia wide receivers coach Tony Ball, the school confirmed in a statement. Ball had spent nine years at Georgia as running backs coach then wide receivers coach, and will take on one of the best wide receiving corps in the nation. Ball comes in after LSU lost Adam Henry - the former player in that position - to the San Francisco 49ers. Henry coached Odell Beckham Jr and Jarvis Landry, who have both made excellent NFL rookies. Unfortunately for LSU, one of the best wide receiving corps in the country came last season with two awful quarterbacks in Anthony Jennings and Brandon Read more [...]

Roquan Smith commits to UGA

Roquan Smith has committed to being a Georgia Bulldog. The Macon, GA linebacker had said that he was going to be going to UCLA at National Signing Day, but after the Pac-12 team's defensive coordinator, Jeff Ulbrich, had lied to him about taking the Atlanta Falcons DC's job, he decided to revisit his options. He re-opened his commitments, looking at Georgia, UCLA, Michigan and Texas A&M, but eventually opted to play in the SEC. "As you could imagine it's been tough lately," he told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in a statement. "But I am relieved to say that I am officially committed Read more [...]

Why the SEC Network should make SEC Films

After the news of the tragic but long-awaited death of NFL Films’ creator Ed Sabol, we got thinking: We need SEC Films for the Southeastern Conference, ESPN. Our stadiums are rammed every week with fanbases that sweat passion out of every orifice. We shake our shakers, scream our songs, and love our Tigers, Eagles, Bulldogs and Gators. Our players are the best of the best. They would fly around the screen, either in offense and defense. And you know what? An awful lot of defensive players are going pro in something that’s called football. Our numbers of players going to the NFL are out Read more [...]

LSU loses WRs coach to 49ers

LSU's wide receivers coach Adam Henry has decided to return to the NFL, taking a job with the San Francisco 49ers as the team's wide receivers coach. Henry was in the job for two years after moving to Baton Rouge for five years with the Oakland Raiders, where he was offensive quality control coach and then tight ends coach. Under his watch, Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry were major difference-makers for the LSU and then in their rookie years in the NFL with the New York Giants and Miami Dolphins. This is the latest coach to leave Les Miles this off-season after the LSU head coach lost Read more [...]

Arkansas loses RB coach to New Orleans Saints

Arkansas has lost its running backs coach Joel Thomas to the New Orleans Saints, it has been reported.
