Mid-Week Trough

I’m on vacation so I’ve sorta neglected the ole’ blog. So, this will be a big one…

Charles Thomas, Sonny Weems, Patrick Beverley, and Steven Hill were named to the Coaches All-SEC teams on Wednesday. The possible QB controversy I mentioned this weekend…it’s not happening. AS360 profiles Chuck Barrett. A recruiting breakdown for Nutt from ’03 to ’07. Over the Summer Patrick Beverley has changed his look and his game. Weston Dacus didn’t practice Wednesday, he needed the rest. Most have heard by now that Ben Cleveland wasn’t allowed on the sideline for Saturday’s Game…Here’s the story. Jillian Rosen, of the #10 Ladyback Cross Country team, was named SEC Freshman of the Year.

FTB:Rumors abound

Robert Sheilds weekly column has this tidbit…

Now, if I was an AD and was being shown the door but was still going to be hanging around, I would want to keep in place as many people as possible that were friendly to me. Also, all these multi-year contracts for assistants make it all the more difficult to show Nutt the door this year because it is my understanding all these contracts are guaranteed. It will cost the University a tidy sum of money to pay off all these assistants and the head coach. I do not believe in the past position coaches received multi year guaranteed contracts.


Sunday Trough

As Others have pointed out, If Pelphrey continues to do things like playing in the red white game, and hitting threes, He’ll find himself firmly planted in the hearts of all hog fans. Red 84 White 78. Fox Sports has the Hoop Hogs at #15 in their rankings. FIU post game Notes & Quotes. The Expats Name the Hogs 2007 Sun Belt Champs. Here’s more on Monk and Emert’s performances. Here’s The Morning News’ Game Replay. Political columnist John Brummett responds to the critics of his “Fire Nutt” column I linked to a week or so ago. The Cross Country Hogs win their 34th straight conference (17th straight SEC) title. Finally, a Razorback duo is playing for the ITA doubles title in Tulsa today.

Friday Trough

Here’s the Whole Hog Sports story on the Track and Field Team losing 2 National Titles and the NCAA’s statement. The Messages aren’t flying for the Hogs (story I mentioned in the FYI post). The red-white basketball game is tonight. Patrick Beverley has been Named to the Naismith Trophy Pre-Season Watch List. Clay Henry has a Basketball season preview. the AP has a FIU preview up. The Expats have a basketball hodge-podge up and a book review as well. AS360 mentions that the South Carolina game will be televised. Matt Jones is having a weird year in Jacksonville.

FYI on Banners

I just wanted to make sure that everyone knows that I don’t have an opinion on the people who fly the banners. Well, to be honest I do but I won’t be making my feelings public. I publish the emails that Reganite sends me so you, the audience, can see his side of the story and to help you generate an informed opinion. Again the one thing I will say is that everyone has a right to their opinion and the right to state that opinion. That doesn’t mean I agree or disagree with him. I’m just allowing him to use this site as a bullhorn. If I get a story from the players or coaches point of view, I’m just as likely to run with that as well. In fact there is a story on Whole Hog Sports that quotes David Lee and Weston Dacus on this subject that will be linked to when I post the next Trough.

Go Hogs!
