SKULLDUGGERY AND HEDONISM
Ah, the SEC East has decided not just to treat us to an interesting autumn in 2007; the teams have generously offered to treat us to a fascinating show in the offseason.
For starters, the spelling-challenged Dawgs of Georgia continue their civil disobedience against underage drinking laws, with a backup quarterback and what might be the team's only healthy tight end bravely volunteering for the lastest trip to the hoosegow.
Reserve Georgia quarterback Blake Barnes and tight end James Henry "Tripp" Chandler were arrested early Sunday morning, the former for open container and furnishing alcohol to a minor, the latter for open container and underage possession.
Doesn't take a rocket scientist to connect the dots here.
We must peacefully battle the oppressive open container laws.
Meanwhile, Tennessee might have a problem more closely tied to football. The Wizard raises some questions about whether Vols QB Jonathan Crompton has run afoul of eligibility rules with his endorsement of ... a surgeon. The sophomore, a backup for Erik Ainge, completed 47 percent of his passes with 4 TDs and 2 INTs in 2006.
Of course, if good Erik shows up next season, this won't be a big loss for the Vols. But if evil Erik comes back, there could be trouble. Especially since, last time we checked, Rick Clausen was definitely out of eligibility.
