Urban Meyer apparently reads our blog. Meyer and the Gators increased the half game suspension of Brandon Spikes to a full game. Meyer said it was in the team’s best interest that Spikes serve a full game suspension. Of course it is. You should have done it from the get go. You got all this negative attention from practically the entire nation for the idiotic half game suspension. Did you do all this for attention? Was it because you thought the refs missed a late hit on Tebow? Honestly Urban, what were you thinking when you suspended him for half a game? “Hmm, Spikes tried to rip out the eyes of a Georgia player, I hate Georgia for what they did in 07 but I gotta take some action. Yeah half a game ought to do it.” Yeah Urban, you’re a smart one. You said it in your book that what UGA did in 07 will forever be in the hearts and minds of the gator nation and Urban Meyer. Good job on referring to yourself in third person. It’s your own book. Come on man. We get it, you hate us here. But we hate you too. That’s College Football in the South for you. Here’s hoping you leave UF for Notre Dame next year. Cause I’ll be real here, you’re a great coach. You win. But what you did this week was just plain stupid.
In other College Football news, Boise State has hired a Public Relations firm to boost its chances for a BCS bowl. Scott Peyron & Associates job is to keep Boise State on the minds of the media. Boise State is doing this because of their crazy BCS bowl game against Oklahoma in 2007. They don’t want people thinking this was a fluke. To me, this is a smart move. You want attention, you want to be in a BCS bowl every year just like every other team. Do everything you can to achieve that. But until you start scheduling harder non conference games it doesn’t matter what PR firm you hire. It could be the best in the world, but it won’t matter until you play against tougher opponents. Which it looks like they are trying to start doing. They began this year by beating a then shaky Oregon team at home. Oregon has since come on strong and is poised to win the Pac-10 this year. That win against Oregon is making Boise State look all the better. Don’t get me wrong, Boise State is a solid team. But you’ve got to play more than one tough team a year. Next year you’ve scheduled Virginia Tech. Good for you, they’re a solid team. If you beat them then people will begin to think you’re legit. You have a great quarterback and a great team. But schedule more than one tough team and win out, then people will know you’re legit.
