Monday offseason one-liners

Happy Monday, everyone. Some news and notes from around college football…

– Zach Mettenberger appears to have the quarterback job all but officially locked down at LSU, but who’s behind him?

– A Phoenix area officer also accepted free tickets from the Fiesta Bowl, a violation department directives to follow city policy.

– The Orlando Sentinel gets you up to speed on Florida State this spring.

– Admit it. You want to see Steve Spurrier shirtless. Or, “topless” as he puts it. (Warning: images are disturbing)

Businessofcollegesports.com revisits their annual report on athletic department profit. Here are reports on the Big 12, ACC and Big Ten.

– Keeping with the March Madness theme, the Big Ten Network polls fans on favorite uniforms. First round surprise? Illinois’ unis upset Ohio State. Bucking tradition, I see.

– Speaking of the Buckeyes, Urban Meyer chatted with the Deseret News about his time at Utah.

Travis Sawchik of the Charleston Post and Courier thinks the SEC could ink a $5 billion TV deal when it renegotiates its contracts with media partners.  That’s a lot, but when you think about the product vs. the bar that’s been set, it’s not completely out of the question.

– Not directly college football related, but Jeff Schultz of the Atlanta Journal Constitution writes a great piece on his relationship with the late Furman Bisher, a great sports writer who passed away over the weekend at the age of 93.

    And one more fun story from Monday … Tim Tebow still sucks, and the Broncos decided to finally hire a real quarterback, instead of an overrated sanctimonious flop.

    Glad that somebody can finally see some of Zack’s talent sides me. But seriously, the kid does have talent and definitely will be a gun out there. Just hope he gets to showcase his arm more than a few downs.

    suprmous,

    Don’t worry about that. People forget what Matt Flynn did his senior year under Miles – and he has erroneously been labeled a “game manager”. He threw for a ton of yards. Miles will let a QB he trusts throw the ball, unfortunately we just haven’t had one in a few years.
