Reports: S. Alabama DC bolts for job at UGA


Hey, at least he had been on the job for more than a week.

According to and FootballScoop.comKevin Sherrer has decided to leave South Alabama to take a position on Mark Richt‘s Georgia coaching staff.  When it comes to his duties, the former website writes “Sherrer has not been assigned a title yet… while the Bulldogs wait for the remainder of the defensive staff to be assembled.”

Currently, the Bulldogs have openings for coaches of defensive backs and both inside and outside linebackers.

Sherrer and new UGA defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt have a previous working relationship.  Prior to moving on to the Seminoles for what turned out to be one season, Pruitt was a defensive assistant at Alabama while Sherrer served as the Tide’s director of player development.  Sherrer had replaced, of all people, Pruitt in that role as Pruitt was elevated to secondary coach by Nick Saban.

In January of last year, Sherrer left Alabama to take over as the defensive coordinator and defensive backs coach at South Alabama of the Sun Belt Conference.

Diagnosed with bovine leukemia, Bevo XIV retires immediately

Turns out Steve Spurrier isn’t the only iconic college football figure to retire this week.

Texas announced Tuesday evening Bevo XIV has been diagnosed with bovine leukemia and has been retired to his pasture, effective immediately.

Bevo XIV missed Saturday’s stunning upset of then-No. 10 Oklahoma with what the school called a “life threatening” illness, and rumors circulated around the internet this week he had passed away.

Bevo XIV officially hangs up his horns with a 106-41 record with two national championship appearances.

There is no word at press time on a possible debut of Bevo XV.

Dabo Swinney won’t stop talking about “Clemsoning”

Urban Dictionary defines “Clemsoning” as “the act of an inexplicably disappointing performance, usually within the context of a college football season.”

Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney was asked about the phenomenon following the Tigers’ destruction of Georgia Tech Saturday and promptly went off. The question, asked by ESPN’s David Hale, was in reference to Swinney’s program shaking the label – Saturday marked Clemson’s 34th straight win over an unranked opponent – but Swinney didn’t see it that way.

Armed with some new facts (Clemson SID Tim Bourret noted 50 teams have fallen as ranked opponents to unranked foes since the Tigers last did so on Nov. 19, 2011), Swinney again targeted the “Clemsoning” label.

“I think it’s an agenda. It’s just bias,” Swinney told the Charleston (S.C.) Post & Courier Tuesday. “People are uneducated. They’re just ignorant and lazy because they’re not looking at the facts. If they did, they’d be focused on other schools and not Clemson. They’d be dialed in on what Clemson has done. There aren’t three other schools in the country as consistent as Clemson, in all aspects.”

I hate to break it to you, Dabo: you are absolutely correct, but the term, as they say, has been coined.

Just go beat Florida State, beat South Carolina, win the ACC and win a national title and maybe Urban Dictionary will delete that pesky page out of a sign of respect.

Also, No. 5 Clemson hosts unranked Boston College on Saturday. This would be a very, very unfortunate time for the Tigers to suffer an upset.
