Crossing the Atlantic: Georgia Tech fallout, Al Golden, Maryand, and more.

(Crossing the Atlantic is a look at the ACC and other schools on the East Coast.)     COASTAL DIVISION "Georgia Tech made its own mess." Because Jeff Schultz said so. Shut up, Jeff.

Despite being new on the job, Miami head football coach Al Golden is winning accolades in his recruiting of Miami-area prospects.

Georgia Tech is an ex-2009 ACC Conference Champion.

Georgia Tech is an ex-2009 ACC Conference Champion.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on July 15, 2011

The news that Georgia Tech would have to vacate its 2009 ACC conference title came out of left field today. It came as the result an NCAA investigation of the alleged gift of $312 worth of gifts to former Tech wide receiver Demaryius Thomas. How did something like this stay under the radar? Blame the SEC. "For one thing, the priority of the Atlanta media will always be on SEC schools over ACC schools, even when we're talking about in-state institutions. That's just the way it is, based on audience interest. But various independent media outlets do cover Tech sports and Tech sports alone, and several national publications have dedicated writers who cover the entire conference."  Of course the other reason would be that the Atlanta media are a bunch of goobers (mostly). The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is a shadow of what is was during the days of Lewis Grizzard (and it wasn't actually The New York Times back then). And AJC columnist Mark Bradley has apparently spent most of his time working on his personal vendetta against former GTmen's basketball coach Paul Hewitt. In other words, the ATL media dropped the ball. (via Atlanta Journal-Constitution, SB Nation) Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles

Pelini going Pelini. Score one for  Bo Pelini in the dubious achievement category. The fiery-tempered  Nebraska head football coach has become a form or rage worthy enough for an Urban Dictionary entry. .) 1. Pelini - A violent rage that cannot be controlled, often expressed in Tourette's-like cursing accompanied with demonic facial contortions. An angry sense of entitlement that will cause you to treat anyone around you with contempt and physical brutality, including game officials, innocent cameramen or possibly your own team. Yo--I said I wanted those eggs over medium, I'm about to go Pelini up in here!!!! @#$%$$%!!!!!! And no, that's not "Urban Dictionary" as in "Urban Meyer," if you didn't know already.  (If you didn't, welcome to the future!) though the entry for his is quite interesting in its own right.

McCarron are not on the list of players headed to Birmingham. Are their respected schools trying to shield them from the inevitable media questions about their respected tattoos, perhaps. Also conspicuous by his absence is South Carolina QB Stephen Garcia. Steve Spurrier obviously doesn't trust Garcia enough yet to let him spend a few nights in an out-of-state hotel room yet.

UT-Arlington may join the WAC, whether other WAC schools like it or not.

UT-Arlington may join the WAC, whether other WAC schools like it or not.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on July 12, 2011

The University of Texas at Arlington, which doesn't have a football program, may become the newest member of the WAC. At least one WAC member's athletic director, Bruce Dan De Velde of Louisiana Tech, isn't too happy with the possible arrangement. "We weren't as enthusiastic (about it) as some of the other schools," Louisiana Tech athletic director Bruce Van De Velde said. "We felt they should have added a football-playing school and we encouraged them to do so. We feel they should be looking to add a team in the Central time zone if Louisiana Tech is to remain in the WAC. "The face of the WAC is changing with three teams now in the CST. And we think football should be the priority in adding schools." Obviously, WAC member schools would rather have schools with football teams in the conference. Especially since the Mountain West Conference has raided it within an inch of its life, taking crown jewel Boise State, this season, and Fresno State, Nevada, and Hawaii in 2012. It probably wouldn't take much for Louisiana Tech to look for greener pastures. Especially if a conference looking to become a BCS school with an automatic bid (i.e.: The MWC), or looking to preserve its BCS Conference standings (i.e.: The Big East) comes a calling.

The people who run the Mississippi State University Alumni Association's website apparently have a lot of time on their hands. That would explain why they keep track of how many affinity license plates that Magnolia State citizens are putting on their vehicles, as compared to those with Ole Miss plates. According to the numbers, Mississippi St. is beating 15,497 to 13,983. While keeping track of such numbers does seem a little petty, remember that a portion of the fees for these plates go back to the schools.
