• Well played, Hairy Dawg. Well played. Are we tiring of this meme in record time? Yes. Did Georgia’s football team have a lot of ground to make up to even come close to the greatness of UGA’s swim team video? Absolutely.
Did the Dawgs earn a place in the pantheon for including a scooter in their video? You bet your sweet underbelly lying on a bag of ice in August they did. (We assume overenthusiastic Athens cops swarmed the mascot just after the camera cut off.)
• TRIAL OF THE MILLENIUM, INCOMING. Harvey Updyke’s bond has been revoked; an April trial date has been set, and wherever it ends up taking place, we promise you now that we will be there covering the thing like a plucky character in a Harper Lee novel.
• Hey, neato, more subjectivity on refs’ shoulders! No way this ends poorly, right?

(We’ve had MOBY DICK 2010 for 19 weeks. One sympathizes.)
• Schedule matters. All your Big 12 spring football dates in one handy document, right this way.
