Today’s Chorus is brought to you by UC Riverside alum and Hangover Part 2 actress Jamie Chung. Chung is attractive and UCR is known has the Highlanders and their bear mascot has a half blue face to honor William Wallace. No part of that sentence was invented in any way.
• Former Ohio State WR Ray Small sold his Buckeye memorabilia while still enrolled and on the team. I just hope Jim Tressel doesn’t fire E. Gordon Gee. ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg puts it into context.
• USC‘s appeal of the NCAA‘s 2010 decision was straight Mutumbo’d. Remember USC’s 2004 BCS title? Wrong, you don’t.
• Is the Big East expanding? Could they add another school in Texas or the service academies? Find out next time on “Maybe?”!!
• SI.com’s Stewart Mandel explains why Alabama is his preseason #1. He surmises that their outstanding good players will impact their fortunes.
• West Virginia OC Dana Holgorsen and WVU AD Oliver Luck agreed that Holgorsen’s mystery actions were “inappropriate.” Stop with the teasing already, Morgantown.
• Georgia coach Mark Richt appears to be selling his lake house because he’s a charitable human being. I’m ok with this.
• LSU is “oozing” with talent. DC John Chavis illustrates this, um, accurately in the attached photo.
• ESPN’s Edward Aschoff addresses SEC QB battles. Apparently, nobody knows who’s going to throw for a crapload of INTs in Oxford yet.
• Fox Sports, with an assist from a photo gallery of ACC cheerleaders, profiles new Clemson QB Tajh Boyd, Boyd, by all accounts, had a mostly horrific spring, though it’s oddly not mentioned here at all. But the cheerleaders definitely are.
• Football Study Hall has your stinkin’ numbers right here, UCLA. And they really are quite stinkin’.
• A high school freshman has eight major verbal scholarship offers. This can only end well.
• Indiana football is going to be different this time. Honest.
Today’s Video of the Day is a clip from last night’s amazing NCAA South Park (via EDSBS).
