Today’s Chorus is brought to you by Brooklyn Decker, anonymous North Carolina fan and actress(ish) in a new movie called Battleship. Based on Battleship the board game. I blame everyone but her for how horrible it’ll be. ***** • Butch Davis is out at North Carolina. Not totally unexpected, but the timing is such that UNC must REALLY not want anything to do with him.

Last Wednesday, I brought my camera to the Elite 11 QB camp finals in Malibu, CA. As it turns out, the event was basically just a really excited Trent Dilfer (and staff) coaching a football camp, so I decided to spice it up a bit.

Today’s Chorus is brought to you by former Virginia Hoo (attendee), Talladega Nights actress, and all-around good looking person Leslie Bibb. ***** • Ohio State apparently did NOT fail to monitor their student-athletes. CBS’s Bryan Fischer is STEAMED. • Tennessee has recommended two years of probation for its crimes against NCAA humanity under former basketball coach Bruce Pearl and former football coach Lane Kiffin.
