The Daily Feed: December 10, 2011

It's the Saturday edition of the Daily Feed, folks! Dig in!

Gamecock Football

Spurspective Blog: former Tarheel Randy Jordan, now RB coach at Texas A&M has emerged as a candidate to replace Jay Graham. There has been a lot of chatter about Johnson behind The Big Spur pay wall. Stay tuned for more information!

Hattiesburg American: No news on whether Ellis Johnson will be considered for the Southern Miss vacancy, but the news from Hattiesburg is that the current stepping down and his replacement will be hired this fall. Will that situation be appealing to a veteran coach like Johnson? I wouldn't think so - no new coach wants to be the last A.D.'s hire, even at an attractive position like Southern Miss. I confess I don't like all the chatter without hearing a peep out of Johnson. Is that pre-Bowl discipline? Or a sign he's still mulling things over?

HeraldOnline: Roland keeps up USC trend of landing state's Mr. Football. The streak continues. Roland seems like a very well-spoken, young man..

Orlando Sentinel: Columnist George Diaz writes: 'Gator for Life' Steve Spurrier reinvents himself at South Carolina. The folks in Central Florida apparently cannot get enough Steve Spurrier news. SPOILER! Best line: "He is even leaving his beloved golf clubs at home for the bowl trip."

The Big Spur: Reminiscing : Travian Robertson.

Cornhusker Football

Omaha World-Herald: Hungry Huskers are happy to be hitting again . Huskers feisty and focused despite losing D-coordinator.

Loose Feed

San Antonio Express-News: Friday was a whirlwind day at Texas A&M. The Aggies were interested in Mark Richt, but he declined, so now : A&M to go with Sumlin after Richt declined. Will Sumlin accept even if he was not first choice? One has to think yes - TAMU is too plum a job to pass up in a fit of pique. There was a fascinating unconfirmed rumor from the article: CMR was in College Station on Wednesday evening. If true, that won't make the folks happy in Clarke County.

AJC: Or maybe CMR has been playing a hard game with UGA A.D. Greg McGarity because there have been ongoing contract extensions between the two? "McGarity said Texas A&M athletic director Bill Byrne had not contacted him and would have done so if he were pursuing Richt. 'You don’t waste your time on [rumors] that have no legs,' said McGarity, who added that he has no doubt Richt will be the Bulldogs’ coach next season and beyond."
