Most of us who were among the 18,300 fans and members of the media for Spurrier’s first win at Duke had an inkling he would someday join the coaching elite.
Morris is sucking up hard. I bet Morris was at Woodstock, too.

Aiken Standard: Roland shakes off nerves. Shaq might break out anytime (including this Saturday), but my guess it that it will be the Kentucky game. Check out the little blip in the end about Spurrier and 'that Clemson coach.' "We went 55," Morris said. That's actually a good one, Chad.

ESPN SEC Blog: SEC suspends Trae Elston for Texas game. Ed points out some of the inconsistencies on how the league punishes illegal head shots a la Justice Cunningham in the Vandy game. Ed Aschoff is right. There needs to be consistency in how the rule is applied. If Mike Slive can't force himself to be fair (remember how Nick Fairley speared Aaron Murray in 2010 without any repercussion?) then appoint an ombudsman who can.
NBC College Football Talk: Here is Elston's un-flagged hit. I have two comments. One, while we all love hits like this, knowing what we now know about concussions, they're simply too dangerous. Yes, it's football. But football is going to have to change and this change is currently 5 years in the making, so it's not like it's a surprise to anyone. Two - if Elston is to be suspended, then so should the refs who didn't flag it.
