I do hear there's a pretty good market these days for midget wideouts who run 4.8 40's.
Side note: David Greene ran a 4.74 at the 2005 combine, so I guess the Seahawks don't need to worry about replacing Darrell Jackson after all.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Suzanne Yoculan and the Georgia Gym Dogs, on behalf of America (or at least the Southeast), for what they did this weekend. Not only did they win their third (!) consecutive national title, but they also prevented Florida from winning yet another championship in the process.
Had the Gators secured yet another national title on Friday night, we surely would've heard all about it on Sportscenter: "Hey, did you hear Florida won ANOTHER championship over the weekend? Are you sure Ohio State didn't make the Super Six? LOLOL" But the Gym Dogs won't get any national publicity of note, even as they continue to dominate their sport in a way few programs have ever done. Three straight national championships without any seniors competing at any of the final meets. Unbelievable.

As Georgia's baseball team flounders, BC is coming on strong. The baseball team started slow and has faced injuries throughout the year. Yesterday, the Cadets handed Calvary Day School their 2nd loss of the year taking the contest 3-0. This coming just a week after a 12-2 victory over region leading South Effingham. The good play has put BC back in the playoff picture. With a win against Burke County this Friday, the Cadets will qualify for the region playoffs and a chance to advance to the state playoffs.
The Golf team will compete at the Region tournament today. BC has had a great year to this point including team victories at the City Championship, Savannah Christian Invitational, and numerous head-to-head matches.
The tennis team travels to Lagrange tomorrow to compete in the 1st round of the State tournament after finishing 3rd in Region 3-AAA and a 2nd place finish at the Coastal Empire Tournament.
The region track qualifying meet is Friday and BC has seen a revitalization of sorts from the track team. With a solid 4x100 team, good distance running, and good performances in the jumping events, the track team has found some measurable success.

Though the baseball team will basically have to win about 10 of their last 15 SEC games to make the SEC Tournament, they would still have to win the tourney to get into the NCAA's. However, other things to look forward to include:
May 4th, David Price of Vanderbilt will pitch against Georgia in Athens. There's a great chance he will find himself on a Major League roster by the end of the year.
BC plays Calvary in baseball on Monday for those in Savannah.
Athens twilight rolls into town. Always a good time.
Two of the top 5 days of the year come back-to-back. May 17th and 18th.

Just to emphasis the extent of what we are expecting, late last week I received a phone call from a Jeremy Thompson in Atlanta of whom I havent spoken to since around Christmas asking if what he heard was correct. I confirmed his queries and requested that he get a four member team ready for the weekend. On top of that, I haven't gone to a class since last Tuesday without inviting at least one person to stop by on Saturday. Whether or not they show is a different question, but shit who cares.
Things to look for on saturday:
- Anywhere between 80 to 150 people including probably around 5-10 with badges, handcuffs and guns (they might show up late)
- 8-12 kegs
- 2-6 fights, probably one being between donnie in leighton, kyle and leighton, and leighton and stephanie.
The Savannah Morning News editorial page had a good opinion piece on the Lamar Owens situation a while back, so you may have seen it already. But it's new to me.
"Where does a young man go to recover his reputation? If anyone has a clue, call Lamar Owens at the U.S. Naval Academy.
His future is riding on it."
"The jury found Owens guilty of conduct unbecoming an officer, but declined to impose any punishment for it. That's the military justice system's equivalent of a wrist slap.
It said Owens did wrong - and there's no question he did - but that his mistake shouldn't cost him his career.
And that seemed fair. Even the higher ups at the Naval Sea System Command, which oversees the Washington Navy Yard where Owens had been assigned to administrative duty, agreed.
But then Vice Adm. Rodney Rempt, the Naval Academy's superintendent, delivered a blind-side tackle last week."
"Let's hope Savannah's two congressmen, Jack Kingston and John Barrow, join in.
Owens and his family back home in Savannah paid a steep price when the young man was accused of rape. He shouldn't keep paying for a crime that a jury said he didn't commit. But if that's the Navy's way, then two words apply: Go. Army."

Monday: Atlanta Braves Season Opener; NCAA Basketball National Championship Game
Tuesday: Clemson @ Georgia Baseball
Wednesday: Georgia @ Clemson Baseball
Thursday: First Round of The Masters ; Savannah Sand Gnats Home Opener
Friday: The Masters ; Braves Home Opener
Saturday: The Masters ; G-Day
Sunday: Masters Sunday
- WWE World Title Match: John Cena vs. Shawn Michaels
My prediction: HBK wins. I hate John Cena because he's an Eminem wannabe.
- WWE World Heavyweight Title Match: Batista vs. The Undertaker
My prediction: Taker's never lost at Wrestlemania and I don't think Batista is going to break his undefeated streak.
- Battle of the Billionaires: Umaga w/ Vince McMahon vs. Bobby Lashley w/ Donald Trump
My prediction: Lashley wins because there's no way Trump is going to get his head shaved. However that would be the ULTIMATE Vinnie Mac screwjob.
- Money in the Bank Ladder Match - Edge, Randy Orton, Finlay, Booker, CM Punk, Matt Hardy, Jeff Hardy, Kennedy
My prediction: Edge wins because he's the top heel at the moment and Orton's in the WWE doghouse with the steroid story in Sports Illustrated.
- ECW Originals vs. The New Breed - Tommy Dreamer, Sabu, RVD, Sandman vs. Matt Striker, Marcus cor Von, Kevin Thorn, Elijah Burke
My prediction: I have no idea who any of these people are except for RVD because I don't watch ECW but I'll take the New Breed because I'm not a big RVD fan either.
- WWE Women's Title Lumberjill Match: Melina vs. Ashley Massaro
My prediction: Don't really care but I think Ashley will win because she's getting a lot of attention now with her recent Playboy spread.
- Kane vs. The Great Khali
My prediction: Great Khali wins a terrible match because I read Kane is suppose to be taking some time off after Wrestlemania to heal up.
- WWE U.S. Title Match: Chris Benoit vs. MVP
My prediction: Benoit wins and the fact that MVP is a part of Wrestlemania and Flair and Carlito aren't makes me want to throw up.
