Bizarre football news of the day

Since when do college football players issue press releases? More eye-popping:

Even after missing two games, Hardy still leads the Southeastern Conference in tackles for a loss per game and sacks.

That may say more about the general suckitude of SEC defenses this year than Greg Hardy’s talent, but following in the footsteps of a legend like Patrick Willis as a freshman is hardly a small feat either.

The SEC is pretty wacky this year to begin with, considering the consensus best team in the league, LSU, keeps squeaking by teams it has no apparent business beating based on the team’s on-field performance. (At least the paper tigers in other conferences which have flirted with the top of the rankings have been exposed, from Boston College to South Florida.) And I don’t even pretend to comprehend what’s going on in Lexington and (gasp) Starkville.

Wow. Maybe Greg has gotten his head out of his ass a bit earlier than I thought it would happen. I was figuring he’d be reinstated before next season; he’d have a great junior year, and go on to make millions in the NFL.

O thinks next year’s D-Line will be better than anything he ever coached at USC. Hard to argue with him: Hardy, Powe, Peria Jerry, Tillman…

Also, look for Jevan Snead to “spread” things out a bit next year…
