Why was Mark Richt tweeting about the Bachelorette last night?

On July 18, Coral Gables, Fla., wide receiver Shaquery Wilson committed to Georgia. Mark Richt issued the following tweet. It received 227 retweets.

A day later, Jacksonville, Fla., defensive back Deontai Williams committed to Georgia. Richt again tweeted the non-announcement announcement, which was retweeted 351 times.

On Thursday, New Orleans wide receiver Michael Chigbu committed to the Bulldogs. Richt again sent a celebratory tweet, which was retweeted 260 times.

And then there was last night, retweeted 1,248 times and counting. 

What happened? Well, this happened.


For those who can't stomach the nine minutes and 20 seconds of reality television, the man in the above video is Josh Murray - former Georgia safety and brother of recent Bulldogs quarterback Aaron Murray - "winning" the Bachelorette. 

Now, we all know Richt is a guy that can march to the beat of his own drum (see this, and this), and the rest of the Georgia football family rightly ignored the result of a staged reality "competition."

Uh, not exactly.

College football is a strange, silly, and wonderful sport, man.

Video: The Vols created a club atmosphere for the last workout before camp

The last workout before training camp starts up is the culmination of an entire off season of sweat and hard work, and because of that, players should be rewarded justly.

That's exactly what the staff at Tennessee did, creating a club atmosphere for their last lift before the start of training camp complete with strobe lights, a DJ, and a heavy dose of dancing. The new atmosphere even helped a few players ring the "PR Bell".

 Miami did something similar earlier this off season, but I've got to say, Tennessee's set up looks like more fun.

Three and Out: The best recruiting pitch for WR's, why we love Chip Kelly, and here's Peyton Manning dancing

Doug: This has to be the best recruiting pitch in the country for wide receivers:

Zach: In the "I have to work until midnight because if I don't do it then someone else will" world that football coaches live in, it's nice to see a coach admit he fell asleep watching the Combine.

Zach: Here's Peyton Manning to "Rocky Top", apparently performed by Loretta Lynn or one of her contemporaries.

Video: Temple rips out its old lockers for new, and the players flip out

I have seen the Hollman Lockers warehouse first hand, and can attest to the quality and overall bad-assery (if that's not an Oxford dictionary-approved word, it should be) of their product. Whether you're buying for an FBS program or a Class A high school program, Hollman will build you a locker room that is top of the line.

But perhaps nothing can illustrate that point better than watching Temple rip out its old lockers for new ones, and then seeing the look on its players' faces as they get their first look at their new home away from home. The difference is stark.
