Hawg ball and open line



It's Friday night. Maybe I'll go watch the Nashville Scrappers try to rack up another state high school football championship. (Nope, too lazy.)

Football is on the brain. I just received a fevered e-mail from a Hogville.net reader who says the chatter lately involves a report -- I can't confirm it, or find the reference for that matter --that the UA has dispatched a plane to carry Ole Miss football coach Houston Nutt to NYC for the Heisman trophy ceremony. (Or maybe one of those flight-checker websites shows the UA plane made a stop in Oxford en route to New York.) Nutt's former player, Darren McFadden, is in the running for the award. The correspondent is outraged at a UA charter, if true.

Can't be true, because I found this in a Nate Allen column a week ago.

As Ole Miss coach, Nutt won't accompany the Razorback party on the UA plane to New York, but said, "hopefully I will find my way up there and be able to go up there."

I can take that to the bank, can't I? As reliable as if John White had uttered the words.

One thing is certain: big-shot college football coaches don't fly commercial.

Surely Rainer Sabin will get around to this development while blogging away from New York on his Slophouse blog. He's been with a nervous McFadden this evening. You'll find good stuff there.

MEANWHILE: Call this an open line.
