Oh, the drama of signing day

February 5, 2013

It's signing day eve.  Take a look at this quick snapshot of what to expect for tomorrow:  

  • DE Davin Ballemy, a 6-foot-5, 240-pound defensive from Chamblee High School, will announce at 11 a.m. Wednesday whether he will sign with UGA.  He drew attention with a recent tweet that said, "I'm ready.  I know where I want to spend my next 4 years now."  
  • Cornelius Elder is the 4-star athlete from Nashville, Tennessee.  The AJC reports that he will not announce on signing day.  Perdue recently gave him a basketball offer.  Georgia Tech, Ohio State, Auburn, and UCLA all presented him football offers. 
  • Tolando Cleveland is a defensive line back from Hillgrove High School.  He switched from Georgia Tech to Mississippi State last Thursday.  He said, "I had a change of heart, and a lot of it had to do with Coach Kelly leaving."   Charles Kelly was formerly the Georgia Tech DB coach.  Last month he left and is now Florida's LB coach.  "I told them my reasoning and they respected my decision.  It was a tough conversation.  But I had to do what I had to do."  

What are your predictions for signing day? 

Do you foresee any surprises tomorrow?

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
