Morning Six Pack: May 8, 2013

Humpin’ right along with six fresh college football stories from around the country, with an SEC flair.

Wyoming's new football field: Now with 100 percent more mountains

Cool! Mountains in the end zone.

'We've got the best fans in college football'

For first-year coach Gus Malzahn, though, tonight was an opportunity to meet with fans and either sign autographs until the Sharpie ran dry or his hand developed cramps.

Be Careful With USA Today's College Finances Database

The USA Today has done the annual update to its database of college athletics financials. It now contains information from the 2011-12 school year.

UGA's Mark Richt has delivered on 'best is yet to come' promise

It was somewhat brash for a Southeastern Conference football coach, and it was completely out of character for Georgia's Mark Richt.

Muschamp praises Polk players

Florida football coach Will Muschamp put Lakeland Dreadnaughts head coach Bill Castle on notice during his speech to more than 450 Gator fans on Tuesday night at the Lake Mirror Center.

"It depends on who you want to listen to," Stoops told the Tulsa World. "Listen, they've had the best team in college football, meaning they've won the national championship. That doesn't mean everything else is always the best.

"So you're listening to a lot of propaganda that gets fed out to you. You're more than smart enough to figure it out. Again, you can look at the top two, three, four, five, six teams, and you can look at the bottom six, seven, eight, whatever they are. How well are they all doing?

"What'd we (the Big 12) have, eight of 10 teams in bowl games this year? Again, you figure it all out."

I find it interesting that there's no mention in the Malzahn in Huntsville story that the Crimson Caravan was in Huntsville the same day. Suppose this is another of the wiseasses at the AU pubic relations department pulling another TJ Yeldon speech? It's definitely not a coincidence that both of these coaches were in the same city the same day - is the Gus Bus following the Caravan around? Talk about your stalkers.
