More reader questions on a warm Friday.

Where did you book your hotel for BCS championship weekend in Miami 2013? I’m thinking Delano myself…

A: I usually like to wait one game before I book my BCS hotel.

Q: gotroy22 said:
How would you compare Dion Bailey to Groots? Is Bailey’s fate similar to Groots- a great although undersized college LB but no NFL career?

A: I’ve often said Matt Grootegoed was one of the best linebackers I covered and I would probably place him in the top two with Chris Claiborne based on performance. So it’s a little early for Bailey on that comparison. However, I do think Bailey does have NFL potential. It might be at safety. But he is athletic enough to play in the NFL.

Q: SCFTBL1 said:
WHICH PLAYERS WILL NOT BE PARTICIPATING IN SPRING PRACTICE BECAUSE OF INJURY OR GRADES?

A: Thank you for asking in all caps. I think Robert Woods will be limited because of his ankle surgery. George Farmer still might be able to play because I hear his academic status might be upgraded. I’m not sure if Jesse Scroggins will get to play because he needs to concentrate on his academics to be eligible next year.

    @Monopoly…much like your love life…your assumptions appear to be a bit PREMATURE! Perhaps something up near Orlando would work for you…say Fantasyland at Disney World?

    From what I’ve heard, a player can participate in spring ball if they are academically ineligible, but must have this cleared up to be eligible for the season.

    If being delusional were a sport, UCLA would might actually be relevant.

    If Dion Bailey has Matt Grootegoed’s field intelligence, we are in good shape at that position. Matt never made the same mistake twice. He wasn’t the fastest player on the field, but that didn’t matter when he & Lofa were in that defensive backfield. Not many ball carriers got past them. I wish there was a way Kiffin could get a Matt Grootegoed type on his coaching staff.

    “Thank you for asking in all caps.” You weren’t by any chance being sarcastic, were you there Wolfie?

    My only concern in Miami is that Bucket might follow the #USCGANG there to try to swagger jack us. Though he’ll prob be handing out more in those establishments with them rainbow flags out front…

    i have authored several treatises on the queer proclivities of individuals who post homophobic rants.

    but back to wolfman’s sweeeet respose…i think the wolfman is acknowledging that the odd are Southern Cal will choke far before they come close to the BCS Chanpeenship game!!!

    but wouldn’t it be sugar sveeeet to see Shouldda Couldda U play LSU or Alabama in the Champeenship game??? i gotta reckon the result would be yet another BLOWN BCS Champeenship!!!

    AUUUUUU-WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
