Tuesday Morning Update

Spanning the globe on a Tuesday morning …

Alabama kicker Cade Foster isn’t the only college football player receiving grief from his fan base for his performance in the rivalry game.

Ole Miss quarterback Bo Wallace has gotten his share, and Monday freshman wide receiver Quincy Adeboyejo had this to say.

If the Rebels do find their way to Nashville for the Music City Bowl, a possible opponent would be Georgia Tech.

Ed Orgeron’s run as USC coach officially came to an end Monday afternoon. This from the LA Times.

Not everyone is celebrating Steve Sarkisian’s new job as head coach at Southern Cal.

This from a freshman QB at Washington:

Williams, by the way, is a Los Angeles native, an honorable mention Parade All-American who was named “back of the year” in LA by The TImes. …

Apparently Orgeron also was not in a celebratory mood. ESPN’s Brett McMurphy described Ed as “outraged” as he resigned from USC.

Soon after news of Orgeron’s resignation broke there was Twitter traffic out of Louisiana calling for Les Miles to create space on his staff to add Orgeron and help with recruiting.

I don’t see that opening at LSU, but it would be interesting and not good for Ole Miss and other schools to have Orgeron recruiting in the SEC again.

Speaking of LSU …

While Alabama is still smarting from its loss to Auburn it can celebrate another win over LSU. This one in recruiting.

After choosing the Tide, the defensive back called “Hootie” reached out to LSU fans on Twitter and had this to say:

Elsewhere …

Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe has resigned. It wasn’t that long ago that Grobe was a hot name in coaching, but Wake’s last winning season was 2008, the year Kendrick Lewis overran a sack that would have run out the clock and allowed Houston Nutt’s first Ole Miss team to beat a ranked team on the road … before it would do so at Florida.

The sad thing here is that Grobe needed only one more win to pass Peahead Walker as the school’s winningest coach. …
