Missouri coach Eli Drinkwitz remains solidly supportive of starting quarterback Connor Bazelak, but the quarterback scenario is murkier elsewhere in the SEC East.

Just Talkin’ Lagniappe for Oct. 23, 2021

Just a few weeks ago JT mentioned the state was ending their fiscal year with a $1 billion surplus. While lots of leaders are claiming credit about the good job they’ve done…the surplus is actually attributed to the massive amount of money the state received from various forms of Covid stimulus. Knowing there’s money left over, the fight has already started for a piece of the pie. One such group is the Board of Regents who is seeking an almost 20 percent increase over last year’s budget. They want $220 million more than last year. That’s on top of the $97 million they got over the previous year’s budget and hundreds of millions of dollars in federal pandemic aid. Their budget last year was $1.17 billion and that doesn’t include the stimulus money… a lot of which they put not on infrastructure or staffing, but on students’ debt to them. JT thinks a wiser investment would be to send that $220 million to the state’s rural parishes to fix roads and bridges. For once they should take a priority; especially over the metroplitatian areas and special interest requests.

Kirby Smart Has QB Dilemma, Which Will Be Solved By Practice As Georgia Prepares For Florida
