TWO BITS: Brantley razzes LSU, SEC RB rankings

1 » Florida Gators sophomore quarterback John Brantley was apparently in a joking mood today while writing his facebook status update, being sure to mention LSU Tigers fans who have been razzing and taunting him since receiving his cell phone number. “Like to thank all the LSU fans for such encouraging phone calls,” Brantley wrote. Whatever you need to get the juices going, John!

2 » Based on performance during the 2009 season, ESPN’s SEC blogger Chris Low has ranked his top five running backs in the conference. A single Florida Gators RB among the names? Of course not. Never mind the fact that Jeff Demps has 28 rushing attempts for 304 yards and four touchdowns this season. That is only a paltry 10.9 yards per carry average. My point? If you are basing your rankings on “what they’ve done this season,” Demps is easily in the fold. Maybe in a typical power running back sense Demps would not make the cut, but I did not set the parameters, Low did.
