Owing to the storm, the ol’ AJC is making myajc.com, our premium site, available for no charge through Thursday. Which means: Bonus Bradley! Such a deal, huh?
OK, I’m kidding. Personally, I’d never advise anyone to read a word I’ve written. But if you insist, here are some recent offerings. (And if you don’t like the idea of such a listing, blame esteemed colleague Ken Sugiura. I stole it from him.)
On the rampaging Panthers: Georgia State’s Ron Hunter tries not to look toward March.
On Oklahoma State’s Marcus Smart: Smart was wrong, but are loutish fans right?
From UGA on Signing Day: Will the Class of 2014 help Mark Richt win the one thing he hasn’t?
On the signings of Freddie and Jason: A big Braves’ day — Freeman locked up, Heyward placated.
A pre-Signing Day effort: UGA plays and recruits well; Georgia Tech plays better than it recruits.
A question partially answered two days after this appeared: How long can the Braves afford their young core?
Speaking of storms: Good in many ways, Atlanta is awful in bad weather.
From the first day of pitching camp: No Braves’ buzz doesn’t mean they won’t win big.
Remember when Tech was in the SEC? No? Fifty years ago, Tech left the conference.
Recalling the Falcons’ greatest victory and their Super Bowl loss: An historic victory in Minneapolis, a cosmic letdown in Miami.
On the current state of the local NFL franchise: The Falcons have fallen, but they can get up.
On a big win for the local NBA franchise: Beating the Heat shows that the Hawks are building the right way.
On the local MLB franchise’s quiet offseason: The do-nothing Braves still seem the class of the National League East.
On Tech football and its coach’s job security: AD Bobinski’s message to Paul Johnson — do better soon.
Looking way ahead: A preseason Top 25 begins with Florida State (and has Georgia at No. 12.)
Off the beaten path: A nostalgic look at NBA (and ABA) travel tales.
On the end of the BCS: College football moves to a playoff, and Jimbo Fisher is leery.
On the BCS title game: A dramatic Florida State drive snaps the SEC’s string of national championships.
A BCS prediction (that came good, if just): SEC-like Florida State will halt the SEC’s run.
Answer: No. Can a bad Auburn defense win a game this big?
On the Heisman winner: FSU’s Jameis Winston, a dreamer of blowout-sized dreams.
On the epic Chick-fil-A Bowl: The basketball school falls just short against Johnny Football.
On the Jackets’ Music City Bowl loss: Paul Johnson loses faith; Tech loses a winnable game.
And that’s it, dating back to Dec. 31, 2013. That’s way too much for anyone to digest, but I offer it nonetheless. And you really can’t beat the price.
