Kirk Hinrich Trade, Nation's Football Classic, And Willie Martinez Violations: Around The Perimeter

Morehouse: Morehouse College will play Howard at RFK Stadium on Sept. 10 in what's being billed as the inaugural Nation's Football Classic. The DC United are complaining about the condition the field will be left in after the game. If you were really bored enough, you could probably call the DC United racist for that.

Hawks: Kirk Hinrich was traded for Mike Bibby and Jordan Crawford last night. Peachtree Hoops reactsas does Hoopinion.

↵

Dawgs: Former Georgia Bulldogs defensive coordinator Willie Martinez is in trouble as Oklahoma Sooners defensive backs coach. He's accused of aggressively encouraging players to attend voluntary offseason workouts, a secondary violation. Your best joke about Willie Martinez and aggression, please.

↵

Also, with Champ Bailey having been re-signed by the Denver Broncos, Bubba N Earl wonders whether the Falcons could bring home another former Dawg: Charles Johnson.

↵

Also, Kennesaw State's Vince Dooley and MMA fighter Herschel Walker are fighting about billboards or something. CONFESSION: I did not read this.

↵

Collegiate athletics: Connecticut Huskies student newspaper complains about UConn basketball having a home field advantage. This has nothing to do with Atlanta sports, other than the offended party should perhaps start attending Georgia Tech hoops games.

This has been your daily-ish circling of the Atlanta sports blogosphere and more. If you have anything that belongs here next time, holler. To ride with us again tomorrow or so, follow @SBNAtlanta on Twitter.
