By now, you may have heard of the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), or its counterpart in the Senate, PROTECT IP (PIPA). Congress is currently debating this legislation, which are supported by Hollywood, the music and software industries, and the sports leagues. So why should we sports fans be concerned? As sports fans, we have come to expect to be able to find sports content online. Some of us look for important clips from plays we missed on TV, while others have sought out websites that stream games, whether it's because the game is blacked out in our area or we can't afford to subscribe to the NFL Sunday Ticket. Some of us also enjoy posting clips of games in blog posts or in discussion forums in conjunction with our community discussions. These clips greatly contribute to the conversation on our favorite sites; indeed, it's hard to imagine the Internet without them. In this age of new media, there are new and varied ways of using and sharing content that didn't exist just a few years ago, and content owners want to make sure that those uses don't go too far. The problem with SOPA as drafted is that the legislation could not only greatly reduce our ability to find the content we're looking for online, but it could also have serious implications for SB Nation and many of our other favorite sites. You can learn more about the implications of SOPA by reading Vox Media's official position. Vox and Sports Fans Coalition join Google, Twitter, Facebook, Wikipedia and many others in officially opposing this legislation. In fact, more than 1 million Americans have already emailed Congress to opposed SOPA; please join us and let Congress know that while it's important to strike a balance between the rights of content creators and free speech, this legislation goes too far. (Note: This post was written by the SB Nation team. It reflects the entire company's view on SOPA; not just one individual's.) -VIA Click here to learn more about SOPA and PIPA Wikipedia has a good page for you to contact your representative.

"Vad told me that the school is a great school, and that the next four years of my life will be a great experience. Vad is a cool guy, he's like a big brother," Summers said. Hopefully this puts to rest any rumors or thoughts that Vad may be transferring. Being used to recruit other guys and making comments like this sounds like he's here to stay. Source

One of the nation's toughest college football recruiting challenges may have just gotten a little bit easier...Wide receiver Demaryius Thomas' breakthrough effort Sunday in the Denver Broncos' 29-23 overtime victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers didn't merely advance his team to the next round of the playoffs.

(via gtsportstalk.com) "The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets received great news today as cornerback D.J. White from McDonough, Georgia and cornerback Anthony Autry from Norcross committed to the Jackets this morning. White had been a UCF commit but decided earlier in the week that he wanted to look elsewhere. In a conversation this afternoon with GTSportsTalk, White cited the great education at Georgia Tech, the solid reputation of the ACC and the coaching staff as reasons why he committed to Tech."

But Tech’s biggest problem Saturday against Georgia was no different than what its biggest problem has been for four years under coach Paul Johnson. Their defense stinks. They can’t stop anybody or intimidate anybody. Two many games come down to pinball games. Bad defense got Dave Wommack fired after two seasons. Bad defense under Al Groh should leave his future uncertain at the end of a two-year contract. Groh hasn’t said definitively that he wants to come back, but the question Johnson needs to ask himself is: Do I want him back? This is no minor issue. Johnson has won 34 games in four seasons. The Jackets’ 8-4 record this season going into their bowl finale certainly is not worse than most projected at the outset of this season, and it’s probably better. But when you have a defense that ranks 43rd in yardage, 56th in points allowed and 89th in third-down conversion, you’re not going anywhere. ... Tech is no better off on defense today than it was when they fired the last guy. Nationally, under Wommack the Jackets finished 28th (2008) and 54th (2009) in total defense. They were 64th in Groh’s first season and went into this week 43rd. Scoring defense in the past four seasons: 20th and 38th, respectively, under Wommack; 37th and 56th (entering the week) under Groh. ... But the head coach isn’t going anywhere. Groh, we’re not so sure. And when Tech fails, it’s usually not because of the offense.

Schultzy @ Atlanta's Joke Constitution What do y'all think? Too harsh, fairly accurate, or off the mark completely? How many years should a coach be allocated to "recruit his players" before it can be deduced that there's not going to be some huge turn-around in performance?

"I don't care what the British do," said Sonny Seiler, owner of the bulldog line that has become the most celebrated sports mascot in the United States. Critics in England and in the United States, however, said breeders have transformed bulldogs and some other dog breeds into genetic monstrosities... Augusta Chronicle

The Bills also filled the roster opening left by Eric Wood’s move to I-R by elevating defensive back Josh Nesbitt from the team’s practice squad. Nesbitt (6’1" 215), a former college quarterback at Georgia Tech, was an undrafted rookie signed by Buffalo this summer...The former option quarterback began training camp as a signal caller before switching over to the defensive side of the ball where he’s lined up as a safety. Nesbitt now gives Buffalo five safeties on their active roster.
