  1. If CDM earned an extra 300K for the Peach Bowl (which I don’t begrudge him one iota), were I he (which I’m not by a whole lot of iotas) I would donate the whole amount to my favorite charity: The Florida Gator Anti-Defamation League. If not that, I’d donate it to the “Keep Willie Taggart at FSU Fund”.

    Like me on Facebook, whatever the hell that is, or at least follow my tweets at #BringontheChomp.com as soon as I figure out what that means.
