Live chat pushed back to 3:30 p.m.!

FYI,

Sorry for the inconvenience, but we’re going to need to move today’s scheduled live blog with Jerry McDonald back to a 3:30 p.m. start time.

Lane Kiffin’s press conference with the media today will be at 2 p.m., so we didn’t want to have a chat until Jerry and the crew had a chance to get some answers from the coach himself.

So you at 3:30 p.m.!
