"You tell the SEC when they can learn to read and write, then they can figure out what we're doing," Gee said, when asked by a questioner how to respond to SEC fans who say the Big Ten can't count because it now has 14 members.Gordon Gee, who also said many, many other stupid things
Will’s got a plan. Will coached under the devil himself for seven years. I only did three. He did seven. And his DNA is not any different than NickTim Davis, who coaches at Florida, discuss his time and Will Muschamp's time under Nick Saban. There were further shots later
SEC commish Mike Slive said SEC/ESPN press conference to announce SEC Network will be May 2 in AtlantaFrom Brett McMurphy I have a feeling a delay this long (from April 16) has less to do with allowing enough time to pass from the awful events in Boston that postponed it in the first place and more to do with find a day that all of the VIPs could reschedule to. More than enough time has passed now, but many who will attend are busy people.
Not official until Sunday, but Johnny Football's going to Disney World. Capital One Bowl will pick Texas A&MFrom Brett McMurphy This makes complete sense. Texas A&M hasn't played a bowl in Florida since the 1978 Hall of Fame Bowl (now Outback), so it will be a new destination for fans. The team will also probably have the reigning Heisman Trophy winner running an exciting offense. It makes perfect sense from a bowl committee's perspective. It also means that the SEC Championship Game loser will tumble down the bowl lineup if it can't finish third in the BCS ahead of Florida (which probably won't happen).

"Last year we weren’t coached very well. We weren’t as smart as players as we are this year with a change on defense." McNeal said. "Last year, we put on kind of a clown show, a lot of guys not doing their work and not doing their job. This year, we just detailed our work."Brutal Honesty Demetruce McNeal is much happier with this year's Auburn defense than last year's. You could argue they still put on a bit of a clown show in allowing 410 yards and 28 points to ULM, but who's counting?
On replay, although contact was made to the receiver’s helmet, the primary contact from the Vanderbilt defender was to the shoulder area. The Vanderbilt defender never lowers his head and the contact is made with his facemask up looking at the South Carolina receiver. It was a foul because there was glancing contact to the receiver's helmet. In the UAB contest, based on video replays, the contact was initiated by a slight launch of the defender into the receiver and the primary contact was targeted directly into the receiver's facemask.From the SEC The SEC released this statement to The State regarding why D.J. Swearinger got suspended for his hit against UAB but Vandy's Andre Hal did not have to sit for his hit on Justice Cunningham.
Smith: "Tyler Wilson took a hit to the head and was kept in Little Rock last night for observation. His prognosis is good." Day to day.From Robbie Neiswanger It's good to hear that Wilson wasn't roughed up too badly, but even him being there won't make much of a difference this coming Saturday based on what I've seen of the Arkansas defense so far. Tevin Mitchel, who was carted off after a scary hit, is doubtful for the Bama game with what the team is calling "an injury above the shoulders". It sounds like he'll recover well, but he'll need more than a week to do so.
