Calipari will decide this afternoon

Stay tuned to Team Speed Kills and A Sea of Blue, SB Nation's blog for Kentucky fans.

UK expects Calipari

1

Some say he's already agreed. Memphis boosters are meeting or have met with Calipari today, but the reason for the meeting is unclear.

Alabama, Anthony Grant Agree to Deal

Busy day in SEC basketball -- agreement in principle, Grant texts The Birmingham News. This is a great relief to Mal Moore, who will in this case not be rejected a half dozen times before getting his man. Full wrap-up on all today's action later.

Donovan says no-ish

He could be more explicit, but it's not really a non-denial denial, either.

It's treason! Treason, I tell you!

Well, Nick Saban didn't have to go far to find his new linebackers coach. In fact, he needed only go down the road to Auburn-Opelika, it appears. The cruelest cut? Not only was James Willis the only Tuberville holdover in the Chizik Junta -- Auburn is his alma mater. Terms being used at Track Em Tigers include "Benedict Arnold" and a comparison to "Robert Gates becoming Iraq's Secretary of Defense." And that's from the first two comments.

Paul Rhoads has been hired to be head coach at Iowa State. Imagine the outcry on the Plains if he does a better job than Chizik.

More on the Auburn-Race Controversy

And the Valley Shook, SB Nation's LSU blog, does an expert job of breaking down in detail something I touched on in my post on the role of race in Auburn's decision to hire Gene Chizik: How "racially neutral" hiring practices can still put black candidates at a disadvantage.

Dan Mullen to Mississippi State

We can assume this hire was not made with an eye on helping beat Ole Miss. Most immediately important part of news: "It is unclear whether Mullen will stay with Florida through the FedEx BCS National Championship Game against Oklahoma, a source said."
