UF:  Followed by a preview of their offensive line.

UF:  Tim Tebow is no fan of ebay (and I can’t blame him).

UF:  In basketball news, Georgetown transfer Vernon Macklin doesn’t want to be viewed as a savior for Florida’s inside game.

UF:  Meanwhile, Nick Calathes knows that his workouts with NBA teams over the next two months will decide whether or not he goes pro or returns to Gainesville.

UGA:  The starting lineups are set for tomorrow’s G-Day game in Athens.

UGA:  The Dawgs’ hotshot freshman quarterbacks will both get time in the game.

UGA:  Despite the Masters, Braves baseball and ESPN’s coverage… Georgia is hoping for a record crowd tomorrow.

UGA:  Mark Richt and Mike Bobo talked about the wideouts vying to replace injured starter Kris Durham this fall.  (Durham was expected to replace Mohamed Massaquoi.)

UK:  Last year’s do-everything man, Randall Cobb, is once again taking snaps at receiver and quarterback… but coaches hope he’ll be a fulltime wideout this fall.

UK:  For the first time since Rich Brooks arrived on campus, Kentucky has finally built up some depth on the offensive line.

UK:  In basketball news, Mark Story of The Lexington Herald-Leader doesn’t see any ethical issues with John Calipari bringing in his former Memphis recruits.  (Wonder if anyone would have a problem in Lexington if the shoe was on the other foot and Calipari was luring UK recruits away?)

USC:  Travis Haney of The Charleston Post and Courier also states emphatically that Horn DID speak with Xavier officials.

USC:  In football news, here’s a list of Carolina’s candidates for preseason honors.

USC:  Steve Spurrier wants Stephen Garcia and his receivers to “throw the ball around a bunch” this summer.

UT:  It sounds like Phillip Fulmer isn’t planning to get too chummy with his replacement.

UT:  The quarterbacks Fulmer left on the roster had “a really horrendous day” in practice yesterday, according to Lane Kiffin.

UT:  Monte Kiffin even joked about having to call off the dogs in his seconday at one point.

UT:  Kiffin the Younger, in an extended radio interview, says that he wasn’t nearly as mouthy in Oakland as he has been in Knoxville… and that’s by design.
