Around The SEC East – 4/1/09

Here are the top stories, summaries and links from the SEC’s East Division:

Vandy:  Offensive coordinator Ted Cain says that he’s very happy with his trio of tight ends.

UT:  Jonathan Crompton reacted well when Lane Kiffin surprised him with extra first-string snaps on Tuesday.

UT:  Crompton, who struggled mightily last year, said, “I’m 100% confident in my ability, my arm, my reads and everything.”

UT:  Kiffin went more physical in Tuesday’s practice, still trying to “find out who they are up there.”

UT:  Since the SEC expanded in 1992, Tennessee is the only league school not to play an FCS (Division I-AA) school.  That streak will end with a visit from UT-Martin in 2010.

UGA:  Prince Miller has become the top corner in the Bulldogs’ secondary.

UGA:  Injuries at defensive end have forced Mark Richt to start looking at walk-ons in practice.

UGA:  On offense, Georgia wants to take some of the pressure off of receiver AJ Green.

UGA:  Halfway through spring practice, no one has claimed the starting tailback job.

UGA:  This writer doesn’t believe Damon Evans knows where he’s going to turn next in his coaching search, but one of the guy’s coaching in the NIT’s championship game could figure into the mix.

UGA:  Terence Moore of The AJC believes Georgia should be calling Tubby Smith about a return engagement.

UF:  Donovan’s assistant Shaka Smart will be leaving to take over the VCU program vacated by former UF assistant Anthony Grant.

UF:  Nick Calathes might be gone, too… and it might be Donovan that’s driven him away.

UF:  Here’s an early look at what Florida’s rotation might look like next season.

UF:  Memphis fans are now wondering if they might be able to lure Donovan to West Tennessee.

USC:  Three early enrollees are looking good for South Carolina this spring.

USC:  Offensive line coach Eric Wolford made his linemen run after practice after counting 26 “lack-of-effort plays” in a recent scrimmage.

UK:  Calipari is headed back to Memphis to hold a press conference there, too.  That’s a stand-up move.

UK:  On the gridiron, Randall Cobb’s future is “mainly” at wide receiver.

UK:  And I close with my favorite story of the day — a new Maker’s Mark bottle will carry an image of Rich Brooks on its label.  Perfect for chugging after another late-season SEC swoon.
