Morning Wrap And Big Stories – 7/23/09 – Part One

As we gear up to bring you coverage of four more press conferences this morning, I thought I’d just give you some quick whip-around coverage from across the SEC this morning.

Three nuggets from ESPN.com’s Chris Low to start:

Rich Brooks called UK’s Trevard Lindley “the best cornerback in college football.”

Sources tell ESPN that tailback Anthony Dixon will likely be suspended for the MSU’s season opener.  By suspending him — for all the world to see — it hardly sounds like the discipline will be handled internally as Dan Mullen initially suggested.

Arkansas defensive lineman Malcolm Sheppard doesn’t count his partial blindness in one eye as a disability.

The SEC’s huge monetary advantage over other conferences is a big reason for the league’s on-field advantage.

Secondary violations got a lot of talk yesterday.

Tony Barnhart of The AJC sums up Day One of Media Days right here.

There’s no doubt the SEC’s new television deals will help the SEC expand their “national brand.”

Tim Tebow is the cover boy on this week’s Sports Illustrated.  Can Superman avoid the SI jinx?

Florida’s basketball team will face Michigan State in Atlantic City  on Thanksgiving weekend.

Arkansas tight end DJ Williams “triumphs on and off” the field.

Dan Mullen may be more energetic than Urban Meyer when it comes to press conferences, but a lot of what he said yesterday sounded as though it came straight from his old boss’ playbook.

Mullen is bringing excitement not only to pressers but to Starkville as well.

Florida and Tennessee fans anxiously await quarterback Jesse Scroggins’ 3pm ET decision on ESPN.  Too bad most folks think he’ll choose Southern Cal.

Three signees from February will not enroll at Kentucky this fall and two others are up in the air.

Rich Brooks no longer thinks he’ll stay at UK long enough to pass Fran Curci’s nine-year run at the school.  That admission has Kentucky sportswriters wondering if the end of the coaching road is near for the man who’ll be 68 this fall.
