Afternoon Grab Bag

A few after-lunch morsels for you:

Chris Low of ESPN.com has listed five things to watch for in the SEC East this season.

David Climer of The Tennessean writes that once again John Calipari has slithered through the NCAA cracks.

Note to outraged columnists: folks in Kentucky don’t care about Calipari’s reputation.

Tommy Hicks of The Mobile Press-Register lays out the biggest games on the SEC football schedule, week by week.

Tony Barnhart of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution chimes in on Bryce Brown, Auburn’s reality television show, the Charlie Ward-Tim Tebow debate, and the possibility that Phillip Fulmer could someday land at Louisville.  (Steve Kragthorpe must love that.)



The SEC has decided to allow fans to use Twitter and Facebook during league games, which reverses an earlier decision.  Fans still, however, cannot post game video on the internet. 

Does the SEC intend to sue every person who posts video of a game shot with cell phone camera?  First, good luck with that… and second (as I wrote weeks ago regarding the SEC’s new media restrictions), why restrict the very people who have helped make the league the most popular conference in America?  This is short-sighted greed and it will bite the SEC in the end.



And since it’s finally Friday, why not talk a little about beer?  Several NCAA schools are.  They’re talking specifically about Bud Light.

It seems that Anheuser-Busch has decided to wrap some of their Bud Light cans in the official school colors of some of the top athletic programs in the country.  Mind you the new “fan cans” don’t have any reference to the schools — no words, no logos — they simply use the schools’ colors.

But that hasn’t stopped several institutions from going all legal on the beer-makers.  So grab your team color cans of Bud Light brew while you can.
