SEC East Headlines – 12/30/09

1.  At least three Florida players have said that they’re seriously worried about Urban Meyer’s health.  Safety Major Wright said, “This is crazy.  This man might literally die over a football game.”  (It sounds like Wright has a better grasp of his coach’s chest pains than Meyer himself does.)

2.  This writer makes light of the situation and suggests that his wife’s “honey-do” list might be what drove Meyer back to coaching after a 12-hour retirement.  (And the writer will look like a real tool if Meyer keels over on the sideline someday.)

7.  Quarterbacks coach Scot Loeffler says he has had zero contact with Central Michigan about their head coaching job.  (That doesn’t mean he won’t, of course.)

8.  With coaches and players and interims coming and going, the Sugar Bowl figures to be “the Bizarre Bowl” on Friday night.

9.  Apparently Gator fans don’t care that it’s the last game for Tim Tebow, tons of great seniors and possibly Meyer… ’cause they’re still not buying tickets to the game.  (Spoiled, spoiled, spoiled.)

11.  The Gators host Presbyterian tonight and a UF walk-on could play a significant role once again.

13.  John Chavis?  Kirby Smart?  Todd Grantham?  Bob Sanders?  Folks continue to try to guess who’ll be the Dawgs’ next defensive coordinator.

14.  Could Chavis decide to leave Baton Rouge because “he witnessed a very shaky sideline this season at LSU and some questionable offensive game plans and game day management?”

15.  The look ahead to UGA’s 2010 schedule has already begun.

16.  Mark Richt says its time for a new group of seniors to step up and “decide how they want to lead this team.”

22.  Tech’s defense is also “tricky.”

23.  Tennessee’s coaches say they aren’t scaling back their offense for tomorrow’s game.

24.  This writer believes UT is in better position than Georgia to capitalize on uncertainty at Florida.  (But, as he writes, he thought that when Steve Spurrier resigned as well.)

27.  Freshman John Wall set the Kentucky school record for assists with 16 last night.

28.  The Cats whooped Hartford 104-61 and now prepare for their annual battle with Louisville on Saturday.

29.  The Cardinals might be able to take advantage of UK’s biggest weakness — three-point defense.  (John Calipari wants Cat fans to take it easy on the Rick Pitino posters and chants on Saturday.  Classy move.)

30.  According to this notes column, there’s no word on the long-term availability of injured freshman Eric Bledsoe.

31.  This writer believes that despite Rich Brooks’ good work, the UK football job remains one of the toughest in college football.
