SEC East Headlines – 3/19/10

With four SEC East schools in action yesterday, there will be a lot more East Division headlines than West Division headlines.

That said, here goes…

1.  Double-overtime meant double the pain for Florida, which lost to BYU 99-92 in yesterday’s first round.

2.  Senior Dan Werner said, “We left it all out there, and that’s all you can ask.”

3.  Ultimately the Gators didn’t have the depth they needed to advance.

4.  Billy Donovan said his team had its chances.

5.  Urban Meyer seems to love freshman receiver Solomon Patton.

6.  Speaking of Meyer, this writer says he can’t get upset when reporters ask about his health… he was the one who scared “his players and UF fans.”  She’s right, too.

7.  Tim Tebow hasn’t decided whether to attend the NFL draft or not.  (Don’t do it, Tim.  You don’t want to be Aaron Rodger-ed.)

8.  Josh Davis — returning from offseason surgeries to both shoulders — will be the key to Georgia’s O-line success.

9.  New secondary coach Scott Lakatos is embracing the southern lifestyle.  (I’m tempted to ask if he’s moved into a double-wide, but as a southerner, I’d find that offensive.  D’oh.)

10.  Here’s a practice report from yesterday’s work in Athens.

11.  Richard Samuel has changed positions again… this time going from outside linebacker to inside.

12.  Defensive line coach Rodney Garner is having to make a lot of adjustments as the system and coaches around him have changed.

13.  Thanks to some really stupid/careless Georgia fans who trashed their own campus last year, UGA is putting in some tough tailgating rules for everyone.

14.  The Junkyard Blawg says Mark Richt disagreed with him on a point he didn’t make.  (Which, given my dealings with the Junkyard Blawg, I find pretty ironic.)

15.  Mark Fox says that Travis Leslie has told him he’ll be back at Georgia next year.

16.  Kentucky’s 100-71 win over ETSU was such a yawner that fans were seen sleeping in the stands.

17.  UK used a barrage of three-pointers to sink the Buccaneers.

18.  Eric Bledsoe drained 9-of-11 shots and if he keeps shooting like that, the Cats have just added “a dangerous new dimension.”

19.  DeMarcus Cousins got a marriage proposal from a fan during yesterday’s game.

20.  It had been a long time coming, but Patrick Patterson’s first NCAA tournament game was worth the wait.

21.  South Carolina’s running back corps is ready to welcome in hotshot tailback prospect Marcus Lattimore.

22.  Carolina’s offense has been all no-huddle through three spring practices.

23.  USC’s is looking for deeper kickoffs — and possibly a new kicker — in 2010.

24.  Bruce Pearl was proud of his team’s effort in a gritty, ugly 62-59 win over San Diego State yesterday.

25.  The Vols got an unexpected boost from backup point guard Melvin Goins who sank four of five treys… including the game-winner.

26.  UT’s players were glad to give Pearl a nice present on his 50th birthday.

27.  It was yet another scrappy win for Tennessee.

28.  Derek Dooley said his quarterbacks have a “long way to go” but yesterday was a good first day of practice.

29.  A day after saying former tight end/receiver Brandon Warren hadn’t approached him about returning, Dooley said the he “forgot” that he had indeed had a conversation with Warren.

30.  Dooley also said that running back Bryce Brown isn’t necessarily done at Tennessee just yet…

31.  But it doesn’t sound likely that he’ll return.

32.  Jeffery Taylor said that Vanderbilt’s 66-65 last-second loss to Murray State was “just heartbreaking.”

33.  To make matters worse, the SEC’s best foul-shooting squad hit just 17 of 29 free throw attempts yesterday.

34.  Murray State’s buzzer-beating shot was “a miracle play” according to coach Billy Kennedy.

35.  President Barack Obama might have lost some votes in Nashville by picking Murray State, but he did help his bracket.
