SEC Memorial Day Headlines

We here at MrSEC want to wish you a very fun (and very safe) Memorial Day today.  It’s hard to believe that summer is here and we’re just about halfway through 2010 already.  That means it won’t be too long til football season is upon us.

The SEC will be conducting its annual Spring Meetings this week and we’ll be sure to keep you up to date on any/all stories coming out of Destin.  We don’t expect many public comments regarding the league’s possible expansion responses.  At any rate, you can track all of the Spring Meetings news right here.

For today, here are the headlines from across the league (with some recruiting tidbits thrown in on the homepage):

1.  The second annual “Big Cat Weekend” had plenty of big names in Auburn over the past few days…

2.  And many of them came away impressed.

3.  Bobby Petrino and Arkansas lost out on a local hotshot quarterback to Auburn’s efforts.  (But it’s a long way to February.)

4.  MSU officials are bracing for the Battle of the Bells this week in Destin.

5.  Wondering what Bulldog fans think about their cowbells?  Read the comments under Kyle Veazey’s blog for The Jackson Clarion-Ledger.  (I continue to find it amusing that every fanbase in the SEC believes that either the conference, the NCAA or ESPN is on some sort of a “witch hunt” against their school.)

6.  For juco quarterback Randall Mackey, it’s been a long and winding road that’s led to Ole Miss’ door.

7.  The Florida-Georgia football game is one of the SEC’s best traditional rivalries.  And the two schools could soon sell the game’s name to a sponsor.  (And we predicted this might happen last summer.)

8.  Georgia will be adding some expensive new courtside seats to Stegeman Coliseum next year.

9.  Here’s a thorough Q&A on the NCAA’s Eric Bledsoe investigation and what it could mean for Kentucky.

10.  ESPN says it could mean vacated victories.  (John Calipari might not become the nation’s winningest basketball coach, but he’s already well on his way to becoming the all-time leader in non-existent wins.)

11.  Rick Bozich of The Louisville Courier-Journal writes that things are unfolding for Calipari just as they always do.

12.  Ron Morris of The State tells South Carolina fans to trust in AD Eric Hyman because he’s the first USC AD in 20 years to have a plan.

13.  When it comes to power and success, Nick Saban and agent Jimmy Sexton lead the way in the SEC.

14.  During this week’s Spring Meetings, SEC officials will look at how they seed the conference basketball tournament.

15.  Here’s a Memorial Day message from Tony Barnhart of The AJC.  Excellent as always.
