How the SEC East Will Be Won … By Someone. Eventually | Team Speed Kills
So what you’re saying is, it would have been possible to wrap up the East after this weekend if we had beaten Kentucky. Arrrrrrrgh.

Spurs Up a minute… Brian Maddox | Spurs Up
Check out Spurs Up getting the scoop on Brian Maddox. Uh, I guess it’s a little easier when you work for the USC athletic department… And what’s with the Blair Witch treatment? Even Oliver Stone thinks you need to invest in a tri-pod.
By the way, if I had to guess who Brian’s favorite Nija Turtle is, I totally would have called Donatello.

Chick-fil-A Bowl to scout Vols-Gamecocks | wbir.com
Meh. Why do Bowls even have scouts? It all comes down to W/L and momentum at the ned of the season. They could do the same thing sitting on their couch. What, exactly, are they looking at, anyway?

Coach Shelley Smith on Florida:
“I think that shows the two styles,” Smith said. “Florida’s so dangerous. They have strong athletes, they’re always fast, they have great pace; it’s hard to contain them. When you play Florida, you know you have to score a couple goals to have a chance to win.”

SWIMMING & DIVING
Gamecocks to Host Clemson for the Final Time | Gamecocks Online
Clemson is getting rid of its Swimming & Diving program. Guess they need the money to help them beat UNC on a regular basis (in football, we all know that all-time record in basketball is going nowhere fast).
South Carolina’s biggest rivalry in swimming & diving will be renewed for the penultimate time on Friday as the Clemson Tigers visit the newly-renovated Blatt P.E. Center/Carolina Natatorium for a 5 p.m. dual meet.
With Clemson announcing that the university would be phasing out its swimming & diving program, it will be the final time for the Tigers to compete against the Gamecocks in Columbia; Carolina will travel to Clemson next year to close out the series that dates back to 1923.
