Gotta lot of radio to do today plus CSS tonight, so we’re gonna jam all the day’s headlines into one post. Ready? Here goes…
1. Florida’s Patrick Young is battling ankle tendinitis.
2. Georgia should be well represented in the NFL draft.
3. Freshman tailback Keith Marshall challenged sophomore receiver Malcolm Mitchell to a foot race… and almost beat him. (Video.)
4. Mike Anderson says his Arkansas team will be on the attack against Kentucky tonight.
5. Meanwhile, this writer says the UK-Tennessee multi-sport rivalry is becoming a good one.
6. South Carolina is going to be awfully deep at running back next season.
7. Cuonzo Martin wants Tennessee to cut down on turnovers.
8. In Knoxville, it’s all about defense.
9. Ex-Vanderbilt coach Ricky Logo has been hired onto Houston’s football staff. (Corrected: Logo was NOT on VU’s staff this past season.)
10. New Alabama offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier is described as a Jim McElwain clone.
11. An idiot, scumbag Alabama fan could face jail time for his videotaped assault on drunken LSU fan. (If any of the folks captured in the NSFW video are UA students, the school should boot ‘em. By doing what they did and laughing at a poor drunk guy they embarrass the school they supposedly love. Here’s hoping some these heartless losers go to jail.)

13. Auburn needs a big night from Frankie Sullivan tonight at LSU.
14. Brandon Mitchell — Arkansas’ backup quarterback — could make his hoops debut tonight.
15. The Hogs see tonight’s game in Lexington as an opportunity to make a big impression.
16. LSU will try to get back to .500 in league play against Auburn this evening.
17. It’s official… Gunner Kiel has enrolled at Notre Dame.
18. Unlike Dan Mullen, Rick Stansbury isn’t boasting of his team’s success against Ole Miss.
19. Dundrecous Nelson — Ole Miss’ leading scorer until he was dismissed following a pot arrest two weeks ago — will transfer to Jackson State.
