SEC Headlines – 3/9/12 Part One

It’s going to have to be a shorter day on the site than planned, so we’ll jump right into the headlines and we’ll have plenty of ‘em.  Our apologies.

FYI, if you’re ever found to have cancer (let’s hope not) and you beat it (let’s hope so)… for the rest of your life you’re going to get one phone call after another from doctors asking you to come in for some “additional bloodwork.”

1.  Alabama’s moving on in the SEC Tournament.

2.  The Crimson Tide start spring practice today (and Nick Saban will surely brain anyone claiming Bama’s “starting it’s title defense.”)

3.  Auburn’s hoops season ended with a thud.

4.  AU has released salary info on its new coaches, including $850,000 D-coordinator Brian VanGorder.  (So you might say the Tigers are gambling on his success.  Rimshot.)

5.  It’s another early tournament exit for Arkansas…

6.  And it could mean the end of the season unless the Hogs become the first SEC squad to ever play in a tourney lower than the NIT.

7.  Johnny O’Bryant led LSU past Arkansas, now it’s Round Two with Kentucky.

8.  Mo Isom’s tryout for the LSU football team is drawing plenty of attention.  (Here’s guessing the knockout homecoming queen is used to drawing a lot of eyes.)

9.  Ole Miss dominated the offensive glass to slide past Auburn and set-up a big matchup with Tennessee today.

10.  Rebel coach Andy Kennedy joked that after a poor first-half: “I thought Terrence (Henry) had joined them, joined the scam.”  Ouch.

11.  Renardo Sidney says his MSU team didn’t “have any heart” in the second-half of their loss to Georgia last night.

12.  Two losses to a UGA club that’s hovered at #100 RPI-wise might be the reason State misses the NCAA tourney for a third-straight year.

13.  Texas A&M’s Khris Middleton says “right now” he’s staying for an SEC run rather than jump to the NBA.

UPDATE — College presidents continue to talk about postseason changes and full-cost-of-attendance scholarships.
