7.  Auburn’s Tony Barbee loves the extra time he can spend with players in the summer thanks to an NCAA rule change.

8. Arkansas has spent a lot of cash for arguably the eighth-best signing classes in the SEC the last two years.  (Of course, Bobby Petrino’s system allowed him to win without five-stars at every positition.)

14.  Georgia assistant John Lilly hasn’t forgotten the two long punt returns LSU used to whip the Dawgs in the SEC Championship Game.

15.  This writer says that if Georgia doesn’t become a factor in the new playoff, Mark Richt will be remembered as “a coach who was good enough to stick around a long time — but not quite great.”

16.  Guess what.  Kentucky will be led by freshmen again this year on the basketball court.

17.  The coaches of two of UK’s oldest rivals — Vanderbilt and Tennessee — aren’t thrilled to be losing the Cats on a home-and-home basis under the SEC’s shortsighted, brain-achingly stupid, new scheduling format.

18.  A little baseball salute to South Carolina who saw their push for a third-straight College World Series title come up shot last night.  Sa-lute.  It was a heckuva run.  (And now maybe someone in the Palmetto State will start talking about football.)

19.  Frank Martin’s arrival in Columbia could be troublesome for Cuonzo Martin in Knoxville.

20.  Mercurial Tennessee receiver Da’Rick Rogers is The Gainesville Sun’s #21 player in the SEC.
