2.  If the NCAA sits Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones over a report of illegal benefits he received in high school, the Dawgs do have options.

3.  Ex-Kentucky hoopster DeAndre Liggins — who some people didn’t think would even be drafted — now says he’ll use his second-round-pick status as motivation with the Orlando Magic.

4.  Prentiss Waggner is happy to play or corner or safety for Tennessee this fall.

5.  This writer has put together a test for UT’s athletic director candidates.

6.  The SEC has done away with divisions in basketball and is exploring new scheduling options.  Perhaps the league should also consider playing ball on this type of court.  (Odd.)

UT’s Waggner Still Practicing With What Might Be A Broken Hand

Tennessee safety Prentiss Waggner is still on the football field.  He’s still working on his coverage.  He’s just doing it with a club/cast on his left hand.

Waggner sent a shockwave through the Big Orange Nation on Sunday when he tweeted that he’d likely broken his hand.  Initial X-rays on Monday revealed “something.”  More X-rays are scheduled for Friday.

But in the meantime, Waggner is still practicing, albeit in a red no-contact jersery.

“I told him he didn’t hit anybody anyway, so really he’s still live,” Derek Dooley said.  “We’re just actually blowing the whistle when he gets near the runner.  Most of his work that he needs is pattern-match, covering, and he can still do all that.  I don’t think we’re missing much, and I’m sure he’s happy because he doesn’t have to put his screws on anybody.”
