- Worried about a QB for next year? Don't forget about Nick Stephens, and don't miss Hooper's posting of the Tyler Bray video, but also note this: Notre Dame has not one, but two QB commits: Andrew Hendrix and Tommy Rees. Weis's biscuits are burning, and if he's gone after this season, what happens to those guys? I mean besides having Ed Orgeron camped in their front yards, because that's a given.
- My prediction? Pain. (/Mr. T voice) I had no idea that Chris Walker's back pain was at times so severe he had trouble getting out of bed. Really hoping they get that under control.
- Michael Silence rounds up the first salvos advocating for Lane Kiffin, Coach of the Year.
- Tennessee's game against Vandy is set for 7:00 p.m., and will be broadcast on ESPNU.
- 3SiB on Jonathan Crompton:
I’m sorry for selling you short, Jonathan. You’ve certainly earned your orange jersey and that T on your helmet in my mind. How far you’ve come in a little more than a month is a testament to your work ethic, perseverance and self-confidence. Anybody who has overcome ridicule, benching, hatred and death threats to become what you have is a strong person and one that I’m happy is on my team. Now, let’s go out there and finish your career in style.
- Expectations are tricky things. Bruce Pearl's team will likely start four seniors and returns its top seven scorers from last year's 21-win team and added, among others, the aforementioned Mr. McBee, who may provide the consistent outside scoring threat last year's team lacked. This could be a fun season. Or a disappointing one. Expectations are like that.
- Walk-on U? First the football team has Nick Reveiz and the Sullins twins. Now, the basketball team has Skylar McBee, who's been so impressive early that his presence has moved Cameron Tatum from shooting guard to small forward and who is even, according to Bruce Pearl, pushing McDonald's All-American Scotty Hopson for the first-team job at shooting guard.By the way, Renaldo Woolridge has been, for the time being, squeezed out of the 10-man rotation, thanks in part to McBee and fellow freshman Kenny Hall.
