- B.J. Coleman will in fact play for UT-Chattanooga next season. Best of luck to Coleman.
- The schedule for SEC Media Days in late July starts slow on Wednesday with Bobby Petrino, Bobby Johnson, Dan Mullen, and Rich Brooks, and then kicks into high gear Thursday with Nick Saban, Mark Richt, Urban Meyer, and Houston Nutt. Friday features Gene Chizik, Steve Spurrier, Les Miles, and Lane Kiffin. So yeah, Meyer and Kiffin won't be in the same room on the same day. Perhaps we can avoid subpoenas this year, hmm?
- At least one website thinks that Rico McCoy is a first-round draft pick ($) next year.
- Inside Tennessee notes that although Tennessee has a few areas of probable weakness, running back isn't one of them ($).
- Marlon Walls -- who blew right past defensive end from linebacker to defensive tackle -- is marshaling the troops ($), keeping in close contact with Nu'Keese Richardson, Greg King, David Oku, and a bunch of the other highly touted recruits in this year's class.
- Who knew? Robert Neyland was a janitor who fought in the Civil War!
- DE Chris Walker made Bruce Feldman's list of 10 breakout players from spring practice at No. 9.
- Bruce Pearl is not happy about losing a scholarship due to the APR rules, which he thinks is well-intended but ill-applied. If Tyler Smith returns, someone will have to go. The most-probable loss would be Phillip Jurick.
- Over the Pylon has compiled a list of the most statistically-balanced teams of 2008. The list only goes to 25, but I'm guessing Tennessee would have been 1,000th. Or so.
- Team Speed Kills has its No. 7 in the Top 10 SEC-Big 10 games of the last decade -- the 2000 Outback Bowl between Georgia and Purdue.
- Crimson and Cream Machine has a list of the Big 12's most embarrassing non-conference games of 2009.
- Maize n Brew wonders how much is too much when it comes to college football recruiting.
