Around SB Nation's college blogs today:
- N.C. State hired former Alabama coach Mark Gottfried yesterday, but the school inexplicably allowed the news to be overshadowed by AD Debbie Yow's claim that the coaching search was sabotaged by Maryland head basketball coach Gary Williams. Terrapin blog Testudo Times finds it amusing that Yow made the statement with Gottfried sitting right next her. BC Interruption is not impressed with either the hire or Yow's handling of it.
- Track Em Tigers suggests that it's time for Auburn to go on the offensive to combat the continuing surge of negative publicity for the program.
- Team Speed Kills identifies SEC coaches' cost-per-win for 2010, finding that both Mississippi State and Auburn got their money's worth.
