- Team Speed Kills notes that Vanderbilt flirted with disaster the entire time against upset-minded Murray State, right up until they were beat by one at the buzzer.
- A Sea of Blue is just happy that the Kentucky Wildcats avoided any of the lethargy and consequent drama suffered by SEC colleagues Florida and Vanderbilt.
- With rumors circulating that Auburn is close to hiring Minnesota's Tubby Smith as its new head basketball coach, Track Em Tigers examines the recent comments of alum Charles Barkley, who was openly critical of his alma mater when it failed to hire an African-American to fill its vacant head football coaching position last year.
