Are you wondering how much it would cost Tennessee if it does fire Derek Dooley after this season? The answer is A LOT. His assistant coaches, including former South Carolina coach Jay Graham, would get some cash, too. I asked somebody this spring why Graham would take that job knowing how unstable it was and they told me they think he got some assurances hed have a good chance of sticking around under a new staff.
Mississippi State quarterback Tyler Russell is a good story. Could have gone somewhere other than Starkville, has them at 7-0, etc., etc. But I wonder if the glass slipper is going to crack this weekend, or maybe get torn off and stomped on? Alabama is up next.
Will Muschamp made a key decision when he took the Florida job by retaining special teams coach D.J. Durkin.
It is hard to believe Auburn tight end Philip Lutzenkirchens 15-year career in the SEC is finished. Isnt he one of those guys who seems like he has been around forever? Sad to see it end this way.
Tides big boy shaves his Mohawk. Now he wants the ball.
