 Rodney Scott Receives SEC Sportsmanship Award |

Remember when this happened? You were probably crying in the corner because of the looming loss, but Rodney Scott did possibly save this guy's ability to walk. He'll get an opportunity to vie for the NCAA Sportsmanship award, and he probably has a legit shot. Check out the other SEC Sportsmanship Award recipient though.

Arbaugh, a sophomore infielder from Aiken, S.C., corresponded with members of the Dickinson State University softball team after three of its teammates died in a tragic automobile accident on November 1, 2009 in Dickinson, N.D.

She sent a card to the Dickinson State team expressing her sympathies. The card explained that she and her teammates were very sorry for their losses and they would keep the team and the families of the victims in their thoughts and prayers.  She also explained that she would never know exactly how they felt but that they could only imagine how it would feel to lose people that were so important in her life.

So she got an award for sending a card? I mean, I'm sure the team was appreciative, but what does it say about the acts of sportsmanship shown by our conference when the item second-most worthy of recognition is the purchase of a card and a few kind words?

Mississippi Players Await Thursday Draft Call | The Sun Herald via USA Today

Yeah. That's tomorrow. Terrico White has a good chance of being picked in the first round. I'm rooting for the guy, but I've been surprised by the number of our fans who are not. What gives? He played well for us for two years and got us national attention. Don't think for a minute that the reason two five-star prospects are favoring us has nothing to do with Terrico White's draft status.

Ole Miss To See Tuition Hike in 2010-2011 | The Daily Mississippian

That headline makes me laugh. When is the last time that tuition stayed the same from one year to the next? Also, an entire article about a 165 dollar per semester increase? That keeps in-state students under three thousand dollars per semester, which is just absurd when compared to some other schools. I know it's easy for me to say this now that I'm not longer a student there, but tuition should probably go up a little bit more, honestly.

SEC Proves Its Strength | Mobile Press Register

Vanderbilt has the fullest slate, playing Northwestern of the Big Ten, Connecticut of the Big East and Wake Forest of the ACC.

Neither Ole Miss nor Mississippi State has a BCS opponent on its non-conference slate.

Psst.... Vanderbilt. Look over here. Yeah.... over here. The two of us just wanted to let you in on a little secret. The three of us.... we're not really going to be that good this year. In years that you don't expect to be very good (see: every year), you should probably avoid scheduling three BCS teams out of conference. I know that the teams you chose aren't all that good, but neither are you. Follow our lead. Realize that the SEC schedule is tough enough for a program in the bottom three in funding. Quit being silly.
