    He will be eligible to play immediately.

  • Team Speed Kills has their own postmortem of the Florida-Kentucky game:

    Teams like Kentucky are not supposed to win in Hoover. Not because the Wildcats came into this game as the No. 9 seed facing the No. 1 seed in Florida. Instead, Kentucky is the kind of team that's supposed to have trouble in Hoover because they thrive on offense and struggle on pitching -- and Hoover Metropolitan is nothing if not a pitchers' park.

  • Mike Slive says that "Autonomy" will be the focus of the Big Five football conferences when it comes to NCAA reform:

    "Our presidents and chancellors have unanimously supported this effort to create autonomy in these areas that are related to student-athletes, so I anticipate that we will continue to support it," Slive said Wednesday in an interview with The Associated Press. "And I do anticipate that we will also want to see that the proposed model is modified so that that autonomy really means autonomy, that the five conferences can determine how their own legislative process will work."
