Monday Morning Update

Spanning the globe on a Monday morning …

Hugh Freeze reiterated yesterday that Tony Conner and Fadol Brown will have surgery soon and will not play in the Sugar Bowl.

Safety C.J. Hampton is still recovering from a stinger, and Freeze is optimistic that Hampton will play.

He said that senior linebacker Denzel Nkemdiche is likely done, that he does “not anticipate” the older playing but that he’s “doing well.”

The whole Denzel thing could have been handled better from an information standpoint. …

Heisman ballots are due today at 4. I voted yesterday.

So it’s Will Muschamp at South Carolina.  Just seems odd. Spurrier, an offensive guy, built that program, and now it’s handed off to a defensive guy who was unsuccessful at Florida where you can leave at 9 a.m. to go recruit and still punch out at 5 and have dinner at home. Auburn’s defense didn’t set the world afire this season, and it seems too soon for Muschamp’s second chance.

    PA…I read on another blog that suggested Denzel tried committing suicide.

    Will we EVER get the full story?

    As for Muschamp…who cares? The Gamecocks deserve another loser.
