A few of the things we've looked at this morning despite the fact our Internet is running rather slowly:
Florida's Urban Meyer has signed a $4 million deal at Florida, making him the best-paid football coach in the SEC. Here's the Gainesville Sun take on that story.
SEC football teams reporting to camps on Monday: Georgia, where they're celebrating the fact there were no off-season arrests; South Carolina, where Steve Spurrier has six (!) new assistant coaches; Tennessee, where new coach Lane Kiffin insists only one starting job on his depth chart is secure. Auburn was set to report on Tuesday with workouts starting on Wednesday.
The watch list for the Davey O'Brien National Quarterback Award is out this week and the odd thing isn't that the list contains two Heisman Trophy winners but that it has an Arkansas QB on there who has yet to take a snap with the Razorbacks. Yes, Jevan Snead of Ole Miss is on there, too.
The Cincinnati Enquirer updates Monday's injury of tight end Reggie Kelly, who's from Aberdeen. He's still on track for season-ending Achillies surgery on Wednesday.
Bill Hall, the big-league veteran from Nettleton, tells MLB.com that his brief trip to Triple-A Nashville helped him get "some confidence back" at the plate. He went 0-for-3 Monday night at Los Angeles but did draw a base-loaded walk -- and that goes in the books as an RBI.
Big lefty pitcher Joe Savery, the Philadelphia Phillies farmhand who has family in Tupelo and Oxford, won his Triple-A debut on Monday night. That story is the lead item in the Phillies' minor league update today at MLB.com
