Myrtle Beach Sun: Tennessee State upsets No. 9 Murray State 72-68. Yes - that's the same Tennessee State Tigers team that beat us 64-63 back on November 20. Maybe their beating everyone's-belle-of-the-ball Murray State takes some of the sting out of it.

Mr. SEC: UGA President Michael Adams is openly speculating that 4- Or 8-Team playoff is on the way. Uncle Mikey Slive, however, appears to be trying to slow the BCS-to-Playoff speculation. Not to be out-done by his boss in the gum-flapping department, UGA's A.D. Mike McGarity opines on future SEC scheduling. Who would be favored in a talking contest between McGarity and Adams? Crikey. I'm thinking it's a pick 'em.
