Friday Morning Update

Spanning the globe on a Friday morning.

I am traveling to Austin today and will check in later on. News often breaks on travel day. Let’s all think good thoughts about that.

I have no idea where this originated or who to credit. It's just an example of the fun of the internet and, I suppose, what the originator thinks will happen in this year's Game of the Century when Alabama visits Texas A&M Saturday.

From Austin, the latest on Texas QB David Ash is just like the earliest. He hasn’t played and remains questionable for Ole Miss. A decision could come shortly before kickoff Saturday night at 7. …

From Nashville, one of the four Vanderbilt football player dismissed from the team for his role in a rape case is already playing college football again. And it’s pretty close to home.

From Knoxville, Tennessee will hold out DT Mo Couch against Oregon in the wake of the Yahoo report on mostly former players from three SEC schools — Alabama and MSU were also included — allegedly receiving impermissible benefits.

From AL.com, trying to find out exactly who is sports agent John Phillips? 

Mike Herndon reports that Alabama’s 2012 national champion could be called into question if the NCAA validates Yahoo’s report.

On the non-investigation front, Texas A&M fans are getting ready to host the big game, and they hope the traveling Alabama fans “live up to the hype.” …

Still in Texas, SI’s Andy Staples takes a look at the state of college football in Texas where at least one Texas A&M player says the Aggies have taken over. Staples agrees.

In a key SEC Eastern Division game, South Carolina’s first bounce-back opportunity is against Vanderbilt, a team that came very close to defeating the Gamecocks in Nashville last season.

    Like that picture Mr. PA. Keep us informed about good ole Coach Freeze and all our Rebel Sharks. Looking for a little pressure this time around.

    Would Texas beat Oklahoma St. if they played tonight?

    Saban had a much worried and serious face on this morning in one sports page – NCAA could be giving him a bit of chastising – so what goes around comes around!!
