Covering Dixie Like Mildew: Alabama vs Michigan? Florida St., Virginia Tech

 (Covering Dixie Like Mildew is the SWRT roundup of SEC and ACC news, with the occasional pesky Southern school from another conference.)    

Alabama vs. Michigan in Dallas? Nothing's written in stone yet, but a neutral site match-up between the Tide and the Wolverines might happen in Jerry Jones Heathen Temple to His Own Avarice Cowboys Stadium in Dallas in 2012. (

Jimbo Fisher drops the hammer on Jarmon Forston. FSU wide receiver Jarmon Fortson has been dismissed from the team for failing a drug test and for  "multiple attitude and behavioral problems throughout his two years in Tallahassee." (Tomahawk Nation)

One less pizza bowl.  Papa John's will not renew its sponsorship of the The Bowl in Birmingham. The bowl featuring an SEC vs. Big East match-up  is  being called the Birmingham Bowl,  until another sponsor can be found. (

How to beat Boise State. Gobbler Country looks at how then Fresno State running back  (and current San Diego Charger) Ryan Matthews was able to break through Boise State's defense last year to score three touchdowns, and ponders if Virginia Tech's Ryan Williams can do the same in the Hokies' season opener against the Broncos. Sadly for the Hokies, Fresno St. lost that game. (Gobbler Country)

Should Georgia be worried about Florida this year? Probably. (Dawg Sports)
