Covering Dixie Like Mildew: South Carolina, Mississippi State, The Heisman race, and more

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

Gamecocks ready to take the punishment? Steve Spurrier says that if the NCAA gives South Carolina the smackdown over the Weslye Saunders situation, it will accept the penalties handed down without protest. (

Is Mississippi State a trap game for Florida? Coming after Alabama and LSU games on October 16, and just before the Gators buy week, a loss here could derail the chances for a BCS title. (Team Speed Kills)

Tony Barnhart's Heisman hopefuls.  Barnhart placed Arkansas'  Ryan Mallett at the top of his list potential Heisman winners. Last year's winner, Alabama's Mark Ingram, comes in at number three. (Mr. College Football)

More than just a mock game. Not only did Tennessee hold a mock game in Neyland Stadium, the team went through traditional pre-game rituals, including the "Vol Walk" and the reading of General Robert Neyland's football maxims. (Go Vols Xtra)

Urban Meyer's Town Hall meeting. Florida held it's first annual "Student Town Hall Meeting" for students with Urban Meyer and members of his coaching staff in attendance. Needless to say, the media weren't allowed in. (Only Gators Get Out Alive, Swamp Things)
