Covering Dixie Like Mildew: A.J. Green, Mark Ingram, Tennessee and more

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

A.J. Green slipping into the Twilight Zone. There's still no word on the Georgia wide receiver's eligibility, despite the story that he would be cleared today. (ESPN)

Ingram questionable for Penn St.-Alabama game? The 2009 Heisman-winning tailback missed Tuday's practice, and Alabama head coach Nick Saban pretty much Ingram's status for the game depends on how he rehabs. (

His Hairness gets Johnny Majors approval. Majors, who has rarely made appearances in Neyland Stadium in the past few years, was at Derek Dooley's first game as Tennessee head football coach.

“I’d gotten to know Derek during a couple of coaching clinics the last few years,” Majors said before the start of the Vols’ 50-0 victory over UT-Martin. “He’s a good man, a talented coach. I’ve had my eye on him for two or three years, and he’s a perfect fit for us.”

Tigers vs. Ducks. LSU will be facing Oregon to kick off the 2011 season for the Cowboys Classic at Jerry Jones' Heathen Temple to His Avarice Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, TX. (And the Valley Shook)

Don't sell your USF-Florida tickets to USF fans, Gator fans. Because Alligator Army said so. (Alligator Army)

Is Jacksonville State the new Appalachian State? Considering that Ole Miss isn't quite in the category of Michigan that would probably be a "no." (Mr. College Football)

History lesson of the Day. Roll 'Bama Roll features the covers of the programs for 12 of the 13 meetings between Alabama and Penn State. (Roll 'Bama Roll)
