Covering Dixie Like Mildew: 'Bama QB "controversy," Cam Newton's heart, and more

(Covering Dixie Like Mildew is the SWRT roundup of SEC  news, with the occasional pesky Southern school from another conference.) 
 Quarterback controversy at Alabama? Some  'Bama fans seem to be turning on Greg McElroy after recent struggles, and calling for back-up A.J. McCarron to start. Fickle, fickle, fickle. (Roll 'Bama Roll)

I'll take "Things I don't want to hear my team's starting quarterback say for $1,000, " Alex. Auburn's Cam Newton says "My heart is still at Florida because of the long-lasting relationships I have with my teammates there. Leaving them was the hardest part." (ESPN)

OOPS! Seven South Carolina players received "impermissibly paid" meals last summer. (The Post and Courier)

Florida Fans should let Urban Meyer fix the Gators. Because Pat Dooley said so. (The Gainesville Sun)

This just in. Bobby Petrino not popular with his former assistant coaches from his brief stopover with the Atlanta Falcons. (

Not ready for prime time? Tennessee's Tyler Bray isn't quite ready to stand up to competition like Alabama or South Carolina, says Chris Martin. (

Phone calls I would have loved to have had a wiretap on. Barbara Dooley once called up then-LSU head football coach Nick Saban to complain that a practice scheduled for Christmas Eve would mean her son (then Saban's assistant coach) Derek Dooley wouldn't be home for Christmas. (
