Covering Dixie Like Mildew: Florida-Alabama, A.J. Green, South Carolina, and...Appalachian State?

(Covering Dixie Like Mildew is the SWRT roundup of SEC  news, with the occasional pesky Southern school from another conference.) 
Headline of the week: "Sinners vs. Saints: Unlike Gators, Tide players largely have avoided off-the-field trouble." Did somebody actually go there? (

Alabama-Florida is a rivalry of circumstance. Finally, somebody gets it right. (Alligator Army)

Can A.J. Green's return from suspension stop Georgia's losing streak? Mark Richt better hope so. Otherwise, it's going be a long flight back from Colorado. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Why should South Carolina QB Stephen Garcia start against Alabama next week? Well, why not? (Garnet and Black Attack)

Movin' on Up? Appalachian State may be looking to move up to the FBS. Which will guarantee Greg McGarity won't sign a deal to have the Mountaineers play Georgia. (

And the finalists for Ole Miss Mascot are: "Rebel Bear," "Rebel Land Shark," and "Hoddy Toddy" (two hideous ideas for a mascot unceremoniously merged into one). I'm for the Land Shark, but only if the Ole Miss marching band agree to play "Margaritaville" after every Running Rebel touchdown. (NEMS360)
