Covering Dixie Like Mildew: Tyler Bray, Aaron Murray, Cam Newton, and more

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

How You Remind Me. North Carolina head football coach Butch Davis says Tennessee freshman quarterback Tyler Bray reminds him of Ken Dorsey, the Miami QB who went on to help the Hurricanes win the BCS Title in the 2001 season. Davis and The Tar Heels face Bray and the Volunteers in tonight's Music City Bowl. (Go Vols XTra)

Bold prediction of the day. Georgia wide receiver A.J. Green claims that Bulldog QB Aaron Murray will be a Heisman candidate in 2011. Too bad Green will probably be in the NFL next season, and will probably not be there to help make his claim a reality. (The Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Should I Stay or Should I Go? Georgia outside linebacker Justin Houston is going to have to decide soon whether to remain at UGA, or enter the NFL Draft (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

"So this is Christmas, and what have you done?"  Auburn QB Cam Newton volunteered for a couple of hours at the annual Hosea Feed the Hungry Christmas dinner for homeless people on Christmas Day. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

"The Year of the Tiger!" A look back at Auburn's 2010 season. Enjoy it before the NCAA changes its mind about Cam Newton, Tiger fans. (Track 'Em Tigers)

Meat eaters. South Carolina and FSU team members enjoyed a night at Fogo de Chao, a Brazilian steakhouse in Atlanta getting ready for the Chick-fil-A bowl. Apparently that "Eat More Chicken" thing isn't working as well as Truett Cathy would have hoped here. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

Yes, Steve Spurrier, you're going to have to sit through hearing the Tomahawk Chop again at the Chick-fil-A Bowl when your South Carolina team faces FSU. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

The End of the Line. Alabama senior QB Greg McElroy's college playing days will soon be over. They'll be over  in the  Capital One Bowl on New Years Day, 2011, to be exact. (
