Covering Dixie Like Mildew: Toomer's Corner, Alabama's jumbotron "violation",

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

Tag teamin'. Gene Chizik and Nick Saban sent out a joint press release condemning the poisioning of  the oak trees of Toomer's Corner. (al.com)

Do the Right Thing. A group called Times for Toomer's is raising money to help pay to replace the oaks of Toomer's Corner. (College Football Talk)

My Heart Will Go On. Even though the Oaks of Toomer's Corner may not survive, Auburn fans will keep their legacies alive through the tree's seedlings. (WAAY)

I didn't do it, no one saw me do it, there's no way you can prove anything! Alabama says that an incident where football recruit Barry J. Sanders and his father (the Barry Sanders) were shown on the jumbotron alongside Nick Saban at a recent Alabama basketball game does not constitute an NCAA secondary violation. (Rivals.com)


I can ease your pain. Get you on your feet again.  Tennessee hires Logan Merrit to be an associate athletic trainer. (Go Vols Xtra)

Oh no he didn't! A Georgia blogger theorizes that UGA's VI, VII, and VIII were all poisoned by Florida fans irate over the Dawg's "Touchdown Celebration" during the 2007 iteration of the World's Largest (CENSORED BY MICHAEL ADAMS).  Not. Very. Funny. (The Grit Tree)


BASKETBALL 

We finally got a piece of the pie. Alabama takes at least a piece of the SEC West men's basketball title after a 69-56 win over Arkansas. (The Crimson White)

Vols in the Fall. Tennessee takes another tumble in men's basketball as Georgia beats the Vols 69-63 on Saturday. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)
