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

I fought the law, and the law won. 
The latest news on the arrest of Georgia running back Isaiah Crowell on firearm-related charges. He's reportedly been released on a $6,000 bond. No word if it was Josh-Harvey Clemons who bonded him out, but it's pretty doubtful. (The Athens Banner-Herald)

This behavior's not unique.

I'm 18 and...dangit! I already used that once this column! 
Vanderbilt's Sept. 22 road game against Georgia appears on The Gainesville Sun's "Top 25 SEC Games" list at no. 18. That may be the first in the history of both Vanderbilt and the number 18. (The Gainesville Sun)

Send Away the Tigers.
