Covering Christmas Like Mildew: Butch Jones, Tavarres King, Les Miles, and more.

And in Atlanta, Georgia, there's peace on Earth tonight.

Merry Christmas y'all. Kind of taking it slow today, it being Christmas and all. Plus I sprained my ankle yesterday, so I've kind of been in a little pain today. Still didn't stop me from spending some time with my twin nephews for their first Christmas, though.

Here's a special Christmas wrap-up for you.
