Covering Dixie Like Mildew - The SEC. What your conference wants to be like when it grows up. 



Cleveland Rocks. Too bad the Browns don't.
Former Alabama starting quarterback A.J. McCarron reportedly worked out for the Cleveland Browns on Wednesday. I'll try to keep my journalistic neutrality up here, and not show my fervent hatred for the "fake" Cleveland Browns who are at least partially responsible for ending David Pollack's playing career.
