Covering Dixie: Bret Bielema, A'Shawn Robinson, Tray Matthews and...Jerry Jones?

Covering Dixie Like Mildew - The SEC. It's what your conference wants to be like when it grows up.

Bret Bielema is "The Answer" for the Arkansas football program.
Because Robbie Neiswanger said so. Now I can't get the image of Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema with Alan Iverson-like cornrolls. (The Arkansas News)

Stand By Your Man.
On a related front, Dallas Cowboys owner and former Arkansas offensive lineman Jerry Jones also says Bielema "is the answer" for Arkansas. (The Arkansas Democrat Gazette)

And here's to you, Mr. Robinson.

Get 'em before they're gone. 
Auburn's SEC title and BCS title game appearance and the hiring of first-year men's head basketball coach Bruce Pearl have resulted in ticket sales for both programs "approaching a record pace." (

I'm going to Kansas City. 
Members of Florida's University of Athletic Association traveled to Kansas City to attend a Sporting KC MLS soccer game in order to see how to improve the football gameday experience for Gator fans. Hint: don't have abominations like 2013's 4-8 season. (The Gainesville Sun)

Harvey Danger.

"Busta" Rhymes.

The Cup of Life.
Rock M Nation compares SEC programs to World Cup teams. Naturally, Alabama is compared to Spain. The USA gets compared to Texas A&M, which is somewhat uncomfortably appropriate.

Candid Camera.
Andrew Hall provides "footage" of the classroom incident that resulted in former Georgia safety Tray Matthews' dismissal from the Bulldog football program. Funny, I never realized how much Tray Matthews looked like Adam Sandler before. (Dude You Crazy)
