Now comes troublesome news for a few other programs.
- Alabama assistant Lance Thompson, noted as a top recruiter, is leaving the Crimson Tide to coach at Tennessee. This is on the heels of news last week that defensive coordinator Kevin Steele left for Clemson.
- Florida's do-everything wideout Percy Harvin is headed to the NFL. Many underclassmen have declared for the NFL Draft this year. I wonder how many of them are doing so because of persistent rumors that future rookies soon will see their contracts slashed.
