Welcome to the Sandestin Hilton

Hey everyone. I am on site for one of the least glamorous events of my professional career: The SEC Spring Meetings.

I'll spend much of the next four days loitering in a lobby aiming to talk with the league's movers and shakers.

For instance, I met Kentucky coach Joker Phillips earlier. He was just walking around with his wife and in a great mood. That's the best way to talk with college football coach.

Being a Kentucky graduate has its (rare) advantages.

I'll provide updates when conditions merit.

UPDATE: Just freed myself from the basement. I had no internet down there. I spoke with Jay Jacobs earlier and saw Tony Barbee, but I don't have anything to report from either guy.

My plan is to give you all a run-down of the best things heard today, which includes talk about expansion, Urban Meyer talking about his new life perspective, Saban's talk, a funny story from Derek Dooley.

Thanks for all you do, Jay G.

Is Slive's address to the media going to interfere with our regular segment? If so, shall we re-schedule now?

Fondly,
Biff

Will they discuss expansion at the SEC meeting or wait and see what the big10+1 does.

Hmmm, I wonder if they will do anything to formalize the "givin him the business rule". That is something I think we can all get behind.

Steve:

What's the "giving him the business" rule?

Oh. Pretty sure he ripped that off from an NFL ref in the early 80s.

Never mind. Just got a twit about it. Don't follow the tennis stuff.

Steve, it's OK that you don't follow tennis. You don't have to call yourself a twit.

Just updated the blog a bit.

It has been insanely busy around here. I had no idea.

THT,

You're getting too old to just give away months. Days are a stretch, if you ask me, but months seems like helping to dig your own grave to me.

Brandon had fancypants vacations. I was lucky to go to 1 Braves game or camping in a summer.

PF - I have no use for June and July any more.

JGT - I like the photo. Emerald Ballroom B is the place to be. We appreciate the updates and looking forward to hearing Dooley's funny story.. let me guess, it involves Saban getting kicked in the "lower abdomen"? I'm laughing already!!!
