Destin, Fla. – Greetings from the Emerald Coast. I’m covering the SEC Spring Meetings this week at the Sandestin Hilton. It’s the yearly gathering of the league’s presidents, athletic directors and coaches.
It’s expected to be an eventful week. Perhaps you’ve heard a thing or two about something called “over-signing?” Well, they’re supposed to introduce legistlation here this week that will outlaw that practice and address other issues regarding “roster management,” including grayshirting and midyear and summer enrollment.
But that’s not all. There are several proposed changes for men’s basketball, including the elimination of divisions from the tournament seeding process and expanding the conference schedule to 18 or more games. And other stuff. Here’s a link to a summary of topics expected to be discussed over the next four days.
In the meantime, I’m hoping to get an audience with Georgia coaches Mark Richt and Mark Fox later this morning. Why don’t you let me know if there are any specific questions you’d like for me to ask them? If they’re reasonable I’ll try to get them answered for you.
Check back here all day for news updates.
