A quick scan of what (and who) is making headlines in the SEC:
Georgia linebackers coach John Jancek turns down an offer to become South Florida's defensive coordinator. He's at least the third Georgia assistant to turn down overtures from other schools this offseason and remain a member of Mark Richt's staff. Stacy Searels was wooed by Auburn and Rodney Garner by Tennessee.
Monte Kiffin is bubbling over with enthusiasm as he tackles his new challenge at Tennessee. The elder Kiffin also concedes that his son, Lane, "screwed up" with some of his comments about Florida's Urban Meyer.
Pat Dooley of The Gainesville Sun writes that Tennessee, South Carolina and Arkansas are three of the 10 teams in the country where spring practice is critically important this year.
The Iron Bowl trophy returns to Alabama's campus after a six-year hiatus.
Arkansas adds a punter to its 2009 signing class, Briton Forester of Palomar (Calif.) Community College.
