Now You're Getting the Wives Involved

That's Shelley Meyer, wife of Florida coach Urban Meyer. Deep South Sports recently ranked the top-five wives of Southeastern Conference coaches and Shelley was third. Of course, everybody has their taste when it comes to such matters, so the expected firestorm followed, with SEC fans issuing their complaints, Auburn fans to be specific. This resulted with the addition of a sixth wife, Suzanne Tuberville, whose husband Tommy coaches the Tigers. The fuss eventually got the attention of Mobile Press-Register columnist Paul Finebaum, who invited Erik of Deep South to be a guest on his radio show. ... Others have joined the fun. Golden Tornado has an entertaining review of mascots of BCS conference teams. The SEC mascots have been broken into two links: Part 1 and Part 2. Links to carping judgments of mascots of other conferences: Atlantic Coast, Pacific 10, Big Ten, Big 12 and the Big East.
