Thursday Morning Dawg Bites: Where Loyalties Lie Edition

I wanted to be serious and write a nice caption here, but all I could come up with was "Herp Derp Derpitty Dippidy Derp."

Good morning Dawg fans. The funny thing about this morning's Dawg Bites is that I had planned to talk about Peyton Manning and the classy way in which he handled himself yesterday after being released from the Indianapolis Colts. I had this long diatribe planned out (and even typed out really) and then I thought to myself "Nope."

So the lesson today is even the best intentions of noting a great moment in sports can succumb to collegiate affiliation. In related news: Tennessee sucks.

Now, let's get you guys some links...after the jump of course.

The SEC Men's Basketball Tournament begins today (Dawgs play tonight against Mississippi State so come back later for the open comment thread shameless plug shameless plug shameless plug) and our friends over at the Georgia Sports Blog have hosted a nice roundtable discussing the past season for the SEC as a whole.

Bernie's got a post up looking at conference realignment and the scheduling woes that come with it. I agree with Bernie, and so does pretty much everyone else, when we say that this has nothing to do with anything but money. It's a shame, really. Also, if you haven't already, be sure to check out Kyle's post on the subject as well from earlier today.

I've talked before about how much I like the site Pro Dawgs because it allows us all to keep up with former Dawgs who've gone pro in something other than the real world. Anyway, they've got a post up today regarding Richard Seymour, who reworked his contract in Oakland to clear up some cap space.

Finally, we've got some Morning Coffee from Gentry Estes of Dawgs247. This morning's offering previews the SEC Men's Bball Tourney with quotes from each of the coaches who have teams playing today.

Anyway, it's a slow news day so all I have to give you to close it out is this awesome GIF from this past weekend's SNL. I sincerely hope you find some type of use for it as you go throughout your day.

Until next time kids.

Be safe.
