"No one is sure." That was Rogers Redding's sentiment in ye olde radio and internet room last week at SEC Media Days regarding new clock rules.

Alabama/Virginia Tech remains a distinct possibility for the 2009 Georgia Dome opener, according to Barnhart. Saban versus Beamer: Scowl Factor 12, at the very least.
