Some Links - and thoughts - for a Monday

* A good look at the John Brady firing on Fox Sports. This year will be the 5th time in 11 seasons that Brady's team has finished 6th in the SEC West. At a school with the resources and facilities LSU has, that's inexcusable, even if you do throw in a Final 4 trip once a decade. I do disagree with the writer's assertion that Ole Miss' Andy Kennedy will be the head coach next year. For one thing, Kennedy may be on the cusp of something special in Oxford and want to be around when it come to fruition. Plus, USC's Tim Floyd is well connected in Louisiana and could slide right in comfortably. I'd also imagine that Anthony Grant ranks higher on their list than Kennedy as they may hire him in hopes to recreate what Bruce Pearl has at Tennessee.
* A couple of links from ESPN about the omnipresent bubble lingering over a handful of SEC teams as well as how Bracketologist Joe Lunardi sees the field. 5 teams in from the SEC at this point, though Ole Miss will need to wake up if it wants to join Mississippi State, Arkansas, Tennessee, and Vanderbilt in the Dance.
* Rivals breaks down the SEC
