Simplicity of design at the highest levels of sport has its obvious advantages: it compensates for the ludicrous speed of the game, and allows players capable of functioning at the furthest frontier of competence to stretch a bit further in the fractions of a second they have to perform.

With the first round bye, LSU gets to relax and watch the other teams battle for a chance to face us. In the morning session, it's #9 Ole Miss v #4 UK at 9:30 CDT, with #7 Miss St v #6 ARK to follow 30 minutes after that. The lowest seeded winner will play LSU tomorrow in the 2nd game of the morning session.

Paul Mainieri - Pre Tournament Teleconference

Notes from the conference: Ross has been cleared to start working out, but Mainieri wont let him start squating for a few more days. Won't be availible until late this weekend, if that. Wednesday's starter will be Nola for an inning or 2, then the full bullpen, holding Gausman for the Thursday start. No update on Snickeris, will know later today. There's somebody talking from the fictional town of Gannett, Louisiana. Try to control your rage.

The Big 12 and Southeastern Conferences have announced a five-year agreement for their football champions to meet in a postseason bowl game following the 2014 season. The champions of the two conferences will be in the matchup unless one or both are selected to play in the new four-team model to determine the national championship. Should that occur, another deserving team from the conference(s) would be selected for the game. "A new January bowl tradition is born," said SEC Commissioner Mike Slive. "This new game will provide a great matchup between the two most successful conferences in the BCS era and will complement the exciting postseason atmosphere created by the new four-team model. Most importantly, it will provide our student-athletes, coaches and fans with an outstanding bowl experience." Specific details, including host site(s), will be announced at a later date.
