1 » ESPN’s SEC blogger Chris Low is reporting that Ole Miss Rebels defensive coordinator Tyrone Nix has already met with Florida Gators head coach Urban Meyer and is the front-runner to replace Charlie Strong at his old position. Though OGGOA learned Wednesday night that Meyer was considering looking outside the program for Strong’s replacement, we were not informed that a meeting had already taken place with a candidate (unless said meeting occurred Thursday).

2 » Freshman left tackle Xavier Nixon and redshirt freshman defensive tackle Omar Hunter were named to the 2009 Freshman All-SEC Team on Thursday by the Southeastern Conference’s head coaches. Nixon, who played in nine games, started the last four games of the season for the Gators and is the first true freshman to start at left tackle for Florida since 1992.
