The big SEC news of the day is Tim Tebow's expected and confirmed return to the Gators for the '09 season. No shocker there.
The Palm Beach Post reports that Percy Harvin is leaning towards returning as well, but I'll believe that when I see it. And the Orlando Sentinel reports that Brandon Spikes is leaning towards staying as of 4:15 today. Although, oddly enough Spikes didn't attend the Gators national title celebration today in Gainesville. I still expect both to bolt once the giddy glow of the title wears off a little. If not the Gators will return 11 on defense and 8 on offense. They have until Sunday to announce.
Their personnel is formidable, but there could be more coaching changes. Their offensive line coach and new offensive coordinator Steve Addazio is considered a finalist for the Boston College head coaching job (Source: Boston Globe). Losing Dan Mullen (QB Coach / OC) doesn't really matter for '09 because Tebow is on auto-pilot at this point. But losing your top two internal offensive minds could hurt play calling a bit.
