--Bad news for my Hawks, who will be without Al Horford for at least the three games of this week's west-coast road swing (Suns, Clippers and Warriors). The former Florida Gator suffered a bone bruise to his knee in Friday's blowout loss at Orlando.
--Bad news for the rest of the SEC and the entire NCAA field: UF's Tim Tebow is returning for his senior season.
--Bad news for SEC haters who thought the conference was down in 2008. SEC schools went 6-2 both SU and ATS in the bowl games.
--Bad news for ACC point guards, who have to go up against Wake Forest's Jeff Teague the rest of the year. He's real nasty.
--Bad news for UF backers in college hoops this year: The Gators are 2-7 ATS.
--I agree with the Orlando Sentinel's Mike Bianchi on this topic.
