    The AP will NOT be photo staffing the first three (corrected) days of the SEC baseball tournament.

    Yeah, that's what I said.

    Butch Dill, who strings for AP, is looking for some side work on Thursday and Friday ... but no joy on the first day, he has other plans.

    No surprise. At all. This is the same AP that wasn't staffing University of South Carolina basketball HOME games when they were like 18-5 until I started firing off nasty e-mails. They told me since they weren't ranked they couldn't cover them.

    Then, they started covering them.

    Actually, AP is not photo-staffing the first THREE days of the SEC Tournament. At least that's my understanding. Will be staffing Saturday and Sunday. And if you want to put in a special order, be prepared to take out a loan.

    As Henry said, Butch Dill can shoot Thursday and Friday but not Wednesday. Anybody know a free-lancer who can shoot the Ole Miss game on Wednesday and not charge 1 zillion dollars?

    Rusty, Henry ... any word on whether our Mississippi AP is going to shoot the C-USA tournament in Hattiesburg? Called them tonight and a woman who sounded like she couldn't care less said she'd have to get back to me.

    Lordy, I can't imagine that they would ... Rusty's sister paper in Hattiesburg might have designs on some foto coverage out of there, though.

    The American will be shooting the USM game Wednesday night. Not sure about their plans for the other games. I think they'll put some shots on the wire.
