    Who is coming the SEC women's tournament next week in Little Rock?
    I'll be there and I was wanting to post amusing running threads on the hotness of the intern help and how many Diet Dr Peppers people could drink in one day.
    You know, typical SEC running thread material.

    I'm guessing the AJC and the Tennessean will not be there. :)

    SEC interns do tend to run hot.
    I might learn how to post pictures just for the event.
    Of course, I'm kinda wondering who will actually be here.
    SEC says they've been flooded with requests, but a fair chunk of the major SEC player papers don't intend on covering it.

    Since Arkansas isn't really driving distance from anywhere other than maybe the Mississippi schools, I really wonder how many of the hometown papers will cover this at all.

    Georgia - Athens, Macon, Atlanta - Will be surprised if any cover it.
    Tennessee - Knoxville, Chattanoogo, Nashville - Probably Knoxville
    Florida - Gainesville, Orlando, Jville, Tampa, St. Pete - Almost certainly no one.
    Arkansas - Obviously all the local papers will be there.
    Ole Miss - I'm assuming Memphis will be there. Clarion Ledger? I don't know.
    Mississippi State - Maybe someone from Memphis covers both Mississippi schools.
    LSU - Baton Rouge? Maybe. Times Picayune? I doubt it.
    Vandy - Not if the Tennessean isn't going.
    Auburn - Maybe one person from the Birmingham paper goes to cover both Alabama schools. Same deal for Mobile. I doubt Montgomery or any of the other smaller papers go.
    Alabama - See Auburn...
    Kentucky - I would tend to doubt they'll be anyone from Louisville or Lexington there.
    South Carolina - I seriously doubt The State or any of the locals make that trip.

    Well, as poin would say, pics or GTFO.

    However, I seem to recall someone posting similar type pics from a similar type event in the past (perhaps the same SEC tournament even?) that weren't thought of too fondly by the mods.

    I won't be offended if you PM them to me, though. ;D

    Just guessing, but I would bet there will be better looking women in the stands at the SEC men's tournament.

    No chance in hell AJC covers it. They haven't even been staffing UGA home games and didn't staff the UGA game vs. Clemson at Gwinnett (suburban Atlanta).

    The real question is whether they will staff the women's subregional in Gwinnett.

    How many papers travel with a women's college hoops team regularly (all or most) for non-NCAA tournament games? Knoxville used to. I'm guessing a few of the Connecticut papers do. I could see one of the NC papers doing it for either NC State or Duke. Anyone else.

    I'd guess that not counting Arkansas and Memphis papers, there might be five other (non-student) papers there.
