Hope everyone is staying safe and warm out in SEC country with all the strong winter storms affecting the region. Stay inside and read up on the interesting nuggets from around the league, of which there are plenty today:
- This first story isn't SEC related but it did occur in SEC country.

- Even though a new coach in Derek Mason is in place, Vanderbilt's recruiting class continues to take hits in the form of decommitments in the wake of James Franklin's departure. Two more happened Tuesday, but the Commodores also got one back.
- In the wake of Jacob Coker's transfer to Alabama, here is a look at 10 quarterbacks who have made a similar move and eventually found success.

- Several Georgia players expressed support for the actions of Northwestern football players who are taking steps to unionize.
- Should Texas A&M retire Johnny Manziel's jersey number (No. 2)? That's a worthwhile question to ask since it appears 2014 recruit Speedy Noil might don it this fall.
- The heir apparent to Connor Shaw as South Carolina's quarterback, Dylan Thompson, says he understands that teammates will be looking at him this offseason which is why he plans to set an example with his work ethic.
- The 40,000 ticket allotment reserved for Tennessee for its 2016 game against Virginia Tech at Bristol Motor Speedway have already been claimed, leading the Volunteers to request even more for the highly-anticipated "Battle at Bristol."
