Missouri is getting a new look to its custom block style “M” on its helmet. Athletic Director Mike Alden said in a letter released on the Missouri website that “There will be changes and the look will focus much more on our logo than the block M”. So, SEC fans, if you think you know what Missouri’s helmets look like, think again. It will all change now. This will all be done July 1st when Missouri officially joins the SEC. [MU Tigers]

Alabama received a commitments from Grant Hill and Tyren Jones. Hill is a 6’5″, 330lb offensive guard. Hill was in Tuscaloosa over the weekend at Alabama’s Junior Day, and he thought very highly of the coaching staff and decided to make it official by committing to the Tide. Jones, on the other hand, chose Alabama over Tennessee and Auburn. Jones is 5’9″, 202lb star from Georgia. [Al.com]

Florida head coach Will Muschamp opens practice for fans for the first time during his tenure. Practice will be open March 16th and 17th. Not only do the fans get to attend for the first time, but the media gets to attend for the first time as well. Tickets are $5, but students and boosters get in free. The media is quite ecstatic about this because they have all been chomping at the bit, with Muschamp being ever so protective of his information. [Palm Beach Post]

The University of Georgia puts Sanders Commings on probation, community service and anger management. Commings, as well all know, was arrested for domestic violence/simple battery on January 21st. A violation of his probation will likely result in suspension from the university. His probation ends August 17th. [AJC]

Former Tennessee running back Tauren Poole has a ton to prove at the NFL Combine. Like two Tennessee running backs before him in Arian Foster and Montario Hardesty, Poole will try and prove he belongs at the combine. We all know Foster’s career has just blossomed in Houston after being a mildly regarded prospect coming out of college. Back to Poole: his best season for Tennessee was his junior year when he ran for 1,034 yards and 11 touchdowns. [The Tennessean]

Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin is starting spring practice late and ending it later for the simple fact that he wants his players to get more time leading up to spring practice with new strength and conditioning coach Larry Jackson. In addition, Sumlin just hired his defensive line coach in Terry Price this week. So, the staff is still getting to know each other, and it will give them time to gel before practice starts.

BCS plus-one system is gaining momentum right now. This past Tuesday, 11 conference commissioners, Notre Dame AD Jack Swarbrick, two BCS officials and a BCS attorney all met to decide what the postseason will look like in 2014. There is zero talk of eight or 16 team playoffs – rather they are discussing, a plus-one in its entirety. There are certainly several different ways a plus-one can be addressed. This is exciting news! [CBS Sports]
