Posted by ESPN.com's Chris Low

Taking the temperature around the SEC:

  • Florida's Matt Patchan, who filled a void at defensive tackle last season, will move back to offense in 2009 and compete for one of the Gators' starting tackle jobs.

  • The NCAA has denied the eligibility waiver for former South Carolina quarterback Chris Smelley, who had hoped to be eligible to play baseball right away at Alabama.
