SEC sets future hoops tournament sites
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - The Southeastern Conference has set future sites for the men's and women's basketball tournaments in Georgia and Tennessee.
The league announced Wednesday that the men's tournament will be held at Nashville's Sommet Center in 2013 and in Atlanta's Georgia Dome the following season.
The men's tournament will be played in Nashville, Atlanta and New Orleans over the next three seasons.
The Sommet Center will also host the women's tournament in 2011 and 2012. The women's event will be played in 2010, 2013 and 2014 at The Arena at Gwinnett Center in Duluth, Ga.
Romo's aim: Better shape, smarter, more leadership
CARROLLTON, Texas (AP) - Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is taking a new approach to conditioning for being in as good shape in December -- as in September.
Romo today said it's not only dealing with the game -- but dealing with "all the extra stuff that goes with it."
He made the comments on the final day of a 3-day minicamp in Carrollton that was the team's last official get-together before training camp.
Romo is no longer the happy-go-lucky guy still riding the high of going from unknown backup to Pro Bowler with a pinup girlfriend. He still dates Jessica Simpson, but these days more people are talking about his 0-2 playoff record than his two trips to Hawaii.
More damaging is that Dallas missed the playoffs last season.
Team owner Jerry Jones likes the way Romo is coming along, and that goes for all areas - ball-protection, conditioning, leadership and everything else.
