I think it's mentioned in SGYY somewhere too. Let me go find it.

Is it something like the Eight Friends?


I also remember reading something to that effect. It was like a group of people from Jingzhou who were adept at poetry, or scholars or something. Also, I think it was called The Eight Worthies of Jing, or something close. I can't remember where I saw that, though.
