A week from today the SEC Media Days will be winding down and the 2009 football season will finally be upon us. The stretch from June 1st to mid-July can be pretty boring, but that’s all going to change next week.
And remember that MrSEC will be THE place on the web for you to get all of the stories from across the SEC in one place, everyday.
In addition to never missing a story, by the start of football season we’ll also be launching several new features for you to use and enjoy.
When it comes to following the news — and understanding what it means for your favorite school — MrSEC.com is the place to be. And we appreciate you for stopping by.
Now, to some quick links from across the league:
The Washington Redskins used their third round pick in the 2010 NFL draft to select former Kentucky defensive end Jeremy Jarmon in yesterday’s supplemental draft.
The Redskins say they had him graded as a second round pick.
Urban Meyer, who coached at Utah, doesn’t believe the Utes could “survive the grind” of a week-in, week-out SEC football schedule. How ’bout them apples, Orrin Hatch?
Yesterday, a juco All-American quarterback was supposedly heading to Tennessee. But then his junior college removed the story of his decision from its website. So did he sign? “No comment.”
Juco quarterbacks usually aren’t very successful in the SEC.
UT receiver Denarius Moore will be out for the next eight to 10 weeks after having surgery to repair a broken bone in his foot.
Former NFL coaches have become the “in” thing in the SEC.
Former Carolina and Arkansas coach Lou Holtz will be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame on Saturday.
Want proof that the SEC is shaky at the quarterback position again this year? Carolina’s Stephen Garcia was named third team preseason All-SEC (in a tie with Kentucky’s Mike Hartline).
Cornerback Brandon Boykin says Georgia’s freshman tight end Orson Charles is “a manchild.” He’s also the only player in the leauge named “Orson.”
Former Georgia coach Jim Donnan will be inducted into the CFHOF along with Holtz this weekend.
Tony Barnhart of The AJC talks about Donnan, UT’s receiver worries and he wonders which coach didn’t vote for Tim Tebow on the All-SEC team.
According to The Gainesville Sun, Ole Miss quarterback Jevan Snead is the fourth best player in the SEC.
Pat Dooley of The Gainesville Sun ranks the SEC’s coaches from 1 to 12.
UF linebacker Dustin Doe will have to appear in court next month for “knowingly driving with a suspended license.”
Incoming freshman running back Mike Gillislee has impressed Florida’s coaches.
Alabama linebacker/defensive end Brandon Fanney has asked for permission to transfer.
Former Auburn offensive lineman Chaz Ramsey is suing former AU offensive line coach Hugh Nall and a former Tiger trainer over an injury that ended his career.
The fact that Ole Miss’ football program will be featured in a reality tv show could be a huge recruiting boost for Houston Nutt.
Auburn’s Tommy Trott is back from knee surgery and ready for some contact.
Here’s a profile of incoming Arkansas freshman defensive end Colton Nash. (That sounds like an 80s detective show, doesn’t it?)
Ole Miss strength coach Don Decker likes what he’s seen from the Rebels this offseason.
The 10th most important Rebel in 2009 is defensive end Kentrell Lockett. So says The Jackson Clarion-Ledger at least.
Dan Mullen has aced the public speaker part of his job… now it’s time to start coaching.
