SEC Headlines – 6/1/10

1.  Former Alabama backup quarterback Star Jackson is transferring to play for a former Alabama coach — Bill Curry at Georgia State.

2.  This writer believes Nick Saban is head and shoulders above every other football coach in the SEC.  (He also has a lot of respect for Steve Spurrier, ranks Dan Mullen higher than I would have expected, and believes Derek Dooley ranks at the bottom of the list.)

3.  Phil Steele thinks Ryan Mallett and Arkansas are in line for a very, very good season.

4.  Former Mississippi State athletic director Larry Templeton still serves the SEC as “consultant to the commissioner for television.”

5.  Manny Diaz has gone from behind-the-scenes media guy at ESPN to defensive coordinator at MSU in 12 years.

6.  Georgia cornerback Vance Cuff’s 40-time (which we told you about earlier this morning) would have been the best at this year’s NFL combine.

7.  John Clay of The Lexington Herald-Leader wrote a piece over the weekend covering the NCAA’s investigation into Eric Bledsoe.  From the looks of the emails he received, most Kentucky fans don’t want to know about the story and don’t believe it should be covered.  If that doesn’t prove my point from yesterday about “blind faith” in coaches, I don’t know what does. 

     Man 1:  “Hey, buddy, your house is on fire!” 

     Man 2: “Shut the hell up, muckraker, and stop trying to stir up trouble… how dare you talk about my house!” 

     Man 1 then watches Man 2 burn up along with his house.

8.  South Carolina basketball would be better off in the SEC West.

9.  Tennessee fans are hoping tight end signee Mychal Rivera can have an impact this fall.

10.  This writer believe John Calipari is “just too slick for college basketball.”

11.  It’s time for a number of former high-profile signees to start shining across the SEC.

UPDATE — 12.  Meet the SEC’s most irreplaceable players.

13.  Don’t expect much to be said officially, but expansion is expected to come up at this week’s SEC meetings in Destin.

14.  Many feel the SEC is in a position of power and doesn’t have to do anything.

15.  As we’ve noted in our own “Expounding On Expansion” series, there are a lot of different opinions about how much interest Texas and Texas A&M showed in joining the SEC 20 years ago.

16.  If the SEC expands, Texas is the goal.

17.  Tony Barnhart of The AJC has five questions regarding the SEC meetings which kickoff today:

* Do you think expansion will come up?
* Will the football coaches finally approve an early signing period?
* Is Mississippi State’s cowbell going to be banned?
* Will basketball eliminate divisional play?
* Will Alabama get any relief in its football schedule?
