SEC Headlines – 7/21/11 Part One

Hope you liked yesterday’s coverage of SEC Media Days.  (If so, tell a friend.)  Today, we’ll be bringing you all of the news from Hoover, more live blogs when the coaches hit the podium, reaction from around the league, and all the other non-Media Days news items involving SEC schools.

We’ll get started with some headlines…


1.  ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” has studied the video LSU purchased from Willie Lyles last year and found that some of the players shown were already playing college football when the Tigers received the DVDs.  ESPN says there would be little value to the video.  Uh and Oh.

2.  This on the heels of Mike Slive’s “agenda for change” speech.

3.  Even Gregg Doyel of CBSSports.com says Slive’s proposals are so sensible they won’t work.

4.  Slive told CBSSports.com that you can win these days without cheating.  (Obviously.  Hyperbolic question.)

5.  Here’s ESPN’s Media Days’ Notebook.

6.  Andy Staples of SI.com says Slive’s suggestions are unlikely to be implemented.

7.  Dennis Dodd of SI.com — Lord High Executioner apparently — says the media has given Steve Spurrier a pass on the Stephen Garcia situation.  (Yep, ’cause no other college player has ever boozed it up.  Somebody alert me when Garcia steals something or assaults someone.  Then this site will jump on the “run him off” bandwagon.)

8.  FoxSports.com reports “SEC to raise academic standards.”  No.  Slive proposed that all schools across the NCAA do that.  The SEC isn’t expected to got out on a limb on its own.  (Or maybe Slive is planning to do that and FoxSports learned of it by hacking his phone.)

9.  Will Muschamp is “a player’s guy.”

10.  The Gainesville Sun lists its best and worst from Day One.
