SEC Headlines – 10/7/11

It’s going to be a quickie kind of Friday for us.  We’ve already posted our thumbnail projections for this weekend’s games and the finale of our 10-part series: “Expansion By The Numbers” will be going up a little later.

In between, some headlines from around the league:

1.  So far, Alabama has been able to avoid mistakes this season.

2.  The Crimson Tide’s O-line continues to bond, continues to improve.

3.  Auburn’s run game has revived the Tigers…

4.  But after five games, the squad is still a bit of a mystery.

5.  Auburn will come at Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson “with a lot of respect” tomorrow.

6.  The Razorbacks are “not a very good tackling team.”  (Good think Jake Bequette will be back.)

7.  Florida’s Will Muschamp will be returning to the scene of his early success when he takes the field at LSU tomorrow.

8.  Les Miles says the Louisianans on his roster seem to “care more” about wearing the purple and gold.

9.  MSU coaches sold James Carmon on a move from left tackle to right guard by talking about his NFL draft value.

10.  When it comes to the Bulldogs’ offense, there’s plenty of blame to go around.

11.  Ole Miss tailback Jeff Scott — all 5-7, 175 pounds of him — is putting up some big numbers.

12.  Houston Nutt says his teams needs this weekend’s open date.

13.  Florida’s goal at LSU — win the line of scrimmage.

14.  Freshman quarterback Jeff Driskel has had a lot of success in life (but making the first start of his career in Tiger Stadium is a tall order).

15.  Mark Richt revealed this morning that his offensive line will feature a new starting lineup tomorrow.

16.  UGA receiver and Tennessee native Marlon Brown wants more boos from the Knoxville crowd.

17.  Kentucky offensive coordinator Randy Sanders isn’t as popular as he used to be.  (Amazing what losing Mike Hartline, Randall Cobb and Derrick Locke will do to a man’s reputation.)

18.  UK isn’t getting the production the recruiting rankings suggested.

19.  John Calipari had to pay off some Memphis attorneys who were threatening — of behalf of “certain ticket holders — to sue him for leaving the Tiger basketball program on probation.  (What a bad precedent this sets.)

20.  A look at the numbers shows that whether it’s Stephen Garcia under center or not, the South Carolina passing game has struggled under Steve Spurrier.

21.  Bruce Ellington’s role may expand in Carolina’s offense.

22.  Tennessee has played four games… and has but one interception on the season.

23.  Quarterbacks Tyler Bray and Aaron Murray will be fighting for a “quality win” on Saturday.

24.  Unlike Tennessee, Vanderbilt has used pressure to help tally a nation’s best 14 interceptions.

25.  Vandy might shuffle its offensive line against Alabama tomorrow.
