SEC Headlines – 3/20/12

1.  With a BCS title under his belt, Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron enters his second season as a starter with confidence.

2.  Ivory Coast natives and Auburn forwards Willy Kouassi and Bernard Morena have been cleared by Tony Barbee to transfer.  (“… sometimes things don’t fit, and I am disappointed they they felt that this wasn’t the right fit for them.”)

3.  Defensive back Craig Loston is ready to prove his worth at LSU.

4.  Mississippi State AD Scott Stricklin — now searching for a head basketball coach — was very much involved in the search that landed Dan Mullen.  (That’s the word of Stricklin’s former boss, Arizona AD Greg Byrne.)

5.  The Lincoln Journal Star reports that Oral Roberts coach Scott Sutton is on the list for MSU and for Nebraska.

6.  Wisely, Ole Miss continues its contract extension talks with Andy Kennedy.  (The coach hasn’t made an NCAA tourney yet, but he’s won 20 games five or more times with the worst facilities and hoops budget in the SEC.  Gotta wonder how much the departures of Houston Nutt and Pete Boone have aided his status, though.  He was not extended after last season.)

7.  Florida’s cornerback Marcus Roberson is back at practice after what was nearly a career-ending neck injury last fall.

8.  The Gators’ defense has been a key to the team’s Sweet Sixteen run.

9.  Georgia QB Aaron Murray is glad the hot-seat talk that fueled a “stressful” season last year is history.

10.  There are plenty of question marks as the Dawgs open spring practice today.

11.  Another day, another National Player of the Year trophy for Kentucky’s Anthony Davis.

12.  The Cats should have a slick, new locker room at Rupp Arena next year thanks to a $2.9 million renovation project kickstarted by John Calipari.

13.  Connor Shaw is settling in as South Carolina’s quarterback this spring.

14.  Steve Spurrier — who’s appeared topless on camera more times than Heather Graham — believes Bruce Ellington will decide his football future by the end of the week.

15.  Vandy is looking for more forward progress this spring.

16.  This writer thinks the SEC could be headed to a $5 billion payday with renegotiated ESPN and CBS deals. 

17.  It’s rather silly that more college football programs don’t open their practices to fans.
