SEC Headlines – 7/9/12

1.  Interesting summer fluff: Which SEC schools would have the most wins if the wins of their winningest coach were removed from their football wins total?  Follow?

2.  There are plenty of SEC’ers on the Maxwell Award and Bednarik Award watch lists.  (And if I didn’t think there were too many awards and that those awards’ preseason “watch lists” were even less meaningful than the awards themselves… I’d care.)

3. With a playoff on the way, what’ll happen to the USA Today Coaches’ Poll?

4.  This writer says to see the SEC’s brightest stars you’ll need to keep an eye on the trenches.

5.  The preseason hype is high for LSU.  As usual.

6.  In case you missed it, Texas A&M will be getting new uniforms this fall, too.  (Don’t toss too much tradition, please.)

7.  A&M and Missouri are hitting the ground running in the SEC.

8.  Here’s a look at how Steve Spurrier turned around South Carolina.

9.  Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray is among the SEC’s 10 best players.

10.  AthlonSports.com ranks the SEC’s offensive lines from best to worst (or from Bama to Ole Miss, if you prefer).

REMINDER: SATURDAY’S GAME IS ON TIGERVISION ONLY IN THE STATE OF LA. CLICK HERE FOR ORDERING DETAILS.

I have heard unconfirmed reports that it will be available for free on the ESPN3.com service outside of the local blackout area, trying to confirm this now.

As they say, winning cures all ills. The Les Miles Is A Genius bandwagon is filling up fast with national pundits who dropped him like a hot potato after the Auburn loss. With the win, we are firmly in the BCS picture and we’re one of a handful of teams left that have a legitimate shot at Pasadena, though Miles is quick to say we are a long way from that reality. We are quickly moving beyond even the realm of what Delusional Optimism covers.

Elsewhere, Drake Nevis and Patrick Peterson have been named semifinalists for the Bednarik Award, and Josh Jasper was named a star of the week by the Groza Award.

HORTICULTURAL UPDATE

Just so we are all on the same page, This happened:

Apparently, he does this all the time. The players acted like it was nothing out of the ordinary. And after acknowledging the strange at the press conference yesterday, Miles went on to add that synthetic doesn’t taste very good and that it’s something he’s been doing since he played baseball as a kid.

Oh, and as for other absurdities, Apparently I missed a massive five-part series last week in which Jacques Doucet compares LSU football to Van Halen (where Saban is Roth and Miles is Hagar)

Texas runs away with this weeks Tears of Unfathomable Sadness but don’t think the bammers didn’t have a good weep.

I am now mildly perturbed by the movements in Colorado. I fully expect Woody Paige to release some “inside information” before the SEC championship game that grants us something even better than A DAMN STRONG FOOTBALL TEAM. (What’s that? Of course we are going to Atlanta. It makes perfect sense)

Volleyball destroyed the ReBears on Sunday to secure the SEC West lead. They hit the road to Tennessee and Kentucky this weekend.

Soccer’s season ended Friday night in a 4-3 shootout loss to SCar in the SEC tourney.

Women’s basketball had a comfortable exhibition win over Delta State last night. However, it was a massacre for SEC Men’s teams as Auburn and Tennessee both lost exhibition games to D-2 schools and Bama had to take theirs to double overtime. We open regular season play against Natchitoches on Friday night.

Gold takes the Fall Series 2-1 with a 7-1 win last Friday. That’s all for baseball till the spring.

After the break, player interviews from Monday.
