SEC Headlines – 4/21/11 Part Two

1.  Steve Spurrier said yesterday that South Carolina needs to oversign because of the state’s poor academic record.

2.  Spurrier also said, “We have complete confidence Connor Shaw can run this offense,” if Stephen Garcia isn’t back with the team in the fall.

3.  A lesson learned while coaching at LSU helps Derek Dooley reamin calm after Tyler Bray’s bad spring game at Tennessee.

4.  Here’s a look at whose stock is up (and down) after the Vols’ Orange and White Game.

5.  Vanderbilt will return all five starters from Kevin Stallings’ 2010-11 squad.

6.  Former NFL coach Brian Billick breaks down the issues facing Cam Newton in the pros.  (Interesting stuff.)

7.  Gene Chizik says if freshman Kiehl Frazier is the best man for the job, he’ll be the starting QB at Auburn this fall.

8.  Nick Saban swears he’s got no problem playing both AJ McCarron and Phillip Sims “until somebody separates.”  (We assume he means from one another… and not just until one guy blows apart.)

9.  As we suggested earlier today, if Harvey Updyke really was attacked yesterday, it could gain him some sympathy.

Bama Fans Raising Money For Auburn Oaks; Saban Speaks Up

According to The Tuscaloosa News, a group of Alabama alumni and students have started an initiative to raise money to help replace the oaks at Toomer’s Corner.

As of 1:45pm ET today, the push had brought in more than $3,000.

Nick Saban has also stepped up to talk about the poisoning of the trees.

“The great rivalries and traditions are what make college football special and we respect the traditions of every team we play, especially the schools in our conference and in our state,” Saban said.  “It is important to be positive in support of your own program and there is absolutely no benefit to negative behavior toward any other institution.”

“We are truly saddened by this destructive behavior from an individual who certainly does not represent our institution, our program, or our fans in any way.  It is important that we continue to respect one another in the spirit of good sportsmanship for many years to come.”

Good for Saban and good for those Alabama supporters who are working hard to make Harvey Updyke look like the lone nut that he — apparently — is.
