SEC Headlines – 8/13/12

1.  Will Muschamp doesn’t want Jacoby Brissett or Jeff Driskel to worry about replacing Tim Tebow.  (Shouldn’t they be worried about replacing John Brantley, anyway?)

2.  Seven Georgia walk-ons have been put on scholarship… and two may wind up starting.

3.  At Kentucky, Maxwell Smith still appears to lead Morgan Newton for the starting quarterback job.

4.  Yesterday was Fan Day at South Carolina and, oh, how times have changed.

5.  This writer says Arkansas’ program should serve as a role model for Tennessee’s football team.

6.  Vanderbilt’s defense gets veteran leadership from Colt Nichter and Rob Lohr.

7.  Quarterback James Franklin is Missouri’s main man.

8.  Nick Saban is looking for special young players for his special teams units.

9.  Auburn’s defense is “on a good pace” under new coordinator Brian VanGorder.

10.  Tiger signee JaQuay Williams is still waiting for the NCAA to give him academic clearance.

11.  Arkansas coaches still haven’t decided when to let Knile Davis start taking hits.

12.  Zach Mettenberger put up some decent numbers during a weekend scrimmage at LSU.

13.  For the first time ever, Mississippi State’s assistant football coaches will make more than $2 million.  (To put that in perspective, former offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn made $1.3 million by his lonesome last year at Auburn.)

14.  After a quick bout of homesickness, defensive back Xavier Grindle returned to Starkville yesterday and MSU’s team yesterday.

15.  Co-defensive coordinator Dave Wommack says his squad has gotten a lot of turnovers in fall camp.  (So is that a plus for the defense or a minus for the offense?)

16.  Texas A&M’s new quarterback is going to need some help from an improved Aggie defense.

UPDATE — The Lone Star State is now opening up to SEC schools thanks to A&M’s switch in conferences.
