SEC Headlines – 7/14/11 Part One

1.  The Gainesville Sun says the South Carolina-Georgia game should be a doozy.

2.  The paper also ranks Carolina’s Alshon Jeffery as the league’s 6th best player.

3.  Was Steve Spurrier’s field goal to beat Auburn in 1966 the greatest moment in Florida football history?

4.  Speaking of Auburn, the Tigers struck out at last night’s ESPY awards.  (As millions tune-in and fall into ESPN self-hype trap.)

5.  Georgia looks pretty good on special teams… again.
