Morning Six Pack: April 9, 2013

Mmmm. Nothing starts the day off better than six cold, clear and fresh college football stories from around the country.

Alabama junior tight end Brian Vogler has seen what everyone else saw Saturday.

Florida coach's creepy recruiting tactic continues

Joker Phillips decided to continue his nightmare-inducing recruiting tactics earlier this morning.

Auburn's running backs still finding their feet in hurry-up, no-huddle offense

Quotable:

Reilly Gibbons, who's listed at 6-foot-5 and 285 pounds, insists that his mind is made up. He's the fourth offensive lineman already committed to Miami for the incoming 2014 class, joining three other South Florida products — K.C. McDermott and Nick Linder (both of whom have brothers already on the Hurricanes' offensive line) and Trevor Darling.

"The spring games are coming up and I wanted a lot of other kids to see this and see that Miami is the place to go," Gibbons said. "We have the best offensive line in the country now. I believe that in my heart. And if someone's out there and on the ropes because of the NCAA scandal, I hope seeing me committing and other kids committing brings them over."
