No. 2 overall football prospect of 2014 chooses Michigan

Jabrill Peppers is the No. 1 cornerback prospect in the class of 2014.

QB Golson suspended, leaves ND

Everett Golson is out for at least the fall semester at Notre Dame, saying he has been suspended by the university for what he called poor academic judgment. [That’s a nice way of saying he cheated]

Les Miles says SEC scheduling gives certain teams 'unintended and unearned advantages'

"If I would've told you in the last 13 years, you would've played non-divisional opponents Florida and Georgia, you've played them 17 times. And Alabama has played them eight times. What would you say to that?"

“I was the only person that spoke out in favor of it last season,” Saban said. “If you increase the size of the league, then you’ve got to play more games.”

Many of the same arguments against adding one more conference game came up in 1992 when the SEC split into divisions and went from seven to eight league games. Coaches and others said it would be the end of SEC programs competing for national championships.

Alabama won the national title that season. SEC teams have won 11 national championships in the 21 years since an eighth game went on line, including the last seven in a row.

Would a ninth conference game make it tougher for an SEC team to win the national championship? Sure. But something tells me the SEC would manage.
