Morning Six Pack: July 12, 2013 and FIFTY days until kickass

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-mU_dQP_7Xg0/UJfDXuVaYCI/AAAAAAAAEaI/2gHVYMX2KT0/s1600/msp.pngSeven weekends left, y’all. Here’s the TGIF edition of six fresh college football stories with a strong SEC flavor.

Alabama's new 'waterfall room' revealed on the web

A short video appears to have been recorded inside one of the newest features of Alabama's locker room.

Kentucky dismisses Thomas brothers

Khalid Thomas joined his brother Pancho Thomas (pictured, somewhat) earlier this year as a member of the Kentucky football program. Five months later, the brothers will involuntarily exit the program together as well.

Georgia making the right decision not to launch an Aaron Murray Heisman campaign

Georgia has decided against an Aaron Murray Heisman campaign to start the season, according to the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer on Thursday.

UT officials work to fill Neyland Stadium

As fans wandered through the concourse Thursday afternoon at Neyland Stadium, Tennessee fundraisers hoped they could envision a packed stadium and a winning team — and wanted to buy tickets to be a part of it.

AP: Ohio State's Gordon Gee slow to apologize to Notre Dame, Catholics and SEC

Although university trustees directed Gee in a March 11 letter to begin issuing personal apologies "promptly," he didn't make the first of those apologies until May 20 during a previously scheduled meeting with the bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Columbus, according to a copy of Gee's calendar obtained by The Associated Press through a records request.

Quotable:

SEC Network commentator Paul Finebaum told ESPN's College Football Live, "I'm sad to say he's trending toward becoming a punch line."

If Manziel's the punch line, what's the set-up? All he's done is follow the greatest season ever by a redshirt freshman with the greatest off-season in history.

Finebaum also has said that Manziel's "had a train wreck of an off-season."

Really? Making some ill-conceived comments on Twitter, taking some online classes, throwing out the first pitch at a San Diego Padres game and taking in the Super Bowl, Mardi Gras and NBA All-Star Game, among other cool vacation trips, constitutes a train wreck?

Sounds more like a luxury cruise.
