Morning Six Pack: August 16, 2013 and 15 days until bammer football! Friday! Only two more weekends until a date with the Hokies in the ATL. Start the weekend off right with these fresh, full flavored college football stories from around SEC Country.

Fowler working at 2 positions

Jalston Fowler is in position to accomplish something rare in this day and age of specialization.

Trenton Brown makes UF teammates feel small

At 6-foot-3, 302 pounds, Florida center Jonotthan Harrison is a big man. Until he stands next to offensive tackle Trenton Brown.

Eddie George: Alabama running back T.J. Yeldon has 'all the ability'

The 1995 Heisman trophy winner says Yeldon's confidence is only growing.

Tigers' Dee Ford sidelined with injury

Defensive end Dee Ford, the only proven pass rusher on the Auburn defense, is injured and expected to miss more practice time but Tigers coach Gus Malzahn is optimistic he will be able to play the first game against Washington State.

Wiedmer: Can clothes fashion Vols into winners?

Tennessee assistant coach Willie Martinez was on the Georgia sideline that November day in 2007 when the Bulldogs first broke out the black jerseys. And crushed Auburn 45-20.


On offensive lineman Arie Kouandjio - "I don't think that I've seen anybody more dedicated, more determined, work harder". The more Saban talks about Arie's improved mobility, the more it sounds like the Killer Kouandjio Bookends is about to happen. The staff plans on sticking with the new offensive line arrangement (Austin Shepherd at left guard/Arie at right tackle) in the scrimmage, and will make a determination on the arrangement they want depending on the results.

On the tight end group - Brian Vogler and Jalston Fowler both were called out and complimented as being "pretty good and pretty consistent." It sounds like the guys behind that have been a bit more uneven . Look for Brandon Green to come in as a snow plow on goal line situations. O.J. Howard is still learning the system, and it sounds like it is slowing him down a bit.

On the best and worst things that have happened in camp - Saban doesn't have time for this question, but he does have time to spend three minutes not answering it.
