Morning Six Pack: August 21 and 10 days until kickoff

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-mU_dQP_7Xg0/UJfDXuVaYCI/AAAAAAAAEaI/2gHVYMX2KT0/s1600/msp.pngGood morning, sports fans! The Hump Day edition of the MSP brings the customary half dozen from around SEC Country.

Ranking the SEC’s top 10 linebackers of the BCS era

It’s time to turn our attention to another position the SEC is known for – hard-hitting linebackers.

Delusional Optimism Is Gonna Save College Football

I want all of y'all to take a long, hard look at the photo above this article. That's how the last two seasons of college football ended - with the physical manifestation of evil lifting the crystal football. [Smirk]

Hokies RB will ‘definitely’ be ready for ‘Bama

Finally, some good news on the injury/personnel front for Virginia Tech. J.C. Coleman, listed as a co-starter at running back on Tech’s most recent depth chart, has suffered a pair of ankle sprains — a left high-ankle sprain and a right ankle sprain — several days ago.

Auburn football: Former safety set to transfer

Former Auburn safety Demetruce McNeal is expected to transfer to Division II West Alabama to continue his football career.

Alabama LB Reuben Foster has made 'tremendous progress,' will see increased repetitions

The five-star freshman fought through a stinger in his shoulder to show improvement from the first to second scrimmage.

Quotable:

No longer able to recruit players on athletic prowess alone, UT became somewhat average. After averaging 10.2 wins and directing teams in two BCS bowls in his first seven seasons, Fulmer averaged 8.4 wins and reached no BCS bowls in his final nine years.

Given his statement that he took responsibility, Fulmer was asked if there was anything he'd change.

"Not really," he said. "Now I'm sure I'd change something in each of the 52 losses we had. There are always things you'd change about those. But as for everything else, if I said something it might sound like I was throwing somebody under the bus. So I'll keep that to myself. But I'm very proud of what we accomplished there."
