TGIF, and thank GOD it’s only three weeks until the threepeat quest begins! For now, start the weekend off right with six cool ones from around SEC Country.
Alabama football coach Nick Saban said Thursday night that there are compliance, coaching and team leadership avenues in place when it comes to his players and autograph seekers.
Brian Vogler is replacing a cornerstone of the Alabama football team's offense.
Some might say it's fitting to call them Florida's replacement players, career back-ups who have been called on to be fill-ins for three key starters while they are away.
Tennessee already is encountering a couple of obstacles in its attempt to revitalize a pass rush that has been dormant for several years.
The first two-a-day practice of preseason camp Thursday didn't feature the effort and focus Auburn coach Gus Malzahn is expecting from his squad. So the Tigers had to regroup before they took the field again Thursday afternoon.
I’m not suggesting that Saban should ditch the run because his formula for success is championship proven. In his first season in 2007, the Tide threw for 979 more passing yards than rushing yards, but finished 7-6 with the school’s all-time leading passer, John Parker Wilson, taking the snaps.
Two years later, Mark Ingram ran for 1,658 yards by himself to win the Heisman Trophy as Alabama punched out an enforcing 601 rushing attempts for 3,011 yards to go undefeated and win it all.
Alabama passed the ball just 346 times in 2009. However, McCarron will be Saban’s first three-year starter at quarterback at Alabama. He’s not only the most reliable player on offense, but the most confident one, too.
We all know McCarron is a team player, but it’s time for him to be the main difference in whether Alabama wins or loses week after week. That’s how one becomes the best player on the field.
