Morning Six Pack: August 9, 2013 and 22 days until kickass, 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.

Saban addresses players dealing with autograph seekers

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.

Vogler taking over at tight end

Brian Vogler is replacing a cornerstone of the Alabama football team's offense.

Replacements more than fill-ins

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.

Injuries to defensive line could block UT pass rush

Tennessee already is encountering a couple of obstacles in its attempt to revitalize a pass rush that has been dormant for several years.

Malzahn not pleased with effort during first two-a-day practice

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.
