Around the SEC

NCAA Football: Missouri at Georgia Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Ya’ll. Don’t forget to hate Florida a little extra today.

Here is what’s happening around the SEC:

  • Tennessee running back John Kelly has been suspended for the game this weekend against Kentucky due to a drug charge. This especially hurts given the Vols haven’t scored an offensive touchdown since September 23rd.
  • Florida coach Jim McElwain now regrets mentioning the death threats his family and team have received. This whole story is just weird, especially since McElwain won’t give any details regarding threats to his bosses.
  • Seven of the Nine Florida players who have been suspended all year due to credit card fraud have received pre-trial intervention, including wide receiver Antonio Callaway. Still, it appears a long time before they see the field again.
  • Ole Miss AD Ross Bjork said the coaching search will “heat up” in November. But really, it’s time to bury the hatchet and come home, Houston Nutt.
  • Texas governor Greg Abbott has spoken out about his desire to see Texas and Texas A&M play every year once again. In a world that sees several SEC schools play out of conference rivals annually, and with the playoff committee looking for challenging non-conference games on the schedule, this should be a no-brainer.

Until next time… GO DAWGS!!!
