Welcome Dawg fans to Around the SEC. This feature is like the daily Dawg Bites, but focused on the rest of the SEC teams. In the words of Sun Tzu (or was it Houston Nutt?): “Know thy enemy.”
Here is what you may have missed ‘round the SEC:
- Florida has suspended seven players for their opener against Michigan, including star wide receiver Antonio Callaway. The seven players made improper purchases at the school bookstore then sold those items for cash. I’m sure Florida’s offense will still be fine against Rashan Gary and company.
- Auburn announced the Jarrett Stidham will be the team’s starting QB. Stidham has come in with tons of hype, but the jury is still out until he proves he is more Cam Newton rather than Jeremy Johnson.
- Legendary Arkansas head coach and athletic director Frank Broyles passed away at 92. Broyles is largely credited for putting Arkansas on the college football, and the award for the nation’s top assistant coach bears his name. Our condolences to his family and Razorback Nation.
- Kentucky’s starting left tackle Cole Mosier suffered a torn ACL in a scrimmage and will miss the 2017 season, ending his Wildcat career. Hopefully he can make a fast recovery to prepare himself for the NFL Draft.
- Texas A&M became the first college football team to adopt former collegiate coach Hal Mumme’s virtual reality product, VAR Football. Aggie quarterbacks will now be able to apply what they’ve learned in these high-tech simulations when they become the starting QB at another school.
Until next time… GO DAWGS!!!
