Around the SEC

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

It’s finally Notre Dame week, and if you’re like me, you are consuming a lot of content regarding this epic matchup. However, the rest of the SEC is also chugging right along. With Georgia’s SEC schedule resuming after the Notre Dame game, let’s recap the latest news in the Southeastern Conference, albeit after a week where there were few competitive matchups.

Here’s what’s happening around the SEC:

  • An Auburn super booster is supposedly making a play to replace head coach Gus Malzahn with former Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops. Jimmy Rane, the “richest man in the state of Alabama” and noted Auburn superbooster, has is supposedly ready to help bring Stoops out of retirement of Malzahn and the Tigers fail to beat Alabama this season. To be fair, was college football even back if there wasn’t a crazy Auburn coaching rumor?
  • Another starting QB in the SEC has been lost for the season. This time, it was Florida quarterback Feleipe Franks, who suffered a broken and dislocated ankle in the Gators’ come from behind win against Kentucky. Redshirt junior Kyle Trask will take over as Florida QB, with redshirt freshman Emory Jones waiting in the wings.
  • Alabama defensive end LaBryan Ray, a pre-season All-SEC selection, will miss a significant amount of time after undergoing foot surgery. The injury bug has not been nice to the Crimson Tide defense, who have already lost multiple linebackers for the season.
  • After visiting Lexington, four-star offensive lineman R.J. Adams has decommitted from Penn State and reopened his recruitment. The twelfth ranked offensive guard in the country, Adams would be a great pledge for Mark Stoops and the Wildcats.

Until next time… GO DAWGS!!!
