SEC's lunch links
- The SEC's amazing seven-year streak of BSC championship game victories did not go down without a furious fight.
- Auburn was unable to conjure one last miracle. Star running back Tre Mason apologized to Tigers fans after the game.
- AJ McCarron's mom takes heat for a postgame tweet she quickly deleted. The Crimson Tide are still loaded but have lost that aura of invincibility.
- Georgia players still can't get over the pain of "The Prayer at Jordan-Hare."
- James Franklin deflects attention from his job prospects to Vanderbilt, calling it a compliment to the program.
- Johnny Manziel tells ESPN he hasn't decided on the NFL draft yet, then joins the BCS Megacast. Aggies junior OT Cedric Ogbuehi tweets that he'll announce his decision on Thursday.
- Star running back Jeremy Hill is leaning toward a return to LSU for his senior season, according to a source. Left tackle La'El Collins might stay, too.
- Top-5 ranking for Mizzou is a feather in Gary Pinkel's cap. Cornerback E.J. Gaines and left tackle Justin Britt will play in the East-West Shrine Game on Jan. 18.
- South Carolina's No. 4 ranking is its highest ever in a postseason poll.
- Florida completed its coaching staff by hiring veteran offensive line coach Mike Summers. The Gators also announced LB Ronald Powell is going pro.
- Arkansas defensive end Trey Flowers will return for his senior season.
- With Louisville now looking for a new head coach, there's no denying it's a better job than Kentucky, even though UK is in the SEC and has a larger fan base.
- Donte Moncrief's departure means Laquon Treadwell takes over as Mississippi's No. 1 receiving target.
- Juco signee has shot at starting on Mississippi State's offensive line.
