More talk of scheduling, some NFL draft talk and more in today's lunch links:
- How will the College Football Playoff selection committee view schedules and select teams for the new postseason system? Is eight or nine conference games preferable? A breakdown of what's ahead.
- Former Vanderbilt coach James Franklin and former director of performance enhancement Dwight Galt -- who are both at Penn State now -- allegedly contacted with the alleged victim in the rape case involving former Vanderbilt player Brandon Vandenburg.
- LSU canceled a future two-game nonconference series with North Carolina State. The games were originally set for 2017 and 2020.
- Is former Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron worth a first round pick in the NFL draft? Jon Gruden said he could see it happening.
- Gruden is also a fan of former Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, who seems to be a lock to be drafted high.
- Georgia coach Mark Richt offers some insight on on the chain of command in the coaching staff when it comes to recruiting decisions.
- Kentucky running back Jojo Kemp was bothered by injuries in 2013 but had a strong performance in the Wildcats' Blue-White spring game, perhaps signifying what could be ahead for the veteran back.
- Ole Miss needs to add a "Big 5" conference team to its schedule for 2016 to meet the SEC's new standard.
