Is basketball taking over the SEC? Auburn hired Bruce Pearl. Tennessee is about to open NCAA tournament play. Not so fast. The majority of the conference is still being consumed by spring football, and for further evidence of that, check out today’s lunch links.
- With C.J. Mosley gone, junior Trey DePriest is the new lead dog in Alabama’s linebacking corps.
- No punishment has been given to the four players arrested at Georgia this week, but coach Mark Richt said they would handle it in due time. “We don’t hide things,” he said.
- Despite changes being made to the staff at Arkansas, all three offensive coaches remained intact. That stability and continuity is key for the Razorbacks heading into the season.
- When Florida opens spring practice Wednesday, the focus will be on first-year offensive coordinator Kurt Roper and his new scheme.
- LSU’s young and inexperienced offense is hoping to fix the mistakes made in Saturday’s scrimmage.
- When Auburn hired new basketball coach Bruce Pearl on Tuesday, it made quite an impression around the state and nationwide, but where does it rank with the hire of Nick Saban?
- Mississippi State’s first practice featured strong play from the quarterbacks, but it was the defense that stole the show.
- Ole Miss linebackers Serderius Bryant and Denzel Nkemdiche have both had off-the-field trouble this offseason, but the two are now moving in very different directions.
- Vanderbilt’s first "live" hitting of the spring brings turnovers and good offensive line movement.
