SEC lunchtime links
By Sam Khan Jr.
Injuries, toughness, targeting, blame and quarterback questions... it's all here in today's edition of the lunchtime links:
With Vinnie Sunseri out for the season with a knee injury, Alabama turns to Landon Collins
to take his place at strong safety
Now that his first career start is in the rearview mirror, Mizzou freshman quarterback Maty Mauk
prepares for round two against South Carolina
A heel injury didn't stop Auburn running back Tre Mason from shining against Texas A&M on Saturday, and
he's beginning to show his toughness and durability
LSU coach Les Miles took the blame in the immediate aftermath of the Tigers' 27-24 loss to Ole Miss, and after reviewing the film
he maintained that he needs to do better

South Carolina's offense struggled in its loss to Tennessee, and head coach Steve Spurrier said
maybe the Gamecocks "thought we were too good."
After a 52-0 loss to Alabama and an off week coming up,
Arkansas coach Bret Bielema and the Razorbacks are searching for answers

On the heels of having two players impacted by the new rule, Georgia coach
Mark Richt offered some thoughts on targeting
and how officials are handling it.
As Tennessee has progressed,
so has quarterback Justin Worley
-- and it shows.
Even though Jalen Whitlow's ankle injury isn't as serious as it might have originally appeared,
Maxwell Smith gets the nod as Kentucky's starting quarterback
when the Wildcats meet Mississippi State.
Speaking of starting quarterbacks,
Vanderbilt coach James Franklin isn't ready to name one yet
for Saturday's game against Texas A&M, with Austin Carta-Samuels dealing with an injury. The Commodores' depth chart lists Carta-Samuels "or" Patton Robinette.
Ole Miss had to face four ranked teams in its first seven games, but now
the hardest part of the Rebels' schedule is behind them
Mississippi State's linebackers are
working to be the SEC's best
Here's a look at
why Florida's offense has struggled so much
