SEC lunchtime links
By Alex Scarborough
What's a world without mock drafts? An odd one, I suppose, as baseball and playoff basketball takes center stage.
But as our good buddy at the SEC offices Chuck Dunlap pointed out on Monday: "Eight weeks from today SEC Football Media Days begin." And because Dunlap knows his audience, he followed that tweet with another: "I feel like I just ruined the entire summer of every single person who writes in some capacity about college football." Sort of.
In other Aggies news, Texas A&M sophomore receiver Ja'Quay Williams is transferring, according to a report. Williams caught four passes for 77 yards last season.
He wasn't early enough to participate in spring practice, but 2014 signee Gerald Willis got to Florida's campus for summer semester A this week, a full step ahead of the rest of his fellow summer enrollees. Speaking as someone who has sat down with the brother of Alabama safety Landon Collins, let me just say that I'm intrigued by the big defensive end's possibilities under Will Muschamp. He's everything you want: big, strong, quick. There's a reason Texas A&M, LSU and Alabama all wanted him.
The 2012 BCS National Championship Game between Alabama and LSU was a snoozefest as the Tide jumped out on top and never looked back. But that game has lived on through the NFL draft as both programs have produced a number of pro talents.
