Every Thursday on The SEC Blog, we will feature questions from the Bleacher Report inbox, Twitter and email. Due to SEC Media Days this week, Q&A got bumped to Friday.
Do you have a question for next week's Q&A? Send it to SEC lead blogger Barrett Sallee via the B/R inbox, on Twitter @BarrettSallee or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You've got SEC questions, and I've got SEC answers. Thank you everybody for your questions this week, and if I didn't get to them this week, they are still saved and will be used in the future.
And with that, we're off:
It certainly seems like he wouldn't be, considering Bobby Petrino is one of the game's most brilliant offensive minds. But the impression I got from Wilson as he made the rounds at the Wynfrey Hotel during SEC Media Days is that he was.

Maybe it was a front, and maybe it wasn't.
It was clear that everyone in the Razorback contingent was well-prepared to answer Petrino questions, but Wilson more so than the other Razorbacks certainly seemed to shine a bit when talking about the fact that Petrino was gone.
I certainly got the impression that he was a little relieved by his absence. Petrino isn't the most personable coach in the world, so that probably is the reason. With Paul Petrino on staff, that could mean "Bobby Petrino light" play-calling without the internal stress.
That'd be a good thing for the Razorbacks.
@BarrettSallee am i the only one concerned about lsu's db depth this year?Great starters- mostly freshmen after that.— Barret White (@BarretWhite) July 20, 2012
If you're concerned due to lack of experience, I guess I could see that. We know about cornerback Tyrann Mathieu and safety Eric Reid, and cornerback Tharold Simon has everything that it takes to be a star in the SEC and on the national landscape.

Strong safety Craig Loston is a guy that can absolutely take it to the next level with another offseason of seasoning under his belt, but his experience is rather limited. Micah Eugene is another hot-shot recruit that is expecting to battle for significant playing time at the safety spot.
Inexperienced players often struggle with consistency, so in that regard, I'd be at least a little concerned. But if you're concerned about the talent, don't be. LSU seems to have found a way to clone stud cornerbacks and safeties, and this group should be no different.
I can't really comment on whether or not he was kicked off the team, mostly because I never really considered him to be part of the team to begin with.
He was academically ineligible last fall and then was suspended by Alabama head coach Nick Saban this spring for an undisclosed reason. He remained suspended throughout the offseason and was removed from Alabama's online roster.
Whether he was kicked off or he left on his own accord really doesn't matter, because he was barely part of the program to begin with.
