So why has Alabama given out nearly half as many medical redshirts as the combined total of the remainder of the SEC over the past three years?

Ryan Mallett mentioned that it is hard to watch game film of Arkansas’ game with Alabama. I don’t doubt him; I don’t think I could watch the game again either.

Auburn is playing great football right now, but the defense could use a little bit of a better start to games.

Ahmad Black, a Florida defensive back, had this to say about the Gators’ match with Alabama: “Last year we didn’t come out and play our best.”

A change in Georgia’s athletic director brought a change in scheduling. (Personally, I feel that the Georgia football program is on the decline, and non-conference road game losses are instilling fear in the UGA program.)

The leaders of the Kentucky football program approached head coach Joker Phillips with an interesting request.

A former Tennessee coach, Louisiana State defensive coordinator John Chavis is not letting on that he misses the Volunteers in any way. (And why would he? He is currently 4-0 with a No. 12 team.)

A number of injuries are currently affecting Mississippi, which is bad news considering it is coming off its best win of the season.

Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen: “I look around and a lot of people aren't playing Top 25 teams at the beginning of their schedule around the country.”

It is now clear why South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier pulled starting quarterback Stephen Garcia: He did not want to get sued for letting Garcia play bull-rush, head-down football.

Who is the worst in the nation on third down? I don’t know, but Tennessee is second-to-last at 119th.

The backup quarterback position at Vanderbilt has been settled for some time now.
