This is part one of a series previewing the 2011 SEC college football season.
2011 SEC Football Preview
If last year was the year of the quarterback in the SEC, 2011 is the year of the defense.
Gone are All-American, All-SEC and SEC veteran quarterbacks Cam Newton (Auburn), Ryan Mallett (Arkansas), Greg McElroy (Alabama), Mike Hartline (Kentucky) and Stephen Garcia (South Carolina)… no wait, he’s been reinstated again for the fifth time.
This season stout defensive ends, brutal linebackers and stud corners will be on a mission to contain an immensely talented group of SEC running backs.
