I do not find out about you however I’m sick and uninterested in studying, writing, and listening to about:
**–Name, Image and Likeness. There aren’t any guidelines. Nobody has a solution. I’m undecided there IS a solution that follows the legal guidelines of the United States of America. I’m all for the gamers making as a lot cash as attainable. Figure it out and get again to us.
**–The switch portal. I’m pleased that gamers are lastly getting the mobility they deserve. Players are going to switch if they don’t seem to be enjoying sufficient or in the event that they imagine they’ll get a greater NIL deal elsewhere. positive But the portal would not must be open twelve months a yr. Let us know whenever you repair that.
**–Conference realignment: . Texas and Oklahoma have to determine it out with the Big 12 and get to the SEC. The Big 12 and Pac-12 have to cease sniping at one another and work out a approach for each conferences to outlive. Notre Dame wants to remain an impartial, which implies that NBC must step up its TV deal..
**–The means of attending to a brand new College Football Playoff. There was a wonderfully good 12-team format that checked all of the packing containers, however it bought shot down by the ACC, Big Ten, and Pac-12. The commissioners will get it completed as a result of they must get it completed by the 2026 season. But the method is carrying all people out. Figure it out. Tell my pal Heather Dinich and she or he’ll inform the remainder of us.
So let’s you and I make a deal. Until one thing really occurs and the information on the bottom change considerably, we’ll write about and speak about FOOTBALL from this level ahead.
You know, Football?
Teams within the SEC are reporting to camp this week to start what I feel goes to be one of the crucial entertaining seasons we have had in a protracted, very long time. Here are simply 5 explanation why:
1—More good groups. Take Alabama and Georgia and push them off to at least one aspect. They’ve received the previous two nationwide championships and shall be in everybody’s preseason prime three. They’ve recruited at a unique stage than everybody else within the SEC over the previous 5 years. We’ll write much more about them later however not as we speak.
Now take Vanderbilt and Missouri and push them off to the opposite aspect.
The 10 groups that stay are all able to beating one another on a given Saturday. That goes to provide us essentially the most aggressive SEC that we’ve got had in a very long time.
Bottom line: Alabama and Georgia are No. 1 and no. 2. But who’s going to be No. 3? It’s going to be enjoyable discovering out.
2—Arkansas has discovered their man. Since Lou Holtz left as the top coach of Arkansas after the 1983 season, the next males have held the place: Ken Hatfield, Jack Crowe, Danny Ford, Houston Nutt, Bobby Petrino, John L. Smith, Brett Bielema, and Chad Morris.
The Razorback trustworthy by no means liked any of these guys the best way they love Sam Pittman, who’s starting his third season in Fayetteville. The Hogs had been 9-4 final season and it might have simply been 10-3 or higher.
Their quarterback (KJ Jefferson) returns as do their coordinators Kendall Briles (offense) and Barry Odom (protection).
The Hogs open at house in opposition to Cincinnati, a playoff crew final season, and host South Carolina on Sept. 17
3—Billy Napier at Florida: Napier checked all of the packing containers when Florida employed him to switch Dan Mullen. The son of a profitable highschool coach from Northwest Georgia, Napier, I’m instructed, is likely one of the most detailed, organized coaches you may ever meet. Florida is on the point of transfer into a brand new $85 million workplace/follow advanced. That will solely assist recruiting.
Long time period the Gators are going to do effectively below Napier. But what about this season?
The Gators have a very robust opener with Utah, the defending Pac-12 champions, within the Swamp. They play Texas A&M and LSU from the SEC West. They must go to Florida State.

Be affected person, Gator followers.
4—Brian Kelly at LSU: For the entire points LSU has gone by since Joe Burrow left, the issue was by no means a couple of lack of gamers. What the Tigers wanted greater than something was a gentle, organized hand behind the wheel. I imagine they’ve that in Brian Kelly, who left Notre Dame after 12 seasons to turn out to be the top coach in Baton Rouge.
Now Kelly has to search out his quarterback, however he’ll try this in coaching camp. Myles Brennan, Garrett Nussmeier, Arizona State switch Jayden Daniels (29 profession begins), and recruit Walker Howard give LSU one of many deepest quarterback rooms in faculty soccer.
The Tigers open on Sept. 4 in opposition to Florida State in New Orleans. Kelly will be taught quite a bit about his crew in that recreation.
5—Quarterback depth could possibly be the very best I’ve seen within the SEC. Just take a look at this partial record of quarterbacks who could possibly be starters this season.
Alabama: Bryce Young, 2021 Heisman winner.
Arkansas: KJ Jefferson, returning starter
Auburn: Zach Calzada, switch from Texas A&M, the place he was the starter
Florida: Anthony Richarson, returning starter
Georgia: Stetson Bennett, MVP in CFP semifinals and nationwide championship video games.
Kentucky: Will Lewis. Could be the primary SEC QB taken within the 2023 draft.
LSU: Jayden Daniels, began 29 video games at Arizona State
Ole Mess: Jaxon Dart, switch from USC
Mississippi State: Will Rogers, led the SEC in passing yardage final season
South Carolina: Spencer Rattler, switch from Oklahoma.
Tennessee: Hendon Hooker, 31 TD and solely 3 INT final season.
Texas A&M: Max Johnson, began video games for LSU in 2020 and 2021
