SECual Healing, 8/28: Quick Hits and QB Battles
Happy last Friday before football starts!
A few updates from the SEC quarterback races, no real surprises.
South Carolina: Connor Mitch, of six career pass attempts, has been named the starter for next Thursday’s bout with UNC. Also, someone in COLA is pretending to be him at bars.
Texas A&M: Sophomore Kyle Allen, unsurprisingly, has been named the starter. True freshman Kyler Murray will definitely see action, though.
LSU: No real news, but I heard on XM that Brandon Harris is ‘trending slightly ahead’ of Anthony Jennings. Harris looked good in mop-up duty in the near-comeback against Mississippi State last year, but the rest of his freshman season was pretty much a wash.
Florida: No real news, but both Will Grier and Treon Harris will see snaps against New Mexico State.
Alabama, Ole Miss, and Georgia: All quiet on the Western (and Eastern) fronts.
In other news…
Speaking of Florida, who broke spring ball with SIX scholarship offensive linemen, freshman stud tackle Martez Ivey is getting his knee scoped and is expected to miss about half of the season. Definitely hurts their chance to gain early momentum early in SEC play, where their longstanding winning streaks against Kentucky (28 games) and Tennessee (10) are on the line.
And really, that’s it. I’m ready for some damn football.
