    A place to offer SEC football stuff as we head toward the 2019 season.

    *Sixty seven year old Nick Saban will undergo hip surgery tomorrow. Saban said he didn't
    want any distractions heading into the 2019 season.

    *LSU has hired former Texas A&M athletic director Scott Woodard as their new AD.

    *Former Texas A&M head football coach R.C. Slocum has been named interim AD at the
    school where he was head coach for 14 years.

    *This will be the first year since 2006 that the SEC begins the season with no new head
    football coaches.

    *The longest tenured SEC coordinators are LSU's DC Dave Amanda, Kentucky's OC Eddie
    Gran and Auburn DC Kevin Steele. They're all entering their fourth seasons.

    *The only 2018 SEC coordinator who got fired was Ole Miss DC Wesley McGriff. He was
    replaced by former Colorado head coach Mike MacIntyre.

    *Former Kansas director of football operations Nolan Jones is joining Ole Miss in a similar
    capacity. Lot's of changes going on in Oxford.

    *Former USC defensive line coach Kenechi Udeze is set to join the LSU staff as a defensive
    analyst. Orgeron coached Udeze when he was at Southern Cal.

    *For 2019, the SEC will have eight coordinators making a minimum of $1,500,000 for the
    season.

    I had not noticed that.

    I like Ole Miss's coordinator hires. In fact, that's an understatement.

    I agree. Bringing in two ex-head coaches with a wealth of experience is a plus for a
    young head coach like Matt Luke. Another plus is that both Mike MacIntyre and Rich
    Rodriquez are good recruiters. Significant hires in my opinion.

    Georgia - The Dawgs have been outstanding against nonconference opponents in the three
    seasons under Kirby Smart with the Bulldogs putting together a 13-2 mark. The two losses
    were against Georgia Tech (2016) and Texas 2018. Notre Dame makes its first visit to Sam-
    ford Stadium looking to avenge a 20-19 home loss to Smart and the Dogs in 2017.

    LSU - The Tigers are coming off its first ten win season since 2013 with the team winning five
    nonconference games including wins over ranked teams in Miami and Central Florida. LSU will
    travel to Austin for the first time since the mid-1950s with the Tigers looking to snap a four
    game road losing streak to the Texas Longhorns with the last road win coming in 1938.

    Florida - The Gators open up a season away from the Swamp for the second time in three seasons
    when the team travels to Orlando for an in-state showdown with Miami at Camping World Stadium.
    Florida has lost seven out of the last eight meetings with the Hurricanes. Second year coach Dan
    Mullen's team hopes to make it two-in-a-row after snapping a five game losing streak to rival Florida
    State last year.

    Alabama - For the eight straight year, Bama kicks off a college football season at a neutral sight
    venue, this time in Atlanta against Duke. The Crimson Tide is 7-0 in those games including wins
    over Michigan, Virginia Tech, Wisconsin, West Virginia, USC and Florida State outscoring their
    opponents 271-91. This is the fifth time these two programs have met with Bama holding a 3-1
    advantage. Alabama is 55-7 against nonconference opponents under Nick Saban with the last
    regular season loss coming in 2007.

    *Every team in the SEC East has a quarterback who has started at least 13 games.
    Returning starters in the East include South Carolina's Jake Bently (32 career starts),
    Georgia's Jake Fromm (28), Florida's Feleipe Franks (21) and Kentucky's Terry Wilson
    (13). Missouri has Clemson transfer Kelly Bryant (18) and Vanderbilt has Ball State
    transfer (32).

    *SEC teams made changes at nearly 40 percent of the offensive and defensive coordinator
    positions during the offseason.

    *Vanderbilt loses four of the top five tacklers on defense, and with six starters gone, it's
    going to be a bit of a rebuild for a unit ranked 80th in total defense last year.

    *The Ole Miss offense not only has to replace solid quarterback Jordan Ta'amu, but good
    luck getting more out of the receiving corps that loses future NFL targets DK Metcalf, AJ
    Brown and DaMarcus Lodge. It's not a bad group returning but there will certainly be a
    drop off. Rich Rodriguez has his work cut out for him.

    *Nick Saban is expected to make a full recovery from hip replacement surgery that was
    performed yesterday. According to his doctors, Saban should be able to return to work
    in the very near future. Saban said he wanted to get the hip fixed because he wants to
    coach many more years.

    Auburn - When Gus Malzahn guided the Tigers to a BCS Championship birth in his first
    season, hype for the coach reached a fever pitch. Unfortunately it appears the Auburn
    skipper may have peaked early. Subsequently, the Tigers have been, well, just OK. Sure,
    they've played in two New Year's six bowl games and won the SEC West in 2017. They're
    also 2-6 in the postseason under Malzahn and followed up that stellar 2017 season with
    a dude (5th SEC West) last year. After 2017, Auburn signed Malzahn to a seven-year, 49
    million contract extension, a number that almost precludes a buyout. But this is the SEC.
    Stranger things have happened than an expensive coach getting the boot following a win-
    ning season. Malzahn should be ready for a 2019 in which every move, every play call and
    every final score will be scrutinized.

    Tiger player to watch: Sophomore wide receiver Seth Williams emerged as a playmaker
    his freshman season and appears poised for an even bigger role this year following the
    departure of Ryan Davis (69 catches) and Darius Slayton (35). Williams caught 26 passes
    for 5 touchdowns during his freshman season. He was voted the most valuable player of
    the spring game, with 4 catches for 103 yards and 2 scores. Now Auburn needs to settle
    on a QB to throw him the ball.

    Mike's dad was on Hootie Ingram's staff at Clemson, so Mike was a friend of mine way back in first and second grade. I think he got a raw deal in Boulder, but he should flourish in his third time through Oxford.

    Rich Rod was Bowden's first OC at Clemson, and when he left, the Bowden mystique left with him. Bowden only won 6 games in the ACC once, and that was in his second year, with Rodriguez running the offense before leaving for WVU after that season. I was impressed with him as a coordinator.

    If Luke can get two years out of each of the coordinators it should be a great help to his growing process.
    You got to know both Mac and Rodz are looking for another shot at being a head coach.

    Its been a rough week off the field for a pair of SEC East football staffs. Tuesday, it
    was reported that FLORIDA'S assistant director of player personnel (Otis Yelverton) was
    arrested on a felony charge of cyberstalking and placed on administrative leave. Later
    the same day, a pair of GEORGIA football staffers working in the recruiting program...
    one was fired and the other was suspended without pay for 30 days. No specific reason
    or reasons were given for the punitive measures. The Bulldogs are currently ranked
    10th in the current recruiting cycle.

    Georgia player to watch: Finally, junior running back D'Andre Swift stands alone atop Georgia's
    depth chart. Swift's talent as a big-play running back has always been clear, but even so he's had
    to be patient. In his 2017 freshman season, Georgia's ground game was led by Nick Chubb and
    Sony Michel who are now enjoying success in the NFL. During 2018, Swift shared the position with
    Elijah Holyfield where both rushed for over 1000 yards. Swift, now has the unique distinction of
    being Georgia's leading returning rusher and receiver and shares the spotlight with quarterback
    Jake Fromm as the leaders of the offense in 2019. After leading the Bulldogs with 1,049 rushing yards
    and 10 touchdowns in 2018, Swift could be headed for a very busy season. He is especially important
    as a receiver coming out of the backfield knowing that Georgia has to replace many of its top receivers.

    Since its creation in 1985, SEC MEDIA DAYS have been the unofficial Kickoff to the college
    football season, with coaches, players and media coming together for a series of press con-
    ferences spanning several days. The event has grown over the years with more than a 1000
    media members in attendance annually. Portions are broadcast live on the SEC Network.
    SEC media days were held in Atlanta in 2018 but will return to its longtime home in Hoover,
    Alabama (B'ham) for this year. Under consideration for host city in 2020 includes Dallas,
    Houston, New Orleans, Orlando, Tampa, St. Louis and Nashville. If you ever get a chance to
    attend just for one day...take it. It's fun and you will meet a lot of great SEC people.

    Arkansas (2-10) - Seven starters return on defense to go along with seven expected back on
    the offensive side. Texas A&M transfer Nick Starkel and SMU transfer Ben Hicks improve
    the quarterback situation. Playing Portland State, Colorado State, San Jose State and
    Western Kentucky should double the number of wins from last year.

    Vanderbilt (6-7) - The second worst defense in the SEC last season had its moments, but
    when it wasn't working, it was bad. The offense was good enough to keep up the pace in
    most games, but the Commodores were 0-5 when allowing more than 31 points. The big
    problem was a pass rush that didn't do enough to consistently get to the quarterback. The
    front three needs to generate more pressure this season. Don't hold your breath.

    Missouri player to watch: Last fall, quarterback Kelley Bryant lost his job to freshman Trevor
    Lawrence, left the team after four weeks to preserve his final year of eligibility and landed at
    Missouri. Bryant isn't competing for a job, he was virtually assured the Tigers' starting spot
    when he announced his college decision this winter. He has been nothing but impressive since
    his arrival, winning over the locker room and adding new wrinkles to the offense. Second year
    offensive coordinator Derek Dooley has already installed more plays than he had this time last
    year. In Missouri's spring game, Bryant completed his first eight passes and finished 12 of 17
    through the air. Now, he's looking to put together a season good enough to impress NFL scouts
    and end his college career on a positive note. I hope he does well this season.

    ESPN's Mel Kiper list six SEC players among his list of Top 10 prospects for
    the 2020 NFL Draft.

    QB Tua Tagovailoa Alabama
    WR Jerry Jeudy Alabama
    DT Derrick Brown Auburn
    DB Grant Delpit LSU
    OT Andrew Thomas Georgia
    QB Jake Fromm Georgia

    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

    Should have stayed in school. Eight SEC underclassmen who declared for the Draft
    went undrafted. Bad advice, ego, or just stupid these players wasted another year
    in school, perhaps bettering themselves for next year's draft.

    RB Damarea Crockett Missouri
    PK Daniel Lacamera Texas A&M
    DT Ed Alexander LSU
    RB Elijah Holyfield Georgia
    LB Quarte Sapp Tennessee
    CB Ryan Pulley Arkansas
    DB Saivion Smith Alabama
    LB Tyrel Dodson Texas A&M

    I can guarantee you Saivion Smith was advised to stay in school by Alabama's
    coaching staff. Probably the same over at Georgia with Holyfield. Too many
    people blowing smoke up these player's asses, especially family members.

    NICK SABAN has now sent more first round picks to the NFL than any coach in history.
    For his career, Saban has now sent 34 first rounders to the NFL. Former Penn State
    coach Joe Paterno previously held the record with 33 first round picks.

    HERE WE GO AGAIN. There's some question again among the three Power 5 conferences
    (Big 12, Big 10, Pac 12) that play a nine game conference schedules as to whether they're
    at a disadvantage when compared to the SEC and ACC, which play an eight-game conference
    schedule. The Big 12 and Big 10 have been left out twice; the Pac 12 has missed out three
    times. Meanwhile, the SEC and ACC have placed a team in the Playoff every year; 13 of the
    20 Playoff participants have played eight-game conference schedules. The Playoff director
    recently said that playing eight or nine conference games have nothing to do with playoff teams.
    "The selection committee looks at all 13 games. A teams entire resume."

    The SEC and ACC are not going to a nine game conference schedule anytime soon. Either the
    other conferences produce better teams or drop back to eight game schedules if they think that
    will help. It wouldn't have in the past years of the Playoffs.

    The thing about Holyfield is he was never fast. That really hurt him with the NFL stuff. But yes he got bad advice.

    LSU's ED ORGERON recently received a two-year contract extension and raise to four million
    dollars per year, which makes him the eighth highest paid head coach in the SEC. Orgeron
    will receive a $250,000 bonus for 10 regular season wins, $350,000 for 11 wins, $500,000
    for 12 wins. He will also receive a $250,000 bonus if LSU reaches the CFB Playoff Semifinals.
    The new contract comes just months after the Tigers concluded its first 10-win season since
    2013 with a Fiesta Bowl win over Central Florida. Big O is 25-9 since taking over LSU as the
    interim coach, four games into the 2016 season. The Tigers will have 16 starters returning
    (8 off, 8 def) including their starting quarterback. Good opportunity for Orgeron to reach a
    bonus or two.

    *Dave Amanda is the highest paid defensive coordinator in the SEC.
    *Joe Brady is listed as an offensive specialist. Not sure what his duties are.
    *Tommy Robinson is one of (maybe the) highest paid RB coach in the SEC. Why?
    *Dennis Johnson is one of (maybe the) lowest paid defensive line coaches in the SEC. Why?
    *S&C represents strength and conditioning.

    GEORGIA has announced a proposal to name the Sanford Stadium playing field after
    former coach and athletic director Vince Dooley. Provided the proposal is approved and
    it will be, the Dooley Field dedication would take place on September 7, the day Georgia
    opens the season. Dooley was head football coach for 27 years compiling a 201-77-10
    record. He won 6 SEC championships and the national title in 1980. He also served
    as AD for 15 years. Good move on Georgia's part.....well deserved.

    Georgia football fans may have noticed something this week. Following an update to the
    247Sports composite recruiting rankings, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets now have a
    higher recruiting ranking than Georgia. Georgia Tech is No. 10 and Georgia is No. 11 in
    the 2020 cycle. No worries Bulldog fans...short-term storyline.

    Georgia fans can worry about finishing 13th in the Southeastern Conference in tackles for
    loss and 12th in sacks a year ago, and that has to be fixed in order for Georgia to make a
    run at another SEC championship, not to mention playoff possibilities. Smart knows the
    problems and is working hard to improve the defensive production.

    TEXAS A&M, alongside in-state counterpart Texas, were the only two schools in the
    country to bring in over $200 million through their athletic departments last year,
    bringing in nearly $212 million. Rounding out the top five are Ohio State ($185.4),
    Michigan ($185.2) and Alabama at ($174.3). Georgia (6th), Florida (8th), LSU (9th)
    and Auburn (10th) make the top ten.

    Sidenote: Aggie football coach Jimbo Fisher has $67.5 million guaranteed money in
    his contract. Guessing A&M can afford it.

    While LEGALIZED BETTING is still something most SEC states don't allow, you
    can now walk into Mississippi casinos and find sportsbooks that are completely
    legal. Tennessee recently decided to join the list of states that will have legal-
    ized betting, however, the Volunteer state is only permitting online bets, not
    betting at physical brick and mortar stores. That also means that anyone who
    lives in a border state of Tennessee or visits the state will soon be able to wager
    online legally once they cross the state line.

    Before Tennesseans jump into their new found legalized sports betting. They might
    need to take a look at their own Vols team before wagering them as a home favorite.
    Over the past five seasons, the Volunteers are a money burning 6-14 when giving
    points at Neyland Stadium including 0-2 last year. (0-2, 1-3, 2-3, 1-3, 2-3) Ouch!

    AUBURN head coach Gus Malzahn enters his seventh season with the Tigers posting
    a 53-27 overall record, including 8-5 last year. Malzahn's offense finished 11th in the
    Southeastern Conference during the 2018 season averaging just 390 yards per game,
    and if you take out 179 points scored against Alabama State, Liberty and Purdue, the
    offense averaged only 22 points per game. A rocky part of the offense last year was
    the play of the offensive line, especially in the running game. This season the offensive
    line is a veteran group that might not be special, but is loaded with five senior starters.
    If nothing else, it's going to be a steadier unit that should be more dependable than last
    year, especially running the ball. Now the skill guys have to come through.

    Sidenote: The Tigers are 19-1 straight up the last 3 years when it rushes for 200 yards.
