“LSU is a wonderful place that helped me develop into the person that I am today,” Peterson said in a statement. “I hope that my donation will encourage and inspire former student-athletes to give back.”

To honor Peterson’s gift, which will go toward the renovation of LSU’s Football Operations Center, the school will name its new weight room the Peterson-Roberts weight room.

Tiffin's been out of college kicking for six seasons now. He recently opened a new RV dealership and is back home in northern Alabama. He called kicking at Alabama from 2006-09 was an incredible experience, but he doesn't miss it. He finds the pressure hard to explain.

That makes it hard to watch games like Saturday's when Griffith missed a 24-yard chip to close the first half.

A sculptor is putting the finishing touches on a Herschel Walker statue to be placed on the University of Georgia campus.

Walker, of course, was a force-of-nature tailback that turbocharged Georgia to the 1980 national championship and himself to the 1982 Heisman Trophy. A three-time consensus All-American (in three seasons, mind you), Walker entered the College Football Hall of Fame in 1999.

LSU football legend Billy Cannon firmly aboard Leonard Fournette's Heisman bandwagon (http://www.nola.com/lsu/index.ssf/2015/09/post_138.html)

Quote
Billy Cannon, LSU's one and only Heisman Trophy winner, is in his 56th season waiting for another Tiger to stand beside him in college football's most elite club.

There were some past possibilities, such as two-way star Jerry Stovall finishing second in the 1962 Heisman voting, quarterback Bret (rhymes with dirt) Jones fourth in 1972, and running back Charles Alexander and defensive back Tyrann Mathieu both fifth in 1978 and 2011, respectively.

Yet after what Cannon, winner of the 1959 Heisman, saw last Saturday vs. Auburn when LSU's Leonard Fournette ran for three touchdowns and 228 of the most vicious yards ever witnessed in Tiger Stadium, he likes his chances of finally shaking hands with a fellow purple-and-gold Heisman winner.

"I'm going to borrow what Bear Bryant said about John David," said Cannon, referring to Louisiana native and 1957 Heisman winner John David Crow of Texas A&M where Bryant coached prior to Alabama. "Bear said, 'If they don't give John David Crow the Heisman Trophy, they should quit giving it.' ...

Former #Alabama player, assistant and head-coaching candidate Richard Williamson dies of heart attack in Charlotte http://ow.ly/SzGon

Quote
Richard Williamson died of a heart attack in Charlotte, N.C., former Alabama teammate Tommy Brooker confirmed to AL.com.

A player under Bear Bryant who caught Joe Namath's first Alabama touchdown pass, Williamson went on to a long coaching career. He retired in 2010 at age 68 as the receivers coach of the Carolina Panthers.

Williamson was a candidate to be the head coach of the Crimson Tide three times. First, he was a strong name in 1990 when Gene Stallings ultimately replaced Bill Curry. He was again a candidate after Stallings' 1996 retirement and then in 2003 after Mike Price's brief tenure. He interviewed with then-president Robert Witt, as did Sylvester Croom when Mike Shula eventually got the job.

There was always interest when the job came open.

"Why wouldn't I be?'' Williamson said in 1996. "It was my university, it's got to be one of the top jobs in America."

After finishing an All-SEC career in 1962, Williamson was an assistant from 1963-67, then again from 1970-71. He had a 32-34 record in his only college head coaching job with Memphis from 1975-80. He was also the head coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 1990-91.

"He's better than I was," Walker says ... noting that Fournette is the clear frontrunner for the Heisman.

Herschel says he's extremely impressed with Fournette's athleticism AND his toughness -- "He's like a fullback because he can take punishment and keep on going."

But Walker says there are two other RBs blowing his mind this season -- Derrick Henry from Alabama and Nick Chub from Georgia.

"I'm happy to see them play! People have been discounting running backs the past couple of years. These guys are bringing back the position."

But before he set any records, or ran through any opposing safeties, Walker -- Georgia's fourth-string running back entering that game -- first had to make it onto the field.

"When we put in Herschel, it was like night and day," Bulldogs coach Vince Dooley said. "I don't think he knew where he was running, but one thing was for sure --- he was going somewhere in a hurry."

As the Bulldogs and Volunteers prepare to play yet again at Neyland Stadium on Saturday -- with Bates' son, Dillon, suiting up for the Vols as a backup linebacker -- more than a dozen people remembered one of the most famous plays in college football history.

Jadeveon Clowney enjoys month of firsts, including fatherhood http://scne.ws/CcT4tF 

Quote
HOUSTON, Texas

Jadeveon Clowney notched an important milestone last month, and it was not his first sack as an NFL player.

Clowney, the former South Carolina defensive end who was selected No. 1 overall by the Houston Texans two years ago, saw his first child born on Oct. 19 – a son named Jahlil.

“Now you’ve got something to worry about besides yourself,” Clowney said. “I worry about what is going on with him now. It’s like I have to go check on him, I have to get home and see what he’s got going on.

“Watching him grow is the thing I get the most joy out of.”

The nighttime noises? Not as joyful.

“That ain’t me,” Clowney said of his son’s nighttime feedings. “I go upstairs and sleep, tell my mom to handle that. In the daytime, he sleeps all day. He’s got his days and nights mixed up now. We are trying to change that. Nine o’clock, I’m asleep.”

Clowney needs his rest for his day job. He and the Texans (2-5) will be trying to turn around a disappointing season...

The sophomore kicker converted his fourth field goal of the season from 50 or more yards, breaking a school record that was set 46 years ago by John "Rat" Riley in 1969.

"There's been a lot of really, really good kickers come through here," Carlson said. "Recently with Wes Byrum and Cody Parkey. It means a lot. I'm not going to think about it too much in the season, but I'm sure looking back on it one day will be something special."

Carlson nailed all four of his field goals in the 27-19 loss to Ole Miss. His long kick came first -- a 52-yarder in the opening quarter -- followed by kicks of 23, 33 yards 26 yards as the Tigers struggled to get the ball into [score touchdowns inside] the end zone

Herschel Walker met Bo Jackson for the only time in college, 33 years ago #fbf http://ow.ly/UCunE

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CTtb4-lWsAAJgDS.jpg)

Quote
That meeting came on Nov. 13, 1982, 33 years ago today. Walker's top-ranked Georgia Bulldogs claimed a 19-14 victory over Jackson's Auburn Tigers at Jordan-Hare Stadium, taking the SEC championship home with them.

In fairness, Jackson was a freshman that year, though one who would rush for 829 yards and nine touchdown in his first college season. Against Georgia, he was held relatively in check, totaling 58 yards on 13 carries.

Walker, on the other hand, had one of many sterling days in what would be his Heisman Trophy season. The junior ran for 177 yards and two touchdowns on 31 carries, surpassing the 5,000-yard mark for his career during the game...

Walker left after the 1982 season for the USFL, where he played three seasons before joining the NFL's Dallas Cowboys in 1985. Jackson won his own Heisman that same year, but spurned the NFL for a year in favor of playing Major League Baseball before joining the Los Angeles Raiders midway through the 1987 season.

Walker and Jackson met only once in the pros, a 28-24 victory by Jackson's Raiders over Walker's Minnesota Vikings on Dec. 22, 1990. Neither was a major factor in that game, and Jackson's football career would end less than a month later due a hip injury suffered during the playoffs.

Quote

The sophomore kicker made two field goals in Auburn’s loss — one for 42 and the other for 38 yards. They were also the 13th and 14th straight field goals he has made.

With 14 straight made field goals, Carlson now holds the Auburn record for the category. The previous record was 12 set by Jaret Holmes in 1997.

The Colorado Springs, Colo., native now has a team-high 87 points on the year and is 20-for-23 on field goals. He’s also perfect in the PAT category this season and has made 84 straight extra points.

Alabama RB Derrick Henry: I’m not close to Tim Tebow’s level http://trib.al/iJKLTix

Quote
Tim Tebow’s SEC rushing touchdown record is within easy reach, but Derrick Henry says he has a long way to go before being considered alongside Tebow as one of the conference’s all-time greats.

The Crimson Tide running back has 22 rushing scores this year — an Alabama record — and is only one away from tying Tebow and former Auburn running back Tre Mason for the conference mark.

But Monday, he refused to put himself on Tebow’s level.

“Oh no, no no,” Henry said. “I still have a lot of stuff to work on.”

It was a privilege to go along for the ride and share the truth as Bo Jackson earned his Heisman 30 years ago. http://ow.ly/VGBiM

Quote
Thirty years ago, Auburn running back/legend Bo Jackson won the 1985 Heisman Trophy he deserved to win. If you know anything about Bo, you know that.

What you may not know is the unhappy backstory, the vicious innuendo that almost resulted in the greatest robbery in Heisman history at the expense of the greatest athlete this state has ever known.

It makes me angry to this day. At Rick Reilly and Sports Illustrated and a cheap publicity stunt of an SI cover. At national media members who didn't know Bo but thought they did.

They called him soft, labeled him a quitter, questioned his heart. They played a major role in making the 1985 Heisman race the closest vote in the award's history all the way until 2009, when Alabama's Mark Ingram edged Stanford's Toby Gerhart for the stiff-arm statue.

Break for a recent SEC player:

AL.com sports ‏@aldotcomSports 17m17 minutes ago

Until yesterday, Nov. 15, 1987 was the last time an #NFL team started a former #Alabama player at QB won the game http://ow.ly/WaIDj

Quote
On Nov. 15, 1987, the New York Giants started Jeff Rutledge at quarterback for injured regular Phil Simms. Rutledge completed 16-of-30 passes for 298 yards and a touchdown with two interceptions in the Giants' 20-17 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Until Sunday, that was the most recent NFL game in which the winning team had started a former Alabama player at quarterback. On Sunday, AJ McCarron ended the Crimson Tide's drought, guiding the Cincinnati Bengals to a 24-14 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in his first NFL start.

Like Rutledge, McCarron got the call because the regular was hurt. Last week, the Bengals' starting QB, Andy Dalton, suffered a broken thumb.

McCarron completed 15-of-21 passes for 192 yards and one touchdown without an interception. The former St. Paul's star threw a 20-yard touchdown pass to tight end Tyler Kroft in the second quarter as Cincinnati took a 21-0 lead.

Ole Miss' return to Sugar Bowl is especially meaningful for Archie Manning, Deuce McAllister http://es.pn/1RDhKgX

Quote
the last time the Rebels played in the Sugar Bowl -- Jan. 1, 1970 -- Manning started at quarterback and led Ole Miss to a 27-22 upset of Arkansas.

“It’ll be so much fun to have so many of our Ole Miss friends in town. Obviously everyone’s excited about being in the Sugar Bowl,” Manning said Monday. “Non-Ole Miss people can’t believe it’s been that long. Somebody will say it’s been 46 years since Ole Miss played in the Sugar Bowl and they’ll go, ‘You’re kidding me!’”

The Rebels (9-3) will face Oklahoma State (10-2) in the Jan. 1 bowl, marking the second straight season that Ole Miss has played in a New Year’s Six game. (Fiddy!)

“[Ole Miss fans are] extremely excited,” McAllister said. “The BCS and the playoff system has changed the landscape as far as the bowls are concerned, but you still think of the Sugar Bowl and its storied history and what it means -- just the appearances the university has had in it in the past and to be able to get back in that place, or at least in that rotation. It doesn’t show you’ve arrived, but you’re getting close to being in that [playoff] conversation.”

Daniel Carlson and Memphis kicker Jake Elliott have become quite familiar with each other in recent weeks.

Auburn and Memphis face off at Legion Field on Dec. 30 at 11 a.m. on ESPN.

“We were joking about that a little bit, kind of like a face-off here to see who is — because we have the exact same stats — to see who out of the two is the better kicker,” Carlson said. “It'll be fun. We were joking about it all week so I'm excited.”

This Peyton Manning story is odd> had HGH sent to his wife, "so that there could never be a connection to him"..Huh? http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-shutdown-corner/report--hgh--other-drugs-were-shipped-to-peyton-manning-s-wife-025038551.html …

Quote
An Indianapolis clinic reportedly shipped performance-enhacing drugs, including human-growth hormones, to the house of Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, according to a report by Al Jazeera via Huffington Post.

According to “The Dark Side,” an undercover investigation of performance-enhancing drugs in sports, pharmacist Charlie Sly, who worked at the Guyer Institute, the Indiana-based anti-aging clinic, in 2011 — when Manning was a member of the Indianapolis Colts — said the team there helped Manning rehab from a neck injury that caused him to miss the entire season that year. The following season, Manning joined the Broncos as a free agent.

Sly alleges the clinic sent growth hormone and other drugs to Ashley Manning, Manning’s wife, so that there could never be a connection to Peyton. On an undercover video, Sly said the Mannings also came to the clinic after normal business hours for intravenous treatments.

“All the time we would be sending Ashley Manning drugs,” Sly says in the video. “Like growth hormone, all the time, everywhere, Florida. And it would never be under Peyton’s name, it would always be under her name.”

Perhaps during the season he took off.

Fred Ross and De'Runnya Wilson equate to the top WR tandem in MSU history http://on.thec-l.com/1YLeT4T

Quote
Both juniors, the duo will finish among the top 10 receivers all-time for a single season in program history. Mississippi State (8-4, 4-4 SEC) plays North Carolina State (7-5, 3-5 ACC) on Wednesday (2:30 p.m. ESPN) in the Belk Bowl.

Ross holds the single season record for receptions in a season with 81. His 933 yards rank second all-time behind Mardye McDole’s 1,035 receiving yards in 1978.

“I kind of expected to be a little further than 933,” Ross said. “I’m just blessed to be able to have done what I’ve done. I just want to go out strong and finish strong.”

Ross wanted to eclipse 1,000 yards during the regular season. Wilson set even loftier expectations, adding 20 touchdowns to the 1,000-yard total as his preseason baseline.

The former Mr. Basketball in Alabama finished the regular season with 822 yards and nine touchdowns. The 6-foot-5 junior holds the No. 2 spots for single-season (tying his total from last year with nine) and career receiving touchdowns (21).

Wilson already ranks eighth on MSU’s list for single season receptions with 55. He needs 23 yards in the Belk Bowl to break into the top 10 in terms of single-season yards.

No teammates in program history have appeared on either list in the same season.

All-SEC quarterback Dak Prescott became the first Mississippi State player to win the Senior CLASS award, given to the most outstanding senior football player. (https://www.seccountry.com/mississippi-state/mississippi-state-quarterback-dak-prescott-wins-prestigious-national-award)

Quote
Prescott’s win was just the second national award won by a Mississippi State player in the 116-year history of the school’s football team — the other being Johnthan Banks’ 2012 Jim Thorpe award for the best defensive back in football.

Prescott is the 12th SEC player to win the award, and the first since Tim Tebow in 2009, who was also coached by Dan Mullen.

“Class is something that has epitomized Dak Prescott’s entire career,” Mullen said. “He has been a tremendous ambassador for our university and football team, and I am proud of him capturing the Senior CLASS Award. Whether it was his work in the community or his leadership on the field, Dak has raised the standard of excellence at Mississippi State. He will leave Starkville with an undergraduate degree, a master’s degree and a lifetime of memories.”

Last year, Prescott received an undergraduate degree in educational psychology. He completed a master’s degree in workforce leadership in December.

Quote
The Hall of Fame actually represents closer to one one-hundredth of a percent of all college football players. And as of Wednesday, Kentucky all-time great Art Still is officially one of them.

Still played at Kentucky from 1974-77 under coach Fran Curci and was part of the Wildcats’ historic 10-1 season as a senior. The defensive end accumulated 327 tackles in his career. Sacks were not recorded during his four years in college and tackles for a loss weren’t kept track of until his senior season, when he collected 22 — still a school record.

Still was taken by the Kansas City Chiefs with the second overall pick in the 1978 NFL Draft behind Earl Campbell...

Overlooked and underrated, Arkansas RB Alex Collins one of SEC's best http://es.pn/1RpuOFi

Quote
MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Bill Snyder just finished his 24th season at Kansas State. He’s seen a lot of good running backs in his day. But Alex Collins of Arkansas might be near the top of that list.

"He wasn’t any different than what we saw on videotape," Snyder said Saturday’s Liberty Bowl loss to Arkansas. "He’s a very explosive young guy. He runs downhill extremely well, but he can make you miss. He’s an extremely talented young guy.

"As you look, you have a plethora of exciting and talented running backs in the SEC. And he’s at the top of the list, I think."

He’s the only current running back in the conference to rush for more than 1,000 yards in three straight seasons.

"The kid is unbelievable," Arkansas offensive lineman Sebastian Tretola said after the bowl game. "He runs angry, he runs mad, the legs never stop, and that adds to our mentality. The offensive linemen keep going -- even if you miss your block, he might make that guy miss, so you better keep running because you might help him 20 or 30 yards down the field."

Leonard Fournette has one big advantage over Christian McCaffrey in the race for next year’s Heisman http://sec.news/1Ric7W5

Quote
Fournette bore the look of a Heisman shoo-in for the first two months of this season; but a desultory effort against Alabama (31 rushing yards, one TD) — coupled with LSU’s 30-16 defeat and Derrick Henry’s 200-yard eruption on the same field — knocked Fournette from the ranks of being an unimpeachable front-runner

In fact, five weeks later, Fournette didn’t even garner an invite to New York City, as one of the three Heisman finalists (Alabama’s Henry, Stanford’s McCaffrey, Clemson QB Deshaun Watson) — despite finishing with the nation’s best per-game average for rushing yards.

That snub was the perfect catalyst for Fournette’s easy-to-predict explosion in the Texas Bowl. Facing Texas Tech — one of the country’s worst rushing defenses — the LSU sophomore absurdly amassed 256 total yards (212 rushing) and five touchdowns (four rushing).

Derrick Henry (@KingHenry_2) has broken several #Alabama records, including 3 last night http://ow.ly/WXXwa 

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CYjyTPLWcAQhpe0.jpg)

Quote
Henry finished the season with an SEC-record 2,219 rushing yards and a conference-record 28 rushing touchdowns.

Henry's 2,219 rushing yards ranks as the fifth-most in a single-season in FBS history.

The 28 rushing touchdowns are tied for eighth-most.

Henry broke several prominent Alabama records, including three Monday night.

The biggest: He passed former Tide great Shaun Alexander for first place on the Tide's career rushing list despite only getting 36 carries as a freshman in 2013 and splitting carries with T.J. Yeldon as a sophomore last year before becoming Alabama's lead back this season.

Through three seasons, Henry has rushed for 3,591 yards.

Alexander rushed for 3,565 yards from 1996-99.

Henry also broke the Tide's record for 100-yard rushing games in a single-season and a career.

It was Henry's 10th 100-yard rushing game this season.

With the three touchdowns Monday night, Henry now has 42 career rushing touchdowns, which is tied with Ingram for the most in school history.

Derrick Henry is unquestionably one of the greatest players in the history of #Alabama football http://ow.ly/WYeZH  via @JoeGoodmanJr

Quote
The smoke from Alabama's victory cigars was all but gone on Monday night when Derrick Henry and Shaun Alexander finally had time to share a quiet moment together.

"When you got leaders who push everyone by example that means everything, and that's what he does," said Alexander, the Crimson Tide's previous record holder in carries in a season (302).

Alexander knows it's Henry's time.

Alexander, who rushed for 3,565 yards at Alabama, calls Henry his "nephew," and Henry refers to Alexander as his uncle. The two statistically greatest running backs in Alabama history share a bond deeper than football. For the first time in their relationship they likely celebrated as two former Alabama running backs after the Crimson Tide's 45-40 victory against Clemson.

Henry hasn't made it official, but those closest to him are certain his junior season at Alabama was his last. He did in three seasons what it took Alexander to do in four.

Still closely connected to his alma mater, Alexander began mentoring Henry when he was a freshman. He played a role in convincing Henry not to transfer before his sophomore season, and Alexander then helped keep Henry grounded once he found success.

"This game can be put in the wrong place of importance, and if it's put in the wrong place at this great university, it can overwhelm," Alexander said.

10 things you should know about Bo: http://es.pn/1JKRrD9 

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CYnvON7UoAASPnV.jpg)

Do you know Bo?

Quote
Bo Jackson, the supremely strong and swift Los Angeles Raiders running back, suffered a severe hip injury while playing in an AFC divisional playoff game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Jan. 13, 1991. The injury was later complicated by a condition called avascular necrosis, which impedes blood flow and destroys bone cells and cartilage. Although Jackson didn't know it at the time, his football career was over at age 28.

Jackson had previously won the 1985 Heisman Trophy at Auburn and starred as an outfielder for the Kansas City Royals. His ability to outrun and run over defenders was legendary on football fields, as was his hitting power and mighty throwing arm in baseball stadiums. He remains the only athlete to play in the MLB All-Star Game and be named to the NFL's Pro Bowl.

On the 25th anniversary of Jackson's last NFL game, we present 10 things to know about one of the greatest athletes of all time.

In 2003 Georgia FS/LB Thomas Davis was recipient of the Iron Man Award which is presented to a player who "shows up every day for work, never late, and strains his potential in every endeavor"

In one respect it’s fitting the Carolina Panthers’ longest-tenured player secured Sunday’s victory to send them to next week’s NFC Championship Game.

On the other hand it’s worth asking: Why was veteran linebacker Thomas Davis not only on the “hands team,” but designated as the player to catch the kick? (http://www.charlotteobserver.com/sports/nfl/carolina-panthers/article55214010.html)

Quote
Davis cleanly fielded Steven Hauschka’s onside kick with 1:11 remaining to thwart Seattle’s second-half comeback and lift the Panthers to a 31-24 victory in the divisional-round game.

Linebackers are usually on the “hands team” to block for receivers and tight ends.

Not Davis.

“They joke about it all the time. It was funny the first time I went out there everybody was like, ‘What’s TD doing out there? He’s walking out there with hands (team),’” Davis said. “But just know that in that situation I’m going to give everything that I have to the team and make sure I come away with that football.”

Special teams coordinator Bruce DeHaven says he puts the players on the field he believes can best win the game.

“Hands team is like a parachute,” DeHaven said. “Don’t need it very often, but when you do you really need it.”

Davis is now 2-for-2 in onside recoveries during his first season on the hands team. He also grabbed Dallas kicker Dan Bailey’s onside attempt near the end of the Panthers’ Thanksgiving Day win.

Danny Trevathan just the fifth former Wildcat to play for multiple Super Bowl teams http://cjky.it/1VnwZJk

Quote
Former Kentucky star and current Denver Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan ended the regular season as the Broncos’ leading tackler (109) after starting 15 games. He also totaled two interceptions and one touchdown. The standout season was all the more impressive considering he was limited to just three games in 2014 due to a knee injury. As recognition for his return to the field, Trevathan was named one of two winners of the Broncos’ 2015 Ed Block Courage Award.

In two playoff games, Trevathan has totaled 14 tackles.

The Super Bowl berth is already the second in Trevathan’s young career. While Trevathan and his teammates will have few fond memories of Super Bowl XLVIII, a 43-8 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in 2014, Trevathan did lead the team with 12 tackles in the game.

Gus Malzahn: Cam Newton has chance to be "the best that ever played" http://s.al.com/Ye9DBCC  @Panthers

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CZvXbtIW0AEzC7n.jpg)

Quote
"He's got a chance, and I said this when he first came out, he's got a chance to be one of the best to ever play or the best that ever played," Malzahn said on SportsCenter late Tuesday night. "He's got everything. He's got a work ethic, he's just a great competitor, he's very coachable, he can run, he can make all the throws. He's got everything it takes. Everybody is seeing that now and it's going to be fun to watch."

The run to the Super Bowl reminds Malzahn a lot of Newton's run to the BCS National Championship in 2010, his only season at Auburn.

"That's the it factor," Malzahn said. "The special ones have it and he definitely showed that year that he had it. As the games got bigger, he played his best. He's got the it factor."

When did Malzahn realize he had something special with Newton? It was Week 4 of the season, when Auburn defeated South Carolina 35-27 inside Jordan-Hare Stadium. You may remember the first of many Heisman-like moments for Newton from that game: when he leaped from the 7-yard line like "Superman," said Malzahn, into the end zone.

Tony Barnhart has a nice piece on 2 former SEC quarterbacks squaring off in Super Bowl. Read his column: http://gridironnow.com/peyton-manning-vs-cam-newton-a-super-story-line/

Quote
On January 9, 1977, Minnesota’s Fran Tarkenton (Georgia) took on Oakland’s Kenny Stabler (Alabama) in Super Bowl XI. Oakland dominated 32-14. Tarkenton, who was 37 and nearing the end of his Hall of Fame career, threw for 205 yards and two interceptions, one of which was returned 75 yards for a touchdown by Willie Brown. Stabler was coming off one of the best seasons as a pro, completing almost 67 percent of his passes for 2,737 yards and 27 touchdowns. He was 12-of-19 for 180 yards and a touchdown in the win. Tarkenton, who will turn 76 on Feb. 3, went on to great success as an entrepreneur and TV personality. Stabler passed away in July at the age of 69.

* On February 4, 2007, Manning — playing in the first of his four Super Bowls — led the Indianapolis Colts to a 29-17 win over the Chicago Bears in Super Bowl XLI. Manning was 25-of-38 for 247 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Manning’s counterpart with the Bears, former Florida quarterback Rex Grossman, was 20-of-28 for 165 yards, a TD and two interceptions.

Manning, who turns 40 on March 23, surely is playing his final game. What better way to go out than to play your last game in Super Bowl 50? Win or lose, it would be a fitting exclamation point to one of the greatest careers in the history of the sport.

And Manning would be doing it in season in which he was benched for poor play while struggling with an injured foot..

“I think it’s one of the greatest accomplishments in sports,” said Duke coach David Cutcliffe, who was Peyton’s offensive coordinator at Tennessee and Eli’s coach at Ole Miss. “You have to remember that he was considered done by the Colts when he went to Denver. Then a few weeks ago, he was buried by just about everybody. He was hurt and he didn’t know if he was going to get well. Now he’s playing in his second Super Bowl in three years.”

Quote
During my rookie year in the NFL, I met a teenage boy named Justin. He was a big Ole Miss fan, and a big fan of mine. He had cancer. His head was bald from chemotherapy. He had been going through a really tough time.

I was on a trip back to Mississippi visiting a Children’s Hospital with my dad. I guess Justin didn’t find out we were coming until right before we got there, because he asked me for an autograph, and he had a marker, but he didn’t have anything for me to sign. No paper, no football, no poster.

So he asked me to sign his head.

I looked around the room, thinking, Should I? Is this weird?

The hospital room was small. There were cameras, plus my dad and some hospital staff in there with us. It was the first time anybody had requested I sign a part of their body, so I didn’t know how to handle it.

Should I?

But Justin was adamant. He wasn’t going to be denied.

So I signed his head.

Quote
MOBILE, Ala. – Texans outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney’s sprained foot is healing well and he didn’t require surgery, according to coach Bill O’Brien.

Clowney missed the Texans’ 30-0 AFC wild-card playoff game loss to the Kansas City Chiefs and their regular-season finale against the Jacksonville Jaguars due to the injury.

“JD is feeling better about his foot,” O’Brien said at the Senior Bowl all-star game.

Clowney finished the season with a career-high 4 1/2 sacks and 40 tackles with one forced fumble, but was limited to 13 games and nine starts due to injuries.

Since being drafted first overall in 2014, the former South Carolina star has dealt with a myriad of injuries.

Great column from my old boss @jgreesontfp on Peyton Manning helping the families of Chattanooga’s fallen five: http://bit.ly/1Ks6AcS

Quote
Tracy Smith's son, Navy Petty Officer Randall Smith, was one of this city's fallen five, the men who lost their lives here last July. Tracy moved here from Paulding, Ohio, in mid-November to be closer to Randall's widow and three daughters.

In the months since the shootings, he watched Manning's gestures and fundraising efforts help his family cope with the tragedy.

"He's called Angie a few times to check on her and the girls," Tracy said Wednesday during a break from his job at the Fort Oglethorpe Home Depot. "Everyone in Chattanooga has been incredible to our family, but to have someone who has done so much in his life like Peyton has "

Tracy paused for a moment, and then said softly, "For him to reach out and do this, it really resonates. It's easy to forget that quote-unquote celebrities are real people and we all have to look out for each other."

Manning's efforts — he and U.S. Sen. Bob Corker jump-started the fundraising for the primary fund to help the families — have gone beyond the money.

Although Tracy was quick to say it was much appreciated when the Manning-aided fund (without the flag-waving fanfare some celebrities may have craved) bought Angie a new car in December when their family's vehicle was failing. "It's just real nice to have that peace of mind to know they are going to get where they're going safely," he said.

Manning has sent letters to all the families and paid tribute to each service member in each of Denver's first five games this season by writing their names inside his shoes and dedicating his performance to them. Fittingly, the Broncos started the year 5-0 on their way to this Super conclusion.

Here's the story we did on Von Miller during his transition from Texas A&M to NFL, poultry science talk included: http://sportsday.dallasnews.com/college-sports/texasamaggies/2011/04/26/how-von-miller-went-from-almost-leaving-am-to-the-second-pick-in-the-draft …

Quote
This story originally ran in April 2011.

COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Von Miller made his return to Kyle Field recently sporting a hurt-your-eyes, neon-green T-shirt and matching trendy new Nike high-tops that he’d picked up in New York.

But it was the shiny new Aggie ring that the quarterback-harassing Texas A&M linebacker — and soon-to-be top-5 NFL draft pick — constantly twisted on and off his finger that stood out most.

“The biggest part of anything is I got my Aggie ring,” said Miller, of DeSoto. “It was extremely emotional. I worked extremely hard for this, and now I have something to show for it.”

To Miller, the ring represents why he’s in his dream position heading into Thursday’s NFL draft...

Miller’s path to the NFL came close to veering from College Station. Sherman took over at A&M after Miller’s first season and cracked down. After Miller missed study halls and class, Sherman suspended him for the spring game.

“That was probably the best thing that ever happened,” Miller said. “He was like, ‘You can transfer if you want. I’ll sign your papers, anywhere you want to go.’”

Miller threw his stuff into the back of his 1981 Silverado and started cruising toward home. He’d gotten about 45 minutes down Highway 6 when his father, who is also named Von, gave him an order over the phone: “Turn around.”

Former Kentucky football star linebacker Danny Trevathan did not disappoint in his second career Super Bowl appearance.

Trevathan led the Super Bowl champion Denver Broncos with eight total tackles and recovered two fumbles in the 24-10 win over the Carolina Panthers.

Trevathan was asked where the Broncos’ defense ranks among the pantheon of NFL greats.

“You're going to ask me? No. 1. No. 1 in my opinion, over '85 Bears," he told NFL.com. "If not No. 1, No. 2. I feel like we did a good job playing our games. It wasn't ever pretty, but when you put it in our defense's hand we always come up with that win."

Trevathan also took time to praise Broncos defensive coordinator Wade Phillips.

"For him not to have a job last year, that's bogus man," he said. "This is one of the best defensive coordinators ever."

Trevathan was also among the Broncos players to criticize Cam Newton’s play...

This is 2016, a time where no image, snapshot or incident capable of being mashed into a Vine or captured in 140 characters is allowed to escape the parameters of armchair psychology.

And so social media had to sink its little tentacles into Eli Manning as Sunday night became Monday morning, lambasting him for his reaction, or lack of it, to the touchdown that put his brother Peyton on the brink of winning Super Bowl 50 against the Carolina Panthers (Vine at link).

The common theme that quickly emerged suggested the youngest of the Manning brothers was somehow displeased at his elder sibling clinching another slice of history and drawing level with him by securing a second NFL title. (http://www.clarionledger.com/story/sports/nfl/broncos/2016/02/08/eli-manning-face-reaction-super-bowl-peyton/80019286)

Quote
A football player’s brain is different. A quarterback knows not to start celebrating in the biggest game of all until it is officially done and the silverware is in the bag. They’ve seen too much unpredictable stuff for that, or perhaps you've forgotten that Eli's New York Giants lost six of 10 games this season after leading or tied with less than two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter.

Also, notice the moment of hesitation as Eli shifts his eye sideways with uncertainty. Remember back to the play that gave the Broncos their only offensive touchdown.

Anderson ran into a pile of players from the 1-yard line and though the officials signaled touchdown it would have been easy to fear that the running back might have been ruled down inches short.

Eli later confirmed that he was focused on the rest of the game, telling TMZ Sports, "I was focused on whether he'd go for two and knew the defense had to get some stops."

If Eli was not particularly animated, he wasn’t the only one. While the front of the TV shot is a whirlwind of activity take a look at the gentleman on Eli’s left as you watch it. Look at the lack of reaction. Yep, that’s right, it is his father, Archie Manning. And he’s not smiling either...

4 being inducted tonight into UGA’s ‘Circle of Honor’ http://sec.news/20sRndC

No word on the 'Circle of Trust' and 'Circle of the Untrustables'

Quote
They’ve added four names for tonight’s Circle of Honor induction gala. Peter Anderson (football), Matias Boeker (men’s tennis), Leah Brown (gymnastics) and Maritza Correia McClendon (swimming) bring to 66 the number who have been bestowed with this distinction. And it’s an extraordinary honor to be sure.

The Circle of Honor was started in 1996 by the UGA Athletic Association “to recognize and pay tribute to extraordinary student-athletes and coaches who, by their performance and conduct, have brought honor to the University and themselves, and who by their actions have contributed to the tradition of the Georgia Bulldogs.” The criteria also stipulates that each recipient has earned his or her academic degree.

Peter Anderson

Anchored the Bulldogs’ offensive line at center from 1983-85 and garnered consensus All-America honors as a senior. In 1985, he became the first Vince Dooley-coached player to be named the team’s permanent captain at mid-season (an honor usually reserved until the end of the season). Anderson was an All-SEC choice in 1984 and 1985.

Anderson was named the Atlanta Touchdown Club’s Southeastern Lineman of the Year and was chosen as the team’s Most Outstanding Offensive Player in 1985. He also won the 1985 Evans Johnson Award as the player recognized by the coaches as exhibiting leadership, loyalty, dedication and sportsmanship and the William K. Jenkins Award as the team’s Most Valuable Lineman...

Von Miller keeps trolling Cam Newton. Watch the #SuperBowl MVP talk "science" on @nbcSNL http://ow.ly/YlElB

Quote
On "Saturday Night Live," Miller was supposed to talk about the first detection of gravitational waves -- because Miller studied science at Texas A&M. (He majored in poultry science.) Miller worked Newton (Cam, not Isaac) into every bit of his skit until playing off Albert Einstein, who predicted the existence of gravitational waves 100 years ago, by saying, "ME=MVP."

SNL skits are scripted by a writing team.

Broadcasting opportunities could be awaiting Peyton Manning http://sec.news/1RGIjSf

Quote
CBS, ESPN, Fox and NBC would all like to add the former Tennessee quarterback to their on-air staffs for NFL broadcasts, according to a report by AwfulAnnouncing.com’s Ian Casselberry.

Manning hasn’t offered any insight into his future plans. He hasn’t even announced if he will retire from the NFL after leading the Denver Broncos 24-10 victory over the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50. Manning, 39, just completed his 18th season in the NFL and has dealt various injuries recently, including a foot injury that forced him to miss six games this season...

There has also been talk that Manning could join an NFL team in a front office role like Broncos’ general manager John Elway. The Tennessee Titans have made a push to hire Manning, according to Sporting News reporter Bob Hille. Manning also has close ties to the Cleveland Browns, where longtime University of Tennessee booster is the team owner...

With experience under center for the @Bengals this season, @10AJMcCarron is now one of Alabama's top 10 NFL passers http://ow.ly/YqJmS

Quote
AJ McCarron stepped in at quarterback for the Cincinnati Bengals down the stretch of the 2015 NFL season after Andy Dalton suffered a broken thumb. In doing so, McCarron got a former Alabama QB back under center in the NFL and also, with three-and-three-quarters games' worth of experience, moved into the top 10 among former Crimson Tide passers in the NFL.

During the 2015 season, McCarron became the first former Alabama player to start an NFL regular-season game at quarterback since Greg McElroy on Dec. 23, 2012. McCarron also became the first ex-Crimson Tide player to be the starting quarterback for the winning team in an NFL game since Jeff Rutledge on Nov. 15, 1987.

Owen Hauck, who won two state titles and had a 284-130-4 career record coaching at four area high schools, died Wednesday morning. The Fort Thomas resident was 88.

Former NFL running back Shaun Alexander, who played for Boone County from 1992-94, will be in town next week to remember Hauck.

Alexander told WCPO.com Wednesday afternoon he has complete respect for Hauck, not only as a coach but also as a principled man.

Alexander, arguably the greatest running back in Greater Cincinnati high school history, said he learned life lessons he applies to this day.

Hauck used to travel to the University of Alabama to watch Alexander play for the Crimson Tide. The coach also made it to Seattle to watch the former Parade Magazine and USA Today All-American play for the Seahawks.

Alexander spoke by phone to Hauck in recent days.

Alexander, who rushed for 6,662 yards and scored 110 touchdowns in his prep career, tweeted several of Hauck’s quotes throughout Wednesday morning.

Woody Paige: Peyton Manning will ride off into the sunset
According to two sources, Manning will acknowledge his retirement decision by the end of this week (http://www.denverpost.com/paige/ci_29570921/paige-broncos-peyton-manning-will-ride-off-into)

Quote
His Bronc riding days are over; the last rodeo is done.

Peyton Manning is saying goodbye; it's been lots of fun.

According to two sources, Manning will acknowledge his decision by the end of this week.

These sources also say that Peyton, who will turn 40 on March 24, is leaving the Broncos and retiring from the game he has played competitively for 29 years.

It's implausible that Manning would opt to sign with another team for one season.

Manning's final play for the Broncos was a handoff to C.J. Anderson for 5 yards with 1:22 remaining in Super Bowl 50. Manning's first play with Denver was a handoff to Willis McGahee in the opening moments of a September game in 2012.

In between, Manning threw for 151 touchdowns and 19,062 yards.

With Manning, the Broncos won four consecutive AFC West titles. The Broncos played in two Super Bowls, winning one.

Peyton Manning wants to keep playing, but teams aren’t interested, per report http://sec.news/1QJ3D4c

Quote
On ESPN’s Mike & Mike radio show, Schefter said that Manning would “like to continue playing if given the choice,” but he also implied that there aren’t many teams ready to sign the 14-time Pro Bowl quarterback.

“In a perfect world, he’d like to keep playing. The question is who is going to give him that opportunity?” Schefter told ESPN’s Mike Golic. “It’s tough to identify that team right now that’s willing to sign him to a deal that makes it worthwhile to him, that allows him to keep playing. Does he want to move to another city? Because I think everyone accepts and understands that he won’t be back in Denver, so the question is where does he go and play?”

Schefter said that quarterback-needy teams like the Houston Texans and Los Angeles Rams aren’t interested in Manning, who will turn 40 this month.

“There are a couple of other opportunities that he’ll have,” Schefter said. “TV has expressed interest in him and my understanding is one network would like him to be a color analyst during games and could potentially put together something. I don’t know if he’d want to do that, but there are multiple teams that have already expressed interest in him working in a front office capacity. Eventually I think he winds up doing that, but not before he exhausts all options, and I think he’d like to continue playing if given the choice.”

AJ McCarron tells radio show he almost transferred to #OleMiss http://ow.ly/Zbe5e 

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Cc-SPohWEAAHJnd.jpg)

Quote
McCarron said he came closer to playing for Oklahoma than he previously indicated. The night before committing, he told his parents it would be the Sooners.

"Then I changed the next day," he told the Yahoo audience.

Five years later, McCarron's final collegiate game was a Sugar Bowl loss to Oklahoma.

McCarron, who went on to win two national championships as a starter, almost never made it to that position.

"When I got there, I thought about transferring to Ole Miss when, towards the end of my freshman year," McCarron said. "I really thought about transferring. I had to talk that over and I ended up staying and everything worked out."

No follow-up questions were asked on the radio show, but McCarron responded via Twitter when asked by AL.com why he considered leaving Alabama.

"Same reason every young kid goes through when he gets to college you just want to play right then. Nothing big at all," McCarron said.

McCarron redshirted his first season in which Alabama won the 2009 national championship. He became the primary backup to Greg McElroy in 2010 before taking over the top job from 2011-13. Top recruit Phillip Sims was set to arrive in Tuscaloosa the spring of 2010 to begin the competition that was resolved more than a year later.

Ole Miss was then coached by Houston Nutt.

Former Ole Miss defensive end Greg Hardy said he was innocent in the case regarding the assault of his ex-girlfriend Nicole Holder (https://www.seccountry.com/mississippi/greg-hardy-says-hes-never-put-his-hand-on-any-women)

Quote
“I’ve never put my hand on any women,” Hardy said in the interview. “In my whole entire life, no sir. That’s just how we we’re raised. As you can tell, like I said again, it’s the Bible belt. It’s just something that’s, I wouldn’t even say frowned upon, just something that’s nonexistent in most southern homes.”

Hardy was convicted on charges of domestic violence in 2014, but the case was thrown out during the appeals process in February 2015 when Holder stopped cooperating with authorities.

During the interview, Schefter asked Hardy to explain how he did nothing wrong when there are pictures of Holder, which seem to indicate that foul play was involved.

“I will stop you there and say that I didn’t say that I didn’t do anything wrong,” Hardy said. “That situation occurred and that situation was handled, but saying that I did nothing wrong is a stretch. But saying that I am innocent is correct. Yessir.”

Schefter looked to clarify things further by asking, “Did you ever put your hands on her?”

“No sir,” Hardy said.

He is currently a free agent.

Daniel Carlson had a banner sophomore year. Here's what he's focused on now: http://ow.ly/10kIll

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CfXHVkKWAAAtVuA.jpg)

Quote
Auburn's returning placekicker set a pair of school records and was named one of three Lou Groza Award finalists. Where would the Tigers be without him?

Carlson feels little pressure and is focused more on the mental side of his game than the physical side. While Carlson made 27 kicks last year and only missed four, two of them were inside the 20-29 yard range.

"A lot of fundamentals," Carlson said. "I missed two short kicks. Muscle memory will clean those up. A lot of it is mental. I need to be focused. I'm just trying to mature in that sense."

Carlson and his teammates are taking of advantage of the increased reps they have this spring to work out the kinks.

"(I can) kick my leg out a little bit extra because I don't have a game I'm trying to be fresh for," Carlson said. "I'm happy with where I'm at right now. The snap, hold and kick is nice and smooth and the line's doing a great job blocking up front. I think we're learning a lot, improving and hopefully it will pay off next season."

Carlson isn't ruling out the possibility of kicking professionally. He's curious to see how Florida State's Roberto Aguayo fares in the NFL Draft after becoming the first kicker in 16 year to forego his senior season. Carlson has also remained in touch with former Auburn kicker Cody Parkey.

"He's had a difficult journey," Carlson said of Parkey. "The first year he was a Pro Bowler and then he gets hurt. Now he's on IR (injured reserve.)

"I'm just going to get my degree, I'm graduating this summer and then hopefully I'll get an MBA here or something. If football works out, it works out, but I'm going to try and have four solid years playing here and hopefully break some records along the way, you never know. I'm just going to do what I can to help the team. I'm really enjoying it here. I'm happy to be here."

1) Hillis was a member of Arkansas’ three-headed monster backfield from a decade ago, featuring Darren McFadden and Felix Jones.

2) With the Browns in 2010, Hillis incredibly tallied 1,654 total yards (1,177 rushing) and 13 touchdowns — a breakout campaign for the former seventh-round pick.

3) The following summer, Hillis made the cover of the popular “NFL Madden 12”

Could the recently-retired Peyton Manning be on his way to the broadcast booth? If he heeds the advice of longtime broadcaster John Madden, the answer will be no. (https://www.seccountry.com/tennessee/report-peyton-manning-consults-nfl-legend-on-potential-analyst-position)

Madden advised Manning to “get a piece of ownership or go the Elway route”...

[Manning] is reportedly considering an offer from CBS Sports to be an analyst alongside play-by-play man Jim Nantz.

He's been a winner at every level.

Quote
Percy Harvin already was a sought-after football recruit by the time his Landstown High team entered University of Richmond Stadium for the Group AAA Division 6 championship game.

Fast, flashy and elusive, he had shown glimpses of superstardom throughout his junior season and was on just about every college's most-wanted list.

But on that December afternoon - 10 years ago this week - Harvin cemented his stature as a high school football legend.

He piled up 476 all-purpose yards, including 292 on offense, scored five touchdowns and intercepted three passes in a 47-20 victory over James Robinson.

His remarkable game - on Dec. 11, 2004 - capped a 14-0 season for the Eagles and gave the Beach District its first football state champion.

While Harvin has since won two NCAA national titles and a Super Bowl, he holds fond memories of one of his earliest championships.

Lacy disappointed many Packers fans and fantasy owners last season. In addition to his performance decline, Lacy faced questions about his weight and conditioning, even publicly from Packers coach Mike McCarthy.

After an offseason training with Tony Horton, founder of the popular workout system “P90X,” Lacy may be back to his old self.

“I was going to crack a joke, but I won’t. He looked good,” Packers receiver Jordy Nelson said Monday.

SEC Football Colour by Numbers; NFL Draft Edition (http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2016/04/nfl_draft_by_the_numbers_sec_c.html)

Quote
4 Consecutive NFL drafts have included at least one Alabama linebacker, with Reggie Ragland expected to continue the streak this year. Alabama has had a streak of five drafts with a linebacker picked, from 1979 through 1983 when Rich Wingo, Barry Krauss, Wayne Hamilton, E.J. Junior, Thomas Boyd and Robbie Jones were selected. In the current streak, Courtney Upshaw, Dont'a Hightower, Nico Johnson, C.J. Mosley and Xzavier Dickson have been drafted.

7 SEC players have been the first offensive interior lineman selected in an NFL Draft, an honor that could go to Ole Miss OT Laremy Tunsil in 2016. The SEC players who have been the first offensive linemen selected in a draft are Auburn OT Greg Robinson (drafted second overall by the Rams in 2014), Alabama OT Chris Samuels (third by the Redskins in 2000), Georgia T Bernard Williams (14th by the Eagles in 1994), Tennessee T Charles McRae (seventh by the Buccaneers in 1991), Tennessee T Steve Delong (sixth by the Bears in 1965), Ole Miss T Jim Dunaway (third by the Vikings in 1963) and Alabama C Vaughn "Cisco" Mancha (fifth by the NY Yanks in 1948).

8 NFL drafts have passed since an Auburn linebacker was picked. This is the longest position drought on the defensive side of the ball in the SEC...

9 SEC players have been the first wide receiver selected in an NFL Draft, an honor that could go to Ole Miss' Laquon Treadwell in this year's draft. The SEC  players who were the first WR selected include Alabama's Amari Cooper (chosen fourth in 2015 by the Raiders), Georgia's A.J. Green (fourth in 2011 by the Bengals), Tennessee's Donte Stallworth (13th in 2002 by the Saints), Florida's Ike Hilliard (seventh in 1997 by the Giants), Auburn's Alexander Wright (26th in 1990 by the Cowboys), Tennessee's Willie Gault (18th in 1983 by the Bears), Tennessee's Anthony Hancock (11th in 1982 by the Chiefs), Florida's Wes Chandler (third in 1978 by the Saints) and Tennessee's Stanley Morgan (25th in 1977 by the Patriots).

12 Consecutive NFL drafts have included an LSU defensive lineman – a streak that is likely to end this year. LSU defensive linemen who have been drafted during the streak are Marcus Spears, Claude Wroten, Kyle Williams, Melvin Oliver, Chase Pittman, Glenn Dorsey, Tyson Jackson, Ricky Jean-Francois, Al Woods, Drake Nevis, Lazarius Levingston, Michael Brockers, Barkevious Mingo, Sam Montgomery, Lavar Edwards, Bennie Logan, Ego Ferguson and Danielle Hunter.

12 Players from the SEC have been the first center selected in the NFL Draft, an honor expected to go to Alabama's Ryan Kelly this year. Florida's Maurkice Pouncey in 2010, Ole Miss' Chris Spencer in 2005, LSU's Kevin Mawae in 1994, Kentucky's Dermontti Dawson in 1988, Tennessee's Robert Shaw in 1979, Auburn's Lee Gross in 1975, Tennessee's Bob Johnson in 1968, Kentucky's Irv Goode in 1962, Georgia Tech's Larry Morris in 1955, Ole Miss' Ed Beatty in 1954, LSU's George Tarasovic in 1952 and Alabama's Vaughn "Cisco" Mancha (Yankees) in 1948 are the SEC players who were the first centers selected in their draft years.

13 SEC players have been the first defensive lineman selected in an NFL Draft, an honor that could go to Alabama's A'Shawn Robinson or Jarran Reed. The SEC players who have been the first defensive linemen selected in a draft are Kentucky's Bob Gain (drafted fifth overall in 1951 by the Packers), Tennessee's Doug Atkins (11th in 1953 by the Browns), LSU's Earl Leggett (13th in 1957 by the Bears), Kentucky's Art Still (second in 1978 by the Chiefs), Alabama's Mike Pitts (16th in 1983 by the Falcons), Alabama's John Copeland (fifth in 1993 by the Bengals), Florida's Kevin Carter (sixth in 1995 by the Rams), LSU's Anthony McFarland (15th in 1999 by the Buccaneers), Florida's Gerald Warren (third in 2001 by the Browns), Kentucky's Dewayne Robertson (fourth in 2003 by the Jets), LSU's Tyson Jackson (third in 2009 by the Chiefs) Alabama's Marcell Dareus (third in 2011 by the Bills) and South Carolina's Jadeveon Clowney (first in 2014 by the Texans). That list contains only players designated as DT or DE by their drafting teams. Three more SEC players can safely be added to the first-defensive-lineman-to-be-drafted list even though they were designated only with a T for tackle on draft day -- Kentucky's Lou Michaels (fourth in 1958 by the Rams), Ole Miss' Jim Dunaway (third in 1963 by the Vikings) and Tennessee's Steve DeLong (sixth in 1965 by the Bears).

Debating the SEC's best quarterbacks in the past decade (http://espn.go.com/blog/sec/post/_/id/116979/take-two-debating-the-secs-best-quarterbacks-in-the-past-decade)

Quote
Greg Ostendorf: I can make a case for Dak Prescott as one of the five best quarterbacks. He broke every record in school history and made a middling Mississippi State program relevant in the SEC. If you put Aaron Murray or AJ McCarron in Prescott’s shoes, do they have the same success? Probably not.

My biggest gripe might be the order of those five quarterbacks. Obviously, Tim Tebow belongs at No. 1. Nobody is arguing that. But Johnny Manziel over Cam Newton? I realize that Manziel played two seasons to Newton’s one. I get that they both won Heisman Trophies. Newton won a national championship, though.

David Ching: Oddly enough, I appeared on a radio show in Arkansas last week to discuss my quarterback rankings and one of the hosts was former Razorbacks quarterback Tyler Wilson. My heart sank as soon as I heard his name because I nearly included him on the “just missed the cut” list -- his SEC-high 3,638 yards in 2011 certainly deserved a mention -- before ultimately leaving him off. Thankfully he didn’t take it out on me on the air. My apologies, Tyler, if you read this.

We discussed another valid criticism of my top five on that radio show, however: Matthew Stafford’s exclusion from the list. Stafford was one of two No. 1 overall NFL draft picks who I left off (the other was LSU’s JaMarcus Russell). Obviously if you go only by pro-caliber talent, players like Tebow, Murray and McCarron don’t measure up to quarterbacks whose overwhelming abilities made them the first picks in their respective drafts.

Ostendorf: I love the story about Wilson. And I agree that he probably should have been on the “just missed the cut” list. He led the SEC in passing yards per game in both 2011 and 2012, finishing ahead of guys like McCarron and Murray.

OXFORD - Former Ole Miss quarterback Archie Manning will receive the National Football Foundation’s gold medal to honor his leadership and reputation, the NFF announced Tuesday.

“Archie Manning became an icon as one of the greatest players to ever set foot on the gridiron, and he subsequently used his standing to become one of the game’s greatest ambassadors,” NFF president and CEO Steve Hatchell and in a statement.

“The entire football community has been blessed by his enormous contributions, and we take great pride in having him as our chairman. He has earned this honor many times over, and we are extremely proud to add his name to the esteemed list of past NFF gold medal recipients.”

He capped his junior season with a Sugar Bowl victory in which the Rebels upset Arkansas 27-22 in 1970.

No date was set on Thursday for Los Angeles Rams running back Tre Mason's trial on the charges stemming from a traffic stop and his subsequent arrest in March.

California-Irvine. The Los Angeles Daily News and the Orange County Register reported this week that Mason's status for training camp still was "to be determined," according to an unnamed team official.

The former Auburn standout was arrested on March 5 after a traffic stop in Hollywood, Fla. According to the police report, Mason would not identify himself after being pulled over for going 75 mph in a 35-mph zone, and he would not get out his car when asked to do so. A Taser was used to remove Mason from his car, and he was tased again before being taken to a hospital.

Mason was charged with four misdemeanors -- resisting an officer/obstruction without violence, reckless driving, failure to register a motor vehicle and possession of marijuana in an amount less than 20 grams. Mason also was cited for failure to yield the right of way to an emergency vehicle.

Mason did not participate in Los Angeles' offseason program. Rams coach Jeff Fisher said the running back had been excused from attending for "personal reasons."

Kentucky legend Craig Yeast’s son Russ Yeast decommitted from Kentucky.

The comments hurled at Russ Yeast after his decommitment struck an especially raw nerve for his former Wildcat father. It was frustrating to see fans turn on him and attack his kid that way.

“Look, I love Kentucky, always have, always will,” Craig Yeast told Mark Story of the Lexington Herald-Leader. “I’m for Kentucky in everything. Football. Basketball. Baseball. Softball. Soccer. If the Cats are on TV, I’m watching. But Russ Yeast is not Craig Yeast. And he decided Kentucky was not the best place for him.

“I do wish — in my heart — he would’ve gone to Kentucky. Because I love Kentucky,” Craig Yeast continued. “But that’s not the decision he made, and it’s his choice. My wife and I, we both just want Russ to go where he will feel comfortable — and he decided that wasn’t Kentucky.”

That might have been the response Yeast wished Kentucky fans had.

There were fans accusing Yeast the elder for steering his son away from Kentucky after he was allegedly passed over to be the wide receivers coach for Joker Phillips and then again under Mark Stoops.

Yeast denied those rumors.

Jalen Hurd is ready to make his bid to become the greatest running back in Tennessee history with Travis Henry’s 3,078 career rushing yards in his sights. (https://www.seccountry.com/tennessee/tennessees-jalen-hurd-galloping-toward-schools-all-time-rushing-mark)

Quote
“Now that it’s reachable, and you can see it, I definitely want to do that,” said Hurd, who has 2,187 career rushing yards, averaging 4.6 yards per carry to the 5.5 that the 5-9, 230-pound Henry powered his way to during UT’s glory years.

“That (rushing record) is a goal of mine. The biggest goal for me is to help get my team a national championship.”

Indeed, Henry led the Vols to a national championship in 1998, carrying the team on his back after future NFL 2,000-yard rusher Jamal Lewis was lost for the season to a knee injury in the fourth game of the season at Auburn.

Greene was a walk-on at Auburn, a fifth-round pick in the NFL Draft and a reserve defensive end and special-teamer for the Los Angeles Rams in his first three pro seasons. So how'd he get to the Hall of Fame?

"I figured out how to pass rush," Greene said. "I figured out how to put a guy -- an offensive tackle 3 to 4 inches taller, 80, 100 pounds heavier -- put him in a position of failure, and I did that."

Greene compiled 160 sacks – the most for any player whose primary position was linebacker and the third-most in NFL history.

"I loved getting a sack," Greene told the Pro Football Hall of Fame. "First, it was a feeling of relief. I know that is what that organization really wanted me to do. They wanted me to rush the passer, defend against the run because you can't be soft against the run, but what they really wanted me to do was crush quarterbacks.

"When I was really able to do that, it was a feeling of relief. My teammates depended on me to do that. I contributed. I didn't want to let my teammates down. ... It was just me making a contribution and not letting my brothers down."

Greene recorded 97.5 of his sacks after turning 30 years old, and he became the oldest player to lead the NFL in sacks when he did so at 34 in 1996.

Stabler played his final NFL game in 1984. He was a finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame three other times before making the cut. And yet for his family and fans, the long-awaited enshrinement is bittersweet because Stabler isn't here to see it. He died on July 8, 2015, his life taken by colon cancer.

"It's very exciting, and I am also saddened that he won't be there," Hall of Fame wide receiver and frequent Stabler pass-target Fred Biletnikoff told the San Francisco Chronicle. "It would have been a real thrill for him. ... But we're going to party just like we would if the Snake was there."

Maybe a 32-year wait to get into the Hall of Fame is simply a cosmic mirroring of Stabler's football career. After all, he was at his best late in the game.

Unlike many of the other positions in football, greatness for a quarterback also usually involves an element of longevity. Oakland took Stabler out of Alabama in the second round of the 1968 NFL Draft. By the time he became the Raiders' regular quarterback in 1973, he'd started two NFL games.

But for the next five years, Stabler the quarterback and Stabler the personality were virtually unmatched in the NFL. Sure, there was the funny line about Stabler studying his playbook by the light of the jukebox, but however he was getting ready, it worked.

From 1973 through 1977, Stabler had a 50-11-1 regular-season record as a starting quarterback. He started five straight conference championship games, a feat that stood unmatched by any quarterback until the New England Patriots' Tom Brady did it last year.

Stabler received The Associated Press' NFL MVP Award in 1974 and the Bert Bell Award as the NFL's Player of the Year in 1976, a season capped by the Raiders' 32-14 victory over the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl XI.

LOS ANGELES -- Tamaurice Nigel Martin is upset, despite just making public his commitment to play quarterback for Tennessee. It's winter of 1996. While social media doesn't yet exist, Martin, his family and friends had been hearing the judgmental grousing from Alabama and Auburn fans about a celebrated Mobile product leaving the state to play college football.

The car bringing Martin home stops in the Thomas James Place housing projects -- known locally as Birdville because all the streets are named after birds -- and the young man not yet popularly known as "Tee" Martin concludes what seemed like a cathartic rant.

"These people don't know me, don't know who I am," Martin said. "They don't care about me. I'm going to Tennessee because this is my decision, not theirs."

He then casted a sideways grin because he knew the driver didn't spend much time in one of the toughest sections of Mobile: "You know how to get out of here?"

This is a paraphrase of a two-decades old conversation, but Tee Martin, now USC first-year offensive coordinator, says he remembers it. It's illustrative of a developing young person who was known as humble and polite but was also thoughtful, tough-minded and opinionated beneath the surface. Sort of like the 38-year-old man he has become.

"Tee's whole life has been about decisions," said Duke coach David Cutcliffe, who was Tennessee offensive coordinator from 1993 to '98. "His life growing up was not easy. It was about deciding whether to be on the good side of the street or the bad side."

Quote
Belichick has a pair of would-be “lost causes” in offensive lineman Jonathan Cooper and linebacker Barkevious Mingo this season.

Mingo was swiped from the Browns on Aug. 25. A 6-foot-4, 241-pound LSU product, Mingo’s career with Cleveland was, like that of so many others, riddled by inconsistency and failed expectations. Those struggles came in part due to the fact the Browns had had three head coaches since the 25-year-old Mingo turned pro.

Mingo was once considered a centerpiece of the Browns defense. However, he hasn’t started since 2014 and recorded just two sacks in his last 31 games. The Browns used him to rush the passer, drop into coverage and gave him a try at inside linebacker.

In his Patriots preseason debut against the Giants’ non-starters last week, Mingo leapt into a time capsule and returned to his days at LSU.  In Baton Rouge, he played in all 13 games with 10 starts for Les Miles as a junior, logging 38 tackles, 12 quarterback hurries, 8.5 tackles for a loss and 4.5 quarterback sacks to earn second-team All-SEC honors.

Seattle Seahawks guard Germain Ifedi sustained an ankle injury in practice on Wednesday and had to leave the session (https://www.all22.com/seattle-seahawks/seahawks-confirm-germain-ifedi-left-practice-with-ankle-injury)

Ifedi, 22, was taken with the No. 31 overall pick in this year’s draft and was slated to start at the right guard spot for much of the offseason.

The severity of Ifedi’s ankle injury is unknown at this time as the Seahawks have provided no further details. [May have to go to the 12th man.]

Protecting quarterback Russell Wilson and fielding a dominant running game with Thomas Rawls and Christine Michael is the top order of the season for Seattle.

Texas A&M's tough Myles Garrett leads from the end, and why he uses his platform for good: http://www.houstonchronicle.com/sports/aggies/article/Texas-A-M-defensive-end-Myles-Garrett-leads-by-9982390.php … via @HoustonChron

(https://o.twimg.com/2/proxy.jpg?t=HBg8aHR0cDovL3d3MS5oZG51eC5jb20vcGhvdG9zLzUzLzY0LzI0LzExNDg2NTA4LzMvcmF3SW1hZ2UuanBnFIAgFN4QHBSEBhSUAwAAFgASAA&s=6eYivA2RoMmNEKa7kQIPwhigT6MvRmhTDZLMXAQGas0)

Quote
"As great a talent as he is, and with everything he has at stake professionally down the road, it shows what kind of teammate he is, and where this team is right now, with the guys who are high-profile players doing everything possible to win games and be great teammates," Sumlin said of Garrett, who is projected by some to be the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

He suffered the leg injury in the Aggies' 45-24 victory over Arkansas on Sept. 24 but insisted on returning in that game.

He then sat out A&M's 24-13 victory at South Carolina before returning in what was supposed to be a limited role against then-No. 9 Tennessee. So what about Saturday's marquee matchup between the Aggies (6-0, 4-0 Southeastern Conference) and the Crimson Tide (7-0, 4-0)?

"I can play on first, second, third and fourth downs," Garrett said, smiling.

Garrett teams up with senior Daeshon Hall to form what widely is considered to be the top defensive-end tandem in the nation. The duo has combined for 71/2 [sic] sacks, 16 quarterback hurries and 15 tackles for loss in six games.

As one era of LSU football may be coming to an end, a new one has already begun: the Derrius Guice era.

Guice ran roughshod over the Aggies, accumulating a school-record 285 yards on 37 carries with four touchdowns. Guice bested the LSU single-game rushing record of 284 yards set by Fournette against Ole Miss on Oct 22. Fournette needed just 16 carries to set that record.

"This is a game of inches," Guice said. "If you don't wrap up and secure your tackle, I'm going to get an extra inch."

Tebow declined a lucrative endorsement deal at the behest of New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, and then was released by the team just a few weeks later.

Tebow said that he had a $1 million endorsement deal, but he went to ask Belichick if he should take it. Belichick acted like he was thankful Tebow came to him when he likely wouldn’t have asked other coaches, and Belichick said that he would “really appreciate” Tebow not taking the endorsement.

“Well, I didn’t want to be a distraction on the team,” Tebow said. “I wanted to be just another guy in the locker room. Someone that could work, someone that could be a backup to Tom, and I didn’t want to be a distraction having stuff all over the headlines. That’s why I called coach Belichick to say ‘what do you think about this, this is a great opportunity to say yes to, but I want to do what’s right for the team first.’

Belichick asked him to not do it, and Tebow said that he doesn’t look back and regret it. Then again, it’s hard to imagine he didn’t have any regrets at that point. That’s a lot of money to leave on the table, even to a player who was faced with the prospect of far more in the NFL.

Just a One Man Band: Picking the All-Saban All-American team (https://www.seccountry.com/alabama/rammer-jammer-picking-saban-american-team)

Quarterback: AJ

Running back: Derrick Henry — [Thought to be moved to the defensive side of the ball, emerged over the top high school running back in four other states (apparently where the internet had not yet been deployed) in Bama's recruiting class to win the Heisman]

Running back: Mark Ingram — [Two back set]

Wide receiver: Amari Cooper

Tight end: OJ None! Alabama hasn’t had a first-team all-American tight end. Ever.

Center: Ryan Kelly — [Lakota West (or East) 3-star]

Guard: Chance Warmack

Guard: Arie Kouandjio — Cyrus' bro

Tackle: Barrett Jones — [Got in AJ's face that time]

Tackle: Andre Smith

DL: Mt. Cody, hero of “Rocky Block.”

DL: A’Shawn Robinson

DL: Jonathan Allen

Linebacker: Reuben Foster

Linebacker: Rolando McClain — [solid citizen, product of the process]

Linebacker: Dont’a Hightower  — Hightower would have been a four-year starter, if not for his knee injury in 2009. [I would have been if not for speed, height, strength, academic, and citizenship concerns, and a nagging criminal record.]

Linebacker: C.J Mosley

Safety: Landon Collins

Safety: Mark Barron

Cornerback: Dee Milliner

Cornerback: Dre Kirkpatrick

*No place kick return First Team All-Americans during Saban's Bama tenure

Most of the time when Stafford’s exploits are discussed, the fourth-quarter comebacks are front and center.

For good reason.

Noticeably absent? A representative from the SEC. It’s the first time since 2005 that the SEC hasn’t had a player in New York City among the finalists, and during that 10-year stretch, the conference has had five players win the award. It’s no coincidence that the league won eight of the 10 national championships in that same span.

So where did all the SEC’s stars go in 2016?

Sure, there was some late buzz for Alabama freshman quarterback Jalen Hurts to at least earn an invitation to the ceremony. And some would argue that if any defensive player should have gone, it should have been Alabama defensive lineman Jonathan Allen.

LSU running back Leonard Fournette was the odds-on favorite to win the award. Most believed Fournette deserved to be a finalist the year before, and he was all but guaranteed a trip to New York City this year, right?

Wrong.

Nick Chubb burst back onto the scene with 32 carries for 222 yards and two touchdowns in Georgia’s win over North Carolina in the season opener, but like Fournette, he battled injuries most of the year.

Chubb, who was one of the SEC’s best backs before tearing his ACL last year, only reached the 100-yard mark in four games.

Chad Kelly said he was the best quarterback in the nation. Ole Miss senior led the league in passing the year before, and with the Rebels flying under the radar as a darkhorse contender in the West, there were some who believed that Kelly could make a run at the Heisman.

Those dreams came to an end.

Myles Garrett was considered a possible candidate.

Garrett, like the others, missed some time due to injury and played the majority of the season at less than 100 percent.

To win the Heisman Trophy, it’s necessary to stay healthy.

Lamar Jackson and his Louisville team were a serious contender for the playoff before losing its final two games.

The stars of the SEC couldn’t stay healthy. And outside of Alabama, who were the league’s contenders? Every other team finished with at least four losses.

Super Bowl III, quarterback Joe Namath led the New York Jets to a 16-7 victory over the Baltimore Colts after famously guaranteeing an improbable win.

Jets were 18-point underdogs as the AFL champions. The Green Bay Packers of the NFL had dispatched the AFL champ with 25- and 19-point victories in the first two Super Bowls.

Namath joined New York out of Alabama in 1965 and became the face of the AFL. He was the league's Player of the Year in 1968 and 1969. In between, he was the Most Valuable Player of Super Bowl III on Jan. 12, 1969.

"Winning the championship, especially in team sports, it takes more than one guy," Namath said. "Being a part of a group that worked so hard for so long, going through the valleys, the tough times, staying together and then reaching that peak together -- we did it, and that's one of the things that I cherish."

Eighty-eight players and 27 coaches from the SEC have been inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame, and the ballot for the Class of 2017 included 10 players and two coaches from the conference.

The SEC players among the 75 NCAA FBS nominees on the Class of 2017 ballot were:

Lomas Brown, Florida, offensive tackle, 1981-84: Brown won the Jacobs Blocking Trophy as the SEC's best blocker and was a consensus All-American in 1984

Tim Couch, Kentucky, quarterback, 1996-98: As a senior, Couch set SEC records for pass completions with 400, passing yards with 4,275, completion percentage at .723 and yards of total offense at 4,151. He became the first SEC player with more than 4,000 yards of total offense in a season, but that's the only one of those stats that doesn't still stand as the best in league history. Couch finished fourth in the 1998 Heisman Trophy balloting and was the first player selected in the 1999 NFL Draft.

Brad Culpepper [joined his wife Monica on "Survivor"], Florida, defensive tackle, 1988-91: A consensus All-American in 1991, Culpepper was a team captain for Florida's SEC championship team that season.

Bobby Humphrey, Alabama, running back, 1985-88: Humphrey left as Alabama's record-holder for rushing yards in a game, season and career.

E.J. Junior, Alabama, defensive end, 1977-1980: A three-time All-SEC selection, Junior was a unanimous All-American in 1980

Peyton Manning, Tennessee, quarterback, 1994-97: Manning was the SEC Player of the Year in 1997, when he led the Volunteers to the conference championship. He also won the Maxwell Award and the Davey O'Brien National Quarterback Award, earned the Campbell Trophy as college football's top scholar-athlete and finished as the runner-up for the Heisman Trophy that season. He remains Tennessee's all-time leader in quarterback victories, passing yards and touchdown passes...

Buddy McClinton, Auburn, defensive back, 1967-69: The Montgomery native was a consensus All-American safety in 1969, when he intercepted a school-record nine passes...

Larry Seivers, Tennessee, wide receiver, 1974-76: Seivers is one of the few SEC players who has been a consensus All-American more than once.

Matt Stinchcomb [SEC Network], Georgia, offensive tackle, 1995-98: Stinchcomb was a consensus All-American and winner of the Jacobs Blocking Trophy...

Jackie Walker, Tennessee, linebacker, 1969-71: Walker was the first black player to captain an SEC football team and the first black SEC player selected as a first-team All-American, which he was in 1970 and 1971. In his career, Walker returned his 11 career interceptions for 281 yards and an SEC-record five TDs.

Danny Ford of Arkansas joined Spurrier as the SEC coaches on the ballot.

SEC members Arkansas and Texas A&M also have players on the ballot, but those players - defensive tackle Dan Hampton for the Razorbacks and linebacker Dat Nguyen of the Aggies - pre-date those schools' membership in the SEC. Former South Carolina coach Jim Carlen, another pre-SEC nominee, also is on the ballot.

To be eligible for the Hall of Fame, a player must have been named a first-team All-American by a selector used  by the NCAA in determining the consensus All-American team, be at least 10 years but not more than 50 years removed from his final college season, and no longer be an active pro player...

7. Derrius Guice, RB, LSU

As Heisman candidate Leonard Fournette battled injuries all season, Guice took advantage of his opportunities and flourished, finishing with an 83.3 rushing grade that ranked seventh among running backs. He was a big-play threat waiting to happen as 58.6 percent of his yards came on breakaway (15-plus yard) runs

9. Jalen Hurts, QB, Alabama

It was an impressive sight to see a true freshman at the helm of an Alabama team coached by Nick Saban

Davis’ career was cut short by knee injuries, playing only seven seasons for the Denver Broncos, but he made them count. The two-time Offensive Player of the Year famously ran for 2,008 yards during a 1998 MVP campaign, en route to his second Super Bowl championship. Davis was a member of the 1990s NFL All-Decade Team despite only having four full years, during which he amassed most of his 7,607 yards rushing and 60 touchdowns.

SEC Network analyst and former NFL player joined The Paul Finebaum Show to speak about his experiences:

McFarland was with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers when they won Super Bowl XXXVII, and he was part of the Indianapolis Colts when they won Super Bowl XLI.

“It’s one of the … biggest moments you’ll ever be in,” McFarland told Finebaum. “There’s such a rush of adrenaline before the game. There’s such a rush of adrenaline after the game, especially when you win. It’s one of those moments, Paul, you really don’t appreciate until two or three days later, sometimes a couple weeks (later), because everything happens so fast. For me, we won in Miami with Indy on a Sunday night. Paul, I didn’t lay my head down to take a full night’s rest until Tuesday.”

McFarland went on to tell an interesting story about how he came back to Tampa after being traded to the Colts, and he ran into then-Buccaneers coach Jon Gruden. McFarland said he enjoyed the satisfaction of seeing his former coach after earning a Super Bowl title with Indianapolis.

Now they work for the same company again.

He had Tebow at No. 2 and Shane Matthews at No. 3.

“Danny Wuerffel is the best of all time,” Spurrier said. “What Danny did was the best. Tim and Shane, Tim is probably No. 2 and Shane Matthews is definitely the third best or he’s in the top-3. I’ll put those in the top 3 is probably the best way to say it.”

Willis was part of the mass exodus of talent in San Francisco over the last few years. The former All-Pro linebacker retired unexpectedly at 30 years old while he was still one of the premier defenders in the game.

With sudden retirements, there are always eventual rumblings of a possible return. Yet, Willis insists that he’s good with retired life.

“That inclination (to play) only comes for a split second,” Willis said, per Daniel Brown of The Mercury News. “And then it’s, ‘Nope, nope, I’m cool.”’

Willis gets his competitive juices flowing with a new hobby that he’s picked up. The seven-time Pro Bowler works out with mixed martial artists from time to time.

Former Vanderbilt standout running back Zac Stacy wasn’t able to find his way back onto a field in 2016 after suffering a gruesome ankle injury in 2015 that ended his season.

Stacy was among the greatest running backs in Commodores history. He held the career rushing record with 3,141 yards and single season rushing record with 1,193 yards in 2011 before Ralph Webb broke both in 2016. Stacy still holds the Vanderbilt career touchdowns record with 30 and the single-season touchdown record with 14 in 2011.

Despite a lack of talent outside of Jeffery, Chicago believes $17 million is too big of a price tag.

Jeffery’s last two seasons have been ones to forget. The receiver’s missed 11 games due to injuries and PED suspension. He’s barely clipped 800 receiving yards the past two years.

The 27-year-old is talented enough to receive plenty of attention on the open market. If Jeffery stays on the field and is consistent he’s still a viable No. 1 wideout.

Greg Hardy is having a hard time finding his way back onto a football field. After domestic violence accusations and a recent drug arrest, the NFL and CFL want no part of the former star and now he’s looking for work anywhere he can get it.

Most recently, Hardy has appealed to the Salt Lake Screaming Eagles, an Indoor Football League team. And, while he’s more than talented enough, his past caused the Screaming Eagles to put his potential signing to a fan vote. On Thursday, the Screaming Eagles revealed he’d lost the vote.

On the team’s official website, a statement providing information on Hardy’s prior transgressions was made available to fans before the vote. Polling closed at 10 p.m. PT on Wednesday night and the tally showed the voting deadlocked at 50-50.

The site didn’t provide more intricate details on the voting numbers until revealing the results the following day. According to the team website, the no vote carried a 50.1 percent majority and now Hardy won’t be receiving a contract offer.

A knee surgery last year disrupted the nerve that controls Floyd’s quadriceps, according to USA Today’s Tom Pelissero. Almost six months after the surgery, the nerve still won’t fire. If the nerve doesn’t begin to work, it could put mean the end of his career.

Floyd played one game last season for the Minnesota Vikings. He had knee surgery in September, but Minnesota waited until December to place him on injured reserve.

The Vikings selected Floyd with the No. 23 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

ake out the games in which AJ McCarron was Saban's starting quarterback, and the coach's career winning percentage dips to .752.

While at Alabama, McCarron compiled a 36-4 record as the Crimson Tide's quarterback. Alabama won the 2011 and 2012 BCS national championships with McCarron as its signal-caller. Along the way, he became the Tide's career leader in passing yards, touchdown passes and total offense.

That success is one of the reasons that the Alabama coach has a hard time understanding why McCarron isn't a starting quarterback in the NFL.

When the Cincinnati Bengals start their offseason program on April 17, McCarron will be looking at his third year as the backup to Andy Dalton.

Saban appeared on SiriusXM NFL Radio on Tuesday and was asked about McCarron's pro career.

"I loved AJ," Saban said. "I always thought he did a great job. He's a football junkie. He really prepares for the game, understands the game well. He's got a confidence about him that some people might mistake for a little bit of cockiness, but when you get to know him, you know that's not the case. I think, and I always thought, that I could not believe he did not get drafted higher than he got drafted relative to the success that he had here in terms of winning. If you just look at how much we won when he was the quarterback, how many championships we won and did it at an early age. And every time he's had an opportunity to play with the Bengals, he's, to me, proven that he's absolutely a starter.

"So I think he's one of the guys that probably is a coveted backup player that most people in the league should think, 'This guy could be a starter for us,' and Cincinnati's probably in a good position because they have him under contract without a big salary-cap hit. But that's going to change soon, and that may be a great benefit for him."

"Me and Lane were just talking," T Martin said Thursday. "We were on the phone going back and forth, text messaging. I was eating breakfast with me wife. He was asking me how the kids were doing and all that kind of stuff. I sent some videos and he sad, "Dude, I'm about to offer Kaden a scholarship.' I was like, ' Stop playing.' Long story short, he did. It kind of took off from there."

Kaden Martin is 5-foot-11, 175-pounds and is at Adams Middle School in Redondo Beach.

T Martin, who led Tennessee to a national championship at quarterback in 1998, said it is Kaden's first and only offer.

"Coach Kiffin has been knowing Kaden for a while because of our relationship," said T Martin, who worked with Kiffin at USC. "He has always said it about Kaden and now he is in a situation where he can make that decision.

"He's seen him play. He's been around him. Our families are very close. ... He's seen him more than other people. In his mind, one day, he's going to be a good player, so he wants to be the first to offer him."   

But is Kaden better than dad, who spent four years in the NFL?

"Kaden is way more advanced than I was at his age," T Martin explained. "I was a multi-sport athlete. ... I was good, but he is way past me. He is bigger than I was. He's already 5-11, 175 pounds and just turned 13. He's a little more advanced than I was. He is bigger, stronger, faster and all of that, but you can't predict success."

T Martin said he and the family are having fun with it and are keeping the scholarship offer in perspective.

"We're trying to laugh about it as a family," he said. "He came home and had homework. I sat him at the table, and he had to do homework."

When does that USC offer come?

"He was born with an offer," T Martin joked.

On Thursday night, Tim Tebow’s Columbia Fireflies were in Lexington, Ky., as part of the former Florida quarterback’s experiment in minor league baseball with a Class A affiliate of the New York Mets.

But Tebow wasn’t the only former famous SEC signal-caller in attendance. Ex-Kentucky quarterback Tim Couch, who was the first pick in the 1999 NFL Draft, was on hand to throw the first pitch and snag a pose with Tebow.

To be eligible for Hall consideration, a player must be 10 full seasons removed from his final college game, and he must be retired from professional football.

Players also must have played college football in the past 50 seasons (although the Review Committee can consider players whose time has expired).

The Hall of Fame requirements also say that a player’s “post-football record as a citizen is also weighed.”

And to be considered for the Hall of Fame, a player has to have earned first-team All-American recognition from one of the organizations that is used by the NCAA to select the consensus All-American team.

Given those hurdles, some of the stars from the SEC’s past will be forever denied admission to the College Football Hall of Fame (unless the eligibility requirements change). Here are 20 who would appear to be good candidates for enshrinement but will not make it:

 Ronnie Brown, running back, Auburn
It seems as though Brown will be forever linked to Carnell “Cadillac” Williams

 Jason Campbell, quarterback, Auburn
SEC Player of the Year in 2004, when he helped Auburn achieve an undefeated season

Terrence Cody, defensive tackle, Alabama
served six months in jail after being found guilty of animal neglect in 2016

Jay Cutler, quarterback, Vanderbilt
Because he retired from the NFL earlier this year, Cutler would be eligible for the Class of 2018 ballot, but he doesn’t qualify, even though he was the SEC Player of the Year for the 2005 season.

Dermontti Dawson, center/guard, Kentucky
For the Wildcats, Dawson was a second-team All-SEC selection in 1987. For the Pittsburgh Steelers, Dawson was a six-time All-Pro center who’s in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

A.J. Green, wide receiver, Georgia
Reported to have missed the Arkansas game

Kevin Greene, defensive end, Auburn
Kevin Greene is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame and has the third-most sacks in the history of the NFL. However, he wasn’t as highly lauded at Auburn

Dalton Hilliard, LSU, running back
Hilliard was the fourth player in SEC history to compile 4,000 rushing yards, and he earned first-team All-SEC recognition in three seasons (keeping Bo Jackson on second team in one of those campaigns).


Joe Namath, quarterback, Alabama

Kevin Faulk ran from Carencro High School, into the LSU record book and on to three Super Bowl rings with the New England Patriots.

Now Faulk has a chance to run all the way to the College Football Hall of Fame.

The former LSU All-American is one of 129 players and coaches on the ballot for the 2018 Hall of Fame class. Inductees will be named Jan. 8 in Atlanta prior to the College Football Playoff National Championship game and formally enshrined Dec. 4, 2018 at the National Football Foundation annual awards dinner in New York.

1996 All-American, Faulk remains LSU’s all-time leading rusher with 4,557 yards and finished his college career fourth nationally in career all-purpose yards (6,833). A three-time All-Southeastern Conference selection, Faulk set 11 school records and became the first LSU back to average over 100 yards per game for his career (111.2).

Other prominent names on the ballot include but are not limited to Ole Miss linebacker Patrick Willis.

Of the 5.2 million players who have competed in college football since 1869, only 987 (plus 214 coaches) have made the Hall of Fame through 2017.

Defensive ends
Kevin Greene (1983-1984)
Before he became a Hall of Fame linebacker, Kevin Greene was a walk-on defensive end at Auburn. Greene made the most of his opportunity to play for Pat Dye, as he had 11 sacks as a senior in 1984. He was Auburn’s defensive player of the year that season and later became an NFL legend.

Defensive tackles
Nick Fairley (2009-2010)
Auburn’s 2010 offense had Cam Newton. Its defense had Nick Fairley. The JUCO product had a strong 2009 campaign before becoming one of the nation’s best defenders in 2010. Fairley won the Lombardi Award, which is given to the best lineman or linebacker in the country, and was the SEC Defensive Player of the Year. His mark of 11.5 sacks in 2010 is a program record.

Tracy Rocker (1985-1988)

The gold standard of defensive linemen at Auburn, Tracy Rocker became the first player in SEC history to win both the Lombardi and the Outland in the same season. Rocker was a two-time All-American, a three-time All-SEC selection and a highly productive interior pass rusher. His 21 sacks rank fourth all-time in Auburn history —

Top 10 is dominated by edge rushers.

Melvin Ingram, who was a first-round draft pick by the now-Los Angeles Chargers, signed a four-year $66 million deal, with $42 million in guaranteed money.

Ingram had the franchise tag placed on him earlier this offseason.

Ingram was the No. 18 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft after he made 11 sacks in his final season with the Gamecocks.

According to the most current odds from Bovada, Dak Prescott has the best odds of an SEC player, trailing just New England QB Tom Brady, Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers and Oakland QB Derek Carr at 12-to-1 odds.

Newton is next in line for the SEC alums, checking in at 25-to-1 after struggling mightily in 2016.

Former Alabama WR Julio Jones, who catches passes from last season’s MVP in Atlanta, is 50-to-1 to win the award. Former Ole Miss QB Eli Manning is also 50-to-1 as the two-time Super Bowl champion enters his 14th season with the New York Giants.  Former Georgia QB Matthew Stafford also checks in at 50-to-1 as the trigger man for a pass-happy offense in Detroit.

Odell Beckham Jr., a former LSU star who catches passing from Manning in New York, is 66-to-1 after an offseason news cycle focused primarily on his absence from OTAs.

Former A&M players Ryan Tannehill (66-to-1) and Von Miller (100-to-1) did not play in the SEC, but did make the list...

NFL Network released the final 10 players on the Top 100 Players of 2017 countdown but the NFL did not release the order. Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones was among them.

The nine other players in the top 10 include but are not limited to New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., ... New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, Denver Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller and more.

Ten other players with Alabama football roots have preceded Jones in the top 100 -- Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler, Green Bay Packers free safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Giants strong safety Landon Collins, Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper, Patriots linebacker Dont'a Hightower, Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill, Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins, Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston.

After 2015 NFL MVP Cam Newton, the legitimate NFL stars who played at Auburn are few and far between. There are a lot of former Tigers who are on NFL rosters -- including veteran linebacker Karlos Dansby --

But who's next?

Here are five candidates for each school:

Alabama

Ryan Kelly, Lakota West C, Indianapolis Colts -- Kelly was a first-round pick last season, and made that investment pay off by starting all 16 games.

A'Shawn Robinson, DT, Detroit Lions -- Robinson had a solid rookie year

Derrick Henry, RB, Tennessee Titans -- Henry had to split carries with DeMarco Murray

Reggie Ragland, LB, Buffalo Bills -- Ragland's rookie year was wrecked by a torn ACL

 O.J.


Auburn

1. Dee Ford, DE/OLB, Kansas City Chiefs --

C.J. Uzomah, TE, Cincinnati Bengals -- Uzomah set a career high with 25 receptions

Shon Coleman, OT, Cleveland Browns -- Coleman spent the 2016 season as the back-up to Austin Pasztor

Peyton Barber, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers -- Barber went from undrafted free agent to contributor in 2017, averaging 4.1 yards per carry in a back-up role.

Jay Prosch, FB, Houston Texans -- You won't know it by his stats, but Prosch is one of the league's best at his position.

Collins and Clinton-Dix played for the NFC in the Pro Bowl last season after they tied for the NFL lead among safeties with five interceptions apiece.

Collins finished third in the voting for the 2016 NFL Defensive Player of the Year Award. In his second season, he earned first-team All-Pro recognition after recording 125 tackles, 100 solo tackles, four sacks, five interceptions (including one returned for a touchdown) and 13 passes defended for the Giants. He became the first player in NFL history with at least 100 solo tackles, two sacks, five interceptions and 12 passes defended in the same season.

Clinton-Dix earned his first Pro Bowl invitation and was second-team All-Pro in his third season with the Packers in 2016. He was one of four players in the NFL who was on the field for every one of his team's defensive snaps.

Here is a look at the top SEC players by position from 1992 to present.

This evaluation is based on achievements during the college career solely

Center - Jonathan Luigs, Arkansas

AL.com is presenting the No. 1 player to wear each number 1 through 99 in the conference's history.

No. 1 63 is Arkansas center Jonathan Luigs.

Quote
While Jonathan Luigs played center for Arkansas, the Razorbacks became the second SEC team to have a 1,000-yard rusher for four consecutive seasons - and in two of those seasons, the Hogs had two 1,000-yard rushers

In 2006, Arkansas' 286.5 rushing yards per game were the highest for an SEC team in 21 years. The Ground Hogs helped the Razorbacks win the SEC West title outright for the only time. That season also was Luigs' first as the All-SEC center.

The next year, he repeated that honor and also received the Jacobs Blocking Trophy, which is presented annually to the SEC's best blocker, and the Rimington Trophy, which is presented annually to the nation's best center, while being named a consensus All-American.

7 Players have been the SEC's rushing leader in consecutive seasons (http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2017/08/sec_football_by_the_numbers_to_59.html)

Quote
The players who have been the SEC's rushing leader in consecutive seasons are Ole Miss' John Dottley in 1949 and 1950, Alabama's Johnny Musso in 1970 and 1971, Kentucky's Sonny Collins in 1973 and 1974, Georgia's Herschel Walker in 1980, 1981 and 1982, Tennessee's Johnnie Jones in 1983 and 1984, LSU's Kevin Faulk in 1997 and 1998 and Arkansas' Darren McFadden in 2006 and 2007. Although LSU's Derrius Guice, Mississippi State's Nick Fitzgerald, Arkansas' Rawleigh Williams III and Vanderbilt's Ralph Webb finished with more rushing yards last season than Pettway, the Auburn ball-carrier was the SEC's rushing leader because he had the league's highest per-game average at 122.4.

ARKANSAS - Dan Hampton, Defensive Tackle, 1975-78
Arkansas defensive tackle Dan Hampton was a four-year letterman from 1975-78 and a three-year starter as well as a two-time All-Conference selection. Arkansas produced a 35-10-2 record during Hampton's career, including a mark of 22-8-1 in Southwest Conference play. He totaled 239 tackles in his career, with 32 behind the line of scrimmage, while recovering six fumbles. Hampton was a first-team All-American in 1978, and he helped Arkansas to a No. 3 national finish after winning the 1978 Orange Bowl. During his senior campaign in 1978, he was named the SWC Defensive Player of the Year and earned first-team All-SWC honors. Hampton also earned the SWC Player of the Year award from the Houston Post for his senior season. A first-round draft pick of the Chicago Bears, he played in the NFL for 12 seasons and became one of only two Bears' players to play in three decades for the team. Hampton finished third on the team's all-time career sacks list with 82 and earned All-Pro honors five times.

Kentucky football: Benny Snell breaks school record for most rushing touchdowns (https://www.seccountry.com/kentucky/kentucky-football-benny-snell-breaks-school-record-for-most-rushing-touchdowns)

Quote
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Benny Snell has not yet completed his sophomore season, but the Kentucky running back set the program’s all-time record for rushing touchdowns on Saturday against Vanderbilt.

Snell entered the game with 25 career rushing touchdowns. Former Kentucky running backs Sonny Collins and Moe Williams shared the school record for rushing touchdowns with 26. Snell’s second rushing touchdown against Vanderbilt, coming at the 13- minute mark in the thrid quarter, gave him the record with 27 career rushing touchdowns. He had 13 last year and 14 so far this season.

Making history is nothing new for Snell. He broke six records in his freshman season at Kentucky.

Snell also became the first player in Kentucky history to rush for 1,000 yards in back-to-back seasons. He has 110 rushing yards so far against Vanderbilt.

Gus Malzahn: Kerryon Johnson 'needs to be in the Heisman talk'
(https://pbs.twimg.com/card_img/929707113227489280/sB2G2zEy?format=jpg&name=600x314) (https://twitter.com/aldotcomSports/status/929708511147282432)

Quote
After running for more yards against a top 10 rush defense than any other player this season, Kerryon Johnson has plowed his way into the Heisman Trophy conversation.

The Auburn running back had 167 yards on 32 carries and two catches for 66 yards with a 55-yard touchdown to lead the No. 10 Tigers in a 40-17 win over No. 1 Georgia on Saturday.

"I've been saying it for a couple of weeks, he's one of the best running backs in the country, if not the best, and he proved it tonight," Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said. "He needs to be in the Heisman talk. (I'm) very proud of him, not just rushing but he had a big reception, too, and he does a lot of different things in protection."

Johnson, the SEC's leading rusher, hit the 1,000-yard mark for the season during the fourth quarter while his 32 carries equaled Georgia's team total.

Junior from Huntsville liked the praise from his head coach, but didn't take to campaigning on his own behalf for the top individual award in the sport.

"I appreciate it from him seeing as he's coached a few guys in that conversation and guys that have won it," Johnson said. "Until it's in there, it's not in there. I just keep going out, I run, I run and if it gets in there it's pretty cool. It's always been a dream of mine. I never thought I'd get to that level, but it would be pretty awesome to see."

Johnson narrowly edged the 166 rushing yards and three touchdowns by Stanford's Bryce Love against Washington for most yards against a top 10 rush defense in the FBS this season.

Hurts doesn't remember when it happened. It was at some point during the third quarter -- presumably when Alabama was losing to Mississippi State.

A member of ESPN's production crew was standing beside him.

Lost in the bad for UK today: Benny Snell will finish the regular season as the SEC leader in rushing yards (1,318) and rushing TD (18). And he's rewriting the school record book.

Snell already has the Kentucky record for most career rushing touchdowns, and he broke another record on Saturday against Louisville. Snell ran for his 18th touchdown of the season to break Moe Williams’ single season record of 17.

Snell has already rushed 28 times for 211 yards and two touchdowns...

By the way, Devin White is now No. 6 in #LSU history with 125 tackles this season. He wasn't in the Top 11 to start the game. Needs four more to crack Top 5.

He has 11 total tackles tonight.

Chubb is now the No. 2 all-time rusher in the SEC, as he passed Kevin Faulk and Darren McFadden on Saturday in the SEC Championship Game against Auburn.

Chubb trails only former Bulldog Herschel Walker in the all-time record book. Chubb now has 4,591 rushing yards. Walker had 5,259.

Chubb has had to carry a bigger load against Auburn with fellow senior running back Sony Michel out with a left leg injury...

SEC-connected Hall of Famers are Herschel Walker of Georgia, Frank Broyles and Pepper Rodgers of Georgia Tech, Raymond Brown and Archie Manning of Ole Miss, Johnny Majors of Tennessee and Claude "Little Monk" Simons of Tulane, Paul "Bear" Bryant and Gene Stallings and running back Major Ogilvie of Alabama and running back Bo Jackson of Auburn.

Hall of Fame choices from outside the SEC included and were limited to Chuck Dicus of Arkansas, Tony Dorsett and Dan Marino of Pitt and Sammy Baugh and Davey O'Brien of TCU.

While Bryant is most associated with Alabama, where he coached for 25 years, Bryant made his first Sugar Bowl appearance as the coach of Kentucky. His Wildcats stunned top-ranked and previously undefeated Oklahoma 13-7 on Jan. 1, 1951.

Bryant took eight Alabama teams to the Sugar Bowl...
