Heard makes most of transfer year at UK

One of the last memories Braylon Heard had of his time at Nebraska was a 9-yard touchdown run in the 2012 Big Ten championship game. He took the handoff, sprinted to the opposite side of the field and left the defense in the dust as he waltzed into the end zone. It was a play that likely won’t register with Cornhuskers fans as their team trailed Wisconsin 63-17 at the time, but it’s...

How'd we do? Tide prediction rewind

Not every prediction we made about Alabama heading into the spring panned out, but we got awfully close. Let’s take a look back: Prediction No. 1: Kiffin provides a jolt This one appears to be a work in progress as A-Day was not the most impressive performance for the offense. Outside of a failed flea-flicker attempt, there wasn’t any play or formation called by new offensive...

Mason is ready to cast his own shadow

ATHENS, Ga. – Georgia quarterback Hutson Mason sits in a faintly lit meeting room deep inside Butts-Mehre Heritage Hall, the Bulldogs' athletic facility/sports museum, reflecting on the past and focusing on the future. His eyes show purpose as he discusses the season ahead while mentally gearing up for a late spring practice a couple of hours away. While the present means more reps, and...

Right at home, Spurrier still going strong

COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Already a Hall of Fame lock when he returned to the college coaching ranks nearly a decade ago, Steve Spurrier has found his second wind at South Carolina. He’s also found a home. The Head Ball Coach will always be a Florida Gator, and he’ll proudly tell you as much in his familiar, high-pitched twang. But South Carolina has grown on him in more ways than one. So...

Nine players from SEC going in first round?

ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. predicts nine players from the SEC will go in the first round in his latest mock draft . That would be down from the 12 first-round picks the SEC produced a year ago, which tied the record for first-rounders set by the ACC in 2006. Kiper's No. 1 pick overall is South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney going to the Houston Texans. Six of the first 10 picks in the draft...

UF spring cleaning: Playing the slots

Editor’s note: With Florida’s spring practice now in the rearview mirror, we’ll clean out the notebook this week and touch on a few remaining topics. GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- The numbers from the spring game weren't eye-popping, but it's clear that Florida's new offense will make greater use of a deeper receiving corps. A scheme that utilizes a lot of three- and four-receiver sets...

Henry will be best RB option for Alabama

With all due respect to my esteemed colleague Alex Scarborough, Derrick Henry will eventually end up being the guy at running back for Alabama. And by “eventually,” I mean this fall. T.J. Yeldon has had a tremendous two-year career with Alabama. He has the stats to back it up, as Alex so thoroughly laid out in his column earlier today, and he was a high-prized recruit coming out of...

Thomas could shake up Auburn RB battle

AUBURN, Ala. -- Auburn’s spring came and went without a No. 1 running back establishing himself. Is it because Cameron Artis-Payne and Corey Grant performed so well that deciding between the two proved too difficult for the Auburn coaches? It’s a possibility. Artis-Payne paced the offense with 12 carries for 97 yards and a touchdown in the spring game, while Grant provided a spark...

Yeldon still Bama's top running back

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Four touchdowns versus 14. Three hundred and eighty-two yards versus 1,235. Thirty-five carries versus 207. Two 100-yard games versus six. If it weren’t Derrick Henry, we wouldn’t be making the comparison. His freshman season was promising with 382 rushing yards and four total touchdowns. But if he weren’t Derrick Henry and this wasn’t Alabama, how...
