"I'm trying to put out fires that aren't even justified and to clear the record, I guess, is the best way to put it," Andrews told CBSSports.com. "It came out he had a failed ACL surgery -- that's not even close to the truth. His performance at the combine had nothing to do with his knee si...

Does anyone find this odd? No matter what side of the fence your on about current proposals, how can power conferences not be represented in any potential rules changes?

| SEC Recruiting|| 2015 TE Will Gragg - Pine Bluff, Ark. - CapstoneGrad06 on 1/31/14 at 12:25 pm|
He is attending Alabama's upcoming junior day. Saban visited his high school recently as well. There's word that he may commit this weekend.
What are Hog fans hearing? He seems like an eventual Arkansas signee either way, with his brother playing there. ...

| Coaching Changes|| Doug Nussmeier to Michigan as OC? - CapstoneGrad06 on 1/8/14 at 5:19 pm|
Seems like a dumb move, but he isn't appreciated as he should be at Alabama.
Conceivable: An encouraged-to-look-around Doug Nussmeier could go to Michigan and open door for, yep, Lane Kiffin at Bama. Saban likes Lane.[/quote]
