Monday Morning Update

Spanning the globe on a Monday morning …

From the Tuscaloosa News, the visiting team’s perspective of Ole Miss’ sweep of Alabama.

After the first half of the SEC season the Western Division looks like this: LSU 13-2, Arkansas 9-6, MSU 8-7, Alabama 8-7, Ole Miss 7-8, Texas A&M 6-9, Auburn 5-10.

In spring football news, AP writer David Brandt summed up spring football at Ole Miss as the search for depth. …

After the final spring practice Saturday we spoke with senior quarterback Barry Brunetti. He clearly sounds like a guy expecting to do something different in the fall, and he hopes that conversation with Hugh Freeze comes soon. …

In other spring football news, Georgia offensive line coach Will Friend, a Mississippian from Neshoba County, didn’t think his group of physical enough when Georgia completed spring drills with its G Day game. …

Seems to me that he could be a pretty good one.
