    Big A Latest Bama News 5/30/12

    This is Where the football season never ends! Bama News first and foremost, interesting SEC news, and salient football news.

    Eventually, everyone will have to compromise in some way. The SEC coaches probably won't get their top-four wish and probably will instead have to settle for three conference champs and a wildcard or some similar iteration. The coaches in other leagues probably will have to accept the fact that two SEC teams will eventually find a way to make the playoff. And even if Spurrier and Miles fail in their attempt to emphasize division records, they'll plant a seed of discord that could in a few years grow into a change in SEC scheduling philosophy. Of course, all this arguing may.....

    "Competition is not the issue," Miles said. "We welcome competition. But let's build a structure that is equitable for defining our conference champion." "Traditional games are important to our fans," Saban said. "All the games we play against conference opponents are important. And they should all count. If they don't count, why play them? If you do that, we aren't really a conference, just a couple of divisions." For the moment, the status quo is likely to count. But...

    Time is supposed to heal all wounds, but it appears that LSU football has scars that won't heal. The evi.dence has poured out of the mouths of everyone from the chancellor to the AD to the head football coach. How shaken has LSU been? The chancellor and AD don't want to play Florida every year anymore. If they do, the head football coach doesn't want it to count in the SEC standings. Next thing you know, defensive coordinator John Chavis will come out in favor of a ban on tackling and a switch to flag football....

    Big A Re: Latest Bama News 5/30/12

    South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier backtracked from comments he made earlier this year in which he appeared to take a shot at Alabama coach Nick Saban. In April, Spurrier told ESPN.com's Southeastern Conference blogger Chris Low that Saban needs to prove his greatness by winning big elsewhere. "If he wants to be the greatest coach or one of the greatest coaches in college football, to me, he has to go somewhere besides Alabama and win, because they've always won there at Alabama," Spurrier told Low. At the time, many pointed out the strangeness of Spurrier's comments considering the fact that Saban won big at LSU, with two SEC titles and a national championship in 2003. Spurrier clarified his comments Tuesday at the opening day of SEC spring meetings. "No, he's a great coach. That wasn't what I was talking about," Spurrier said. "I was just saying, they won their 14th national championship this year, right? OK. ...

    Steve Spurrier, taking a break from selling his short-sighted and self-interested divisional play scheme, points out the flaws in that idea: The coaches poll is literally drenched in conflicts of interests and questionable voting. "Obviously, probably most of us vote for our conference guys and our buddies around the country," Spurrier said. "A coaches' vote is probably not as accurate as the media vote."...

Crudup Jr. came to Alabama in 2010 after one year at nearby Stillman College, where he was the team's offensive coordinator. He first became acquainted with Alabama's coaches by helping out at various camps....

    The great Jim Brown might not see anything outstanding in Trent Richardson, but the Browns office sure did. In fact, the name "Adrian Peterson" came up in the Browns offices when they were evaluating Richardson. The Browns acknowledge Peterson is a little faster, but they think Richardson is better in pass protection, and they believe he is one of the best backs to enter the league in quite awhile. The Browns love his versatility and plan on getting a lot of out of Richardson ASAP. They are not the only ones who think Richardson will be a quick study. Richardsonís presence does not mean the team is giving up on injury-prone.....

    It's clear that the SEC has dominated college football for the last several years, and a lot of that has been due to their outstanding defenses. Alabama and LSU's talent-laden squads last year were, of course, Exhibit A. Yet almost all of the rest of college football has been paced by offensive juggernauts like Oregon, Stanford, Oklahoma State, and so on. Obviously whether the SEC's defense-led dominance can continue is really the most pertinent question in all of college football in terms of deciding who will be the next champion. But the complexion of the SEC itself has changed with the addition of Missouri and Texas A&M, two spread teams whose.....

    According to the bowl agreement, if the SEC champion is playing for the national championship in a given year, the school at the bottom of the SEC standings will take their place in order to make the Big 12's loss all the more humiliating.

    Sources told CBSSports.com that the SEC is expected to announce the league's scheduling opponents for the next 12 years and that the rotating cross division game will be a one-year rotation instead of a two-year home and home rotation.
    The SEC's spring meetings began Tuesday in Sandestin. An official announcement on the league's future schedule could come on Friday.
    In other words: an SEC West team would play six games against the other six SEC West opponents, one game against a permanent SEC East rival and one game against a rotating SEC East team.
    That rotating opponent will change every year, meaning each league team will play every other league member at least once every six years. If the league had opted for a home and home series between the rotating teams, it would have taken 12 years for each SEC school to play each other.

    The Third Saturday in October is safe, and we get to rotate through the other division even faster? I like it.
