TEAMS THAT COULD BREAK THE SEC’S BCS STREAK

NO. 4, THE BIG 12 CHAMP

This is, without question, a bit of a cop out. But the Big 12 is hard to figure out.

The conference should produce one top team capable of giving the SEC a run for the BCS title. It’s just hard to single out one from what should be a very competitive Big 12.

It’s hard to find anyone who doesn’t have two-time defending national champion Alabama pegged as the No. 1 team going into the 2013 season.

They figured to have a great shot at doing so thanks to the strength of their offense which returned every starter and several key backups for next season. But after a mediocre showing in the spring game, should Georgia worry about their big plans next fall?

 

From Bama Hammer

A vital part to the Alabama Crimson Tide’s basketball team announced on Tuesday that he will not be returning to Tuscaloosa next season. Gueye told al.com‘s Don Kausler that he plans to transfer at the end of the spring semester.

Former Auburn defensive back Mike McNeil was sentenced to serve at least three years in prison Monday after pleading guilty to first-degree robbery for an incident his attorney characterized as “possibly a prank.”
