SEC Teams Start Football Practice This Week For The 2015 Season

0027 football 7B7E1416 150x150 SEC Teams Start Football Practice This Week For The 2015 Season Yep it’s finally here. SEC teams start football practice today or later this week in anticipation of the 2015 season. One common theme as always was the heat. Man it’s hot in the good ole south in August.

Players that came down from the north or  from states out west will no doubt have some problems with the heat and humidity for a few weeks. It takes some adjusting to get used to it.

Most teams will be looking closely at the QB’s for a few weeks. Several teams have not named a starter. Lots of competition.

Two teams that started practice today Georgia and South Carolina are both looking for someone to step up and take over the starting QB job.  Steve Spurrier says he will have a 4 player battle for the job
two weeks before he narrows it down to a final two. Most think Connor Mitch is the logical starter but after that the number 2 spot is pretty murky.

Georgia has 3 players fighting the starting QB position and Coach Richt says there is no favorite yet.



College World Series 2015 Scores: Wins for Gators, Commodores, Cavaliers

Will an SEC Team Prevail at the College World Series

“We were trying to win a ballgame, and it would have been terrible if I had struck out with a man on second base,” Heyward said, according to The Associated Press. “I had to have a good at-bat, and I tried to put the barrel on the ball. It happened.”

The Hurricanes (50-16) will play Wednesday against Florida. The Razorbacks (40-25) went two and out at the CWS for only the second time in eight appearances, the AP reported.

Also Monday, Vanderbilt freshman Jeren Kendall hit a home run to cap a three-run ninth inning comeback and beat Cal State Fullerton 4-3 in the continuation of a game that was suspended Sunday in the sixth inning because of bad weather.

The Titans (39-24) will face LSU in an elimination game at 3 p.m. ET Tuesday. The defending national champion Commodores (48-19) advance to play TCU at 8 p.m..

Lightning and rain forced the game to be suspended Sunday night in the bottom of the sixth inning with the Titans ahead 3-0.

In the nightcap, Virginia’s Brandon Waddell turned in his third straight strong outing in the College World Series, combining with Josh Sborz to two-hit Florida 1-0.

It appears the SEC may have 5 teams in the 2015 College World Series. That’s unheard of. I can’t recall one league having that many teams in the CWS.

SEC Network-Plus draws more digital viewers for LSU baseball games than football games…What?

SEC Network-Plus draws more digital viewers for LSU baseball games

LSU has ruled the Southeastern Conference — and the nation — in paid baseball attendance for decades.

Now the team can claim the Internet, too.

LSU baseball games this year drew more digital viewers than any other sports event broadcasted on the SEC Network’s online platform, SEC Network-Plus — far outpacing even spring football games.

LSU’s conference baseball games this season averaged nearly 20,000 online viewers per game — tripling the league average of 6,572 for online-only SEC baseball games and leaving Kevin Wagner smiling.

“The SEC was blown away by this. It boggles the mind,” said Wagner, LSU’s assistant athletic director overseeing the school’s SEC Network productions. “Going into this, we all knew the (LSU baseball numbers) were going to be good. I don’t think anybody knew it was going to be that popular.”
