Breaking: Georgia WR Michael Bennett tore his ACL yesterday and is out for the rest of the season, per UGA.

From Seth Emerson on Twitter This is news you never want to hear. Georgia has had the best passing attack in the conference so far this season.

Rogers Redding, NCAA ref boss, says rule requiring players to sit a play for helmet off has not cut number of helmets flying off in games.

Tweet from Ray Glier. All the new rule has done is get people to talk about the new rule. At least the new kickoff rule is working as intended.

"Last year we weren’t coached very well. We weren’t as smart as players as we are this year with a change on defense." McNeal said. "Last year, we put on kind of a clown show, a lot of guys not doing their work and not doing their job. This year, we just detailed our work."

Brutal Honesty Demetruce McNeal is much happier with this year's Auburn defense than last year's. You could argue they still put on a bit of a clown show in allowing 410 yards and 28 points to ULM, but who's counting?

On replay, although contact was made to the receiver’s helmet, the primary contact from the Vanderbilt defender was to the shoulder area. The Vanderbilt defender never lowers his head and the contact is made with his facemask up looking at the South Carolina receiver. It was a foul because there was glancing contact to the receiver's helmet. In the UAB contest, based on video replays, the contact was initiated by a slight launch of the defender into the receiver and the primary contact was targeted directly into the receiver's facemask.

From the SEC The SEC released this statement to The State regarding why D.J. Swearinger got suspended for his hit against UAB but Vandy's Andre Hal did not have to sit for his hit on Justice Cunningham.

Smith: "Tyler Wilson took a hit to the head and was kept in Little Rock last night for observation. His prognosis is good." Day to day.

From Robbie Neiswanger It's good to hear that Wilson wasn't roughed up too badly, but even him being there won't make much of a difference this coming Saturday based on what I've seen of the Arkansas defense so far. Tevin Mitchel, who was carted off after a scary hit, is doubtful for the Bama game with what the team is calling "an injury above the shoulders". It sounds like he'll recover well, but he'll need more than a week to do so.

"I would hope that we have a conversation, which we haven't yet, that everybody plays a game on Thursday night during the (next scheduling) cycle," said Larry Templeton, an SEC consultant helping to put together future schedules. "There will be some schools that have difficulty hosting that game. But there would also be opportunities."

"Difficulty"? Yes, there would be some difficulty for some schools. Atlanta traffic comes to mind, as Blutarsky mentions. The enormous size of the state of Florida is another one. I'd love to see the league office try to explain to South Florida-based Gator fans how they should take off work early to drive 5-6 hours (at least) to get to Gainesville and another 5-6 hours afterwards to get home. The obvious solution would then be to send schools that can't practically host a Thursday game on the road; for instance, FSU has played plenty of Thursday road games for the ACC. Even so, it prevents a lot of fans from being able to make the trek to that road game, and the league is concerned about attendance. We'll have to see on this, but I'm not in favor of forcing schools to play on Thursdays if they don't want to.

Joker asked today if true freshmen would play at CB this year behind Neloms/Rice: "Yeah, we're going true freshmen. That's all we've got."

Junior receiver Da'Rick Rogers is suspended indefinitely for violation of team rules, per UT. Dooley will address situation after practice.

From Evan Woodberry of GoVolsXtra Woodberry also says that Rogers' status for the rest of the year is unknown according to the school. This is a big blow for a team that was looking to have a breakout season finally.

Saban said during the Dan Patrick Show on Tuesday, "LSU wasn't winning when I went there. Michigan State wasn't winning when I went there. Toledo wasn't winning when I went there. And Alabama really wasn't winning when I came here. I guess I gotta go someplace else. I don't know." He added, "I think it's great, I love Steve. I'm always anxious to hear what he has to say - it's always funny."

Saban responds to Spurrier Not a bad comeback to Spurrier's line about him from April, all things considered, but he completely missed (or avoided) Spurrier's actual point. Hit the link if you're lost on the exchange.

CBS Sports Network announces Houston Nutt will serve as studio analyst this year. He'll be joined by Ron Zook.

From Brandon Marcello Goodness, this makes CSN must-watch TV. For the first time, I feel like I'm going to miss out on something by not getting this channel.
