The SEC 's At It Again

No wonder the Southeast Conference is considered by many experts as the toughest college football conference. They’re playing almost year round. Spring practice starts down there on February 29, almost the same time as baseball spring training. The LSU Tigers BCS Championship game was January 7. Less than two months later and they’re back at it.

Combing the sports section you’d notice that LSU’s quarterback Ryan Perriloux was suspended indefinitely for violating team rules. Perrilloux is the favorite to start at quarterback, the position vacated by Matt Flynn. Right below that was a blurb about Tennessee punter Britton Colquitt’s suspension for five games and losing his scholarship after being charged and arrested for drunk driving and leaving the scene of an accident. What’s going on down there boys?

Over in South Carolina, Steve Spurrier country, Gamecock freshman receiver Dion Lecorn spent a night in lockup after an arrest for marijuana possession. Lecorn and another freshman receiver Matt Clements, who was with Lecorn, were both suspended from the team by Coach Spurrier.

The police blotter’s getting a little thick down there. But bring on spring practice, now just a week and a half away. Double sessions, full pads, knock those cobwebs out and punish those players for their mis-deeds.
