SEC football media days preview: top five story lines for West Division | Ledger-Enquirer.com

All due respect to teams in the East, but the conference’s best bets to run its Bowl Championship Series title streak to six years are in the West. Alabama and LSU, national champions in 2007 and ’09 respectively, are consensus top-10 teams. The Crimson Tide returns seven starters on a defense that should rank among the best in the country. LSU, with a good mix of players back on both sides of the ball and one last chance for quarterback Jordan Jefferson, are right there too. Both teams have question marks (quarterback for Alabama and, well, quarterback for LSU), but their strengths more than make up for them. The West had the four best teams in the league last year and is home to the last two national champions (Alabama and Auburn). If a team can navigate that minefield again, it will be in the mix for the BCS title.

Tower of Bammer " Blog Archive " Yahoo Sports Drops Actual Bomb on SEC West

After months of threats, Yahoo Sports finally ‘did it’ and dropped tons of exploding ordinance on Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana.

Legal issues could arise from paying student-athletes - ESPN

But move beyond that. Pay the players who fill those six-figure stadiums. Pay the athletes who promote the brand of the alma mater. Pay the female athletes, too, because who needs a lawsuit? Work out your budget. Feel magnanimous about putting more money in the pockets of student-athletes. Now, go hire an attorney. "If they are paid more than the cost of attendance," Matt Mitten, the director of the National Sports Law Institute at Marquette Law School, said of student-athletes, "they would likely be characterized as employees. And that has a number of implications." If they are employees, some or all of the athletic scholarships they receive might be taxed as income.
