Watch Louisiana QB Lowell Narcisse commit to Auburn | AL.com

Four-star quarterback prospect Lowell Narcisse of St. James, La., announced his commitment to Auburn over LSU, Alabama and Clemson Monday night.

Most important position: Alabama Crimson Tide - SEC Blog - ESPN

Is true sophomore Hootie Jones ready for the spotlight? Three years later, can Geno Smith fulfill the promise he showed as a freshman? Setting aside the hype, what can we really expect from Ronnie Harrison as a rookie? How will Eddie Jackson do after making the transition from corner to safety this offseason? For that matter, do we believe he’ll have the same athleticism he showed pre-knee surgery?

Huh? That's just stupid. If there is any place where Alabama needn't be concerned, it's at safety.

Potential SEC contenders relying on players back from injury | College Football

The fortunes of several potential Southeastern Conference contenders could hinge largely on players returning from serious injuries. Two of Mississippi's — and the SEC's — top players, left tackle Laremy Tunsil and receiver Laquon Treadwell, are returning from broken legs. Alabama is getting back versatile tailback Kenyan Drake, who also had a broken leg, and Auburn has defensive end Carl Lawson and guard Alex Kozan in the lineup again after they missed all of the 2014 season.

One lineman on each side of the ball doesn't address the rest of the gaping holes in that team.

Florida State’s ‘Red Lightning’ ballboy is going to the NFL | For The Win

Frankie Grizzle-Malgrat, AKA “Red Lightning,” AKA “The Red-Haired Ballboy from FSU,” AKA “The Ginger Ninja,” AKA “Grizzle,” AKA “Malgrat,” AKA “The Tallahassee Tantrum,” AKA “The One Man Victory Dance,” AKA “The Sultan of the Sidelines,” AKA “Frankie Footballs,” the red-haired ballboy who became famous for giving 110% on the FSU sidelines, is going pro. No, seriously. The ballboy is going pro.

The SEC West is still the best division, but the Pac-12 South is a close second - SBNation.com

So as college football breaks up into smaller and smaller subsets, here's a look at how the divisions rank by the average S/P+ projections of each team. There are other ways to judge division strength — for instance, if you value having elite teams, the Big Ten East and Pac-12 North could be higher — but this method places a premium on having good teams top to bottom.

With rise of personal coaches, can anyone still be the QB? | College Football

Personal training starts early for most quarterbacks and it can be costly. It is a booming business, with some parents spending thousands of dollars per year to refine their sons' skills and keep up with the competition. Morris and former NFL quarterback Trent Dilfer are among those who are trying to make sure that quarterback doesn't become an exclusive position, only attainable by kids who have access to high-level training. "Everybody should have an opportunity to be the quarterback. It shouldn't be who your dad was, who your high school coach was and how much money you have," Dilfer said.

Finally, LOL

Ex-caddie destroys Robert Allenby after getting fired on the course | For The Win

The caddie fought back by bringing up a bizarre incident involving Allenby earlier this year. At the time, Allenby claimed that he sustained a series of injuries after being drugged, kidnapped and assaulted. Subsequent evidence, however, seemed to reveal that his injuries were the result of an alcohol-induced fall.

So much fantastic shade in here.
