With college hoops in the rear-view mirror, it’s time to now turn our attention to spring football, where a number of college football’s top teams have either just finished practice, or will wrap up this weekend.
Of course nowhere is the attention greater, the scrutiny tougher and the wins more plentiful than in the SEC, the home of seven straight championships. And on Tuesday, our old friend Barrett Sallee stopped by for the first of two SEC spring practice podcasts.

Barrett has a new job at the Bleacher Report, but the same passion for SEC football and on Tuesday we discussed the following:
- The fallout from the mess at Arkansas: Barrett’s initial thoughts, what’s next for Arkansas, and how much blame does AD Jeff Long have for bringing Bobby Petrino to Fayetteville in the first place?
- On the field, how does Arkansas recover? We know Tyler Wilson is great, but what about the offensive line and defense? Are they improved enough for Arkansas to be a real player next year?
- Moving to Alabama, is there a real possibility that Alabama can repeat? If not, is a 10-win season (like in 2010) the floor for a Nick Saban coached team?
- Over at LSU, is no news, actually good news? And outside of Zach Mettenberger taking over at quarterback, did anything actually happen worth noting?
- After taking in Auburn’s spring game in person, can the Tigers surprise some people in the West? Also, is it addition by subtraction with Gus Malzahn gone to Arkansas State?
- Barrett explains why it’s put up or shut up time for Dan Mullen at Mississippi State, and why he loves Hugh Freeze at Ole Miss.
- And finally, Barrett shares his thoughts on Texas A&M arrival in college football’s toughest conference.
Folks, spring is in the air, so what better what to turn your attention to college football, then a 50-minute, no-holds barred discussion of the SEC West. Barrett knows this conference (and obviously division too) as well as anyone, and he shares knowledge that you just can’t find anywhere else.
