Friday Morning Update

Spanning the globe on a Friday morning …

Ole Miss faces Idaho tomorrow night at 6:30 at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. The Rebels’ next SEC opponent, Arkansas, is off this week and is getting a head start on preparation for Auburn, which travels to Fayetteville next Saturday when the Rebels are off. …

No. 1 Alabama wants to build on its penalty-free game against the Razorbacks and play more disciplined football. …

From Baton Rouge, a seldom used running back is suspended indefinitely after his second arrest. Jeryl Brazil hadn’t played much and didn’t travel to Ole Miss, but now he won’t be someone the Tigers turn to for increased offensive production.

Georgia may be getting a couple of key offensive performers back for its game against Florida in Jacksonville a week from Saturday.

From its standpoint, Florida is spending its bye week looking for answers on both sides of the ball. That’s why Gators coach Will Muschamp had his coaches in the office this week, not out on the road. …

Tennessee beat writer Wes Rucker digs the Vols’ orange pants when on the road rather than the solid white look. I tend to agree.

There’s been no definitive word on the status of Johnny Football for Texas A&M’s home game against Vanderbilt this week. It has been established, however, that the Commodores will be without their starting quarterback, Austyn Carta-Samuels and will start redshirt freshman Patton Robinette.
