Thursday Morning Update

Spanning the globe on a Thursday morning …

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney says tackling cost of attendance has been a “nightmare.” …

From Bleacher Report, a video feature on Ole Miss wide receiver Laquon Treadwell. …

At Wednesday’s Rebel Road Trip stop in Pascagoula Ross Bjork told the Sun Herald a renewal of the Ole Miss-Southern Miss basketball series could come about down the road, but nothing is on the horizon for a renewal of the football series. …

Baylor coach Art Briles says he’ll use 6-7, 410-pound LaQuan McGowan as his starting tight end this season. McGowan caught a 21-yard touchdown pass in last year’s Cotton Bowl. Briles calls him “the most unique football player in the United States with his combination of size and athletic skill.” Yeah, but can he be your short-yardage quarterback and also play left tackle? Seems like Jeremy Liggins would provide stiff competition for that title. …

Some former Ole Miss track athletes doing well in their careers:

LSU coaches are getting peppered with quarterback questions as they make public appearances. Offensive coordinator Cam Cameron shed no light on the Tigers’ quarterback battle at a stop in Alexandria but did note national champion Ohio State and the fact that three quarterbacks played key roles in leading the Buckeyes to the title. …

Another Cam had words of wisdom to share with another Tigers quarterback. …

While on the subject of quarterbacks, what would you think about Ohio State’s Braxton Miller in the SEC West, perhaps at Alabama or LSU? Just a rumor right now. …

This is Derrick Millinghaus’ brother. He got the tall gene:

Millinghaus hit the shot against Missouri in the Rebels’ 2013 SEC tournament opener that made their run to the title possible.

He’s at Tennessee Tech now, his third school. …

Interesting read here on how Bob Stoops appears to be taking a more hands-on approach to recruiting at Oklahoma. …

New Georgia offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer seems driven to show the Bulldogs’ offense will be more than running back Nick Chubb. …

The dropping of UAB football caused a stir last season, but that wasn’t the first time killing the program was considered. …
