Thursday Morning Update

Spanning the globe on a Wednesday morning …

Here’s an NFL draft prospect preview on Robert Nkemdiche. According to this one he has to work his way into the first round. …

Ken Crain and the equipment guys getting helmets ready for Saturday:

Interesting fact here:

Most conference comparisons these days are not about the SEC and Big 10 but the SEC and Pac-12 particularly the SEC West and Pac-12 South. …

Athlon says the FCS will get in some licks against FBS this weekend but doesn’t put Ole Miss on its upset alert. A painful prediction for Alma Mater U which has some key injuries and is taking on Georgia. The Indian/Warhawks are heavy underdogs but are not going to concede the run game to Nick Chubb and the Bulldogs. Good stuff at the 45-second mark:

Ole Miss has a quarterback starter, at least for one game, but the competition is unresolved at Alabama.

Vanderbilt won’t announce its quarterback starter until kickoff tonight against Western Kentucky, but honestly I haven’t heard a lot of demand for that information. …

Twenty-two true freshmen will be on the travel roster for Tennessee as it takes on Bowling Green in Nashville Saturday. …

Former Nebraska star Lawrence Phillips, incarcerated in California already, has been charged with the murder of his cellmate, AP reports. …

    I don’t know where Robert will end up in the draft, but it is difficult to take that article too seriously when they don’t even know what position he typically plays.

    The Gerrand Johnson chat was great. He sounds more like a coach than a college player. Good luck ULM!

    Kmemdechi will be a second round pick, not because of talent, but poor coaching. Although he isn’t very fast.

      You obviously don’t pay much attention to the game, if you even watch Ole Miss games. Poor coaching?!! How would you even begin to say that for one of the top defenses in the country? I will take the coaching of OM defense any day of the week. Robert K is an excellent defender. He doesn’t have all the heralded numbers because offenses key on him, much like Chris Jones at MSU. That is one of the reasons for Haynes great success last year. Haynes is also a great player. I suspect more teams will take notice of him this year, putting less pressure on Robert. Robert has a good future in the NFL.
