Monday Morning Upate

Spanning the globe on a Friday morning …

Looks like Alabama may have had a player sustain a major injury in its 43-37 loss to Ole Miss Saturday night/Sunday morning.

If so, this would be the second straight year for an Alabama player to have a season-ending injury against Ole Miss:

We will get somewhat updated injury report from Ole Miss at the Hugh Freeze presser today. I don’t expect any real Laremy Tunsil update.

It’s back to work this week and Ole Miss players and fans alike will have to shake off the euphoria of the weekend. The Rebels are at home Saturday night at 6 against an improved Vanderbilt team.

Remember LeBron James tweeting about Marshall Henderson during the 2013 NCAA basketball tournament? James tweeted about Ole Miss football Saturday night:

Alabama, meanwhile, is ranked No. 12 in the AP Top 25 this week, it’s lowest ranking in five years. …

Just watch this. I’ll mess it up if I try to explain it. Stunning honesty rarely seen among coaches in a sport we all know is emotional:

Hey, if you’re politicking in the South there’s only one place to be, and that’s at a college football game, right?

A neat hype video for BYU after its two-straight wins to open the season:

I would not vote for this guy. The focus needs to be on eliminating 8:15 games not 11:30 ones. …

An NFL opinion on LSU running back Leonard Fournette:

Then there’s this:

The praise started coming in for Fournette and LSU’s run game well before the Tigers’┬ádismantling of Auburn was complete.

One comment I saw was amazed at how all this was accomplished against “an SEC defense.” Not to belittle the accomplishment, but Auburn’s defense deserves as much study here as LSU’s run game. LSU played and SEC defense last week and was very good in the run game with 266 yards but was average in other areas and might very well have lost had Mississippi State had a better kicker.

We’re into Week 4 of the season now, and the fact is we’re still learning a lot about a lot of teams. That will continue for some time.

I expect that both Auburn and LSU will be better in deficient areas when Ole Miss faces them later this season. So too should be the Rebels.
