Wednesday Morning Update

Spanning the globe on a Wednesday morning …

There may be some clarity on the status of Ole Miss cornerback Tee Shepard coming later today. It’s been reported that Shepard is considering leaving the program.

Shepard was not at practice yesterday. Defensive coordinator Dave Wommack responded to a question about Shepard by saying he would like Hugh Freeze to comment on that situation.

Freeze’s next scheduled media appearance is after practice today. The school could also send out a statement if it has something to report. …

Does icing the kicker work? Numbers say yes:

Texas A&M is 5-0. Here’s why the Aggies are different.

Not only does LSU have the good fortune of having struggling South Carolina on the schedule to begin with, the Tigers could get an extra SEC home game because of the flooding in and around Columbia.

Because of the flooding SEC Nation, the SEC Network’s version of Game Day, will move from Columbia to Knoxville for the Georgia-Tennessee game. Georgia has asked if it could spot Tennessee a two-touchdown lead before the game begins. (Not really). …

Could you see this happening:

This is indeed good news for Georgia. Sometimes it just seems like more with the emotional highs and lows of college football. Ole Miss is feeling this right now too, and the Rebels, like Georgia, have some things to fix:

Speaking of LSU, running back Leonard Fournette is not only the early favorite for the Heisman, he’s got the widest lead as an early favorite that the Trophy has seen in at least seven years. …

    Tee Shepard has a hearing impairment. He wears a hearing aids but apparently that doesn’t help when he’s playing an away game before a rowdy/noisy crowd. Communications is extremely important among the secondary group and if that breaks down, then players are out of position and you get scored on. Happened at Florida TOO MANY TIMES.
    Hopefully, Tee will stay and at least play in the ‘home games’.
