The SEC West is a monster.
Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, LSU, Ole Miss, Texas A&M, and Mississippi State are some of the toughest teams in all of college football. Grant Wiley created a "Vengeance" hype video to get people pumped for an amazing 2015 season. Judging by this video, that's exactly what it will be.
Good luck getting out of this division alive.

If Georgia Tech is going to succeed this fall, they're going to do it as a family.
The program has released a hype video to show just how hard the Yellow Jackets have been working this offseason, and it's no joke. Narrated by Derrick Moore's speech, the Orange Bowl Champions have their sites set on bigger goals in 2015.

Miami officially joined forces with Adidas on Saturday night at the Fontainebleau’s LIV nightclub. The Hurricanes unveiled their new uniforms under the Adidas banner, and the new designs aren’t a drastic switch from the color scheme the program has used in previous years. Miami will have orange, white and green uniforms and alternate looks are expected during the year.
Even though the Hurricanes have made a few alterations to their uniforms in recent years, the “U” is still one of college football’s most recognizable helmets. While the color scheme didn't change much, these uniforms are much closer to the design the top Miami teams wore in the 1980s and 1990s.
Here’s an overview of Miami’s new uniforms with Adidas for 2015:

Penn State is reverting to the nameless jerseys and fans couldn't be happier about it.
To commemorate such an occassion, the program released a video of former players discussing the importance of having no name on the back of the jersey. The old sayings ring true, it's about team and unity.
"Christian Hackenberg has so much respect for the 14's before him."
Ending an image of the name being torn from the jerseys is Penn State's way bringing back what never should have left.

Having grown up and lived in Mississippi for most of his life, Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze stated how the pride he has for his home state. However, that didn’t stop him from stating his opinion that the state flag, which displays the Confederate emblem in the corner, should be changed in some fashion.
Freeze noted how some groups have used the Confederate Flag as a symbol of hate, which has sparked a national debate. At the SEC Media Days, Freeze was asked about his opinion on the issue, and he made his stance clear. Meanwhile, Mississippi State Head Coach Dan Mullen didn’t give a straight answer when asked about the matter, rather explaining the diversity at his school.
See Freeze's post about SEC Media Days:
It is an honor to represent RebelNation and our great University and players at SEC media days. I am blessed and living a dream! #GoRebs— Hugh Freeze (@CoachHughFreeze) July 16, 2015

College football’s media days are usually filled with a bunch of coach speak or comments that aren’t bulletin board material for other teams in its conference.
However, that wasn’t the case for Arkansas coach Bret Bielema.
Arkansas finished its 2014 season with a blowout win over Texas in the Texas Bowl. But that’s not the highlight of Bielema’s comments about the game from SEC Media Days.
Bielema on kneeling on the 2-yard line vs. Texas: "It was a proud moment. Borderline erotic."— Barrett Sallee (@BarrettSallee) July 15, 2015
Bret Bielema on the erotic comment: "Did that go viral already?"— Barrett Sallee (@BarrettSallee) July 15, 2015
That's certainly an interesting way to describe the ending of a huge victory for Arkansas.
But should we surprised? Here's a comment from Bielema last year on one of his defensive tackles:
Bielema on Bijhon Jackson: "He has an incredible, incredible ass." http://t.co/MNcajxnWuL— Barrett Sallee (@BarrettSallee) July 18, 2014
And after putting its offensive line on the media guide, Bielema had this to say about this group:

People say over and over that the SEC is overrated. When Paul Finebaum says it, people tend to take notice.
While covering the SEC Media days, the radio host said the "toughest conference in football" is overrated. There's doubt the SEC will even get one team in the College Football Playoff. It's hard to believe that could be the case, but there's also a problem being the toughest conference; you have the toughest competition.
Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Mizzou, Texas A&M, Mississippi State, LSU and the rest. That's a scary list of direct competitors.
It's odd hearing it come from Finebaum since he is so heavily involved in the SEC and defending it. On the other hand, without the SEC being as dominant, one could argue Finebaum wouldn't be where he is.
With programs like Ohio State, Michigan, Oregon, and USC coming virtually out of nowhere, what is in store for the SEC in the coming years? The past couple of years proves the SEC can be beaten, and it may not even be that hard.
Fans in the South (not to mention ESPN's SEC Network) aren't ready to give up on the conference just yet.
Only time will tell if the SEC strikes the same fear in hearts as it once did.Tags Overtime

South Carolina has taken down the Confederate flag and although there are some that weren't happy about it, Steve Spurrier couldn't be more proud.
The South Carolina coach says it is going to help the state immensely. He spoke about the same issue in 2007, and was saddened that it took this long.
"I applaud our governor for setting the initiative ... and obviously it was received very well by just about everyone."

Former Florida State quarterback De'Andre Johnson is breaking his silence on what happened that night at the bar when a surveillance camera caught him punching a woman.
Johnson got caught in an altercation with a woman, regardless of how the situation escalated, he says he never should have let it get that far.
"I should've never raised my hand to her," Johnson said.
Johnson goes on to say how sorry he is for hurting his mother by getting caught in a situation like this. He mentioned that she didn't raise him this way and through the tears are words of sincerity. He also understands Florida State's decision to dismiss him.

The man who brought you the most convincing video for Ezekiel Elliott's bid for the Heisman, is back with another hit.
His beloved Ohio State Buckeyes are the centerpiece yet again. Meshed with highlights and a song the team needs to play in the locker room before each game, this video will get you excited for the second coming of the Silver Bullets.
Darron Lee, Joey Bosa, Elliott and more make appearances and if this is any indication, no one will want to be in the way of these Silver Bullets.
The song is great, but will the Buckeyes' play match?
