SEC WEST ROUND-UP: Julio Jones' star shining brightly in Bama

SEC West two-a-days round-up, as promised...

GAINESVILLE -- The SEC West round-up begins in Auburn, Ala., where the Tigers brawled earlier this Helmet_aub_2week during practice. No fighting reported from Saturday's closed-doors scrimmage but there were apparently a few highlights nonetheless. Offensive coordinator Tony Franklin's new spread-offense is apparently getting the team's speedy young receivers involved. Coach Tommy Tuberville praised true freshman receiver Philip Pierre-Louis of Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas for his work during two-a-days. 

--Up in Tuscaloosa, Crimson Tide freshman receiver Julio Jones apparently had an impressive scrimmage on Saturday. The practice was closed to the 16,058 beat writers who cover Alabama football, but the most powerful coach in sports watched intently.

Helmet_msu--About 90 minutes due west of Tuscaloosa, the Mississippi State Bulldogs scrimmaged on Saturday and worked on red-zone situations. Led by a solid group of linebackers, defense will likely once again be this team's strength.

--Driving north now to Oxford, where the Ole Miss Rebels have a battle brewing for the starting running back position.

Helmet_lsu--Down on the bayou, LSU coach Les Miles praised his defensive backs. [Thanks for the heads up, guys. Apparently I was the last one to know about Patrick Johnson changing his name to Patrick Peterson.]

--In Arkansas, the Hogs' defense is having trouble stopping the team's unproven offense. That might be a problem.

Regarding LSU, I guess you missed that Patrick Johnson changed his name to Patrick Peterson. That is why there is no mention of Johnson but Peterson is mentioned in the headline of the article.

Saban is the most powerful coach in sports? Now there's a new flash for you!
