Athlon's SEC Coaches Comments

I love this article every year. So much fun....usually. This year, the coaches were fairly reserved.

Some things that stood out:

On Tenneessee-
“The next couple years, I think if they can keep some guys healthy and win a close game or two it wouldn’t surprise me to see them at nine wins.”
On Missouri-
"You can say the East has been down, but you don’t think Georgia or Florida would’ve liked to go to Atlanta the last two years? Hell, South Carolina has only gotten there one time ever since they’ve been in the league. It’s pretty amazing what they’ve done there over the last decade.” 
On South Carolina-
“Who’s going to replace Dylan Thompson? He was a tough customer. I really don’t know much about their young guys."
On Florida-
“Who are their playmakers? The Demarcus Robinson kid has a chance to be pretty special at wideout, but who else? There’s a reason they struggled to score points.”

On Auburn-
“Can they get consistent play on the back end? That’ll be the key. Jonathan Jones made a bunch of plays last year, and he’s pretty good.” 
“I’m mystified why they haven’t been good offensively. They have dynamic receivers. Their offensive line is big, and (Leonard) Fournette is phenomenal. They have talent on the perimeter. Really, they have everything they need. If they can get better quarterback play, they’ll be one of the better offenses in our league.” 
On Ole Miss-
“Do they have a big-time SEC running back? If not, your quarterback better be special. As good as Bo Wallace was, everybody knew he’d beat himself a little bit, too.” 
On Texas A&M-
“They lost a lot in the secondary and have some guys back in the middle, but I’m not sure how elite they really are.”
