On McKnight

Some of you caught that Pete Carroll said Joe McKnight’s gained 20 pounds since he arrived at USC. The weight gain is an attempt to become an every-down back.
Remember Reggie Bush eventually increased his weight to 200 pounds and still had critics who said he was not an every-down back. The key for McKnight will be to gain weight without sacrificing his quickness.

No. 1? Where?

A lot of pre-season rankings make Georgia the No. 1 team but the SEC media didn’t even pick the Bulldogs to win their own conference. And it wasn’t even close.
Florida received 36 ballots, Georgia on 18, Auburn 13 and LSU, Tennessee and Ole Miss one each. In the Eastern Division, Florida had 45 first-place votes, Georgia (23) and
Tennessee (2).
