Mizzou Links: SEC Media Days roll on, and Jabari Brown scores 20 in Summer League

Steve Spurrier sucked up most of the oxygen at Day 2 of SEC Media Days (and with good reason), Jabari Brown went off in NBA Summer League (with one good eye), and Michael Scherer and Kentrell Brothers made the Butkus Award watch list.

The Trib: Sankey ushers in new era for SEC

Sankey, who has experience working in compliance at the NCAA level and who Slive originally brought in to help clean up the SEC’s off-field image, thinks the three prongs feed into each other.

"Never return a championship, never pull down a championship banner, never vacate any wins and never have a team banned from postseason competition due to NCAA infractions or the lack of academic success under the NCAA’s academic performance program," Sankey said of the league’s goals. "To maximize the SEC’s leadership position, we all realize the collective loss associated with compliance problems. The problems will arise, and we understand that to be the case, but we must deal with each properly and seek to deal with those issues with integrity."

PowerMizzou: Five questions for Mizzou

Is this the best secondary Gary Pinkel has had?

Many would argue the weakest position for the Tigers under Gary Pinkel for a long time was cornerback. But E.J. Gaines became a star and the Tigers got good play last year after Gaines left out of Aarion Penton, Kenya Dennis and John Gibson. All three are back this year and there's enough depth at the position that Mizzou moved Raymond Wingo to receiver in the spring (though the argument could be made that had more to do with lack of depth at receiver and we aren't sure the move is permanent just yet). The Tigers have some exciting young players like Anthony Sherrills and Tavon Ross at safety and this has the potential to be the best secondary Pinkel has put on the field. And considering the situation up front, they'll probably have to be better than years past because the pressure from the front four seems likely to decrease.
