Making the rounds in the SEC:

At least one member of Alabama's compliance staff has flown to Indianapolis to meet with NCAA enforcement officials concerning the fishing trip involving Julio Jones and Mark Ingram, The Tuscaloosa News' Cecil Hurt and Tommy Deas report. Alabama has not self-reported any violations.


Police saw Auburn running back Eric Smith knock another Auburn student unconscious last week, according to police documents. Smith has been hit with a third-degree assault complaint and surrendered to police Monday. He has not been allowed to practice with the football team since the incident.


Florida senior safety Dorian Munroe, who missed all of last season with a torn ACL, had another procedure on his knee Monday and will be out five to six weeks.


South Carolina starting defensive end Clifton Geathers remains suspended and will miss the opener against North Carolina State after suffering a eye injury in a fight at a Columbia nightclub.


After being the most penalized team in the SEC last season, Georgia is getting tough on penalties.


Vanderbilt senior running back Jared Hawkins, who's been sidelined for much of preseason camp with a surgically repaired foot and sore hamstring, says he doesn't plan on giving up the starting job.


Mississippi State running back Arnil Stallworth has fought back from an ACL injury this past spring to give the Bulldogs another option in a loaded backfield.


Some of the Auburn receivers are beginning to separate themselves, and one of them is true freshman DeAngelo Benton.
