SEC's lunch links
By David Ching
The talk around the SEC today is how three teams from the conference -- Florida, Kentucky and Tennesse -- reached the round of 16 in the NCAA men's basketball tournament. And this was supposed to be a down year for the league.
But we're here to discuss football. Let's take a look at what's happening around the league:
Auburn offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee says Tigers quarterback Nick Marshall is talented enough to play the position in the NFL.
LSU linebacker Kendell Beckwith is relishing his new role after playing defensive end as a freshman.
Now healthy, quarterback Brandon Allen is preparing for a position battle at Arkansas.
Georgia receiver Malcolm Mitchell -- attempting to return from a torn ACL from last season -- suffered another injury last week, although the Bulldogs' medical staff says he'll be back in time for August practices.
South Carolina offensive lineman Na'Ty Rodgers could face suspension after his alcohol-related arrest from early Sunday.
The defense had the edge in Vanderbilt's spring scrimmage on Saturday.
Alabama's players like what new offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin is teaching thus far.
Jeff Driskel looked sharp working with the first-team offense in Florida's practice on Saturday, according to the Gainesville Sun's Robbie Andreu.
With Missouri's team on spring break, here is a spring practice reset from the Columbia Daily Tribune.
