The big storyline in the SEC this weekend continues to revolve around QBs. A few "starters" have been named -- Treon Harris and Chad Kelly -- but snaps will be shared in Gainesville and Oxford. Coaches want to see these guys play live and against real teams. Kelly has the edge at Ole Miss but I still think Will Grier emerges at Florida

Urban Meyer gets QB clue from practice

The Ohio State coach has yet to name a starter for Monday's opener, but got a good gauge from Wednesday's practice: "I have an idea who's gonna take the first snap. The favorite? I'm not sure I like that word, but I have a feeling on who's gonna take the first snap."

Ohio State RB Ezekiel Elliott, actually able to bench press again after his wrist surgery, joked that he was 8 pounds heavy at the start of training camp thanks to his added muscle. "I'm definitely stronger," Elliott said. "But I'm in tip-top shape right now, the best shape I've ever been in."

Two of Oregon's three biggest questions were center and QB (other being secondary). And 1st year newcomers will man both spots. Yet both grad transfers not only are seniors with considerable starting experience, QB Vernon Adams and C Matt Hegarty have starting experience in the Pac-12. Adams put up huge numbers while going 1-1 vs. Oregon State and Washington and Hegarty had 4 starts at Notre Dame against PAC-12 teams. These guys are new but hardly green.
