3. Matt Hayes on Auburn’s troubles: “The guy charged with fixing it all, new coach Gus Malzahn, was knee-deep in the process little more than a year ago.”
4. Florida coach Will Muschamp has nothing to add to a previous denial he paid an Auburn player when he was defensive coordinator: ”There’s nothing to dignify any other response other than exactly what you’ve read.”
5. Rehab on the shoulder of Ole Miss quarterback Bo Wallace going well, could start throwing in June. But the Rebels have missed him this spring.
6. Both Kiehl Frazier and Jonathan Wallace threw more than 20 passes in Auburn’s Saturday scrimmage. Malzahn: ”It is really hard to look good in a scrimmage until you start settling in with specific personnel.” Undisclosed injury for running back Tre Mason. Tigers cancel Monday’s practice.
7. Not much separation in the quarterback battle at Tennessee between Justin Worley and Nathan Peterman. Coach Butch Jones “not pleased at all” with the offense. “An offense seemingly bereft of playmakers struggled.”

15. One of the stars of Alabama’s first spring scrimmage – wide receiver DeAndrew White. He’s one of three Bama receivers coming off injuries in 2012. Nick Saban: “DeAndrew White is doing really well – did a really good job, made some big plays today, actually.”
