When I think of second day stories in the SEC, I think of Marcus Lattimore and his gruesome injury against Tennessee. This story on BleacherReport was not written the day or even the week after the injury, but it made an injury that had been talked about by many college football analysts and writers relevant by relating it to Lattimore’s success or lack thereof in the NFL.
This article is aslo from BleacherReport and grades Arkansas State and Kent State players during Arkansas State’s victory over Kent State in the GoDaddy.com bowl game last December. I love how BleacherReport ranks the performances of key players in the aftermath of big games like these because it is a way for them to go beyond the statistics and really analyze how each player that you might have your eye on performed that day. It makes for a great read.
