SECond Look takes a look at replacements for Bobby Petrino at Arkansas. They include Gus Malzahn, Paul Rhoads, Mark Hudspeth, Mario Cristobal and Skip Holtz. The logical choice here would be Malzahn because he’s an Arkansas native and an offensive-minded coach, much like Petrino. Malzahn would crawl through glass to get that job, no doubt. Skip Holtz would not be a bad hire, either. [AL.com]

New Alabama JUCO transfer Deon Belue is making a quick adjustment and is ready to play at Alabama this year. Belue failed to qualify at Alabama two years ago, and he’s finally donning the crimson he’s wanted to for awhile. Saban said he definitely thinks he will be a contributor to the team next year.

Bobby Petrino supporters, 200 in number, gathered on campus yesterday. Who knows what will happen with Petrino, but he does have some support. Why? Try 21-5 in the last two years and two bowl game victories in the last three years. [Arkansas Sports 360]

Several players are making a move at Auburn this spring. Some of those players include RB Tre Mason and RB Corey Grant. Obviously, the Tigers have Onterio McCalebb returning, so there will be a ton of talent at RB. Also, tight end CJ Uzomah has been playing very well as of late. There is a ton of young talent at Auburn, and it’s time they all step up this year. [AL.com]

Sophomore safety Marc Deas recently announced his transfer from Georgia. However, upon further evaluation and a change of heart, Deas returns to the Bulldogs’ team. Safety is a position of attrition right now for Georgia because several defensive backs will be suspended for the first couple of games. Deas played in 14 games last season but mostly on special teams. [AJC]

Derek Dooley says he is not disappointed with Tyler Bray’s spring, but he’s not been sharp lately. Dooley recently had the following to say about Bray’s spring: “I’m not disappointed in (Bray’s) offseason and his spring, he’s having a good spring,” Dooley said. “He just wasn’t as accurate, he wasn’t as sharp as he’s capable of being. I don’t think it was anything that we start panicking over. He just didn’t throw it as well as he can, and not having Justin sometimes hurt. We have a lot of guys out there at receiver probably trying to do too much. I’m not that concerned about it because he’s working really hard to get better.” [Go Vols Xtra]

Kevin Sumlin said four quarterbacks are working to grasp the system as fast as they can with only five weeks of practice. Matt Joeckel, Matt Davis, Johnny Manziel and Jameill Showers are the four he’s speaking of. Sumlin had this to say recently: “We’ve got a pretty good competition, guys are competing and every one of them has some positives and I think as coaches, what you try to do is reduce the negatives of any player, particularly the quarterback,” he said. “I think these guys are progressing just fine.” [Aggie Sports]
