SEC Fallout: Maty Mauk, Mark Richt, Leonard Fournette, and more.

Welcome to the Fallout - SEC Wednesday edition



Mauk suspended.
Missouri suspends starting quarterback Maty Mauk and offensive tackle Malik Cuellar for Saturday's game against South Carolina for the vague-as-always "disciplinary reasons." (Dr. Saturday)


Talkin' 'bout my reputation.
Kevin Scarbinsky looks at how a win in Saturday's Alabama-Georgia game could shape the reputation of Georgia head coach Mark Richt. A win would mark the first (and possibly only) time that Richt would have defeated a Saban-coached 'Bama and a Steve Spurrier-coached South Carolina in the same season. (al.com)

When it all changed.
Barrett Sallee looks back at the infamous 2008 Alabama vs. Georgia "Blackout" game as the point in time where Alabama Saban returned to national prominence. 'Bama won the game, which is also seen as the major source of PTSD amongst UGA fans. (Bleacher Report)

Fournette Son. 
Ron Higgins looks at the increasing chances that LSU running back Leonard Fournette will be this season's Heisman  Trophy winner. (nola.com)

Cause for concern?
Jeff Gray says Ole Miss needs some restructuring of its running game as issues that dogged the team in the 2014 season resurface. (Red Cup Rebellion)

Could you be a little less specific?
Kentucky head coach Mark Stoops refused to get into specifics about the absence from practice of running back Boom Williams, saying only that the Wildcats' leading rusher was dealing with "personal issues." (The Lexington Herald-Leader)

Gone, gone, the damage done. 
Nathaniel Rutherford explains why a Tennessee win over Arkanasas this coming Saturday won't help the perception that 2015 is becoming a disappointing season for the Vols and head coach Butch Jones.  (Rocky Talk Top)

There's a possibility, but no chance.
Craig Stephenson ponders whether "Auburn will be favored in another SEC game this season." The Tigers still have to face Kentucky, Arkansas, Ole Miss, Texas A&M, Georgia, and Alabama this season. (al.com)
