Duke started its "spring drills" on February 3 this year.  Old Dominion doesn't start until April 1.  There's little obvious geographic rhyme or reasoning to when teams get started.  It would make sense for teams in warmer climates to start sooner, but that doesn't explain Illinois starting February 14 and Arizona State on March 13.  Crazy!

Alabama will start spring practice March 21.  Not sure with Georgia.

Speaking of Bama an offseason workouts.  Everyone knows dual-threat quarterback Jalen Hurts is fast and talented; he proved that in 2016 by winning the SEC Offensive Player of the Year award.  as a freshman, Hurts has really stood out in the spring workouts by running a 4.48 40-yard dash.  He also put up 315 pounds on the power clean, squatted 455 pounds and bench-pressed 355 pounds.  Hurts is proving even as a young player how to be a leader in the weight room

During Miami's second spring practice under Mark Richt, all eyes will be on the quarterback position.  Three year starter Brad Kaaya is off to the NFL, but the Hurricanes have a loaded room of potential options to take his place.  Mark Rosier, Jack Allison, Evan Shirreffs, Cabe Welton and N'Kosi Perry will all compete for the starters job.  Rosier is the only contender who has started a game (2015, vs. Duke), and Allison has a big arm that could keep him in the competition, but Canes fans are looking to see 4-Star recruit N'Kosi Perry who won't be on campus until this summer.  Key battle for a very talented team.

LSU hit the practice fields for day 3 of spring practice, and much of the focus was on new offensive coordinator Matt Canada and the up-tempo, high volume presence he's brought to the Tigers.  LSU's new era of offense begins with lots of changes, motions and a whole lot of studying by the players.  Much excitement down in Baton Rouge these days.

Alabama will open spring practice Tuesday for the first of a scheduled 15 practices.  This will include a closed scrimmage for boosters on April 8th, and a scrimmage open to the media April 14th.  The spring game scheduled for April 22nd will wrap up spring drills.

Georgia is in a tight predicament at quarterback this spring with only two scholarship players.  Backup Brice Ramsey has announced he will transfer leaving only sophomore Jacob Eason (last year's starter) and incoming freshman Jake Fromm.

Not a good situation (injury) for a team hoping to win the SEC East Division.

Michigan is beginning year three under Jim Harbaugh.  Spring practice will begin Friday, March 24th for the Wolverines.  There's some mystery entering this season with high expectations after two 10-win seasons and a roster that lost 18 starters.  With few returning veterans, this spring will be as competitive as Michigan has seen in years.

South Carolina backup quarterback Brandon McIllwain will transfer to another school.  As a freshman last year, he passed for 600 yards and two scores and rushed for 127 yards and two touchdowns.  He started early in the season but was replaced by freshman Jake Bently the rest of the season.  McIllwain is also a MLB prospect.

Canes fans are looking to see 4-Star recruit N'Kosi Perry who won't be on campus until this summer.

Yeah Avavida, the kid is supposed to be a player.  Too bad he couldn't enroll early and go through spring practice.

Wisconsin will conduct the first of 15 practices this week.  The last is set for April 21, which is the Badgers annual Cardinal and White spring game, scheduled to start at 6:30 p.m. at Camp Randall Stadium.  After starting nine games during 2016, sophomore Alex (6-4, 220) enters spring practice as Wisconsin's starting quarterback. He passed for 1,262 yards, 9 touchdowns with 7 interceptions as a freshman last year.

Miami hit the practice fields Tuesday for the first of 15 practices.  Now in his second year at the helm, head coach Mark Richt said the difference was evident in the practice habits developed by players now in their second year in his system.  "Like I told the team after practice, you can tell who the veterans are and you can tell who knows how to practice and knowing what to do."  Richt said the focus of spring drills would be improving as a team more so than focusing on individual position battles.
