Good afternoon, everyone! I don't know if I'm going to make this a regular feature or not, but for today I thought it might be good to catch up on some things that you may have missed during the week or over the weekend here at College and Magnolia and over other SB Nation sites as a whole. This includes some recruiting links, previews, and some information about things to come here at College and Mag.
Bud Elliot has a rundown on the Elite 11 and The Opening recruiting camps going on this coming week. There are a few Auburn targets competing at these camps, including QB Deondre Francois at the Elite 11 and OT Martez Ivey at The Opening. No Auburn targets are expected to commit at these camps. Recruiting at Auburn has gotten a bit quiet in the past week or so, but that's to be expected with the majority of the coaches taking well deserved vacations.
Michael Bird discusses how the Iron Bowl is becoming College Football's Perfect Rivalry.
Our friends over at For Whom The Cowbell Tolls are compiling blog poll rankings on position strength among the SEC. These should be posted every Sunday. This week's is discussing the Defensive Lines. I am not as well versed in other SEC teams' position strength, but I took a shot at this week's and I'll have a post on that in the very near future.
College and Magnolia:
New contributor Dr Z wrote a touching tribute to Philip Lutzenkirchen. We'll have an introductory post from him tomorrow along with introducing some other new contributors this week.
Speaking of, Bobby Barkley introduced himself to the readers of College and Magnolia.
