Introduction

Be sure and connect with me on Twitter @JonSDS

I enjoy SEC Football and started Saturday Down South in July of 2010 with Kevin Duffey and Drew Roberts to discuss football in the best conference in America, more out of frustration from the lack of quality coverage. Since then, SDS has grown to over 1 million visitors a month, and we're pumped about the big future ahead.

I write most of the content for SDS, in addition to being the main editor, and I handle all the media representation on Radio or TV. I handle roughly 15-20 radio interviews per week to discuss SEC football in season.

Our social media branding on SDS is second to none, and our distribution model is tops in college football, as we have over 1 million fans on facebook among our various pages. We have over 400,000 in our SEC page and our largest team pages are 200,000 Alabama fans and 160,000 Georgia fans. On Twitter, we have over 500,000 followers on our various accounts and like facebook, we have different feeds for each team.

Kevin, Drew and myself also run a couple of other football websites that are still in the early stages of development, and they are DirectSnap and Coaching Roots.  Feel free to shoot me a message and introduce yourself.

Opinions & Predictions  - 
 
CBS Sports' Jerry Palm projected 11 #SEC  teams to go bowling in 2013.

BCS National Championship Game: Alabama vs. Ohio State
Sugar Bowl: Texas A&M vs. Clemson
Capital One Bowl: Florida vs. Michigan
Outback Bowl: Georgia vs. Wisconsin
Cotton Bowl: LSU vs. Oklahoma
BBVA Compass Bowl: Vanderbilt vs. South Florida
Gator Bowl: Ole Miss vs. Michigan State
Chick-fil-A Bowl: South Carolina vs. Virginia Tech
Liberty Bowl: Mississippi State vs. Tulsa
Independence Bowl: Missouri vs. Virginia
Music City Bowl: Arkansas vs. Georgia Tech

The only team I would add would be Auburn. I think Gus Malzahn wins six this year and takes the Tigers to a bowl game. 

Any other teams you would consider? Tennessee?

I would like to refer pre-season selections to last year's pre-season #1 USC.

Do you think these seven players should have stayed in school one more year?

Besides Brad Wing, name another player who wouldn't have benefited from another year of development.

To add to that, I can name a few that got drafted that should've stayed in school (from a skills standpoint)... Sam Montgomery and Tharold Simon both would've benefited from another year...

Recruiting  - 
 
New Tennessee commit Jalen Hurd could be the cornerstone to Butch Jones' future success at Tennessee.

This kid is a boss at 6-3, 225-pounds. Check out that highlight tape.

1.  It's a long time to Signing Day, he will face immense pressure I'm sure.
2.  This is the SEC.  Butch needs to understand its the trenches that make the difference.  Playmakers are great, but without the blockers they are just dodging guys bigger than them all day.
3.I wouldn't mind seeing Tennesee escape from this pit they have fallen into.  Slowly, but gradually, heh.

Players  - 
 
TJ Yeldon or Todd Gurley? You can't go wrong with either running back, but if you were forced to pick between the two, who would you take?

Here's who I would take:

What did everyone think about Florida OL Tim Davis calling Nick Saban 'the devil himself' in an effort to pump up his own coach, Will Muschamp?

I just don't see what the big deal is. Coaches are paid to win games and rally fan bases. 

Maybe I just like a little controversy...

It took me a few years to warm up to him when he came to Carolina after hating him for so many years. Now he's my boy!
