SEC Notebook: Trouble for LSU’s Jefferson & Big XII interested in Arkansas

There is breaking news out of Baton Rouge this morning. Multiple media outlets are now reporting that Baton Rouge police have issued an arrest warrant for LSU’s quarterback Jordan Jefferson. The charge is battery.

ESPN reported the news via twitter: “BREAKING Baton Rouge Police Dept. has secured arrest warrants for LSU QB Jordan Jefferson & LB Joshua Johns for felony 2nd degree battery.”

This LSU situation is of vital importance to the SEC West race.

Will the Big XII raid the SEC?

The New York Times reported the Big XII’s wish list if Texas A&M bolts out of Texas’ shadow and into the SEC. Near the top of the wish list was Arkansas.

According to Pete Thamel’s report, “Its wish list, in order of preference, is Notre Dame, Arkansas and Brigham Young, according to a person with firsthand knowledge of the Big 12’s discussions.”

Arkansas would be an interesting choice for the Big XII since the Razorbacks bolted from the SWC to help expand the SEC to its present 12-team composition. It was the addition of Arkansas and South Carolina that allowed the SEC to launch its annual championship game.

Would Arkansas now consider a move back into the shadow of Texas—a shadow the Aggies are so interested in escaping?

Be careful with the tweets
The ClarionLedger.com reported MSU guard D.J. Gardner was “booted from the team after profane tweets.” Apparently, Bulldog coach Rick Stansbury did not like reading this tweet from the basketball player: “These b***es tried to f**k me over.. That’s y I red shirted .. But I wish my homies a great as* season.. I don’t even know y I’m still here.”
