Adams: SEC wars continue to flare over coaches, recruits

I was wrong about SEC football. I thought it couldn’t get any more competitive.

Never mind Alabama vs. Florida for the SEC championship. January has been more competitive than December in SEC football.
What is supposed to be the off-season has never been more “on.” It started with the hiring and firing of coaches and assistant coaches. It has continued with one of the most competitive recruiting season in the history of a conference famous for fierce recruiting battles.
And Tennessee is right in the middle of it.

So what if the Vols finished 5-7 last season. New coach Lane Kiffin has 12-0 confidence and the bankroll to back it up. If he can’t sell you, he can buy you.
