Posted by ESPN.com's Chris Low

We take a stroll around the SEC to see what others are writing and saying about the league:

  • Florida backup quarterback Cam Newton's legal problems are being cleared up, but he won't remain with the Gators, Florida Today's David Jones reports.

  • Columnist Kevin Scarbinsky of The Birmingham News writes that Nick Saban and Alabama will face something in 2009 the Crimson Tide didn't face to start last season -- lofty expectations.

  • South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier hopes some new blood on his offensive coaching staff will help revitalize the Gamecocks' offense, columnist Ron Morris of The State newspaper writes.

  • LSU coach Les Miles says the Tigers' difficulties in recent years against Tennessee's defense is what led him to John Chavis.
