Lunchtime links: Smith follows in dad's footsteps

Posted by ESPN.com's Chris Low

A few SEC links for your lunch hour consumption:

  • Challenged by Lane Kiffin and the new Tennessee staff, senior center Josh McNeil has finally bought into the program.

  • There's another twist in the legal saga of Ole Miss freshman Tig Barksdale. The woman who accused him of stealing her car was convicted of false reporting of a crime.

  • It looks like Vanderbilt will have its own version of the Wildcat package this season. The Commodores used it several times during Thursday's scrimmage, and a couple of the freshman running backs made big plays.

  • LSU coach Les Miles is considering closing his practices completely to the media because of all the injury information that's getting out.
