Merry Christmas!

We'll be taking Christmas Day off at the SEC blog and return later this week.

The bowl season for the SEC cranks up in less than a week, and we'll be previewing those games and will also be on site for several of them.

It's our sincere hope that you get to spend this joyous time of year with family, friends and loved ones, and as always, we appreciate your reading and interest in college football.

Have a very Merry Christmas!
