Quarterback Cotton talking transfer | The Clarion-Ledger
Yesterday's great scuttlebutt as covered by Brandt:

UM coach Houston Nutt confirmed the redshirt freshman was telling teammates that he planned on transferring after the summer semester. But as of Thursday night, he hoped to convince the quarterback to stay on campus. "Obviously, we think he can be a part of our offense this fall," Nutt said. "It's not over yet. We'd like him to stay with us." Cotton, who was one of the most prized prospects in the 2009 recruiting class, has battled a sore throwing shoulder since last spring, when a small tear in his shoulder was revealed.

I just don't get it and, maybe, neither does Ray Cotton. You're a freshman, Ray. You can't expect that much SEC playing time. You just can't. His parents are also apparently really urging to stay so, when that's considered, I'd wager he's not leaving.

SEC Media Predictions Are In |
This is odd. Ole Miss is picked to finish last in the SEC West while State is picked to finish fifth. Ole Miss does, however, have three votes to win the SEC West and, get this, two votes to win the SEC Championship! State, on the other hand, has zero of either. How?! Whose votes are those?

My guess, State and Arkansas reporters. Buildin' up those expectations so Old Piss can fall, huh? How Machiavellian of them.
