Ellis Johnson Previews SEC Football 2018
As SEC Media Days gets further in the rearview mirror, fans and media turn their attention to upcoming fall practices and the first games of the season.
A man who is familiar with the anticipation of an upcoming season hopped on the Gary Harris Show late last week.
Ellis Johnson spent nearly four decades in the coaching profession with head coaching opportunities at The Citadel and Southern Miss along with numerous stops as a defensive coordinator at places like Alabama, Auburn, Mississippi State, Clemson and South Carolina.
Alabama's former defensive coordinator provided his outlook on the Southeastern Conference including his assessment of Alabama's quarterback position.
"When you have two kids like that, I don't know how you can be wrong or right. You can't be wrong because both of them are good enough to win every game on the schedule, and you can't be right because the one you don't pick is probably good enough to start for anybody else in the conference. It's a good dilemma to have. I know a lot other teams wished they had it." Johnson said.
After dissecting the profiles of Tagovailoa and Hurts as quarterbacks, the former SEC defensive coordinator looked at how Will Muschamp learned from his experiences as Florida's head coach to take advantage of his second chance at South Carolina, how Georgia can handle expectations coming off their near miss against Alabama and a rundown of the SEC West.
