Brent Beaird, analyst for First Coast News, joined Host of "Southern Fried Sports" Travis Reier Wednesday morning from Jacksonville, Florida, for his weekly SEC discussion.

This week, the duo discussed both the NCAA and NIT Tournaments, the future of college football rivalries, and some Alabama football.

"There's a lot of excitement here as you can imagine," Beaird told Reier. "With LSU and big blue nation, it's still a pretty good line-up starting tomorrow."

"I can tell you this," Beaird told Reier. "These athletic directors are starting to listen to these fans, because these fans aren't happy for writing that big check. Especially, when they don't have anybody that they really want to go and see during the season."
