The SEC has made it clear that it’s very concerned about player safety…depending upon who you are.
The decision by the SEC office to not suspend Quinton Dial for his hit on Aaron Murray in the SEC championship once again emphasizes that the conference office is all about sending a message and concern for player safety….as long as said player is not on a team playing for a national title.
It was bad enough two years ago when Auburn’s straight up thug defensive end was allowed to, multiple times throughout the season, deliberately try to injure QBs and the league office did NOTHING.
So it should come as absolutely no surprise that it once again chooses to protect teams playing for a national title instead of being advocates for player safety.
Personally, I would not blame Aaron Murray for wanting to play in the NFL, where the safety of quarterbacks on all team is taken seriously.
