3:52 p.m. ET Thursday. #SECKickoff12 has ended. Tuesday began with a rock star in Commissioner Mike Slive; Thursday ended with a rock star in Alabama head coach Nick Saban.
Nothing earth-shattering took place Thursday, although we chuckled as Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze said he'd be sure and circle the date Ole Miss faced South Carolina in 2013. Tuesday South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier made a point of saying how he would rather play Ole Miss than LSU; well, the two teams will get their chance in 2013.
Here are a few more features we posted on WildcatChat and the KSR football forum. This isn't everything, but it should give you a taste. Be sure and stop by the KSR Football Forum and WildcatChat Premium for our complete coverage.

11:18 a.m. ET Thursday. Wow, so much has occurred in the last 24 hours. Larry Warford of Kentucky was named 2nd team All-SEC offensive lineman, receiving the 5th most votes. The top four made first-team All-SEC, so he was very close.
Kentucky was chosen by the 222 members of the SEC to finish dead last in the SEC East. Predicted order of finish:
2. South Carolina
5. Texas A&M
6. Miss. State
7. Ole Miss
Surprisingly, Ole Miss received one vote to win the SEC (hey to Mrs. Freeze!).
