If anyone knows about transferring into the SEC, it’s Jarrett Stidham. The Auburn quarterback had previous stops at Baylor and McLennan Community College in Waco, Texas.
Joe Burrow is coming from Ohio State to LSU, but both wound up at the Manning Passing Academy last week in Thibodaux, La. There, Stidham had some advice for the new kid on the SEC block.
“I don’t know how it was up north, but people down south love their football. That’s No. 1,” Stidham told AL.com’s Matt Zenitz. “No. 2, the SEC, it’s a lot of fun. It’s a grind. Every single week, you’ve got to be on your game. There’s no cupcake teams in our league. You’re going to get somebody’s best every single week, so you’ve got to be physically and mentally prepared for those types of games and situations.”
