Injuries force SEC teams to alter quarterback plans This was supposed to be the year that the Southeastern Conference showcased its wealth of experienced quarterbacks up and down the league. Plans have changed for a number of schools. Injuries have wreaked havoc around the conference, forcing coaches to rely on newcomers. South Carolina lost senior starter Jake Bentley to a foot injury during the opening week of the season. Kentucky's Terry Wilson and Mississippi State's Tommy Stevens were knocked out of games last week. Their replacements included two true freshmen and a transfer.

The headline for the coverage of South Carolina’s 34-14 loss at Missouri was “Hilinski’s Hope Sinks.” That was in reference to South Carolina freshman QB Ryan Hilinski.

“Hilinski’s Hope” is also the name of the nonprofit organization the QB’s family started after his brother Tyler, a Washington State quarterback, took his own life after the 2017 season.

Tagovailoa has career day in No. 2 Alabama's 47-23 victory

Tagovailoa has career day in No. 2 Alabama's 47-23 victory COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Tua Tagovailoa threw for a career-high 444 yards and tied his personal best with five touchdowns to help No. 2 Alabama open Southeastern Conference play with a 47-23 victory over South Carolina on Saturday. Coach Nick Saban improved to 12-1 at Alabama in SEC openers and wiped away some bad memories of his last visit to Williams-Brice Stadium nine years ago. Tagovailoa and his receivers quickly got the Crimson Tide (3-0, 1-0) rolling with first-quarter TD passes of 24 yards to Najee Harris and 81 yards to Henry Ruggs III. Whenever the Gamecocks (1-2, 0-1) drew within range, Tagovailoa came right back to restore Alabama's edge.

The San Jose Mercury News apologized for what it called an “ insensitive ” headline on its story about Simone Manuel winning an Olympic gold medal in swimming on Thursday. The California newspaper reported both milestones online with one headline : “Phelps shares historic night with African-American.”

“I apologize for being insensitive . The woman in that car got out without injury. We should not have been in the picture.” The publication printed a photo of the men on its front page with the damning headline "Bag Men." They later sued for libel, invasion of privacy and emotional distress.

Ryan Hilinski became starter after Jake Bentley’s injury

Hilinski entered the season as the backup to four-year starter Jake Bentley. But Bentley suffered a season-ending injury in the Gamecocks’ Week 1 loss to North Carolina and Hilinski took over as the team’s starter.

Hilinski’s brother Tyler played at Washington State in 2016 and 2017 and played in eight games as a sophomore before it looked like he would take over as the team’s starter in 2018.

After he was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in January 2018, his parents Kym and Mark started the “Hilinski’s Hope” nonprofit to help spread awareness and break the stigma around mental health issues for college athletes.

When Ryan enrolled at South Carolina ahead of the 2019 season, the Hilinski family moved to the state to be closer to him.
