Last year the Southeastern Conference was peppered with veteran quarterbacks returning.
There was Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel, national champion AJ McCarron, Georgia's Aaron Murray, Missouri's James Franklin, Ole Miss' Bo Wallace and Mississippi State's Tyler Russell among others.
This year there are just a few quarterbacks returning who have experience. Auburn returns Nick Marshall, who burst onto the scene last year.
Marshall had to find himself early in the season, but finished the year nicely, leading the Tigers to a SEC Championship and an appearance in the BCS National Championship.
"In the past, it's usually taken me three or four games to really get a good feel for how he reacts to success, adversity, pressure, really all the different situations that come across in a game," Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn said of getting used to a new quarterback at last week's SEC media days. "I think as you're building your strengths around him, you find out a lot about your team."
