In case you missed them, here are some teachable moments from the last seven days:

▪ The Southeastern Conference’s reputation may be bigger than its stature.

▪ It’s fair to say Daniel Kniffin is no Jake Browning, but fairer to say Sacramento State is no Washington.

▪ Novak Djokovic likely has a recurring role in Roger Federer’s nightmares.

▪ The Bengals’ Adam Jones should keep working on his image.
