It's unlikely that the fans in Death Valley are going to care that this is not a vintage week for SEC - or indeed college football fans.  In the SEC, College Gameday's going to be a visitor to Baton Rouge for the first time since THAT LSU vs Alabama game in 2012 (we were also there), where LSU will take on No.3-ranked Ole Miss. South Carolina takes on Auburn to try for its first de-feathering of War Eagle since 1933 (yeah, you read that right!), and Alabama goes to Tennessee, which will only be interesting if you're either an Alabama fan or you loathe Lane Kiffin (OK, so this might be ratings-beater!).

When will Georgia get Todd Gurley back?

Every Georgia fan on Twitter seemed to erupt in celebration with the news that Georgia had applied (well, at least they had at the time of writing since it was 4 hours ago) to the NCAA to get Todd Gurley out of playing purgatory and restated to the team. According to a release from Georgia, the University said that it "plans to file the necessary paperwork with the NCAA later today." Seth Emerson, a writer from the Macon Telegraph and Columbus Ledger-Enquirer wrote that the "The NCAA and UGA have been working together on Gurley's situation, so UGA's request seems almost assured of being approved." There Read more [...]
Both Alabama and Georgia made statements on Saturday. Alabama by shutting down Texas A&M's offense, Georgia by going to Arkansas and picking up the Win That No-One-But-Vegas-Who-Had-Them-Favored expected, striking a monster blow for SEC East. The dumpster fire in Florida continued as they lost 42-12 to Missouri at home on Homecoming Night, while Ole Miss shut down Tennessee at home. Anyway, here are your SEC rankings: 1) MISSISSIPPI STATE It's rare for us to keep a team at No.1 despite only playing Bye Week, but there we go. We saw Ole Miss' performance, and while we love their defense, Read more [...]

LSU and Texas schedule each other for home-and-home

Praise The Lord of beautiful co-eds in burnt orange, white shorts and cowboy boots! Praise The Lord of purple, bourbon, and great food! Praise Him! Praise Him indeed! OK, now we've stopped saying praise, we can open our eyes and say that according to reports, LSU and Texas have schedule a home-and-home starting 2019. Sure, that's 5 full seasons away (giving both sides good time to cancel), but right now, we're pretty excited. The games will be played in Austin on September 7th 2019, and in Baton Rouge in 2020. This is going to be a very, very expensive ticket, with Texas fans wanting to party Read more [...]
"If you ask the church then I am no believer Spend Sundays asleep I'm just another dreamer Still tryna find my home sweet home, oh I, oh I, oh I And I guess I ain’t too good for money neither" -- Rudimental (Feat. Emeil Sande) If the church is the fans of Alabama, then a lot of people left the bandwagon after an inept victory at Arkansas. And Arkansas' still dreaming of finding a win - and Fayetteville may have been noisy on Saturday night, but they couldn't find the victory. Elsewhere, Mississippi State have their home sweet home after beating Auburn in One Of The Ugliest Games You'll Read more [...]
Something stinks, and it's called the SEC's 2015 non-conference schedule. Listen, we know that you in South Carolina will scream: "Hell, well at least WE'RE scheduling Clemson!" and those in Florida will say: "Screw You! We're playing FSU!" and you would be right. I would ask you to imagine what would happen if both schools decided NOT to play that schedule. South Carolina, for example, would burn, with both ADs crucified on Hilton Head Island. In Florida, the feeling would probably be the same, since the two sides have been playing since 1958. And maybe Georgia fans will say: "Yeah! And we Read more [...]
Mike Slive has announced that he is to step down as SEC Commissioner at end-July 2015, citing a reoccurring of his prostate cancer. “I have been blessed in more ways than I can count and I will have as much passion for this job on my last day as I did on my first,” said Slive.  “I consider my health situation a temporary detour in a remarkable road that has allowed me to meet amazing people, experience incredible events and celebrate historic victories.  I will relish my final year in this position and look forward to being the biggest fan of the SEC for many years to come.” The Read more [...]

Mississippi Rolls: Week 8 SEC round-up

Another week, another incredible weekend for the State of Mississippi. Who would have thought that suddenly The Magnolia State would become the Disneyland of football? Oh, and our ears are still ringin'.... 1.   Mississippi State   Despite not having their best day offensively what with all their turnover problems, MSU still came through to beat Auburn amid one of the loudest stadiums ever witnessed. It was awesome to see how pissed off the College Gameday guys were getting with all that clanging. We put Mississippi State up top because they’ve beaten three straight ranked teams- even Read more [...]

Florida restates Treon Harris

The Florida Gators have reinstated freshman quarterback Treon Harris after his accuser withdrew her complaint, ESPN has reported. Although Harris won't be playing the LSU game, he is free to return to the team. Will Muschamp, Florida's coach said: "We have been notified that the University and legal process is complete... This has been a learning experience for everyone involved. Treon has been honest with me throughout the process and is looking forward to rejoining his teammates." ESPN added: "Harris' attorneys said Thursday that the accuser was "the sexual aggressor with not one, but Read more [...]
On a weekend that the No.2 team in the nation go and play the No. 3 team, and the team which beat Alabama goes down to a cauldron of noise to play in butt-hurt Texas, it's funny how one incident can steal a spotlight for another team completely. And that incident and spotlight was stolen by Georgia, which has suspended their Heisman Trophy candidate/frontrunner indefinitely because he was photographed signing autographs (apparently he accepted $400 to do it in the spring). It's strange, because there's also spotlight on Florida, which suspended QB Treon Harris while it investigates an accusation Read more [...]
