Vanderbilt 2015 Preview: Will the disaster continue?

2014 was a disaster for Vanderbilt head coach Derek Mason in his first year. There's no other way to look at it. The three victories in the season included a win by 3 over UMass, a win by 1 over Charleston Southern, and 14 over Old Dominion. They were played off the field in virtually every SEC game they played (apart from Tennessee when they lost by 7), going 0-8 and immediately putting Mason on the hot seat. THE OFF-SEASON Derek Mason went on the rampage, firing OC Karl Correll, DC David Kotulski, and WR coach Marc Lubick. His new OC is former Wisconsin OC Andy Ludwig, while he's appointed Read more [...]

Missouri 2015 Preview: QB Controversy Brewing?

We hadn't heard of Drew Lock before we listened to the excellent Missouri-dedicated podcast 'Mizzodcast', but everything's going to be pretty interesting under center if he continues his off-season challenge to QB Maty Mauk. Last season Missouri - in another stunning season - won the SEC East and was then brutalized in the SEC Championship Game by Alabama. OFF-SEASON The biggest story was very nearly a tragic one. Defensive lineman Harold Brantley was caught in a car crash that seriously injured him. Thank God he's still alive. He's done for the season, but not for life. Aside from Read more [...]

Ranking and Predicting Saturday’s SEC games

Right, so it's Christmas Day on Thursday, with Steve Spurrier dressed up in a garnet and black Santa costume, ready to deliver us all presents. It's going to be a phenomenal day out, and we can't wait. The biggest pity? South Carolina - and North Carolina - screwed over their season ticket holders by having the game in Charlotte. We'll be stunned if the stadium's sold out. Anyway, here's our previews, in terms of importance. HINT: South Carolina vs North Carolina isn't No.1 on the list. 1) AUBURN VS LOUISVILLE Trying to work out what the best game of the day was between this one and Texas Read more [...]

Auburn 2015 Preview: Is this the Tigers’ year?

After starting the season 5-0, a lot of was expected of Auburn when they went to Mississippi State. After losing 38-23, it was obvious that something was missing from Gus Malzahn's team....a good defense. And for the rest of the season, the defense rotted, basically mailing it in against Georgia and Alabama. Of course, Ohio State will thank Auburn for exposing the Crimson Tide's weak secondary (they did the same thing a few weeks later), but this team was a real disappointment, culminating in a 34-31 loss to coach-less Wisconsin. THE OFF-SEASON Auburn made the biggest splash of the off-season Read more [...]

LSU names Harris as starter

LSU has named Brandon Harris as the starting quarterback of Saturday's game against McNeese State. Harris and Anthony Jennings battled over QB duties during the Spring. Harris was named starting QB in the 2014 season, and struggled, ending the season going 25-45 for 452 yards, 6 TDs and 2 INTs. He also rushed for 3 TDs and 159 yards. Although the numbers weren't terrible, Harris looked out of his depth against stronger opposition, and had to be replaced by Anthony Jennings as the season wore on. Jennings struggled too. BOTTOM LINE: It's still difficult to be confident about LSU's prospects Read more [...]

Mississippi State 2015 Preview: Dak Attack!

Last season was a stunning one for Mississippi State. They went to No.1 in the polls. They beat LSU on the road for the first time in their history. They had their second 10-win season in their history. Their QB, Dak Prescott, was a Heisman contender. OK, so underestimating the Bulldogs was our mistake, Starkville. OFF-SEASON Dak Prescott had an awful Spring Break when he was blindsided by some douchebag in Panama Beach. He didn't press assault charges, which is a shame. He should have done. Coaching-wise, Dan Mullen lost defensive co-ordinator Geoff Collins to Florida, and replied by Read more [...]

Georgia names starting QB

Georgia has named Greyson Lambert as its starting quarterback for the season opener against Louisiana-Monroe. Lambert, a graduate transfer from Virginia, threw for 1,632 yards for the Cavaliers, including 10 TDs and 11 INTs. He also completed 154 passes in 261 attempts. Lambert beat out Brice Ramsey and Faton Bauta. Georgia coach Mark Richt said: "“There may be other or others who get in the game. But right now the thing that I know that he’ll start the game. Very, very close competition. Still being contested in my mind. But at this point we felt it would be wise to name a starter Read more [...]
If we hear that Tennessee is back one more time, we will scream. Seriously. Could they be great this year? We will see. LAST YEAR There was an awful lot of hype that the Vols would beat Florida (when, let's face it, you couldn't have had a better opportunity) and cause Missouri a hell of a lot of problems. They failed both tests. They abused Alabama offensive co-ordinator (and their turncoat former coach) Lane Kiffin, and failed there too. Yes, we know they won four out of their last five including spanking Iowa in their bowl game...but look at the opposition. The only ranked team the Vols Read more [...]
With Jadeveon Clowney moving off to the NFL, the South Carolina Gamecocks had a poor 2014, finishing 7-5 and 3-5 in the SEC, which including a blow-out losses to Texas A&M and Clemson, and getting outclassed by Kentucky. They beat Georgia in a rainstorm and squeaked by Florida, but overall, this wasn't a great year for the Gamecocks. WE NOW KNOW THE QB Connor Mitch was named the quarterback of the South Carolina Gamecocks on Tuesday, much to the relief of many fans who we guess were beginning to question whether Steve Spurrier had decided to go for golf instead of a big decision. Anyway, Read more [...]
  You know you've built a dynasty when every year, people are talking about the Alabama Crimson Tide and mentioning the words "National Title". In fact, it's a disappointment when they DON'T get to the final game. And when they were outplayed by Ohio State in the College Football Play-Off semi-final and didn't get there, it was a disappointment, despite winning the SEC Title.  LAST SEASON As mentioned, Alabama lost the College Football Play-Off game to 'The' Ohio State University. They didn't just lose, they were wildly outschemed and outplayed, with the secondary bullied throughout Read more [...]
