In shocking news, this weekend news emerged that yet another UGA player had been arrested - the seventh this off-season. This time it was reserve lineback Davin Bellamy for DUI and speeding in Athens. According to the Athens Banner-Herald, Bellamy was "clocked going 52 in a 35 mph zone heading east on College Station Road in Athens at 2:58 a.m when his 2001 Volvo was pulled over in the Kroger parking lot." And when police smelt booze on his breath, he failed the sobriety test and police noted that he had "red, watery eyes". He refused to take a blood-alcohol test to determine his BAC, Read more [...]
With a SEC losing streak that stands at 16, it's difficult not to feel sorry for Kentucky Football fans. While their basketball players are playing like gods and pulling off last-minute victories, Kentucky football players simply find ways to lose. Sometimes heartbreakingly. Will 2014 be any different for Mark Stoops and his team?  LAST SEASON The Wildcats finished 2-10 (0-8 SEC), including losses to Western Kentucky and hated Louisville. Victories included (wait for it) Miami (Ohio) and (drumroll) Alabama State. The closest losses were by a touchdown to South Carolina and by 6 to Mississippi Read more [...]
Bret Bielema's press conference should have just said "I'm just sick of losing, and I'll turn this ship around", and stopped there, but it didn't. Instead, he told the world how he was irritated about fast-paced offenses and how they might endanger players' safety, and all we here at SEC Football Blog could think was: "Is he that scared of the way the way it's all changing?". Anyway, will good things happen in 2014 for the Razorbacks and their suffering support base? LAST SEASON Bret Bielema's first season for Arkansas was probably one he'd like to forget. The Hogs went winless in the SEC, Read more [...]

SEC Preview 2014: New coach, New Vanderbilt?

There's a new era at Vanderbilt. Derek Mason's replaced James Franklin as the new head coach, and he arrived at the SEC Media Days looking AWESOME in a bow tie (he won the best-dressed contest by some mile). But can Mason's awesomeness translate into a good Vanderbilt team in 2014?  LAST SEASON Vanderbilt finished with a 9-4 (4-4 SEC) record, which includes wins over Georgia, Florida and Tennessee. They also managed to lose one of the games of the season on Opening Day against Ole Miss (by damn that was a good game!). OFF-SEASON After all the showmanship of head coach James Franklin, Read more [...]

2014 SEC Preview: Ole Miss, by damn?

Ole Miss has always been a pretty interesting school. It's got one of the best tailgates in College Football (although opposing fans insist The Grove's like a cocktail party you're not invited to). It's got 'The Blind Side'. It's got previous history we don't want to go into. And right now, it's got energy with head coach Hugh Freeze recruiting like a God. But don't get us wrong - if Freeze loses two straight to Dan Mullen and Mississippi State, he won't be popular in Oxford... LAST SEASON The end-of-season, 2-overtime loss to Mississippi State stands out as probably the worst loss of Ole Read more [...]
Let's be honest: It hasn't been the greatest few years at Tennessee. The fans on 'Rocky Top' haven't had a winning record since 2009, and one double-digit win season in seven years. In other words, UT fans have spent a lot of time finding game tailgates as a chance to catch up and hate life together. Neyland's a pretty easy ticket now. Butch Jones coming in last year, though, has threatened to turn things around. Tennessee was perhaps the best 5-7 team in college football, and this year, recruiting's going well and smiles might just be returning again. LAST SEASON Tennessee had a winning Read more [...]
Everyone seems to be pretty confident in Starkville right now. It must happen when your team expands its stadium, wins their bowl game by 37 (losing me money in the process) and beats Ole Miss in The Egg Bowl. Anyway, Dan Mullen's chest was very puffed when he walked into SEC Media Days. We're glad he didn't come in wearing a visor. Only Steve Spurrier looks cool in one of those. LAST SEASON Is the fact that people are referring to Mississippi State as some sort of SEC dark horse because the Bulldogs beat their biggest rival? Or because they finish the season on a three-game winning streak? Read more [...]

Right Richt: Jonathan Taylor booted by Georgia

You know what? We're not actually being sarcastic when we say "Right Richt", because any guy who strangles or strikes his girlfriend or any female (as it seems sophomore D-Lineman Jonathan Taylor did in the late hours of Monday night) should be booted from a football team and if we're honest, should not be allowed to transfer, unless it's to jail. Well, after this second run-in with the law in one off-season, the 6-4, 340lb  Taylor was dismissed by the Georgia Bulldogs today. He was released from jail at 11.45am and was packing up his stuff by 1.30pm today. Mark Richt obviously wasn't screwing Read more [...]
Florida head coach Will Muschamp knows he's on the hot seat. Everyone knows he's on the hot seat. He's one terrible season from getting his ass booted out of The Swamp, and we all know it. You can blame a lot of things for an awful 2013. You can blame the mound of injuries. His bad offensive co-ordinator. A difficult schedule. Or just simple blame Muschamp, as a lot of people have done.  Anyway, we look ahead to 2014, for what a lot of Gators fans hope will not be a repeat of 2013. If it is, then The Swamp will be less full of Gators than full of wide, open spaces.... LAST SEASON Before Read more [...]
Stop if you've heard this before: LSU was ravaged by NFL Draft in 2013, and was ravaged by the NFL Draft in 2014. Les Miles lost NINE players for the 2013 season to the NFL Draft, and lost a further NINE to the 2014 Draft. And there were others who left for the NFL Draft and didn't find a suitor because they had such an overrated and crappy 2013 (we see you, Anthony 'The Freak' Johnson!). Anyway, Les Miles has had to reload yet again. So what's going to happen in 2014? Probably something crazy. LAST SEASON With your head coach being bats*** crazy (remember, this was a guy who let his TEAM Read more [...]
