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.”

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 [...]

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 [...]

The only word we had to say for this news when we saw it was: "Wow". Today Georgia suspended its best player and Heisman hopeful running back Todd Gurley indefinitely for an "alleged violation of NCAA rules".
According to Andy Staples at Sports Illustrated - who cites Georgia's compliance department, "Gurley was paid $400 to sign 80 items in Athens last spring", and there is photo evidence of Gurley doing the deed.
"I'm obviously very disappointed," said UGA head football coach Mark Richt. "The important thing for our team is to turn all our attention toward preparation for Missouri."
Allegedly Read more [...]

There is a smell around Tiger Stadium, and despite what Katy Perry says, it’s not corndogs and it’s certainly not bourbon. It feels – and smells – like a funeral.
That shouldn’t be surprising, because Death Valley has prided itself on being the place where opposition teams’ – and their fans’ hopes go to die. Now, the fanbase- complete with a multi-million dollar new addition the stadium – are feeling the stench of the death upon them as a program, punch-drunk by successive monster losses, falls to its knees like a heavyweight boxer lit up by consecutive Mike Tyson punches.
At Read more [...]

Wow. What a week for Ole Miss and Mississippi State. Ole Miss shows up at The Grove with the College Gameday crew wearing bow ties and looking pretty great, and Katy Perry makes an ass of herself on camera, and Ole Miss goes on to beat Alabama. Before that Mississippi State had beaten the living daylights out of Texas A&M, and looked worth the victory. Auburn beats the corndog out of LSU, while Florida and Tennessee plays the worst game in the History of Man. It ends 10-9 to Florida. Georgia throttles Vanderbilt, as predicted. Oh, and Kentucky scores a massive upset, beating South Carolina. Read more [...]
