As it's a time of gratitude, we'd like to point out a few things that our 14 teams' fans are grateful for.
And before that, we'd like to point out as a unit that we're grateful that ESPN has given us more money than GOD to rebuild our stadiums and our weight rooms and make us gods of recruiting. We are grateful for SEC Commissioner Mike Slive, and we're grateful - most of all - for SEC fans, who rock our stadiums, especially when it's a SEC vs SEC match-up. We're grateful for Hate Weeks, great tailgating on lawns, groves and rivers, and beautiful co-eds and cheerleaders. Read more [...]

Let's face the facts: It wasn't a great week for the SEC. It really wasn't. Ole Miss was hammered at Arkansas, Missouri continued their run for the SEC West with at Neyland, and Mississippi State continued to prove the crappiness of the 2014 Vanderbilt team by a victory by a half-century. Oh, and elsewhere, we can be proud we gave those FCS teams a damn good kicking, can't we?
Anyway, this week's Rivalry Week. Or Hate Week. The eyes are focussed on rivals. Auburn and Alabama. Ole Miss and Mississippi State. Florida and Florida State. Georgia and Georgia Tech. Clemson and South Carolina. Tennessee Read more [...]

This week's SEC games weren't a lot to talk about. While the likes of Alabama, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida were blowing out FCS opposition (and Auburn was struggling for a lot of its game with Samford), Ole Miss travelled to Arkansas was absolutely shelled by the Razorbacks. Speaking of shelling, Mississippi State dropped 50 on Vanderbilt, while Missouri moved one game closer to the SEC Championship Game with a win over Tennessee.
Anyway, here's our top-to-bottom SEC Power Rankings, folks.
A hard-fought game against Western Carolina at the start, then the Crimson Tide Read more [...]

It's Week 13 in the SEC, and to say the least, it's a really, really dry slate. We know this because the big games of the week of the week are Missouri's visit to Tennessee and Ole Miss' visit to Arkansas. The rest is pretty dry.
So here we go with our Week 13 SEC Preview. I promise you, the games are incredible.
MISSOURI AT TENNESSEE
This clash of the unranked doesn't mean that this game - at night at Neyland Stadium - isn't important to Missouri - and to Georgia. If Missouri loses one of its upcoming games against Tennessee and Arkansas, it loses its stronghold on the SEC East, letting Read more [...]

Unsurprisingly, Alabama head coach Nick Saban is the top-ranked coach in college football, USA Today has reported. Despite a season where he didn't win his bowl game and lost to Auburn, Saban - who's Crimson Tide team is now the top-ranked team in the nation - still earned $7.1m in total pay in 2013 - including a base salary of $6.9m.
Texas A&M's Kevin Sumlin was the second-most paid in the SEC and the fourth-best coach in college football, pulling in $5m in base salary, and $5.006m total.
LSU's Les Miles earned $4.3m ($4.369m total), and South Carolina's Steve Spurrier earned $4m ($4.016m Read more [...]

Well, Alabama's now the best team in the SEC again after the Crimson Tide beat Mississippi State, while Georgia suffered a phyrric victory while pummelling Auburn - they lost Todd Gurley for the season with a torn ACL (and probably the rest of his career). Meanwhile, we're proud to say Arkansas fans have their first win of the season after shutting out LSU, while Tennessee's on a roll after dismantling a once-again-disappointing Kentucky team. Oh, and there that small game in The Swamp, too...
Anyway, here are your post-Week 12 SEC Power Rankings.
Crimson Tide still aren't much Read more [...]

Will Muschamp has been fired as the head coach of Florida, the school announced on Sunday.
After a terrible 2013, it was always going to be difficult for Will Muschamp in 2014. After getting blown out at home to Missouri, it looked as though Muschamp might be fired a few weeks ago. However, a shocking win over Georgia and a win over Vanderbilt seemed to buy the Gator boss sometime....until everything unravelled at home to South Carolina on Saturday, when the Gators lost 23-20 in overtime in a game they should have won.
Although he will stay at The Swamp for the last two games of the season, Read more [...]

Texas A&M pulled off one of the stunners of the SEC season when they beat Auburn at Jordan-Hare on Saturday. Then LSU looked like it would pull a monster upset in Death Valley by beating Alabama....and then choked. And Georgia looked as though it would struggle at Kentucky BEFORE the game, but destroyed the Wildcats with a terrific performance.
As it's the SEC, we're going to do this in terms of SEC commentator calls...... We're throwing in some Larry Munson (RIP) and some dumbass Gary Danielson stuff too.
So here we go:
1) MISSISSIPPI STATE

Missouri and West Virginia have said that they will play a home-and-home series in 2016 and 2019.
Mizzou will travel to Morgantown in 2016, and the Mountaineers will come to Columbia in 2019.
This ties into the SEC’s requirements for the conference’s schools to play a team from the Big Ten, the Big XII, ACC, or Pac-12 every season from 2016, in an effort to boost its own credentials with the College Football Play-Off Committee.
