Week 5 of the season came and went with these feelings about the SEC: The Swamp was titinus-causingly loud. And Florida is good. Or Ole Miss was overrated. Alabama playing at their best will be unbeatable. Or Georgia was overrated. Auburn fans toilet-papered Toomer's Corner out of relief. Les Miles has got to get his team's head together against lower opponents. Maty Mauk may have started his last game for Missouri. South Carolina is awful. Kentucky is overrated. Texas A&M is good. Mississippi State's run game is bad. Kyle Field is loud.Vanderbilt scored a nice upset win. Over MTSU. The Read more [...]
After a weekly state that saw Tennessee and Arkansas choke away leads, Ole Miss and LSU cough a lot against Vanderbilt and Syracuse respectively, and Auburn not manage to score a touchdown against Mississippi State, this week's back with a vengeance with a monster clash between National Championship Contenders Georgia and Alabama in Athens. So without further ado, here's ranking your SEC games for Week 5... No.13 Alabama at No.8 Georgia Alabama's record against Georgia is a good one: 37-25-4, with the Crimson Tide winning the last two, which included an incredible SEC Championship Game Read more [...]

Missouri suspends QB Mauk

Missouri has suspended its starting quarterback Maty Mauk for the South Carolina game for disciplinary reasons, the school has said. No-one quite knows what the disciplinary reasons were, but Missouri fans DO know that Mauk has struggled throughout this season, constantly making bad throws, completing just 51% of his throws for 654 yards, 6 TDs and 4 INTs. It was said during a Missouri podcast that Mauk could have thrown three interceptions in one drive had Kentucky's secondary been able to catch the ball. The pressure is now going to be on freshman QB Drew Lock to perform against the Gamecocks. Read more [...]

Live! The Quarterly SEC Awards (Or SECs)

  Is that Derrick Henry? Is that Nick Saban? Is that Lane Kiffin with Nick Saban's daughter? Is that Leonard Fournette, brushing off all the reporters as he goes? Is that Les Miles, who's stopped to say something that no-one understands? Yes folks, it's your quarterly SEC Football Blog Awards, given out to the players, teams and coaches who have made a difference - good or bad - in the first quarter of the season. And afterwards, we can all go to Chilli's with players from the University of Georgia and threaten people. (DRUMROLL PLEASE) THE GOOD AWARDS BEST PLAYER Leonard Read more [...]

How good is Ole Miss? Week 4 SEC rankings

Ole Miss was expected to smash Vanderbilt at home and didn't, instead grinding out an 11-point win over the Commodores and never totally looking in control. Yes, we know that they were coming off a monster win at Alabama, but that's hardly College Football Play-Off form. Ohio State, by the way, has been 'grinding' since it won at Virginia Tech - although it found some signs of life on Saturday. The fact is this: Ole Miss is still the toast of the SEC West, but we don't have a clue how good the SEC West actually is. Last year, it was so much easier.... Elsewhere, Arkansas choked against Texas Read more [...]
WE'RE IN WEEK 4? ALREADY?! In eight more weeks and a lot of bluster's time, this regular season will be over. God, I'm depressed already. Anyway, let's change that with memories of an awesome Week 3. We saw some amazing sights. This included Leonard Fournette throwing off Auburn defenders with the ease of an elephant discarding a human (And by the Heisman hype he's getting now, he might well be a god amongst men). We also balls bounce off Alabama special teams players, defenders, and wide receivers, and the bad bounces outnumbered the good ones. The Crimson Tide was upset in Tuscaloosa by Ole Read more [...]

Florida suspends key players

Florida has suspended quarterback Treon Harris and cornerback Jalen Tabor for the Tennessee game. Gators head coach Jim McElwain refused to go into details of the suspension. However, ESPN's Brett McMurphy said that they came about because Harris had failed a drug test and Tabor had refused to take a drug test, resulting in an automatic suspension. Harris had been battling QB Will Grier for the starting job in The Swamp. He's passed for 269 yards and 2 TDs in two games for Florida, and run for 55 yards. Grier played well in the 14-9 at Kentucky on Saturday night, and would probably have Read more [...]

South Carolina gives Nunez starting QB job

Things are bad at South Carolina - and Steve Spurrier's had it with his starting quarterback, Perry Orth. He's replaced him with true freshman Lorenzo Nunez, who actually looked like South Carolina's most dangerous option - outside of Pharoh Cooper - in the Gamecocks' 52-20 shellacking at Georgia on Saturday. Nunez will start against UCF. Nunez went 4-5 for 18 yards and 76 yards rushing against Georgia, while Orth was 6-17 for 66 yards and 1 INT. “I think it’s the first true freshman quarterback as a coach I’ve ever started, but that’s just where we are right now,” head coach Steve Read more [...]

Auburn benches QB Johnson

Starting QB Jeremy Johnson has been benched by head coach Gus Malzahn after three awful performances for the Tigers, culminating in a humiliation in Death Valley by LSU. Taking his place will be redshirt freshman Sean White, who came to The Plains as the eighth-best pro-style quarterback in the country, and 22nd overall player in Florida. Johnson went 43-72 for 473 yards, 5 TDs and 6 INTs -- and the interceptions number could have been double that. He's also been sacked five times. 6-0 White was the Elite 11 MVP during his senior season at high school, according to AL.com, and apparently Read more [...]

Fournette, Ole Miss rule: Week 4 SEC Rankings

We've got a couple of things to say about Week 4. Leonard Fournette, Leonard Fournette, Leonard Fournette. Gus Malzahn should have said in the press conference after Auburn was trainwrecked by the player: "He just ran us over". But he didn't. Fournette was so good, it became must-see TV. Unbelievable night in Bama. I am still quivering from thinking about that Ole Miss vs Alabama game in Tuscaloosa. This game was like being on the relationship rollercoaster, with more ins and outs than an episode of "Game Of Thrones" (speaking of acting: John Hamm, congrats on the Emmy for "Mad Men"). Georgia Read more [...]
