Remember when Tennessee-Florida was THE game in the first half of the season? Did they edit an ending from 20 years ago onto Saturday’s snorefest?
If Gus Malzahn’s tenure at Auburn were a game of Combat on the old Atari 2600, the score just started flashing.
Did you remember that Missouri won the SEC East two years in a row? Seems like a really, really long time ago now, doesn’t it? (It was 2013 and 2014.)
Well, we’re not even to October and Ed Orgeron has already used his mulligan. It’s not necessarily embarrassing to lose to Mississippi State, but to be so listless and lose by 4+ TDs? Shameful. Had a look at the rest of LSU’s schedule? He better right this ship quickly, or .500 may be too much to hope for. Does a 5-7 or 4-8 Coach O get a second year?
We still don’t really know how impressive Georgia’s win in South Bend was. Now State’s upcoming visit to the hedges looks like the most intriguing game of the weekend.
Did you see Vanderbilt beat K-State? Maybe the East is anyone’s this year. (Well, except Missouri’s.)
The hole in Alabama’s defense is not broad, but it’s deep. Pruitt and Saban are clearly trying to put some weight on the resumés of a lot of different guys ahead of conference play, and on Saturday it showed. Nevertheless, so far it’s hard to see anyone clearly challenging Alabama’s SEC dominance. Whichever Bulldogs are victorious this weekend may have the best shot.
