Ooh, baby, it’s a wild world.

Tim Tucker notes this hasn’t been your typical SEC season.

Go figure. How weird is this? Both Vanderbilt and Mississippi — but neither Auburn nor Tennessee — are eligible for bowls.

Vandy and Ole Miss won their sixth games of the season Saturday to clinch bowl eligibility — Vandy for the first time since 1982 and Ole Miss for the first time since 2003.

Meanwhile, Auburn’s loss to Georgia means the Tigers won’t be eligible for a bowl unless they upset No. 1 Alabama Nov. 29. Auburn hasn’t missed out on a bowl since 1999, and Tennessee — with the second most bowl appearances in NCAA history (47) — will miss out for the second time in four years.

    I know of three of our most hated, heated, and historical rivals who would immediately make Coach Richt the highest paid coach in the country if he would give them the time of day – Auburn, Clemson, and Tennessee!

    Dr. Tom cuts through the noise for a sobering thought.
