A sort of normalcy returned to the conference this week. I feel as strongly about number fourteen as I do about number one. Progress of a sorts, I guess.
- Alabama. Nick Saban doesn’t know if he’s been “this disappointed after winning a game, maybe ever.” Coach, please.
- Texas A&M. Flat out crushed its cupcake game. Nothing else to see here, move on.
- Tennessee. Started out slow, but took out an opponent that couldn’t get out of its own way for the rest of the game. Which is what a good team is supposed to do, right?
- Florida. Man, the pleasures of an early light schedule.
- Arkansas. Enjoyed a nice win over a ranked team. Let’s see if this is the year the Hogs fulfill their early promise.
- Ole Miss. Cruised against an FCS opponent in a yawner of a game.
- Georgia. If you’re into hot takes, the Dawgs are giving you a severe case of whiplash.
- LSU. Sayonara, Brandon Harris.
- Mississippi State. The Bulldogs may have found themselves a quarterback, too.
- Auburn. When in doubt, play a team with a bunch of kids who went to the hospital during the week prior to the game.
- Missouri. I know it was against Eastern Michigan, but when you consider that the Tigers only broke thirty points once last season, scoring 61 looks like a step up for their offense.
- Vanderbilt. Is Ralph Webb the SEC’s best player on a shitty team? (That was a rhetorical question.)
- South Carolina. Boom, you lost by thirteen points to a team that couldn’t get past South Alabama. The only reason the ‘Cocks aren’t any lower is because…
- Kentucky. In a conference full of stupid coaching contract provisions, is there any one stupider than Mark Stoops’ $12 million buyout?
