Only one of this year’s fourteen media guides sports the head coach on the cover. Without looking, can you guess which school it is?
Also, Missouri deserves bonus points for its weirdly honest cover caption.

I’m guessing Butch.
I also guessed Butch. We were wrong.
Glad I didn’t guess before I cheated, wouldn’t have picked that. But, he may need the boost the most, lot of unhappy campers in that fan base with his act. Better deliver soon, the pressure is definitely going to grow big time if they don’t achieve this season.
I got the right state but wrong coach. I guess after this season he wanted to make sure everyone knew what he looked like.
Ditto – – I’m surprised, but, in retrospect, shouldn’t be.
He looks like he’s got gas and is trying to squeeze one out privately.
I’m struck by how pedestrian the majority of the cover designs are. Missouri, in particular, looks like it was designed by a high school kid. Probably a ninth grader at that. Apparently, none of those tens of millions of dollars pouring into SEC schools are being spent hiring graphic designers. Maybe three of these designs are compelling in any way. Just as many, if not more, are just awful. Most are boring and unoriginal.
On the surface, it is surprising for a strong journalism school, but given the reasons for their declining enrollment, they probably selected that one cover design that didn’t offend anybody.
Do they even own a copy of Photoshop in MiZzzou?
They rented out the media office to a Boy Scout troop’s summer camp. That was the best they could do before they had to clear out.
Why should this surprise anyone considering the first characteristic listed of a cult is: ‘The group displays excessively zealous and unquestioning commitment to its leader’.
There should be three divisions in the SEC. East, West and Fantasy….where Auburn reigns supreme in the minds of the ‘most sophisticated fan base’ in CFB.
Bumper sticker time: ‘Too much pain for Auburn is still not enough’
UK’s and Mizzou’s are awful. Fitting that Vandy had an academic bent to theirs with the whole ‘intelligent’ thing. Frankly, ours was lame with the whole attack the day deal.
None of them were all that impressive, and most there really seems to be little imagination put into them.
The Ole Miss and Tenn covers were the least terrible.
At least Mizzou’s was just overly plain. The Kentucky cover looks like they let a high school kid write a bunch of bullshit on it.
I am guessing Freeze, they love him so much at the Grove, going to be bad when they have to choose between firing him and the death penalty.
2017 Missouri Football: “Eh, screw it.”
LOL…instead they should have had a Clipart pic of a guy literally throwing a white towel.
I figured McGoofy would be on our cover with the Caption “National Reserve Fund Champions”
I’m a little disappointed Tennessee didn’t go with the Champions of Life vibe.
I heard it made the final three, but rejected as Dobbs and Reeves-Maybin are no longer with the team.
This made the final three but was rejected on fears someone would try to use it at a Sanford Stadium concession stand.
I guessed Saban..
Thought most of them were pretty ordinary..Georgia’s was the most agressive.. Tennessee’s is the worst..I suppose the vertical juxtaposition of “Vols” is supposed to indicate a program growing upward..and ironically abbreviated.
My guess was Orgeron. Whoops.
LSU, UK, and Vandy look awful. UT, UF, and Ole Miss look sharp.
