After another week of SEC action, Alabama is still the best team in the league and it’s still not really close.  But what else did we learn from last week’s games?  I personally believe we learned a lot as the puzzle continues to unfold.  Kentucky is clearly the worst team in the league while the …

SEC Spotlight

index

As I watched the opening weekend of college football unfold, one thing really stuck out: the SEC is top heavy.  Alabama is once again the team to beat and the others fall in line somewhere beneath them.  The shocking revelation was just how far down some of the other teams are in comparison to ‘Bama. …

For those of you pitching a fit about Aaron Murray being picked over Johnny Manziel as the All-SEC first-team quarterback, put a sock in it.

Herchel’s Preview: Georgia @ Clemson

Deb asked me to post a piece on this game, so here it is. This is an old rivalry, which Georgia leads 41-17-4. This game was played almost every year before the expansions. It is a not so friendly rivalry. Back in the day, I had a “Rednecks Turn Orange in the Fall” Tee shirt. …

I have no problem with Johnny Manziel living the life. I have no problem with him enjoying it. We’d all take the fame, publicity, girls, fun, parties, perks etc. if we were in his position. And let’s not forget, he’s only 20 years old. When I was 20, they didn’t even have MySpace yet. I’d …
