Vanderbilt – 0
Georgia – 43
The Dogs just continue to get better. Perfectly timing it the week before their trip to commonwealth, Georgia appears to have righted their ship. While you can point to the return of AJ Green for a morale boost, he actually wasn’t Georgia’s best players this week. That goes to the quarterback and a couple of running backs. If Georgia keeps up a consistently good running game, look for trouble this weekend against the Cats. On the bright side, one of their better backs will still be serving a suspension, so that should ease the pain.
Arkansas – 43
Auburn – 65
If he wasn’t firmly in the Heisman discussion before, Cam Newton is now (even though Mike had a totally better weekend.) All he did was complete 10/14 passes for 140 yards (!!) and rush 25 times for 188 yards. All while being infinitely cooler than Tim Tebow. The game played pretty close until the fourth quarter when Auburn put up 28 to Arkansas 8. As Bomani said… ‘look at those SEC Defenses!’
South Carolina – 28
Kentucky – 31
I can’t lie, I really was not expecting to win this game last week. And like a lot of you, with so many factors going against Kentucky, I didn’t expect us to win at half time. But the boys proved me wrong, and I am more than happy to eat some crow. Kentucky’s defense showed up dominated in the second half, and it’s offense proved it can work it’s magic – even without Locke – against a tough SEC defense. Now it’s time to do your best Michael Vick impersonation Kentucky – let’s beat some Dogs.
Miss State – 10
Florida – 7
What the hell happened to Florida? And why couldn’t it have happened a week earlier? After looking like a legitimate SEC title contender against Kentucky, the gators have now dropped three straight, the first time since the old ball coach roamed the sidelines. The two turnovers didn’t help the gators, but they really just couldn’t find the endzone. Not that Mississippi State was much better. Still, they did what was needed to win, and it’s definitely a weird year for the SEC East.
McNeese State – 10
LSU – 32
Last week I predicted that LSU would win this one on another late touchdown, and Les Miles wouldn’t give a **** what you think. It was supposed to be a joke, but until the second half, it looked like LSU might have a fight on their hands. It was only 17-10 going into the half, but 16 unanswered Tigers points in the second half put the game out of reach. You still have to question LSU legitimacy, but at this point they are 7-0. That’s gotta count for something.
Ole Miss – 10
Alabama – 23
Alabama returned to form, but managed not to impress, all in the same game. Sure McElroy had two touchdowns and no turnovers. Sure they won. But Ingram only had 60 rushing yards, and nobody else really stood out for them. Alabama is good, but they are good in a way that you don’t see in the top tiers of college football much anymore. They control the ball, they play good defense, and they score enough to win – most of the time. They aren’t flashy, but they don’t need to be. Still, would have liked to have seen them lay out Ole Miss a little more.
