October Off to a Bang

GEORGIA…Bama. This is big time, y’all. Alabama doesn’t want to be forced to realize the dynasty is over. We are poised for a breakthrough. Alabama had (only) one undefeated SEC + National Champion team during their historic four-year run. They…

SEC Power Shifts Middle

At the bottom is an article I posted back in August about these programs: 1. Alabama – going for 3-of-4 nationally, undefeated but largely untested 2. Georgia – 4 and 3 and missing 7 of 22 starters, bad defense, horrible…

Next Step

So close we could taste it, we didn’t get there and had to watch BAMA go from could-have-been dynasty diverted by the Dawgs, to an undeniable champion having won 3-of-4 National Championships. Auburn won the only other in a full…

Welcome to the Jungle

UGA may be having a good year, but we do not have a road win against a rival yet. Florida is a neutral site, and we suddenly own Jacksonville. The Vols came to the Classic City, as will little Georgia…

Bring on the Alabama State Schools

Florida sits atop the SEC East at the end of their SEC season, but it is not where they wanted to be. Georgia alum Will Muschamp led them to a one-loss season, but that loss was to the tiebreaker-owning Bulldogs,…

Texas A&M has an ongoing border rivalry with Arkansas that dates back to the Southwest Conference which has been played annually of late in the NFL Cowboys Stadium just outside Dallas. LSU and Texas A&M faced off in a bowl…

11-State League (TV Markets Galore)

The SEC is now an 11-state league, and take a peak at these television markets: 1. Texas: Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, El Paso, Austin 2. Georgia: Atlanta, Augusta 3. Florida: Miami, Tampa Bay, Orlando, Jacksonville 4. Missouri: St. Louis, Kansas…

2012 UGA SEC Media Days Report

Mark Richt, the longest-tenured head football coach in the greatest American college football conference, headlined the SEC Media Days in Hoover, AL on July 19th. Over three gloriously long days in the Birmingham area, thirteen other head football coaches had…

The Big Four

For the first time in his mostly successful eleven-year head coaching career at the nation’s oldest state chartered public university, Mark Richt was able to do what Jim Donnan and Ray Goff never could: beat our four biggest rivals in…

Looking Ahead to 2012

Last week of the year, so instead of rehashing 2011 it’s time to look ahead. BAMA – mighty BAMA – got dropped from the schedule as the SEC East has seven teams and now only two out-of-division slots. The Dawg…
