Who Will Be The Breakout SEC Team In 2014?

Auburn’s 2013 football season was nothing short of miraculous. The Tigers were like a homeless man who won the lottery; they rose from rags to riches and made it all the way the BCS National Championship game. Whatever Auburn did to gain the favor of the college football gods, it worked. There is no way you convert a fourth and eighteen against Georgia into a game-winning and season-saving touchdown, or beat Nick Saban with...

2014 SEC Totals – The Revenge of the Defense

Offense was the name of the game in the SEC during the 2013 college football season. The conference best known for its elite defenses and power running games put up points in bunches last year thanks to its elite quarterback play. The SEC has never had as much quarterback talent as it had in 2013. The conference produced 5 of the countries top 12 quarterbacks in passing efficiency and five 3,000 yard passers overall. SEC...

The SEC’s Top Contenders for 2014

Gators senior right guard Jon Halapio described the loss as “shocking” and was struggling to see how UF...

For your consideration: Alabama -7.5

It was bad enough last year when Nick Saban and company got beat at home in front of 100,000 faithful, but then comes Mr. Ego and his off the field circus act this off-season, adding more fuel to the fire. The Crimson Tide players have been eagerly waiting for this day.  More importantly, waiting to get their shot at the Aggie QB (I refuse to say his name) when he steps outside the pocket. It wouldn’t surprise me if a...

For your consideration: Georgia -3

Bulldogs Can’t Win! The critics have spoken, and they have determined that Georgia is unworthy. “The Georgia Bulldogs proved once again they cannot handle the big stage.”  “They were never worthy of a preseason top 5 ranking.”  “When it comes to big games, Aaron Murray lacks the leadership and determination.”  “Coach Mark Richt will not coach next year,” Adding fire to the fuel is Aaron Murray’s record in big...
