CFT Predicts: the SEC

Nick Saban AP

As the 2013 season draws near, we peek into our crystal ball and guess project how each of the five major conferences will play out. Today, we examine the SEC. 

And while we’re at it, check out our other conference previews: Big Ten, Pac-12

SEC East

1.  South Carolina (Last year: 11-2; beat Michigan in Outback Bowl)
What happened last season?
The Gamecocks put together an 11-2 season for the second straight year — the first time in school history the program has accomplished such a feat. Yet, Steve Spurrier‘s team still didn’t make it to the SEC championship game despite handing it to SEC champ Georgia 35-7 in Columbia. Also, this happened. You may have seen it before on SportsCenter. 

So why are they ranked here?
South Carolina and Georgia have taken their respective turns representing the East division in the SEC title for the past three years, and it looks like 2013 will be two-team race between these two once again. The Gamecocks get the edge this time because of their defense, which features preseason Heisman candidate Jadeveon Clowney. But it’s not just the projected No. 1 NFL draft pick that makes this defense so good. Cornerback Victor Hampton and defensive tackle Kelcy Quarles also return.

Anything else?
That’s a Clowney question, bro. But for real, the offense loses wide receiver Ace Sanders. However, the Gamecocks have a solid wide receiver group led by Bruce Ellington and Damiere Byrd. 

2. Georgia (Last year: 12-2; beat Nebraska in Capital One Bowl) 
What happened last season?
If only Chris Conley had been a few yards further, Georgia would have been playing in the BCS championship game. Still, 12-2 and a January bowl win aren’t too shabby. Despite getting blasted by South Carolina midway through the season, UGA still won the East division for the second year in a row.

So why are they ranked here?
The Bulldogs’ offense returns so many key players, including seventh-year senior quarterback Aaron Murray and running backs Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall. But conversely, it’s the defense that loses just about everyone. There’s plenty of talent on that side of the ball and Todd Grantham is considered one of the best in the business at defense coordinator, but there’s enough turnover to cost the Bulldogs the top spot in the East.

Anything else?
Georgia is the media’s favorite to win the SEC East this year, but the month of September could get the Bulldogs off to a slow start. Georgia faces four tough opponents to start the season: Clemson, South Carolina, North Texas* and LSU.

(*Kidding, obviously. But seriously #GoMeanGreen.) 

3. Florida (Last year: 11-2; lost to Louisville in Sugar Bowl)
What happened last season?
It wasn’t always pretty, but Florida won 11 regular season games with arguably one of the tougher schedules in college football. However, the Gators’ season ended in a Sugar Bowl loss to Louisville, something only our favorite Cardinals fan Mark Ennis could have foreseen.

So why are they ranked here?
This is where the Gators fit. The East will continue to be dominated by Georgia and South Carolina at least for another season, and there are some injury concerns on offense for Florida with wide receiver Andre Debose out for the year and running back Matt Jones out indefinitely with a viral infection. Quarterback Jeff Driskel is now a junior and should be a bigger part of this offense. On defense, this team needs to replace stars Matt Elam, Jelani Jenkins and Sharrif Floyd.

Anything else?
It doesn’t affect SEC records, but the Gators have two meaty non-conference games: the annual rivalry with Florida State and an early season game against Miami, a team some feel are flying under the radar.

4. Vanderbilt (Last year: 9-4; beat NC State in the Music City Bowl)
What happened last season?
Seven straight wins to end 2012 gave Vanderbilt its first nine-win season since 1915. James Franklin continues to do an outstanding job building the Commodores’ brand and is now quickly becoming one of the most intriguing coaches in the game.

So why are they ranked here?
That nine-win season? Yeah, Vandy returns 17 starters from that team a year ago. Leading receiver Jordan Matthews is back, but Chris Boydthe team’s second-leading receiver, is currently dealing with a legal issue related to a horrific rape allegation involving four former VU players. Still there should be plenty of firepower on offense and the defensive front seven should be a strength.

Anything else?
Vanderbilt’s next step is to knock off a SEC favorite. This team will have four opportunities to do so against South Carolina, Georgia, Florida and Texas A&M. A season-opener against Ole Miss could also build some early momentum for the ‘Dores.

5. Missouri (Last year: 5-7) 
What happened last season?
Missouri’s first year in the SEC was, shall we say, eye-opening. The Tigers suffered their first losing season under Gary Pinkel in eight years thanks, at least in part, to the fact that quarterback James Franklin couldn’t stay healthy. Missouri’s only two conference wins came against Kentucky and Tennessee.

So why are they ranked here?
It’s not a stretch to think Mizzou can have, say, a two-game swing in the win column this season. The Tigers don’t have to play Alabama or LSU out of the West and there are about four winnable conference games on the schedule. Franklin has to stay healthy, which could again be an issue if the offensive line doesn’t come through. Running back Henry Josey returns after missing last season with a significant knee injury and one-time five-star wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham is a sophomore who needs to have a big year. A lot of previously unknown names are going to have to emerge as playmakers.

Anything else?
Pinkel has been the head coach of Mizzou for 13 years if you can believe it. And, if nothing else, the Tigers have been fairly consistent with winning records. But a new conference and a disappointing 2012 campaign has made the seat beneath Pinkel’s keister a little warm. If there’s not at least a little bit of a turnaround, or some reason to be excited about the future, Mizzou could be looking for another direction by year’s end.

6. Tennessee (Last year: 5-7)
What happened last season?
The Vols suffered their third straight losing season and Derek Dooley was punished by being demoted to the wide receivers coach for the Dallas Cowboys.

So why are they ranked here?
Butch Jones is a good coach and he should be the guy to finally get things turned around for Tennessee. He’s a natural with young people and players love him. That said, Neyland Stadium wasn’t built in a day — neither were UT’s shiny new facilities — and the Vols took a solid gut punch in the passing game with the departures of wide receivers Justin Hunter and Cordarrelle Patterson. Defense has been bad too. There’s a lot to fix and not a lot to work with right away.

Anything else?
The stretch between Sept. 21 (at Florida) and Oct. 26 (at Alabama) is ruthless and unkind. But winning one game against either the Gators, Georgia or South Carolina would go a long way for Jones no matter the final record.

7. Kentucky (Last year: 2-10)
What happened last season?
The Wildcats beat Samford and Kent State, the latter of which almost had a chance to make a BCS bowl appearance. Strange, indeed. Either way, Joker Phillips got canned.

So why are they ranked here?
If Tennessee is building things “brick by brick”, then Kentucky’s going to need some heavier materials. UK made an interesting hire with former Florida State defensive coordinator Mark Stoops, who is recruiting extremely well early. Signing Day 2014 is still a ways off and it’s yet to be seen if those efforts will pay dividends down the road. For now, the Wildcats have too much to improve upon to make a real dent.

Anything else?
The schedule the Wildcats go through doesn’t help. Road games against South Carolina and Georgia aren’t even the worst games — that distinction would belong to hosting Alabama on Oct. 12.

SEC West

1. Alabama (Last year: 13-1; beat Notre Dame in BCS championship)
What happened last season?
Oh, not much. The Tide won the SEC and then mercilessly beat Notre Dame in the BCS championship, giving Nick Saban his third national title in four years with Alabama. Of course, it wasn’t all perfect. Texas A&M came into Tuscaloosa in November and stunned the top-ranked team in the country 29-24. Saban has since been playing that game on loop around the football facilities because money isn’t the root of all evil — satisfaction is.

So why are they ranked here?
Unless the wheels inexplicably fall off or Saban takes his coaching talents to the pros, Alabama is in rolling along (see what we did–ah forget it) and there’s nothing anybody can do to stop it. We could talk about returning starters like A.J. McCarron or C.J. Moseley, or how the Tide’s schedule doesn’t feature any of the SEC East teams expected to finish at or near the top of that respective division. Those are all fine and well, but as long as Saban is wearing crimson, this program is going to be a perennial favorite.

Anything else?
Because college football black magic is very, very real, it should be pointed out again that Alabama has never have won a BCS title when ranked atop the preseason coaches poll. Guess where they’re ranked this year.

2. LSU (last year: 10-3; lost to Clemson in Chick-fil-A Bowl)
What happened last season?
The Tigers shocked the college football world by beating up on a much more talented North Texas team* to open the year and came thisclose to beating Alabama at home (tailback screen FTW!) on their way to a 10-win season. LSU lost by one point to Clemson in the Chick-fil-A Bowl as Tajh Boyd pulled off the toughest individual postseason performance of the year.

(*Kidding, obviously. But seriously #GoMeanGreen.) 

So why are they ranked here?
LSU is an interesting team who’s getting overshadowed by two other SEC West teams. Understandably, Alabama is the overwhelming favorite not only to win the West division, but to win the SEC and get back to another national championship. But the Tigers shouldn’t be counted out so quickly. Defense will always be a staple and Zach Mettenberger has all the tools to be an elite quarterback, he just has to put it all together. Ironically, perhaps his best game last season came in that agonizing loss to Alabama.

Anything else?
Les Miles‘ team has some big games this year, including road games against Georgia and Alabama, and a season-opener against TCU. This is a program that’s thrived in those environments over the last few years (sans a BCS title loss to Alabama in 2012). They’ll need to again if they want to knock off the preseason favorite.

3. Texas A&M (last year: 11-2; beat Oklahoma in Cotton Bowl)
What happened last season?
Kevin Sumlin started Johnny Manziel at quarterback and all of us — defenses, media members, all of us — looked like idiots. Also, Manziel won the Heisman as a redshirt freshman. Just as a reminder.

So why are they ranked here?
Manziel is back… maybe. In fact, this is probably one of the few predictions that actually deserves an asterisk next to it. With the NCAA reportedly investigating whether Manziel improperly received money for signing thousands of pieces of memorabilia, it’s possible he could face suspension. If he does, and depending when and for how long, the Aggies’ win total could dip tremendously. There are a lot of questions defensively even with Manziel in the lineup, and while I personally don’t believe the offseason “controversies” will affect Manziel’s play on the field, he still has a lot of growing to do as a quarterback.

Anything else?
Wide receiver Mike Evans burst on to the scene last year with over 1,100 yards as a freshman. All the talk is about Manziel, but Evans provides an athletic, big target to throw to in this offense. He could have an even bigger year as a sophomore.

4. Ole Miss (Last year: 7-6; beat Pitt in the BBVA Compass Bowl) 
What happened last season?
Hugh Freeze made one of the bigger first-season splashes by leading the Rebels to a seven-win season and then pulling in one of the most impressive recruiting classes for 2013.

So why are they ranked here?
The Rebels are considered to be on the upswing, but the first half of their ’13 schedule is bordering on unfair. Ole Miss travels to Vanderbilt, to Texas in non-conference play, to Alabama, and to Auburn before finally catching a break and hosting Texas A&M and LSU. It seems impossible to get through that stretch unscathed, but if quarterback Bo Wallace cuts down on his mistakes (17 interceptions a year ago) and the defense can clamp down even a little (the Rebels gave up an average of 36 points in five losses to the aforementioned six opponents last season thanks in part to 66 points from the Longhorns), then this team should find itself with some quality wins headed into an easier second half of the schedule.

Anything else?
If you think Ole Miss has broken any recruiting rules, Freeze asks that you email Thanks and hotty toddy!

5. Auburn (Last year: 3-9)
What happened last season?
The Tigers failed to win a conference game and Gene Chizik, two years removed from winning a BCS championship, was fired.

So why are they ranked here?
Gus Malzahn, who was the offensive coordinator for Auburn when it won that national title over Oregon in 2011, returns to The Plains as head coach hoping to turn things around. There are plenty of guys returning on both sides of the ball… it’s just that neither side played particularly well. It’s not like there’s a lack of talent at Auburn, so if Malzahn and his coaching staff, which features veteran defensive coordinator Ellis Johnson, can get the production out of their players in a way Chizik couldn’t, then there’s no reason this team can’t go bowling this year.

Anything else?
Nick Marshall, a former Georgia defensive back, will be the starting quarterback for the Tigers. Meanwhile, Kiehl Frazier, Auburn’s former starting quarterback, has moved to defensive back.

6. Mississippi State (Last year: 8-5; lost to Northwestern in the Gator Bowl) 
What happened last season?
Things were looking good for Dan Mullen‘s team, which was 7-0 headed into a late October game against Alabama. That’s when it fell apart and the schedule got significantly harder. The Bulldogs lost 38-7 in Tuscaloosa and went on to drop five of their last six games, including a bowl loss to Northwestern.

So why are they ranked here?
Because the SEC West is arguably the deepest division in college football. It’s quite possible that six teams could be bowl eligible here. Quarterback Tyler Russell is back, but there will be plenty of new faces at wide receiver. Six starters return on defense, but in all, this is a relatively young team that will be tested when it faces South Carolina, Texas A&M and Alabama in consecutive weeks.

Anything else?
If Bulldogs center Dillon Day plays as well as he bowls, then MSU should have a spectacular season.

7. Arkansas (Last year: 4-8)
What happened last season?
Bobby Petrino drove his motorcycle off a road. John L. Smith then drove the BCS-ready Razorbacks into the ground. Hog fans didn’t take either particularly well.

So why are they ranked here?
Arkansas brings in a new coach in Bret Bielema, but loses quarterback Tyler Wilson, its top two leading rushers and receivers from a year ago. Defense was a major liability last season and will have to improve significantly if the offense doesn’t get going. And that schedule? Brutal. The Hogs may not win a game past September.

Anything else?
Freshman running back Alex Collins had some drama trying to Fayetteville, but in Bielema’s run-heavy offense, he could make a huge impact right away.

    If Georgia can get past South Carolina they definitely have an inside track to the SEC East championship.

    I do not know about the SEC West standings since anything can happen, and every once in awhile it does. It may come down to which team has the ball last in several key games. Home field advantage is completely useless in the Alabama-LSU game either direction. If anything it favors the visitor.

    If Johnny Manziel can focus on football after all the distractions he has caused in the off season, and if he is not suspended by A&M in anticipation of what they think the NCAA may do, then A&M will be a bigger problem that the top teams in the SEC may wish to handle.

    There are other teams which appear to be resurging, so the SEC will be much more of a gauntlet this season than some of the past seasons.

    Cam Cameron, the NFL QB and offensive guru, creator of Air Coryell, will bring needed variety and improvement to LSU’s offense, which arguably could not have been much worse at times. Mettenberger will have a break-out season with new receivers and a much greater variety of plays. His drop backs are much faster, sure-footed, and release much quicker now.

    To quote southernpatriots:

    “This should be a very entertaining season of SEC football!”

  2. irishdodger says: Aug 21, 2013 2:52 PM

    Bama is an easy choice for champion of everything from their division to the nation. They’re a quasi-NFL team & have earned all the pre season plaudits they receive.

    I love Georgia’s offense. Well balanced, efficient & capable of being high octane when needed. With all the pass rushing specialists on last year’s D, that didn’t translate to their rushing defense which was average…at best. They must get better on D & I think they will.

    Gotta love Clowney but he’s only one guy. Can the Gamecock’s QB stay healthy all season? My money is on “no”…but their backup is talented so who knows? I think they’re overrated compared to Georgia.

    I think Vandy is overrated. For Vandy, it was a nice season but did they beat a team w/ a winning record? I think Missouri finishes ahead of Vandy. If they’re healthy this year, they’ll be the surprise in the East.

    Ole Miss is getting a lot of love & deservedly so based on Freeze’s recent recruiting haul. I like Auburn to surprise and finish higher than them in the West this year.

    Anxious to see what all the new HCs do in the SEC. Bielema inherited some bare cupboards. Butch Jones did, too. Stoops is lighting up the recruiting trail…how does that translate on the field.

    MSU had a hard time beating teams w/ winning records last year as well. They have talent. Fair or not, Mullen has to be feeling heat from the success Ole Miss has had recently…especially if he turns in another underperforming season.

    Just one man’s opinion. Flame away….

  3. wabbitslayer says: Aug 21, 2013 3:46 PM

    Alabama will repeat as West champs…and as far as the East goes, nobody knows, because nobody ever knows what Georgia team will show up from week to week (much less for a whole season).

  4. ramsey601 says: Aug 21, 2013 3:57 PM

    alligatorsnapper says: Aug 21, 2013 1:15 PM

    Cam Cameron, the NFL QB and offensive guru, creator of Air Coryell, …

    You may want to study up on your football history and show Don Coryell some respect. Air Coryell was happening at San Diego State in the 60’s when Cam was still in diapers.

  5. badgerbuck says: Aug 21, 2013 4:31 PM

    That conference is beginning to get boring with alabama winning the title every year. Hard to watch

  6. Deb says: Aug 21, 2013 4:59 PM

    Looking forward to another great year of SEC Football and hoping Alabama does not disappoint. I say that both as a Bama fan and as a Steelers fan who expects a long, long season. 😦

    But … I sure wish we weren’t starting in the top spot. Hate opening the season in that position. ROLL TIDE!

  7. necr0philia says: Aug 21, 2013 5:46 PM

    ==========It’s All about the==========


    Sorry for “Trolling” but I’m very excited for Football! Oh yeah Ga is finally going to beat SOuth Car0lina this year! Go Canes!

  8. bigdinla says: Aug 21, 2013 7:00 PM

    Cam wasn’t at San Diego til 2002. Coryrell had retired over a decade before. You LSU fans are really drinking the koolaid of a coach that has been fired from to straight jobs.

  9. kcrobert10 says: Aug 21, 2013 9:45 PM

    Lets be honest this is the only college football conference that matters anymore. My prediction Alabama wins the west ( mostly picking them cause of the been there done that factor), south Carolina in the east (due to easier schedule compared to Georgia). Oh and deb you can root for the tigers this yr cause Mu doesn’t play Alabama. My prediction for my tigers 4-4 4th or 5th place in the east but bowl eligible. Alabama will win another national title or sec title which ever you want to call it.

  10. justpassingthrew says: Aug 22, 2013 2:39 AM

    Picking Vanderbilt and Missouri ahead of Tennessee is a stretch.Butch Jones is easily a big reason for the Vols to finish above both.The James Franklin hysteria is coming to an end while reality is setting in on anyone who thinks Pinkel can win big in the SEC

  11. 8to80texansblog says: Aug 22, 2013 3:51 PM

    At the end of last season I thought and hoped that the Aggies could beat Bama at home and have their first real sniff at a national title since the early 90’s when they got very close several times only lose to ND in the Cotton Bowl time and time again.

    But with the offseason we’ve been having, the uncertainty around Johnny Football, I feel like the Ags are gonna crushed in front of probably the largest crowd in A&M history. Plus LSU on the road suggests another loss there.

    And while the rest of their schedule seems much more manageable, if the defense doesn’t show up, we could be in for a long season…

    While I doubt we’re good enough for a BCS game or SECCG, I do very much hope to go back to the Cotton Bowl and hopefully the Horns will get their shyt together and meet us there. (Every Tsip reading this is thinking they are going to the national title game though… lol)

  12. dmvtransplant says: Aug 22, 2013 6:44 PM

    I can not believe anyone is suggesting Cam Cameron is good at his job? It’s like the NFL or Super Bowl doesn’t get broadcast in SEC country. When a team has to fire you to win a championship, that’s the best statement about your ability.

    My prediction LSU gets rid of Cam before Halloween and wins another crystal football.


    Anyone that watched the NFL playoffs last year

  13. suprmous says: Aug 23, 2013 1:20 AM

    Granted we’ve got our share of folks wantin to take their chances with the Draft and a few with their own demons but these 2 things don’t necessairly add up to be bed fellows. The bed fellows seem to have this year as the time for it tho. We’ve got some who’re willin to wait patiently and come out when the Coast’s clear and not before. It’s one thing to face an angry mob and another to ignore him. I’d love to see that piece of treasured chrystal back in Baton Rouge but just not for overnite company.
    dmvtransplant, I watched the NFL Playoffs last year. My Saints and I wanted to go to the Big Dance but it just wasn’t meant to be. BUT WE’RE BACK!!!!!!!!

  14. florida727 says: Aug 23, 2013 9:59 AM

    As a Florida fan, I can’t argue with anything listed in the predictions. For the Gators to actually win the East, yeah, they’d have to pull off TWO colossal upsets. And neither one is at The Swamp. Talk order against teams as stacked as UGA and the ‘Cocks.

    I do need to take this opportunity to take a tongue-in-cheek cheap shot at Aaron Murray (who I actually love watch playing)…

    Dude, SEVENTH-year senior. Holy crap. I thought it was bad that I crammed my four-year degree into six-and-a-half :) Seriously, good luck. This is your last hurrah. Make it a memorable one for UGA fans and yourself.

  15. alligatorsnapper says: Aug 23, 2013 12:19 PM

    Had no idea Aaron Murray was a 7 year senior. Is he going to complete his degree this year? I am not sure I ever heard of that before.

    No doubt the Gators have a difficult schedule to face.

    LSU plays 5 top 25 teams this season, as tigersgeaux posted on a different blog to an Ohio State fan. Equal to Ohio State (3) and Alabama (2).

    Southernpatriots reported that Mike Slive telephoned LSU AD and the LSU president to thank them for doing that. He wants to increase SEC in conference games to 9 with one marque game each season for each team in the SEC. LSU has done that now for some seasons with TCU to start the season with this year and Wisconsin next year.

  16. parkcityute says: Aug 23, 2013 12:33 PM

    I don’t post much but over the years I have become a fan of Coach Cam Cameron. I understand he and Miles of LSU go back to the beginning of their coaching days under Bo Schembechler of Michigan. I am a Ute, not a LSU fan.

    Ask Nick Saban about being fired. Being fired is common among even the better coaches in the NFL. It is the nature of the business.

    “With his teams securing a better than .600 winning percentage with him as offensive coordinator (100-57 regular season record in 10 seasons with San Diego and Baltimore), he is one of the winningest coordinators in NFL history.

    In his nearly 10 full seasons as an NFL offensive coordinator (San Diego Chargers from 2002–06; Baltimore Ravens from 2008-2012), Cam Cameron was a part of 100 victories, averaging 10 wins per season. He helped San Diego compile a 47-33 regular season record as the offensive coordinator for the Chargers, while the Ravens notched a 53-24 regular season mark during Cameron’s tenure in Baltimore.”

    dmvtransplant: Your color has turned from crimson to green. No one who knows Coach Cameron’s record or coaching has to state he is good at his job, his record speaks for itself.

  17. dmvtransplant says: Aug 23, 2013 7:58 PM

    @ parkcityute

    No where in that record was the term Super Bowl (think the Giants, Steelers or Patriots care about 10 wins a season) and that record speaks for itself which is my point. If LSU just wants to go to the Cotton Bowl every year Cam is the right person for the job.

    I don’t see the complete head over heals people have for the guy?

  18. amosalanzostagg says: Aug 23, 2013 9:06 PM

    Sorry, ParkCityUtes

    Saban left Miami because he could could not have
    control over what players he would be getting for his football team. His displeasure with the Dolphins is Alabama’s gain.

    The list of the SEC is correct and I cannot wait for the season to start!


  19. parkcityute says: Aug 24, 2013 8:35 AM

    Amos: Yoot is a hoot! Saban won the SuperBowl at Miami? Set the world on fire there? No, the opposite. He was in the NFL long enough to know the tenure for head coaches and especially assistant coaches is very tenuous. He has even spoken about the “revolving door” in the NFL.

    dmvtransplant: Don’t fulfill the stereotypes of Alabama fans, I know you can read…”he is one of the winningest coordinators in NFL history.” That doesn’t matter to you. What matters to you is a SuperBowl ring. Okay. Cam has one of those also. Look it up. According to his head coach, he earned it. Despite the prima donna not getting along with his discipline.

    Cam is the most successful offensive coordinator who faithfully continues Air Coryell and its variations and evolutions. Alligatorsnapper had a bad choice of words or got it wrong about Cam creating Air Coryell, maybe better said, he is the best (and most successful) proponent of Air Coryell today.

  20. tigersgeaux says: Aug 24, 2013 4:46 PM

    It seems that the dmv needs to transplant that Bama fan to another state (at least of knowledge) that he would just quit after parkcityute put him to shame.

    Alert to everyone: The writer of this story along with many others, Ken Kercheval is leaving us here at CFT and joining Screacher Retort. I will now at least look at them again for the sake of Ben.

  21. John Taylor says: Aug 24, 2013 4:51 PM

    “…Ken Kercheval is leaving us here at CFT…”

    Ben has (had) been here for a little over three years, and I believe that’s the first time anyone’s ever referred to him as the former “Dallas” actor. Kudos, tigersgeaux!!!

  22. tigersgeaux says: Aug 24, 2013 5:35 PM

    John Taylor: Haaa. I am still laughing. Maybe that was a slip of some kind, but I think it was a typo, which is something I do regularly. Sorry to Ben. Thanks for the heads up John.

  23. florida727 says: Aug 24, 2013 8:56 PM

    JT, for the record, I’m available to replace Ben. Hard to believe, but I do follow college football outside of the SEC :)

  24. southernpatriots says: Aug 26, 2013 5:41 PM

    Latest word from the execs at “Screacher Retort”:

    Ben’ writings will debut next week on the report. Around that time you will be able find them by searching “benkerchevalblea…rep…”

    Hope that helps all.

  25. newweblab says: Sep 14, 2013 11:28 AM

    I’m not sure if it’s Aaron’s 6th or 7th year (I believe it’s his 6th), but the rest of the story, which isn’t in this article is that he’s a grad student. He’s not a 6th or 7th year undergrad, which most people would conclude after reading this article.

  26. tigersgeaux says: Sep 14, 2013 12:45 PM


    When did Aaron complete his undergraduate degree? I heard it was in his 6th year of UGA? He may well be a grad student now, but when did he complete his undergraduate degree?

  27. lifeimitatesfootball says: Oct 26, 2013 12:27 AM

    Gee Dolphins fans are still crapping about Saban?
    Cam Cameron? Screw those guys! Go Gig ‘Em Aggies!
    Just hope one year they get a chance to beat the t-sips!

    Lifeimitatesfootball: the aggies had over a hundred years to beat the University and could only do it on the average of once every three years (76-37-5). That why they left with their tails curled under their rears. And they still can’t win in the weaker sec. If you wanted to at us soooo badly why did you run away crying and squealing? I know what it is. You miss us. 😀
