A potentially historic season is in the making. I would love to see Kentucky finish the regular season undefeated, win the SEC tournament, and go on to win the national title.

It's about these kids from Mississippi who, in the 1980s, filmed a shot-for-shot remake of Raiders of the Lost Ark. I remember reading about this several years ago in Vanity Fair. The whole movie was up on YouTube for a time. They did an awesome job on a paper thin budget.

The first Alabama-Tennessee game to be played in Tuscaloosa since 1930. Alabama won that game by the score of 18-6 on their way to a third national championship. They would not be so fortunate 69 years later as Tennessee's suffocating defense kept Alabama's offense in check for most of the game.

One of the best games in the history of the Southeastern Conference. Both teams played with a lot of heart and a lot of passion, but in the end the game was won by a man fighting tooth and nail for his job and career.

Their last "good" season was in 2005 when they went 9-3. They've had a couple of 9-win seasons since that time but '05 was really the last year they were viewed as a legitimate national power.
Can they ever return to the glory days of Jimmy Johnson or even Dennis Erickson? ...
