| SEC Rant|| "To Do" List for Ole Miss Black Rebels Bears - Smoke Ring on 10/10/13 at 10:34 pm|
1. Grow your stadium. It's too small for the SEC. If you need money, ask Vandy or Texas A&M for a loan. If you want to grow iit organically, ask State.
2. Learn to tailgate. Not "tent gate," but tailgate. Your grove has no grills, no smoking, no keg stands, and pussed-out people afraid to s...

| SEC Rant|| Sorry, SEC (Field Turf) - Smoke Ring on 9/22/13 at 8:08 pm|
It's documented that no legitimate SEC football program has an artificial playing surface.
Well, for one year, due to all of the construction activity and the lowering of A&M's playing surface, we'll have turf at Kyle Field.
But we'll get rid of it after the 2014 season and rejoin the rank...

Sumlin defeats Saban in 2012, then deftly deals with a firestorm of 2013 controversy over his Heisman-winning starting QB. Always calm, cool, and in control at every turn.

A&M's offense thumped Alabama last year as bad as LSU's defense thumped A&M.
The common denominator for the victor in each game was speed and athleticism.
While Nick Saban and Brisket Bielema have tried to jawbone against the HUNH, the simple fact of the matter is that their time would have ...

The bye week may be at a bad time. Reasons:
1. Disjointed OL play today. Could really use another tune up before Sep. 14th.
2. AJ: 10 completions, 23 attempts, 1 TD, 1 INT. Could also use another week of healing and tune-up.

We need to hear more. Everyone talks about Malzahn's HUNH offense, but will the Auburn Defense be up to SEC standards this year?

1. 'Bama. Focused on revenge for a game that didn't matter. Slightly-feminine QB that gets pushed around by his own linemen when pressure mounts. Shitty chest tattoos. Intermittent crying.

3. LSU. Offense. QB Development.

You should consider it, too.
