I think we can all agree that Sumlin had a pathetic season. Finishing third in the DIVISION let alone the country is terrible when you have a Heisman winning QB, two first round draft picks on the OL (one of the pick one or two), and another #1 or #2 pick on the DL.
Obviously the immense talent o...

Solid win on the road by the Ags. Kennedy coached a hell of a game to come back from such a large deficit. Eliminate the sloppy turnovers and don't shoot ice cold from three and it would have been a big win. An impressive showing of heart :nana: :nana:...

After Vandy's win over Ole Miss, they can conceivably win out their season (including a bowl game) with games against UT and Wake.
I know that this team made a lot of progress last year, but would a 9-4 Vandy team be the biggest positive surprise of the year in the SEC?...

So far all the talk I've seen today about A&M's offense against Bama has been very positive. Bama couldn't keep up with the tempo, KK called a good game, JFF is the real deal, etc. which is what I would expect.
But let's say that McCarron's last pass is a touchdown instead of an INT and Bama wins...
