SEC Highlights From the Weekend: Bama Handles LSU, Arkansas Stuns Ole Miss, Florida Locks Up the East and More
#2 LSU 16 at #4 Alabama 30
It seems this game every year has not only SEC West implications but a shot at National Championship is on the line. Even though this game was #2 vs #4 in the CFB Playoff standings, it was more #1 vs #2…as in Heisman candidates. The nations top 2 RBs were the conversation before, during, and after the game Saturday. Well #4 Alabama and their RB Derrick Henry, the latter of the Heisman cadidates, straight up dominated the Tigers. Henry ran all over LSU’s defense for 210 yards and 3 TD while Leonard Fournette, who did score, rushed for only 31 yards on 19 carries. Hell, LSU’s offence totaled 182 yards.
I know Nick Saban is small little troll but DAMN Derrick Henry is a big ass dude.
Arkansas 53 at #18 Ole Miss 52
This was the game of the weekend. Arkansas stunned Ole Miss in Oxford on this 4th and 25 in OT. One of the craziest plays you will see. Besides the fact that TE Hunter Henry was inches away from being down, which wins the game for Ole Miss, anyone other than the Collins picking it up and they are no doubt tackled well before the first down. As the score shows, a few plays later Arkansas scored a TD and elected to go for TWO and WIN. Hogs QB Brandon Allen finished with 442 yards and 6 TDs including the final TD and 2pt conversion. He beat the Rebal’s Asses so bad the fans called the damn POPO.
This game was so exciting it had Bret Bielema ready to “hop on his wife”.

Well I’m glad I was able to vent yesterday on my post about UGA and Mark Richt parting ways. I know, and somewhat respect, most peoples opinions on the future of Mark Richt. The people I don’t are the idiots that pop off dumb ass comments to get a rise and have no knowledge of football. Listen, making a change after 15 years of anything is hard enough, but when you’re talking a Head Coaching change in the SEC… hell that has divided more families than the Ashley Madison leak.
So now that I’ve stated where I stand on the current situation at Georgia, lets move on and “humor” ourselves to see who could be a potential replacement IF, (and that’s a big IF) CMR’s 15 year tenure comes to an end. There are several names that could be candidates but I’m going to tell you about the two that would be the best options and make the most sense.
Jeremy Pruitt – Defensive Coordinator – University of Georgia
Pros: Pruitt is only in his 2nd season with Georgia. He has a proven track record with programs that have won National Championships (Alabama 2011 & 2012, Florida State 2013). Pruitt has great relationships and ties to HS coaches in the Southeast and is know as one of the best recruiters in College Football.
Cons: No Head Coaching experience. Reports of rifts with the Athletic Department and other coaches.
My Take: Personally I think this is you make. Pruitt is waiting for the right Head Coaching offer to come, and it could be any time now. There are 3 main reason he would be great for UGA. First, Pruitt is a proven winner. Yes he hasn’t been the head guy on any of those teams, or for any team for that matter, but there is something to be said for being an integral part in 3 straight National Championships. Two, Pruitt also gives you a different personality. This has been a complaint by Dawg fans for years. We’ve all heard the comments that have been thrown around: He’s soft, too conservative, too nice, not enough emotion, etc. Pruit gives you some more “fire”. He’s still the nice guy off the field like you have to be for parents and recruits, but he shows his emotions on the field. Is that always better? No, take a look at Will Muschamp. But Georgia has to go in with a different personality. Finally, Pruitt knows and has a relationship the current recruiting class. The main reason I keep hearing over and over on why we need to keep Richt is “We’ve got this great class coming in led by Jacob Eason”. Problem solved. Will we lose a recruit or two? Probably. Could we gain a recruit or two? Probably. Will we lose Eason? Doubt it. He’s a hard commit that has been committed for nearly 2 years and has recruited others. As long as there is no drastic change, Eason should still be a Dawg in January. My last thought on Pruitt is if he doesn’t have some “hand shake” deal that he is the coach in waiting, then he will be gone in the next year or two anyways. He’s too hot of a name and too good of a coach. His time is coming and hope it’s not another SEC school.
Kirby Smart – Defensive Coordinator- University of Alabama
Pros: DC of 2 National Championship teams at Alabama. Also one of the top recruiters in the country with Southeastern ties. Voted Assistant Coach of the Year in ’09 and ’12. And we all know he’s a former UGA player
Cons: No Head Coaching experience. Is he and his Defense a product of Nick Saban? Highest paid assistant coach in the country.
My Take:The pros and cons as well as my opinions on Kirby are very similar to Pruitt. He’s a proven winner. Kirby Smart has been the DC at Alabama since 2008 so he has coached 2 National Championship winning teams. Smart has been a hot name for four or five years now with nearly every HC opening. I’m pretty sure he’s just been waiting for the right one and if his Alma Mater isn’t it, I don’t what what is. He’s year in and year out ranked as one of the best recruiters and the talent he has coached and produced at Alabama speaks for itself. I don’t see Georgia losing many if any current commits. Chances are he know these players very well because he’s been recruiting them as well. Again, like Pruitt, Kirby Smart will give you a different more intense personality that I believe is needed. If Georgia waits too long on Kirby then they also could miss out on a great heir to Mark Richt to another SEC school (South Carolina). No doubt that if it came down to Georgia and the other current openings at South Carolina, Virginia Tech, or Miami…he would be a Dawg.
Other Candidates to Consider:
Gary Patterson – HC TCU – He’s long shot but is an interesting candidate that you would have to call.
Justin Fuente – HC Memphis – I think too many uneducated football fans are gonna say WHO? Fuente is 18-3 in the past 2 years at Memphis. His team is currently 8-0 and ranked #13 with a huge win over Ole Miss. He also has a 6’7 QB that might be a 1st round pick. Anyways, I think he will be an excellent HC for a big program but I don’t think he is the right name or guy to replace Richt.
Tom Herman HC Houston – The former Ohio State OC under Urban Meyer is Houston team is currently 8-0 and ranked #18 in the Nation. Oh and it’s his first year as a head coach. But he may fall into the WHO category like Fuente.
Chad Morris HC SMU– Again, a hot name after his success at Clemson’s OC but he’s currently 1-7 at SMU and that shit ain’t gonna fly…not for this job.
Mark Dantonio HC Michigan State – Another long shot but you gotta ask right? Two downsides though…he’s 59 and lacks Southeastern ties for recruiting.
Now I know most people are going to say…”None of these guys are better than Mark Richt”. That may be true. But you can’t always think that way. Mark Richt came into a mess at Georgia and resurrected the program into having the expectations we have today. I get it, “the grass isn’t always greener” and “Be careful what you wish for”. We’ve all heard those cliche’s before and you know what, that might be the case. What we do know is that Mark Richt has done a great job making Georgia the program it is today. But we also know Georgia has shit the bed over and over and fucking over again in big games. The record of 14-26 vs Ranked Opponents since our last SEC Championship speaks for itself. Do I expect to win all those games? Of course not. But what I’m tired of, is going into these big games and dreading the outcome because of what history has taught me.
Again, I’m not saying Mark Richt is a bad coach…He’s a great coach. What I am saying is that it’s time for a change for both CMR and UGA. Trust me I wish this would have worked out in the sense of a National Championship. Unfortunately it didn’t and I don’t see what else he can do to get Georgia over that hump. I don’t know if the replacement (whoever and whenever that is) will be able to get us there but it’s time to find out.
With Jeremy Pruitt and Kirby Smart it’ll soften the blow from separating from someone as successful as Richt. At the same time, with either, you are getting one of the most coveted candidate in the past decade and both are Georgia Guys.
AAAHHHH!!!! That’s my sigh of relief after the 1st week of College Football. And as always it didn’t disappoint…unless your a fan of South Carolina or Clemson. Rough opening weekend for the Palmetto State. Thursday, the 1st SEC Network football game, South Carolina got fucking DRILLED by Kenny “The Thrill” Hill and Texas A&M in their 1st Post Johnny Football game. South Carolina was 10 point favorites vs the Aggies and from the initial drive by A&M, South Carolina was behind. Kenny Hill came in and said Johnny Fucking who?!! Breaking the A&M single game passing record for yards with 511. Welcome to the scene young buck.
Gamecock starting QB Dylan Thompson played really well with 366 yds passing and 4 TD and Star RB Mike Davis was very limited with injured ribs. Even with a health Davis, no way he makes up for all those points. South Carolina’s D was nonexistent. A&M looked like they were playing against Skeleton Defense. Gamecocks better figure it out this week against East Carolina because they have to play UGA in 2 weeks.
The other Palmetto State team, Clemson, looked good for the first 1/2. The second 1/2 they got completely Mollywhopped by the Dawgs. UGA’s core of Beast Mode Running Backs ran ALL OVER Clemson’s D. Led by Heisman Candidate Todd “TG3” Gurley’s 293 All Purpose Yards including a 100 yard Kick off return. Both Freshmen, Sony Michel and Nick Chubb, didn’t disappoint either. Michel showed his speed and quickness getting to and turning the corners. Chubb looked like a Man among boys, let alone a true freshman. Chubb is a BEAST and will be for years to come. Kid has speed and power. TG3 stole the show though. After only 4 carries in the 1st half, that had Georgia fans asking “What the Fuck”, Gurley made his presence known and solidified himself as the Best RB in College Football.
But everyone knew what to expect from Gurley. The unexpected and what every UGA fan wanted to see was Jeremy Pruitt’s Defense. The 1st half was a little shaky, but the 2nd half was one of the most dominant Defensive displays you will see. The Dawgs D held Clemson to 15 yards the 2nd half. 15 YARDS. Total. Clemson got 1…one first down the 2nd half. The Dawgs came out and used a Dime Defense on 3rd downs and brought pressure from any and everywhere. Linebacker Leonard Floyd wrecked havoc and will be a household name very soon. If the Dawgs D can keep this up, they will be a very, very tough team to beat.

Ole Miss freshman hopeful WR Sammie Epps was arrested last week for pot. As reported by the Clarion Ledger, Epps was held at the Laffayette County Detention Center, booked on the marijuana charge and also driving without a license. Just wanted to say two things A: why the fuck are you driving without a license, even in never-go-over-30mph’s Oxford town and B: why didn’t you eat that shit dude! Always munch on your nugs when you see the red and blue behind you! Epps was reportedly dressed out for practice the following Monday. The Rebels open their season against Boise State Tonight at 7pm Eastern in the Georgia Dome.
Hotty Toddy bitches!
This kid either has a death wish or some Stone Mountain sized balls. QB Clint Trickett did grow up in College Football. His dad has been a long time Assistant Coach for several schools. But to tell a reporter that his 1st kiss was Saban’s daughter a week before they play Alabama is like playing Russian Roulette with 5 bullets. I mean come on dude, at least wait until you’ve gotten blown out by 30 and then tell the media “Oh well, at least I made out with Saban’s Daughter”. I don’t care if they were 6 and playing house, Saban will get his revenge.
PS. And she’s engaged? Can you imagine the nerve it would take to ask Satan himself for his daughters hand in marriage? Balls I tell you Big HUGE BALLS.

124 Arrests total. Good God!! Looks like Missouri was a great fit into the SEC. Where you at Texas A&M? Get with the fucking program you stiffs. I don’t care if you are a Military ROTC school. Those guys are usually the craziest fuckers around. Start a bar fight or donkey punch some Cleat chaser, shit. I’m guessing Saban has the Tuscaloosa PD on the payroll because 7 can’t be right. And I swear Tennessee has more than 5 as well. I’m pretty sure they doubled that in 2014 but that was just a raging house party so it shouldn’t count. UGA and Florida are keeping their solid reputation as the Criminals of the Conference. Hey I lived in Athens and I don’t know anyone who wasn’t arrested at some point or another. You should be given 1 “Get out of Jail Free” Card whenever you start school there. Factor it into Tuition somehow.
Here’s a Breakdown of UGA Arrests
Well one good thing Bama fans are good for is good laugh. Holy shit!! This is a Christmas Card if I’ve ever seen one. Only thing missing is that dudes Ass Crack hanging out. Guess he decided to class it up for family picture day. There is so much wrong with this picture. One being him and his wife’s fat asses in the fore front. Lil Man is within inches of getting squished to his death. You know these kids are named Saban, Bear, Crimson, and Tide too. Thanks for the Laughs Bama Fans!!
SEC East Champions: GEORGIA BULLDOGS
Call me Bias. Call me a Homer. Call me a fucking idiot. And then kiss my ass. I AM Bias. I AM a Homer. I
AM can be a fucking idiot. But I’m not putting the Dawgs on top of the East because I’m a UGA fan. I’m putting them there because I think they are the best team in a down East. They do have a few question marks in Hutson Mason and their Secondary. The key to Hutson Mason’s success is limiting his mistakes and getting the ball to his playmakers. I also think this what Mason is best at. He knows the system and knows where to go with the ball. And most of all, He has the beast in Todd “TG3” Gurley behind him. Gurley is THE BEST RB in the country. The Dawgs will go as far as TG3 carries them.
As for the Defense and specifically the Secondary, I think Jeremy Pruitt is the Defensive Coordinator UGA has been looking for since BVG. He is demanding and a winner. I don’t think he’ll be afraid to get in their face and “Motherfuck” someone. He and Richt got rid of the punk ass kids who would rather goof around than contend for National Championships and made the entire D start from scratch. After the Grantham “Era” that’s exactly what they needed.
PREDICTION: 11-1 (7-1 in SEC)
SEC West Champs: Alabama Crimson Tide
Damn that’s some serious Hardware. Love em or Hate em…everyone is jealous of their success. When you have been the best team in College Football damn near year in and year out your gonna be hated. And especially when you have dipshit redneck pieces of shit fans. Not all Bama fans. I have plenty of Bama friends. And they will even be the 1st to say they have some piece of shit fans. But between them, Saban, and those rings, Alabama is the most hated team in College Football. And Guess what? You’re gonna hate them again this year.
I think the West will be decided again by the Iron Bowl. However, with the game being in Tuscaloosa this year and the Kick Six from last year, no way Saban doesn’t have his team ready for redemption.
The Crimson Tide still don’t know who will be their starting QB this year but with the RB’s (Yeldon, Henry, and Drake) they have, I could probably play QB and win 9 games. Sims and Coker will probably both see plenty of time this season. Their D will be tough as always, that is what Saban and Bama are known for. It won’t be as easy for Bama as past years but I still give them the “Upper Hand” because of the Upper Hand.
PREDICTION: 11-1 (7-1 in SEC)
STAY TUNED FOR MY SEC CHAMPIONSHIP PREDICTION!!
Aside from the third trimester abortion against the Texans and losing Sam Baker for the entire year (which might not actually be a bad thing), this is a damn good episode.
The first ten minutes of the show looked more like a medical documentary than a show about football. Marquis Spruill apparently signed a waiver allowing HBO to film his ACL surgery, and holy shit did they ever invade his space. In a scene not for the weak stomach, the cameras get up close and personal, cleaning shit out of the knee, screwing shit in the knee, and grafting skin to cover shit on the knee. It was fucking sick.
Some boring footage of Steven Jackson in the pool and Kroy Biermann dipping comes next, but what followed afterwards was flat out shocking: Defensive line coach Bryan Cox has a 30 year old daughter.
Bryan Cox is 46.
“I told you, I started fucking when I was 10,” Cox said defiantly, as he scolded one player for following his daughter on Instagram.
Next, Falcons fans finally get some footage of their beloved Julio Jones and Matt Ryan, who actually drops several F-bombs in this episode and even tells a dirty joke.
The Falcons then traveled to Houston to practice with and play a preseason game against the Texans. The game itself was awful, with the Birds getting their asses handed to them. Starting left tackle Sam Baker tore his patellar tendon and is out for the season.
Some other highlights:
- Jake Matthews is the real fucking deal. He took on JJ Watt in practice and held his own. Fuckin stud.
- William Moore has decent freestyle skills.
- Harry Douglas, despite his horrible bowling technique in which he throws the ball about 10 feet in the air, with spin, appears to be a damn good bowler.
- TJ Yates doesn’t know the playbook worth a shit, but everyone in the Texans organization loves him.
- Devonta Freeman continues to look like a legitimate starting running back in the NFL.
- Mike Smith still wears awful sandals
This Video gets me more hyped for Football season than anything. This what its all about. Drunk ass fans talking shit to their rivals. That’s what I’m fucking talking about…WOOO!!!! I love the passions this kid shows. He’s so fucking hyped, or Drunk, that he’s just making up fucking words. And this is Louisville and Kentucky FOOTBALL he’s talking about. Not Georgia/Florida. Not Michigan/Ohio State. Not Auburn/Alabama. Football season is in the Air Motherfuckers. Every fan should be “Optimistical” going into the season. It’s the beauty of College Football. And the better part is any fan’s dreams can be crushed after week one as well. GET HYPED!!!
PS. How about the Bags under this kids eyes. Look like he’s been on a week long bender!! Fuck it…Keep the bender going. 9 More Days til Kickoff!!
