SEC Week 4 Preview

September 20, 2014

The lone good game of this week's SEC slate was played on Thursday in Manhattan, Kansas. Since my procrastination doesn't have classwork to delay me any longer, it has manifested itself in through my yardwork. The last thing I want to do on a Saturday in the fall is yardwork. After all, the grass and weeds will all be dying soon anyway. That is, unless my neighbor mows his lawn. Then I am obligated, driven by guilt and shame, to mow the yard and pull the weeds. Anyways, due to my procrastination all we have left is a yawn-inducing week of SEC football. Which is weird, because it's the third Saturday of September and the Gators aren't playing Tennessee. Thanks, Obama!* Anyhow, let's get to the games.

Flora-Bama
The Gators continue their Muschamp Goodbye Tour this week in Tuscaloosa. It might be a decent game. But this battle for the panhandle could also get ugly. This same Gator team allowed the Cats to rack up 30 points, 450 total yards and 369 passing yards. Sure, they were okay against the run but that's only because Kentucky didn't have to run to score. The Cats threw three interceptions and the Gators still needed three over-times to put them over the top. Now, every team is capable of having a bad week. But I'm betting it's more of a sign of how Florida is still down and last season was no aberration. They'll need a flawless game this week to beat Alabama, whether it's Blake Sims or Jacob Coker throwing the rock. Alabama 35, Florida 17.



Dogs-Tigers
Dan Mullen has turned Mississippi State into a pretty good squad. They are no longer the pushover where SEC foes automatically penciled in a win when they showed up on the schedule. However, they aren't quite there yet and I'm not sure they'll ever get to the point where you will have to question whether or not they can beat LSU in Death Valley. LSU 27, Mississippi State 14.

Cocks-Dores
There is one final SEC match-up this week and it's merely filler. USC makes the trip to Nashville to play Vandy. No one expected the 'Dores post-Franklin would go into such a quick decline. Whether their backslide was caused by Franklin leaving the cupboard bare or they were winning almost single-handedly fueled by his charisma, it's arbitrary and meaningless at this point. The only thing that matters is the Dores are no longer a threat and the Gamecocks should blow their doors off. USC 42, VU 10.

As for the rest of the SEC, see the gifs below. The SEC brings the funk, and the fury.




It's morphin time!

*Actually, the move to 14 teams ruined any sense of history or rivalries. But hey, at least Vandy sucks again. /shrugs
