The Florida Gators are still suffering from the Georgia loss, but aren't out of the picture. Florida State is the only real opponent left for the Gators. With Sharrif Floyd and Dominique Easley, the Gators have a great defense - but penalties, turnovers, and a lack of consistency will be their downfall.
Georgia is rolling along after the beating they took from South Carolina. Aaron Murray has finally stepped up and Jarvis Jones, Alec Ogletree, and Bacarri Rambo have become the defense the media projected. This team has more future NFL stars than any other team in the SEC! Let's hope UGA doesn't screw this up. I've said that Auburn would win a game that they shouldn't. That upset will take place when they play the Bulldogs this Saturday at home.
Overrated is the best way to describe Notre Dame. After watching the Pitt Panthers game, Notre Dame has become a one trick pony with Everett Golson. SEC defenses would've knocked Golson out of the game. I don't see ND making it through the season undefeated. Pitt gave them the game on a silver platter. Watch out for a slip up on the road against either Boston College or USC.
The Kansas State Wildcats have shocked the football world. Collin Klein should win the Heisman Trophy, plus K-State will stay undefeated after their conference championship game is over. Even with all this, the Wildcats will be left out of the title game when the smoke clears.
Alabama will have a tough time against Texas A/M, but they will prevail in the end. The LSU game showed that AJ McCarron can win when the pressure is on. Neither Florida nor Georgia will not have enough depth to win a conference game against the Tide. One important note: LSU exposed Alabama's weaknesses on defense.
I have taken shots at every top team in the country this year, but I've finally found a real team that I can praise...The Oregon Ducks. They are the most dominant team in the country. This offense is so explosive that even an SEC defense couldn't slow them down. With De'Anthony Thomas and Marcus Mariota, Oregon will roll over any team that gets in their way...yes, even Bama!
Someone please explain this to me. You can have a stronger schedule and still be ranked behind someone that had it easy peasy? Let's say a boy named Bama beats up a kindergartner out by the monkey bars and now he's ranked the #1 bully. Meanwhile, little Donald takes out the neighborhood street gang and he's only ranked #3?
When all this smoke clears, is it the journey or the destination that matters?
Guess it depends on who you ask. Ask your mommy, she'll say the journey. Ask Ricky Bobby in Talladega Nights, and just like any Alabamian, he'll reply, "Second place is the first loser".
