The legend of Johnny Manziel continues to grow by leaps and bounds. Manziel’s meteoric rise from being a three-star recruit to potential Heisman finalist is close to outdoing that of the great Tim Tebow, in my opinion.
Manziel did what some felt couldn’t be done, by driving the Alabama defense crazy and giving them fits. With that, Texas A&...
It took a four overtime loss to Missouri to seal his fate but late last night Wes Rucker, senior writer at govols247.com, tweeted that it's “Not a question of 'if,' but 'when' on Dooley. Don't think they'll announce anything until after a Vandy loss or after UK game, win or lose.”
That's right, Derek Dooley and his patented orange pants will...

Florida quarterback Jeff Driskel came out of Saturday’s win over Louisiana with an ankle sprain. He sat on the trainer’s table while being evaluated and was taken to the Florida locker room soon after that. Florida coach Will Muschamp said on Monday morning that he doesn’t expect Driskel to play this weekend against Jacksonville State. His status is still up in the air.
Alabama's perfect season came to an end at the hands of Johnny Manziel and Texas A&M. Was it enough to end the Crimson Tide's run atop this poll? Here are this week's SEC Power Rankings:

Jacoby Brissett took the first snap of Florida's season, then headed to the bench.
He's pretty much been there ever since.
But with Jeff Driskel doubtful for Saturday's game against FCS opponent Jacksonville State, Brissett likely will get another chance under center for the seventh-ranked Gators (9-1).
"There's no question, I think it's a great example...

Now it's out of Alabama's hands.
The fourth-ranked Crimson Tide have not only lost that aura of invincibility that seemed to surround Nick Saban's team through eight games and the final two minutes against LSU, but surrendered control of their fate in the national title derby. No. 9 Texas A&M made sure of that with Johnny Manziel's dazzling performance and a...
