The only thing that kept me from a perfect slate last week was my inkling that Tennessee might beat Alabama at night at their place. I would say I was wrong, but is picking against Alabama every really wrong? Is it? I even got the upset special. I think I'm up to four correct picks on those for the year. Anybody wanna buy any stock in the 'Blogle?
Last Week: 7-1
This Week: 0-0Overall: 62-17 (78.5%)
Kentucky at Missouri - The two SEC teams that Auburn may actually be able to beat without a miracle battle it out early Saturday morning. I'm not sure if Kentucky's better than expected performance against Georgia last week was due to them or the Dawgs, but I'm not buying it. Missouri, again without James Franklin, should be able to beat the Wildcats.
Missouri 27, Kentucky 17
Tennessee at South Carolina - There's scuttlebutt that Dooley is gone immediately following a loss to the Gamecocks. I guess we'll find out because that loss is definitely...
BEST OF MAXIM
Check out the video. Florida Gators’ head football coach Will Muschamp looked like a wild man as he yelled at Gators tight end Clay Burton during the Florida vs. Georgia SEC showdown. There was good reason. No. 10 Georgia upset No. 2 Florida, 17-9.
In advance of the "World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party," Gators fans took out an ad in the University of Georgia's student newspaper to engage in some smack talk.
On Saturday one of college football’s greatest traditions will once again play itself out.
The University of Georgia will meet the University of Florida on neutral ground for what is widely considered as the Cocktail Bowl.
Having attended the affair, it can be said will all sincerity that the Cocktail Bowl is a southern slice of sin unlike any other.
Although it’s a tradition...
The injury to Jelani Jenkins tested the depth of the Gators at linebacker early this season, but with him healthy, the Florida linebacker unit is playing better. Jenkins’ injuries forced freshman Antonio Morrison and redshirt sophomore Michael Taylor to step up. With the depth improved, the Gators also have a middle linebacker that Will Muschamp thinks is one of the best in the nation.
Omar Hunter’s high school goal posts are rooted less than 50 miles from Georgia’s Sanford Stadium. But the Buford, Ga. native said he's never been a Bulldog fan. Hunter has logged nearly five years beneath a Gators jersey and squaring up against his home state’s glory team. Saturday, the senior will tackle the Georgia squad for the last time — a journey he said has gone by fast.
It may have been the biggest of turning points for Florida junior cornerback Jaylen Watkins. A year ago, in the Georgia game, Watkins was victimized by a fourth down pass for a touchdown in a game that was decided by less than a touchdown. Watkins spent a while early in the year at safety, was just getting a little more comfortable at corner, but this moment changed everything.
