Week 5 SEC Thoughts


By: Matt Moscona


Alabama: Guess who’s back?  Back again.  Bama’s back.  Tell a friend.


Auburn: Offensive split versus San Jose State: 48 rushes, 10 passes.  That’s one way to limit interceptions.


Arkansas: Nice win for Bielema, but the Hogs have a long way to go to find four more wins for bowl eligibility.


Florida: It is amazing what a little confidence can do for a team.  Now, how do the Gators handle prosperity?  Back-to-back road games against Mizzou and LSU should provide the answer.


Georgia: Poor Mark Richt.


Kentucky: Whew!


LSU: The Tigers’ 2-minute offense at the end of the first half included as many Leonard Fournette rushes as Brandon Harris passes.  Their 2-minute offense is the running game!


Mississippi State: Dak Prescott didn’t pass on the NFL, the NFL passed on him.  We are seeing why.


Ole Miss: All that heavy lifting at Bama erased.


Missouri: If Maty Mauk is back this week, do you start him?


South Carolina: The HBC Farewell Tour is at home next week vs. LSU


Tennessee: Crushing home loss for Butch Jones, whose Vols are 0-2 in the SEC.  A home win vs. UGA Saturday is a must.


Texas A&M: Quietly 5-0 and 2-0 in SEC.  “Prove it” game in two weeks at home against the Tide.


Vanderbilt: Derek Mason said his team “grew up” rallying from a two-score deficit in the 4th quarter against Middle Tennessee.  Sadly, he doesn’t realize an SEC team should never be down two scores in the 4th quarter to Middle Tennessee.
