*REPUBLISHED VERSION BASED ON THE NURSE's VERBAL ASSAULT*
1. Tennessee-Fulmer gets back on top the East with what may be his last chance. Tennessee will replace the recievers and Ainge will toss for 3000 yards and 20 TD's. They beat the pants off Georgia in Knoxville as well as Alabama and Florida along the way. They won't be undefeated as UTK always drops one somewhere.
2. Georgia-They are a joke in the east until the beat Florida. Period bu this is the year. Fat Matt has the best arm in the SEC, lets see if he can use it behind a juco offensive line. The defense will be rebuilt and Auburn always runs on Georgia...and its in Athens and Auburn always wins in Athens. UGA goes as far as their O-line takes them.
3. Florida-Word out of Gainesvegas is that the coaches are worried about Tebow's slow release. Defenses will stack the box until he proves he can throw downfield. No matter of misdirection will work if 8-9 are chasing from all angles. Defense? What defense? Derrick Harvy is all that is left. Gators lose 3...maybe even to FSU in G-ville to wrap the season.
4. South Carolina-How many freshmen will SOS play? Tons and he will throw the ball all day with 3-4-5 wide sets. Tebow runner up Chris Smelley will even see time and Blake will get in another fight with a bouncer and lose. Defense will be good as Jasper Brinkley returns and he had twice as many tackles as anyone else last year. Actually, he was the defense. And he wore #52.
5. Kentucky-Andre Woodson is back and that is all that matters. If he can keep his mind this year, the Cats might even beat Tennessee and challenge for Atlanta. We shall see if they have the D to support the O it is back to B-ball on grass for Kentucky. Any early losses and basketball season starts earlier for Billy Gillespie & Co.
6. Vanderbilt-Earl Little is it. Best reciever on the league on the second worst team. Who cares?
1. Auburn-Can Brandon Cox stay healthy because the rest of the weapons are in place? Can an offensive line gel to protect the most brittle QB in the land? If so, then Auburn's offense could climb back to the top of the SEC scoring stats with a quickness. The defense might be the best Tubs has ever had with Q returning to play a lil stand up DE. The farther we get away from last season, the more amazed I am at the job that DC Muschamp did with his defense. They won games against LSU and Florida almost single handedly. Again, this could be the best Auburn defense in a while. AU wins 10+ a road upset at LSU or Florida. The scariest games are actually the first two at home. And of course they paste Bama, again!
2. LSU-Auburn gets the nod over LSU simply because of the experienced QB. Running roughshed over Miami in the Peach Bowl for Matt Flynn is not enough. The Tigers are stacked with athletes and a great defense. The Q is whether Les Miles can manage not to screw it up.
3. Arkansas-Nuttcase staves off the attempted assasination of the Springdale 5 to save his job and Broyles is leaving. How can life get any better for him? If he wins as he is allegedly still on the hot seat in Fayetteville. However, he still has 5 and a Dick at QB. We shall see if the defense can rebuild after losing their soul to the NFL.
4. Ole Miss-The light goes off for Brent Schaeffer this year as he becomes a mini-Vick(college edition not Falcons). The big Q is how does Ole Miss replace their amazing linebackers from the last few years? The Rebels win a few games they are not suppose to and beat Bama.
5. Missy State-Beats the hell out of Bama by 40!
6. Alabama-Nick Satan rolls into town and not much changes other than pissing off the world. Can Alabama be even more hated now? The answer is yes, as the people who name their sons after Bammer legends will run Nick to Lake Burton in a few years. Seriously, he averages 2.75 years at a school and will not deliver a NC to Tuscaloosa. Put that in your pipe and smoke it! Alabama will win more games this year, but not many. JP and the top two recievers return on offense, but that is it. Did they really want the o-line to come back? Defense will be anchored by the secondary but it won't matter since they will be tackling runners who break through the front seven and not defending passes. Bama's D-line was decimated by departures and will be run on this year....plenty. The 3-4 defense is conducive to blitzing and confusion, not stopping the run. Bama wins 2 if they are lucky. Saban run out of town by December!
Auburn beats Tennessee in a rematch of 2004 to go the Sugar Bowl.
