Tom Luginbill’s analysis is about as deep as a kiddie pool.

Tom Luginbill’s analysis is about as deep as a kiddie pool.

Tom Luginbill’s hot take, ladies and gentlemen: One national college football analyst doesn’t believe Nick Fitzgerald and Mississippi State are done with their upsets any time soon. ESPN’s Tom Luginbill expects Mississippi State to continue winning this week at Georgia and said so during his appearance with Frank Frangie on ‘The Frangie Show’ on 1010XL […]

Tale of the tape, quarterback edition

Well now, doesn’t this suggest a few things… Here's a look at the QB battle between Georgia and Mississippi State… pic.twitter.com/4dPUN67t1c — CFB Film Room (@CFBFilmRoom) September 21, 2017 Okay, if you want a list: MSU has even less of a downfield passing threat than does Georgia. Fitzgerald is a less effective quarterback when the […]

I got an email from a faithful reader pointing me to a vlog published by Matt Wyatt, a former Mississippi State quarterback.  If you are interested in seeing some Xs and Os before Saturday’s game, it’s definitely worth your attention this week.  I’ll give you two examples. Here’s his breakdown of several plays from Georgia’s […]

The Bulldog Spread

The Bulldog Spread

One think I noticed watching the LSU-Mississippi State replay is that Dan Mullen has incorporated certain elements of Big 12 offense — Mike Leach’s wide splits on the offensive line and Art Briles’ extreme receiver spreads — into what he’s doing now.  Take a look at this clip of the first play of the game. […]

This week in Dawgrading

This week in Dawgrading

Dennis Dodd is canonizing Dan Mullen after the LSU game. Jeffrey Simmons has been named SEC Defensive Lineman of the Week two weeks in a row. And the media is starting to measure the height of Mississippi State’s ceiling. If Georgia wins Saturday night, how much air do you think is let out of the […]

Here’s another good question.

Here’s another good question.

Georgia's Lorenzo Carter has been on a tear the past two weeks. Can he keep this pace up for the rest of the season? pic.twitter.com/P3rq6j9TaP — PFF College Football (@PFF_College) September 19, 2017 It sure would be nice for Georgia’s chances.   It would also be nice for Carter’s draft status.  Maybe he should look at […]

When you put it that way…

When you put it that way…

Matt Brown makes a compelling case as to why the expectation that Georgia should win the SEC East isn’t an unreasonable one. Basically, Florida and Tennessee proved last weekend that both are a mess, it’s too early to rate Kentucky and Vanderbilt as divisional powers, and… It seems clear already that Georgia is capable of […]

Butch: “We live in a week-to-week season, a week-to-week life. What’s different in today’s world is all the clutter and distractions." — Wes Rucker (@wesrucker247) September 20, 2017 Profound.  When he retires from coaching, he ought to teach philosophy.

Jim Chaney’s juggling act

Jim Chaney’s juggling act

Far be it from me to suggest that Georgia’s offensive coordinator is having a boffo year at the box office, but I will say that I think he’s doing a better job than many of you give him credit for doing.  Mainly that’s because he’s still working his way around a couple of serious personnel […]

Great moments in broadcast planning

Did you know that Ole Miss and Baylor are scheduled to meet in the 2020 AdvoCare Texas Kickoff?  That has all the earmarks of a real classic, assuming there are enough scholarship players left at both schools to suit up. Speaking of which, that could lead to a scenario where the Black Bear Rebels (or […]

The 2018 SEC football schedules

The 2018 SEC football schedules

Georgia’s schedule next season hasn’t exactly been greeted with much enthusiasm.  But, as Brett McMurphy points out, it’s pretty par for the course, conference-wise. The SEC formula: Why does the SEC usually have so many bowl eligible teams? Well, besides they have a lot of quality teams, they have mastered the best scheduling model in […]

A little more spring in Nick Chubb’s step

A little more spring in Nick Chubb’s step

It’s more apparent with every passing game, but this is a welcome development. Georgia RB Nick Chubb has looked good on 44 carries so far in 2017 – forcing 15 missed tackles on those carries. pic.twitter.com/rDZsU0jzkp — PFF College Football (@PFF_College) September 18, 2017 That’s actually a better pace than Chubb set his freshman season.  […]

Today, in be careful what you wish for

Evidently ours isn’t the only fan base that’s having issues with the in-game experience. After the Gamecocks lost 23-13 to Kentucky last Saturday in their first home game of the season, a host of issues popped up from the team’s fans, including water pressure issues in Williams-Brice Stadium, long lines at concession stands and the […]

When Houston Nutt’s lawyer speaks, Ole Miss listens.

The significance of this Wall Street Journal story concerning the allegation that coaches were using burner phones to contact recruits in ways that may not have been exactly kosher isn’t the truth of the allegation itself — the AD didn’t uncover any evidence that it occurred. It’s that the school quickly jumped through hoops to […]

Today, in one thing leads to another

The news that the Gusmeister thinks his punting game needs a little retooling reminded me of this development from June: Head coach Kirby Smart has hired former Auburn assistant Scott Fountain to join his staff with the Bulldogs. Fountain’s wife posted the news on Facebook and Fountain’s Twitter handle was changed to show he has […]

About the LSU – Mississippi State game

Before the season’s start — hell, before last weekend — I wasn’t expecting LSU-MSU to have a big impact on shaping the 2017 SEC season.  Instead, the decisive margin of victory has led to Orgeron’s coaching (and his ballyhooed coordinators, for that matter) coming into question again and Mississippi State being hailed as a potential […]

Down and out in Gainesville, Florida

The credit card case that’s surrounded a number of Gator football players appears to have legs. The nine University of Florida football players who have been suspended indefinitely by the school for misuse of school funds, are also under investigation for credit card fraud, by two separate police departments in the Gainesville area, relating to […]
