    UT is the number one “Everything School” in the SEC

    I just want to know what sports is Alabama so terrible at? The rest of it doesn't surprise me that much, but I thought Bama was much better at other sports.

    Proposed new SEC schedule, who does UT get?

    I'm in favor of 3 permanent rivals and rotating the rest. 3 should be Bama, Kentucky, and Vandy. I know Vandy and Kentucky are not as good as Florida, but those rivalries are much older. I personally view the Bama and UK rivalries as the most important. Vandy not so much, but who would Vandy's...

    Bama’s past is littered with cheating and dishonorable tactics

    All the SEC programs are "dirty" (except maybe Vandy), but that's also why it's so ridiculous for Saban to be moralizing on this subject. It's like Bobby Petrino lecturing people on infidelity. People say NIL is going to ruin college football, but I'm 100% i the opposite camp. There's always...

    Saban Lashes Out at A&M - Bama is a NIL Dinosaur

    Poor Saban. Now that everyone can pay players legally, he doesn't have a "paying-under-the-table and getting-away-with-it" advantage.

    Dumbest anti-SEC argument out there

    Just follow some Big 10 people on Twitter and you'll constantly hear about how the SEC is overrated. Heard it all through bowl season last year when a few SEC teams struggled. What's rarely noted is that it's typically something like the SEC's 10th best team playing some other conferences' 1st...

    Dumbest anti-SEC argument out there

    It's almost always from a Big 10 fan; Big 10 has Little Brother Syndrome.

    Dan Mullen is now a high school coach

    That Samford win might be the "worst win" in college football history. Giving up 52 points not merely to a lower-level school, but a BAD lower-level school. That would've arguably been the biggest upset in CFB history if it happened.

    Dan Mullen is now a high school coach

    It's difficult to think of any football coach whose stock has fallen more in the pats 2 years than Pruitt. No college wants to touch him. All he could muster up last year was an Analyst job in the NFL for a bad coach. Unlike Mullen, who's probably just coaching high school for fun, Pruitt...

    Dan Mullen is now a high school coach

    Still would've been better than Pruitt. He's a good coach, but honestly think he was burnt out at Florida. He could easily get a P5 OC job or even another HC job, but feels like he needs a few years off. He's set for life and coaching HS is probably more fun than coaching a major SEC program...

    Gary Patterson - “Tennessee didn’t think I could handle the Big Stage”

    Mark Richt was 63-29 (.685) from 2009 - 15 (the relevant timeframe), while Patterson was 70 - 20 (.778), and a healthy chunk of Richt's wins came against bad Tennessee teams. Patterson coached at a program that was at a huge disadvantage in terms of resources while Richt coached at arguably the...

    Mark Stoops on “NIL Recruiting”

    I don't think they'll be a national title contender soon, but I could see NIL potentially making them the King of the Big 10 West. Iowa, Iowa State, and Wisconsin have overtaken their niche. But the Big 10 will always feel like the most imbalanced conference to me. Ohio State, Penn State, and...

    Gary Patterson - “Tennessee didn’t think I could handle the Big Stage”

    He definitely would've beaten Richt. He did better at TCU than Richt did at Georgia and Georgia is a much easier job with an abundance of resources. Saban and Meyer are two of the best coaches this century, so I don't know if he would've beaten them, but so what? That's a pretty high standard...

    Gary Patterson - “Tennessee didn’t think I could handle the Big Stage”

    Patterson would have definitely come. It's so much easier to compete for championships at Tennessee than TCU; particularly at that time. Gundy at Okie State is a different situation. Gundy is from Oklahoma. He's an Okie State lifer. He was a star QB there. Him and his brother are both legends...

    Mark Stoops on “NIL Recruiting”

    Suddenly the Kentucky football job doesn't seem so great. I'm one of the few that thinks NIL improves college football. Not just that "it's better for the athletes"; that it actually makes college football better. One of the reasons some traditional powers have struggled is that the huge TV...
