Well its New Years Eve and the SEC teams are finally starting their bowling for this season.
Gotta say its been interesting with the coaching shuffle that's going on, and teams that were supposed to be on top crashing in the dust.
As for UT stinking it up bigtime this year, don't worry, JBL - Bama hired a fresh-faced young coach with connections in the pros not long ago and things worked out just fine in the end - after we fired him and brought Saban on board. At least y'all have your full compliment of scholarships and no bowl bans in the forseeable future.
UGA did OK though its a sign of pretty high expectations when a "down" year has all of three losses.
For me it was an especially pleasant surprise that Bama came through with a 12-1 season, and even had the lead taking FL into the 4th quarter of the SECCG. Looks like things are definitely looking up for the Tide and it'll sure raise the bar for next season. Hopefully Saban can bring in a good crop of 'croots again and start the cycle of reloading rather than rebuilding.
Here's to Vandy, LSU, SC, UGA, KY, Ol Miss, Bama and the UF representing the SEC this year by pounding their opponents and running the table in the bowls.
Good luck guys,
