Highlights of the Razorbacks beating the #17 Tigers 17-0. The Arkansas defense would hold LSU to a 123 yards of offense as they picked up their first shutout since 2006. The cold weather effected the Tigers. Arkansas faces Ole Miss this weekend.
LSU has a chance to play spoiler but it didn’t happen as they took Alabama to the wire and lost in OT, 20-13. Boy did the LSU Crowd roast Paul Finebaum at the SEC Nation on saturday in Baton Rouge. As a College Game Day fellow said on the sidelines after the game, Alabama and LSU are very young. The main thing is Alabama plays Mississippi State this weekend and that is probably gonna be the best game this season so far. Expect Dak Prescott ready for this game, and the Blake Sims to have a good game as well. I will say Mississippi State has the best front in the Nation on Defense, and will put pressure on Sims the whole day. I wonder if Sims flicker of the wrist passes will work against State’s secondary. I guess we will have to wait and see. I do see a high scoring game from both teams and not to much running of the football. If the Alabama Front on defense does not contain the Dak attack on the ground it could be a long afternoon. Alabama has receivers on the outside who can keep pace with the score. Cooper will have to have a big day for Alabama to win, he will have to do better than 83 yards which he produce against LSU. I would say LSU secondary did a good job against Cooper, State will have to do the same. In the playoff race Alabama has to win saturday to remain in the playoff hunt, if State loses they will probably drop to no.4 and still be in the playoff hunt. Depending on if Alabama and State wins out after this game, win or lose, both of them could still end up in the playoffs…… Florida State and Oregon will win out and will be in the playoffs.
This saturday LSU had a bye week, and they are getting ready for the showdown with Alabama. In the picture we can see Freshman Leonard Fournette dragging the Ole Miss defender down the field. Being on the sidelines you could tell the Ole Miss defense was small just like the Kentucky Wildcats and LSU matchup really well against Ole Miss especially when it came to running the ball. LSU offensive line push Ole Miss front four all over the field, but the LSU line was very big so that was a gimme. As we know Ole Miss got knocked off by Auburn last night 34-31 and the receiver for Ole Miss got his leg broken trying to extend a catch that look like a touchdown, but the ball was let go and Auburn recovered the ball in the endzone. The playoff committee knew what is was doing when they put Ole Miss and Auburn in the top 4, because they knew someone was going to lose the game, so that meant someone was gonna dropout of the top 4, so now it seems that Auburn will jump Florida State since they beat no.3 Ole Miss on the road, I would be surprised if the committee doesn’t put Auburn ahead of the Noles. The Oregon Ducks should slide into the no.4 position, so you got Miss State who struggle with Arkansas at home and did win 17-10 sitting at no.1, and I would put Auburn at no.2, Florida State at no.3, and the Oregon Ducks at no.4, I guess you could put Alabama at no.5 but that won’t last long because LSU will knock off Alabama in Tiger Stadium, actually the Tigers owe Nicky a loss in Tiger Stadium. So there you have it football fans, and all the Georgia Fans thought they would be in the playoffs, just say I told you so, the SEC East is not that strong. I was impressed with Florida knocking off Georgia, especially with all the bulldog fans talking like they were gonna win the SEC Title and go to the playoffs and face Alabama in the finals……. well we all wake up and small the coffee, even Georgia Fans wake up.
If you were present for the LSU vs Kentucky Game saturday night you probably had no idea what the outcome of the game would be at Tiger Stadium. After the 1st quarter LSU went up 21-0 it’s gonna be along night for the kickoff returners for Kentucky. I was talking to a Lady Tiger Basketball player before kickoff, and I told her I think this is gonna be a repeat of the Manziel Texas AM vs LSU Game from last year, actually it was better.
I was amazed to see my prediction turnout more than normal, you could just tell their was something in the air that night for LSU Football in Tiger Stadium. The night was right for a LSU Blowout. I spoke to some Kentucky fans before the game and they were looking for their 1st victory in Tiger Stadium since 1998, and they were pretty positive about beating LSU. Well the LSU Football team had other ideas. Leonard Fournette started things off with a 3 yard plunge into the endzone, and then LSU held Kentucky’s offense and next thing you know it Tre Davious White took off for a 67 yard punt return, the whole Tiger Stadium went mad. If White, Magee and Fournette have big games against Ole Miss, that might be a recipe for victory for the Tigers this saturday for Home Coming and College Game Day coming to Baton Rouge,La.
Magee also scored a couple of touchdowns with 258 all purpose yards, wr Druval hauled in a td catch as well for 32 yards from qb Jennings. LSU qb Jennings managed the game really well, and the defense cam to play as Kentucky tried little screens the whole night. I thought to myself after the 15th screen by Kentucky picking up a few yards, they should throw the ball down the field, Kentucky even tried the Wildcat a few times, imagine that Kentucky running the Wildcat offense which picked up some yardage but no touchdowns.
I know Kentucky had a rough night, but sometimes it’s good to stick what you know, Basketball….. and leave the Football to the big boys in the SEC West. I am sure Kentucky hasn’t seen a team like LSU the whole year, yeah they are just one of the many teams in the SEC West. I am sure LSU was tired of being talked down too, like the ESPN announcers who predicted Kentucky to beat LSU, and the one of the analytist from the SEC Network picked the Wildcats as well.
The stage is getting set for one of the biggest rivalries with Ole Miss at no.3 in the nation coming to Tiger Stadium to play the Bayou Bengals, oh and College Game Day is coming, and Macklemore is gonna perform at halftime, and it’s Home Coming. The stars and the planets are lining up, and their is gonna be something special in Tiger Stadium Saturday Night. If I was a betting man I would have to put my money on LSU saturday to pull off the upset, besides Ole Miss, LSU owes you from last year, just the roles are reverse alittle……. I am sure Miles and the Tigers love playing the underdog in Tiger Stadium…… as the Joker said in Batman, and here we goooooooo .
Mississippi State is Making Believers Out of Everyone
As they are thumping Auburn 38 to 20, it looks like the A&M game all over again but in the rain. It has been raining the whole game for the State vs Auburn Game. Dak Prescott is doing it again with 3 tds on the day, and 350 total yards and there is still 11 minutes in the game. Every time Auburn tries to get back in the game Dak pulls off a 20 to 30 yard scamper. After this game all the doubters will be gone as Miss State will take over the no.1 spot in the Nation, they should leap frog ahead of Florida State for beating no.2 Auburn.
The Noles beat Syracuse but it’s not the same level of competition that the SEC West plays or for that matter the SEC. Like on the Paul Finebaum Show, the best teams are down south Paul…….. they are just plain better. I never seen anything like Miss State, it’s like Dak Prescott is a spitting image of Cam Newton, amazing, and you can’t bring him down with one tackler you usually need to or three players.
Arkansas is playing Bama, score 7-6 halftime. Georgia burried Missouri today 34-0, where were the Tigers from Missouri. More updates later.
Football fans we got some predictions today, I am sorry we have to end the Mississippi winnings today, I got Ole Miss and Miss State losing today and I got the Hogs beating Alabama. I know those are some big predictions, but Auburn is a very good team and Texas AM playing in front of the home crowd in College Station, Ole Miss does not have a chance. Last weekend was a great weekend for the Mississippi Schools but toto is home and Dorothy is back in Kansas, so lets wake up and smell the coffee. The reason why Alabama will lose today because of that huge offensive line that the Hogs have, the Alabama defense will have to face, not to mention the 2 talented Arkansas running backs coming out of the backfield…. with Collins and Williams coming out of the gates it’s even gonna be hard for Bama defense. I got some stats if Alabama allows the Hogs to rush for 275 yards the game is over, the Hogs will win, that is a done deal, and Bama will join LSU in the losing ranks, speaking of LSU they will win a close game in the Swamp, Muschamp has too much going down there, and he can’t control his players, Muschamp is like a sub teacher trying to control a classroom, in trying to control his team from off the field . I know there is a lot going own with LSU, but this will be one of the games that the Tigers will win. The Georgia vs Missouri game is a toss up but Chubbs will be in the back field for the Georgia Bulldogs., speaking of the Bulldogs they are up 20-0, not a good start for the tigers. Florida State is winning 24-6 over Syracuse but don’t expect much from the Seminoles this year because they are not playing ranked teams and the ACC is soft, even if the Noles make it to the playoffs don’t expect them to repeat because of the soft schedule, another report about Winston surfaces again. There you have it football fans and don’t worry too much about the Pac 12, Oregon showed it’s true colors again, although I liked Oregon in the playoffs, but probably not this year. The year is shaping up quite well, the SEC West is better than most conferences maybe all conferences, I never seen a group of teams in one side of the conference in a conference….. enjoy the football today.
The LSU Tigers are in a interesting place as they travel down to Gainesville to take on the gators, as we know the tigers lost to the tigers in Auburn, 41 to 7. It was a game where Brandon Harris got a chance to start and was only able to put up 7 pts with the offense. That was a pretty good Auburn team for sure, and probably not the same one LSU faced last year in Tiger Stadium where LSU rung their bell before Auburn went on a run and made it to the BCS Championship game before losing to Florida State. LSU had some woes on offense and defense against the Auburn Tigers and it was not a pretty site. A very interesting stat the LSU punter Keehn had more yards on punts than the offense 388 yards to 280 yards on total yards. You know the night is not going well when the punter is spending more time in the back field than the running backs. Things don’t get easier this week as they face Florida’s tough defense in the Swamp, even though LSU is favor by 1 point that’s not gonna matter too much. The Gators defense has been the bright spot of Florida’s football team this year. The freshman QB Harris for the gators came into the game to replace Driskel and helped Florida to a win over Tennessee 10-9 and then sunday morning the freshman was excused of a sexual assault towards a student on campus. The gators seem to be dealing with quite a few things with teammates fighting over shoes, throwing punches because someone thought their cleats were stolen. I am sure Muschamp is trying to get the team in order as they face LSU this saturday at 730pm eastern time. I am sure LSU has there own problems to deal with especially the offensive line giving Jennings or Harris time to throw the ball down the field. Interesting thing happen in the second half of the Auburn game Les Miles went ahead and put Jennings back in the game to replace Harris, with 3:38 left in the 3rd quarter and finish out the game for the Tigers. I think overall Jennings played well, even though the Auburn defense was very tough, Jennings did lead the tigers down inside the 5 with not too much time left in the 4th quarter left and the Auburn Defensive coach made it a point and told them don’t let the LSU score, interesting for sure, talk about keeping score, or tabs. I would give the nod to Jennings in the Florida game and I see LSU pulling out a close game in the Swamp.
Well, college football fans Ole Miss Rebels did the unthinkable yesterday, they came back and beat Alabama and the Crimson Tide are wondering what hit them. Bo Wallace threw 2 touchdowns in the 4th quarter to lead the rebels to a come from behind victory, and now are celebrating in Mississippi. Acutally I am sure the whole state of Mississippi is celebrating after ESPN’s own Danny Kanell predicted both Mississippi teams to lose and we would be back to normal, well it’s beyond normal of what took place this weekend, and I am sure Kanell is gonna watch what he says next time as a sports analyst and perhaps he can do some research on alittle college football before predicting a saturday of football. It’s okay Kanell, the boomer sooners lost, Oregon lost, Texas A&M lost, UCLA lost, and Bama lost, and I am sure you didn’t expect that….. Hotty Toddy. Let me give you alittle insight Kanell, this week Auburn Tigers has to go face Dak Prescott and the Miss State Bulldogs, well the Bulldogs will win that game as well. It might come down to the Egg Bowl this year, instead of the Iron Bowl to see who goes to the SEC Title Game, man, that’s a first. HOTTY TODDY
