Around the SEC

The season’s first month is in the books, and we’ve seen a lot of good (Bama, UGA, LSU, Auburn), a lot of bad (Arkansas, Vanderbilt), and a lot of ugly (Tennessee) thus far in the SEC. Let’s recap what’s happened in the league over the past week.

Here’s what’s happening around the SEC:

  • Tennessee LB Jeremy Banks was arrested in Knoxville, but what has grabbed headlines is the phone call Vols coach Jeremy Pruitt had with the arresting officer. In a season that has had many lowlights, this ranks right up there.
  • Bama has reclaimed the #1 spot in the latest rankings. The Tide do look like a juggernaut once again, but other teams have more impressive resumes – namely their in-state rival. And if Nick Saban wants to use take that as a slight and as motivation, then buddy, HNDawg has more power than he thought.
  • With Florida and Auburn meeting for the first time since 2011, the discussion of SEC conference scheduling has been brought back to the forefront. As much as I love winning 14 straight against the SEC East, maybe it’s time to shake things up.
  • PETA is calling for Mississippi State to retire their bulldog mascot, Jak, after he had a run-in with Auburn runningback JaTarvious Whitlow. Jak is fine after the incident, but these Auburn players really need to learn to stay away from SEC Bulldogs.

Until next time… GO DAWGS!!!
