Around the SEC

The University of Georgia Bulldogs are once again SEC East champs. We will most likely (we will) play the LSU Tigers in Atlanta in a couple of weeks.

Prior to that massive meeting, there are two more weeks left of the regular season, so let’s check-in on the comings and goings of the SEC.

Here’s what’s happening around the SEC:

  • Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa suffered a season ending hip injury in the Tide’s win against Mississippi State. He underwent a successful surgery on the hip earlier this week. He’ll likely still go pro, ending his collegiate career. We of course wish Tua a speedy and complete recovery, and hopefully he kills it in the NFL.
  • Vanderbilt head coach Derek Mason will return to coach the Commodores in 2020. Despite the poor season, Mason is an excellent coach who has a three-game winning streak against Tennessee. He can still make that it four straight this year.
  • Florida quarterback Nick Sproles has entered the transfer portal. You know, I’d think we did a poor job of recruiting if guys were coming in and then immediately walking out the door…
  • LSU has opened as the largest favorite in SEC history ahead of their showdown with Arkansas. Vegas has the Tigers as a 44-point favorite, eclipsing the 43-point line they had for Florida when they took on Vanderbilt in 1996.

Until next time… GO DAWGS!!!
