COLLEGE FOOTBALL: SEP 04 ETSU at Vanderbilt Photo by Matthew Maxey/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images

The SEC is good. The ACC is bad. The Alliance is weird. We’re in week 2 of the college football seasons, but the takes are in midseason form.

Now in this here article, we solely focus on the best conference in the land. The slate of games for the SEC may not be as appetizing as week 1, but it does provide several teams a chance to either confirm beliefs after the first week or prove that the opening weekend was just an anomaly.

Here’s what’s happening around the SEC:

· After graduate assistant Zeb Noland played very well for South Carolina in week 1, it appears starter Luke Doty will be ready to make his season debut for the Gamecocks this weekend against East Carolina. I’m truly intrigued how this quarterback situation plays out in Columbia, especially with a trip to Athens next weekend.

· Just prior to being embarrassed by East Tennessee State, Vanderbilt apparently removed play-calling duties from offensive coordinator David Raih. Instead, passing game coordinator Joey Lynch was the one calling plays in the Commodores’ 23-3 defeat to the FCS school. Things are just fine on West End.

· Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin had some choice words directed towards the Big Ten officiating crew after his team routed Louisville. The Rebels were flagged for multiple targeting calls, sparking Kiffin’s comments. Hopefully Kiffin recovers from COVID-19 soon and can provide us with more great quotes from the sidelines moving forward.

SEC > ACC and don’t let anyone forget it. GO DAWGS!!!
