Philosophers say fighting fire with fire will leave the entire world in ashes and they are probably right.

On the other hand, it can make for a very entertaining football game.

That’s the promise, at least, offered by Alabama and LSU as they meet in the biggest game of the year in the SEC. Both offenses have been slowed slightly along the way but any interruption in the outpouring of points has been short and temporary. Will there be 100 points scored at Bryant-Denny Stadium on Saturday? Probably not. But there will certainly be fireworks.

The moment of truth for Tua’s ankle is just about to arrive — and so many other answers maybe forthcoming as well.

Ed Orgeron’s team hasn’t had this much confidence about beating Alabama since last year. (To be fair, the offense is better.)

Something still doesn’t seem quite right with Georgia’s offense but Kirby Smart has built a salty defense, to no one’s surprise.

Georgia was the better team last Saturday but doesn’t it seem sometimes as if Dan Mullen overthinks things?

If Auburn had Clemson’s 2019 schedule, it would be undefeated and headed for the College Football Playoff. Food for thought.

Having survived Murderer’s Row 1 on their schedule, the Aggies have an off-week before closing with three more tough games — and a chance to disrupt the SEC’s playoff chances.

The schedule has been grueling but South Carolina’s defense has improved to a point where they could be pesky for … Clemson? Well, maybe Appalachian State.

Surely Mizzou couldn’t throw the East back into chaos by beating Georgia? More likely, the Tigers will keep the chaos in-house.

Santa Claus is coming to town. Well, Arkansas is coming which is more or less the same thing.

Kylin Hill rushed for 234 yards at Arkansas and is probably the most underappreciated back in the league — in part because of MSU’s inconsistent offense.

Amazingly, UT now seems likelier to make a Bowl game than not. Credit to Jeremy Pruitt for that (unless the Vols lose to Vandy again).

John Rhys Plumlee would be the perfect quarterback if they would just outlaw the forward pass again.

Saved from the basement by Arkansas, but with further quarterback uncertainty, there is no upward mobility.

There was no sadder coach in America when Willie Taggart was fired by Florida State than Chad Morris. Not because they are BFF’s but because once the door opens on firing second-year coaches, it’s easier for other schools to follow.
