Another mixed weekend for the SEC, highlighted by LSU’s win over Texas, chased by a slug of corn from a jar on Rocky Top, where the hits just keep on coming. The Vols host Chattanooga this weekend so surely …. surely … not.

The Crimson Tide wasn’t perfect but the flaws are correctable for all the consternation.

The Tigers were very impressive in their win at Austin. Best quarterback play they’ve had since Jamarcus? Rohan? Bert Jones?

Not really a demotion, but I would honestly take LSU on a neutral field, so…

The Bo Nix love on the Plains is understandable but at the end of the day, it’s all about that defense for AU.

Hard to ding a team too much for losing at Clemson but the remaining schedule (see all teams above them in this week’s Power Poll) could make the Aggies the best 7-5 team ever.

The Gators (like Alabama) aren’t running the ball as they’d hoped and that puts a lot of weight on Feleipe Franks’ shoulders in SEC play.

One of several SEC teams that lost a quarterback in Week 2, MSU turned to freshman Garrett Shrader who is 60 years younger than Bill Snyder. I know Snyder doesn’t coach Kansas State any more, but it seemed worth mentioning as K-State comes to Starkville Saturday for a matchup of 2-0 teams that is waaaaay under the radar.

I thought Mizzou would survive the bad scheduling decision to go to Laramie. Altitude, yes, but the Tigers also has turnovers and poor tackling and those will beat you even in a bathysphere.

The Wildcats slip down even though they continued their domination of the MAC part of the schedule. But UK lost starting quarterback Terry Wilson and that is going to be difficult to overcome.

Freshman quarterback Ryan Hilinski had an impressive debut against Charleston Southern but th
is week, the training wheels come off.

The Rebels bounces back from a bad weekend in Memphis (haven’t we all?) and should go to 2-1.

Vandy edges up for playing (and losing to) a second Power Five team but this doesn’t look like a team that is going anywhere but down from here.

Quarterback switch (to Nick Starkel) ahead because why not? Colorado State is a winnable game if Starkel sparkles.

The jokes are easy but Jeremy Pruitt’s job is very hard. If the Vols are in the “finding out who wants to be a Vol” phase, it’s going to take years, not weeks.
