Ten Games that Will Shape the SEC | Team Speed Kills
This is actually an oldie and a link which we've visited before but, in case you missed it, here it is again. I would argue that this weekend's game, while certainly not as significant as it could be, is still one of the pivotal matchups of the season.
Snead wants his shirt back | AL.com
Yes, I too thought it said Snead wanted his "shit" back upon my initial glance. Apparently Greg McElroy, in all of his suburban Dallas douchedom, stole Jevan Snead's Manning Passing Academy t-shirt. The article makes a passing and weak reference to some sort of "rivalry" between the two guys because their high schools played eachother in a 7-on-7 scrimmage or something just as insignificant.
Nutt and Saban Share Respect | Rick Cleveland
I had always heard that Nutt and Saban had a mutual respect for one-another and I had always heard the SEC urban legend of sorts surrounding Saban's supposed recommendation for Nutt to take over LSU upon his departure, but Cleveland confirms it:
Close friends of both men confirm (the aforementioned hiring recommendation) and say Saban recommended Nutt because he always thought Nutt's Arkansas teams were the most well-prepared teams he faced at LSU.
Eh, considering the source, I'm still not 100% sure, but whatever. It's a good read.
Bubble hasn't burst | ESPN
Chris Low and ESPN, in the spirit of the ever so prudent move of "covering your ass before anything has even happened" reminds everyone that everything's not yet lost for the Rebels. Of course, Low is the same guy who picked Ole Miss to win the West a few weeks before jumping on the "Ole Miss is overrated" bandwagon immediately upon the South Carolina loss. Yes, I'm still peeved by all of this and no I'm not going to grow up and get over it.
