SEC Picks,… Week 14


Rivals week,…. I missed picking the Ole Miss/Mississippi St game,… I watched most of it as both teams struggled. I would have picked Ole Miss to win though. However they lost 17-10. Ole Miss seems to play a Dr Jekyll/Mr Hyde type of game.


Florida St at Florida,… Home field advantage means absolutely nothing in this game. FSU is number 2 for a reason. They are good. Florida is horrible. Last week the Gators were blocking each other. I’m not joking. This game will not be close and Will Muschamp will probably return next year. Why I don’t know. Florida St 50 Florida 3


Georgia at Georgia Tech,… Aaron Murray the Bulldog qb is done for the season with an acl injury. Good kid, good qb,… just had trouble for whatever reason in the big games. Always the bridesmaid it seemed. This game could be close only because of injuries on the Georgia side. I don’t think the Yellow Jackets can stop Georgia’s running game. Georgia 31 Georgia Tech 17


Tennessee at Kentucky,…. Home field advantage again means nothing in this game as one team is terrible and the other is slightly worse. Kentucky, playing at home is the slightly worse team here and they simply have not gotten better as the year went on. Tennessee hasn’t really shown a lot either but they have shown that they don’t quit. Tennessee 31 Kentucky 14


Texas A&M at Missouri,…. Well guess what? Throw out the home field thingy here too. As bad as A&M’s rush defense is, the Missouri pass defense might be a tad worse. This could be a high scoring affair with the Tigers SEC Championship dreams going out the window. If Missouri losses, South Carolina wins the East. Texas A&M 48 Missouri 45


Clemson at South Carolina,… This should be a good close game. Although Clemson is the higher ranked team, South Carolina winning wouldn’t really be an upset. But I think Clemson pulls this one off,… Clemson 24 South Carolina 22


Wake Forest at Vandy,… With a win the ‘Dores  could be 8-4. Most years that record is reversed. Wake Forest isn’t playing well and won’t be going bowling either. Home team wins this one. Vandy 28 WF 13


Arkansas at LSU,… I never thought I’d see this game as a scrimmage game for LSU. LSU’s cheerleading squad could beat the Razorbacks. That’s how bad they are. LSU 60 Arky 3


Alabama at auburn,… First I want to say to any auburn fans/alum that I congratulate the tigers on a nice turnaround this season. I was hoping Oklahoma St would pass you in the polls since you both have the same record and the Pokes have the better strength of schedule,..but that wasn’t to be. This Iron Bowl has national championship hopes for only one team. Alabama. auburn is mired behind 2 undefeated teams that should not lose.

On paper though, auburn simply does not look to be competitive with Alabama. This isn’t a paper game though. This is the best rival game in America. Crowd noise in Jordon-Hare will be absolutely deafening at times and will present a challenge to the Bama offense. But Bama has “been here before” and shouldn’t be intimidated.  Experience will come into play. Alabama is a double digit favorite to win. Some don’t see it that way but 10 points is double digits. A ten point win is still a close game,… but for some reason I just don’t see 10,… I see 21. Bama is just that much better in my opinion. I may have to eat crow after being that bold,… but hey, its all in fun. Roll Tide Roll!! Alabama 38 auburn 17
