This week in the SEC: Title plans keep getting wrecked by road rage

By Chris DePew TideFans.com staff Feb. 9, 2016 Way back in the stone ages, when watching Southeastern Conference basketball mostly meant channel surfing to find the Jefferson-Pilot syndication package, the late Joe Dean Sr. had a theory on how to read the SEC standings in light of the difficulty of winning on the road. Dean’s […]

Rating the 2016 SEC recruiting classes

The addition of Jamar King at the last moment brought Alabama up to a rating of “Excellent” in the “Needs Filled” category; otherwise, it would have been hard to rank the Crimson Tide No. 1 in the country overall over Florida State. Alabama, over the past few years, has finished with at least one position group’s worth of signees somewhere to be called best-in-class; in 2016, Alabama did it for at least one position group and maybe as many as three. Alabama got the nation’s best linebacker haul, picking up three 10.0-rated prospects on Signing Day: Ben Davis, Lyndell Wilson and Terrell Hall. But Alabama also was in the running for best OL class, headed by Jonah Williams

Comments Off on This week in the SEC: Almost halftime, so let’s check the highlights

Player of the half-year: Tyler Ulis, Kentucky – The 5-foot-9 sophomore point guard is the glue keeping the mercurial Wildcats together. His statistics (16.1 points, 6.2 rebounds per game) don’t capture the whole story of the energy he brings to the lineup, the superior decisions he makes and the grit he shows racking up more minutes than John Calipari would like.

By Chris DePew TideFans.com staff Jan. 26, 2016 The SEC has been asking for a showcase event to prove it belongs in the ranks of the elite basketball conferences. Ready or not, it gets its wish Saturday. The Big 12-SEC Challenge takes place for the third time, but feels like a new creation. Where previous […]

Comments Off on This Week In The SEC: Suddenly no one’s afraid of big bad Big Blue

By Chris DePew TideFans.com staff Jan. 19, 2016 Kentucky is in fine shape for the conference race, or it least it would be in the ACC. Back in the Southeastern Conference though, the No. 23 Wildcats are mired in the middle of the pack with a 3-2 record. Big Blue Nation is in a state […]

Comments Off on This Week In The SEC: The S.S. Commodore is now a plague ship

By Chris DePew TideFans.com Staff Jan. 12, 2016 Everything and everybody said this was Vanderbilt’s year. After three straight years of NCAA Tournament misses, the Commodores were a trendy preseason Top 25 pick, a consensus top three pick in the SEC and a potential threat to Kentucky’s designs on back-to-back conference crowns. With virtually everyone […]

SEC Previews and Predictions: Week 13

As we head into the last full week of the season, the Predictions Dept. is capping off a decidedly mediocre year. Too many teams devolved into erratic messes, and then there were the outright – and shocking – collapses at LSU and Auburn. For the final slate of games, most of which are rivalry tilts, Florida-Florida State is arguably the biggest game in regards to the strength of the teams involved, but Alabama-Auburn and Ole Miss-Mississippi State are the games with the most on the line.

SEC Previews and Predictions: Week 12

The Predictions Dept. couldn’t follow up two solid weeks with a third, as upsets by Arkansas and Vanderbilt conspired to ruin its record in Week 11. This week, LSU and Ole Miss is the most important game, as LSU would lock up the SEC West for Alabama with a victory over the Rebels. But almost as intriguing is watching to see whether a self-destructing Texas A&M team has trouble with a Vanderbilt squad still – for the moment – chasing bowl eligibility.

SEC Previews and Predictions: Week 11

The Predictions Dept. might have lost two games last week, but there are no tears being shed over the result of the Ole Miss-Arkansas game. Alabama again has the SEC’s game of the week, this time against Mississippi State, but Arkansas-LSU and Georgia-Auburn will provide enough entertainment value to tune in.
