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

Auburn wrap-up: Bama starts with Kick Five, ends with ‘Tractor’ pull

By the time Derrick Henry strolled into the end zone to keep his streak of consecutive games with a touchdown alive, the 80th meeting of Alabama and Auburn was already decided.

Auburn knew it, Alabama knew it, the fans knew it, the rest of the college football world knew it. But Henry was going to leave one final image in the minds of those who will vote on the Heisman Trophy next month.

Henry broke several school and Alabama-Auburn game records Saturday evening, the most impressive being a record of endurance: Henry carried 46 times for 271 yards and a touchdown. Some teams don’t get 46 snaps in a game.

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.

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.

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.

LSU wrap-up: Bama not challenged in romp over Tigers

That Alabama defeated LSU in Bryant-Denny Stadium Saturday night to retake the reins of its own playoff destiny wasn’t really a surprise to those who are familiar with Alabama’s recent seasons.

What’s surprising is that the Crimson Tide wasn’t really challenged at all by an LSU team that came into the game ranked second in the nation behind the running of RB Leonard Fournette and a quarterback who had yet to throw an interception.

Alabama didn’t just beat LSU Saturday night. Alabama made it look … easy.
