SEC Previews and Predictions: Week 2

All things considered, a 10-3 week wasn’t a bad start for The Predictions Dept., given the level of craziness SEC teams displayed in some of their respective openers. The biggest upset, by rank, was Wisconsin’s surprise victory over LSU that put Les Miles back on the hotseat. But South Alabama beating Mississippi State may have been even more shocking. The quality of games this week takes a nosedive, as it almost always does in Week 2, with the Tennessee-Virginia Tech NASCAR crossover at Bristol Motor Speedway probably taking the prize as the most interesting spectacle.

Comments Off on This week in the SEC: Teams in the middle forever blowing bubble chances

By Chris DePew TideFans.com staff Feb. 23, 2016 A week ago, bubble banter was sprouting up across the SEC.

Comments Off on This week in the SEC: Alabama’s suddenly making bracket racket again

By Chris DePew TideFans.com staff Feb. 16, 2016 March in Tuscaloosa used to mean more than spring football.

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

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.

Comments Off on Alabama 63, Tennessee 57: Crimson Tide rediscovers offense in nick of time

By Chris DePew TideFans.com staff Jan. 26, 2016 On a night when a miserable start and a malfunctioning offense threatened to send not only the game out of reach but possibly Alabama’s season spiraling out of control, the Crimson Tide clawed its way back for a wild 15-point comeback, downing Tennessee 63-57 at Coleman Coliseum.
