Tennessee preview: Vols’ new process still has training wheels attached

Because time marches on no matter how much we would like it to stand still for moments both great and small, there will always be an interest taken in young coaches – especially those with ties to Nick Saban – who look like potential future coaches for The University of Alabama.

SEC Preview and Predictions: Week 8

Two major upsets caught the Predictions Dept. off-guard last week, especially LSU’s defeat of SEC East-leading Georgia. The bigger surprise, though, might have been a horrid Tennessee team knocking off an Auburn squad that started the year ranked inside the top ten. This week, Auburn, which suddenly doesn’t have much of an offense, has to hold off an Ole Miss team that has no defense. Outside of the LSU-Mississippi State, it’s the most intriguing game on this week’s schedule.

Missouri wrap-up: When it came time for a gut check, Tide responded

The way Alabama’s offense can score points may mean the 2018 season goes by without a truly close shave, margin-wise, but don’t for one second think Alabama’s victory over Missouri wasn’t an epic gut check.

Missouri preview: Banged-up Tide could get a test from high-flying Tigers

Although the Missouri Tigers come to Tuscaloosa riding a two-game losing streak, there is an uneasiness about this matchup that has its roots both in the history of the Alabama-Missouri series and also the high-wire act Alabama Crimson Tide has put on through the season’s first month and a half.

SEC Preview and Predictions: Week 7

As we move past the halfway point in the regular season, the Predictions Dept. is enjoying a decent year, albeit a not spectacular one. While we got the Florida-LSU and Texas A&M-Kentucky upsets correct last week, we continued to show too much confidence in Auburn, and the outcome of Missouri’s game against South Carolina caught us off guard. This week, it’s a small slate of games, with Georgia-LSU and Alabama-Missouri the headliners.

Arkansas wrap-up: Bama wins big, but leaves for home with lots to fix

Arkansas wrap-up: Bama wins big, but leaves for home with lots to fix

One of the great challenges of watching the 2018 Alabama football team play is convincing people that when the offense, directed by Tua Tagovailoa, is capable of scoring points at will, there remain significant areas of concern that could affect Bama’s march back to the college football title game.

Arkansas preview: Bama is catching Razorbacks in transition

Arkansas preview: Bama is catching Razorbacks in transition

Although the Bret Bielema era ended rather unceremoniously in Fayetteville, through at least the first four games of the year, Bielema suddenly looked like Vince Lombardi in the rear-view mirror as far as most Arkansas fans were concerned.

Arkansas lost games to Colorado State and North Texas. As bad as that was, the Mean Green of North Texas blew out the Razorbacks. The combination of factors necessary for North Texas to blow out an SEC team occurs with the frequency of ice ages. Apparently 2018 was the year of the Mean Green Woolly Mammoth.

The Predictions Dept. saw trouble coming for Mississippi State against Florida last week, but didn’t pick the upset. Fortunately, the Kentucky pick came through to keep the damage to a minimum. This week, there is a fairly competitive slate of games top-to-bottom with the exception of Alabama’s road trip to Arkansas and Ole Miss hosting Louisiana-Monroe.
