A-Day Wrap-up: Bama looks loaded again, but is not yet complete

From the outset, Alabama was aggressive Saturday, particularly on offense, where new coordinator Brian Daboll didn’t return the Crimson Tide to stoic roots so much as he re-taught the offense how to lean forward. Gone was much of Kiffin’s finesse elements; in their place, more NFL-level schemes, strategies and attitude. When everything was clicking, this offense hearkened back to the best years of Jim McElwain and Doug Nussmeier.

SEC previews and predictions: Week 14

Tennessee’s collapse against Kentucky will likely prove to be the pick that cost the Predictions Dept. a 90-percent success rate in 2011.

Still, this has been the best season ever for the Predictions Dept., and we’ve had fun along the way. Now, our prediction for the SEC Championship Game.

MSU wrap-up: Spartans sell out to stop Henry, forget about rest of UA’s team

Faced with the task of stopping Alabama’s balanced, efficient offense, Michigan State made the understandable call to sell out to stop Heisman Trophy-winning running back Derrick Henry and force Alabama to put the game in QB Jake Coker’s hands. Three hours later, Michigan State coaches were asking for a mulligan.

2013 Fall Previews: Auburn Tigers

After a one-year experiment with a pro-style attack that ultimately cost Gene Chizik his job, Auburn is back to the land of the no-huddle spread offense under Gus Malzahn, who returns to Auburn after a year at Arkansas State. The Tigers hope to return to the glory days of 2010, but to do so, they'll have to do it without a quarterback anywhere near the level of Cam Newton, not to mention a defense that has been in a rut for years and a general lack of playmakers on offense.

Previews 2011: Georgia Bulldogs

The problem for Georgia is where there’s a hole, it’s a big one. The Bulldogs have no proven players at wideout or running back, and the secondary, while veteran-filled, didn’t play nearly as well in 2010 as its statistics indicated.

SECCG wrap-up: Bama plays to its strengths, takes advantage of Gator errors

As gameplans go, the one Alabama used to defeat Florida for the 25th SEC championship in school history was stunningly simple: Alabama would use its defense to choke the life out of an anemic offense forced to work behind a thin, under-talented offensive line. Then the Crimson Tide would feed Florida a steady dose of Derrick Henry until the Gators wilted under the constant pressure. Sometimes, gameplans don’t play out the way they’re put together on chalkboards. But this one did.
