Previews 2017: Arkansas, Auburn and LSU

Arkansas coach Brett Bielema’s job is in some degree of peril at the moment, and this is not the time to be undergoing another rebuilding effort… Auburn will ride one of the best defenses in the nation as far as the ride will go…LSU’s Ed Orgeron can recruit better than any SEC coach not named Nick Saban, so if he can hang on a couple of years until he gets some key pieces, this might actually work out.

Previews 2017: Missouri, South Carolina, Tennessee and Vanderbilt

Barry Odom’s first season as a head coach at Missouri went about as poorly as it could have gone…There is enough talent in South Carolina’s territory, and Will Muschamp a good enough recruiter, that a productive long-term marriage isn’t out of the question…On top of it all, Tennessee head coach Butch Jones is running out of time… It will be difficult for Vanderbilt to repeat as a bowl team thanks to the questions at linebacker and offensive line, but head coach Derek Mason has at least stabilized the team’s base.

Previews 2017: Florida, Georgia and Kentucky

There is much disagreement over the potential future of the Kentucky Wildcats, perhaps much of it surrounding a coaching staff that still is trying to prove itself. Mark Stoops has certainly recruited well enough to win games here, and Kentucky’s position relative to its SEC East peers in regards to talent and experience within the various position units would suggest this could be the surprise team of the division. But it’s still Kentucky. And until the Wildcats actually prove it on the field, no one is giving them the benefit of the doubt.

2017 Previews: Alabama Crimson Tide

Defeated in the College Football National Championship Game in January, Alabama suddenly finds itself in uncharted territory: trying to avenge a loss in a trophy contest. It doesn’t happen often in Tuscaloosa. If the 2017 Alabama Crimson Tide intends to exact revenge for its defeat, it will have to do so with serious depth questions on the defensive line, an unknown quantity at placekicker, and an offensive line that has been erratic and perhaps even underachieving for several years.

2017 Previews: Rating the Units

As the number of expert (and not-so-expert) opinions available on the internet has exploded over the past 20 years, what has been lacking in many of those prognostications is objective data of any sort. While ranking the strength of all position units at this point in the preseason demands some degree of subjective judgment, TideFans.com continues to do its best to add some hard numbers to the mix.
