SEC Preview and Predictions: Week 1

Week 1 offers an interesting slate of games for the most part, and Alabama might not have the most interesting matchup of all. That honor goes to Auburn, whose game against Washington could end one school's championship hopes before they even get off the ground.

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.

MSU wrap-up: Effect of injuries shows how tenuous Bama’s position could be

The Mississippi State game was always one to circle this year, thanks to a veteran Bulldog team with good lines, linebackers and a solid senior quarterback. The game came up on the schedule immediately following an LSU game that is always physical, no matter the outcome.

The Citadel preview: Tide’s goals are to limit injuries, exposure

Games against teams like The Citadel have become a necessary evil in top-level college football. Top teams can't play challenging games every week, because football is an emotional sport at the college level, the repercussions of a loss are too severe, and sometimes, the starters just need a break.

Projected Depth Chart for Alabama vs. Arkansas

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.

Louisville Preview: Cardinals in transition as Alabama begins title defense

If Louisville gets hot offensively, it's not completely impossible that this game would turn into a shootout. But if Alabama can slow the Cardinal offense at all, a defense that was already bad and then lost nine starters to graduation would seem to have little chance of stopping what figures to be the most explosive Alabama offense perhaps in all of school history.

SEC Preview and Predictions: Week 13

This week, it's Rivalry Week, featuring much-harder calls up and down the list. Alabama-Auburn is obviously the biggest, but LSU-Texas A&M has some potential and even Georgia-Georgia Tech isn't an automatic.

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.

Tennessee wrap-up: Vols fought hard, but resistance is futile

One of the most illogical developments in the Southeastern Conference in recent years has been the ascension of Phil Fulmer to Tennessee athletic director, roughly a decade after he was forced to vacate the position of Tennessee head coach.
