As Sunday rolled along and the sports world tried to figure out whether Florida’s Jim McElwain had been fired or not (he had), the focus of the day suddenly turned to the SEC’s coaching carousel. And this is October…

It’s no secret Alabama likes to use the second and third games on its schedule to bring in a couple of opponents whose primary job it is to make the Crimson Tide feel good about itself once the games are over.

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.

Is the SEC’s future too tied to a single ship?

Since Nick Saban arrived in Tuscaloosa, Alabama’s already undisputed place atop the SEC landscape has only grown in altitude. Saban, who had won a national title at LSU prior to taking the Alabama job, has won four more national titles since 2007. Had Alabama knocked off Clemson in January, Saban would have tied Paul “Bear” Bryant for total number of titles, but would have done it at a substantially quicker pace. Many already believe Saban has supplanted Bryant as the best college coach that ever was; a win over Clemson would have galvanized those opinions.

Alabama’s resounding victory over Florida on Saturday in the SEC Championship Game did several things: It extended Alabama’s win streak to 25 games, its SEC championship strength to 3 years and ended any speculation of what the College Football Playoff committee might do in the event the Crimson Tide lost this game.

SECCG preview: Hobbled Gators are living on a prayer offensively

There is a lot of familiarity between these two teams, thanks mostly to Florida hiring former Alabama offensive coordinator Jim McElwain as head coach, who subsequently attracted former Bama staffers Doug Nussmeier, Geoff Collins and Chris Rumph. The end result is that Alabama will have a hard time surprising Florida, and with the Gators’ defense a tough customer, expect this one to be close at least until the final quarter. Alabama will need to force Florida to make mistakes in order to avoid a low-scoring stalemate.
