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.

SEC Previews and Predictions: Week 2

All things considered, a 10-3 week wasn’t a bad start for The Predictions Dept., given the level of craziness SEC teams displayed in some of their respective openers. The biggest upset, by rank, was Wisconsin’s surprise victory over LSU that put Les Miles back on the hotseat. But South Alabama beating Mississippi State may have been even more shocking.
