SEC East Losers:

I still have no idea how Tennessee lost that game.

South Carolina:

The Head Ball Coach finds his team in the SEC East loser’s category for the first time this season after an embarrassing performance against Kentucky.

Not only did South Carolina play bad, they lost their starting quarterback for up to six weeks.

This game was pretty even in the box score. Both teams had around 400 total yards and both ran and threw for right around 200 a piece. It seems to have been a typically boring South Carolina/Kentucky football game.

Even as bad as they’ve looked so far you can mark it down that South Carolina will put up a hell of fight this weekend against Georgia. There’s still something about beating the Bulldogs that gets Spurrier going.


Oh Rocky Top! How did you lose that game?

Up 17-3 at home headed into the fourth only to lose in overtime? Classic Tennessee.

Dobbs started out pretty good then faltered down the stretch, giving Oklahoma a chance to come back and tie it up.

Make it 28 out of 29 losses against ranked teams. In case you were wondering, that’s not very good Vols! Plus you gave Bob Stoops even more room to trash talk the SEC, thanks a lot!

Don’t worry though Tennessee was probably just looking ahead to their big home match-up against Western Carolina this weekend. A game I’m sure they’ll play well in because they’re playing a nobody. The only somebodies that Tennessee can actually beat!


Will the Commodores ever escape this slide?

Welcome to what could possibly be your permanent home for the season Vanderbilt; the SEC East loser’s section.

As mentioned above, Vandy lost by 17 at home to Georgia. Not the worst outcome though if you consider how they played last week, but still not good.

Vanderbilt has a home game against Austin Peay Saturday. If they don’t win that, they could be in serious threat of going 0-12. Which surely would be a first in SEC history.
