SECual Healing: Saban Whining, Over/Unders, LSU QB Issues
According to my TimeHop, this is about the time where, in the past couple of years, Georgia has started to make the news in the offseason. This has not been a good thing as it has led to heavy personnel loss, and it is refreshing to *knocks on wood* not have surprise attrition in 2015. #In SchottenheimerWeTrust, I guess.
Anyhow, the big news of the week is Nick Saban
caught a fish bigger than him whined about the Big Ten and their satellite camps, intruding on the SEC’s fertile recruiting ground. The goal of the league’s coaches is to have them banned by 2016, and Mike Slive/Greg Sankey are on record as saying that the SEC will allow them if other conferences continue to do so. The golf potential for Steve Spurrier in California, a return of Bret Bieliema to Wisconsin, and the prospect of Les Miles yukking it up somewhere in the Northeast all make this an exciting prospect for me.
On the heels of the Everett Golson rule, CAN WE PLEASE GET OUR LEAGUE BACK ON A LEVEL PLAYING FIELD WITH THE REST OF THE COUNTRY?!?
Meanwhile, ESPN in an attention-grabbing headline says the SEC West hasn’t lost its luster. (Or bluster.) No s**t.
Finally, you know college football is at least on the horizon when you start getting over/unders. 5 Dimes, God bless ’em, was first to the party. Following is the divisions ranked by their projected line.
South Carolina 7
Vanderbilt 3 (lol it’s funny but it’s not)
Ole Miss 8.5
Texas A&M 7.5
Mississippi State 7
Let’s just say there are some juicy potential bets in there.
From that: would a 5th place division finish put Les Miles on the hot seat? I think I agree with SBN’s Ian Boyd when he says it would definitely get much warmer.
