Ahh, bowl season. Don't you love it? A handful of quality bowl games leading up to the traditional New Year's Day marathon feast of college football. Settle in with some black-eyed peas and cabbage, a few hair-of-the-dog frothy beverages, and watch your favorite teams cap off the college football season.
For the third time in nine years, LSU and Georgia meet in Atlanta for the SEC Championship. The Tigers dominated the Dogs back in 2003 and Georgia returned the favor in 2005. What will happen in 2011, with LSU looking to cap its dominant run to the BCS title game and Georgia notching 10 wins in a row? We'll find out at 4 p.m Saturday in the Georgia Dome but, until then, let's take an ...
It's Thanksgiving and you know what that means. Plenty of turkey, your aunt's "famous" casserole that slightly grosses you out, and football.
Serious Southeastern Conference football fans have had Saturday, Nov. 19 circled on their calendars.
OK class, it's time for an SEC pop quiz. Follow the directions closely. Using your Scantron form and a No. 2 pencil, fill in the bubble that corresponds with your answer. Be sure to press firmly and fill in the bubbles completely.
It's tough to live up to great expectations. Just ask the current occupant of the White House. Rarely are our greatest expectations met, which makes it all the more special when it actually happens.
You may have heard that college football's national championship game is on Nov. 5 in Tuscaloosa, when No. 1 LSU faces No. 2 Alabama. That's enough time for two full weeks of nonstop hype surrounding the two best teams in the country.
With six weeks left in the regular season, it's time to reflect on the teams of the finest conference in all of college football. A just-past-midseason assessment is appropriate given that most SEC teams are off this week - or they might as well be. Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, and Mississippi State are off. Alabama has the equivalent of an off week against Tennessee, as does Arkansas against the menacing Ole Miss Black Bears.
What time does your SEC team kickoff on Saturday? It's an important question that likely shapes your weekend. If your team plays in the 12:21 p.m. game, I'm sorry, but that game stinks. Blocking out three and a half hours in the middle of Saturday just doesn't work. You've got kids' soccer games, honey-do lists, running errands, and so forth. Not to mention the junior varsity level broadcast of the 12:21 kickoff. Seems like ...
We've got five weeks of college football under our belts. That's five weeks of tailgating at stadiums across the SEC, game parties at stately southern homes, and road trips from Texas to South Carolina and everywhere in between.
It's already Week 5 of the college football season and Saturday's games take place on the first day of my favorite month, October. Comfortably cooling temperatures, clear blue skies, and five October weekends of big-time SEC match-ups, including Saturday night's clash of conference titans, Alabama and Florida.
As we approach late September, SEC football is in full swing, along with another bruising competitive race - the Republican presidential campaign. It's difficult not to notice the parallels between the SEC and presidential politics. Big money. Bigger egos.
The nation's finest conference kicks off Week 3 of the college football season Thursday as No. 3 LSU (2-0) visits No. 25 Mississippi State (1-1) in scenic Starkville, Miss.
As summer slowly slips away in the South, the second week of college football season brings cooler temperatures and a few high-profile conference clashes.
An all-Tigers SEC Championship kicks off Saturday afternoon in the Georgia Dome as No. 5 Missouri faces No. 3 Auburn. A national title appearance is on the line if the pathetically slow, boring, and overrated Ohio State Buckeyes lay an egg in the Big 10 championship game.
Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday. It's uniquely American and without the assorted pressures of Christmas. A time to be grateful for life's many blessings. Family, friends, health, and our wonderful country of opportunity and advancement.
