SEC banter: Keeping up with the fast-paced SEC

In the throes of the 2013 college football season, the SEC East is suddenly wide open and the West is taking shape. Upsets, stellar performances, and big-boy football games are happening at a rapid pace.

Prevost: Handing out midseason grades in the SEC

Unbelievably, we're just about halfway through the college football season. After six weekends of college football in the South, this much is certain: your Bloody Mary recipe should be perfected by now. But, if not, you've still got time to make the grade.

Clausen: Trojans, Spartans lead power ratings after solid starts

Friday was the first time in a long time that I haven't seen at least one Hall County game (if not two) on a Friday night. Betsy and I were in Columbus, Ohio, celebrating the 1973 undefeated Ohio State Buckeye team.

SEC Banter: Broaden your SEC horizons

Each week, I consult my handy SEC helmet schedule when deciding the topic for SEC Banter. The schedule shows every game for every SEC team using helmets. It's fantastic to view an entire SEC football season on a single sheet of paper, and I have to admit that the little helmets are kind of cute.

Clausen: Big win lifts North Hall to top of power ratings

We've now seen three weeks of Hall County high school football. Last Friday night, we went to City Park Stadium to see Gainesville take on Buford. I knew going into the game that Buford was loaded with Division-I college prospects. And I also knew that win, lose or draw, this would be a good contest for Bruce Miller's tough-minded Red Elephants. This is the kind of game that prepares your players to make a run at the playoffs and another possible state championship.

Prevost: The game of the century of September

Die-hard sports fans have circled Saturday, Sept. 14 on their calendars for months. Fall's most anticipated game awaits. You guessed it: Saturday marks just three more weeks until the NBA preseason tips off in Istanbul, Turkey, when the Oklahoma City Thunder plays the Turkish basketball club Fenerbahce Ulker at Ulker Sports Arena.

When I entered coaching in 1963, I coached one year at Gallup High School after playing high school and college football in New Mexico.

Prevost: Georgia's nemesis comes to town

A nemesis is defined as "a formidable and usually victorious rival or opponent." Ninety-nine percent of Georgia fans who read that definition can't help but think of one person: Steve Spurrier.

Johnson: Couples once again on the Masters leaderboad

He walks up the 17th fairway at Augusta National uncomfortably upright, his hands clutched to both ends of a 7-iron that stretches toward the sky behind his head. He rocks the club from one hip to the other, bending his back side-to-side as he grimaces.
