SEC Week 12 Recap

I’ve said all I care to about the LSU / Troy game, but I will note my prediction was 42 – 20. So Troy made it closer than I thought, and obviously things unfolded not like I expected – or as they should have. And it was a different defensive back that scored on Jarrett Lee’s latest gift, not the guy I was expecting it to be.

Elsewhere in the SEC:

Florida’s blowout of South Carolina was really impressive. I looked for more defense from the Cocks and a closer game. But it was South Carolina making the mistakes as I figured. I just thought they could keep things closer.

The surprise in the Georgia / Auburn game was the Dawgs’ ineffective offense. Just 28 more yards and three fewer points than UT-Martin put on the War Eagles? Oof.

Alabama took care of Mississippi State as expected.

Kentucky couldn’t keep the Randall “Not Tex” Cobb momentum going and lost to Vandy. I’d expected more and blew the pick. And it did not escape my notice that the ‘Cats put up 90 more yards and 14 more points on Georgia than they did on Vandy.

And then we have Ole Miss, who dropped 520 yards and 59 points on UL-Monroe while holding the Warhawks scoreless and with just 131 yards of offense. UL-M rang up 341 yards and 27 points on Arkansas earlier this year. That performance is quite noteworthy with the Rebels visiting Baton Rouge Saturday.

For the week: 5 – 1
For the season: 64 – 10

    So, in other words, Georgia once again is overrated. Florida will be the SEC East champ, probably play Fonzie in Atlanta and in the BCS title game.

    We’ll all be singin’ “Oh I wish I were an Urban Meyer Weiner”.

    No, we won’t.
