Around the SEC: Bama-A&M; bad news for UT, Auburn

jkendall@thestate.comNovember 7, 2012 

So maybe adding Texas A&M (and then having Kevin Sumlin hired at Texas A&M) was a plot by Nick Saban to help him tune up Alabama for the national title game? Come on, you know it’s possible. Here’s a good take from a Birmingham, Ala., columnist about how this weekend’s game between the Crimson Tide and the Aggies will help Alabama prepare for the Ducks. You know, should all that happen.

John Adams points out the bad news for folks like Tennessee and Auburn. It’s not a great time to be trying to rebuild a program in the SEC.

------------------

I didn’t realize Georgia had beaten Auburn five out of the last six. This rivalry used to be one of the most unpredictable in the SEC. Now? Not so much.

So an Auburn player says it’s possible to stop Jarvis Jones, and everybody gets all hot and bothered. Does no one remember the South Carolina game?

------------------

It’s just getting sad for Missouri. Quarterback James Franklin seems like a nice kid, but he’s having a wretched year and apparently it’s weighing on him.

Florida offensive coordinator Brent Pease says he’s willing to talk to Kentucky. He probably ought to figure out how to get the Gators’ offense going first.
