Week two of SEC football has now passed, and we saw some crazy action this weekend down south. Arkansas and TCU went to double-overtime in an absolute thriller, and we saw Georgia almost fall to Nicholls. We have a quarterback change at LSU and Kentucky still sucks, among many other things this football Saturday. So, without further adu, let's get into the takeaways.
ALABAMA: Not much here. Alabama won easily by a final of 38-10, but Nick Saban did have an absolute meltdown on the sideline after the offense fumbled late in the game. Bama had an easy week two, but will face a big challenge this week with Ole Miss.
ARKANSAS: The importance of the Hogs' win over TCU cannot be overstated. The Razorbacks proved a lot by beating a ranked opponent on the road, but have huge tests in Alabama and LSU coming up.
AUBURN: The Tigers faced no real test in Arkansas State, but the offense dazzled and the defense showed up once again. This week's matchup with Texas A&M is a statement game for the program.
FLORIDA: After several seasons of being the stereotypical loaded team with no quarterback, it appears the Gators have found one. Luke Del Rio looks like he is a competent quarterback, one who can at least do enough to win games behind the defense. Florida could make a serious push at the SEC title.
GEORGIA: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. NICHOLLS!!?!? ARE YOU SERIOUS? The Bulldogs barely beat an FCS team that won ZERO GAMES just two seasons ago. Georgia has talent, but has messy situations across the board. It could be a long year.
KENTUCKY: The Wildcats got slaughtered on national television by Florida a week after a terrible loss to Southern Miss. The team sucks. The program sucks. The future looks terrible. Mark Stoops is getting canned.
LSU: Les Miles and company finally made the decision to move on from the struggling Brandon Harris and insert Danny Etling at quarterback mid-game. The offense instantly exploded, and the Tigers won big. Now, we have to see if Etling can lead the team consistently better than Harris has, or else LSU's title chances could be gone in a hurry.
MISSISSIPPI STATE: We still don't really know what this team is, but they made a big statement by beating South Carolina a week after falling to South Alabama. The Bulldogs have a long ways too go, but this was at least a step forward.
MISSOURI: Congrats. You beat Eastern Michigan
OLE MISS: I expected more against Wofford. They didn't look dominant in any way, and they get Alabama this week. It's gonna be tough, but the Rebels have a chance at the upset this weekend.
SOUTH CAROLINA: The Gamecocks are exactly what we thought they would be. Brutal on offense, and inexperienced across the board. Maybe Will Muschamp can build something there, but for right now, it's gotta be painful for the fans.
TENNESSEE: Tennessee finally played like we thought they were capable of this year. The offense rolled, the defense made big plays, and the Volunteers won big against the Hokies.
TEXAS A&M: The Aggies slaughtered Prairie View A&M, but that doesn't really say much. The team heads to The Plains for a huge matchup with Auburn this week.
VANDERBILT: Derek Mason's team played well Saturday, but they still have not proven that they can get it done in conference play. That's something that needs to change, and soon.
