The SEC East has not gone the way many thought it would have. I believe we all thought the favorites to be Tennessee, Georgia, and South Carolina before the season started. Now we look at it, and it's Florida's to win or lose. They seem to be the most improved team in the conference and playing with a confidence we haven't seen in years.
The NCAA College Football season has now reached its mid-point, and as the countdown to Bowl season continues, the real focus for all college prospects will turn towards the 2016 NFL Draft. Ohio State will be looking to defend their 2016 Championship in early January - the Buckeyes head the markets and are highly fancied to retain their crown.
Georgia and Ole Miss have started this season by easily handling the competition. Right now they look like the class of the East and West respectively. I thought if Tennessee could have pulled out the win last week, that they were the clear favorites in the East, but they lost a close one. They will still be very competitive and a surging Eastern Division of the SEC.
College football is less than three weeks away. The preview magazines have been written, the pundits have made their predictions and the teams are preparing for the 2015 season. Season win totals have been posted and the opening lines for week one are already out, have you done your research? Are you ready to bet on some college football?
There has been lots of confusion lately about collectible NFL helmets manufactured by Riddell. Virtually all images on the web currently show the "old" helmets that had the Riddell name on the front bumper and often on the chinstrap. This is the helmet consumers expect to receive. They are often surprised when the helmet they purchase arrives and it's different than the picture because it doesn't have the Riddell name on it.
The 2015 NCAA Tournament kicks off in earnest on Thursday with solid representation from the Southeast Conference. Five SEC squads will hit the court in the Round of 64, starting with the No. 11 Ole Miss Rebels, who take on the No. 6 Xavier Musketeers as two-point underdogs in March Madness betting at the online sportsbooks. The Rebels surprised many on Tuesday night, earning a berth in the Round of 64 with a solid 94-90 win over the BYU Cougars, claiming the outright victory even as three-point underdogs.
The SEC was a lot deeper than most thought they would be. With 8 teams playing in the post season, 5 in the NCAA tournament and 3 in the NIT, the teams truly showed that the SEC is back on the map as a power in college basketball. The NIT features Vanderbilt, Texas A&M, and Alabama. The NCAA tournament will feature Kentucky, Arkansas, LSU, Georgia, and Ole Miss. It was certainly a good season for the SEC.
The SEC looks to be a very good and very different conference for the 2015 football season. Alabama will once again look to be the power in the West, but it appears in state rivals Auburn, who had a great recruiting class, may be the top contenders to knock Alabama off of their number 1 spot. The SEC East was very confusing last year, with Missouri once again capturing the crown. Missouri lost a lot on defense this year and may take a bit of a dip, but I feel they will still easily get to a bowl game. Georgia and Tennessee figure two be the two top contenders to take the title in the East this year. Both of these teams had a lot left and also had a great recruiting season.
The SEC has proven to be more powerful than the analysts thought at the beginning of the season. It appears, by all accounts, that the SEC should produce 5-6 NCAA tournament teams. The SEC tournament should be very exciting. Teams will be trying to prove that they should be in the NCAA. I believe that we will see a couple of upsets, but there is one constant that has been proven throughout the season and that is that Kentucky is the best team in the country.
Deciphering the Numbers: Who's the Greatest NFL Quarterback Ever? If you purely looked at the numbers, the three quarterbacks that most of us feel are in the running for best quarterback ever, may not necessarily be at the top. So many great quarterbacks have thrown for so many yards, played in so many games, thrown so many touchdowns, but the true measure of greatness in any sport is winning. Winning is why the game is played.

Because of the support of their fans,
Southeastern Conference (SEC) schools (overall) have the biggest and best stadiums, athletic facilities, coaches, athletes, sports tradition, and history.
When an SEC football or basketball team plays a home game, that game is probably the biggest thing going on in the entire state at the time.
No other conference has that kind of fan support. So, SEC sports is what it is (the best) because of its fans.
Football is the favorite sport of SEC Sports fans but during the off season you might find them playing some blackjack online. They have a strong sense of competition which makes them sharp blackjack players. That doesn't mean they won't play less competitive games like online slots sometimes too though. After all they could get lucky and win a jackpot that would pay for their season tickets!
