SEC Football Week 10 Review
This week was cupcake central in the SEC as several teams took the week off before heading into the homestretch. Of the games that did not put you to sleep, the LSU-Alabama game was one of epic proportions, and the Arkansas-South Carolina game reminded all of us there are reasons why the games are played on the field, instead of on paper.
Let’s look at the week that was in the SEC:
SEC Game of the Week
LSU 24 – Alabama 21
Once again, Les Miles has escaped the hangman’s noose. In one of the most incredible calls in recent SEC memory, Miles decided to go for a fourth and one in the fourth quarter and the gamble paid off as DeAngelo Peterson went 23 yards with a reverse to set up Stevan Ridley's go-ahead 1-yard plunge in the fourth quarter as LSU held on for a 24-21 upset of Alabama.
Just goes to show you what I know about football as I thought the Tide had the game under control as they only gave up three points at half, and after a missed LSU field goal off a fake punt, it looked as if they were going to put the Tigers away.

Gee, put one of those hot LSU outfits on Bea Arthur and Betty White and they are looking pretty darn hot!
Florida 55- Vanderbilt 14
Building on their emotional overtime victory over Georgia last week, Florida pounded Vanderbilt in a tune up for their Eastern Division Championship match with South Carolina next Saturday.

Chris Rainey blocked two punts and caught a 40-yard touchdown pass from John Brantley as Florida routed Vanderbilt 55-14, which secured a second straight losing season for the ‘Doores.
I guess when you are getting your brains beat in, the refs might look the other way if you try to bring guys in from the sideline to try to help out with a tackle (right).
Arkansas 41 – South Carolina 20
Ever dated that really hot chick/dude who seems really into you, and just when it looks like you are doing great, they dump you for someone who is better looking?

Well, that’s the relationship South Carolina has with its love starved fan base as they teased their fans into another heartbreak as they were completely flattened by Arkansas 41-20.
Fear not, Carolina fans, since you till can win the SEC East next week.
But the way you have been playing the last few weeks, get out the Kleenex, Jack Daniels, and the Foghat records since another, but far more terrible, disappointment is coming your way on Saturday.
Hey look! (right) Is that our SEC East championship hopes flying away with Sir Big Spur?
The Rip Van Winkle Saturday Cavalcade
Georgia 55 – Idaho State 7
Aaron Murray threw three touchdown passes, with two going to A.J. Green as Georgia destroyed Idaho State 55-7.
The Bulldogs slept walked through the first quarter, only leading 6-0, but poured it on from that point on as they got ready for their rivalry game against Auburn.
Good to see the loss to Florida last week didn’t keep the UGA fans from coming out to support their team.
Auburn 62 – UT-Chattanooga 24
Just so you know, when I was approached about writing for the SEC Sportsfan website, I had my emissary talk to the owner and tell him that I could be hired for 200 big ones. I could also come in for 180 big ones using the “friends and family” discount.
Sorry, I had to have a hook for this one to get your attention since the only hook I saw was meant for UTC, and they got it right after the opening kickoff.
Is Cam Newton the man or what? He’s so good they must have told him if he won the Heisman, he could order anything, or everything, he wanted from the menu at the Auburn Denny’s. How is that for motivation?
“Hey, free doughnuts for everyone in section 121. I’m buyin’!”
Kentucky 49 – Charleston Southern 21
If you wanted to catch up on your sleep, this was the game to do it. Mike Hartline passed for 272 yards and two touchdowns, and Kentucky pulled away from Charleston Southern 49-21.
The Buccaneers tied Kentucky 14-14 with just less than 6 minutes left in the second quarter but Kentucky rallied with two touchdowns before halftime. Kentucky won its 19th consecutive non-conference game, a streak dating back to 2006.
By the way, does Kentucky always wear the all blue uniforms? In every game it seems, home or away, they come out looking like the Smurfs. And before you say it, they have played like them too.
Ole Miss 43 – Louisiana-Lafayette 21
Brandon Bolden rushed for 136 yards and two touchdowns as Mississippi beat Louisiana-Lafayette 43-21.
Ole Miss quarterback Jeremiah Masoli left the game after suffering a concussion in the first quarter, but his night was pretty much done anyway as the Rebs were ahead 24-7.
Good to see Edgar Winter in The Grove yesterday…
Tennessee 50 – Memphis 14
Freshman quarterback Tyler Bray, starting his first game for Tennessee, threw for 325 yards and five touchdowns Saturday as Tennessee ended a four game losing streak in a 50-14 rout of Memphis.
This game was being carried by CBS College Sports, which is the graveyard of football on TV. When your school’s game can’t, or won’t, be picked up by a legitimate network, CBS College Sports is there to help.
What better matchup for the CBS Game of the Week than UT against Memphis, where both teams have a combined three wins. Just the thing to get people excited about next week’s Tulsa vs. Houston game on CBS College Sports Network.
By the way, the guy who did this to his car is cool….
