Houston Nutt Saving One FBS School At A Time: 10 SEC Thoughts From The Opening Weekend

1. Alabama may have found their new Trent Richardson in Eddie Lacy. Having Mark Ingram this Saturday against Penn State would help, but I don’t think it changes their chances of winning.

2. Florida and John Brantley looked lost at times, well most of the first half, on Saturday. Lets just say that was opening game jitters until proven otherwise.

3. Todd Grantham gave Georgia fans more hope in one game than former Defensive Coordinator Willie Martinez ever did. And did you see how bad Oklahoma’s pass defense (Martinez is DB coach) looked against Utah State?

4. Auburn looked exactly the same as they did last year except their QB is faster. The defense has a long ways to go still.

5. Either South Carolina’s offensive line improved a lot in the off season or Marcus Lattimore is just that good.

6. LSU should not feel that good about their win over UNC. Their defense was the first unit to make T. J. Yates look good in two seasons.

7. Derek Dooley did exactly what he need to do on Saturday, give Tennessee fans hope. Reality comes this Saturday with Oregon coming to Knoxville.

8. Joker Phillips gets off to a good start beating Charlie Strong and Louisville. This Commonwealth rivalry will be an interesting one in the next few years.

9. Mississippi State blew out Memphis by a much larger margin than I or the public expected. From the looks of week one, Dan Mullen has something cooking in Starkville.

10. Think Houston Nutt’s focus should have been somewhere else besides Jeremiah Masoli’s eligibility?
