SEC Sundays at the Barbecue Pit - Week 3

Bbq-pit_medium

It was another wild week in the best league in the land. The two beheamoth empires at the top flexed their brawn and emasculated inferior opponents. Louisiana-Monroe damn near derailed a second SEC West team in as many weeks. Meanwhile, the Kentucky Kalipari's were Hiltopped at home by one of the ballsier play calls you'll ever see.

Read on, for another installment of SEC Sundays at the Pit.

Louisiana-Monroe 28

Auburn 31

Did Auburn really win a MNC within the last two years? Don't those things usually yield a recruiting windfall that makes future success exponential in many ways? Anyway, the Tigers averted serious disaster and a 0-3 start by holding off those wicked Warhawks from Monroe. The Warhawks poured on 14 fourth quarter points to drive the game into overtime, and if it weren't for a couple misses by their kicker, they'd be sitting at 2-0 with a couple very impressive wins on the resume.

For their survival, Auburn gets the joy of hosting LSU next weekend. Gene Chizik ranks near the top of "bad coaches who have national titles" along with Larry Coker.

The Dores got a nice game to figure out their offense after a couple tough losses to start the season. Perhaps the win installed some much needed confidence in a squad tasked with a trip to Athens this upcoming weekend.

Arkansas 0

Look, many of us thought that Arkansas would have a tough time living up to their lofty rankings after the off season dumpster fire, but did anyone think it'd be THIS bad? The Hogs didn't belong on the field Saturday. Saban did what he always does when he sees a fragile, frost-stricken bed of tulips - jump in the tank and run the damn thing over. It was nice watching the Ags lay waste up in Dallas, but I kept checking back on this game and getting completely nauseous thinking of our trip to Tuscaloosa later in the year. This Tide team is a machine hellbent on destruction.

Florida 37

Tennessee 20

Maybe last week's Florida loss doesn't look so bad after all. In consecutive weeks, the Gators went into hostile road environments desperate for wins and choked out the opponent in the second half. Jeff Driskel continues to mature as a passer as evidenced by his efficiency. The real story for the Gator offense was a running attack that piled up 336 yards on 43 carries that bludgeoned the Vols into submission.

The Gators get a couple weeks of solace (Kentucky, bye week) before what should be a massive October 6th game in the Swamp against LSU. It will be interesting to see how the Vols handle their first taste of adversity this year. They get to host Akron (Tubberville!) before a brutal stretch of 3 of 4 on the road - all four games against ranked opponents

Western Kentucky 32

Kentucky 31

All balls win by the Hilltoppers in the state's flagship house. You've likely seen the trick play that sealed the game in OT that featured quarterback Kawaun Jakes throwing a lateral to wide receiver Antonio Andrews who then threw it back to Jakes who walked it in for the win.

Relentless defense and Johnny F. Football.


Arizona State 20

Missouri 24

With quarterback James Franklin out for the Tigers, redshirt freshman Corbin Berkstresser was flipped the keys to the bus. What resulted was a nice home win that was bolstered by four forced turnovers by the Tiger defense. Mizzou withstood a late push from the Sun Devils to earn their second win of the season in front of the sellout crowd in Columbia.

Next week, the Tiger bus is heading to the other SEC Columbia for a huge test against Spurrier's lads.

UAB 6

South Carolina 49

Pretty standard route of a lowly non-conference foe. Carolina lost battering ram quarterback Connor Shaw to injury. His shoulder is currently being held together with some twine and barbed wire. Actual Spurrier quote: "this was one of the closest 49-6 games I have ever been around."

Ok, coach.

713 yards of offense? YOWZA. Are the stars finally aligning for a special season in Athens?


Idaho 14

LSU 63

LSU did that LSU thing where they toy around with a lesser opponent for a quarter or two, only to later rip that opponent's lunch and girlfriend right out from under him and then gloat in some indecipherable Cajun, drunken babble.

The Tigers should continue rolling the next couple weeks (Towson, Auburn), before a trip to what should be an insane (hopefully night) Kyle Field.

Thanks, Rebs. Now we have to listen to more Horn chatter about wanting to be an SEC team without actually being an SEC team. You made David Ash look like a serviceable quarterback. Hugh Freeze has his hands full in Oxford - that defense is going to get abused and maimed all season.
