Linked Up: SEC Speed Dating

We're mixing it up for SEC Speed Dating this week. It's a day early for starters, so we know you haven't had a chance to reapply your deodorant from last week. Secondly, this is part of a coordinated post across the SB Nation network called Linked Up. There's lots of cool stuff happening in the network and this is just the beginning.

ProfileJohn L. Smith


Arkansas is here every week on SEC Speed Dating, but they are just so damn sexy. First we met Liz Honey and now we bring you an equally optimistic and irresistible hog in head coach John L. Smith. He's effectively lost his job already but insists that you "SMILE," you son of a bitch! His performance this season is not terribly surprising since he doesn't even know what state he's coaching in. He's going to have lots of free time for you very soon.
Don’t give up on us. It's our program, it’s a state of Alabama program.
ProfileDerek Dooley


Here's a good ole country boy with sharp fashion (see photo) and a sharp wit. He hasn't done a whole lot on the field, but at least he doesn't have eyes for USC. Of course, you won't want to take his last name since you're not a cartoon character. If you need help figuring out how things are going on your date, our friends at Rocky Top Talk will help you assess his performance.
You know the ole sayin', it ain't about the money. It's about the amount.
ProfileJeff Driskel


OK, so he broke your heart in the Aggies' first SEC game, but this fresh-faced youngster deserves another look. Following a 38-0 victory over Kentucky, Jeff is riding high and you'll want to go along for the ride. "He's confident. He's a leader. He's a winner."
I need to get the ball out of my hand faster in only five-man protections. Knowing my reads in certain coverages and just small things like that.
