It’s time for the SEC Week 4 Quick Snap. A short tour around the SEC covering everything you need to know about this week’s games.
Dawgs will be Violent
Georgia host Kent State in their latest “we-paid-you-millions-so-we-can-truck-you” game. I’m not sure this amount of violence should be on TV this early in the day. The only thing possibly worth watching is the backup QB play for Georgia, once they’re up big.
Harsin Playing Job Chicken with the Tigers
Auburn plays Mizzou at home in a “win-or-be-fired” game for Bryan Harsin. Calzada needs season-ending shoulder surgery meaning T.J. Finley gets to take snaps. This Auburn team has looked too easy to figure out and Eli Drinkwitz is too smart to be out-coached by Harsin. Tune in if you want to see Eli Drinkwitz get Harsin fired. The only way Auburn wins is if Tank Bigsby runs through the Mizzou defense. Which is also still fun to watch.
CFB Fans… Take Note
Mississippi State plays Bowling Green in Starkville. This is one of those opportunities for CFB fans to ‘gift’ their significant other a Saturday together. Make a huge deal about how you could be watching a VERY important game against powerhouse Bowling Green and bank those brownie points.
Look for it to get Nuts in Neyland
Florida travels to Knoxville to play the Vols in the College GameDay game of the week. Two passionate SEC schools who hate each other and think they are more important nationally than they actually are. Tennessee is exciting with Hendon Hooker and Cedric Tillman and the same can be said about the Gators and Anthony Richardson. I’m expecting the best Florida v Tennessee match in years.
Rebels Should Run Riot
Ole Miss host Tulsa in what could be a potential trip-up game if the Rebels don’t show up. There really isn’t much to watch in this game except the progression of quarterback Jackson Dart, running back Zach Evans, and wide receiver Johnathan Mingo.
Green Right X Shift to Dianetics Right 382 X L.Ron Hubbard Stick Lookie
Arkansas will travel south to Jerry World to play Texas A&M. Arkansas looks like a tough team for anybody to beat and A&M have shown they have trouble beating just about anybody so my instincts say the Hogs win big. Weird things happen in College Station though so this could be 9-6 or 54-48. If I’m watching this game it’s mainly for Rakim Jarret. He already looks like he’s heading for pro football Sundays.
Wide Receiver Interviews Taking Place in Tuscaloosa
Bama plays Vanderbilt. Err, yeah. Why is it worth watching? Well… it’ll be Bama’s last game without wide receivers Jojo Earle and Tyler Harrell so players like Holden, Burton, and Prentice will need to have big games to keep their starting spots. Other than that I have nothing for you.
Will we get to see Garrett?
LSU plays New Mexico at home in what should be a get-right game for the Tigers. There is also a chance to potentially see what freshman QB Garrett Nussmeier can do under centre. John Emery Jnr. should have a day on the ground if you’re on ‘prospect watch’.
Dane is the Key Right Now for Kentucky
Kentucky host Northern Illinois in what should be a formality game for the Wildcats. They are currently ranked 8th in the country, with Ole Miss on deck next week. This normally screams “let down game” whilst the team looks ahead. However, I think Mark Stoops is too good a motivator to let that happen. Freshman WR Dane Key is worth checking into the game for. He already has 13/226/3 this season with an average catch of 17.4 yards. Devy and C2C players take note!
South Carolina Needs to Set the “Juice” Loose More Often
South Carolina plays Charlotte in a game where Spencer Rattler shouldn’t need to run for his life that much. If I’m turning this game on it’s mainly for Antwane “Juice” Wells Jr. The 6-1, 204 wideout is a legit NFL prospect and he has been the brightest light on Shane Beamer’s team so far this season. In their 44-30 loss to Arkansas Wells Jnr went 8-189-1. He didn’t play last week against Georgia and Rattler sure could’ve used him.
That’s it for this week’s SEC Week 4 Quick Snap. Come back next week where I break down week 5 in the SEC.
