It’s week one of the college football season, so it’s time for my SEC and Tigers picks plus some bold predictions for the upcoming season.

SEC East

1.     Florida (11-1 / 7-1) Lone loss at LSU

2.     Georgia (11-1 / 7-1) Lone loss vs. Florida

3.     Tennessee (7-5 / 3-5) Lose at Kentucky

4.     South Carolina (5-7 / 3-5) Beat Ole Miss

5.     Vanderbilt (5-7 / 2-6) Beat Kentucky

6.     Kentucky (6-6 / 2-6) 4th Straight Bowl Win

SEC West

1.     Alabama (11-1 / 7-1) Lone loss at Ole Miss

2.     LSU (10-2 / 6-2) Lose at Georgia and Alabama

3.     Ole Miss (10-2 / 6-2) Lose vs. LSU

4.     Arkansas (7-5 / 3-5) 0-4 on Road in SEC

5.     Auburn (5-7 / 2-6) Beat MSU and UK

6.     Mississippi State (2-10 / 0-8) Win at MTSU

SEC Champ: Florida

Memphis Tigers (5-7 / 3-5) Win at MTSU

Bold Predictions:

–         Rich Brooks announces retirement prior to Tennessee game and Wildcats beat Vols for first time in 25 years

–         If Rich Rodriguez is fired at Michigan, Les Miles will be the head coach of the Wolverines

–         4 teams will have a new coach to start 2010

–         Randall Cobb will start a game at Quarterback for Kentucky

–         LSU beats Florida

–         Joe Cox will have third best numbers of any QB in the SEC behind Tebow and Snead.  He’ll be better than Mallett because of turnover differential

–         Tim Tebow wins the Heisman, a Nobel Peace Prize, a Pulitzer, SI Man of the Year, Employee of the Month, an Olympic Gold Medal, and Humanitarian of the Galaxy.

Random Thoughts:

–         Those new batting helmets do look ridiculous.  David Wright looks like a 4 year old boy in a big league helmet.


–         However, this is just another example of baseball players being the biggest D-BAGS in sports.  I’m speaking from experience too!  It’s all about how they look- Goatee, Flat Brim, Eye Black, Long Pants, Baggy Pants, Dirty Helmet, Chewing Tobacco.  Remember how base coaches complained about wearing helmets last year?  They’ve gotten over it.  MLB players need to do one of two things.  Either wear the darn thing and be safe, or look good and stop whining about pitches coming inside while you’re digging over the plate!

–         Hell’s Kitchen is a must watch.  Three people I’d love to have drinks with at one time- Chef Ramsay, Piers Morgan, and Simon Cowell.  I’d just like to sit on a patio somewhere people watching and hear them critique everyone.

–         Shaq might be the best ambassador of any professional sport in our country.  He is very valuable to the NBA and they need to realize it.

–         Urban Meyer told College Football Live on ESPN Wednesday that his favorite Tim Tebow joke is: Tim Tebow walked into a McDonalds and ordered a Whopper and they went and got him one.

His reign as King of the Blues has been as long as that of any monarch on earth. Yet B.B. King continues to wear his crown well.

Their dream turned into 20 Top Ten singles, 12 Top Ten albums (five of which were #1), and sales of more than 120 million records.
