    Johnny ManzielThe ball has dropped, the spirits have been consumed and 2013 has been welcomed with the traditional fanfare. As families across the southern United States settled in for their ham, collard greens and black-eyed peas on New Year’s Day, they did so after seeing comeback victories from Georgia and South Carolina. They also enjoyed the realization that the conference has four remaining opportunities to take down bowl victories, including the BCS National Championship. Read Full Story »

    Alabama Crimson TideJanuary 4, 2006. You may remember the day. Vince Young combined for 467 yards of total offense in the Rose Bowl, including 200 of those yards on 19 rushing attempts. Those 200 yards also netted three rushing touchdowns for Young, who was the game’s offensive MVP. LenDale White also rushed for three touchdowns for USC, then went on to become Young’s teammate in Tennessee before they both flamed out of the NFL. Nine records were set on that day. As it turned out, none of it mattered. USC’s appearance in that game was vacated as part of the punishment for improprieties involving Reggie Bush. Read Full Story »

    Clear Your Schedule – 2012 SEC Championship Game

    By Brian Wilmer -

    Alabama-GeorgiaWe should have known. We truly should have known.

    Just when we all thought the SEC’s streak of playing for national titles would end, Kansas State lost. Then Oregon lost. We will not get an all-SEC title game this year, but the winner of this year’s conference championship game gets the honor of facing Notre Dame in the BCS Championship. Alabama is fighting for a return trip to play for the title, while a Georgia win would allow them to play for their first title since 1980. Ironically enough, Georgia beat Notre Dame to win that title. Read Full Story »

    By Brian Wilmer -

    Bank of America StadiumOne of the wildest ACC football seasons in recent memory draws to a close on Saturday in Charlotte. Clemson lost their first ACC game to Florida State, then never lost again over the course of the ACC schedule. Maryland lost every scholarship quarterback to injury and finished the season with a linebacker playing quarterback. Maryland was not done making news, though, as they announced their intent to leave for the Big 10 in 2014.
