Week One Pass/Fail Report SEC


Mississippi State…The Bulldogs just crushed the Tigers in every single way, and did so on the road, which is what drove them to #1 in the first PRS Rankings of 2011. The Bulldogs broke all kinds of records, and Vic Ballard continued on his run as a TD machine.
Alabama…The Tide did not have to do much this week to be successful, and they coasted, but did find a QB in AJ McCarron. Trent Richardson, 3 TDs aside, was not very impressive.
Tennessee…The Vols were in control the entire afternoon against a very solid Montana program. The Grizzlies never got close, and the Vols got an easy win at home.
South Carolina…East Carolina jumped up 17-0, and it made the Gamecocks angry. Stephen Garcia got redemption by passing for 3 scores, while Marcus Lattimore added three scores of his own.
Arkansas…The Razorbacks struggled early last season, but no such thing this season, as the Hogs rolled to a 30-0 lead at the half on Missouri State.
Florida…It was a successful launch for Will Muschamp and his Gators, as they crushed FAU at the Swamp. It was a dominating performance across the board.
Vanderbilt…The Commodores capped off a big first win for James Franklin by blowing it open with 21 in the 4th quarter. Strong teams finish strong, and the Commodores took care of that this week.
LSU…The Tigers whipped Oregon around like a rag doll all night long, and they now look to be a team in the national title hunt.


Kentucky…The defense saved their ass. With UK struggling on offense all night, the defense did what they had to do to make it work. If the offense does not wake up soon, this defense will get hung out to dry.
Auburn…Auburn should never need late heroics to stave off an upset bid by Utah State. What happened on Saturday was shameful, and it paints a picture of what SEC foes can do to them.
Ole Miss…The pressure is slowly building on Houston Nutt to win, and he had his chance against BYU. The team blew it late, and the heat is building in Oxford.
Georgia…Speaking of heat, Mark Richt should start packing his bags. Short of winning 9 or 10 games from this point forward, nothing will save him now. They were never in it against Boise State.
