Bilo's College Football PASS/FAIL Reports Week 5: SEC
PASS: Alabama, Texas A&M, Tennessee, Ole Miss, Arkansas, Florida, Auburn, LSU
Alabama dominated Kentucky from start to finish this week, and they now move into our top spot in our FBS PRS rankings. The Tide is really the most dominant team in history right now.
Don’t look now, but Texas A&M is a top ten team under Kevin Sumlin, and Trevor Knight has been a savior for the Aggies. It wasn’t a perfect win over South Carolina, but it was good enough to move the Aggies into our top 10.
Tennessee showed why you never quit as a hail Mary catch was made at the end of the game to beat Georgia on the road. Tennessee is also in our top 10, and seems to play up to better competition. They get that this week in the Aggies.
Ole Miss had a fairly easy time of it against Memphis in a non con game this week, rolling 48-28. Back to the SEC grind this week.
Arkansas also had an easy go this week against FCS member Alcorn State, which is a game that never should have been played.
Florida always ends up in defensive struggles against Vanderbilt, but as long as they win them, it matters not.
Auburn had an easy win this week over UL-Monroe at home. Nothing can be taken from it, but the Tigers hit the road to take on Mississippi State this week.
LSU won one for Ed Orgeron this week, and the Tigers woke up from their slumber to pound Missouri 42-7. That was a nice bounce back for LSU.
FAIL: Kentucky, South Carolina, Georgia, Vanderbilt, Missouri
There is really no way at this point that I can see Mark Stoops coaching Kentucky after this season. The Wildcats were not on the same planet as Alabama Saturday.
South Carolina still has zero offense, which was a problem for Will Muschamp at Florida as well. The similarities may not end there eventually.
Georgia could not come up with a stop, and bad coverage at the end cost the Bulldogs a winnable game at home against Tennessee this week.
Vanderbilt continues to be inept on offense, but they can always play great D against Florida. That said, it is not enough. Derek Mason still has no dependable offensive play makers.Missouri completely laid an egg against a team that fired their coach last week. Losing 42-7 to LSU just makes you wonder what is going on in Columbia.
