The College Quickie: Ole Miss(ed), They Showed Me, Ramble On Wrecks, Rushing Man: Part Deux, Goin’ Out West, Gonna Send You Back To Georgia


And Arky saw an opportunity and took full advantage of it. Hugh witnessed his Rebels freeze in the cold and rain of The Natural State. It appears they are toothless without a running attack and no Laquon Treadwell to throw to. Bad Bo did toss two interceptions and his backup one. Mix in three fumbles and a highly motivated Razorback team and you have a recipe for a complete disaster in Fayetteville.+

Ole Miss now finds itself mathematically eliminated from the SEC West race. Arkansas was also officially out of the race several weeks back but they are getting it together in a big way. They have won their last two games, SEC tilts, by a combined score of 47-ZERO. And they didn’t play both of those games with Vanderbilt as the competition either. We’re talking LSU and Mississippi.+



The Missouri Tigers scaled ole Rocky Top and came back down with a victory. It didn’t hurt that the Vols had their leading tackler suspended either. Now the Tigers continue their pursuit of a second straight SEC East crown. I’m certainly not going to bet against them. And do you know who their final regular season opponent will be? That’s right! The Arkansas Razorbacks. The thick plottens!Maty MaukWhat do you think?

So look out in Columbia, MO this weekend folks! We should have ourselves another humdinger. And all the Georgia Bulldoggies (say that in your best Keith Jackson voice) can do is yell Soooooooiiiieeee PIG!!! It matters not one iota what Mark Richt’s charges do versus their instate rivals, Georgia Tech, Saturday. It all comes down to what transpires in Mizzou.+



Guess who will play the Florida State Seminoles for the ACC Championship??? (Hint above in the previous paragraph) That would be the Yellow Jackets from the Georgia Insitute of Technology, better know as Georgia Tech. And it matters not one iota what Paul Johnson’s charges do versus Mark Richt’s gang. Tech is headed to Charlotte for a showdown with the Noles Nation.+

The same goes for Tech as it does for Missouri. I would not wager against the Jackets either. Heck, why not just go all the way with this thing! You heard it first here sports fans…+

Georgia Tech 35, Florida State 3410ACCCGlogoWhat do you think?



So, Melvin Gordon, just when you thought you might have the new, single game, rushing record in your back pocket for a few years… BOOM!!!… Out jumps Oklahoma’s Samaje Perine! The Sooner running back ran over, around and through the Kansas Jayhawks defense for 427 yards. That is 19 yards more than Gordon’s 408 yards from LAST WEEK when Wisconsin dismantled Nebraska.+

What in the pigskin totin’name of tarnation is next??? I don’t think anything would surprise me at this point.+

Hey! Do you think Cameron Artis-Payne might run for 450 yards in Tuscaloosa Saturday Night? Don’t I wish! Just a little Iron Bowl teaser boys and girls. Cue up the Everly Brothers… “Dreeeeeeeeeam, dream dream dream…”+



“Where they appreciate me.” If you got that Tom Waits song reference you just won two tickets to the the Civil War in Corvallis, OR this Saturday night!!! Naaaaaaahhhhh… but the Ducks and Beavers will tee it up out there on this coming rivalry weekend. But beware! This college football season has been one long strange trip.oregonWhat do you think?

It would not be a total surprise if Oregon State silenced the Quack Attack but I’m not going to pick another gargantuan upset here in this one little column… Or will I??? (Insert second Iron Bowl teaser).+

I’m going to stick with Oregon in this one, and I’ll take UCLA to handle Stanford in Pasadena, to set up a PAC-12 Championship Game between the Ducks and the Bruins. No prediction… yet.+



Ok, I’m really getting into the song references now… AND two more “awrights” and you have my best Wooderson. I should charge admission and take this show on the road!+

Like I said… back to Georgia. Trivia time! What Mark Richt coached tailback has gained 100 yards in SIX consecutive games??? Did I hear Todd Gurley? No. Did I hear Knowshon Moreno? NOOOOO. Can I get a Herschel Walker? NO NO NO! That was under Vince Dooley. The answer is… Nick Chubb! The UGA freshman ran for 113 yards Saturday, versus mighty Charleston Southern, to accomplish that feat.+

Now, as mentioned above, the Bulldogs will have to await the outcome of the Missouri and Arkansas game to see if they will spend the night of December 6th in Atlanta or Athens.+

Alas, again no prediction.+



Ok, I’m getting happy with the song AND movie references. No more Iron Bowl teasers. It’s time to tackle the big one. Revenge for Bama or another stunner for the Tigers?+

Gotcha! We’ll get to that tomorrow in a piece on Rivalry Week. Same bat time! Same bat channel!+

“Where the skies are so blue…”+
