Early SEC Football Predictions for 2014

College Basketball's 10 Midseason Breakout Players

The list of breakout players for 2013-14 got an early start.

The first name on the countdown of the biggest surprise players, at least chronologically, started Nov. 19 when Wisconsin center Frank Kaminsky scored 43 points on North Dakota. Opponent aside, this was a guy who had averaged 2.5 points per game in two seasons before the start of the 2013-14 season.

Kaminsky, of course, hasn’t been the only revelation.

More than any recent week, upsets shook up this week’s NCAA Tournament projections.

Clemson upset Duke, Indiana upset Wisconsin and Arkansas upset Kentucky to shape some of the NCAA Tournament hopes for a handful of teams in different ways.

No one had to wait until Dec. 28 to see the 2013-14 didn’t really go as anyone expected.

By then, Kansas had already lost three times, Duke twice and North Carolina had proven itself as the most unpredictable team in the country.

But Dec. 28 was the day Kentucky and Louisville — the last two national champions and preseason top two teams — met. At that point, both teams were still seeking their best win of the season.

Nick Saban Already Trying to Motivate Alabama for 2014

Losses to Auburn and Oklahoma aren’t sitting well with Alabama coach Nick Saban. And believe it or not, despite the fact the 2013 season just ended on Jan. 6, Saban has already started to work on motivating his team for next year.

The Crimson Tide ended the 2013 on a two-game losing streak, dropping contests to Auburn and Oklahoma.

And as the poster hanging in every Alabama locker indicates, Saban doesn’t want to repeat that two-game losing streak next season.

Arizona RB Ka'Deem Carey Declares for NFL Draft

Arizona running back Ka’Deem Carey has announced his intention to enter the 2014 NFL Draft.

Carey was one of the top running backs in the nation over the last two years, rushing for 1,885 yards and 19 touchdowns in 2013. His numbers were even better as a sophomore in 2012, recording 1,929 yards and 23 scores on 303 attempts.

After recording over 300 rushing attempts in back-to-back seasons, Carey has plenty of mileage on his legs and moving to the NFL is the right move.

Carey could be the first running back selected in the 2014 NFL Draft.
