By Ryan Wright, 1 month 4 weeks ago
Texas A&M fans have been patient with head coach Kevin Sumlin, even if each season feels like déjà vu. After wowing the Aggie faithful with an 11-2 record and a Cotton Bowl win over Oklahoma in his 2012 debut, Sumlin set the bar high but a 9-4 showing in ’13 has given way to three consecutive 8-5 campaigns. On top of that, 2017 is shaping up to be a rebuilding year of sorts in College...

Auburn capped off its 2016 football season with a Sugar Bowl berth, where it got handled by Oklahoma 35-19. While the Tigers didn't finish the season well (losing three of their final four games), there were plenty of bright spots along the way, including a 7-2 mark in early November.   Auburn showed flashes of greatness with a relatively young team, and it ended up having one of the...

By Antwan Staley, 1 month 4 weeks ago
Jim McElwain’s second season as Florida’s head coach was very similar to his first. The Gators won the SEC East with an 9-4 record, but they again lost to Alabama in the SEC Championship Game. However, unlike like last season’s 41-7 loss to Michigan in the Citrus Bowl, Florida finished on a high note, blasting Iowa 30-3 in the Outback Bowl.   Now Gator fans not only want...

South Carolina Gamecocks 2017 Spring Football Preview

By Rob McVey, 2 months 5 days ago
The future was not looking very bright for the South Carolina Gamecocks around this time last year. First-year head coach Will Muschamp inherited a questionable roster from a team that had compiled a record of just 3-9 the year prior. And expectations were not much better for 2016 with the Gamecocks picked to finish dead last in the SEC East by most media outlets. While the season...
