An SEC Christmas Vacation

Written by: Alex Abernathy (TheAbernasty) Ahhh Christmas time is upon us and the football season is wrapping up quicker than most would like. With Christmas approaching and college football’s regular season closing, it got me thinking; I really love SEC football. I also have watched the movie Christmas Vacation about 400 times. There has to be some way to tie together my two loves right? What if every SEC team’s football season could be described as a character from the movie? Sounds like a tall order, but that’s exactly what I’ve done. Which character best personifies your team’s season? Read along and find out, but fair warning – you might not like who you get. Alabama- Mary Mary is the beautiful woman that Clark runs into at the clothing store and later fantasizes about her swimming in the pool he wishes to open at his house. Mary is used throughout the movie as a symbol of perfection. She’s something that Clark and undoubtedly others, chase after even though they know they can never have her. If that isn’t Alabama’s football season in a nutshell, I don’t know what is. This team has been untouchable all season and no one looks like they can stop the Crimson Tide. Teams lust after Bama much like Clark with Mary. They will continue to fantasize about one day being the top dog, but for now it’s nothing more than a fantasy. Auburn- Clark Sr. Movie Quote: Clark: Our Holidays were always such a mess. Clark Sr.: Oh yeah. Clark: How’d ya do it? Clark Sr.: I had a lot of help from Jack Daniels Clark Sr. has learned something that Auburn fans are also rapidly having to come to [...]

Tennessee vs. No. 11 Kentucky Football Preview

Written by: Jake Wallman (@WallmanE75) Tennessee hosts Kentucky on Saturn for the 114th edition of the rivalry formerly known as “Battle of the Beer Barrel”.   While the presentation of the barrel to the winner of the game ended in 1998 the hate these two have for each other is alive and well. When Kentucky makes its way into Neyland Stadium Saturday they won’t only see a stadium, but a house of horrors as the Wildcats haven’t won in Knoxville since 1984. Since then it’s been 16 straight losses with an average score of 37.4 - 16.3 in favor of Tennessee. But now it’s Kentucky who’s enjoying a 7-2 season with a bowl berth already in place who’s looking to take advantage of Tennessee while they’re down. A win would further Kentucky’s opportunities at two things: a New Year’s Six bowl appearance and an eleven win season which would be the first since 1950 when Paul “Bear” Bryant was roaming the sidelines in Lexington. A win would give them six wins in the SEC which would be the first time since the program went 6-0 in 1977. Tennessee on the other hand? Well the Vols are just trying to stay afloat and reach the six win mark to earn a spot in post-season play. Injuries, inconsistent play across the board and just overall being out-matched in some games have plagued Tennessee this season.   Now let's take a look at how Tennessee matches up with Kentucky and what the Vols need to do to reach win number five and stay on track for a bowl game.   When you look at the numbers on offense for the Vols, nothing really jumps out as an amazing stat. The offense is [...]
