SEC on SBN // 10.21.08

The best writing about the best conference on the best blogging network

Roll Bama Roll takes an intriguing look at whether Glen Coffee's fumbling issues could lead to more carries for Mark Ingram.

From the numbers alone, Coffee is still the leader so far as carries go, and was only equalled or eclipsed in the blowout wins...at least until Ole Miss. [...] It's in the fourth quarter where things get interesting, as Coffee's only carry resulted in a lost fumble and Ingram carrying the load the rest of the way (he got seven more carries before the game was over).

Something to watch as the season goes on -- and no one better, really than RBR to watch it.

A Sea of Blue is urging Kentucky fans to remain patient with the rebuilding process underway. It's rare to find fans at traditionally downtrodden institutions trying to raise to greatness coughcoughSouthCarolinacoughcough that have the kind of patience Truzenzuzex asks for, and Kentucky fans appear to be no exception.

A good basketball team (not a dynasty, mind you but a good team) can be built in four or five years by the right guy, but it takes much longer to build a football program. [...] UK has often had some good athletes and skill players over the years, but we have usually had inferior lines that were as thin as parchment, and the lines are where the Great Powers of the SEC differ from the Kentuckys and the Vanderbilts.

Much of this hand-wringing comes after Rich Brooks laced into fans for deserting the team shortly before its miraculous rally to beat Arkansas. South Carolina had this problem, too, notably in the 2006 season. Tru, of course, is right: It takes time to win in the SEC.

Rocky Top Talk, meanwhile, is apparently ecstatic over the emergence of Lennon Creer and the possibility that the team might be on pace to now gain more than, you know, one yard on the ground. (See: Georgia, loss to) Hooper calls the 11-rush, 51-yard drive "the most beautiful thing a football team can do with the ball." Lou Holtz would agree, but only if the quarterback were the one doing the running.
