Topics for discussion

A full wrap-up of Saturday's action will come along Sunday evening, but a few things to think about until then:

If LSU and Auburn are worse than we thought, can anyone challenge Alabama? Auburn lost to Arkansas in a fashion that should, by itself, explain this statement: The Tigers are just not very good this year. Meanwhile, LSU got blown out of the water by Florida in a game that made the Bayou Bengals' offense and defense look suspect. If neither Auburn nor LSU can rebound, there is nothing to keep Alabama from making the SEC Championship Game, and maybe doing so undefeated.

What does the CROOMing of Vanderbilt tell us? Maybe not so much. Mississippi State has done this at least once a year under Sylvester Croom. The biggest indicator of where the Commodores are this year might be that this game was considered an upset. Unless, of course, the wheels fall off now. We'll know soon enough.

Who, exactly, is the SEC East front-runner? The question isn't really clear. Georgia didn't look overly impressive in taking care of Tennessee, but they still looked pretty good. Florida looked very good in demolishing LSU, but has a worse loss than Georgia (Ole Miss). And Vanderbilt has gone down; is that Vandy being Vandy or just another college football upset?

Name the person on this list most likely to still be coaching at their current institution next year: Phil Fulmer, Bobby Johnson, Bobby Petrino, Paul Rhoads and Tommy Tuberville.
