Welcome back to Around the SEC!
A holiday hiatus kept us from keeping you up to date on all things going on in your favorite conference. However, we’re back, and with the same format as from when we left you last. Let’s dive right in shall we?
In this edition of The Top Whatever, EDSBS’ Spencer Hall makes sure to note that the Atlantic Coast Conference was a lot more fun to watch than the Southeastern Conference this season. Honestly, considering that it was Alabama and the 13 Dwarves (shout out to TSK’s Julian Council for that), it’s a statement that probably has lots of credibility slapped onto it. Nevertheless, it’s a fun read as always from Spencer. Be sure to check it out.
SB Nation’s ace recruiting writer has high praise for LSU’s newest head coach. And for a lot of reasons too. But while many are making comparisons, Bud likens Orgeron to the head coach of the Clemson Tigers: Dabo Swinney, who, like Orgeron, has been a very good recruiter at Clemson and helped dole out NFL talent by the dozen it seems. If LSU gets their version of Dabo Swinney, well, hell, the Bayou Bengals are gonna do alright.
Kentucky absolutely obliterated Arizona State (A Sea of Blue)
The Wildcats put on an incredibly impressive performance against the Wildcats last night at the Battle 4 Atlantis Showcase game. In their ‘tuneup’ for UCLA on Saturday, Kentucky won by almost 50 points against the Sun Devils. Seriously. Six players dropped double figures with Malik Monk leading the way with 23 points and Isaiah Briscoe dropping 20. De’Aaron Fox had a double-double and...
Yeah. Kentucky is really freaking good.
Lane to LSU? Maybe (And The Valley Shook)
Is Coach Orgeron gonna poach Lane from ‘Bama? It could happen! But if they don’t get them, ATVS has some other possibilities for the job ranging from Sark to Lincoln Riley, to Jeff Brohm and the legendary Bob Stitt.
