    LSU Tigers 2019 Record: (10-3) (6-2) Conference Finish: SEC West Champions Key Losses: OG John Stewart 6-3 299 (Sr) Chalmette (Chalmette, LA) 3.5 of 3.5 [Run Blocking] OLB Robert Hernandez 6-4 242 (Sr) South Lake (Groveland, FL) 4.0 of 4.0 [Blitz] CB Eugene Malone 6-0 190 (Sr) Puckett (Puckett, MS) 5.0 of 5.0 [Man Coverage] CB Ronnie Bailey 5-9 186 (Sr) Gentry (Indianola, MS) 5.0 of 5.0 [Man Coverage] SS Carter Leavitt 6-1 193 (Jr) Donaldsonville (Donaldsonville LA) 4.5 of 4.5 [Zone Coverage] Key Returners: QB Elias Allen-Hollis 6-1 204 (Jr) Donaldsonville (Donaldsonville, LA) 4.0 of 4.0 [Scrambling] RB Jayden Huff 5-7 213 (Sr) Lake Providence (Lake Providence LA) 4.5 of 4.5 [Speed] FB Julius Gaston 5-10 210 Sr Danville Community College (Danville, VA) 4.5 of 4.5 [Pass Blocking] WR Dwayne Maddox 6-2 180 Sr St. Louis Community College-Forest Park (St. Louis, MO) 4.5 of 4.5 [Speed] OT Brendan Lowe 6-2 260 (So) Westminster Academy (Opelousas, LA) 5.0 of 5.0 [Pass Blocking] DT Cameron Street 6-2 317 (Sr) Lake Providence (Lake Providence LA) 4.5 of 4.5 [2-Gap] OLB Alexander Burton 6-1 237 (So) Apalachicola (Apalachicola, FL) 4.0 of 4.5 [Blitz] FS Jeremy Whitehead 5-11 206 (So) White Knoll (Lexington, SC) 5.0 of 5.0 [Zone Coverage] K Wyatt Abel 6-1 152 (Jr) Baker (Mobile, AL) 4.0 of 4.0 [Accuracy] Strengths Alexander Burton - Rarely is it that a single player is a team's entire strength, but thats just how good the Reaper is. Burton is one of the greatest to ever be a LSU Tiger linebacker, and this is a team that produced the likes of Tyrone Jones and Peyton Roaches. The Reaper had a sensational freshman season in 2019, winning All-SEC honors, SEC Defensive Freshman of the Year, SEC Defensive Player of the Year, and All-American honors. He's absurdly talented and looks to be one of the best players not just in the conference, but in the entire nation for 2020. Veteran Experience - Elias Allen-Hollis is one of the most underrated quarterbacks in the nation, and the junior leads one of the most talented, experienced offenses college football has ever seen. Senior Jayden Huff balances out the unit, but its the senior trio of Adam Vann, Dwayne Maddox, and Corey Garvin that will be doing the damage down the field. Defensively, mauling nosetackle Cameron Street leads the charge from the front for a very talented defense. Coach McGill is going to have a blast coaching this team of vets. Weaknesses Inexperience in the Secondary - The Tigers replaced 3 of their 4 secondary starters last season, and while Eddie Quarless, Clay Vereen, and Emmanuel Hooker are all very talented players, they're not experienced. I say it'll take them a few games to gel into a strong unit around Jeremy Whitehead, so while this group will be very good in the future, I think they'll have some struggles early on. Mental Pressure - LSU is one of the major contenders for the National Championship, but the pressure may just be overwhelming for some of these players. Some of these guys are just teenagers but they're expected to be major contributors for one of the top teams in the nation. At 19, I struggled cooking my own dinners, but these guys not only have the pressure of high expectations, they also have the weight of Tiger Nation on their shoulders. I sure hope this squad can find mental toughness easily. Season Expectations Louisiana knows just how much talent LSU has. Playoff appearance is minimum, but they think this is a title winning team. Season Prediction Best case scenario: Perfect season into LSU's second ever National Championship. Worst case scenario: 8-4. Believe it or not, I think if LSU plays down to their opposition they'll be in a world of hurt against high ceiling teams like Auburn, Bama, Tennessee, and Mississippi State. Its not likely, but its definitely something that could happen. Realistic prediction: I don't think they'll be an underdog in any game this season. 11-1, dropping a game, but they should be SEC West Champions and are the favorite to win the SEC Championship.

    Duke Football does not have a prestigious history. They are among the worst programs in CFBHC History. But, things are turning around in Durham. You can sense it on the field. The players are attentive and locked in, the coaches are yelling and cheering them on. There is an aura of hope in the air. Coach Darman has made his mark on the recruiting trail the last couple of years and the fruit of that effort is starting to be felt on the field. He stands aside, watching Bryce Thompson toss out routes with Sean Spaczek. He doesn't say anything, just smiles. You can tell he has hope for this season. Duke finished 2019 3-9 and for once, that actually felt disappointing instead of expected. Coach Darman was willing to sit down and speak with us briefly. 1. You got off to a promising start in 2019 and then struggled in conference play, what's the key to avoiding that this year? Being consistent in our effort on a week to week basis. Our team is more experienced than it was last year after starting a freshman QB for the second consecutive year. We still have a lot of youth on our team so it is up to the older guys to give guidance to first year starters on how to prepare well for games and other things that can make you a successful team. 2. Everything we've seen/heard from Duke's spring has shown that Bryce Thompson has taken a huge step forward. Why stay with Kyle Jefferson? Bryce Thompson has had a good spring. All of our QBs have shown improvement. Neither one of them have won or lost the starting job at this point and Kyle is currently at the top of our depth chart because he was there last year. As spring progresses we might see a different lineup on the depth chart for all of our positions. There is never a time where there isn't a position battle. It's just a matter of who is closer to earning his starting spot. Editorial Note: Since we sat down with Coach Darman, Bryce Thompson was moved to the top of the Depth Chart. Their Respective Performances in the Spring Game: Bryce Thompson - 20-32 209 Yards, 3 TD, 1 INT 142.05 QB Rating Kyle Jefferson - 18-33 275 Yards, 1 TD, 1 INT 128.48 QB Rating 3. You have a new face to your running game, what does Christian Collins need to do this season? Christian Collins just needs to do what he did all through high school and in practices last year. Just play effective football. He's a talented player, but he is young. We expect big things from him in the future, but for now we just need him to just have fun, and put in work. We don't expect Akili Wallace from him, but just improvement from week to week. 4. How much do Kai Betts and Ahmed Mark really mean to your defense? Kai and Ahmed are our leaders. They are experienced players, and both occupy spots in the Duke record book already. Both are players who will be remembered after they leave. Ahmed is a 2 time All ACC performer and Kai Betts has the potential to do that as well. The whole defense follows their lead. What they do on the field and off the field. To have had the opportunity to coach these young men, I couldn't have been more lucky. 5. Your starting secondary has each had at least one year as a starter. How will they lean on that experience in the upcoming season? Our secondary is one of our deeper and more experienced position groups. They got beat up some last season but they all have had a strong spring. Jeremy Easter, who is our veteran leader of this group needs to get back to what worked his Freshman year in order for us to have success. Our secondary will go how he goes. He's the trend setter. If he does well he makes our entire defense better. The rest of our defense now knows how to deal with the long season and how to make improvement every week of the year and how to prepare on and off the field. 6. Lastly, what are your expectations for 2020? Week to week improvement. We have a good football team, with a good mix of youth and experience. We will get better every day, and every week. We play some good football teams, including many we have struggled with in the past. But this team has the ability to get over the hump and get us into the postseason. I don't expect perfection, but I expect for our team to put in the work to get better and better every week.

    it seems like a lot of MWC teams had a lot of massive holes ignored whereas the PAC's transfers were relatively generous. probably something to avoid in the future imo.

    So the MAC and the MWC lost talent while the PAC gained a lot...this is not in sync with real conference strength at all. Maybe this is something worth considering in the future.

    I'm salty Oklahoma got two good DEs, mostly because i wanted to see what those 1.0 skill frosh could do with the big boys in the XII. This is nothing against Ted, but that was a HUGE gift from the transfer gods. (Also i play Oklahoma in OOC and was hoping I could destroy that line ) Can't say I'm mad about landing DE Zion Lanier 6-2 256 (Sr) Thomas Jefferson (Bloomington MN) 3.5 of 3.5 [Contain] from Kansas to Iowa though, hell be a good addition to the Iowa defense.

    Georgia Bulldogs 2019 Record: (8-5) (4-3) Conference Finish: 4th in the SEC East Key Losses: FB Kayden Dozier 5-10 228 Sr Enterprise-Ozark Community College (Enterprise, AL) 5.0 of 5.0 [Run Blocking] WR Andres Jenkins 5-9 163 (Sr) Springfield (Springfield, LA) 4.0 of 4.0 [Speed] TE Jordan Kemp 6-3 225 (Jr) St. Clair County Community College (Port Huron, MI) 4.5 of 4.5 [Blocking] DE Greg Lambert 6-3 255 (Sr) Elbert County (Elberton, GA) 4.0 of 4.0 [Contain] DT David Crawford 6-5 317 (Sr) McClellan Magnet (Little Rock, AR) 4.0 of 4.0 [2-Gap] DT Nigel McKinney 6-4 296 Sr Waycross College (Waycross, GA) 5.0 of 5.0 [1-Gap] OLB Angel Bailey 6-2 228 (Sr) Leeds (Leeds, AL) 4.5 of 4.5 [Coverage] ILB C.J. Thomas 6-4 240 Sr Oxford (Oxford MS) 5.0 of 5.0 [Mike] CB Scott Tran 6-0 176 (Sr) Tucumcari (Tucumcari, NM) 4.0 of 4.0 [Zone Coverage] SS Jose Leon 5-11 202 (Sr) West Lincoln (Brookhaven, MS) 5.0 of 5.0 [Zone Coverage] Key Returners: QB Salvatore Tanner 6-3 228 (Sr) Heber Springs (Heber Springs AR) 4.0 of 4.0 [Scrambling] RB Isaac Wilson 6-0 210 (Sr) Barron Collier (Naples FL) 4.5 of 4.5 [Power] FB Raphael Meadows 5-9 259 (Jr) Boyd County (Ashland, KY) 4.5 of 4.5 [Run Blocking] WR Ja'Wuan Howard 6-2 186 Jr Waycross College (Waycross GA) 4.0 of 5.0 [Target] OT Shane McCord 6-6 290 (So) Baker (Mobile, AL) 5.0 of 5.0 [Run Blocking] C Robert Troutman 6-1 299 (Sr) Hernando (Brooksville FL) 4.5 of 4.5 [Pass Blocking] DT Mendy Barth 6-6 302 (Jr) Ohatchee (Ohatchee, AL) 4.0 of 4.0 [1-Gap] ILB Alex Felder 6-1 217 (Sr) Rowan County (Morehead KY) 4.0 of 4.0 [Mike] ATH Dominique Dawkins 6-2 199 (So) Raines (Jacksonville, FL) 5.0 of 5.0 [Man Coverage] K Luke Bowers 6-0 216 Sr Fond du Lac (Cloquet, MN) 4.5 of 4.5 [Power] P Benjamin Biggs 5-7 189 (Sr) Columbine (Littleton CO) 4.5 of 4.5 [Power] Strengths Special Teams - Luke Bowers is an unbelievable kicker. The 2019 First Team All-SEC kicker hit a nation long 59 yarder last season, and was arguably snubbed for the best kicker in college football. Meanwhile, Benjamin Biggs is no laughing matter, delivering a solid average of 42.84, second best in SEC last season. Though an often underlooked part in football, you can bet that this dynamic duo will be giving it their all for the Dawgs. Top to Bottom Experience - On both sides of the ball, its hard to say that Georgia isn't the most experienced team heading into this 2020 season for the SEC. Seniors at quarterback, running back, multiple offensive linemen, inside linebacker, cornerback, and both special teamers will give Coach Lasercats a very dependable corps of leaders that can bring it every game this season. Weaknesses Salvatore Tanner/Lasercats Dynamic - I think this is going to be the biggest question mark heading into 2020. Can Lasercats get the best out of Georgia's QB? Last season, Tanner showed his efficiency, but to take Georgia to the next level I think he's going to need to be a star. He needs to find the end zone more, with only 11 touchdowns last season with his arm and legs. He's got better weapons in the passing game and an improved offensive line. Just depends if he can execute the gameplan better. Defensive Line - This unit graduated 3 NFL caliber players last season. 3 seniors. While it is something to be proud of, this is absolutely horrific coming into 2020. Junior Mendy Barth will be the key cog, but he is not going to get much support across the line like the devestating McKinney-Lambert combo of yesteryear. Against some of the nations best offensive lines in Tennessee and Florida, it will be very interesting to see how this young Bulldog unit performs. Season Expectations Its Year 2 in the Lasercats era afte a slightly disappointing Year 1. Bulldogs fans are hungry for success. A strong run for the SEC East Division title is what the fans in Athens wants! Season Prediction Best case scenario: Salvatore Tanner turns it on and plays like a man possessed. Isaac Wilson is a dark horse Heisman candidate and the Bulldogs storm out of Atlanta with an SEC Championship, a perfect record, and a spot in the College Football Playoffs. Worst case scenario: This solid team just cannot find a star that is willing to step up. An embarassing defeat to a very weak Florida team highlights their season as the Bulldogs go 6-6 and just barely slide into a bowl game. Realistic prediction: 10-2. Season starts off shakey with defeats to Auburn and Vandy by week 7. The Dawgs then go ahead and run the table, but that loss to Vandy is a nightmare that keeps them from finding their spot in Atlanta for the Conference Championship.

    Mississippi State Bulldogs 2019 Record: (9-3) (5-2) Conference Finish: 3rd in the SEC West Key Losses: RB Terrence Rodgers 6-0 173 (Sr) Copiah-Lincoln Community College (Wesson, MS) 5.0 of 5.0 [Speed] WR James Richardson 6-0 156 (Sr) Jemison (Jemison, AL) 4.5 of 4.5 [Speed] TE Patrick Glass 6-6 203 Sr Hinds CC (Raymond, MS) 5.0 of 5.0 [Receiving] OT Conor Crane 6-6 303 Sr Enterprise-Ozark Community College (Enterprise, AL) 4.5 of 4.5 [Pass Blocking] DE Tyler Jones 6-1 257 Sr Oxford College of Emory University (Oxford, GA) 5.0 of 5.0 [Contain] DT Corey Johnson 6-4 317 (Sr) Sheffield (Memphis, TN) 4.0 of 4.0 [1-Gap] P Erik May 6-4 178 Sr Godby (Tallahassee FL) 4.0 of 4.0 [Power] Key Returners: QB Ryder Shipman 6-3 199 (Jr) Pope John Paul II (Boca Raton, FL) 4.0 of 4.0 [Pocket] FB James O'Connell 6-1 254 (Sr) Moss Point (Moss Point MS) 4.0 of 4.0 [Run Blocking] WR Ryan Childs 5-11 150 (So) Enterprise (Brookhaven, MS) 4.0 of 5.0 [Speed] TE Frank Cuellar 6-4 205 (So) Russell County (Seale, AL) 3.5 of 4.0 [Receiving] OG Junie Wilson 6-3 266 Jr Meridian Community College (Meridian MS) 4.0 of 4.0 [Pass Blocking] ATH Devin Ruff 6-1 233 (So) Paxon (Jacksonville, FL) 3.5 of 5.0 [Mike] ILB Jalen Britt 6-1 232 (Fr) North Central (Kershaw, SC) 2.5 of 5.0 [Will] OLB Brady Christiansen 6-0 249 Sr Copiah-Lincoln CC (Wesson, MS) 5.0 of 5.0 [Coverage] FS Alfredo Herrera 5-10 183 (Sr) Irwin County (Ocilla GA) 4.5 of 4.5 [Zone Coverage] SS Maxwell Winslow 6-2 172 (Sr) Brentwood Academy (Brentwood TN) 4.0 of 4.0 [Zone Coverage] Strengths Safety Pair - Herrera and Winslow combine to be one of the most experienced safety pairs in the SEC. Two redshirt seniors with professional football aspirations anchor the backline of this defense easily. I'd be surprised if they get beat with speed deep. The two surehanded tacklers should be able to help the best part of their defense... Linebackers - ... which is their linebackers! Brady Christiansen plays like a potential first round pick. Devin Ruff was a tackling machine in his freshman year and Jalen Britt looks to make a big impact on the field as a freshman. It's going to be tough to run or pass on this Bulldog defense. Weaknesses Inconsistent Passing Attack - Ryan Childs is an elite level talent, but can Ryder Shipman consistently get him and the other targets the ball? Shipman had a solid year last season, but the Bulldogs are going to need him to play better if they want to make noise in the SEC. Pressuring the Quarterback - 2019 #1 overall selection Tyler Jones is gone, as is stud defensive tackle Corey Johnson. Just who on this Bulldogs defense is going to get pressure on the likes of guys like Elias Allen-Hollis, Marcus Black, and the other star passers in the SEC? Xavier McGill looks to be the man, but without the star power of Jones across the line from him can he supply enough pressure? Season Expectations Mississippi State fans know just how much talent they lost last year, and expect a small set back. 6-6 is acceptable, 8-4 is the dream. CLANGA Season Prediction Best case scenario: 10-2. The young bulldogs play up to their potential, winning every game but Florida State and LSU. Worst case scenario: Honestly, 0-12 could happen. The Bulldogs are very young, so these two scenarios are extremely polarizing. Realistic prediction: 7-5, losses to LSU, Auburn, Alabama, Georgia, and Florida State. Tough games against Air Force and Boston College, but I think the Bulldogs can pull out wins for the rest of their season.

    Kentucky Wildcats 2019 Record: (3-9) (0-7) Conference Finish: 7th in the SEC East Key Losses: FB John Hernandez 6-2 254 (Sr) Beth Haven (Valley Station, KY) 4.5 of 4.5 [Run Blocking] WR Robert Santiago 6-0 163 (Sr) Charleston (Charleston, MO) 4.0 of 4.0 [Speed] OG Robert Grant 6-3 291 (Sr) Bolton (Arlington, TN) 4.5 of 4.5 [Run Blocking] DE Bryce Littlejohn 6-0 244 Sr Indian Hills Community College-Ottumwa (Falcons, IA) 4.0 of 4.0 [Contain] OLB Stephen Carpenter 6-1 223 (Sr) West Carter (Olive Hill, KY) 4.0 of 4.0 [Blitz] CB James Ortiz 5-10 195 (Sr) Westside (Memphis, TN) 4.0 of 4.0 [Man Coverage] Key Returners: QB Elijah McManus 5-10 196 (So) Norphlet (Norphlet, AR) 2.5 of 5.0 [Pocket] RB Marc Purdy 6-0 191 (Jr) Horatio (Horatio, AR) 3.5 of 4.0 [Speed] WR Quinn Walters 6-4 216 (Fr) Carroll (Monroe, LA) 2.0 of 5.0 [Speed] TE Omar Prescott 6-3 231 (Sr) Scott County (Georgetown KY) 4.0 of 4.0 [Blocking] C Ari Flint 6-1 293 (Jr) J.A. Fair (Little Rock, AR) 4.0 of 4.0 [Pass Blocking] DT George Sorenson 6-4 303 (Sr) Warner Robins (Warner Robins GA) 4.0 of 4.0 [2-Gap] ILB Abdoul Gordon 6-1 217 (Sr) Chamberlain (Tampa FL) 4.5 of 4.5 [Mike] OLB Gabriel Andersen 6-1 223 (Sr) Seneca (Seneca SC) 4.0 of 4.0 [Coverage] SS Ronan O’Brien 6-1 191 (Sr) Campbellsville (Campbellsville KY) 4.5 of 4.5 [Zone Coverage] K Tyler Oliva 6-4 158 (Sr) Chester (Chester SC) 4.0 of 4.0 [Accuracy] Strengths Linebackers - While they lost Stephen Carpenter to the NFL, the dynamic duo of Abdoul Gordon and Akiva Beaver were a tackling tandem in the SEC East and Gabriel Andersen is a guy that can crush the quarterback or stop the run. Carpenter's replacement Larry Stallings is no weak link either. Four redshirt seniors lead this unit against the world, and will need to play incredibly well for Kentucky to find success in 2020. Abdoul Gordon in particular is the key man for this Wildcat defense. The future NFL star is going to need to step up his game, and he seems ready for the role. Tyler Oliva - Cold blooded Tyler Oliva is one of the great kickers the SEC will see. The wirey 160 pounder hit an incredible 55 yard field goal last year, and gives Kentucky a scoring threat everytime he comes onto the gridiron. Last season he came up big for the Wildcats time and time again, and I expect Coach Rabidsnowman to put more trust in him and give him more opportunities to strike and put up 3 for the Wildcats this season. Weaknesses The Passing Game - Highly touted quarterback Elijah McManus is a huge question mark heading into his sophomore season and second year starting. Last season, the Wildcats aired it out nearly 75% of their plays, and McManus did not deliver. 54% completion, 9 touchdowns to 15 interceptions, a yards per attempt of 5.85 and a passer rating of 103.94 is not going to give good results for any offense. McManus needs to take a big step here for the Wildcats to find any success. Unfortunately for him, 2 of his top 3 targets from last year have graduated. Robert Santiago and Thomas Rankin are gone, while Tight End Omar Prescott looks to be the most talented receiver remaining with any experience. A lot is going to be expected out of redshirt freshman receiver Quinn Walters, but with such a big transition in his pass catchers its hard to see a better year out of McManus in 2020. Cornerback - The Wildcats have a whopping 16 cornerbacks on their roster. Of those 16, 14 are sophomores or younger! This is an extremely young and inexperienced unit and they're going to need to grow up quick against some of the dangerous receivers in the SEC East. Marquise Crawford-Britt is the key man to watch here. If he can compete with the likes of Marcus Holmes, DeAndre Felder, Sean McDermott, and Daniel Hobbs, Kentucky will be feeling a lot better about their pass defense. Season Expectations Kentucky was absolutely slaughtered last season, but it was an improvement over the 2-10 record from 2018. Boosters are unhappy, and its been 3 long years since the glory of their 2017 9-3 season. Wildcat fans would be happy with a 4-8 type year, and absolutely ecstatic if they could make a bowl game. Season Prediction Best case scenario: Kentucky's linebackers play incredibly, Elijah McManus turns it all around, and this team becomes absolutely SpOoKy. They run through Florida, Missouri, South Carolina, and even the SEC defending champs Tennessee for a 6-6 season and a bowl game. Worst case scenario: The passing offense is non existant and opposing teams key in on Marc Purdy and the run game. Unable to score or stop people from scoring, the Wildcats end 2020 with a disappointing 1-11 record. Realistic prediction: Its going to be a really tough year for Kentucky this season. 3-9, and I'm being optimistic. Wins over Syracuse, Cincinnati, and either Florida, Louisville, or Ole Miss.
