  1. Huff/Smallwood matchup will be an immovable object vs a unstoppable force

  3. Battle at Bryant-Denny Xavier Burroughs and Dwayne Maddox exchanging words at last year's rivalry game. In one of the most anticipated games of this season, LSU (3-0) who is looking to secure the #1 spot from SEC rival Auburn, takes on a very hungry Alabama (3-0) team looking to make their case for the SEC West and for the Playoffs. Taking place at Bryant-Denny Stadium, LSU is going into one of the loudest and most proud stadiums in the country. After departure of HC randye4 last season, new HC CadeRich5 is facing his biggest challenge yet. Can he keep his composure while faced against Tiger's HC cmcgill? Below is the tale of the tape. Case for the Crimson Tide Alabama currently sits at an expected (3-0) and has been led on defense by Sebastian Smallwood who currently has 6 sacks on the season. More than the entire LSU defense has (4). The dominant defense will be facing an amazing LSU offensive line which has averaged an OL rating of 7.40, second only to Vanderbilt (7.43). If Sebastian Smallwood can penetrate this wall developed by cmcgill, will that be enough pressure to rattle redshirt Junior QB Elias Allen-Hollis? So far Crimson Tide QB Antonio Pugh has had a great start to this season and is currently leading the SEC in yards (895), tied for TD's (7), and pass attempts (108). The receiving duo of A.J. Edwards and Drew Abbott have combined for 5 TDs and 496 yards so far this season. If HC CadeRich5 and the Crimson Tide can come in and repeat these results up against one of the best defenses in the country, they have a shot at this game. Case for the Tigers So far cmcgill's Tigers are the best team in the country arguably. With the fall of PSU last week, they have a good shot at being ranked #1 in this weeks polls which at the time of the writing on this article still haven't been released. The outstanding offensive line that cmcgill has assembled in Baton Rouge has allowed Elias Allen-Hollis and Jayden Huff to really run their offense. Jayden Huff is currently leading the SEC in YPC for running backs and 2nd in TD's with 6. Does CadeRich5 have the supporting cast up front to help out Smallwood and stop Huff? So far this dynamic offense has found a way to get it done, if Huff is off, get the ball to Maddox. Their air attack has been just as good as their dominate running game. But just like the Tiger's, CadeRich5 has a very strong offensive line that the defense will have to fight through to get to the quarterback. Overall it seems like whoever can stop the offensive attack will be the team who will end up on top of this rivalry game. This game will be one of the most hyped and most hard fought games we will see in the SEC this season. Both of these teams are full of talent, and coached by experienced staff. But when the sun sets in Tuscaloosa, both of these teams will have to leave it all on the field in order to win.

  7. Week 3 South Carolina Gamecocks Press Conference Final Score UMass Minutemen - 0 (0-2) @ South Carolina Gamecocks - 58 (1-2) Player of the Game Milo Condon, SCAR, 20 of 29 for 309 yards, 4 TD, 0 INT 8 for 93 yards, 1 TD "Well first and most importantly... didn't Milo put on a show out there today. Coming into this year I really hoped he would step up as a leader, and I think today was him showing his true potential. I'd like to thank these boys for coming out here today and playing an amazing game for the full 60 minutes. Getting my first win as a CFBHC coach, and doing it in fashion. I feel like those first two weeks this new coaching staff were working together to really find what works, and you guys can see the results of us getting it done. Milo throwing for over 300 yards and averaging over 10 yards a run this week really impressed me. Like I've said we were always worried about his ball security, but this year has been different for him. I'm really at a loss for words.. *looks at stat sheet* these guys all the way down the board really showed me something this week. But these celebrations are going to have to be short-lived. Next week we're finishing up our 3 week home stretch here at Williams-Brice Stadium, and taking on a Wake Forest team coming off their first win last Thursday.. I was watching their game against North Texas at my house with the staff, my wife insisted we have them over for dinner. So we all got a good look at this team.. I think we're gonna have to watch out for Oscar Sanderson. He's already at 4 TD's in 2 games, but we plan to lock him down. Our defense got the shut out this week, and they were all celebrating their great performance, which I think is good for them. They definitely deserved it. If we're able to shut down Sanderson, I don't see a way for Wake to win this game over us. I think our first two games, despite them being losses, really got our guys playing a whole lot harder. I mean you saw what FSU did to UMass last week, our numbers were close to up there with them. Anyways I know these guys are going to keep working hard continuing into this week. Milo is really showing to be a true duel threat, and I think our offense is dynamic enough to where if one guy has a bad night, someone else is going to step up in their place. There were a lot of questions about Sean and Kenny's playmaking ability, but if we can keep this up I'm excited to see where this team will go. The floor is now open to questions"
  8. Well since I go to Alabama, it would definitely have to be them. But I know that I would have to pry them from @CadeRich5's cold dead hands. I think I got very lucky when I was able to come to the SEC though, and really love getting to play all the very experienced guys in conference play. I just don't have experience or will have the experience for a while that @randye4 did that led them to greatness. I think so far they've been in very good hands and I know that there is pressure to keep that success up, which I know Cade has to be feeling heavy right now, but no one wants to be the guy that messes up the best program. That is the main reason I'd rather just stay than try to restart somewhere else. I never really had a specific connection to South Carolina, but its cool being able to work with a program almost finished with a rebuild (S/O @joedchi) so I dont see myself moving anytime soon especially if I start seeing success at South Carolina.
  9. I think this week Kenny had the ball plenty of times. I know that Vandy is a tough opponent but failing to get into the end zone is unacceptable. Sean and Milo were averaging around 20 yards a catch this week. Dave Bruce and Keith Royal only had one catch each but they were both 20+ yard snags. Sean has proven that he can make those big catches we need, but my main concern has been Condon's shotty past with INT's. I don't want to be putting more responsibility on him before he's ready. That's why I think next week against UMass will be the big opening point for some players who really want that major weapon role.
  10. The losses will make the victories even sweeter... especially those victories in Clemson.
  11. Week 2 South Carolina Gamecocks Press Conference Final Score #16 Vanderbilt Commodores - 27 (2-0) @ South Carolina Gamecocks - 13 (0-2) "Dropping your first two games as a head coach is always rough, I came into this year knowing that we could put almost any team in the SEC on upset alert. I think we were in striking distance against Georgia, but our offense hasn't been able to find the endzone as much as I would like us to. We finally have Milo throwing the ball to the right team most of the time, but it just seems like we're a few more games with this young group together before they really take off together. But there are always positives to take away from a game like this, we had a big performance from our linebacking core, who have really taken a leadership role on that side of the ball. We were also able to keep the ball out of Jordan Tucker's hands, who took over against Oregon. I'm proud of my team to keep him off the stat sheet. The amount of penalties we had this game were absolutely ridiculous, and that is a big problem we need to nip in the bud before it becomes a big problem. Facing two ranked opponents back to back can really tire out the guys, who really played their hearts out. I'm proud of them. Looking forward to next week against UMass, this is really where I see the turning point of this season. We have two more games at home to really turn this ship around, and get some momentum before we go into Texas A&M and Florida, which I think will match up well against us. SEC play is where we have to make a difference, I know that this program has been dying to get back bowling. Those two games will be key. I'm hoping Milo Condon can find his comfort zone against UMass. So far this year he's done a good job of not turning the ball over, but now I'm hoping to see his full potential. Milo and Sean McDermott have been spending a lot of extra time after practice working on routes and I think it will be showing off this next week. The floor is now open for questions."
