Approval rating for Missouri football coach Barry Odom: You decide

Year 2 of the Barry Odom era is looking a lot like Year 1 of the Odom era, and this is not a good thing. The Tigers are winless in SEC games, with their only wins coming against the likes of Missouri State and Idaho. Even worse, just about every SEC game has been a blowout, with the exception of a painful loss to Kentucky. Odom is already making changes, as he relieved defensive...

Browns fall in overtime to Titans, remain winless

Ryan Succop’s fourth field goal — a 47-yarder with 1:55 left in overtime — extended his NFL record for makes inside 50 yards to 55 straight and sent the Tennessee Titans to an ugly 12-9 win on Sunday over the winless Cleveland Browns, who also lost durable Pro Bowl tackle Joe Thomas with an injury. Succop’s clutch kick enabled the Titans (4-3) to get their second win in six...

Approval rating for Alabama football coach Nick Saban: You decide

Another year, another season with Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide on top of the college football world. Alabama is once again the No. 1 team in the country and has dominated just about every opponent it has faced so far, with only Texas A&M playing Alabama to single digits. But that talent and experience doesn’t mean Saban won’t have to overcome challenges. He hired ...

Approval rating for LSU football coach Ed Orgeron: You decide

Ed Orgeron, much like his predecessor Les Miles, has LSU on a roller coaster from week to week. Sometimes that means getting thumped by Mississippi State and losing at home to Troy. Other times, that means beating Florida and Auburn in back-to-back games. Orgeron became LSU’s full-time coach in November after taking over on an interim basis in September following the...

Things seem to be coming to an end for the Butch Jones era in Tennessee. The Volunteers have crumbled in the past month, dropping four consecutive SEC games. They lost to Florida on a Hail Mary, suffered one of the worst home losses in program history to Georgia, lost again to Will Muschamp and South Carolina, and once again got smashed by Alabama. Tennessee is 0-4 in SEC play...

Despite some early adversity, Will Muschamp has the Gamecocks well-positioned for a strong finish to the 2017 season. The Gamecocks have started 5-2, despite losing some of their top playmakers, including Deebo Samuel and Rico Dowdle, to significant injuries.

Approval rating for Texas A&M football coach Kevin Sumlin: You decide

Few coaches have done more to help their job status in the past month than Texas A&M’s Kevin Sumlin. After a miserable start to the season, the Aggies have turned things around and sit at 5-2 during their bye week. And perhaps most impressively, the Aggies played the No. 1-ranked Crimson Tide to a 27-19 game. The Aggies lost, but they have been the only team so far...

Former Arkansas QB Matt Jones: ‘Changes have to be made’

It’s one thing for a fan base to put pressure on a head coach. It’s quite another when former players start voicing their displeasure. Former quarterback Matt Jones is likely a voice that should be taken seriously. He was a former first round pick in the 2005 NFL Draft and led the Razorbacks under center from 2002-2004. Saturday night he made his displeasure known...

Now that Ole Miss is past halfway into its season, Matt Luke now has seven games under his belt. And the results so far, they are mixed.

Heading into the Florida-Georgia game, Jim McElwain’s career at Florida appears to be at a crossroads. The Gators have dropped two in a row and sit at 3-3 in McElwain’s third year. The offense, which has shuffled quarterbacks once again, is still sputtering, and the defense is starting to slip due to injuries and a loss of talent. And the Gators’ opponent in the World&rsquo...

Even the biggest Kirby Smart supporters couldn’t have imagined this kind of start to his second year. The Bulldogs have opened the 2017 season on a tear, going 7-0 in their first seven games.

Top SEC Freshmen Performances: 2 DBs among our top 5 standouts for Week 8

Quarterbacks have dominated the headlines among SEC freshmen throughout the first seven weeks of the season.

Off the Marq: Talking Rashaan Evans and what’s ahead in November for Alabama football

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Watching Alabama football is weird. The Crimson Tide’s game vs. Tennessee was only 7-0 for a quarter and a half, but there was never a time where it felt like Alabama was in danger of losing to Tennessee on Saturday. Alabama was only up 21-0 at halftime, and that somehow felt like a bad thing. The Crimson Tide covered the enormous 37-point...

That streak was finally broken at 10,363 snaps, which is believed to be an NFL record. NFL records don’t have anyone getting to 10,000 snaps, though the league has not always kept record of player snaps as a statistic. Thomas left the Browns&rsquo...
