Was Gene Chizik’s desire to play old-school SEC football his undoing at Auburn? Here’s an argument for the spread offense and dancing with the one that brung ya.


While they are waiting for Derek Dooley to officially be fired, Tennessee folks are beginning to talk about who might replace him.


Speaking of Dooley, Vanderbilt coach James Franklin has decided not to jump on Dooley when he’s down. He’s not talking about last year’s Volunteers celebration video.
