Presenting the 12th annual musical tribute to SEC football with rapper, record-producer and entrepreneur Jay-Z leading the tunes.
Alabama: “This Life Forever”
This will make seven consecutive 10-or-more win seasons under Nick Saban, and do not be surprised if the Crimson Tide is in its fourth national title game in six years. This life might be forever.
Arkansas: “What They Gonna Do”
A third consecutive losing season seems likely for the Razorbacks, all since Bobby Petrino's motorcycle accident. What are they gonna do?
Auburn: “Some How Some Way”
A season ago, it was improbable wins against Mississippi State, Texas A&M, Georgia and Alabama. This season, the Tigers some how, some way found ways to defeat Kansas State, USC and Mississippi.
Florida: “99 Problems”
The Gators do not have a quarterback. They might not have a coach after this season. They cannot throw the ball. Those are a few of the 99 problems facing the lowly Gators.
If it is not Heisman Trophy candidate Todd Gurley signing the wrong pieces of paper for pay, or the Bulldogs finding another way to lose to an inferior opponent, trouble seems to find Georgia.
Kentucky: “Coming of Age”
Do not look now, but Kentucky football is coming of age under second-year coach Mark Stoops. Consecutive outstanding recruiting classes and a youthful team makes for a bright future.
LSU: “Welcome to the Jungle”
Welcome to the jungle of the SEC West. The Tigers are in fifth place in the division with a 3-2 league mark (7-2 overall). They would easily be the best team in the SEC East.
Mississippi: “Real as it Gets”
Consecutive losses to LSU and Auburn does not hide the fact that this talented Mississippi club is as real as it gets.
Mississippi State: “Dirt Off Your Shoulder”
The Bulldogs have dusted the dirt off their shoulders to prove they are among the SEC's top teams and a challenger for the national championship.
Few believe the Tigers are very good, but at 4-1 in the league and 7-2 overall, they have positioned themselves for an encore performance after winning the SEC East a season ago.
South Carolina: “A Million and One Questions”
Just a few of the million and one questions about the Gamecocks: Is this the worst defense in program history? Will Steve Spurrier stick around if USC ends with a losing season? Who on the coaching staff goes? And what the heck happened to a team No. 9 in the preseason?
Tennessee: “Say Hello”
Say hello again to the Volunteers. Lane Kiffin could not do it, nor could Derek Dooley. But Butch Jones has Tennessee back on the track to prominence.
Texas A&M: “Dig A Hole”
At one point, Texas A&M was a national title contender and quarterback Kenny Hill was in the Heisman Trophy hunt. Then the Aggies learned to dig a hole they seem incapable of escaping.
Three consecutive bowl appearances and back-to-back top 25 rankings to end the season put Vanderbilt on the map. Now the Commodores are falling.
