From the Weekend That Was

Ole Miss 31, Florida 30

Auburn 14, Tennessee 12
Yes, it was as glamorous as that score indicates. Watching this game gave me a slight sense of what it must feel like to slowly slip into a diabetic coma. The starting quarterbacks for the game:
Chris Todd: 14/23, 93 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT
Jonathan Crompton: 8/23, 67 yards, 0 TD, 0 INT

Luckily for sports fans, this game was virtually repeated 24 hours later when the Bengals and Browns locked horns. Final score there: Browns 20, Bengals 12.
Derek Anderson: 15/24, 138 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT
Ryan Fitzpatrick: 21/35, 156 yards, 1 TD, 3 INTs

Texas 52, Arkansas 10
This game was pretty much a flashback to the year the Razorbacks went to Los Angeles to play USC. The clock started and then it was 31-3. Only this time, Arkansas managed to hold the Longhorns to 52 instead of 70.

The good news for Arkansas is Casey Dick threw no interceptions. Although from the looks of things, he didn't do anything positive either. The bad news: a most irritated Florida team comes to Fayetteville next.

Kentucky 41, Directional School 3
I'm sure Kentucky fans got their share of Back in Black. If you've been to Commonwealth Stadium, you know what I'm talking about.

South Carolina 26, UAB 13
Let's take time out to pour one out for the end of the Chris Smelley and Tommy Beecher eras. It remains to be seen if Stephen Garcia can go more than four days without doing something to embarrass himself, his parents, and his school. Something inside me says that Garcia will eventually be arrested for mayhem.

LSU 34, Mississippi State 24
And now let's take another moment to pour one out for the end of the Wesley Carroll era. In related story, stocks in interceptions and incompletions hit record lows.

Alabama 41, Georgia 30
Not much to say here other than this was one of the more dominating wins I've ever seen between two alleged good teams in the SEC. As long as Alabama can effectively run the ball and keep John Parker Wilson from having to win the game, they'll keep on trucking. I think there will come a time later in the season when he'll have to make plays to win a game, but right now he's doing a great job of not screwing up the limited responsibility he's been given (Note: That's not a knock on him. He's doing exactly what he should be doing. Smart decisions and no killer mistakes.).

Also, no word if Georgia's next home game will involve a "Pink Out."
