    Texas A&M is a fraud, so which team will threaten Alabama en route to Atlanta?

    Texas A&M is a fraud, so which team will threaten Alabama en route to Atlanta?

    One of the biggest games of the college football season was supposed to occur this Saturday, when Alabama hosts Texas A&M.

    It is the day of reckoning after Nick Saban and Jimbo Fisher exchanged barbs in the offseason. When the season started, though, Fisher's peacocking faded, and A&M got unmasked as a fraud. This looks like a mismatch, despite Saban's "rat poison" warnings.

    So, if not A&M, which team can threaten the No. 1-ranked Tide en route to the SEC Championship in Atlanta?

    On this episode, hosts Blake Toppmeyer and John Adams evaluate three teams, in particular, that could challenge the Tide: Tennessee, Ole Miss and Mississippi State.

    One stands above the rest.

    Also, what's wrong with Georgia? And, some Week 6 picks against the spread.

    Why the SEC could supply a surprise playoff team not named Georgia or Alabama

    Why the SEC could supply a surprise playoff team not named Georgia or Alabama

    Logic says Georgia, Alabama and Ohio State are playoff frontrunners, while the competition for the final bid could get wonky.

    But how’s this for a wild card? The winner of this week’s clash of No. 8 Kentucky at No. 11 Ole Miss should be viewed as a longshot playoff contender. Each team has a relatively manageable schedule, and the victor of this game may find a path to a backdoor playoff bid.

    On this episode, hosts Blake Toppmeyer and John Adams consider the prospects of a surprise playoff qualifier from the SEC, and they debate whether Ole Miss’ Lane Kiffin or Kentucky’s Mark Stoops should parlay their success into a bigger-name job.

    Toppmeyer contends that Kiffin and Stoops can make the playoff without changing jobs. That will be more evident after the playoff expands to 12 teams.

    Later, they offer the latest case of SEC coaching malpractice, and they supply their Week 5 picks.

    Ole Miss, Arkansas, Tennessee or Kentucky? Which is SEC's No. 3 team?

    Ole Miss, Arkansas, Tennessee or Kentucky? Which is SEC's No. 3 team?

     It's Georgia's world, and everyone else is simply trying (and failing) to avoid getting crushed. Sound familiar?

    The defending champion Bulldogs remain the team to beat. And within the SEC, the best challenger for the throne continues to be Alabama, despite its Week 2 scare at Texas.

    After that, the conversation the conversation gets interesting. Which team deserves the No. 3 spot in SEC power rankings?

    Hosts Blake Toppmeyer and John Adams debate that topic on this episode, weighing two teams from the SEC West and two from the East.

    Plus, is this Bryan Harsin's final stand at Auburn? And, Week 4 picks!

    Jimbo Fisher looks like a bozo after another Texas A&M flop

    Jimbo Fisher looks like a bozo after another Texas A&M flop

    Jimbo Fisher talked tough throughout the offseason after Texas A&M signed the nation's No. 1 recruiting class. When other SEC coaches raised an eyebrow at the Aggies' recruiting haul in the first year of NIL, Fisher fired back, calling them "clown acts." He described Nick Saban a false god.

    Now, Fisher wears the clown nose as the SEC's chief bozo after his Aggies lost 17-14 at home to Appalachian State. Through 50 games, Fisher's record at A&M is worse than Kevin Sumlin's was at the same juncture.

    On this episode, hosts Blake Toppmeyer and John Adams discuss the bloom falling off Fisher's rose.

    They also debate whether Mark Stoops should consider the Nebraska job and point to a lingering concern for Alabama. Plus, they offer their Week 3 picks.

    Hot take or smart take? We evaluate SEC narratives after one game; Plus, Week 2 picks

    Hot take or smart take? We evaluate SEC narratives after one game; Plus, Week 2 picks

    Anthony Richardson for Heisman? Georgia football is better than last year? LSU won't make a bowl?

    Knee-jerk reactions are en vogue after Week 1, but that doesn't mean those takes will prove off the mark.

    Georgia, for example, really might be better than last season, as Oregon can attest.

    On this episode, hosts Blake Toppmeyer and John Adams react to the early SEC narratives and evaluate whether they're smart takes or hasty takes.

    Also, they make Week 2 picks, including Kentucky-Florida and Tennessee-Pittsburgh.

    Why a few SEC teams are ripe for quarterback controversies

    Why a few SEC teams are ripe for quarterback controversies

    The SEC is not overwhelmed by quarterback controversies at the moment, but just wait. These things have a way of bubbling up.

    The SEC West, in particular, has multiple quarterback situations that likely will remain up for debate throughout the season's first month, especially if the starter falters.

    The starters at Texas A&M (Haynes King) and Auburn (T.J. Finley) are familiar faces, but each team has an experienced backup, setting the stage for drama. Plus, starting quarterbacks have not been announced at LSU and Ole Miss.

    On this episode, hosts Blake Toppmeyer and John Adams examine these quarterback competitions and consider how solid the starter's footing is at each. Plus, they offer Week 1 picks.
