  2. The SEC Media has spoken July 19, 2019 South Carolina’s football team will open 2019 with expectations for a middle-of-the-pack finish in its division. The Gamecocks were picked to finish fourth in the SEC East by the conference’s media. The preseason media poll came out Friday as a cap to SEC Media Days. USC received one vote to be SEC champion. Will Muschamp’s team was picked to finish behind Georgia, Florida and Missouri. The Gamecocks are coming off a 7-6 season in 2018, one fraught with injuries and a schedule that proved harder than most predicted. USC had been picked to finish second in the East and even got eight first-place votes before finishing fourth. The Gamecocks again face a difficult schedule, with Alabama as a crossover opponent and seven opponents that won nine or more games last season. Georgia and Alabama were picked to repeat as division champions. East 1 Georgia 2 Florida 3 Missouri 4 South Carolina 5 Tennessee 6 Kentucky 7 Vanderbilt West 1 Alabama 2 LSU 3 Texas A&M 4 Auburn 5 Miss State 6 Ole Miss 7 Arkansas SEC champ Alabama
  3. #SECMD19: Auburn coach Gus Malzahn (AUDIO) July 18, 2019 Auburn coach Gus Malzahn Gus Malzahn is entering his 7th season at Auburn, where enough never seems to be enough, especially in a state where Alabama is clearly king. Malzahn has averaged nine wins a season over the last three years, yet he’s on the “hotseat” once again because he’s not Nick Saban. And to his credit, Malzahn isn’t happy with eight and nine win seasons. He knows the expectations of his fanbase and agrees with them. And he knows 3-5 n the league isn’t going to cut it. Malzahn has to find a new quarterback this season, but he feels his defense will be the best of his tenure, so that could by him some time with the offense. The Tigers will open their season August 31st against Oregon in Dallas.

  4. #SECMD19: Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason (AUDIO) July 18, 2019 Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason These are exciting times at Vanderbilt. The baseball team finished off the 2018 athletic year winning the national championship and the football program plans to build on that momentum. Derek Mason believes he has his best team in Nashville and will be seeking a second straight bowl trip. The Commodores won their last two regular season games last season to qualify for a bowl, then lost to Baylor in the Texas Bowl. Mason has shown progress in building his program with two bowl trips in the last three seasons, and he’s looking for that breakthrough year. He thinks it might come this season though he has to face Georgia, Purdue and LSU in the first three games. Last season USC handled Vandy in Nashville 37-14. The Commodores visit Columbia November 2nd.

  5. #SECMD19: Kentucky coach Mark Stoops (AUDIO) July 18, 2019 Kentucky coach Mark Stoops Kentucky fans now have more to look forward to than just their annual run at a basketball championship. Their football program broke thru last season with its first ten win season in 40 years. And they won five SEC games, their most in the six years under Mark Stoops. They culminated the season with a win over Penn State in the Citrus Bowl. The Wildcats return quarterback Terry Wilson but must find a way to compensate for the loss of outstanding running back Benny Snell to remain competitive in the SEC East. Last season the Wildcats defeated USC for a fifth straight time 24-10. The teams will play in Columbia this season on September 28th.

  6. #SECMD19: Arkansas coach Chad Morris (AUDIO) July 17, 2019 Alabama coach Nick Saban Alabama’s Nick Saban held court Wednesday morning at SEC Media Days and shared his opinions on last year’s loss to Clemson in the national championship game, team building, the strive for perfection and the transfer portal, among other topics. Saban is expected to have another national championship contender this season with many pundits expecting a rematch with Clemson in the title game. Saban’s numbers at Alabama truly are staggering…in 12 seasons he’s lost a total of 21 games and only 13 in the SEC. And this season he will bring his team back to Columbia to face USC on September 14th. The Crimson Tide will open the season in Atlanta August 31st against Duke.

  7. #SECMD19: Arkansas coach Chad Morris (AUDIO) July 17, 2019 Arkansas coach Chad Morris Second year Arkansas head coach Chad Morris is widely regarded as an offensive genius, largely based off his Clemson years when he directed an offense led by Deshaun Watson. He parlayed that into a head coaching job at SMU where he went 14-22 in three seasons. But Arkansas was not distracted by those numbers. Rather, the administration there believed Morris could bring the same explosive offense to Fayetteville that he built at Clemson. It didn’t happen last season as the Razorbacks struggled to a 2-10 record, 0-8 in the SEC. In six of those losses, Morris saw his team score 17 points or less. But he feels he learned a lot from last season’s problems and he’s expecting a bounce back in 2019. By the way, Morris has a staff with a heavy Palmetto State influence. John Chavis of Dillon is the defensive coordinator/linebackers coach, Joe Craddock, who worked at Clemson, is the offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach, Ron Cooper, former USC defensive coordinator, is the secondary coach, Dustin Fry, a former Clemson offensive lineman, is the offensive line coach, and Justin Stepp, a former Furman receiver, coaches receivers. Arkansas will open the season at home August 31st against Portland State.

  8. #SECMD19: Mississippi State coach Joe Moorhead (AUDIO) July 17, 2019 Mississippi State coach Joe Moorhead Joe Moorhead had a successful debut as head coach at Mississippi State last season winning eight games, going 4-4 in the SEC including a win over arch-rival Ole Miss and playing in the Outback Bowl. His goal this season is continued improvement and upward movement in the SEC West. The Bulldogs open their season at Louisiana on August 31st.

  10. Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher Don’t look now but Jimbo Fisher has Texas A&M on the fasttrack to national prominence again. One year after his nasty departure from Florida State, Fisher flashed his coaching skills once again guiding the Aggies to a 9-4 record, 5-3 in the SEC, and a win over NC State in the Gator Bowl. The Aggies won their last four games and are being projected as a top 12 team for this coming season. Football fans in South Carolina will get a double-dose of the Aggies again this season. Last year they lost at home to Clemson 28-26 and won at USC 26-23. This season they will play at Clemson September 7th and will host the Gamecocks November 16th..

  11. Tennessee coach Jeremy Pruitt Jeremy Pruitt looks to continue the rebuild at Tennessee this season. In year one, Pruitt won five games, but only two in the SEC. However, that was two more than his predecessor, Butch Jones, won in 2017. Pruitt believes the people and the pieces are in place for the Vols to return to their once lofty status as an SEC and national power, from the new president to athletics director Phillip Fulmer, the longtime Vols’ coach who won a national championship in 1998. Pruitt also is high on his coaching staff which has new coordinators in Jim Chaney (offense) and Derrick Ansley (defense). The Vols lost at USC last season 27-24 and will host the Gamecocks October 26th. They will open their season at home August 31st against Georgia State.

  12. Ole Miss coach Matt Luke The two years of NCAA probation at Ole Miss are over and Matt Luke and the Rebels now have a chance to compete for bowl games and more. Luke, a former Ole Miss offensive lineman, kept the program from sinking during probation going 11-13 during those two seasons. Now armed with new coordinators, including former Clemson OC Rich Rodriguez, and a highly touted redshirt freshman quarterback in Matt Corral, Luke is excited about what his team might accomplish this season. The Rebels will be out to snap a five game losing streak when they open the season at Memphis August 31st. Matt Luke at SEC Media Days Ole Miss at a glance (compiled by Menachem Muller)
  13. Georgia coach Kirby Smart The Georgia Bulldogs in 2019 again will be considered as contenders for SEC and national honors. Kirby Smart led the Dogs to the national championship game in 2017 and just missed out on the playoffs last season after losing to Alabama 35-28 in the SEC title game. The Bulldogs were 11-3 last season and 7-1 in the SEC, that lone defeat a 20 point loss at LSU. The Dogs came to Columbia last season and spanked USC 41-17 and will host the Gamecocks October 12th. They open the season at Vanderbilt August 31st. Kirby Smart at SEC Media Days
  14. Florida coach Dan Mullen Florida returned to a level of national prominence last season with a 10-3 record and a win over Michigan in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl. The Gators went 5-3 in the SEC to finish tied for second in the East in Dan Mullen’s first season back in Gainesville as the head coach. He won 69 games in the previous nine seasons at Mississippi State. Last season the Gators defeated USC in Gainesville rallying in the 4th quarter to win 35-31. They will play at USC October 19th. The Gators open their season against Miami in Orlando August 24th in a game that will also recognize the 150th season of college football.

  16. LSU coach Ed Orgeron LSU was 10-3 in 2018 including 5-3 in the SEC. The Tigers played in one of the most bizarre games in college football history, a 74-72 loss to Texas A&M in seven overtime periods. The Tigers rebounded from that to defeat Central Florida in the Fiesta Bowl. Ed Orgeron is 25-9 in three seasons in Baton Rouge, 15-7 in SEC games.

  18. Where will SEC writers rank USC heading into 2019? Here’s our prediction for the East July 06, 2019 It may not feel like it, but football season is not far away. In fact, SEC Media Days, the unofficial start of the season for media members who cover the sport, starts July 15 in Hoover, Alabama. With that in mind, here’s a look at how the media might pick the SEC East finish. FIRST PLACE Writers’ Pick: Georgia. My Pick: Georgia This won’t be unanimous because some joker(s) will always want to be different, but the Bulldogs are the clear choice this season. Joe Cool quarterback Jake Fromm is back for his third season, the offensive line is probably the best in the country and there are still plenty of NFL-caliber running backs. The defense might actually create some quarterback pressure this year, too.(CLICK TO VIEW FULL ARTICLE) THE STATE

  21. JUNE 20, 2019 | by CHRIS | THESPURSUPSHOW 2019 Opponent Preview: Will Muschamp Looks To Stay Perfect Against The Vols OPPONENT: Tennessee Volunteers WHEN: Saturday, October 26th WHERE: Neyland Stadium (Knoxville, TN) ALL-TIME SERIES RECORD: Tennessee leads 25-10-2 LAST MEETING: South Carolina beat Tennessee 27-24 in Columbia 2018 RECORD: 5-7 (2-6) Head Coach… Jeremy Pruitt Out with the old, in with the new. That’s exactly what Tennessee did last off-season when it decided to fire Butch Jones and bring in highly successful defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt. Pruitt was solid in year one, picking up two wins over ranked opponents (Auburn and Kentucky) and helping bring stability back to Knoxville. Now, he looks to build on a top-15 recruiting class and embrace the high expectations of Volunteer fans as UT looks to get back to being a challenger in the SEC East. Returning Starters… OFFENSE (8) WR Marquez Callaway (Sr.) WR Josh Palmer (Jr.) WR Jauan Jennings (Sr.) LG Jahmir Johnson (Jr.) TE Dominick Wood-Anderson (Sr.) QB Jarrett Guarantano (Jr.) RB Ty Chandler (Jr.) DEFENSE (7) OLB Darrell Taylor (Sr.) ILB Daniel Bituli (Sr.) ILB Darrin Kirkland Jr. (Sr.) CB Bryce Thompson (So.) CB Baylen Buchanan (Sr.) CB Alontae Taylor (So.) S Nigel Warrior (Sr.) How did they fare in 2018? It was a rough start on Rocky Top a season ago, as the Vols were crushed by West Virginia 40-14 in Charlotte to open the season. Tennessee’s biggest win of the year came in an upset at Auburn, beating the Tigers 30-24. However, the Vols lost four of their last six games, finishing 5-7 and missing out on bowl eligibility in Pruitt’s first season. The game in Columbia, SC came down to the wire, as South Carolina stormed back to steal a win over UT by a final score of 27-24. Best Returning Player… Ty Chandler A true “do it all” type player for the Vols. Chandler led Tennessee in rushing touchdowns (4) and tied for the lead in receiving touchdowns (3) a season ago and will be the focal point of the UT offense yet again. Chandler has shown great explosiveness out of the backfield and “game breaking” ability in the biggest moments as well. While there are other playmakers on this Tennessee offense, none are quite as important to the Vols success in 2019 as #8. Overall Outlook… Is Tennessee primed for a surprise season in 2019? Many experts believe so, picking the Vols to win as many as 8+ games in 2019 and push the SEC East’s elite. Additions of new offensive coordinator Jim Chaney and wide receivers coach Tee Martin have Vols fans optimistic about the future of its offensive production. Defensively, UT will have to replace all of its production up front from a season ago, losing 150 tackles, nine sacks and 15.5 TFL from last years group. This fall will mark the 37th meeting between South Carolina and Tennessee, with the Gamecocks winning the last three in a row. The biggest question is this: can Rocky Top finally end its woes against USC head coach Will Muschamp? The Vols have never beaten Muschamp, going 0-7 during his stints at both Florida and now Carolina. While there’s no doubt the Vols will be improved in 2019, this won’t be the year UT fans get the answer they’re hoping for. 2019 SEASON PROJECTION: 7-5 (3-5)
  22. 2019 Opponent Preview: South Carolina Hosts Gators In “Measuring Stick” Game For Both Programs June 18, 2019, | by CHRIS, | THESPURSUPSHOW OPPONENT: Florida WHEN: Saturday, October 19th WHERE: Williams-Brice Stadium (Columbia, SC) ALL-TIME SERIES RECORD: Florida leads 27-9-3 LAST MEETING: Florida beat the Gamecocks 35-31 in Gainesville, FL 2018 RECORD: 10-3 (5-3) Head Coach… Dan Mullen The Gators football program got a boost of energy a year ago when former assistant Dan Mullen was named head coach. Year one was successful for Mullen and co., leading the Gators to a 10-3 (5-3) overall record, capped off by an impressive 41-15 win over Michigan in the Peach Bowl. Now, Mullen looks to make another big jump in year two and get the Gators closer to the promises he made upon his hiring. Returning Starters… OFFENSE (5) WR Van Jefferson (Sr.) WR Tyrie Cleveland (Sr.) WR Josh Hammond (Sr.) C Nick Buchanan (Sr.) QB Feleipe Franks (Jr.) DEFENSE (7) DE Jabari Zuniga (Sr.) NT Adam Shuler (Sr.) DT Kyree Campbell (Jr.) LB David Reese II (Sr.) CB CJ Henderson (Jr.) STAR Trey Dean III (So.) S Donovan Stonier (Jr.) How did they fare in 2018? The Gators surpassed expectations in Dan Mullen’s first season, winning 10 games capped off by a huge win over Michigan in the Peach Bowl. The year didn’t come without some bumps and bruises along the way, however. Florida lost to Kentucky for the first time in over two decades, sending fans in Gainesville into panic mode early on. UF rebounded nicely, winning five in a row before suffering back to back losses to Georgia and Missouri. Once again, Florida bounced back, winning four straight games, leading to an off-season full of optimism and hope heading into the 2019 season. Best Returning Player… Felipe Franks While highly criticized at times, Franks truly is the engine that makes Florida go. Franks quietly had a nice year for the Gators, throwing for just under 2,500 yards, 24 TD and just 6 INT. Now, heading into his junior season, he will look to take another major step and establish himself as one of the best signal callers in the SEC. Overall Outlook… To nobodies surprise, the Gators enter this season with sky high expectations in Dan Mullen’s second season. It’s been an interesting off-season for Florida to say the least, led off by Chris Steele’s decision to transfer which spurned a lot of moving around in Gainesville. Mullen has been very outspoken this off-season as well, getting in daily jabs at his archival UGA, Tennessee and others. Now, for the Gators trip to Columbia. First of all, don’t even get me started on last years game… South Carolina had Florida dead, leading by 17 with just under five minutes to play in the 3Q before the Gators stormed back for a 35-31 win. Now, the Gamecocks will look for revenge in what should prove to be a “measuring stick” type game for both programs this October. Still the question remains: what can we expect from this Gators team? Some have them listed as high as a Top 10 team in the pre-season, while some have UF taking a step back. Count me amongst those who are skeptical of the Gators in year two of the Dan Mullen era. UF comes back down to Earth a bit in 2019, including in their week eight match-up in Columbia. 2019 SEASON PROJECTION: 8-4 (4-4)
  23. Independence Bowl SEC cutting after this season SEC cutting after this season. Picking up Gasparilla Bowl in Tampa and Las Vegas Bowl. That would make the 7-5 season seem a bit better you think?
  24. Statement after SEC Meetings from Ray Tanner:"The public sale of alcohol in SEC venues has been a discussion item for several years and there had never been enough momentum to change the policy until this year. While we have discussed this inside the athletics department, now that the ban has been rescinded, we need fully to vet the impact for us with our campus leadership, including the President and the Board of Trustees, as well as campus, local and state agencies. We value the customer experience in all of athletic venues and will not do anything to negatively impact that."
