Even without Tebow, Gators will win the SEC East again

 Spring practice is over. We’ve learned a lot in the past month but there is still a lot that we won’t know until the teams return in August to begin drills for the 2010 season. This week we are going to break down every team in the SEC and ACC. We’ll talk about what we learned and what we still don’t know. What we do know is that every team, even the defending national champion (Alabama), has issues. How they deal with those issues, and what kind of summer the team has in avoiding off the field problems, will determine what happens come September.

Here is the schedule for the week:

Today: SEC East

Tuesday: SEC West

Wednesday: ACC Atlantic

Thursday: ACC Coastal

Friday: Tony’s Spring Top 25

Feel free to add your own comments to what we learned and what we still don’t know about each team. This exercise is meant to be fun and to give you a football fix that will (hopefully) last until two-a-days.

Enjoy.

SEC EAST SPRING REVIEW

PROJECTED FINISH

1. FLORIDA

**–Last season: 13-1, 8-0 SEC; lost to Alabama 32-13 in SEC championship game; defeated Cincinnati 51-24 in Sugar Bowl.

**–Coach: Urban Meyer, 96-18 in nine years, 57-10 in five seasons at Florida.

**–Key losses: QB Tim Tebow, LB Brandon Spikes, DE Carlos Dunlap, C Maurkice Pouncey.

**–Returning starters: Offense 6, defense 5, specialist 2.

**–Players to watch: QB John Brantley, OL Mike Pouncey, S Ahmad Black, RB Jeff Demps.

**–What we learned:  Florida’s offense will be very good again. Yes Tim Tebow and four other starters are gone from a unit that was seventh nationally in total offense (457.86 ypg). But don’t expect a significant drop off from the 2010 Gators. New quarterback John Brantley has an NFL arm and four of five starters return from a very good offensive line. The Gators are loaded at receiver as Andre Debose and Carl Moore return from injuries. Chris Rainey, who played running back last season, moved to the hybrid “Percy Harvin” position and should have a big year. Florida has a couple of young players, Trey Burton and tight end Jordan Reed, who can run the ball from the quarterback position.

**–What we still don’t know:  Can the defense overcome the losses?  Five starters from the 2009 defense, which finished fourth nationally (252.57 ypg), were taken in the NFL draft. The other lost starter, linebacker Ryan Stamper, led the team in tackles last season with 78. Also gone is defensive coordinator Charlie Strong, now the head coach at Louisville. That’s a lot of talent to replace, but there is a lot of talent waiting in the wings. Look for safety Ahmad Black to have a huge season.

**–Opening game: Sept. 4 vs. Miami of Ohio.

 

2. GEORGIA

**–Last season:  8-5, 4-4 SEC; beat Texas A&M 44-20 in Independence Bowl.

**–Coach: Mark Richt, 90-27 in nine seasons at Georgia.

**–Key losses: LB Rennie Curran, DT Jeff Owens, S Reshad Jones, DT Geno Atkins.

**–Returning starters: Offense 10; defense 5; specialist 2.

**–Players to watch: WR A.J. Green, RB Caleb King, RB Washaun Ealey, OT Clint Boling, C Ben Jones.

**–What we learned:  The offensive line has to be good from day one. After OT Trinton Sturdivant was lost after the first game of 2009, a veteran Georgia offensive line struggled to find the right five guys who could work together.  With players like tackle Josh Davis (6-6, 305) back in the lineup,  the Bulldogs finally found that chemistry in the second half of the season and ran the ball significantly better. Georgia and O-line coach Stacy Searels do not have that luxury in 2010. Georgia has to be able to run the ball and take the pressure off Aaron Murray, the redshirt freshman quarterback. Sturdivant is back at 100 percent. If he can stay healthy, there are a couple of bell cows in this group (Clint Boling, Ben Jones) who give Georgia a chance to be good up front.

**–What we still don’t know: Is the new 3-4 defense going to create more turnovers? Last season Georgia played 13 football games and somehow recovered only two fumbles, which was 120th (dead last) nationally. The Bulldogs were 76th nationally with only 10 interceptions. Todd Grantham was hired as defensive coordinator to install the 3-4 and (hopefully) make Georgia a more opportunistic team. Georgia was 118th nationally in turnover margin (minus-16) last season.  By contrast, Alabama was plus-19 in turnovers (31 takeaways, 12 giveaways). That has to change if Georgia wants to compete again for the SEC East championship. We also don’t know, for all the work that was done in the spring, if Georgia can get a handle on its penalty problem. Georgia committed 105 penalties in 13 games. Only five teams in college football (Troy, Oklahoma, Colorado, Texas Tech, Arizona State) had more.

**–Opening game: Sept. 4 vs. Louisiana-Lafayette.

 

3. SOUTH CAROLINA

**–Last season: 7-6, 3-5 SEC; lost to Connecticut 20-7 in Papajohns.com Bowl.

**–Coach:  Steve Spurrier, 177-68-2 in 20 years; 35-28 in five seasons at South Carolina.

**–Key losses: LB Eric Norwood, DE Clifton Geathers, WR Moe Brown.

**–Returning starters: Offense 8, defense 7, specialist 2.

**–Players to watch: WR Alshon Jeffrey, QB Stephen Garcia, S Chris Culliver, DE Cliff Matthews.

**–What we learned:   Quarterback Stephen Garcia is going to be on a very short leash in 2010. Last season South Carolina “pretty much had to live with what Stephen gave us,” coach Steve Spurrier said. That will not be the case in 2010 as Spurrier spent the spring taking a hard look at early-enrollee Connor Shaw of Flowery Branch. Spurrier threw down the gauntlet to Garcia to work harder and spend more time in the film room this summer. “We’re going to have two quarterbacks ready to go this year,” said Spurrier. Understand that Garcia’s numbers (55.3 percent, 2,862 yards, 17 touchdowns) are not terrible. But there is a certain way that Spurrier wants the position played and Garcia needs to make the reads that Spurrier gives him. Under pressure (and he was under a lot of pressure as South Carolina allowed 37 sacks last season), Garcia starts to free-lance. The Head Ball Coach doesn’t like that.

**–What we still don’t know: What will be the impact of freshman Marcus Lattimore? The incoming freshman from Duncan, S.C., was rated the No. 1 running back in the nation by some recruiting services. Lattimore, 5-11, 215, is a special talent who will be thrown into a mix of running backs that includes sophomores Kenny Miles (626 yards) and Jarvis Giles (5.3 ypg). But Lattimore can’t make a significant contribution if the offensive line doesn’t get better. Spurrier hired his third offensive line coach (Shawn Elliott from Appalachian State) in three years.  South Carolina was dead last in the SEC in rushing (121.23 ypg.) That has to improve.

**–Opening game: Sept. 2 vs. Southern Miss.

 

4. TENNESSEE

**–Last season: 7-6, 4-4 SEC; lost to Virginia Tech 37-14 in Chick-fil-A Bowl.

**–Coach: Derek Dooley, 17-20 in three years, first season at Tennessee.

**–Key losses: S Eric Berry, RB Montario Hardesty, DT Dan Williams. .

**–Returning starters: Offense 4, defense 6, specialist 2.

**–Players to watch:  TE Luke Stocker, WR Gerald Jones, DE Chris Walker, LB Nick Reviez.

**–What we learned:  The offensive line is a mess. The Volunteers had only one starter coming back up front, sophomore tackle Aaron Douglas. But Douglas, a freshman All-America last season, suddenly left the program in March and now the Vols are confronted with starting as many as three freshmen on the offensive line. Not good.  Tackle Ju’Wuan James looks like he can play but there are still a lot of questions at the guard and center sports. Tennessee has to be able to run the ball and shorten the game to have any shot at a winning record. Tauren Poole is finally ready to step up as a running back but he has to have someplace to run.

**–What we still don’t know:  Who will be the starting quarterback? Nick Stephens, the only quarterback in camp who had taken a snap for Tennessee, decided to transfer to Tarleton State, a Division II school, in April. That leaves the Volunteers with Matt Simms, a junior college transfer who started his career at Louisville, and true freshman Tyler Bray, who enrolled in January. Bray performed  a little better in the spring game but Simms gained experience last season in junior college. We also don’t know how this group of players is going to respond when times get tough. And times are going to get tough. In a six-week period Tennessee will play Oregon, Florida, LSU, Georgia, and Alabama. Dooley is the third head coach at Tennessee in three years. The players, who are rightfully a little shell-shocked, have bought into Dooley’s way of doing things. What happens if the losses start to pile up?

**–Opening game: Sept. 4 vs. UT-Martin.

 

5. KENTUCKY

**–Last season: 7-6, 3-5 SEC; lost to Clemson 21-13 in Music City Bowl.                                 

**–Coach: Joker Phillips, first season at Kentucky.

**–Key losses:  CB Trevard Lindley, DT Corey Peters, LB Micah Johnson, PK Lones Seiber.

**–Returning starters: Offense 5, defense 7, specialist 1.

**–Players to watch: WR/QB Randall Cobb, TB/RS Derrick Locke, LB Danny Trevathan, QB Mike Hartline, QB Morgan Newton.

**–What we know:  Kentucky has some good options at quarterback. A year ago the Wildcats had to take the redshirt off of Morgan Newton, the 2008 Indiana high school player of the year, when starter Mike Hartline went down with an injury. Newton completed 55.6 percent of his passes in six games. Now Hartline has returned and joining the mix is Ryan Mossakowski, a strong-armed redshirt freshman. Hartline had an edge coming out of spring practice but expect two quarterbacks to play. Kentucky has two great offensive weapons in running back Derrick Locke (907 yards rushing) and wide receiver/quarterback Randall Cobb (447 receiving, 573 rushing). The quarterback has to get the ball to them.

**–What we still don’t know:  Can new coach Joker Phillips keep things rolling at UK? Rich Brooks decided to retire after taking Kentucky to a school-record fourth straight bowl game last season.  Phillips, a former Kentucky player under Jerry Claiborne, takes over. The former OC has to replace the entire offensive line and the defense is missing three big-time players in DT Corey Peters, LB Micah Johnson, and CB Trevard Lindley. Can Phillips rebuild this team and get Kentucky to a fifth straight bowl game?

**–Opening game: Sept. 4 at Louisville.

 

6. VANDERBILT

**–Last season: 2-10, 0-8 SEC.

**–Coach: Bobby Johnson, 89-102 in 16 years, 29-66 in eight years at Vanderbilt.

**–Key losses:  CB Myron Lewis, C Bradley Vierling,  LB Patrick Benoist.

**–Returning starters:  Offense 6, defense 4, specialist 1.

**–Players to watch:  LB Chris Marve, TB Warren Norman, TB Zac Stacy, S Sean Richardson.

**–What we know: It was a costly spring for Vanderbilt. Starting DT Adam Smotherman suffered a torn ACL during a scrimmage and may miss the first half of the 2010 season.  OT Ryan Seymour dislocated a shoulder which required surgery. Seymour should make it back for the first game. A total of six players scheduled to be starters missed all or part of spring with injuries.

**–What we still don’t know: Can the Vanderbilt offense get better? The numbers in SEC play last season were just staggering. In eight conference game the Commodores scored only 71 points (8.875 ppg). In three games Vanderbilt scored in single digits and only once (a 31-16 loss to Tennessee) did Vanderbilt score more than 13 points in a game. Johnson shuffled his offensive staff, moving offensive coordinator Ted Cain to tight ends and replacing him with Jimmy Kiser. Quarterback Larry Smith, who completed only 46.7 percent of his passes last season, held off a challenge by Jared Funk and JUCO transfer Jordan Rogers. Vanderbilt has to get better on offense if it wants to improve on last season’s 2-10 record.

**–Opening game:  Sept. 4 vs. Northwestern.

Wow. Looking through these comments makes me feel like I just woke up on Planet Zindar, or maybe even Decatur. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain pulling all the levers, or to Pat Sulley. All (except natural-born Zindar citizens) would agree that when Earthlings think Gators or the Tide, they think power football and winning programs. They never (I mean, NE-VERR) think about win-loss stats spread over decades and what also ran team might statistically look better on paper through some pantywaist view of the world.. So, with that I’ll just say …… Beam me up, Scotty–I can’t handle this alone.

Gen Neyland–you need to prepare yourself. After eight games Tn will be 2-6. They will finish 5-7 unless Georgia or SC lays an egg which is entirely possible and maybe even expected these days. You have to be happy with 5-7 and look to the future. When these freshman receivers and QB fill out and grow up in two years, they’ll be tough.

Besides, Tn is a basketball school now. So we got that goin for us…which is nice.

They are law breakers once they walk across the border. Tea party people are pissed off that morons like you want to destroy America. You will see the destruction of your socialism at the polls in 5 months. Poor pathetic losers you are.

Looks like Parade Magazine had two token QBs on their team this year for some reason…Mason included. Dylan Favre was the other.

Hutson Mason “All American”…. where was he on the other recruiting services?

Fla and Lsu will be in the sec champ game imo
Ga with a starting fresh will likely lose 3-4 conf games. Maybe 1 more
SC will finish second. Tenn and uga will be close 3rd.
Lsu beats bama this year and finishes 7-1 in conf. The nat champ will be Ohio St vs Fla St. Ponder will do well this year and is a top 10 nfl draft qb.

Also, speaking of killing, do you realize that more people have been killed in religious wars or under the guise of religion than all other wars combined?? It’s going on right now, my friend. And believe me, I have nothing against religion as I think it makes alot of people who really understand and embrace it’s true principles a better people. And by the way, don’t know if you’re a native american or not…but if you’re not a native american…guess what you really are? At the core, you are an immigrant wehter you were born here or not , just like almost everybody else in this country. And by the way, because I have a pretty good idea of what you may be thinking, I have blond hair and blue eyes…… Also my apologies to everyone else out there because i know how I feel when someone starts spouting politics on these blogs…but I felt the need to respond under the circumstances.

I’m thinking LSU from the West with AUB as a darkhorse.UGA from the East with SC as a surprise contender.I dont know right now who will win the League but they will go on to win the NC.I say that because while some of you have no problem dismissing Bama and FLA talent losses you seem to forget that LSU and UGA along with others in the SEC have been reeling in top rated recruiting classes too.The league is going to dominate the NC race for some time to come.Follow the recruits….the teams with the best recruiting classes are the ones winning the NC’s.It’s not like we are a two deep league we have 4-5 teams in the top 10 every year in recruiting the only reason we don’t have 4-5 teams ranked in the final polls is they have to play each other.The SEC is becoming a semi-pro league most of the best players in the south are going to SEC schools and the south is producing some of the best talent in all of college football.Nobody is going to stay on top forever in this league..the coaching and talent level league wide is too good.Texas,USC,OSU and OU will get some great classes here and there but it’s getting to where the 3rd or 4th best SEC school is going to have talent on par with the champions of any other conference.The SEC is about to put a stranglehold on that crystal trophy.I’m predicting multiple championships from different schools from our league over the next 4-5 years.BAMA and FLA are not as far away from the pack as some folks think.They will be in the hunt but they won’t be shoo- ins.But our league champ will be battle tested like no other team in the country every year….that’s why they will win.

UF has a tougher schedule than UGA. They are playing AL and LSU on back to back weekends. I watched the Florida spring game. Their O looked good but their D was really bad.

WonderDawg and all of you Bobo haters. If our OC was so bad how did we average 29 points a game? One thing you learn as an OC is that you call plays based on your players you have and Cox really limited what Bobo could do. No matter what plays he calls they still play the game on the field. If they can’t execute the certain plays because of arm strength or decision making it limits what plays can be called.

Gator FAN

May 3rd, 2010

And what exactly have you witnessed from UGA over the last few years that makes you think UGA will win the EAST?

You have the SAME Head Coach that let the program run iteself the last few years while Florida and Alabama totally passed you by.

The blow out losses the last few years at the hands of Elite teams AND Mediocre TEAMS (Tennessee) really tells you where you stand.

Donnan (13-7) did a better job against the SEC EAST his last 4 years than RICHT (10-10) has done. Not only has Richt been totally domintated by Florida (1-3) – but by a mediocre Tennessee (1-3) as well. He is even with Kentucky (2-2).

In 2009 – UGA was 2-3 in the SEC EAST. Tennessee was 4-1!!!!

That loss against OK STATE (which got beat by HOUSTON the next week) was a REAL measuring stick to where UGA is as a program. ….. and barely beating AZ STATE – are you kidding me?

UGA will lose to South Carolina,Florida, Auburn and Georgia Tech this year – mark it down. Arkansas and Tennessee could both wind up losses. Mississippi STATE could surprise you as UGA struggles against the spread.

At best UGA is 8-4 – and will probably be 7-5 or 6-6 if they can not get the running game going early in the season. UGA could be 1-2 three games into the season.

Florida will win by a MINIMUM of 2 touchdowns – mark it downs! Look for Florida to go 5-0 against a weak SEC EAST division. Our hands will be full against LSU and Alabama. UGA = wait till next year…again!!!

He is 24-7 against the SEC West.

He is 28-16 against the SEC East.

He is 38-4 against nonconference opponents.

He is 8-1 against Georgia Tech.

He won four of his first five games against Tennessee, but has lost three of the last four against the Vols since then.

He was born the same year as Chuck D of Public Enemy.

Ranks third in winning percentage among active college coaches that have coached for at least five years, now that Pete Carroll left USC for the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks.

He is 90-27, trailing only Urban Meyer (96-18) and Bob Stoops (117-29).\\yeah he is pretty damn good

Mark Richt is one of only six coaches to win two SEC football championships in their first five years coaching. He is also one of only five head coaches in SEC history to record four straight 10-win seasons

Coach Richt’s Red and Black outfits have never posted a losing record in conference play and six of his last eight squads have finished 6-2 or better in regular-season SEC contests.

You pick and choose stats. Lets dont…ok

u r like Bear…he has one good year and is 1-3 against Richt but he is proud of his one in 10 years good team. LOL
