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.

When Ga. had Van Gorder, nobody liked to play us….Not him per say, but a good defense. If Grantham can turn the ship in the next year or two, UGA will be back to playing good ball. The offense has always been good enough to win, but the Defense has really but Georgia in the hole, even against less talented teams. As a Dawg fan , i’m excited, and the haters can keep on talking and HOPE that Grantham & Co. will not be successful. Their outlook will go from we’ll beat Georgia back to I hope we beat Georgia.

Nick Saban went 6-5, 6-6, 6-6, 7-5 at Mich St.

He went 8-5 at LSU 2x

He went 7-6 at Alabama.

Saban has gone 5-3 or worse in conference 8 times.

Richt has only gone 5-3 or worse in conference 3 times in his first 9 years.

Compare that to Saban’s record and consistency in his 1st 9 years.

Richt has NEVER had a 7-6 or 6-6 season, Saban’s done it 5 times, including once at Alabama

First, a couple of posters have referred to Garcia as a senior. That is incorrect – he’s a redshirt junior.

Second, to those who say he is dumb, has underachieved, whatever, I offer this. He threw for almost 3,000 yards last season with an awful running game (last in the SEC) and a weak O line. We have only had about 3 Qbs in our history who have thrown for 3,000 yards in a season – and he has two more seasons to hit that mark. Spurrier is on him because he sees his potential, but he also sees some immaturity. He is far from dumb.

He got in some off the field trouble his first two years that caused him to miss practice time. He has been trouble free his last two years and I expect that to continue. His off the field troubles weren’t anything like the seriousness that we have seen from some other SEC football players this year BTW.

I am confident that with a better O line, some excellent young RBs (including the aforementioned Marcus Lattimore), greater maturity and a full year + under the tutelage of QB coach G. A. Mangus, Garcia will have a fine junior year. Other than Mallett, there isn’t another QB in the conference that will be in his league this season.

Patrick,

If you’re happy with Richt then that’s awesome. Seriously. I’m happy that you’re happy with Richt. I think he is a fine coach and honorable man. Shouldn’t be any problem since we both agree Richt is a fine coach and we both hope he stays at Georgia.

And I don’t understand why you jump on the gators fans about Richt. I guarantee they’re happy that Georgia fans are happy with Richt. I know for certain that Urban Meyer is happy that you’re happy with Richt. Considering that Urban is 4-1 against Richt including the last 2 by blowout margins then
rest assured the gator fans probably have no problem with Richt being Georgia’s head coach. Jest sayin…..

Flori-duh! No kidding. Tennesse will be light on experience and depth but not talent so they will beat Georgia (again) because Richt is predictable and Dooley has the scouting report and scheme left behind by David Cutcliffe (8-0 vs. the mutts).

I know OSU didnt lose in ‘02, neither did Miami. But GA did. I can’t remember who beat them, can you help me out?

I dont recall anyone losing in 2008 for us to play Oklahoma, but you selectively left that out of your post. On the other hand I do recall us beating the then undefeated and number one ranked team in the country to make the title game. If that’s backing in, I’ll take it, and CMR certainly hasnt done it. So if that makes me a moron, I can’t fathom what that makes you, other then another dawg fan who has to resort to personal attacks when the facts don’t fit.

I have not “jumped” on Gaytor fans. I have merely corrected their skewed views with a little fact.

I merely launch torpedoes of truth at their wall of lies.

Fla has been his Achilles heel for sure…but to say he is not as good as Meyers based merely and solely on USC losing to UCLA allowing Fla to back into a NC is preposterous.

Had USC won that game against an inferior UCLA than they, not Fla, would have advanced. Had OSU lost a single game in 2002 UGA would have advanced. Both Meyers and Richt had identical records and both NEEDED a team to lose. THATS the only difference

Dawg’s win the east because of the OL and the running backs. When you control the ball, you win championships. There is no way the defense can be worse than the last two years. Dawg’s win because:

Easier Schedule
Better Discipline
Offensive Line Play
Running Backs

all you ones who are saying Garcia cant be any better and so on…1st, he was 2nd in the SEC last year only behind Mallet at Arkansas. 2nd, ive lost all respect for your opinion when yall keep calling him a Senior. He is a Junior. These UGA fans calling Aaron Murray god are delusional. I wish he was, but we have yet to see him play in a real game. Georgias QB situation is in horrible shape. If it came down to QB play next year, I would put Carolina ahead of Georgia and Florida. We havent see Brantley play when a game is on the line. He is unproven just like Logan Grey and Aaron Murray. South Carolina has a QB who is proven, and won big games, like Clemson and Ole Miss and performed very well in others such as Alabama and Florida. He has much improved since he first got to Carolina. If things dont work out for Garcia, like some of you think, then all that does is put them in the same situation as Georgia and Florida. On offense overall, I would say Carolina is in a better situation than Georgia or Florida. They are stacked at reciever and running back. There Oline knocks them down a little and is a big question mark, but i just dont see as much talent at neither Georgia or Florida on offense. Defense, we all know South Carolina always has a spectacular defense every year. I just think talent wise, South Carolina has a better team than the rest of the east. I agree with the guy who put Carolina 1st on his list. I would disagree with 2nd and stick Florida there followed by Georgia then Tennessee. Kentucky should be a fifth place team then Vandy.

in 2008 Meyers lost a game….there was only one undefeated teams…his record was again 12-1.

I believe it was AGAIN USC that lost allowing Fla to back into the game. I didnt mention it it because its redundant. Same ole same ole.

and Who UGA lost to makes no difference when comparing a 12-1 record to another 12-1 record…in fact even had UGA won all of their games OSU would still need to lose as OSU was ahead of UGA in the rankings with 2 top 25 teams left on their schedule AFTER the Fla game.

G8R GRAD,

Our defensive secondary is gonna be fine. Our safety former 5 star recruit Mark Barron led the SEC in ints last year, was our 2nd leading tackler, and made 3rd team all american as a sophomore.

Every recruiting service’s #1 rated corner recruit in 2008 was Dre Kirkpatrick. He is the Joe Haden style lockdown corner and has locked down one corner spot. The other corner is BJ Scott a former 5 star recruit and so we are now set at the corners. On top of that we landed for the 2nd year in a row the nation’s top corner recruit in 5 star Demarcus Milliner. He and John Fulton another highly rated corner coming out of high school will compete with Phelon Jones who started as a corner at LSU before transferring to give us more depth at the corner spot. Both enrolled in January and went through spring practice.

We’re locked and loaded at corner and at one safety spot so that leaves the other safety spot. Former 4 star junior Robert Lester earned that job but will still have to hold off 4 star Rod Woodson, and several other 4 and 5 star recruits.

Bottom line is that there is experience there as well as 5 star talent at 3 of our 4 db positions. If you think our secondary is going to be torched left and right you are sadly mistaken. Oh, I almost forgot. Nick Saban is the secondary coach. I think we’ll be okay.

We have the best rushing team in the SEC East.

Definitely Florida at #1, but South Carolina should beat UGA in their early game with them. UGA is probably looking at #3 in the division.

To those dawg fans who are fantasizing about how bad Florida will be this year, and how this is UGA’s year for the SEC and a BCS bowl, just keep on fantasizing. While Richt is at UGA and Meyer is at Florida, UGA wins in Jacksonville will be very rare events. UGA can go 11-1 every year, but Florida will still be there as an impassable roadblock.

Anyway-the best message board ever keeps getting bettter.

UF has a whole lot of question marks. My guess is we will get spanked by BAMA, and if we don’t lose 1 other game we will lose in Tally to FSU. You can only keep a dog down so long and eventually they bite you. However you can keep some Dawg’s down a lot longerand I don’t see those beating us!!!

Hey Tony, how about doing a column comparing the SEC east with the ACC coastal. You’d generate a lot of “discussion” on the blogs.

One factor TB forgot to mention which may affect the standings and that is how often this year will the dawgs have a blackout/ redout/ silverout/ black helmets/ white helmets/ silver helmets or maybe they go with the old leather helmets.

NOW THATS FUNNY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Best post of the day

Screw that, Dawgs win the east.

What’s with all this “S. Carolina is going to beat Georgia” talk?

UGA fans who are soooo pumped up and already making plans fo be in Atlanta for the SEC championship game need to go a little easy with the kool aid and take a reality check. It ain’t going to happen while Mark Richt is in Athens. You keep forgetting some key words like Meyer, Miles, Saban, and Spurrier.

It also ain’t going to happen until the player arrest tate comes way down, or Richt won’t know who’s going to be playing each week. That’s a sad fact of life that’s going to continue to bite UGA in the butt (can you say “Mettenberger”?).
