Ten Things - Week Four

Posted By:Wes Mewbourne - Birmingham, AL


Just like that, the first month of the season is just about in the books.  September has been far from a disappointment, though, as upsets and dramatic finishes were found in abundance.  We even got the coaching carousel started a bit early, which may have ripples that reach beyond bowl season.  As exciting as September was, it was merely an appetizer for the main course that October will provide.  But lest we get ahead of ourselves, Let’s take a look back at the week that was in this week’s Ten Things.

Ten Things - Week Two

Posted By:Wes Mewbourne - Birmingham, AL


It’s a fairly well-known saying that the biggest improvements come between weeks one and two.  You’ve had a chance to see your team play against guys in different colored jerseys and a full week to adjust and progress your game plan.  If this is true, then there’s cause for concern in some places (we’re looking at you, Clemson) and reason for hope in others (such as Tennessee).  And while the second week of the season has been a day of cupcakes (18 ranked  teams played teams outside the Power Five conferences), we were treated to a rare week two of drama (two of them lost in heartbreaking fashion).  Throw in the revival of an old rivalry and we might as well say that the best opening week of football was followed by the best second week in recent memory.

Ten Things: 2016 Season Preview

Posted By:Wes Mewbourne - Birmingham, AL


Congratulations.  Since last year, your favorite team is right where they want to be.  Their offseason program worked like a charm.  Their star player is a Heisman contender (or at least your darkhorse pick).  This is their year to crack the playoff and bring home the trophy, vindicating your patience and the hard work of the coaching staff.  After all, they have just as good a shot as anyone, right?  Well like you, I have a few questions coming into the season.  Here are the biggest questions I have, along with a few suggestions for Saturday viewing.
