Humdrum Season Paves the Way

 

sec_logoThe 2009 SEC season is a script that has been played out before. Perhaps the coaches’ off field battles and minor controversies are compensating for a lack of on field action. After all, Florida has remained #1 the entire season, just as the prognosticators predicted. Their rematch against Alabama in the SEC championship game has been a sure thing since September. The rebuilding teams are showing the inconsistent improvement fans expected, the overhyped media darling (this year played by Ole Miss) crumbled under expectations, and South Carolina jumped to a promising start only to suffer a string of late season defeats. One might question why they bothered watching this season.

Any fan who chose to sit this one out will surely regret it. They would have missed the season in which Alabama’s field goal kicker broke school records for all-time scoring. They would have missed some of the wackiest fumble recoveries in recent memory. And they would have missed the unimaginable decline of Florida’s super-quarterback Tim Tebow.

This has worked especially well for Alabama but has given South Carolina and Ole Miss mixed results. This year, three schools have chosen to reach outside the conference, or even to candidates with no head coaching experience. Going in to the final stretch of the season, how are these non-traditional hires working out? «Read the rest of this article»
