Everyone has seen the story about Chad Kelly and his fight in Buffalo nightclub. Everyone has been quick to point to his colored past. It seems as is the majority of Ole Miss fans are ready to cut ties with Kelly and move on to the next one. I think Rebel fans should take a step back and look at this without emotion. This incident isn’t one that should lead to an immediate dismissal.
Former MSU DC Geoff Collins is on his way to Florida and the search is on for his replacement. One important piece of information is that Dan Mullen was just contacted about permission to speak to Collins yesterday. With Collins accepting the offer in less than 24 hours, it would be a safe assumption that MSU doesn’t have a list of candidates as much as they have a list of names that they want to get in touch with.
Here is my final bowl projections. This year’s new system for picking really makes them guesses more than projections but here they are. Enjoy bowl season madness.
Alabama Crimson Tide (12-1)- National Championship Playoff vs Ohio State Buckeyes
1. Mizzou leads the SEC in sacks with 38 and Blake Sims leads the SEC in passer rating? Does Mizzou’s pass rush drastically change Lane Kiffin’s game-plan and what will give?
This is perhaps the most important facet to this game. It’s a great match-up because it challenges the play design of Kiffin. Sims has had a great year but I still stand firm in that I think he’s first read QB. For that reason, I’m looking for quick passes that gets the ball out of his hands. One of the biggest strengths to Bama’s offense is the long-ball and the Mizzou pass rush has the talent to neutralize the play-action, 5-step drop opportunities. Will Kiffin go to the RB screen game? If the Mizzou pass rush can force Bama into a quick throw and run-heavy game-plan, they could keep this one a close game going into the 4th quarter.
The 2014 regular season has ended and the only thing between us (fans) and complete madness in the bowl selections is the SEC Championship Game and the Playoff Selection Committee picking their four. This is a new year with a new process. Throw everything you used to know out the window. Throw out the old order of which bowl were more prestigious. None of that matters anymore.
Let’s take a look at position group by position group and see who has the edge.
Dak Prescott- 189/308, 61.4 %, 2714 yards, 23 TDs, 10 INTs. 171 rushes, 891 yards, 5.21 ypc, 11 TDs.
Bo Wallace- 206/328, 62.8 %, 2789 yards, 22 TDs, 10 INTs. 103 rushes, 216 yards, 2.1 ypc, 2 TDs.
