Last Saturday night as I watched LSU dismantle the Kentucky Wildcats 41-3 in Death Valley I couldn’t help but think that the voodoo in Baton Rouge sure looked to be heating to a simmer. The next two games will give the opportunity for that simmer to boil. With two-straight top 5 opponents, the potential for that voodoo pot to boil is inevitable but the real question is if that pot could boil over and burn down the whole house? To put that in context, Death Valley has the chance to burn down the SEC West as we know it right now.
The Ole Miss opponent for week 9 is the LSU Tigers. Besides a 5-2 record with the weird ups and downs, what do you know about Les Miles’ squad? All you need to know is right here so you know the opponent before kickoff.
The Mississippi State opponent for week 9 is the Kentucky Wildcats. Besides a 5-2 record for the first time since 2007, what do you know about Mark Stoops and his bunch from Lexington? All you need to know is right here so you know the opponent before kickoff.
After the huge upset victory over Baylor, West Virginia students celebrated the only way they know how: rioting in Morgantown. The police responded in full riot gear after many fires were started and shot tear gas and rubber bullets at the rioters. Remember when WVU was discussed as a SEC expansion possibility? The reason that will never happen is because of their fans.

We’re at the halfway point of the season and we are starting to see what everyone is and what they aren’t. One thing I like to do is look back at what I projected pre-season and see what that looks like now. I also like to hold myself accountable for my picks and put that on display for everyone (I know most bloggers/writers don’t do that). Let’s take a look at what I got right and what I got wrong to this point.
