    Hear Ye! Hear Ye!!! Cream Talk by Stallion - Week 6

    Good Sunday Stallion Lovers!

    Did the sunrise this morning have a purple and gold tint to it? It’s starting to feel that way for the Stallion. Only Les Miles can steal the spotlight from a team that just defeated the nation’s No. 1 team and longest winning streak. The Mad Hatter is no longer appropriate. It is now Les Midas. Everything that man touches is gold. Forget that he managed the clock horribly again by wasting 30 some-odd seconds before calling a timeout to only decide he was going to call one of the most poorly executed fake FG ever seen. (And how did Florida not know that this was a possibility from that far out?) Forget that he doesn’t realize that even if LSU gets the first down, it may be total chaos to get the FG unit back on the field unless you hit a big play, like you did on the ensuing play after the fake FG. Forget that Miles has no clue that Jarrett Lee runs the offense more efficiently and yet you decide to keep going back to Jordan “Where am I now” Jefferson. Forget that the man is a total imbecile. He wins. He is Midas!

    And isn’t the SEC a better place when Steve Spurrier is winning big games. Is he as arrogant as the 90s Ole Ball Coach? Probably not. He’s a little older, a little wiser, maybe even a little more humble because of his failed days with the Redskins, but Spurrier is as quotable as Les Midas is lucky. But you gotta love the way he complements his players, especially the Spaniard. He might as well have just said that the Spaniard was lucky as crap for having the game of his life. It had that undertone to it. When Spurrier is winning, the casual SEC fan is winning. Oh and Alshon Jeffery is ridiculously good.

    So much attention has been given to Les Miles and the Stallion’s beloved Tiiigaaahs, but how about the other Tigers in the conference? Can they pull out any more thrillers on their schedule? Talk about living on the edge. Squeak by Miss. State. Pull out a rabbit against South Carolina. Miracle win against Clemson. Now a last second FG to beat The Joker’s ballclub. The Stallion is starting to think Cheezestick is drinking from the same fountain that Les Midas is. Personally, the Stallion feels that a less than impressive Arkansas team will end this string of good fortune for the War Eagles.

    And now for this week 6’s rankings:

    1)
    Alabama – Although they lose, they are still the team to beat in the conference. However, the Stallion questions Alabama’s defensive prowess on the road. That makes two teams now that they have faced and looked poorly against on the road. Let’s see if this is a trend.

    2) LSU – It’s hard to believe that this team is 6-0, but if you turn away from the circus known as LSU’s coaching staff and you see how well the offense is with Jarrett Lee in the game, could this be a serious run developing for the Bayou Bengals? The Stallion hopes so. As mentioned every week, when you have a defense like LSU, you’ve got a chance to win all of your games.

    3) South Carolina – Looked as impressive as Erin Andrews in a hotel room in front of a mirror.

    4) Arkansas – Have this feeling that Arkansas hasn’t hit their stride just yet. Very un-stellar-like performance by Mallett and Co. against a below average Texas A&M team.

    5) Auburn – That light that opened up on the Plains was South Carolina giving Auburn fans an early Christmas present.

    6
    ) Florida – Complete disarray in the Swamp and now injuries are mounting up. If not careful, a downward spiral could be happening in Gainesville. It may get a push from Mullen next weekend.

    7)
    Mississippi State – Starting to resemble a legitimate football team. Too bad the western division is loaded. Taking care of business when you are supposed to.

    Georgia – Without AJ Green you are No. 10 at best. With AJ Green you are scary!

    9) Ole Miss – Unfortunately for you, Alabama will be mad and hungry next weekend.

    10) Kentucky – Valiant effort but your defense is as porous as Heydog’s underwear after his 10-mile walk from Tiger Stadium with his entourage earlier in the year.

    11)
    Tennessee – When it rains, it pours orange. The Stallion believes the Volunteers season will now begin in December when recruiting season starts.

    1
    2)
    Vanderbilt – Get that directional Michigan school out of our heeeeouuuse.

    Hot Boudin – South Carolina – You win the biggest game in school history. Why does the Stallion feel an upset coming on next weekend at the hands of Kentucky? Does anyone else feel it?

    Cold Couscous – Tennessee – A team like Georgia was just what the doctor ordered and you go out and don’t even show up. That’s a sign of a deflated football team. The Stallion can’t blame you!

    Love,
    Stallion

    an LSU/USC flip flop seems logical, but USC got beat by Auburn. I see your logic and agree w/leaving Louisiana State where you did. If USC continues to play like that, they'll have to be the #2 team. Interesting is gonna be Auburn/LSU.

    so far for SEC football. Every team is competitive right now in the league. The next 2 weeks are going to be very interesting for the Cream rankings

    which usually translates into no undefeated SEC teams and no BCS appearance.

    the way the SEC beats itself up each year, but BCS bowl is guaranteed regardless... Looks as if Mike Slive has said 17 protecting any specific team up to this point. He might start working his magic for the winner of LSU and Auburn if both are undefeated going into that game..

    I can't see LSU or Auburn surviving undefeated this year. Their recent stint of football games have been nail biters. For Auburn to finish undefeated they will have to find a defense and LSU has the tools to make the run but someone is going to derail the mad hatter the way they have won the last two games.

    At the beginning of the year I just knew that Les's luck was going to run out this year, and your quarterback issue was going to be too much to overcome. So much for that, when your offense has struggled, your defense has kept you in the games. As the old saying goes, NC are won with defense, and LSU certainly has a good defense. The only problem is right now the press, and all of college footballers outside of the SEC believe that no one in the SEC is worthy of being in the NC. This is why we desperatly need some type of playoff in college football. If nothing else than just between all of the Conference champions. I gurantee the SEC would dominate even more than what we do right now.

    was when he was asked why he went for the fake and he said "I thought it was a play we could score on".....in other words, he though Josh Jasper could run 40 yards past the Florida defense. Fantastic.

    I don't know what its going to take to get Auburn some love, but they are pretty damn good.

    They are the anti-LSU. All offense and no defense. I would much rather havea stout defense than a stout offense.

    because they are not convincingly beating the average teams on their schedule. Beat us by 3 and it was as much because we blew our shots in the 2nd half as it was anything that they did. They needed a game winning drive against an average Clemson team as well as an average (at best) UK team. They are ranked in the top ten with only one impressive win over South Carolina. I would say they are getting as much love as they have earned.

    Remember when we started out 8-0 and were still ranked only 8th? This AU team isn't much different in terms of results on the field so far.

    I like to think your Midas guy fake FG was orignal, but word is..a ten year old paper boy sent the play to 'ol Les from the sandlot, no? But who cares, movies are made from ridiculous plunders of mortal man...but Lady Luck is bad to the fickle bone, Stallion!

    who is no. 3 in these rankings and only has one impressive win also.

    So I'd give the nod to Auburn. They are tough to stop.

    We're only 6 games into the season....there are not many teams with multiple impressive victories.

    He makes no sense in his decisions yet it works out. I don't get it. He wastes possessions. He calls boneheaded untimely fakes. He can't manage game time clocks. He speaks eerily like George W Bush. Yet the dude wins.

    Just like LSU if they can't score, you can definitely outscore South Carolina. There are a lot of beatable teams in the conference.
