The Sunday: Southern Promises

By Brad Hubbard | @bradhubbard

The SEC was on the defensive on Saturday. Actually it was ESPN defending the conference to be more exact. And as for Lane Kiffin’s return to Knoxville, well he got out alive.

ESPN College Gameday anchor Chris Fowler made a comment defending the SEC while on location in Baton Rouge. He said in part:

“I’m a little defensive, but I get defensive when stupid, uninformed stuff gets repeated again and again, and somehow people all over the world think we have a stake in having three teams from this league [the SEC] get in.”

Later that night during the South Carolina at Auburn game Brent Musburger said the following:

“Somebody said we have SEC bias. Deal with it their the best.”

Defense was also on the mind of the Knoxville, Tennessee area law enforcement as former Tennessee Head Coach returned to Knoxville for the first time since his quick departure for USC. There was no incident to speak of but there was plenty of security for the most hated man in Tennessee history.

Kiffin

Alabama got out to an early lead and never looked back. Kiffin may have know that before the game when we walked out and gave a little ‘bang’ to Neyland Stadium.

It’s all about defense in the SEC and in more ways than one.
