Ty and Dan walk back through a wild weekend of SEC upsets, Missouri’s sudden dominance, Florida State’s epic beatdown of Clemson, the pain of watching Andrew Hendrix, and the energy void that was Oklahoma-Kansas. Plus, a game of greater-than-less-than with Tennessee, and a brief discussion about the accounting firm of Davis Webb.
SEC Shake-up (10/20)
Week eight was a wild one, and with the anarchy in college football tons of Reverbs flooded the line. Because of the overwhelming volume, Ty will be posting them on Oct. 21.

Auburn at Texas A&M: Dan gladly self-congratulates after picking Auburn outright. He points to Nick Marshall’s excellent play, being able to move the ball at will and great coaching from Gus Malzahn. The Iron Bowl is quickly looking more interesting thanks to Auburn, even though Alabama is boring great.
LSU at Ole Miss: Ty is distraught the one weekend he isn’t on Ole Miss, it wins. Zach Mettenberger has a pump-the-breaks evening, throwing three picks, while Dr. Bo Wallace looked surgical. The guys step back and look at the SEC West.
South Carolina at Tennessee: South Carolina played like they were looking ahead to Missouri, with Mike Davis as its only source of offense. Dan says at this point in the season Tennessee is a moderately good team at home, now having knocked off Georgia and South Carolina. Ty asks Dan if Tennessee could upset Auburn at home a few weeks down the road.
Georgia at Vanderbilt: Aaron Murray and the scout team get upset by Vandy who needed its backup quarterback. The guys agree Georgia is probably toast mentally and physically.
Florida at Missouri: Both guys picked Florida to win on the road, skeptical of Missouri and how good it actually is. Turns out they’re really good and the Tigers are in the driver’s seat in the SEC East, holding a two game lead.
Florida State at Clemson: Florida State destroys Clemson and Jameis Winston casts aside any doubt of crumbling in a hostile environment. Dan says this Florida State team has everything you want in a national title contender and that Lamarcus Joyner was actually the player of the game. Ty also raves about the defense and says the game was essentially over after 12 minutes.
Miami at UNC: It wasn’t a particularly good game for a lot of Miami’s team, but Dallas Crawford had a strong game and was able to pull out the win. They’re now the No. 7 team in the country, which isn’t all that accurate of their actual standing on the national scene. Dan gushes about the Tar Heels’ Eric Ebron.
UCF at Louisville: Louisville was up 28-7 with eight minutes left in the third quarter and then gets scorched by the Knights to lose the game. Dan says its completely unacceptable that the Cardinals didn’t play four quarters of football, especially at home.
UCLA at Stanford: This game was typical, conservative Stanford. There were more takeaways from UCLA who can’t win in multiple ways and got off to another slow start. Dan thinks this year for Stanford has been a step down from where they’ve been in years past.
Washington at Arizona State: Washington gets boat raced by Arizona State as the Sun Devils ripped off 29 straight points against the Huskies to open the game.
Oregon at Washington State: Washington State’s Connor Halliday throws 89 times and is intercepted four times, while Marcus Mariota continues his streak of games without an interception. Dan warns against Oregon straying from the run and throwing the ball unnecessarily.
USC at Notre Dame: This was an ugly game with no one scoring in the second half. Ty says the biggest story line was Tommy Rees’ injury and Irish fans wishing he wasn’t because Andrew Hendrix was terrible.
Ohio State at Iowa: Carlos Hyde has been fantastic all year. Dan complains about Ohio State’s inability to pull away from a decent team, which is what they need to do to be considered a contender.
Indiana at Michigan: Ty says this game is dumb because of the lack of defense in this game.
Wisconsin at Illinois
Minnesota at Northwestern
Purdue at Michigan State
Texas Tech at West Virginia
TCU at Oklahoma State
Oklahoma at Kansas
Iowa State at Baylor
Dan winds down the game recaps with various notes from across the country.
