I really was pulling for Tennessee last week. When I heard the score was 6 to 6 at halftime, I became the biggest Big Orange fan of all-time.  I know that Alabama needs to lose for Arkansas to get back in the SEC West title race. Harry King hopes that Arkansas can take care of business and get to the 10-1 record which would possibly make the Arkansas at LSU game very important. (King pointed out we probably would not win a tie-breaker.)Most people have said that no team except Alabama and LSU has a chance to win it all this year. I do mean win it all. If you win the SEC the last 5 years then you naturally will play in the National Championship game and will win it too.

Trent Richardson and Alabama will try and run away from LSU in the game of year on Nov. 5.

Will history repeat itself this year? We will see. I am shocked that Arkansas went backwards in the BCS after the road victory at Ole Miss. Arkansas was jumped by Kansas State and Oregon this week in the BCS.
