Alabama is playing a different game
But in terms of recruiting, development, and strategy, Nick Saban and Alabama are playing a different game than everybody else in college football.

Don't write off LSU just yet
With a strong-as-ever running game, a strangely underrated secondary, and a good-as-always special teams unit, Miles' Bayou Bengals might make us feel pretty silly for doubting them.

Florida vs. aesthetics
After a two-year absence, Florida returned the land of college football's elite in 2012. It did so with what was possibly the least aesthetically pleasing style of play in the country.

The Georgia Bulldogs and timing
The timing was almost perfect for Georgia in 2012. Can the Dawgs and their amazing offense overcome a green defense and a brutal early schedule to put themselves in position for another national title run?

Can A&M get even better?
How do you beat your best season in decades, especially now that your new conference is gunning for you? An all-world quarterback, a navigable schedule, and a rush of new talent sounds like a good start.

The Gamecocks and the Clowney effect
A thin S.C. defense was thinned out even more by graduation, the offense will be relying pretty heavily on an untested sophomore running back, and special teams could be a liability without the star punt returner? Yes, but ... Jadeveon Clowney!

A blank canvas for Tennessee
New Tennessee head coach Butch Jones inherits a team that will be strong in the trenches and who-the-hell-knows just about everywhere else.

Mizzou vs. the second impression
Missouri headed into 2012 with momentum and optimism. Seven losses and countless injuries later, the Tigers were forced to lick their wounds and hope that their second impression in the SEC goes a lot better than the first. Will it?

Vandy enters uncharted waters
Vandy isn't supposed to win or attract four-star recruits, but nobody told head coach James Franklin.

Mississippi State and moving backward
Dan Mullen has taken Mississippi State to three straight bowls, something that hadn't happened since the 1990s (and, before that, hadn't happened at all). But his team has regressed for two straight years.

Auburn fans, please be patient
Auburn's hire of Gus Malzahn made as much sense as any hire this past offseason. Now how quickly can he re-establish the bona fides of a program that has trended downward for most of the last seven years?

Kentucky building for 2014
New Kentucky coach Mark Stoops has passed his early tests with flying colors, recruiting well and drawing 50K to the Kentucky spring game. But the real tests begin in the fall, and the Wildcats likely have a few more to fail before they can become in
