ESPN College GameDay analyst Kirk Herbstreit is paying more attention to the SEC this year than ever before because it's not all about Alabama and Georgia...
“What Jimbo did on the back end of that great win against Florida was impressive,” Herbstreit said on the podcast, via Saturday Down South. “Auburn continues to just kind of look for answers as they lose to South Carolina. How about Mark Stoops not just beating Tennessee but the way they played. They’re sitting there at 2-2, David and I talked about on GameDay could very easily be 4-0. They’re a few plays away from being 4-0.”
“To me the turnaround story of the year continues to be Sam Pittman, former Georgia offensive line coach, goes over to Arkansas and we’ve almost gotten to a point we’ve almost forgotten about that program,” Herbstreit continued. “. . . Dang, Arkansas’ become a fun team to watch and they get a bye week and then they go to Kyle Field to play A&M.”
