SEC REPORT CARD: SCHOOL IS BACK IN SESSION- Did you hear that Florida?





 The demise of the GREATEST CONFERENCE in football history – like Mark Twain said about his reported death - has been greatly exaggerated. Deal with it ESPN.

 ARKANSAS – Grade B-
This game is a worse indicator of academic football success than NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND. I like the big guy. This year Coach Bret Bielema will have all grades severely reviewed by the fat back in Fayetteville.
Arkansas 49
Florida A&M 7

 MISSOURI- Grade B-
What if they played an SEC football game and nobody cared. This is what happened.
I will try to keep from saying this repeatedly -why are they in the league?
Missouri 72
Missouri State 43

SOUTH CAROLINA – Grade A
The Gamecocks will not win the SEC EAST. They will go to a good bowl and be the spoiler for UGA, or UF for the EAST title.
South Carolina35
NC State 28

FLORIDA – Grade F
F is for Failure of drug tests and letting down the pride of the SEC as the only SEC loser this weekend.
Florida 17
Michigan 33

KENTUCKY – Grade B+
Solid win for the Cats. They let this one slip away last year.
Kentucky 24
Southern Miss 17

MISSISSIPPI STATE –  Grade B-
The school beneath Ole Miss played a school beneath FCS or D1 status. (Cousin Eddy loves to call the REBS The School Up North-Yankee humor I suppose) This told us that Mississippi State would rule in THE BIG SOUTH CONFERENCE.
Mississippi State 49
Charleston Southern

GEORGIA – Grade A
Georgia 31
App State 10
Georgia played solid against what haters want to admit was a very solid challenge in App State. I’ll say it-App State is as god as several SEC teams.
The UGA freshman Fromm studied and picked up the pace when Eason was injured.
A solid shutout performance until the backup punter came in th play QB and the shut out was lost.

OLE MISS –Grade B
Coach Matt Luke had his offense popping and us wondering if there is any D in store for the Rebs this year. Like upcoming sanctions from the previous coaching administration we will find out.
Ole Miss 47
South Alabama 27

ALABAMA- A+
Dear best team(s) in the ACC, this will happen to you 9 out of 10
times you play BAMA.
Alabama 24
Florida State 7

VANDERBILT
Vanderbilt 27
Middle Tennessee 6

LSU- Grade B-
The Mad Hatter was canned after the best decade in LSU history. His Tigers won a National Championship and played for another. Enter a colorful coach with a 300% winning record as an SEC head coach. He is a career defensive line coach and yet he was hired to spice up the offense. Looked like the same O with Coach O.
LSU 27
BYU 0

TEXAS A&M – Grade A  F for they forgot to play in the FOURTH QUARTER
As this report is being filed the Aggies are crushing UCLA on Sunday night.
Texas A&M
UCLA

TENNESSEE- Pending grade B  (Labor Day Monday night game)
This grade of B is pending as surely Butch will beat the Bees? Right Butch?
Tennessee – better score
Georgia Tech - hopefully not better


Ease up America. Jesus is Lord and football is fun.
Go Dawgs and beat the Irish!
Lift Jesus Up!

A Christians Response to Adultery- Unfaithfulness

Proverbs 6:32
But a man who commits adultery has no sense;
whoever does so destroys himself.

The news from the campus of The University of Mississippi, The Flagship – Ole Miss, is causing a lot of news for a slow news week
in the small campus of Oxford, MS.

Many people are hurting today despite the fact no blood was spilt. The head football coach resigned in disgrace. From news reports he privately admitted to calling a prostitution agency for services. He was previously beloved and at the same time hated for his Christian stance. He was associated with a national Christian sports ministry. 
Most importantly he is the husband and father to young girls.


He was the leader of a major college football program.
He was making over 4 million dollars a year.
The attention might be misunderstand to those 
who do not love Ole Miss, football or Jesus.

Character assassination is the best way to void
any Christian witness short of physical murder.

Everybody will eventually have their day in sports. Sports are my recreation not my standing before God. I really do not care if you love my alma mater or not. A Christian leader crushed his soul by betraying his wife, children and witness by his actions. I was just reading a quote from Bob Russell’s book ‘When God Builds A Church’. The quote was about the fidelity of a leader. “You’re the example, not the exception.”
The church of my youth is still suffering from unfaithfulness in the pulpit from over 40 years ago.

Christians should mourn for the dishonor to the ministry given to the Lord, his family, and the vast ripple effect this great sin of adultery has on others we will never know it damaged. Then look to restore the faith of the fallen.


Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around 
like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
