Friday’s Fast Five: Alabama Crimson Tide0

Alafb

It’s Friday of the Florida-Alabama game, so we are asking our fast five questions this week to Alabama Crimson Tide staff writer Michael Richter. Alabama has gotten its season off to another promising start after beating West Virginia in its opener and now will step on the field for the first time this season against another SEC school in Florida. While Alabama seems to be ironing out its early season quarterback situation, they will welcome a Gator team to Tuscaloosa coming off a triple overtime win over Kentucky at home last weekend.

Lessons From Tennessee’s Trip to Norman0

bjones

By Michael Hickerson

After dominating in their first two games of the season, the Tennessee Volunteers hit the road Saturday evening to take on the Oklahoma Sooners in a nationally televised game that would serve as the first big test of the season for how progress is being made under coach Butch Jones.  And while I wanted the Volunteers to win the game (even predicting such an outcome in my weekly picks for the site), I was realistically hoping for the team to stay competitive for four quarters and have a chance to pull an upset on the road against Bob Stoops and the Big 12 Sooners.

Earlier,  we asked our fast five questions of Georgia Bulldogs staff writer Jason Morman on this weekends big game between the Bulldogs and Gamecocks. Now, we give you the South Carolina perspective with South Carolina Gamecocks writer Lauren Boatright. The Gamecocks have bounced back from a opening weekend loss with a victory over East Carolina last weekend and now welcome the Bulldogs to Columbia tomorrow for a game that carries a lot of incentive for both schools. The Gamecocks have improved and will have the added benefit of hosting the game in Williams-Brice Stadium where the Bulldogs haven’t scored over 20 points in a game there since 1994. Well, lets talk to Lauren about our Friday’s fast five questions of the week.
