Saturday will be the Tennessee Volunteers’ 100th meeting with the Alabama Crimson Tide. It will be my 24th straight viewing of this historic match-up and we've never seen one like this. For the Vols, the fear is that it could be remembered for all the wrong reasons. And that's why many are wanting to forget it before it ever kicks off. Its why no one is talking about it. Instead their focus is what might or might not be happening following the game and the following weeks. The Vol-Tide match-up has long been a staple of the CBS College Football television package. This year’s game has made its way to top SEC TV slot, not because of the mystique of the game, but because this is such a bad week
The Georgia Bulldogs are ascending on the field, and on the recruiting trail under Kirby Smart. The latest win for Georgia came on Thursday when Adam Anderson, the No. 57-ranked prospect in the class of 2018, committed to the home state Bulldogs over Alabama in what is another recruiting huge victory for Smart over his mentor Nick Saban. Anderson originally committed to Georgia in August 2016 before flipping to LSU earlier this year. The 6-foot-4, 214-pound pass-rushing outside linebacker opened up his recruitment for a third time July 6 with a focus on Tennessee, Alabama, Auburn, Clemson and Georgia. Along with Georgia's climb into the top 5 of the AP poll, the commitment of the nation's No.
On Sept. 15, coaches from NC State, Georgia and Florida State, among others, were on the sidelines at Harding High in Charlotte to watch the Rams host state power and city-rival Mallard Creek High. Mallard Creek would prevail 30-9 over Harding, but the game was closer than that as Harding actually controlled the action for most of the three quarters before a series of turnovers doomed its chances. NC State head coach Dave Doeren and tight ends/fullbacks coach and special teams coordinator Eddie Faulkner were there to watch four-star lineman Jordan Davis from Mallard Creek and four-star junior running back Quavaris Crouch, four-star offensive lineman Jovaughn Gwyn and three-star defensive back Malik Dunlap from Harding, among likely others.
“[Moore] just does a great job,” Maryland head coach DJ Durkin said. “He’s a very talented guy. He plays hard. He runs good routes and has good ball skills. So we do a lot to get him the ball and design it that way, and he always answers the call and comes to play every week.” On a national scale, Moore is currently 4th in the FBS in receiving touchdowns, 11th in receiving yards, and 13th in receptions per game. The Biletnikoff Award Selection Committee, a group of college football journalists and commentators, as well as some former college football wide receivers choose the recipient of the highly distinguished award from a group of the nation’s top wideouts. And with the way he’s been playing
Question: If you had to pick a midseason Big 12 coach of the year, who would you go with? Carlton: In order, I would go: 1. Gary Patterson. 2. Matt Campbell. 3. Kliff Kingsbury. Patterson has rebounded from a 6-7 season to have the nation's fourth-ranked team as we speak.

Question: With the teams trending in different directions, could Tech be in danger of losing to the Cyclones? Would that be enough to place Kingsbury back on the hot seat? Carlton: Has hot seat become the most over-used phrase this season? Sure seems like it. Every game is big.
