Despite how outlets feel after two weeks a -- LSU vs Alabama isn't the only game happening in the conference let's take a look at -- any -- SEC. Vanderbilt and Florida. It's not for Vanderbilt stubbornly being Vanderbilt includes losses to Georgia and Arkansas this game could have much more important ramifications that are already done. Davies looking for a rare win over the gators and -- -- itself and that perhaps the second tier SEC -- Florida looking for a soft place where since they've lost their last four games. -- all -- rights they should win as The Commodores are arguably the better team but. Vanderbilt will have to stop being Vanderbilt first and I won't take him to win until they finally do you turn the mental corner new Mexico state of Georgia. Georgia fans had better be -- of old -- Drug tested on a non conference week. Otherwise running back Isaiah drove well and others -- this game that actually matters Georgia should be New Mexico State but sure. Doesn't always equal will New Mexico State already has wins over Minnesota and New Mexico this year and figures to make more per game of this contest and otherwise should be. Georgia meanwhile gets -- slap yourself on the back for getting tough on drugs a week before or not all of the Auburn game Mississippi and Kentucky. The loser of this game will be unequivocally. No worse team. In the SEC injuries have played a role in both teams struggled and Kentucky has really been hit hard here lately. The rebels have lost eleven straight CC games dating back last season but -- drought in the blue grass. The Middle Tennessee State and Tennessee. Three weeks ago Tennessee scored seven points against LSU that's the largest point total of the last three weeks for the volunteers. No wonder Bulls coach Derek Dooley was pulled up the threat of losing this game is press conference this week because it might actually happy. Blue Raiders have enough offense to do -- the question is whether the defense is good enough to stop the -- Tennessee is having quarterback issues and must win this game to have a shot at bowl eligibility look forward to be closer than it ever should have been in a normal year SAS Carolina. Arkansas South Carolina is fighting for -- SEC championship lives provided Georgia doesn't lose against South Carolina has to win out against Arkansas and Florida in order to make it to Atlanta. But what sort of -- order months ago but the loss of running back Marcus Lattimore has made it -- speed wore it doesn't help that Georgia. Beyond most of the -- -- SEC schedule. -- joy and barely acceptable following his rise to the starting quarterback job for the game Cox and now we get the play one of the league's toughest road venues in May. Health south Carolina's one ray of hope revolves around the fact that Arkansas hasn't been on his game the last few weeks if the Razorbacks allowed the gamecocks to stay in the game the way they did against Ole miss him Vanderbilt -- game Cox are good enough to win. Tennis scene Marten said Mississippi State Harvard of the -- coast the start stand and face the cold slowed them what should be at least the biggest mismatch of cultures this week. Eugene Oregon has been respectable this year with most of the losses coming by -- -- good teams in this division but this is the SEC is even at this point -- like Mississippi -- figures to have a clear advantage.

Rates in the LSU and Alabama all day long right here -- can raising -- on veterans boulevard come on out and donors but tiger radio on WW yeah. How both play a little bit different style going to utilize a little bit differently. -- but guys that are very capable both guys of beating you. -- in terms of what they do well how they've been able to run the ball effectively and make big plays down the field in the passing game occurs most skilled guys they have. Alabama coach. Nick -- on the LSU quarterback Jarrett Lee and Georgia was a welcome back we -- -- in Greece in it can on -- bowl of all it is a big party out here today come on out to get tickets at about that so much going on.

Where or at the end of the crop which is a -- squad to play you know -- here now and much it is neat place for a party in the OK okay. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Expect more people on campus that Tibet than they've ever in the history at -- football it's gonna be a big day to play and are coming up here a lot of folk so it was gonna come look for tickets for the like. -- technical partner opted for tickets so you find on the QB Archie for Utley to kick it. Early 400 dollars -- better when going for seven -- 800 dollar so he's got the cash -- fugitive pretend to be able by the ticket -- but right now. But the audience in Eaton and Ayala got our problems that you and I thought we Rose to appear. It's almost like a stock market day out -- I'm sure it's it's patience is gonna pay office. As close as it gets to kick off abs just some of the prices the -- and -- -- I'll be saying man I gotta get something put these tickets and then. Notice that people to be impatient alcohol is prone to say man don't let those tickets could await. So you know that's kind of a cat and mouse chess match that it's gone back to point if you go to idiot if you're not gonna give him. But what you you don't earlier is that all of this came about this 7 o'clock kick off. But some structuring BA ESP in the on CBS and so forth any other issue became the big winner of this where in the past the prime game LHU has been selected on CBS parties here. It's basically the LSU Florida match up. It was shootout LSU and Alabama all going to be another 230 kickoff CBS sports to deal but we know jaded next year next November providing it is the first week in November. The I -- Alabama game in that route will be a night game. Kelly fantastic -- get the good they get this -- that that we get to. We need him SEC championship game with -- LSU Alabama at night it and you have to beat them we can have I can actually get to speak up we have games we'll have ultimate -- let certain number at the key matchup so. Next season at least prepared he'd want to at night game of the nets beat the opponent that. Happened to beat Alabama. -- quarterback the all afternoon -- here because it is the perfect day here on the beautiful campus of Alabama. Perfect weather expect that a game time ticked off the -- about. Between 55 and sixty right now it's sunny and seventy degree I don't -- -- -- back and looked fine Floyd actually all the rides seldom been -- -- -- -- were -- it made it so I have my main enjoy it out there in Tuscaloosa let's go to Houston thought Ernest. On -- I've -- it's good afternoon thank you for calling WW yeah. -- Ernest how are you. I'd love. All of them though -- all all expert analysis and everything else this week. I agree that the running game as both teams are really good defense good on top not and then the unit in the NCA. Could argue that -- there looking at that you. But the tight is that the air that the player needed to be a Houston that you. Is that -- -- and I think -- they -- Alabama runs and more likely to be a almost -- could go cover two look. So what I've noticed you react in games should be open especially the idea to Pete Peterson. And that tied it there through those few parties happy -- be a huge part in games. I would Paris I think you bring up a good point you gotta figure somewhere down the line. Both these quarterbacks -- Alabama this second -- received mr. Richardson -- eighteen receptions in bears' -- their personal and obviously is that talented senior mister Rudolph marquis maze but. I would think somewhere down lap from accomplished -- zone. A team a candidate don't look for his tight end Brent Smith it was a very good one and only LSU sad thing like you made to DeAngelo Peterson chased -- ball. Jays -- -- had a touchdown reception this year the answer -- Peterson is one of those guys that brings wide receivers deal with the tidy position so. Yes somewhere down allowed think these guys if they're gonna show up and you never know harness our third down and I have a third down and eight in and the conversion in his ballgame. Anything it's that you could be his Q huge something like that could turn out to be just if you -- the game itself. Exactly that worked out being that being -- about Alabama. I can't. It from a from a matchup standpoint do you like it can't look easy break while he was deals. I think that you would be able to exploit. Alabama linebacker -- with I think Alabama could exploit our linebackers because. LSU linebackers more like that you've been basically safeties and linebackers body that he wants the Wales so. And -- that -- what the Burnett so there's. What -- thank you so much my -- you enjoy the game today over in Houston and there it is obviously -- tiger thing coming back former LSU great member of the Buffalo Bills. Joba Joba would thomas' -- -- Kevin in the Tigers knocked off Alabama when it was six rank in that route 24. It's one while also get to barely made city where oh hitter he's counted down to LHU and Alabama here are veterans boulevard in Canada viewed video news time approaching six. You -- 1232 it's not the first -- with Donnie. He makes quality decisions you know he's very confident. With this pros. And now. He's done he's protected pretty well so. That being said. I think it I think he's only doing the things that their coaches are asking him to do. LSU coach less miles on Alabama sophomore quarterback eight Dave -- and the best that they. He's a perfect eight knows it's not a three picks this season but -- came the first game he's only thrown one interception in seven weeks so. Ball security will be at a premium this afternoon 504260187803. 866889. Theory to the top does not welcoming at home LHU great -- -- -- -- great team a year ago. And the last policy but now he's a part of the surprising the top of the AFC east. Buffalo Bills we pleasure to welcome in now Kelvin Sheppard to the radio level. -- thank you so much how are you. I'm sure your partner. Gillick and last year -- game but not as big but the players. I don't know because when you guys play Alabama go back to the 08 season when you guys kind of struggle. That game with all the -- and they were number one came and attack this thing and you guys at basically had a Monroe to a top one top two team. The play is just they give up for this type of ball game -- I'd be surprised -- if it's not -- although brawl like you guys handed you'll four years in Baton Rouge. All right here at the and then on the review without them. Your -- you're an immediate career body out -- mean it that can be number one or number two. But in my mind that always blow it would not be here. On the movie that maybe you would be a huge new day part -- you -- it goes the shoulder. Any of the that your first Cavuto or down in the by. And now the game that we all look forward to LAQ. Do agree emotion it appeared emotionally or. We. It being our ability he has got to -- coat check out they head coaching it -- -- right there so. We want to go out game not only will we have made game day if you would try to dominated the late in note they're great post man great coach you better. -- trying to not.

Are you surprised cabinet how dominant the defense has played lose in the likes of yourself Patrick in Drake from a year ago. Oh all of those who -- -- would not know here that -- -- the values that they -- but not on the right note because we think.

We'll keep Bob -- Folks who are excited about the final game of the regular season of course look at the bracket for you later tonight those two games with the pin on now. Things shake out and the rest of the state to the phone to go this city for Darryl on I want Darrel good evening thank you for calling WW -- Maybe you don't as a -- rookies and they listen you know I just wondered goes on within it he Alabama defense. Is this pretty much the same defense -- -- last year. Tiger Stadium -- -- Well when you think about it they. I knew you would have to be and I know you don't wanna beat up I mean I'm just have a true anytime you lose a first round defensive lineman that was taken the top. Did the draft you would have to say to defense and land -- spoke. A top team play an NFL draft him also there is so. I don't know you know how good their defense and I statistically there's stats are a better overall but when you lose a player like that that it's it's -- to replace a player like it. We've obviously looked at it and I think like a lot of chances bats is moot because of the competition exploded. You know and and I am and I'm looking at the fact that I don't know exactly -- -- -- grassroots -- the point -- And she's certainly. Dominated the game in the second half last year it used to be. I mean there that we completely random in the you don't have that he's got beat by everybody -- yard touchdown on compiling a little bit particularly in the corner. But I have to let you know I think there and execute the game close. I think Alabama is about an odd yards so I mean as -- -- -- throughout last year we had the same issues. We read my -- and some substantial freshmen contributors. You know Billy's not the least of which is evident from junior. So I want this quarter and it looked like that and you know you keep them on the same -- would you expect results it was in the same defense. You know certain policy -- and so we appreciate. Them. -- thousand that the big dealer and home field advantage and then -- have a legitimate player. What do you think immediately it would of been on these issues deeply sorry -- our. They didn't constraint with Matt Albers -- out of -- I think he could make that -- quarterback on the issue of. Well no matter what string you put a metal Oilers he plays for Alabama he's the second kinds of decent quarterback in the SEC and all that is just talk down to data base total to feel bay we can break it down I thought -- -- -- face but. It's seeming prince and the team to purple gold and why they don't decide the outcome of those. I doubt thank you very much command back -- it's the same defense but you know. Sometimes you get better as you all needed -- deficit in nearly. They were the quarterbacks LSU the last three years with a much better they all -- so. On all -- I'll go and -- that your opponent is the one that all the school forward you've faced tonight but in there. Cornerback -- -- -- were counted out to LSU and Alabama had told him reason cannot on veterans boulevard here on tiger radio WW. I fall more big hours to go next now we'll go to Tuscaloosa -- -- very own. In the state of Louisiana they college football there are some other games. With -- blue report which Jordan Figo also Travis trial of them all on line dot com -- give -- the Alabama side of things in particular today's opponent. The eight no crimson attack. Most continuing coverage you hear from coach Saban brought interview with LSU defense that wanted to Giants Davis and also we'll visit with Desmond Howard. Tiger radio on WW yeah.
