We are entering week five of the college football season, and it is still hotter than a billygoat with a blow torch. I mean, c’mon! In Columbia it is 95 degrees, and we are two days away from October! But while the weather may not feel like fall, the games are starting to feel like we are entering into the heart of fall. Does Ole Miss upset Alabama? Does Virginia Tech stun Clemson? And how about the Georgia at Tennessee game?
This week’s guest picker is a South Carolina boy from Spartanburg. Jacob Allen is a huge Gamecock fan, and is currently a law student at the University of South Carolina. When asked what he would do if the Gamecocks became the Shamecocks and lost to A&M, Jacob responded, “I would call up Muschamp and tell him to leave Kurt Roper’s butt in College Station without a map to get back”. Well, Jacob, let’s see what happens this weekend. As always, comment with your thoughts and opinions, and don’t forget to like and share with friends. Have a blessed weekend full of Southern College Football!
Earlier in the week, four University of Florida football players were charged with multiple felonies, bringing this year’s felon total for the Gators to nine. All nine have been charged with fraud, and are currently suspended from the team.
The group is accused of using stolen credit card information to make purchases from the university bookstore and elsewhere. The players even went so far as to take the credit card information, and use it to load cash onto their school issued debit cards. The players suspended are receivers Antonio Callaway and Rick Wells, running back Jordan Scarlett, defensive linemen Jordan Smith, Richerd Desir-Jones, Keivonnis Davis, linebackers Ventrell Miller and James Houston, and offensive tackle Kadeem Telfort.
This weeks Front Porch Football Offensive Game Ball goes to Alabama Crimson Tide running back Damien Harris. Harris was simply dominant in Alabama’s blowout win over the undefeated Vanderbilt Commodores. Harris, a Junior from Richmond, Kentucky, rushed for 151 yards on only 12 attempts while adding 3 touchdowns. This performance helped the Crimson Tide pick up an SEC win by the score of 59-0. Harris and the rest of the Crimson Tide team will look to keep things rolling next week as they play host to the Ole Miss Rebels.
