SEC Football: Former AU Coach Pat Dye on Saban, he ‘ain’t a better man than Chizik’

Former Auburn football coach Pat Dye has a lot to say in this interview—and it’s a short interview.

Among some of the zingers he lets loose, LSU isn’t as good as their, now former, No. 2 ranking made them seem, despite Alabama’s success, Auburn still has the better head-to-head record (well, at least overall since 1981), and those calling for Gene Chizik’s head are being “ridiculous”.

Obviously Auburn exposed a few glaring weaknesses in LSU armor this past Saturday but, in Dye’s opinion, his Tigers are still a year away from being a good team—still plenty of growing left to be done at quarterback and on defense—that said, by the end of the year, he feels they could be pretty good and may give a few teams a run for their money.

How Auburn show up in the next handful of games will tell the world plenty about how much can be gleaned from their near-defeat of then No. 2 LSU.

Georgia Football: DB Sanders Commings, ‘We’re trying to get to Miami’ [VIDEO}

Georgia defensive back Sanders Commings was asked if it’s difficult for the team to remain focused after winning so many games in such a dominating fashion; has complacency or overconfidence begun to set in?

Commings stated the team has no trouble getting ready for each opponent because the ultimate goal is “getting to Miami” and every team they face is one that could, potentially, stop them from reaching said goal. (Miami is the location of the 2012 BCS Championship Game).

Hear more of what Commings had to say about Georgia’s upcoming contest against Tennessee and whether or not his teammate, Branden Smith, will have any trouble covering the Vols’ two biggest receiving threats—Cordarelle Patterson and Justin Hunter.
