Last Weekend

LSU won a heavyweight fight against Florida that felt in doubt most of the game with Florida driving to tie before throwing an interception in the end zone during the fourth quarter. Texas A&M bowed to the Crimson Tide as Kyle Field wasn't enough of an advantage to help tilt things back in the Aggies favor. The Bulldogs fell to an underdog, how on earth did South Carolina pull that off?

Stars of Last Weekend

Clyde Edwards-Helaire, the running back of the LSU Tigers, had 134 yards on only 13 carries and scored 2 touchdowns. Toted the rock in a big spot, Clyde crushed it in a big game.

John Rhys Plumlee, running back of Ole Miss, for the second week in a row went off, notching 143 yards on 23 carries with 2 touchdowns. Reader may think I'm a fan but honestly, I'm just impressed.

Tua Tagovailoa, quarterback of Alabama, played amazingly in the first big game of the season for Alabama, putting four touchdowns on the board.

Games to watch this weekend

We're in the heart of conference play and there are lots of teams looking to capitalize on the altered landscape after both Georgia and Florida lost. Missouri now controls their own destiny into the SEC championship game and travels to Vanderbilt to play their first game in first place of SEC-East. Florida comes to South Carolina who just managed the upset against Georgia in overtime, can they steal another game? Texas A&M goes to Ole Miss after losing a rough game against the king of the SEC, Alabama.

Players to watch this weekend

Kellen Mond, quarterback of Texas A&M, they've lost enough to no longer be ranked but they still have a season to finish and at 3-3 things could go either way. It's up to Kellen Mond to lead the Aggies to something better than a .500 season.

Kelly Bryant, quarterback of Missouri, they woke up Sunday morning the leaders of their division in the SEC. All they have to do is play good football and keep winning.

Joe Burrow, proved himself last weekend against Florida and even more so in the press conference afterwards where he sounded like a leader and someone who wanted to keep winning football games. This guy is impressing me every week.

Texans to hire David Culley. Composite image by Jack Brame

Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Texans will hire former Ravens assistant head coach David Culley as their new head coach. John McClain reported earlier on Wednesday that the coaching hire was narrowed down to Culley and Bills DC Leslie Frazier.

Now the question becomes, what does Deshaun Watson think of the hire? Culley has no experience as a head coach but did work closely with Andy Reid from 1999-2012 in Philly and 2013-2016 in KC. Many believed that Chiefs OC Eric Bieniemy would be the next Texans coach because of his years learning from Reid. But the Texans opted for the lesser-known Culley instead.
