Covering Dixie: Stopping Johnny Manziel, Jadeveon Clowney, Justin Scott-Wesley, and more.

Covering Dixie Like Mildew - The SEC. All your crystal football are belong to us. 

This is for the questions that don't have any answers.
Mike Herndon looks to SEC head football coaches to find out how Alabama can defend against Texas A&M starting quarterback Johnny Manziel. Among those asked are LSU's Les Miles and Florida's Will Muschamp, who led their teams to victories against Texas A&M last season, and Ole Miss' Hugh Freeze and Missouri's Gary Pinkel, who didn't.(

Ready to rebound.

To Hate Like This Is to Be Happy Forever. 
Every Day Should Be Saturday features South Carolina HC "Hatin'-A** Steve Spurrier "sharing" his thoughts on week two of the season, including losing to Georgia. If you can't tell by now, Spencer Hall's hand is moving "Spurrier's mouth." Though this does sound like something the real Old Ball Coach would say.

I'm not even going to try to figure out a quirky song lyric or movie title to describe this one. Roll Bama Roll's "Trunkation" has a little bit a fun over it's "Saban to Texas" satirical piece that got taken a little too seriously, along with looking ahead to the Alabama-Texas A&M game. If you ever wanted to see an elephant impale a member of the Texas A&M Corps of Cadets in the crotch, this is your lucky day. Also, you need therapy.
