SEC Fallout: Les Miles, Nick Chubb, Steve Spurrier, and more.

Welcome to the Fallout - SEC edition. 

Ten Years After.
Jim Kleinpeter looks at the effect that Hurricane Katirna devastation of Louisiana and the Gulf Coast has on then first-year LSU head coach Les Miles, and how it continues to effect him today. An absolute must read. (

It this a bad thing or a bad thing?
Charles Odum's Georgia 2015 season preview focuses on the importance of tailback Nick Chubb in the Dawgs' chances on winning its first SEC title since 2005. Having a team's entire season depending on the continued health and success of one player is never a good thing. Sadly, this idea is what Georgia has built its football program around since about 1980. (AP/Yahoo! Sports)

Obligatory Steve Spurrier mention of the day.

I've got a little list. I've got a little list. 
First-year coordinators from the SEC featured on Steven Lassan's list of the "top coordinator hires for 2015" include Auburn defensive coordinator Will Muschamp, Texas A&M DC John Chavis, Mississippi State DC Manny Diaz, and Arkansas offensive coordinator Dan Enos. Conspicuous by his absence: Georgia OC Brian Schottenheimer, which probably isn't a good sign for Bulldog fans, either. (Dr. Saturday)

Chain overreaction.
Ryan Nanni includes the season opening matchups between North Carolina and South Carolina, Louisville and Auburn, Arizona State and Texas A&M, and Wisconsin and Alabama on his list of Week 1 games with "the greatest potential for overreaction." (Every Day Should Be Saturday)

Still Disrespected After All These Years. 
R.B. Fallstrom focuses on the perceived lack of respect Missouri has gotten in his 2015 season preview for the Tigers. Mizzou, the winner of the SEC East for the past two seasons, was projected to finished third in the division this upcoming season by SEC media pundits. (AP/Yahoo! Sports)
