We’re in for a wild Saturday with three major matchups in the SEC, but let’s not move on to the weekend so quickly.
Here’s a recap of the a weird week that included angry moms, dating offers from adult websites and Tim Tebow being tackled.
— FunnyMaine was back with his Week 7 edition of a Bama fan watching every SEC game.
— These SEC Shorts by Al.com never let us down. This week an Alabama fan got his jollies by getting updates on the Tennessee game from a miserable Tennessee fan’s body language.
— Chad Kelly might not be able to land Mia Khalifa but he has another (unnamed) porn star teed up for him if he want.
PornHub has offered Ole Miss QB Chad Kelly a date with an adult film star.

— The QB situation at South Carolina is as clear as mud, but one thing is certain — Brandon McIlwain’s momma isn’t happy. She went to Facebook to rant about how her son hasn’t gotten a fair shot to be Gamecocks’ starter. And with Jake Bentley, the son of running backs coach Bobby Bentley, rumored to start against UMass, she let it all hang out.
“Obviously, any quarterback will shine against UMass who has given up over 400 yards a week passing,” Lena McIlwain wrote. “It’s a total set-up to justify making the switch to the coach’s son.”
You can read the rest of her rant on TheState.com.
— This College GameDay could be fun in Tuscaloosa. Apparently, Lee Corso wanted a baby elephant on set for an Alabama pick in 2014, but there wasn’t enough time to make it happen. Hopefully with a couple extra years to prepare, ESPN makes this happen Saturday if Corso rolls with the Tide.
— Mississippi State super-fan Stingray treated us all to the Auburn fight song and made himself feel better about the Bulldogs by comparing them to an even worse Kentucky team.
— You might want to cover your ears for this one as Fox Sports’ Joel Klatt explained why he thinks Big Ten and ACC football is more interesting than the SEC
— Tim Tebow wants you to get out there and vote … for the Heisman Trophy winner. In this Heisman House video not even Tebow can keep the trophy winners in order. How about Herschel Walker destroying that table? He’s still got it.
— If you thought the trash talk between Tennessee and Alabama was ruthless, you haven’t seen what’s going on this week. Brutal.

— Countless pundits are taking stabs at where Lane Kiffin could be a head coach in the coming years, but Fox Sports’ Stewart Mandel had the most obscure prediction.
“It’s not going to be anywhere near as glamorous as Alabama, but I can think of one possibility for sure. Fresno State, his alma mater, is 1-6 and all but certain to fire Tim DeRuyter,” Mandel said. “It would be the perfect low-profile job at a program where he can win, further restore his image and possibly springboard back to the Pac-12 in a few more years.”
— Nick Saban is a simple man with simple tastes.

— After this rant about hype surrounding his team, Saban might need one of those Little Debbie snacks to perk up.
Nick Saban raises his voices and said he wishes he could shut off the noise around the players about "how good they are, ESPN & all this BS"

— TexAgs produced an incredible video for Saturday’s showdown between the Aggies and Alabama. Here’s a GIF that gives you the gist, but the whole video must be watched.
