Football is back, and the wild world that is the SEC is in full force. From sunbathers to new Heisman House commercials, this week didn’t disappoint.
— Apparently beating the brakes off the 20th-ranked team in the nation wasn’t enough to convince Alabama coach Nick Saban he has a pretty good football team.
Saban: "We've got to show we can get in the ring with the pit bulls. I'm not sure we've shown that yet."

— You know you got roasted on Twitter when you have to delete your account altogether, which is what Ole Miss QB Chad Kelly did when Mia Khalifa called him out for sliding into her DMs.

— If you think Butch Jones was nervous during Tennessee’s narrow win over Appalachian State, talk to this kid.

— Speaking of Tennessee, I hope Vols fans make a trip to Bass Pro for binoculars before Saturday’s game vs. Virginia Tech at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway.
The field looks bigger in person. I think. pic.twitter.com/VdataJqbTW

— LSU fans want Les Miles gone so badly, they’re willing to foot the buyout bill themselves on the GoFund Me page.
Help the people of Louisiana by going to this particular Go Fund Me account… Please help us!!!

— Who knew Bret Bielema’s GIF game was so strong?

— Fox Sports analyst Joel Klatt thinks Nick Saban bringing Steve Sarkisian to Alabama is more than just a move for the Tide, but a ploy to further hurt LSU’s struggling offense.

— Florida coach Jim McElwain cares about wins no matter how the Gators get them. He even went as far to say: I’m not a pretty guy anyway, so I’ll probably never win pretty.” I can’t decide if he’s fishing for a compliment here or not.

— Georgia DB recruit Latavious Brini raised some eyebrows and blood pressures of Bulldogs fans when he “87.6 percent” committed to Georgia. Then he said fans “don’t really need to worry.” Tell that to the 12.4 percent gnawing at their fingernails waiting for his LOI in February.
— Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze came through with the southern quote of the week as his Rebels prepare to bounce back from a brutal loss to Florida State.
The same boiling water that softens the potato hardens the egg. It's about what you're made of…not the circumstance. @InkyJohnson

— Did someone say Battle at Bristol?

— Steve Spurrier, king of the not-so-subtle insult, found a way to insult his former South Carolina defensive coordinators while talking up new head coach Will Muschamp.
— Mike Gillespie (@MikeABCColumbia) September 9, 2016
— This Heisman House spot featuring former Alabama running backs Mark Ingram and Derrick Henry isn’t shirtless Spurrier good, but it’s not bad.
— I’m not sure if you’ve heard, but Tim Tebow singed a baseball deal with the Mets. The man is gold when it comes to producing social media reaction.
The only good news to the #Mets signing Tebow is now they have a direct line to God in this playoff race.

Tim Tebow can get contracts in multiple sports and I can't even get a good morning text.

— And you know the New York tabloids love Tebow coming to town.
