Everyone loves a good meme. Unless you’re the unfortunate soul immortalized in the meme, that is.
The SEC lends itself to plenty of memes, social media’s version of the visual one-liner.
We found some SEC memes pertinent to Week 1 action in the conference.
Les Miles is quite insistent that none of his players take the Lambeau Leap during LSU’s Week 1 opener against Wisconsin on the hallowed grounds of the Green Bay Packers. The Tigers head coach had a very clear message for anyone thinking of jumping into the stands after a touchdown.
“If anybody jumps for the Lambeau Leap, they’ll end up with their thumb out to see if they can get a ride home,” Miles said via NFL.com’s Chase Goodbread.
UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen drew the ire of Texas A&M days before the Bruins’ and Aggies’ season-opener in College Station. More like drew the wrath of Texas A&M’s 12th Man fan base after claiming that all crowds sound the same after 50,000 people. Expect all 102,733 on hand at Kyle Field to simultaneously let Rosen know how they feel every time sophomore takes the field in Week 1.
First-year Georgia head coach Kirby Smart finally announced his much-ballyhooed starting quarterback for Week 1 against North Carolina. He opted to go with veteran senior Greyson Lambert over true freshman Jacob Eason.
Lane Kiffin will face Southern California for the first time since he was fired by the Trojans five games into the 2013 season. Kiffin was allegedly pulled off the team bus at the airport, relieved of his coaching duties, and not permitted to take the ride back to campus after a 62-41 loss to a particularly unspectacular Arizona State team in Tempe. Kiffin wound up at Alabama as offensive coordinator for Nick Saban and has gotten the last laugh with a College Football Playoff championship in 2015.
The world is finding out now what Mississippi State fans knew the last four years. Dak Prescott is a heck of a quarterback. The former Bulldog is tearing up the preseason for Dallas. He will likely earn the start in the Cowboys opener against the New York Giants, thanks to yet another unfortunate injury suffered by Tony Romo.
New South Carolina head coach Will Muschamp is bringing his (should-be) patented death stare to the Gamecocks this season. Up first for the fiery coach is what should be a tough defensive struggle with Vanderbilt. Whether or not the Gamecocks are looking past the Commodores and toward their Week 2 contest with Mississippi State is unknown. You will have to ask Muschamp. The optimal part of that sentence being “you” are the one who has to ask him.
