"If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?" Or more to the point, if a hot quarterback fails a drug test, will anyone know about it? I wonder if Garcia would still be on the team if Connor Shaw had stunk up the joint against Kentucky last week?

LAST WEEK (5-1)-----OVERALL (42-9)

Alabama @ Mississippi – Mississippi has had a week off to prepare for the Tide. It will do them as much good as the week off did Vandy. ‘Bama 48 – Mississippi 10

Florida @ Auburn – I don't think Florida's quarterback woes will allow them to keep up with Auburn's offense, Auburn's defense notwithstanding. Look for a close, high-scoring game. Auburn 42 – Gators 38

LSU @ Tennessee – Simms is a serviceable quarterback for the Vols, but with no running game and a decimated receiving corps, the big orange is going to take a lot of lumps in the next few games. LSU 41 – UTK 17.

South Carolina @ Mississippi State – Unfortunately for Connor Shaw, Mississippi State is not Kentucky, and MSU needs this a lot more than the Gamechickens. Bulldogs 24 – Garcia-less Gamecocks 21

Georgia @ Vanderbilt – One of the nation's top defenses against one of the nation's worst offenses. It doesn't take a particularly astute observer to predict the outcome of this game. UGA 28 – VU 7 Top Stories
