It's safe to say SportsNation has been slow to jump on the Jevan Snead bandwagon.

Snead ranked a distant fifth behind Tim Tebow, Sam Bradford, Colt McCoy and Jahvid Best in SportsNation's preseason Heisman rankings. That was after he received fewer first-place votes than Kellen Moore, Daryll Clark, Terrelle Pryor and Todd Reesing as the game's best quarterback. All of which may explain why Snead's team has been slow to pick up steam in SportsNation's Power Rankings, still lagging a spot behind their actual national ranking.

A September game against South Carolina might not convince everyone, but with the national stage to himself tonight. Snead has a chance to impress a lot of people -- even those who voted him to the all-conference first team this summer.


We are ahead of Ole Miss for Total D, Rush D, and Pass D right now. Considering the competition I would've assumed Ole Miss would be ahead of us.

Same story every year around here in Columbia for like the last 10 to 15 years... Everybody gets all jacked up for another big game just to remind themselves why SC is always mediocre at best! LOL!

Garcia will get blitzed which will do 2'll first allow him to scramble and make good gains with his legs, and 2nd keep that weak rebel secondary running around and tiring out. Should open up plays from the TE. I see Snead having a terrible game. I see OM struggling in the first half....and pulling out a close victory in the end.
