But this opening weekend? The SEC has outdone itself this time.
Seriously, outside of Kentucky, LSU, South Carolina and Vanderbilt, it’s difficult to pinpoint what we might find out about SEC teams this first week.
If you like glorified scrimmages at $40 and $50 a head, then you’re going to have a blast this weekend.
If not, then you might want to tread lightly.
Seven of the SEC’s 12 opponents this week didn’t have a winning record last season.
Arkansas, Ole Miss and Tennessee will be trying to get a leg up in the Ohio Valley Conference race, as all three teams open the season against FCS opponents from the OVC.
