SEC lineup of games far from must-see TV this week
This weekend's SEC lineup doesn't hold much national appeal, unless the scheduling backfires.
After opening with some made-for-TV games, the Southeastern Conference's Week 2 lineup includes several games that shape up to be lopsided mismatches.
Texas A&M versus Lamar doesn't hold quite the same appeal as the Aggies' inaugural SEC Network game with South Carolina.
The list goes on: Auburn-San Jose State, LSU-Sam Houston State, Arkansas-Nicholls State, Alabama-Florida Atlantic, Mississippi State-UAB. The only league game is No. 15 Mississippi versus Vanderbilt. The top nonconference game is probably South Carolina against East Carolina.
Alabama coach Nick Saban says the challenge shouldn't change whether you're playing Michael Jordan or just some "old basketball player." Saban says he'll be mad if that's not his players' approach.
