SEC football review, Week 1: IS THE TIDE DONE??? FIRE MARK RICHT???

Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

Your one-sentence review for every SEC game this week.

What did we learn in the first week of SEC football? For the most part, not much.

Alabama 35, Virginia Tech 10

The Tide performed terribly and only defeated a BCS team at a neutral site by 25 points, but it wasn't the 'Bama coaches or players who had the worst day.

Arkansas 34, Louisiana-Lafayette 14

Bert's team played normal American football, but his quarterback did throw 22 times, so maybe he's going soft.

Florida 24, Toledo 6

The Gators rolled up 415 yards but only scored six second-half points, so it's a good thing their defense is still legit.

Clemson 38, Georgia 35

When you're in a top-10 matchup away from home, you can't afford two turnovers and a botched snap on a chip-shot field goal attempt.

Western Kentucky 35, Kentucky 26

We initially forgot about this game, and that, plus the score, shows you the state of the Wildcats' program right now.

LSU 37, TCU 27

In a rare occurrence, LSU won a game with its offense, and the Tigers looked like the SEC's best team.

Oklahoma State 21, Mississippi State 3

Tyler Russell left with a head injury, and the Bulldogs' offense pretty much sucked after that.

Missouri 58, Murray State 14

The Tigers compiled nearly 700 yards of offense and -- ah, who cares?

Ole Miss 39, Vanderbilt 35

Vandy wide receiver Jordan Matthews puked on national TV and had a game-ending drop in a matter of roughly 15 minutes, so how's your day going?

South Carolina 27, North Carolina 10

IS JADEVEON CLOWNEY OUT OF SHAPE OR LAZY OR JUST A TERRIBLE PERSON?????

Tennessee 45 Austin Peay 0

Austin Peay was picked to finish last in FCS' Ohio Valley Conference, so this game tells us nothing about how good or bad Tennessee may be.

Texas A&M 52, Rice 31

As a commenter below pointed out, our original quip on this game was inadvertently deleted -- kind of like Johnny Manziel's first-half play.
