Ole Miss (7-0, 6-0; at LSU, 7:15 p.m.): Is this toughest test for Ole Miss to run the table?

Peyton Manning is a common topic around these parts, and we know there are some who think he's the bee's knees and some who circle his postseason mediocrity as the defining part of a great but not an all-time career.

It's Monday, so you know what that means.

Last week, Brentwood Academy cheerleader Griffin Cole and the rest of the Eagles faithful blew into Chattanooga, flexed their muscles and strolled back to Nashville with an easy win.

Peyton Manning is about to break the greatest record a quarterback could get and there has been very little discussion about it.

Here are five things we are intrigued by this week in the SEC:

How does Alabama respond? Nick Saban got ill with the media this week because it was Tuesday. Or because it was the media. or maybe because it was a Tuesday with the media.

OK, after yesterday's marathon opus that was about the size of an Encycelopedia 5-at-10ia, we are short and to the point today.

Let's rank the SEC and review the questions facing each team (with record and Saturday's foe). And everyone expected the college football world to revolve around the state of Mississippi, right? Right?

A wise reader of my daily "5-at-10" at timesfreepress.com said about three weeks ago that you know very little about the NFL until you're six weeks in.

Let's rank the SEC and review the questions facing each team (with record and Saturday's foe). Deal? Deal. And everyone expected the college football world to revolve around the state of Mississippi, right? Right?

Morning, how was your weekend?

The brilliant college career of Todd Gurley looks to be done.

Positioned in her regular spot three rows up on the home side of Spears Stadium, Betty Latham expected another sterling performance at a McCallie high school football game.

We were 4-5 against the number last week and are a positively pedestrian 21-20 this year. Gross.

Dodgers are done and they take the highest payroll — roughly $240 million or about $9.5 million per player in a league which the average salary is less than a third of that — on vacation. Again.

Here's our weekly ranking of the SEC football teams (with record and this week's EDT schedule) and questions facing each this week:

As the calendar turns and we prepare for the clocks to roll, the NFL picture is becoming clearer.

It's Monday, and we do what we do.

On a Friday night filled with rivalry showdowns and potential district championship games, Brainerd viewed the crosstown trek to Howard with a singular purpose.

Hope you are locked and loaded for the weekend.

The Rebels host the nation's best team when Alabama comes calling Saturday.

In recent years, college football Saturdays across the country have been christened by alliteration to try to magnify the meaning.

Four weeks into the NFL season, what do we know and what do we need to know?

Did we actually have an NFL week with no off-the-field drama? Did we?

Man, talk about divisional differences. Not since the Southeastern Conference has split have we seen such disparity. In fact, if Vegas was forced to set a line for the SEC title game this morning it blindly would be West minus-14.5, and they'd take their chances.

Wow, what a weekend. Where to start?

DUNLAP, Tenn. -- From the drive through the Sequatchie Valley to the trim of the numbers on field to the helmets and uniforms of every player on each team, purple ruled Friday night as Marion County rolled Sequatchie County 35-7.

Jay, I started reading your online blog after listening to you and David. I listen every day and you guys are great. I have lived in Nashville and Atlanta before moving here and you guys know more than any sports radio show I have ever heard.

Gang, remember the UGA-UT contest — pick the final score and you could win stuff — this week and the mailbag.

OK, we touched on this on Monday, and we'll likely have pretend Les Miles or pretend Jon Gruden breakdown the matchups of the Tennessee-Georgia game on Thursday's 5-at-10.

How well is the Lane Kiffin experiment going? We'll say off-the-charts good.

There was a sigh of relief across the NFL landscape this weekend as the discussion returned to the field, leaving the courtrooms and news-conference podiums behind.

Gang, it's a monster week, and you guys were money yesterday. Mondays are crazy for us so we didn't respond, but we'll pull a couple of mailbag possibilities out of the dialogue. Oh yeah, remember the mailbag.

Mired in a 4-14 September swoon, the Atlanta Braves fired general manager Frank Wren on Monday, a day after the team was eliminated from the postseason chase.

It's Monday. Hope you are ready for the week, because the week is ready for you.

To be fair, the last couple of weeks have been tough for Roger Goodell.

Right in the lumber yard.

Here are five things we are looking forward to about this weekend of SEC football:

Welcome back kiddies, it's Thursday and that means the weekend is here.

Adrian Peterson has been placed on the exempt list, meaning the star running back will be out of football-related activities until all the legal issues after he was indicted on charges of "reckless or negligent injury to a child" are resolved.

We believe the New Orleans Saints are among the cream of the NFL crop. That said, the cream could be a flop.

As we start to wrap up the appetizers, the SEC's power again is clear. Five of the Associated Press top 10 are from the SEC West, and seven of the top 14 teams in the country are in the conference.
