Saturday Down South looked at the different factors at play in Saturday’s game between Texas A&M and Alabama. They presented the five things that could be in favor of each team on two separate posts bringing up things like best players, fans, coaches, and stats. In short it is similar to a notes page about all of the potential outcomes and storylines, but it works to show fans what could happen in the game and why it is important.
This article by Bleacher Report explores the implications of a Mississippi State win on Saturday for head coach Dan Mullen. They look at his record as well as speak with him directly. For future ramifications, the article suggests that Mullen could be “coaching for his job” in 2014 if the program does not move forward this year. This type of story does happen with some regularity, as it did with Mark Richt in recent years, but in many ways, it holds more significance than a single season impact because a failure at the coaching position could have repercussions for many years to come.
