(Photo by Donald Page/Getty Images)The Southeastern Conference is known as the best conference in college football and, while that still might be the case, it has opened itself up to some mocking in Week 1.Several SEC programs have turned in frustrating and embarrassing performances to open the 2019 college football season.Tennessee suffered the most-embarrassing loss of the weekend, falling at home to Georgia State.The fan base is currently roasting Jeremy Pruitt.I have watched Tennessee football since I was 3 years old and this is rock bottom. Beyond words. Beyond belief.— Paul Finebaum (@finebaum) August 31, 2019Ole Miss, meanwhile, fell to Memphis. The Tigers are a good team, so this isn’t really a major upset, but it’s not good.FINAL: Memphis 15, Ole Miss 10.If you’re an Ole Miss fan who refers to Memphis as Tiger High, perhaps you should encourage your administration to get a home-and-home series with Tiger Middle. Might be time to move down a level.— Gary Parrish (@GaryParrishCBS) August 31, 2019South Carolina, meanwhile, fell to underdog North Carolina, giving Mack Brown his first win with the Tar Heels.Mack Brown, who hasn’t coached in 5 years, leads a former 2-9 North Carolina team to upset the SEC’s South Carolina! In his FIRST GAME back. There’s a reason he’s in CFB’s Hall of Fame!! 🐐🐐🐐#MackIsBack #NorthCarolina— Emmanuel Acho (@thEMANacho) August 31, 2019In total, it was a rough day for the SEC East.Georgia State > TennesseeNorth Carolina > South CarolinaMemphis > Ole MissThe SEC is like every other conference. A few good teams and then a lot of meh.— Barrett Sallee (@BarrettSallee) August 31, 2019Alabama, meanwhile, looked dominant against Duke, and Georgia is expected to blow out Vanderbilt. Auburn has a chance for a massive win against Oregon, too.The SEC is far from a dominant league to-to-bottom, though.last_img read more
