Picks & Power Rankings: Feeling old, breaking down

Sep. 15—It’s been a rough week. Not because I was 4-3 on my picks last week and my SEC power rankings need major shifting, but mainly because I’m nursing a bum shoulder.

After Ole Miss finished up a gritty road win over Tulane last Saturday, I went out in the backyard to play some football before the Mississippi State kickoff. A few x-rays and a broken shoulder blade later, I’ll be okay. But I need to be better on picks.

And why do people keep blaming this injury on age? I’ll turn 30 next month. Sheesh, do I already have to begin hearing about how old I am?

I keep betting against Coach Prime, but maybe I’ve finally learned my lesson.

LSU at Mississippi State (11 a.m./ESPN)

After stopping Jayden de Laura and the Arizona offense just short last week, Mississippi State gets a step up in difficulty this week with Jayden Daniels and LSU coming to town.

The Bulldogs last defeated the Tigers under then first-year head coach Mike Leach to open the 2020 season. Perhaps the program can recreate similar magic in Zach Arnett’s first SEC game as head coach.

If so, it’ll almost surely feature big time plays from Jo’Quavious Marks and Jett Johnson.

My prediction: 27-13, LSU

Georgia Tech at Ole Miss (6:30 p.m./SEC Network)

The Rebels are 2-0, but much like the program’s undefeated start in 2022 there are plenty of questions still unanswered.

With Alabama on the horizon, Ole Miss must play focused against Georgia Tech. The running game has to get going, and that starts up front with the offensive line. The defense must play more physical, starting with the linebacker position.

The positives are there as well. Jaxson Dart has taken a step forward and the defense has played plenty well enough to win in the first two week.

My prediction: 41-10, Ole Miss
