Well folks, it’s that time of year again. You know what I’m talking about, that time of year that we all dread, and no I’m not talking about having to spend Christmas with your in-laws and your spouse’s gassy grandmother. It’s the end of the 2013 college football season, and no amount of praying to Santa will bring it back.
The SEC, once again, had a fantastic season. Mizzou surprisingly dominated the SEC east, while Auburn, who didn’t win a single SEC game last year, won not only the SEC west, but they defeated the reigning champions, Alabama, on their way to becoming the SEC champions themselves, and earning a spot in the BCS National Championship Game against Florida State.
In celebration of the end of the 2013 college football season, I have compiled for you, a group of GIFS that thoroughly and accurately depicts each and every SEC team. Think of it as a Christmas gift, from me to you. You’re welcome. FELIZ NAVIDAD!
First up, the SEC champs, Auburn. As much as it kills me to say this, Gus Malzahn has the Tigers playing like a well oiled machine, and the Auburn faithful believe this team is a team of destiny…I’m sorry, I’m trying really hard to control my gag reflex. Regardless of the Tiger’s stellar turnaround, Razorback fans will always remember Auburn for Anthony Swain’s mysterious phantom injury.
Next, we have the Alabama Crimson Tide. Things didn’t work out quite like the Tide had imagined they would. Gumps everywhere had an epic meltdown of legendary proportions when Nick Saban decided to attempt a million yard field goal with one second left on the clock. Now Bama fans have to deal with the ever present “Nick Saban to ______” rumors. Just so happens, Texas is calling this time, and the Tide faithful are really hoping Saint Nick stays home.
No way he leaves, right?
(Thanks @kevol80 for the hilarious GIF)
LSU did not have the kind of year that they have come to expect in Baton Rouge. Maybe it is the fact that Les Miles allowed the team to vote Jeremy Hill back on the team after he was accused of statutory rape and sucker punching a guy, or maybe because Zach Mettenberger is a massive tool that likes to fondle women in bars. Here, enjoy a GIF of Hill caught in the act.
You could say that at 8-4, the Texas A&M Aggies did not live up to their fan’s lofty expectations. Johnny Football wasn’t as effective as he was last year, and A&M’s horrendous defense didn’t help either. Regardless of whether or not Manziel’s off and on the field antics were distracting to his teammates, I’m sure Aggie fans are going to react just like this when A&M takes the field next year.
Say it ain’t so, Johnny!
Mississippi State had a great year, well if you consider 6-6 great…which State fans do. Seriously though, the state of Mississippi houses two, count them TWO mediocre football teams, it just so happens that this year, Mississippi State is the better of the two. And how does the state of Mississippi decide which mediocre team is the best mediocre team? Why, with an egg, of course! This GIF is an accurate depiction of what happens when the Mississippi State Bulldogs play football.
We’ve covered one of the proud mediocre Mississippi teams, now let’s talk about the other. Ole Miss has a long and proud tradition of racism and hate mongering. Why, just this year, the football team heckled the theater department’s presentation of “The Laramie Project” a play about openly gay University of Wyoming student, Matthew Shepard. Yep, super classy bunch of kids. Ole Miss has been having an identity crises lately. They can’t seem to decide whether they are the Rebels, the Black Bears, or the Landsharks. Maybe that’s why Marshall Henderson does so much blow. This was supposed to be the season that Ole Miss emerged as a dominant SEC team, but alas, the Black Rebel Sharks, couldn’t get it done. This GIF portrays the Ole Miss attempt at being number one!
FINS U-U-U-OH GOD!
Sadly, we’ve come to the bottom of the SEC west, and that is where my beloved Razorbacks have taken up residence. As if last season wasn’t enough for Hog fans to have to endure, this season brought a whole new kind of fail to Fayetteville. The Razorbacks went 0-8 in conference play, and the meltdown from fans has been nothing but epic. Several humiliating GIFS come to mind, when describing the 2013 football season for Arkansas, but I think this GIF accurately sums up the season, flawlessly.
And now AJ Derby comes into the game…
