Auburn’s Nick Marshall was thought to be the SEC’s best QB entering this season.
With none of the M&M&M Boys (Manziel, McCarron and Murray) around, he seemed the likely candidate.
Marshall had just put together a Cam-like season in leading the Tigers to the SEC title and the national championship game and was voted to most of the preseason All-SEC teams.
He’s playing exceedingly well again this fall, but quality QB play has lifted the two Mississippi schools to the top of the SEC and added oomph to Alabama’s offense.
Let’s take a look at the SEC’s top QBs this season:

I hope you enjoyed the first weekend of college football.
Here’s how the SEC stacks up after the first week of the season. I will update this on Monday morning every week.
1. Texas A&M — Boom! Where did that come from? Especially since few folks were expecting an offensive explosion in the absence of Johnny Manziel. The Aggies let everybody know they’ll be a force this season.
2. Georgia – If Texas A&M ruled the air, Georgia controlled the ground in its win over Clemson. Did Vince Dooley replace Mark Richt?
3. Auburn — Nick Marshall was voted preseason All-SEC. Just think. He [More]

So maybe Johnny Manziel was a product of the system.
Don’t believe that.
But Kevin Sumlin has something special going on at Texas A&M.
Kenny Hill picked and plucked South Carolina from his first pass to his last. He threw for 511 yards — breaking Manziel’s team record — to lead the Aggies to a shocking 52-28 victory over the Gamecocks.
We were once used to seeing Steve Spurrier’s QBs putting up obscene numbers, but Hill — making his first career start in a stadium that’s given plenty of visiting QBs the 1,000-yard stare [More]

Do you want a free couch?
If so, head to the Ashley Furniture HomeStore in College Station, Texas, and then hope and pray Texas A&M defeats South Carolina by 10 points or more in the opener on Aug. 28 (6 p.m. SEC Network).
If that happens, the store will repay their customers who buy furniture during it’s 12-day Kickoff Event, which runs from Saturday and until Aug. 27.

You can find odds on everything these days, even how long Kim Kardashian’s marriage to Kanye West will last.
So it’s no surprise that Heisman Trophy odds are already listed, nearly two months before the start of the season.
The favorite, according to Las Vegas sportsbook Bovada is the young man who walked away with the 25-pound bronze man last year — FSU QB Jameis Winston at 3-to-2.

When we last saw Johnny Manziel, he was modeling new Cleveland Browns apparel at the NFL Draft.
He apparently made a lasting impression on at least one Texas A&M official.
Jim Schwertner, a member of the school’s Board of Regents, thinks the school’s stadium should be renamed “Kyle Field: The House that Johnny Built,” to honor Manziel.
Kyle Field is undergoing a $450 million renovation to increase capacity to 102,500.
