Holiday Wish Lists
- ACC | Big East | Big Ten | Big 12 | Pac-12 | SEC



For Under The Tree: For Jeff Driskel to be the collegiate version of Tim Tebow as a passer and not the pro kind.
In The Stocking: An extra chip or three on Jarvis Jones.

For Under The Tree: A real, live win over a top team - okay, Florida sort of counts - with everything on the line.
In The Stocking: One dropped pass by Chris Conley.

For Under The Tree: Lots of Bob, not a lot of Mike.
In The Stocking: To average more than 9.9 points per game in SEC play.

For Under The Tree: Old man football, at least like Georgia plays it.
In The Stocking: Dorial Green-Beckham to play up to his billing for a passing game that was among the least efficient in America.

South Carolina
For Under The Tree: For Jadeveon Clowney to get through the next year with his health and his certain millions intact.
In The Stocking: Better pass protection from a line that struggled way too much against the better teams.

For Under The Tree: For its former Central Michigan and Cincinnati head coach to be as accomplished as the last former Central Michigan and Cincinnati head coach to get a high profile gig.
In The Stocking: To allow fewer than 37 points per game in SEC play against someone else other than Kentucky.

For Under The Tree: One more big year out of James Franklin before he takes the inevitable next step up.
In The Stocking: More schedules without Alabama, LSU and Texas A&M.


For Under The Tree: The realization that being the Bill Belichick of college football is far more realistic than being the Bill Belichick of the NFL.
In The Stocking: The January 8th headline to read: DYNASTY. 

For Under The Tree: Bret Bielema to give Arkansas the same attitude, running game and toughness to the SEC that he brought to Wisconsin.
In The Stocking: A Bielema win in a BCS game.

For Under The Tree: A quarterback that Gus Malzahn can turn into another Cam Newton.
In The Stocking: For a wee bit of time to let the Gene Chizik post-2010 recruiting classes a chance to mature.

For Under The Tree: A different call on 3rd-and-10 with 2:28 to play against Alabama.
In The Stocking: Cleveland Browns head coach Nick Saban.

Ole Miss
For Under The Tree: For Hugh Freeze to continue to make more chicken salad out of chicken feathers - at least compared to the rest of the SEC West.
In The Stocking: A secondary that doesn't get toasted deep quite as much.

Mississippi State
For Under The Tree: More schedules like the first half of the season and less like the second.
In The Stocking: A defensive front that can generate more of a pass rush and a push into the backfield.

Texas A&M
For Under The Tree: For Johnny Manziel's peak to still be a few seasons away.
In The Stocking: Nine more points at home against Florida and LSU.
