Here’s what we’re not overreacting to in the SEC after Week 10:
Will Muschamp’s job security: Did Florida’s dominant win in Jacksonville provide Muschamp another season at Florida? Don’t jump to conclusions. It certainly helped his immediate case, but this season’s home loss to Mizzou was a better reflection of the current state of the program than the Gators’ rare win over their division rival. Coming off an embarrassing 4-8 campaign, it doesn’t appear Muschamp’s the coach who can lead Florida back to prominence. If he is, he’ll likely need to win out to secure a warm hug from Jeremy Foley and the rest of Gator Nation at the end of the season.
Remember to set your clocks back and that Will Muschamp is the last coach to beat Mark Richt and Jimbo Fisher.

to my Florida fans Which would you rather happen, lose to vandy this week and know it gets Muschamp fired or win and get another yr of WM? — Chardee MacDennis (@country_cookin) November 2, 2014
Mizzou as the SEC East frontrunner: Are we really buying stock in a team that lost at home to Indiana as the SEC East favorite? Thanks to Florida’s win over Georgia, a team the Tigers lost to — at home — by 34 points without Todd Gurley, Mizzou is back in the driver’s seat as the defending division champ. Despite season-long inconsistencies on offense, Gary Pinkel’s squad controls its own destiny with three winnable games — Texas A&M, Tennessee and Arkansas — remaining.
Mizzou SEC East leading profile: Indiana’s only Power 5 win, fifth-worst offense in Power 5.

Mizzou controls its own destiny to win the SEC East again. I’m excited to see how this scenario will ultimately rip my heart out.

Just realized that Mizzou will probably win the sec east…and they lost to Indiana.

Mark Richt’s big-game failures: It started in the second half Saturday, shortly after the Bulldogs fell behind by 17 points against Florida. Roars of Richt’s ineptitude in ‘big games’ peppered Bulldogs message boards and spread like wildfire through social media. Georgia wasn’t prepared for Florida’s stubborn running game and was dominated at the point of attack. But instead of focusing on Georgia’s first loss to Florida in four seasons, Richt needs to alter the negative stigma with a win over Auburn in two weeks. This is the same coach who sidestepped off-the-field distractions and won back-to-back SEC road games this season without his best player.
For the first time since arriving at UGA, I think #MarkRicht‘s job is seriously in danger.

So, Mark Richt has lost control again. Huh? — Peyton’s Head (@PeytonsHead) November 1, 2014
