Wow, what a weekend. Where to start?

DUNLAP, Tenn. -- From the drive through the Sequatchie Valley to the trim of the numbers on field to the helmets and uniforms of every player on each team, purple ruled Friday night as Marion County rolled Sequatchie County 35-7.

Jay, I started reading your online blog after listening to you and David. I listen every day and you guys are great. I have lived in Nashville and Atlanta before moving here and you guys know more than any sports radio show I have ever heard.

Gang, remember the UGA-UT contest — pick the final score and you could win stuff — this week and the mailbag.

OK, we touched on this on Monday, and we'll likely have pretend Les Miles or pretend Jon Gruden breakdown the matchups of the Tennessee-Georgia game on Thursday's 5-at-10.

How well is the Lane Kiffin experiment going? We'll say off-the-charts good.

There was a sigh of relief across the NFL landscape this weekend as the discussion returned to the field, leaving the courtrooms and news-conference podiums behind.

Gang, it's a monster week, and you guys were money yesterday. Mondays are crazy for us so we didn't respond, but we'll pull a couple of mailbag possibilities out of the dialogue. Oh yeah, remember the mailbag.

Mired in a 4-14 September swoon, the Atlanta Braves fired general manager Frank Wren on Monday, a day after the team was eliminated from the postseason chase.

It's Monday. Hope you are ready for the week, because the week is ready for you.

To be fair, the last couple of weeks have been tough for Roger Goodell.

Right in the lumber yard.

Here are five things we are looking forward to about this weekend of SEC football:

Welcome back kiddies, it's Thursday and that means the weekend is here.

Adrian Peterson has been placed on the exempt list, meaning the star running back will be out of football-related activities until all the legal issues after he was indicted on charges of "reckless or negligent injury to a child" are resolved.

We believe the New Orleans Saints are among the cream of the NFL crop. That said, the cream could be a flop.

As we start to wrap up the appetizers, the SEC's power again is clear. Five of the Associated Press top 10 are from the SEC West, and seven of the top 14 teams in the country are in the conference.

We believe the New Orleans Saints are among the cream of the NFL crop. That said, the cream could be a flop.

ESPN commentator Hannah Storm delivered a passionate soliloquy last weekend, asking the NFL what it stands for when it comes to domestic violence.

And we're off. It's easy to forget how busy Mondays in the fall get around here. In fact, we're going to breakdown our normal Monday question with five options and try to cram the entire weekend into a normal 5-at-10.

Tennessee and Georgia go on the road and straight into the spotlight of the college football world today.

Needing a fast start and a few breaks, the Red Bank Lions got neither Friday night at Signal Mountain.

Mailbag: At what point do you start to gather your vulchers over Russ Huesman. What you always said about Cuonzo Martin in Knoxville was his team grossly underachieved. He couldn't recruit and you didn't like his in-game decisions and adjustments. I'm not certain if you signed any petition but you certainly were out front beating the drum for his ouster.

Let us not forget the terrible horror that happened 13 years ago this morning. Thanks a fireman or a police officer today, and if you see a soldier, but him lunch. In fact, we're going to take a moment of silence — a rarity for us to be sure — and remember the unforgettable terrorism of 9/11.

Here are five items we are interested in across all of college football:

After a week-one worth of fun, here are the top five and the dregs of the NFL:

After our week one overreactions, let's get back to questions and answers for the SEC teams based on our power poll.

After our week one overreactions, let's get back to questions and answers for the SEC teams based on our power poll. Deal? Deal.

The cuts came and went. Johnny Football is what the Browns told him to act like — a backup quarterback.

Tri-state high school football fans, meet Skye Wilson.

Mailbag: Is there something in the CBA that prevented Roger Goodell from taking a first round pick or two from the Colts? That would seem more equitable and send a much stronger msg.

After a washed away opener for Florida and Thursday night beginning that South Carolina and Vandy wished had been rained out, the SEC heads to week two with few head-turning games and fewer matchups that figure to be close.

The NFL starts tonight, and the season can't get here soon enough.

It's Wednesday of game week. That means a lot of college football items to digest. Here's the 5-at-10's Wednesday Watch Big 5:

We are going to rank the SEC teams on how they looked in week one. This is a power-of-perception ranking, and remember, beauty is in the eye of the beholder (record and Saturday's opponent in parentheses; all times EDT).

We are going to rank the SEC teams on how they looked in Week 1. This is a power of perception ranking, and remember, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

After delivering an overwhelming knockout in their season opener, the Baylor Red Raiders got punched early Friday night against Knoxville Webb.

1) Leaguewide coming-out party. There is a ton of talented newcomers. Seven of the top nine teams in the recruiting rankings last February were in the SEC, and a host of those five-star stud ducks are making their debuts this weekend.

OK, here we are, after a weekend in which Michael Sam's sack made some guy on Twitter famous because he declared bankruptcy for pledging to buy the world a drink if Sam sacked Johnny Manziel and did the money finger salute.

Let's review the league. As always, we'll list these in the order of our personal power ranking:

Welcome back, even if you're not named Kotter.

We can say this for sure: The Tennessee Volunteers' new depth chart will mean record-setting success for the folks who sell pregame programs.

Baylor quarterback Nick Tiano has secured his football future, committing to Mississippi State during the summer.

I started writing an online column at on Oct. 25, 2010, and "The 5-at-10" has been there every Monday-Friday since — 1,000 consecutive Monday-through-Fridays — as of this week.
