SEC Football Stock Market: Buy, Sell, or Hold

Posted: Updated:

It's hard to believe, but we are already heading into week four of the college football season. During the preseason I put out an SEC Football Stock Market Report, but what's the stock prices going for today?  

What programs are on their way up, and what programs are on their way down? Here's the SEC Football Stock Report.

Let's pretend that SEC teams are now public traded companies.

  •  Alabama – BUY – This is a pricey stock, but the Tide made it over their biggest hump. Alabama still has to make it past Ole Miss, LSU and the SEC Title game, but another BCS Championship is in sight.


  • Auburn – HOLD – "It's a new day" at Auburn and its showing on the field. Before the season I said BUY the Tigers, but now the schedule is shifting. Three out of their next four games are all losable. Auburn has a night at LSU, home versus Ole Miss, and then at Texas A&M.   


  • Arkansas – SELL – The Hogs are 3-0, but their schedule is about to get brutal: at Rutgers, vs. Texas A&M, at Florida, vs South Carolina, at Alabama. I'm don't like the Razorbacks in any of those games.  


  • Florida – SELL – I said the Gators overachieved last season and it showed up last week against Miami. I think the Gators will win three out of their next four games, but the Gators could lose four more games this season.  


  • Georgia – HOLD – The win over South Carolina put the Bulldogs in the driver's seat for Atlanta. I think the Bulldog fans can start making hotel reservations IF they make it past LSU next week.


  • Kentucky – HOLD – In the long run I think Kentucky stock will pay off, but I don't think they win another game until November! Still though, starting next year I think Wildcat fans will start to see a return on investment.   


  • LSU – HOLD – What do we really know about LSU? The win over TCU looked impressive, but how has TCU looked since that game? The big difference between this year's Tigers, and the ones of the past is this year's team has a vertical passing attack. The next two weeks will say a lot about how good this LSU team really is.   


  • Ole Miss – BUY – The Rebels are picking up where they left off last season. I love the job that Huge Freeze is doing in Oxford, but look at the next four games for Ole Miss: at Alabama, at Auburn, vs Texas A&M, vs LSU. I'm saying buy Ole Miss because I think they win two out of those four.  


  • Mississippi State – SELL – The Bulldogs are 1-2 and cross state rival Ole Miss is unbeaten and ranked. Dan Mullen's seat has to be heating up right now. They do catch a scheduling break, and I think they win three out of their next four, but they will struggle for a win in the back half of the their schedule. It's looking like Mississippi State will be sitting at home this bowl season.


  • Missouri – HOLD – Much like last season I think Missouri is a 5/6 win team. The game to keep an eye on for the Tigers is the October 5th matchup at Vanderbilt. A win over the Commodores might mean a 5-0 Missouri heading to into Athens for a showdown with Georgia.    


  • South Carolina – HOLD – The loss to Georgia was huge because it put them two games behind Georgia (Georgia holds the tie breaker). I've liked what I've seen on offense, but their defensive line has left a lot to be desired.


  • Tennessee – SELL – I like the Butch Jones hire, but it's going to take some time. Their schedule is not getting any easier and I think a good year for the Vols would be 6-6 and a bowl trip.


  • Texas A&M – BUY – They didn't beat Alabama, but they proved they can play with the number one team. Their defense is garbage, but they will be able to outscore everyone one else on their schedule.  


  • Vanderbilt – HOLD – The Dores are out to a 1-2 start, but I still think they will be a 7/8 win team at season's end. They should make it past UMASS and UAB without issue, but the Missouri, Georgia, and at Texas A&M stretch will be telling.

What do you think? Who would you buy, sell, or hold? Let me know on twitter @Patrickp13
