Take a look at what we’re vibing on in the SEC, as we recount each team’s season to date in the form of gifs.
We here at Campus Insiders love to use gifs to describe how we feel at any particular moment. The right gif at the right time can bring humor to the day. It can ease the pain as we all bang our heads against the desk because some Power Five team has decided to play Northwestern East Louisiana State Tech and we’re forced by our unforgiving führer of a boss to do research on a team that we have no idea about, wondering why a school would schedule such a lousy opponent, all while fully realizing that we get paid to write about college football for a living and truly shouldn’t complain.
Wait, where was I?
Oh, right. Gifs. Gifs are awesome.
Other than gifs, I’ve been vibing on the kindness of my coworker, Sam Falcone, who is always happy to get me a Pepsi from the vending machine, watching October playoff baseball, and reminding everyone that candy corn is by far the worst food to ever be invented.

Now with Ed “Where’s The Weight Room?” Orgeron in charge, the Tigers are reenergized.

During all of it, Jim McElwain remains as goofy as ever.
The Bulldogs offseason was a little controversial, but Dan Mullen remained optimistic.
A loss to South Alabama got the season off to a rough start.
Life after Dak Prescott has been a bit rough for the Bulldogs, it is safe to say.
The season almost started off as a disaster, but the Volunteers escaped an upset bid by Appalachian State.
Then a Hail Mary to beat Georgia seemed to make Tennessee a team of destiny.
Two straight losses followed, and Butch Jones must now right the ship in Knoxville.
After starting 1-2 with an offense nowhere to be seen, Auburn fans were broken.
So what would Gus Malzahn do with everything on the line?
He reliquished play-calling duties, and now the Tigers are on a roll!

A win against UNC started the Kirby Smart era with a bang.
Losses to Ole Miss, Tennessee, and (ouch) Vanderbilt have taken some of the bloom off of the season.
Hugh Freeze accepted his role as a bad boy entering the season.
The first half of games has had Rebels fans like …
… while the second half has been a different story.
Barry Odom took over the reins from Gary Pinkel, as SEC fans all asked the same question.
A tough loss at West Virginia opened Odom’s time as head coach.
Odom has a rough job ahead of him to get Missouri back to being a SEC contender.
Bret Bielema entered the season with all the confidence in the world.
Losses to Texas A&M and Alabama set the Hogs back.
But a huge win against Ole Miss has the Razorbacks back in the picture.
The offense has been unbearable to watch.
Vanderbilt fans have been searching for other things to occupy their time.
