Gold star: A.J. Jones. The Florida linebacker went from unsung hero to household name with his performance against Georgia. He seemed to be involved in every big play and had two interceptions and a sack.
Silver star: Montario Hardesty. The Tennessee tailback was the difference (along with South Carolina’s fumbles), scoring a pair of touchdowns in the Vols’ win over South Carolina.
Bronze star: Vandy’s offense. The Commodores finally showed some life on that side of the ball. Unfortunately, the defense failed to show up in a loss to Georgia Tech.
No star: Those Tennessee jerseys. If they had gone all black, The Rewind could have lived with it. But that was hard to watch. Ugly with no alibi.
