In as much as Week 5 of the 2012 college football season was a weekend without a defense, Week 6 was the weekend that the mighty and powerful fell from grace.
Stocks and bonds for LSU, Florida State, Georgia and Texas all plummeted on Saturday which allowed for the flourishing fortunes of South Carolina, Florida, West Virginia and even the unlikely commodity of NC State.
So, what does all the movement up and down the charts of destiny mean?
Well if nothing else Week 6 spurred one of the most provocative and extensive Studs and Duds lists of the season, a register we’re pleased to present here for your pleasure.
It serves as both a glowing tribute and painful record of the individual performances that drove the bus that was a wild, wonderful sixth stanza of the 2012 season.
