Default Re: The SEC

Thing is, this happens every year in every conference...a top tier team stumbles, and some team that's usually a bottom feeder steps up to fill the void. It usually doesn't last either...

In the Big Ten Northwestern has had a few good years, Minnesota, Iowa, Purdue all come to mind. It's all cyclical...

It makes every season interesting. I'm all for a bottom feeder going worst to first. It's a great story.

Um, no. They're in first place in the East right now. That's not the same as being the best team. They haven't played Georgia or Florida yet, and they don't have to play LSU this year. They're respectable--probably a middle of the pack team.

Of course, they could be the mighty PAC-10, which can't figure out how to win a game against the Mountain West

ha ha ha ha!

It isn't that I don't like the SEC, its simply that I don't recognize them as that much better than any other conference.

Florida lost at home to Ole Miss
Tennessee can't get out of its own way
LSU has the weakest Out of Conference schedule in all Div I football
Miss State hasn't been good for a long time
South Carolina continues to under acheive
Auburn lost at Vandy and has 2 losses, they are done.
Bama is a suprise. Clap Clap
Arkansas is way down.
Ole Miss is Ole Miss
Georgia Choked...again.
Kentucky is an average team.
and Vandy...wow.

So it needs to be recognized that the SEC is just like all the other conferences with its ups and downs and this year, is not the best conference in Div I football.

You forgot that Alabama only beat a pathetic Kentucky team by 7 points this week. How they are ranked at #2 is beyond me.

No worries though, Alabama will lose at least two games in conference. But of course thats only because the SEC is the best conf in football.....right?

this is exactly why i think when they do start a playoff system, there should be a representative from each conference.....then not only would there be conference rivalries, but more out of conference rivalries would develope.....

I agree, top teams from each BCS Conference, gives you 6 teams, then 2 at large bids.

8 team playoff, works it all out on the field.

Bama was due for a little letdown after the big win over UGA the week before. Plus, UK is a really good team defensively. This Alabama team reminds me of the 1992 team. Hot one week, luke warm the next week, but they won every game and then smashed a heavily favored Miami team in the Sugar Bowl for the national title.

The Big XII is overrated. Texas Tech and Oklahoma State are pretenders as usual. Texas or Oklahoma will cancel one or the other out this weekend. Missouri will probably lose in Austin.

Yeah its seems everybody has already forgotton how the dawgs dismantled okahoma state at home last year, how west virginia destroyed oklahoma last year or how boise beat them and how USC destroyed them in the NCG.

the SEC always beats itself up during the conference games. But we play pretty well in the NCG and thats what counts.
