It's interesting because Kirk Herbstreit (who, IMO, goes way TOO far out of his way to try and be unbiased towards the Big Ten) has siad some stuff about the Big Ten and SEC lately, and he was right on.

What did he say? That it's all cyclical (where have we heard that before "cough from me cough") and the SEC has been up lately. He also called bullshit on the SEC ignorance that the best Big Ten team would finish 5th in the SEC. OSU is loaded at talent this year, and would cause fits for EVERY SEC team they'd face.

I was glad to see him stick up for his conference for a change...he's become to meely-mouthed trying to appease the masses...

I'm so tired of the SEC not playing tough out of conference games and getting all their bowl games in their own back yard.

Looking foward to that Auburn at WVU game. Big East, only conference with a winning record against the Sec.

They are getting better about it. Kicking and screaming, but they are.

I wonder what happens if WVU beats up Auburn and ASU beats Georgia? That doesn't bode well for continued ooc games for the SEC...but the true measure of any conference IS it's record against other conferences.

In my book, EVERY perennial power team's motto should be (like my Bucks) "Any team, anywhere, any time".

Is South Carolina going to beat NC State or do you have an excuse for that one lined up as well?
By most accounts this is supposed to be Clemson's year from a talent standpoint and because the ACC has been down as of late. I think the key matchup to the Alabama/Clemson game will be Clemson's offensive line versus Alabama's defensive front seven; both of these units face some big question marks. Alabama's offense matches up really well against Clemson's defense. It could be a high scoring game. I won't be surprised to see Alabama win, but Clemson probably should be the slight favorite.

I think South Carolina will bomb NC State on Thursday night.

Wow - Michigan is only a 3.5 point favorite over Utah this weekend and the game is in the big house.

I think USC will roll over NCS. i am stoked that football season has arrived.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

The beauty of OSU football is that (if you're a power) we'll do a home and home with you, so that it's not just a, "come to the Shoe or we won't play you" scenario.

For the smaller schools (like Youngstown, MAC teams, etc...) it's about giving other teams a chance at a bigger pot of money and their players a chance to play in the spotlight.

Credit to Florida for finally putting Miami back on their schedule and having Fla State on their as well. We finally get the Florida Cup back in play this season.

I want SEC Schools to travel to the North more. I love that Auburn is playing At West Virginia. Tennessee did play a heck of game back when they won the national title up in Syracuse, great game, recommend it if you catch it on Classic or something. I'm tired of the "our conference is so tough" crap. Go play at someone else's house and win. That is why we have more than 1 Conference. I want to see LSU above the northern border of Arkansas. They need to play at Oregon, Like Oklahoma does, or at Michigan, or at Boston College. Spice it up, get out of the south and bring your "Challenge" on the Road.
