Talk To Your Kids About the SEC Myth

Recommended Posts

The Gipper    1,164

Does Gipper still think LSU is the "class of the SEC" or whatever? That was funny. I still think, as I said, that Ohio State "limps" to 12-0. I said they either choke in the B1G championship game or lose in the semis. Even with their opponent appearing to be a very ugly Iowa team, I still feel decent about it. Not that I'm happy about it. Ohio State is one of my favorite teams.

I thought they were, yes. Clearly they are not. I think the SEC is very much overrated this year.

Alabama may be the best in that conference, but like I said, Florida may have something to say about it.

But, yes, OSU has rather been sleepwalking through the season. They need to wake up this week.

Michigan St. can beat them. (as evidenced by the Big Ten title game 2 years ago)

But I will take an ugly 10-0 Iowa over an ugly 9-1 team.

Will you take an ugly 10-0 Houston over 9-1 Alabama now? Because the committee would disagree.

 

I predict it won't be a game against Florida. They don't pass much and LSU learned you can't run against Alabama.

I don't know how 10-0 is ugly. Would anyone predict Houston to win that game? Unlikely. Though I would like to see it played.

Alabama has had a weakness against good passing spread offenses.

 

As for one loss teams......Alabama's one loss is worse than say Michigan State. MSU lost on a bad call.

Florida lost to LSU.....which is still a "better loss" than losing to Ole Miss. That game will probably play out.

Oklahoma/TCU/Baylor/OK St. should play out. (But what if they all end up with one loss? They all stay home?)

You don't know how 10-0 is ugly? You're the one that said it was for Iowa. I was just copying what you said, with different variables.

 

You look at numbers too much. Turn on the tape (or the news if you weren't aware of the Florida thing). Bama would prison rape U of freaking H. I can't believe we're even discussing this.

Well, I was just copying what someone else said.

We don't get the Bama games here that much....only the big ones like LSU. Bama taking on the weak sisters of the SEC is just not that big of a TV draw here. This is Big Ten country, we get those games.

Really, then why didn't they prison rape Ole Miss who plays somewhat of a spread I believe.

Lets put it this way.....even if they could do what you said, I would like to see that matchup.

Actually the SEC on CBS is a national broadcast. They were on it last week in a top 20 matchup which they won by 3+ touchdowns. They were also on it against A&M about a month ago. Both of those in addition to the LSU game. I believe they've been on it one or two other times this year as well. You don't see them because you don't want to see them. And that's fine, no one's putting a gun to your head to make you watch them, I just don't understand why you then come here and opine about them so strongly.

 

My high school runs a spread. I suppose that means it'd be interesting to watch them play Bama too?

 

All that said, Clemson-Bama should be an interesting game.

Like I said, I don't bother to watch them against the weak sisters of the SEC....and if you think Miss. St. is top 20, you are smoking some of that high cotton they grow in Texas. I am watching another, different better game probably.

And my opinion is based on this: They lost to a now clearly mediocre Ole Miss. An Ole Miss team that played the likes of Tenn Martin, Fresno and New Mex St.....that they beat, plus Memphis who the lost to.

And Bama's big win against LSU has to be put in perspective: Arkansas beat LSU too.

I am saying that other one loss teams have really done better.

Clearly Notre Dame has a "better" loss.....two points on the road to Clemson.

And other one loss teams also had "better" losses.

If it ever happens.

Miss State is absolutely top 20. Pretty solid football team.

 

I can't say it any more clearly. They're (Alabama) rated so highly because of the eye test. If you don't watch them (by your own admission) then it's difficult to discuss.

Really? Show me on this list where they made the Top 20.....or the Top 25:

or here

My eyes saw them get handled by Ole Miss on their home field. Their defense did look good in handling Fournette though. So its a 50/50 proposition on the eye test.

So is Arkansas right here right now.. NOBODY in the Big 10 or anywhere near the top 4 wants to play Arkansas right now..

 

I'm a Gator fan and I don't want to see those fuckers on my schedule between now and August 2016..

No, they will leave it to a MAC team to handle Arkansas.

Bama isn't in yet......they still have to take on Auburn....and mighty Charleston Southern (not that losing to them would affect their SECW chances)

Gipper has a habit of talking about something like he's an expert without knowing much about it. This wouldn't be the first example.

 

 

I can tell you the B1G definitely does not want to be the SEC though. Obviously not academically, not at all. Sure the football success would be nice, but through other means than how the SEC got it.

On the rare occasion....but then on most occasins I talk about things that I know about that all y'all have no clue about.

Its the other way around.

The Big Ten has the money and the teams in the largest markets in the USA....New York, Chicago, Philly, Washington/Baltimore., Detroit....CLeve/Columbus/Cincy....Twin Cities.

The SEC has one big market: Atlanta.

So, the Big Ten has the money and the demographics. And the Big Ten has the National Championship......and it has teams every bit as good as any of the teams in the SEC.

And that is just football. Basketball wise, the SEC has Kentucky and then nada. The Big Ten has half a dozen major basketball programs.

The next time an SEC school comes north of Lexington to play, let us know.

 

Even the big bowl games are played in the south.

Have you seen Arkansas play lately? or at all? They are playing some of the best ball in the country right now.. They possess the largest O line in football, be it college or the NFL.

 

The next time an SEC school comes north of Lexington to play, let us know.

 

Why the fuck should they? Given the taxing SEC schedule.. Seriously??

 

Even the big bowl games are played in the south.

 

Have you ever given a second's thought as to why that is? facepalm.gif

Browns149, LSU went to the Carrier Dome. Good job knowing the facts though.

 

Gipper, having the largest markets doesn't mean the people there actually watch CFB. The SEC has the largest TV contract both in total and in per school, I believe. So all those markets are fairly worthless in comparison.

Yeah it would have been much manlier to play outside in New York in September. Oh, what horrid conditions could arise.

I am not fighting either way. But just stating that it is an indoor stadium. It just reconfirms what some people here are saying.

 

Also, you can get shit weather conditions in northern NY starting in September. Unfortunately, I have had to experience it.
