SEC is going south in the bowls...

2-3 I believe. Not awful not great. Actually about normal and probably better if you include the national title. Only game that was an upset loss was LSU. Kentucky and Tennessee were bigtime dogs.
They lost, but I thought Northwestern looked pretty good against Auburn. Five Interceptions, a Blocked Extra-Point, and two missed field goals will usually kill your chance to win, and it did for the ‘Cats. But the Big Ten has looked respectable, 2-2.
On the other hand, most of the SEC games are still ahead, such as Florida, South Carolina, Arkansas, Ole Miss, and Alabama.
Tide doesn’t play until next week.
Tonight’s game will be interesting, all I have heard about is Meyer’s heart.
Living in the South, I have seen many fans who think that the SEC deserves to be proclaimed the best simple because it’s the SEC. When Utah beat Alabama last year, it wasn’t because Utah was good, it was because Alabama didn’t give a damn about the game, otherwise, Utah would have been creamed. Personally, I find that to be a crock of $hit.
I don’t like rooting for the University of Utah, but when they played Alabama, an SEC team, I acted like the U was my favorite team.
SEC was dowen a bit from especially 2007 and 2008 when they were clarly dominant. ANd surprise surprise the Big Ten is 2-2 and could be 3-2 of OSU can hold on here.
Yes SEC fans will always have a ready excuse for any game they lose.
That’s because the SEC is better than all the other conferences.
Go Big Ten. NU put up a valiant effort and shot themselves in the foot, but this Wildcat was shocked by how well NU played.
He has exhausted Saban’s players and now the only sure thing for olde smily is the rent a wins and the down trodden within the SEC on his schedule.
>>> LSU is loaded with talent, but they will never be more than a 8-4 or 9-3 team with Miles. <<<
OTHER THAN THAT NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP UNDER MILES ... ;)
Yeah, other than that National Championship he had with LSU two years ago.........he’s awful...LOL
At least my Dawgs won.
Texas A&M 20
“Only game that was an upset loss was LSU”
LSU is ranked 107th in total offense...they shouldn’t have been in this bowl in the first place...LSU was ranked WAY too high this year.
Tennesse had the most eractic QB in football...when he is hot, which is rare, they do well...when he is not, they don’t have a chance...like last night.
Tennessee fans have dubbed Crompton “In-Crompetent”
Don’t worry, Florida will score an easy win against a way-overmatched Cincinnati tonight.
“Personally, I find that to be a crock of $hit”
You can think that...it isn’t true, but you can think it.
Teams who come within a breath of the big game and lose, have a long history of losing their bowl games...two years ago, Florida lost the SEC championship game after being # 1...they went on to lose big to a Michigan team that had just fired their coach because they had a lousy season.
Texas Tech last year had a shot at the big game...lost a close one to OU and went on to get clobbered by Ole Miss in the bowl game.
“LSU lost because of Miles. He is a few fries short of a Happy Meal. LSU is loaded with talent, but they will never be more than a 8-4 or 9-3 team with Miles.”
You are so right...Two years ago I heard some comentator say that Miles was an underacheiver...they had two loses that year, both of which they SHOULD have won with ease...they lucked up with a win over Floriday and then got a luck draw of Ohio State, who they killed...thus Lucky Les wins a national title and looks like a good coach...the luck is running out.
