Given the way you are defending it, I wonder if you actually watched the Alabama game yesterday. Drinking the SEC koolaid is an obstacle to being a fan, not a prerequisite. I love it when the truth makes people angry.

I'm not angry, why should I be?. I'm just calling you out on your idiotic assumptions.
The sad thing is that SEC fans don't hate other conferences, yet fans other conferences have blind hatred for us.

BTW I was actually at the game yesterday.

SEC may have the strongest teams, but the strength of schedule argument goes out the window when you schedule a de facto bye week every 3 weeks.

1) It's NOT in the middle of conference play, its at the end. Each team only has one conference game left.

2) I challenge you to name another team in the country with a schedule as strong as the SEC teams? Their in conference schedule is brutal first of all... Then LSU played Oregon and West Virginia out of conference (one neutral and one away). Bama played Penn State on the road. Auburn played Clemson on the road. Arkansas Played TAMU in TEXAS! Georgia played Boise State and plays Georgia Tech. South Carolina plays Clemson. Florida plays Florida State!

Spare us on how weak their schedules are... Stop going by a computer program that was written by a human and just use your common sense.

3) As far as the I-AA teams... its obvious the SEC has an agreement with the Southern Conference. All of the SEC non conference games yesterday were with that conference. Which is considered the SEC of I-AA...

Their conference games are scrimmages.

Oregon played....Missouri St. What do you call that? (We won't talk about their first game).

Oklahoma played....Ball St. In basketball? Sure, that's competition. In football? Not so much.

Clemson played Troy and they also played (and barely survived) Wofford. LOL!

I agree, it was unimpressive, but so were all the schools from the Big 12, ACC, Big 10, and Pac 12 who feasted on cupcakes within their conference all season long.

And don't worry, SEC teams are saving the real butt kickings for another hapless BCS opponent.

I understand that you're upset. I know that it must be frustrating to watch really good flag football teams from the Pac 12 get pounded once they face a tough SEC team. Those southern boys, though...lemme tell ya, once they throw on the pads, lace up the cleats, put in their mouthpieces, and strap on the helmets, it's a whole 'nother game, podnuh.

Oklahoma has one the toughest schedules in FBS.
