South Carolina was a dismal program when they joined the SEC.. Now they are a top 10 program. The SEC has that type of affect. and it will happen faster with TAMU because they are in TX.

You can quote history all you want on what they did before but they are in the SEC now. And they are not Kentucky or Vandy. They have the school size and support to build a great football program. the SEC brand is what they needed to get over the hump. Its huge to kids with asperations to play in the NFL. And now they can compete with TX & OK in getting those kids... They didn't have much of a chance before.
Oh, so you think A&M will cherry pick the state and the other SEC schools won't take any aggy recruits? lol

Face it, we all know why the SEC wanted two mediocre programs like A&M and Mizzou - for punching bags, plus new TV markets and a pipeline into more of Texas recruiting.

How did the SEC move work out for Arky? lol

Last I checked they were a top 10 team? and they have won the west before. you're delusional...

Stop being salty... the SEC is better than the Big 12. Always has been and always will be.

Always
? = too strong on the language there, Mr. GE.

The SEC has always had Bama, but LSU is kinda a Johnny Come Lately in terms of tradition. Florida, TN, and GA have had historical success, but nowhere near the Big 3 of the Big 12 at its formation: Oklahoma, Nebraska, and Texas (in that order). Colorado was no slouch at the inception of the Big 12 either.

The SEC has had tremendous success the last several years, and it appears that no one will be able to stop LSU this year, but your claim was a tad overstated from a realistic historical perspective. Just pointing that out.

Carry on.

Trick Question: They will all suck.
You forgot Ole Miss. It isn't easy to recover from back-to-back losses to Vanderbilt.

SEC! SEC! SEC! SEC! SEC! SEC!


Delusional SEC fans are always the best.



Anyway Missery has 35 players from Texas on their roster, good luck with that in the future. And when you also add in the fact that they will now be playing in the (south) eastern part of the country and basically share the limelight with Clemson, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Florida, FSU, Miami, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia Tech & the other SEC schools.

Congratz Missery, at least you can chant SEC! SEC! SEC! SEC! SEC! SEC! now.

Ok.... I'll changed Always to 85% of the time!

The Big 12 was formed in '94...

The SEC leads the Big 12 in all-time head-to-head match-ups with a 26-18-0 (.591) record.

Over the past 14 years ('98 -'10) the SEC holds a 30-18-0 (.625) advantage.

Read more from original site: SEC vs Big 12 Football

In addition The SEC is 2-0 in BCS Championships against the Big 12. Big 12 has only won 2 BCS titles... The SEC has won 7...

I'm just stating facts!

So in almost 20 years Arky has won the west division of the SEC, but no championships....and they are now in the top 10?

Yeah, that sounds a lot better than what they accomplished in the old SWC.

Looks like the definition of "improvement". lol

What really helped Arkansas was Frank Broyles' retirement. I'm an alum and the conventional wisdom while I was there was that Broyles would eventually get rid of any coach whom he thought might have a chance of eclipsing his accomplishments. Not that there was much danger of that while I was there, during their first few years in the SEC...

Wasn't the year Arky won the West the same year that USC hung 70 on them?
