With one national title in the last 40 years you are really grasping going to all time record.

That is like Ohio State fan saying they have 7 national championships when they were getting beat down by the SEC in the BCS. 6 of them were 40+ years ago.

The only SEC teams with 2 wins in the BCS era for national titles are LSU and Florida... does that mean they are more dominant than Michigan and Texas, the most winningest teams in college football?

In the BCS era that answer would be yes. Michigan has yet to win a BCS title and Texas hasn't been relevant in two seasons.

Two seasons? So what? So I guess you think Florida hasn't been relevant either since they have sucked for 2 seasons...

You are mod:edit if you think Texas hasn't been relevant in the BCS era. mod:edit

I guess you must believe Alabama hasn't been relevant in the BCS era either-- actually, that might be closer to the truth (compare for yourself):

Texas Record in BCS era: 140 wins, 39 losses (won Rose Bowl, won Fiesta Bowl, won BCS National Championship Game)

Alabama Record in BCS era: 117 wins, 60 losses (won BCS National Championship game)... that is counting the wins the NCAA made them vacate. If you ignore those wins, your record is even worse.

You are a moron if you think Texas hasn't been relevant in the BCS era. Did you start watching football 2 years ago or something?

I guess you must believe Alabama hasn't been relevant in the BCS era either-- actually, that might be closer to the truth (compare for yourself):

Texas Record in BCS era: 140 wins, 39 losses (won Rose Bowl, won Fiesta Bowl, won BCS National Championship Game)

Texas and UF are at the same point of being down right now really. Both have been relevant but the difference is UF has 3 national titles in the last 15 years while Texas has 1 in the last 40.

Ohio State probably has a great BCS era overall record but they have been a joke when they play real teams.

Yeah two seasons, because who cares what you did in 2005. It all about what have you done for me lately. The worst OU team in recent memory blew you guys out...LOL, and don't forget losing to Baylor.

The '05 and '09 OU teams were worse, but I would say this has probably been the most overrated OU team in recent years.

2 seasons is your measuring stick huh?

Typical, fair weather Alabama fan...

But that still doesn't equate to any kind of superiority over the SEC, especially when you 0-1 vs the SEC in the BCS title game.
The only reason it's 0-1 instead of 1-0 is because of the fluke play (a clean hit) that took out McCoy in the first drive.

As it was, throwing the untested freshman in there that game was a near thing until the last two back to back turnovers in the final minutes.

Bama won and was the better team that day, but it was by chance....nothing more.

Texas would have definitely won that day if McCoy is in the game. Bad deal for a great kid....and a Horn win would have gone a long way in shutting up all these SEC fans coming out of the woodwork these last couple of years talking about how their conference has always been king.
