You're REALLY reaching for it here.
An excuse, I mean.
If you believe for one second that the change in diet had no effect on OU's football team in 2008, then I don't know what to say. What else could explain a 27 point defeat? OU scored 60 points or more in 5 straight games!!! (including against the No.2 team in the country!!!). Do you think they were held to a season low point total because Florida was just that good? GTFOH!

Well in all fairness, I think they lost by 10. That game with OU v Florida was actually a pretty watchable game. I actually went into that one thinking OU had a chance to take it. I still slightly favored Florida, but I figured OU would hang around in that one. And they made a game of it.

True...and did so without Demarco Murray. It was a great game in Florida's backyard.

Yet another big factor SEC Homers don't want to discuss.

POLLEN.

The South is full of pollen. It can take weeks to adjust to high pollen levels. Pollen can cause watery eyes and shortness of breath. SEC teams have a whole season to adjust to the pollen. Big 10 and Big 12 teams don't. When Oklahoma had to travel down to swampland to play the Gators, is it any surprise they lost? They couldn't even see the ball. The pollen was just that bad.

Well, admittedly, he is a Yankee!

Why would we expect him to have a sense of humor?

Whatever. Top 5 reasons the SEC wins.

1. Media Bias
2. Cuban Food
3. Pollen
4. South Beach
5. Demographic Shifts

I think you ignore the effect of scary mascots. Two sets of tigers, two sets of bulldogs, alligators, wildcats, even gamecocks. And just about every guy who is married or in a relationship learns to fear the Crimson Tide each month....

And to add to further SEC bias...

The SEC schools are HUGE compared to the Big 10 schools like Ohio State and Michigan. Florida has waaaay more alumni nationwide than Michigan. In fact, it's hard to find a Michigan alum outside of Michigan. There are certainly none in Florida. The fact that the SEC schools are larger and have bigger endowments than Big 10 schools makes it hard for the Big 10 schools to compete. SEC fans can afford to travel and they do travel. Michigan fans? Not so much. That's why the Sugar Bowl snubbed Michigan in favor of South Carolina. Damn SEC bias!
