Georgia is like Florida's Tennessee. Spurrier has their number just like Florida owned Tennessee when he was a Gator.

I've only witnessed that from SEC fans. Second of all, last year auburn lost to Florida st. And Alabama(the gold standard of the sec) got their asses handed to them by Oklahoma in the sugar bowl. Third when you let teams like texas a&m and Missouri, two teams who were mediocre at best in the big 12, come in and tear it up in your supposedly elite conference and have success, then yes your overrated.
Texas a&m under sumlin is a totally different animal than when they was in the big 12 under sherman as said by Bob stoopes himself when a&m beat down Oklahoma two years ago. Sumlin bought a whole new coaching staff in with him during a&m's sec debut. The athletic director was new too. The big 12 a&m is long gone.

Yep. TAMU would pretty much have their way with any Big12 team with the exception of Oklahoma. Texas fans especially should get down on their knees and thank the football gods that they no longer have to play the Aggies. The Sack of Carthage would look like a Bible study in comparison to what would happen if those two teams played this year.

Baylor too. I think Baylor might win the big 12 this year

It's all reciprocal. All the traditonal powers go through periods when they're up and then they go through a period when they're down. Texas just happens to be in a down cycle.
If you went to Texas, did you take any English classes?

One = 1 (as in the number)
Won = the past tense of winning

Reciprocal? Perhaps you mean cyclical. Reciprocal means mutual.

Since you want to focus on right now - there are eight SEC teams in the AP top 25 and five in the top 10. There are the same eight in the ESPN power rankings though the positions are a bit different.

The season is still young and we will probably see some big changes in the next month as the cream puff portion of the schedule winds down.

BC ran for 452 yards while holding the Trojans to just 20 rushing. Once again my long time betting rule of never giving points on the road holds true.

We have a playoff now rankings are irrelevant. Only one team wins a championship, I don't care about the rest of the overrated SEC. See Tenn agiasnt Oklahoma last saturday.

Lol, come back and talk to me when they Aggies win a national championship. Texas is down right now, beacuse Mack Brown put it on cruise control the last five years and let the programs fall apart. But anybody who thinks we're going to stay that way is moron. All the loser schools like A&M, Baylor, Tech who haven't won anything of significance the last 75 years better have their fun while they can, because when Texas comes back(and we WILL come back, we always do) its back to being irrelevant for the schools in this state.
