The day that UGA doesn’t care about playing in the Sugar Bowl is the day they need to pull the plug on football...

SEC is a one horse conference. Bama and the rest.

It's the weirdest thing, fans of other SEC teams will seemingly root for other teams in their conference so they can pound their chests and shout that the SEC is the best conference in college football.

Apart from the odd additions of Rutgers and Maryland, the Big Ten is a solid conference who is smart and play a 9 game conference schedule.

Nine of the last 12 national championships have been won by an SEC team. That seems like pretty convincing proof.

I watched that game. Georgia definitely didn't show up. It happens all the time in all these meaningless bowl games, especially now that you have players sitting out. Maybe with everything that has happened this year and all the complaining we will get the playoff expanded.

That is pretty laughable. The SEC consistently has a number of the top teams in the nation. At some point, the playoff will be expanded. Everyone will then be complaining because after the first round, the remaining teams in the playoff will be a number of SEC teams and the championship game will come down to either two SEC teams or an SEC team and Clemson or Ohio State almost every year. Sure you will have someone else slip in there every once in a while but for the foreseeable future that is what you will get. I can't wait to hear all the bitching about that when we finally get a real playoff.

Laughable?
The vaunted SEC has a weak bowl record these past two years. They just went 1-3 against the Big12, a middling conference.

Don’t believe the ESPN hype. Texas fans know the Horns put that bs to rest against USC in the 2006 Rose Bowl.

The SEC needs to stop scheduling the FCS patsies and play more than 8 conference games.
Even A&M and Missouri, both mid tier teams in the Big12, are still in the same position in the SEC.

Yes, an 8 team playoff should start ASAP. This 4 team thing is a joke.

One trick pony. This would be like the Knicks pounding their chest based on what Lebron and the Cavs did in the Finals.

I watched the game too and Georgia was clearly the inferior team. It's a good thing the games are played on the field rather than your imagination.

The point is that they're not really "top" teams. If they were so great, then they'd be able to beat these teams from other conferences.

ESPN owns the SEC network and therefore will over hype the conference to generate ratings. They do the same thing with the NBA - they have a huge TV contract with the NBA and will over hype and over examine that league.

Can we please get an expanded playoff now? lol I don't know that it will matter much though, two or three SEC teams will end up in the final four and all the complaining will continue.

I just looked at next years Texas schedule and they are playing LSU in their second game on September 7. That will be an interesting game to watch.

Next year Oklahoma has one, maybe two games worth even playing on their schedule. They play Texas and they also play West Virginia and Iowa State who neither are much competition. The rest of their schedule is full of cupcake games so they should just cruise right through their schedule with at most one loss.

Apparently there are about 13 cupcakes in the SEC, two middling teams (GA & LSU), and Bama at the top.
