WHOA, WHOA, WHOA!

Let's not get crazy now. Let's get one thing straight. The top SEC teams are not afraid to play USC, they are afraid to play outside the South against quality opponents.

Bottom line is you are going to have SEC honks on this board reiterating the same tired garbage of how tough the SEC is and even list teams like Tennessee, Georgia, and Auburn as good teams, when they are not all that strong (UT is horrible). Heck, even Bama got rolled, not just beaten, but humiliated against Utah. They will always say how much better the SEC is and call conferences like the Big XII and Pac-10, what was it, "lesser conferences?"

You get dudes that are Vandy, Kentucky, Arkansas fans that need that conference affiliation to make their team somehow validated. IMO, here is a breakdown of the SEC.

Bama- overrated and got whipped versus Utah, a team that needed 9 points or so in the last 2 mins to beat Oregon State.
Tennessee- tough? Are you kidding me? They lost at home to fUCLA? In fact, they lost 2 years in a row to a weak Pac-10 team. They are not tough or good.
Auburn- Is that the team that scores, what 5 points in victory. They had some tough teams in the past, but like another equal SEC team, got ran over against USC. Man, they played horrible OOC teams this year, so now they are somehow tough. Heck, last year they had a losing record.
Georgia- Oh, Georgia. Is that the same team that hasn't come out of the South for like 600 years? Oh, yes, they beat Arizona State 2 years in a row. Who hasn't beaten ASU? Plus, they nearly lost this year and needed a last second field goal...at home. They have no defense and an average offense.
Ole Miss- Well, the pompous Grove is upset that they got beaten. However, most of the world outside of Oxford knew they were overrated. They are the epitome of an overrated SEC team.
Florida- hands down they are good. You can't argue with that.
LSU- Jury is still out, but I think they are good.

the rest of the SEC- weak, lame, bad, not even in the conversation.

Here is a link that argues the Pac-10 vs. SEC.

Pac-10 vs. SEC leans toward the West Coast : Lindys Sports

Based on my incredible inference skills and judging by the 10,000 year history of the SEC shelling up in their SEC cave during their OOC schedule, I'm going to infer that the top SEC teams do not want to play USC. Kudos for Tenessee and Georgia for putting Oregon on their schedule (home-away series in the future), because they will lose.

Not anymore with Malzahn running that offense, only a matter of time before he gets a good shot a HC job. Malzahn is an offensive genius.

Chizik may have found his spot. I think him and Malzahn could do some damage in the SEC within the next few years.


That being said, I'm picking Arky to upset them today.

Do you guys ever notice how much ESPN analysts just don't know what the heck they are talking about?

Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Sam Bradford to start Saturday against Baylor Bears - ESPN (48 sec mark)

ESPN CFB analyst Robert Smith thinks today will be a big day for Robert Griffin III to get on the national stage in Baylors game against OU. Apparently RS didn't get the message last week that RGIII is out for the season with a torn ACL.

Experts my ass!! What a Moran!!!

Yeah, they are scoring more, but I still do not think they are good. Who have they played, WVU and Tenn?

Auburn was supposed to do damage the last million years. I'll believe when I see it.

Nice. That one should be a shootout. Fun to watch.

That's the game I have in my 11:00 slot.

Penn State was either over ranked or overwhelmed...LOL....But you now are ahead in the polls....but also may be over rated too.

How 'bout them Hogs!?! I am glad Auburn didn't wake up until noon, because they looked pretty good in the third quarter.
