Well, I personally like to see as many Sec teams as possible in the top 25 but, if one has to bite the dust I would rather it be Auburn.

Roll Tide! Arkansas has played well all season, I am not sure why Ga performed so poorly today against TN.

There are my 3 upsets I got this week. (with ranked teams involved)

College football was much better when people followed and supported their favorite team, this insane conference boosting really takes away from the sport.

I do follow and support my own team. But, when people start questioning the strength of a conference and the teams they play, you have a tendency to want to see your conference do well. "Strength of Schedule".. you know.

Yes I understand that strength of schedule is part of it, but it's become more conference focused everywhere in recent years.

Yeah! Roll Tide... again I breath a sign of relief but, not until the end of the game. I am actually worried about South Carolina.

I don't think we dominated enough to replace Texas as number 2.... I am awaiting the afternoon for some great football- I know you hate it it Joe P, but geaux Tigers... I actually attended LSU so, I have good reason to root for them.. in addition to Alabama.

No, its mainly the SEC

They are the only conference that chants it. SEC! SEC! SEC!

gimme a break.

that ****s lame as ****.

I don't give a crap about the Big12. I root for OU. Heck, I'd be happy to see OSU and UT lose every game, wouldn't bother me one bit.

OK, JoeP, let me also say that when I moved up north before the days of ESPN - and cable, I don't want to date myself, b ut, I also rooted for the Nittany Lions. I met Joe P at a party and he spoke so highly of Ala, that I loved him and started rooting for his team defacto.
