Have they mentioned who will televise the A&M/LSU Turkey Night game next year? If it's CBS then I have no further questions. If it is ESPN, I have to state/ask the following:
I have never been a conspiracy/insert name hates LSU/fire Alleva kind of guy. However, having said that and assuming it...

If SEC goes to 14 teams:
Three common opponents every year, enabling rivalres to stay intact
Other ten rotate 5 and 5 every two years
Top two play in SEC title game
Stay with 8 games, which still allows for marquee OOC matchups
Get the true top 2 teams playing...

I know the Rose Bowl must take the highest ranked Non-BCS team if they lose one of their locked in teams to the BCS title game. But if TCU is the highest ranked non-BCS team and THEY end up in the title game too...ex. Oregon vs TCU...is the Rose still obligated to take the next highest Non-BCS team...

Was something wrong with the instant replay besides right at the end of the game?
Tolliver's catch wasn't worth a challenge because he didn't gain enough yards to warrant it, but there should have been a booth review at least. Hell, he took 4 steps with the ball and it got jarred loose only when...

I've been playing golf for about 12 years, but watching the AT&T at Aronimink last week, plus Riviera, Westchester, Colonial and a few others in the past, I keep hearing the term tossed around..."old style course."

Did CBS replay that more than once? Not that I'm complaining, but I thought it was at least reviewable.

Sorry if it's been asked...my understanding was that every SEC conference game AND every SEC home non-conference game not on the network package (assume that means CBS) would be on the ESPN family of networks. Why then, are the Miss St-Auburn game and Miss St-Vandy games being shown on Fox Sports N...

Why is that play any different from roughing the kicker? The kick is away when the punter is hit, yet the offensive team gets to keep possession. Both are personal fouls, and imo the Harrison play is ten times worse than most roughing the kicker plays where guys just get too close to the kicker wh...

This season should be a lesson. Obviously we have other serious issues to worry about but hypothetically speaking, do the schedule defenders realize that if we had won the SEC championship at 12-1, we would have virtually no shot at the title game with the OOC teams we played?

I think 99% of our fans would agree the defensive scheme sucks and has to be changed. That said, even with the shitty scheme, I think it would be less of an issue if we would just execute on the plays where our guys actually were in the right place.
