| SEC Rant|| A case study for division realignment - TheDude321 on 7/28/14 at 4:04 am|
This thread is a spin-off of the "Why is Missouri in the SEC East?" thread. Someone in that thread ("IAmReality") wrote that, in the SEC:
[quote]Divisions are mostly geographic but also balanced for competition.[/quote]
My question: how exactly are the SEC's divisions "balanced for competition?...
| SEC Rant|| Evolution of the so-called "Big 6" - TheDude321 on 7/11/14 at 12:00 pm|
Supposedly, there are six teams in the SEC that have dominated the conference in football. Well, listed below are the first six teams to win an SEC football title--the charter members of the "Big 6," if you will.:bow:
Alabama (1933, '34, '37)
Tulane (1934, '39)
LSU (1935, '36)

Okay, I went over literally [i]every[/i] possible scenario, and, believe me, this is the [i]only[/i] way to keep all SEC football a) in-state rivalries, b) season finales, and c) “named” mid-season rivalry games in tact without having to keep the current permanent cross-divisional opponent system (s...
| SEC Rant|| North Alabama is switching allegiance to Auburn - TheDude321 on 4/30/14 at 10:01 am|
I live in the Yellowhammer State, and it has always seemed like the northern part of the state has been loyal to the Crimson Tide. According to this map, however, Auburn fans have recently overrun it (or just stuffed the website's ballot box? :confused:): [img]http://commoncensus.org/maps/ncaaf_64...

I live in North Alabama, where the Tenessee and Auburn fans come out of the woodwork and mock Bama for losing. We all need to come together to get the SEC back on track for this bowl season! Go Mizzou, go Vandy, and go Barn!!!
So let's get on with it! S-E-C, S-E-C, S-E-C!!!

SIAP, but I couldn't find a thread already on this. Any way, it's Saints-Falcons week once again, so it's worth a mention. "Likes" on Facebook prove that, win or lose, the Saints already own Dixie. The best thing about this map, is that it was made after last season, when the Saints lost "bandwag...

I remember Curley Hallman (LSU) and Terry Bowden (Auburn) wearing horizontal-striped ties on game day back in the early 1990s, but it seems like they were the last to do it. What other SEC coaches have worn ties since then?...

With all the talk about Finebaum declaring the Bama-A&M series as the SEC’s new best rivalry, I just wanted to take a trip down memory lane to see what the “old” best rivalries used to be in the SEC (before the Bama-A&M game took it). There are a lot of possible ways to determine college football’s...

I'm tired of everyone writing on the SECRant that the SEC has ruled college football over the past 7 years. What's more interesting to note is that the SEC Western Division's best years took place before the division was even created...national titles were won every year by future SEC West teams du...

| SEC Rant|| Future SEC West - TheDude321 on 11/10/11 at 10:46 pm|
I'm not so sure that the push to put Missouri into the SEC Eastern Division should be entirely motivated by maintaining traditional rivalries. The SEC East is already leaning a bit on the weak side, as evidenced by the last 4 out of 5 teams listed on the all-time winning percentage chart below. The ...

I think that it would ultimately be far more heal...

Anyone know if there is a place that sells "LSU Bengal Tigers" caps like the one Charlie McClendon is wearing in the photo below (in some stadium that doesn't look like Tiger Stadium)? I remember that Jerry Stovall used to sometimes wear a hat like that when he was LSU's coach as well.

I know that in around 1998-99 Steve Spurrier threatened to not let LSU wear white jerseys at home, but that was after Tyler's tenure (exc...
