There seemed to be some confusion in one of the other threads about which sports were officially sponsored by the SEC. I personally think that for the conference to award a trophy for a sport, all league members need to be in full agreement to compete in it…however, 12 of the 14 SEC members do not ...View Topic - Replies (8)

Someone had a thread yesterday about the winning percentage of the SEC's "Big 6." Well, I got to thinking. If the Big 6 had their own division in the conference...the teams listed below would be the champs since the SEC expanded. Not sure if co-champs should be allowed here, especially if the co-...View Topic - Replies (0)

After Protestants won 21 straight governors' races in Louisiana between 1888 and 1967--even while the state's population was half Catholic--this year's vote will mark the 8th time in the last 12 elections with a Catholic prevailing. Looks like Louisiana's Southern Baptists are moderating their stan...

Does having the so-called "Big Six" around breed divisiveness within our conference? Perhaps it is time to either de-emphasize the Big Six or simply open it up to other possible members. At present, to be a member, you need: a) at least 6 SEC division titles (note: Arkansas is currently next in...View Topic - Replies (33)
