| SEC Rant|| Gary Danielson on Atlanta sports radio today - IAmReality on 5/30/14 at 2:27 pm|
The SEC is completely wide open this year.
Arkansas and Florida will be the two most improved teams.
Last year he predicted offenses would do great and defenses would struggle, due to all the experienced QB's and all the defensive talent the league had lost in the draft the year before and he ...
| SEC Rant|| What does Google suggestions have to say about your state/school? - IAmReality on 5/21/14 at 1:25 am|
I tried to specific the school whenever possible (aka UGA instead of Georgia) but for the most part had to use the State for the state schools.
Should give you an idea about the types of questions people are most commonly asking.
| SEC Rant|| Why is Auburn the only member of the "big 6" unable to sustain success? - IAmReality on 4/22/14 at 4:33 pm|
Auburn is a member of the "big 6" as they have won their share of SEC titles and even a recent national title. However they are the only program in the big 6 seemingly unable to sustain an elite level of success over a stretch of consecutive seasons. Auburn's MO seems to be to come out of nowhere to...

A recent Tosh commercial that's a parody of those Beats by Dre commercials with the athletes listening to "I'm the man"
Here's his latest Alabama shout out. In case you're wondering what's up Alabama references are a running gag on Tosh, as he is a big Dolphins fan and therefore hates Saban, he a...
| SEC Rant|| SEC West - did you know - IAmReality on 4/2/14 at 7:49 pm|
Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Arkansas, and the recently added A&M.
Since expansion only once has any of those teams managed to go 3-0 against the "big 3" of the West (Alabama, Auburn, LSU).
It was Arkansas in 1998 and they managed to somehow not win the division, losing the tiebreaker to Miss...

| SEC Rant|| Student fan attendance is a nationwide problem - IAmReality on 2/18/14 at 10:00 am|
So it turns out it isn't just grumpy old man talk pointing out that student fan interest and attendance seems to be falling.
Students don't show up, or they show up and leave early, or they show up and barely cheer or pay attention, etc.
You've probably noticed it at your school already.

ESPN voters have decided. That makes it official. Everybody else can just go ahead and shut down their rinky dink programs.

It's cliche and it's trite because it's true.
You have the choice of the #1 defense or the #1 offense you take the defense every single time....
| SEC Rant|| Where do you suppose the Auburn 2013 National Champs shirts ended up? - IAmReality on 1/26/14 at 4:53 pm|
Recently spotted in Colombia, South America.
Apparently down there in an alternate reality Colt McCoy had a brilliant game throwing for 300+ yards and 4 TD's leading Texas to a comfortable 38-24 victory over Alabama.

South Carolina beat the Fiesta, Orange, and Cotton bowl winners, whose final records were 12-1, 11-2, 12-2.
Lost to Tennessee.
| SEC Rant|| The balance fallacy (aka Why Doug Nussmeier sucks) - IAmReality on 1/3/14 at 12:12 pm|
You hear coaches talk about it, you hear the media bobbleheads spout it
"Balance, gotta be balanced, it's good to be balanced, want to have a balanced offense! blah blah blah"
Balance purely for balance's sake is stupid and completely misses the point.

| SEC Rant|| Does the SEC's recent Sugar Bowl suckage mean anything? - IAmReality on 1/3/14 at 9:03 am|
The SEC is now 1-4 in it's last 5 Sugar Bowl appearances.
That seems quite odd considering that the SEC has been unbeatable in the BCS title game, usually in a dominating fashion.
Is it just a string of bad games that don't have any other meaning? Or is there an actual cause/effect thing going...
| SEC Rant|| A few telling stats about the game - IAmReality on 1/3/14 at 1:53 am|
Oklahoma scored points on 5 straight possesions (4 TD's and 1 FG).
The last time a team scored on 5 consecutive possesions against Alabama was @ UGA in 2003. That was a probation Alabama team that went 4-9.
The most points given up in the 1st half under Nick Saban has been 21, which has happen...

What a terrible season. Everybody laugh at Alabama for being so awful! Those losers didn't manage to win another national championship this year!...

Trash offensive line, trash FG kicker, RB's that constantly fumble, secondary that gets routinely torched...
That doesn't sound like a team that goes 11-1 in the SEC.
Was the SEC bad this year? Or did we just fall apart at the end?

| SEC Rant|| FSU / Auburn will define the SEC this season - IAmReality on 1/2/14 at 11:20 pm|
If Auburn wins, another rang, another title, that's all anyone remembers.
If FSU wins, especially if they win big, the SEC was officially bad this year....
| SEC Rant|| Stat worshipping is for loser fans of loser programs - IAmReality on 11/21/13 at 2:09 pm|
Whenever I hear people bragging about stats, be they an individual player's stats or a team's stats, it's almost always a fan of some team not contending for anything.
Football is about wins and losses, it's about championships. Every single action a football team takes goes into that and that al...

Two big games left, LSU and @ Missouri.
You gotta figure a ton of the Winston voters are actively looking for a reason to jump ship at this point.
Unless Manziel plays like crap he can give them that reason....
| Alabama Sports Board|| Yeldon and Drake - always be fumblers? - IAmReality on 11/17/13 at 11:24 pm|
I mean, at this point don't you think the coaching staff has tried everything to get Yeldon and Drake to hold the ball better? If it hasn't worked by now it's not going to.
RB's come in 3 varieties when it comes to ball security.
The vast majority of RB's are just ok, they don't fumble alot or...
| SEC Rant|| Why do Missouri and Auburn fans think they're national title contenders? - IAmReality on 11/17/13 at 2:18 pm|
A 1 loss SEC champion will be above all 1 loss teams. If a 1 loss team makes the title game, it will be an SEC team.
But in case you haven't noticed, a 1 loss team isn't making the championship this season.
Have you seen FSU and OSU's remaining schedules? They aren't losing. Baylor most likely...

Considering how bad the team was playing and the really atrocious mistakes being committed right and left (fumbles, ints, penalties, dropped passes, etc. he didn't seem particularly animated.
He looked just kind of annoyed and disgusted.
I like it better when he's spitting fire....
| SEC Rant|| The Coach who never punts - IAmReality on 11/14/13 at 10:47 pm|
Some of you may have heard of this guy, high school coach out of Arkansas. He never punts, ever. Goes for an onsides kick almost every time as well. Goes for 2 almost every TD as well.
