| 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...
| Alabama Sports Board|| Saban seemed unusually subdued - IAmReality on 11/17/13 at 2:03 pm|
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.

I posted this in another thread but wanted to get actual Alabama fan's opinions.
1. Old money fans. Alabama has been a football power for generations and as such a lot of the fans are the old money crowd. These people just sit in silence and watch the game with the occasional golf clap for a big ...
| SEC Rant|| LSU's ranked streak in jeopardy - IAmReality on 11/13/13 at 9:47 am|
LSU currently has the second longest active streak of being ranked in the AP poll (76 straight polls).
A loss to A&M will almost certainly end their streak.
Currently active streaks:
South Carolina 59
| SEC Rant|| Only 1 coach in LSU history now has a winning record against Alabama - IAmReality on 11/11/13 at 12:33 pm|
And that man's name is Nick Saban.
In the sake of accuracy, Deitzel finished with a 2-0 record against Alabama while at LSU.
Somebody needs to tell CBS that, because during the game they said Miles was the only LSU coach besides Saban to have a winning record against Alabama...
| SEC Rant|| The bleak reality for the rest of the SEC - IAmReality on 11/10/13 at 5:34 pm|
As long as Saban is at Alabama they will dominate.
What coach and school in the SEC is going to build a program that can YEAR IN AND YEAR OUT recruit and develop talent the way Saban does?
These are your messiahs? These...

Where have we seen this before?
Maybe Auburn in 2010?

Or Stanford in 2012?
Same story every year....
| More Sports Board|| The single most blatantly blown call you'll ever see. - IAmReality on 11/6/13 at 9:43 am|
This call didn't affect the outcome of the game or anything, but I've never seen anything quite like it.
This happened last night in an otherwise non-notable game between Ohio and Buffalo.
The QB throws the ball away at the 4 yard line.
For some reason the refs rule this intentional groundi...

| SEC Rant|| Florida is most undisciplined team I've ever seen - IAmReality on 11/2/13 at 3:04 pm|
They led the country last year in personal fouls and they are still consistently getting them this year. Every play their players are more than happy to trash talk, chirp, push, etc. even when losing (last last year to Louisville).
Pretty clear Muschamp has no real control over them, big surprise...
| SEC Rant|| Why isn't Mike Evans getting any Heisman pub? - IAmReality on 11/1/13 at 4:18 pm|
It seems like the Heisman used to consider WR's way more than they do now. There have only been a few WR winners but as a kid growing up there it wasn't uncommon for a WR to get alot of consideration.
I know know it's primarily a QB award with a RB occasionally mixed in, but it's clear Evans is p...
| SEC Rant|| The BCS drama has been much ado about nothing since 2003. - IAmReality on 10/31/13 at 11:01 am|
From 1998-2003 the BCS formula was pretty complicated, involving human polls, computer polls, strength of schedule, quality win components, etc.
It basically made it so that the BCS standings could differ substantially from the human polls, which of course came to a head in 2003 when the #1 team ...

I see Auburn's success more as an indictment of Chizik than Malzhan being super awesome.
Auburn's turnaround is primarily due to the fact last year's team was not nearly as bad talent wise as their final record. That was a 7-5, 4-4'ish team that completely mailed it in the last half of the season...

Granted VT hasn't played a bunch of world beaters, but they've managed to win all their games since, usually pretty easily.
UF and Scar have big non-conference games to close the year, but as of right now Bama has the best OOC win in the entire SEC.
Props to Bama for scheduling so tough, other...

If they beat UGA they'd own a tiebreaker over them.
South Carolina already has a loss and has looked very pedistrian and Florida has glaring flaws.
If Missouri wins this Saturday couldn't you argue they are the new favorites to win the East?...

Everyone is all up in arms about the committee like their gonna randomly pick the teams or something.
Most years 2-3 teams will be obvious locks so really the committee's only function is going to boil down to them picking the final team from among 2-4 candidates.
