| 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.
| SEC Rant|| The most storied program in college football - IAmReality on 2/7/14 at 9:40 am|
ESPN voters have decided. That makes it official. Everybody else can just go ahead and shut down their rinky dink programs.
| SEC Rant|| Defense wins championships - IAmReality on 2/2/14 at 6:39 pm|
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.

"Things are going great, and they're only getting better.
I'm doing all right, getting good grades.
My future's so bright I gotta wear shades."
| SEC Rant|| South Carolina beat 3 of the big 5 bowl champions - IAmReality on 1/4/14 at 12:29 am|
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.
[u]Take what the defense gives you and...
| 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...
| SEC Rant|| 11-2, top 10 ranking - IAmReality on 1/2/14 at 11:47 pm|
What a terrible season. Everybody laugh at Alabama for being so awful! Those losers didn't manage to win another national championship this year!...
| Alabama Sports Board|| How the hell did we win 11 games this year? - IAmReality on 1/2/14 at 11:22 pm|
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?
The FSU/Auburn game will say a lot about the conference thi...
| 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...
| SEC Rant|| Manziel wins the Heisman with two strong games - IAmReality on 11/21/13 at 9:26 am|
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.
| Alabama Sports Board|| Why the atmosphere in Bryant Denny feels flat - IAmReality on 11/13/13 at 1:46 pm|
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...
| SEC Rant|| Wow, Oregon plays a physical team and is shut down and pushed around - IAmReality on 11/7/13 at 8:49 pm|
Where have we seen this before?
Maybe Auburn in 2010?
Or LSU in 2011?
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 ...
