[quote]Chick-Fil-A, Cotton, and BBVA are actually the best SEC Bowls IMO because typically they're the only and/or best match ups on their respective dates so they provide great exposure for the teams [/quote]

[quote]If Saban has such a big ego, he would care how we is perceived. He wouldn't want to say "I absolutely am not going to Texas. They have a coach." and then immediately go to Texas. That would make him a snake-tongued liar. Which he is not.[/quote]

Well...... Big 10 and Pac 12 are tied to Rose, Big 12 tied to Fiesta, ACC and Big East tied to Orange (unless of course a team goes to Title game), so the Sugar is always going to get an At-large team.
