I think yesterday was a good lesson on the difference between football in snow and football in a blizzard. Anybody who watched the first half of Philly/Detroit and wants that for a Super Bowl is crazy. 8 points, only around 200 total yards, fumbles, botched snaps, and basically no passing game. O...

Auburn is already recruiting well in Alabama, they have 5/10 of the Rivals top 10 in Bama this year, while Alabama has 3. Alabama is recruiting nationally right now, and basically targeting every top kid in the country regardless of state, so I'm not sure a resurgent Auburn really changes that much...

2nd/3rd doesn't mean they take the 2nd/3rd "ranked" team from the SEC, it means they have the 2nd/3rd pick depending on if they choose West or want to go East and have to wait on the Outback.
It's a common misconception that the numbers by the bowl correlate to team rankings and not order or sele...

If all your "facts" about seeds were correct, then there would be no need for bowl selection committees. There would just be a chart and after the SECCG the bowls would be assigned. Since that obviously doesn't happen, and teams with better records get "lower" bowls than teams with worse records e...
