[quote]If Saban wants $12 million, he can pack his bags and leave. No CFB coach is worth $12 million. Hell, Sean Payton is making $8 million and Belichick is making $7.5 million a year and they are two of the best and most highly paid coaches in the NFL. That should put into perspective what a ridic...

[quote]I'm not sold on how much it helps him to play one game with receivers and backs that he won't have around him next year.
Taking 15 extra practices with just about ALL of the first team reps is massive any way you slice IMO.
I just absolutely hate it for Mettenberger. ...

No, a loss that doesn't put Mich. St. out of the pool for at-large BCS selection would pull Wisconsin into the Cap One, and send a Nebraska/Minnesota type team to the Outback Bowl....

The truth is that all 5 of the teams that still have a chance have some pretty shitty resumes.
They combine for 9 wins v. ranked opponents, and 1 v. the current top 10.
This week in 2011, LSU had 5 wins against ranked teams and 3 v. the top 10 by themselves....

I'd say the difference between this year and the last few is that the bottom of the league had a little fight in it.
Tennessee, Ole Miss, aTm, Georgia, and Vandy weren't easy outs for anybody.
Arkansas never gave up as evidenced by friday afternoon.

I admit that i can't get my memories of watching Auburn live against LSU out of my head. Objectively I realize that teams and players improve greatly over a season, especially new QBs and new coaches, but they were fricking horrible for the first half of the game.
I also admit that I take some so...

That particular day was a bloodbath for the SEC standings.
I really like USCe, and Spurrier and it sucks that a team that easily has a top 5 overall resume in CFB this year isn't even going to get the opportunity to play in a BCS bowl at the very least.
I imagine Scar fans were the only people...
| SEC Rant|| re: Coaches Poll out -REVISED, with South Carolina IN.. lol - CrippleCreek on 12/1/13 at 12:07 pm|
The top 5 in that poll has 7 wins over the top 25 I think, with 3 of the wins being over no. 25 aTm.
What a joke.
USCe has the best wins to their name of anybody in the country. How on earth did they lose to Tennessee again?

Attempting the 57 harder absolutely goes on the list. Nobody in college football has made one of that length this year, yet there have been 2 FGs...

The only reason people are ok with yesterday is because Jennings did it.
If mett pulls it out, les and the team would be catching 11 kinds of hell.
We were a 28 point favorite. I'd say there's no way to sugar coat it, but clearly a glimpse of what looks like a bright future at qb has done it....
