Bridge scheduling sucks. I think we can all agree with that.
We had UGA in 2008/2009, SC in 2009/2010, and UF in 2010/2011.
I want our UGA home and away. ...
| SEC Rant|| re: Moving Bama and Auburn to the East: isn't that the easiest way? - Blawdawg on 6/9/13 at 2:21 pm|
UT will never have another top 10 recruiting class again, so long as the world ends before signing day.
UT is #3 on 247 with 15 of a presumed 25 committed. ...
| SEC Rant|| re: Moving Bama and Auburn to the East: isn't that the easiest way? - Blawdawg on 6/9/13 at 1:49 pm|
On second thought, this is a great idea. Just swap Vandy and LSU. I'm sure the OP would agree. ...
| SEC Rant|| re: Moving Bama and Auburn to the East: isn't that the easiest way? - Blawdawg on 6/9/13 at 1:42 pm|
I would agree to that if the divisions could be named:
East - Champions Division - home of 9 NCs since 1992
West - Subpar little bitches division
This must be printed in large font on all logos and merchandise from the schools. ...
| SEC Rant|| re: Which School has the worst colors? - Blawdawg on 6/9/13 at 1:34 pm|
If you could only wear school colors to work you would never pick LSU or UT unless you are a pimp, a rapper, or work from home.
Not sure anyone else is even in the conversation. I'll hang up and listen for whether a purple suit or an orange one would look better at a job interview. ...
| SEC Rant|| re: Would Bama be as good as they are if UF was their CDR? - Blawdawg on 6/9/13 at 1:31 pm|
If someone wants to do a yearly UF/UT breakdown from 1992 through 2012 I am all ears, but I'll rest on my above post that swapping those 2 would not have affected our 4 titles and might have led to a win or two along the 7 year rape at the hands of UT in the late 90's early 2000s. ...
| SEC Rant|| re: Would Bama be as good as they are if UF was their CDR? - Blawdawg on 6/9/13 at 1:25 pm|
Snce we are talking about titles and permanent opponents we can only be talking about post-expansion. So Bama's titles from the 1920s through the 1970s and safe from this exercise. Bama has won 4 titles in the 21 year expansion era.
In 1992 Bama played UF in the SEC title game and won. Not sure ...
| SEC Rant|| re: Spurrier to Saban: Play TN as a Non-Conference Game - Blawdawg on 6/8/13 at 12:42 pm|
Way too much is being made of Bama/UT. Huge rivalry and should be preserved, but even as a Bama fan and AU hater the AU/UGA rivalry should never be broken.
Have some respect for history people! They have missed like one year (WWII) in that series since 1898. They have played in multiple cities, ...
| SEC Rant|| re: Spurrier to Saban: Play TN as a Non-Conference Game - Blawdawg on 6/7/13 at 12:03 am|
How is the answer he jumps to, play the game, but don't count it?
Imagine 2020 when 10-2 (7-1 SEC) Alabama with loses to AU and TN advances to the SEC Champ game over 11-1 LSU to face 10-2 UGA with losses to AU and LSU.
Let's see how long the rest of the SEC likes losses to traditional powers...

Regarding 2011 revenue versus 2015 revenue, the question is - absent the addition of Mizzou/TAMU would the SECN exist?
I actually don't known the answer. But that will be the difference between the revenue pie for 2011 versus 2015.
$300 million in 12 slices is a lot better than 14, but could...
| SEC Rant|| re: SEC to distribute $20.7M to each school. - Blawdawg on 6/1/13 at 1:36 am|
The CBS deal changed big time. They get the same amount of games, for the same price but allow ESPN or at least the ESPN run SECN to compete against the sacred 3:30 game.
Otherwise you have 6+ games jammed between 12-3 and 7-midnight
The all day SECN with 3 games, and as many as 6 SEC teams ...

AU had Jovon Robinson at practice, cleared by the NCAA, just as Hill was. THEN they found a problem.
Different situations but until the first day of fall class there are precedents for pulling eligibility. Once class starts, absent fraud, I think the player is in the clear. ...

If you are going to propose a new site, you need to at least meet 2 criteria to even utter a stadium:
A) it is in an SEC state - NC, really?
B) capacity equal to The Met's 10,800
That's not even getting into the idea that non-centralized locations (TX or AR) could lead to huge drops in tot...

These transfer games are strange to me and I can't remember a Bama transfer nightmare in my viewing lifetime. Travis Carroll went to UF, Eric Locke to UT, P. Simms to UVA, Corey Grant to AU.
Bama will have played against 3 of those.
I get not wanting your QB to go to a team he will play for ...

1. The SEC/CBS contract had a clause that a change in membership (for better or worse)would allow for changes in the deal
2. I suspect that the remedy for losing/gaining teams would be an arbitration, if a period of negotiation failed
3. The renegotiation now has CBS paying th...

You do know Saban is presently coaching at Bama right? This is more of a Saban hype piece than anything.
I guess if they did a poster with just the 33 (and they still may) Spurrier could do one with 150+ and say 150 > 33, choose USCe.

I agree. Follow the money and you see 50 teams in the big money crowd and another 10-30 posers before you get to teams hanging on to FBS elites coattails by getting paid $800k to take a dive.
The thought of 12 real games and a pair of 10-2 teams in the champ game makes me happy. (The #10 team in...
| SEC Rant|| re: Spinoff Thread: Why not UAB? - Blawdawg on 5/9/13 at 8:59 pm|
I didn't even touch the "UAB is in the top a academic tier" thing. Depends on how you define the top tier. There are like 2,000 colleges in the US and it is in the top 150-200.
It does nothing to rival Vandy, UF, UGA, TAMU, Bama, Mizzou, or AU academically overall so it would be 8th in the SEC a...
| SEC Rant|| re: Spinoff Thread: Why not UAB? - Blawdawg on 5/8/13 at 6:33 pm|
UAT does not control UAB. Further, UAT is not "the reason" UAB has an athletics department. The department is funded by its students, or rather their exorbinant loans....
