Some really bad moves I can think of
[b]Eddie Fogler[/b] leaving Vanderbily for So. Carolina in 1993. He was a rising star at Vandy and went to a quagmire @ USCe which ended his career within the decade.
[b]Bill Curry[/b] leaving UA for KY. While he did ok at Kentucky, this continues to be a b...

[quote]Fran to A&M was a DISASTER[/quote]
Not really I think. Fran knew Alabama was in for some rough years with sanctions coming and his stock was really at it's peak. He took a high money gig at a premier football school which was the safe play for him career wise at the time (or so it seemed)....

Drew Brees, for one was a spread quarterback at Purdue (cited by many as one of the 1st major conference teams to employ that offense).

That points system used in the OP link is just horribly flawed for ranking programs. McFadden had almost 3/4 of Arkansas' whole point total.
Oklahoma's quantity over the whole decade was the most impressive, while Alabama's clearly the king over the last 5 years.
I think if you ask most SEC fa...

Maybe it's just an Alabama thing, but we enjoy beating ND as much as Auburn. It just brings out this visceral response to Bama fans. Definitely routing for LSU in this one.
Can be cold as balls in Nashville sometimes at that time of year. Last music city bowl we went to in 1998 was in freezing ra...
| SEC Rant|| re: Who ya got? Amari Cooper or Julio Jones? - droliver on 12/5/14 at 6:25 pm|
If you believe reports, Cooper was running in the low 4.3 range this summer, and is certainly faster then JJ in game conditions. He has better hands and is a much more elusive route runner the Julio as well. He reminds scouts of a bigger Marvin Harrison.
Julio OTOH is just the prototypical physic...

From the outside it just looks like LSU is in a rut, kind of like Nebraska under Solich was about a decade ago. Miles has not shown that he's the guy to rehab the program from good to consistently very good/great. The inconsistency on the field just seems to reflect the culture Miles fosters off it....

If Drake can run full speed by the time of the draft, he'd have to give some consideration to coming out, no?
He's already show he can be an explosive runner and pass catcher. I don't know that his value goes up by just coming back as another back in the rotation. If he can run a 4.3 in the sprin...
| Alabama Sports Board|| re: Blake Sims is my favorite QB ever - droliver on 11/16/14 at 11:56 am|
I hate to nit-pick, but are we watching the same guy? He's very inconsistent with his throws on swing passes and on across the middle in terms of putting it in the right spot. Some of those slow cross field throws he makes also give me heart attacks as he doesn't really have the arm to make it.

The talent level between LSU and Alabama has been fairly level (slight edge UA) for the last 7 years or so, but Les Miles' coaching and personality is so unpredictable it's going to cost you some games you should have won.
Without a doubt, LSU is one of the most [b]undisciplined[/b] good teams e...
| Tiger Rant|| re: So youre telling me theres a chance! - droliver on 10/29/14 at 1:35 pm|
Going to hard to thread the needle with this scenario. I do not see MSU or Auburn losing 2 more games. Auburn will be favored in all but the iron bowl, and that's only because it's on the road. MSU will be favorites in all but the Alabama game. LSU will also be a home underdog against Alabama.

With multiple teams tied who've all beaten the others and all have the same division record, doesn't it go to some strength # of the cross division opponents in the SEC?
LSU: UF, UK
UA: UF, UT
MSU: UK, Vandy
OM: Vandu, UT
AU: UGA, USC
Auburn has the best opponent record with UGA in the m...

I think Alabama wins that 3 way breaker (with MSO & OM), just as Auburn would win it for the right to go to the SECCG.
There's a pretty good chance that an 11-1 team from the West who lost that tiebreaker could make the final 4 as the last team in....
