| Tiger Rant|| re: Anybody Else Feel Football Tickets Are Overpriced? - NathanL on 1/5/14 at 11:01 am|
For the upcoming home schedule I think they are. The problem is because of the way tickets are handled it pays to hold them for 10+ years even if you never go to a game waiting for good schedules and when the team is on an upswing instead of dumping them.
Our family held them all during the 90's ...

| SEC Rant|| re: College Football Playoffs second SEC team Questions? - NathanL on 12/29/13 at 11:17 am|
There's a reason we finally went to the playoffs and it's not to get (2) SEC teams into the playoffs. Think it's a coincidence we finally get it after (2) teams from the SEC made it into the title game?
Just more rigging of the system to make some of the other conferences feel good.

It really doesn't matter. There are really top level conferences now and non top level. The matchups between those are such a joke nowdays.
The downside to the SEC really upping their game since the '92 expansion has been how much of a letdown many of the bowls are after playing teams that wind u...
| SEC Rant|| re: OU to the SEC, pros and cons - NathanL on 12/21/13 at 12:13 pm|
No more teams please, in fact we could dump a few. We've already proven that if you win the SEC you play for the title (and most likely win it) so why dilute the chances?
Of course now we're going to the playoffs, but I don't believe they are going to allow more than 1 SEC team on a regular basis...

CBS is the big complainer about it and yet every home game they stick a crowd microphone right next to the student section. At home you can tell instantly when they cut that microphone off because you can no longer make out what they are saying....

The problem is we used to go to bowl games and play great teams or at least teams we never saw much of. Now with the SEC West being dominate 90% of the teams we could play in a bowl game are a let down competition wise and you see everyone play every game on TV nowdays.
