re: FSU vs Clemson the premier game in college football? - H-Town Tiger
[quote]maybe, maybe not bc wouldn't they still have to beat Florida?[/quote] Alabama had the SEC West wrapped up before the Iron Bowl last year so they still go to SEC CG and on to playoffs. They also had it won before IB in 2014. 2015 Auburn was out though and Auburn win would have given divisio...

[quote]So we aren't allowed to point out the OP is wrong? [/quote] Sure, but a) he's not wrong everything he said was true b) just because it's also technically true about the Iron Bowl doesn't mean he's wrong. What the premier game is, is ultimately an opinion. We know what the winner of bot...

[quote]You just described the Iron Bowl since 2009. Seven conference titles between them since 2009. With five national titles in seven appearances.[/quote] You could also say the winner of the Bama-Tennessee game has gone on to win the SEC 4 of the last 5 years and 3 and played for 4 of the ...

re: ACC thinks they are the premiere Conference - H-Town Tiger
On Les, I don't mean just losing to Saban cost him, yes he was losing other games and that's why he out. 1 loss last year and he may have been in the playoffs. On the flip side if he wins a 2nd title he's pretty much bullet proof a 3rd and they name the field for him. He would have at least the 1 e...

re: ACC thinks they are the premiere Conference - H-Town Tiger
Louisville has the reigning Heisman winner, they fell apart at the end of last season but did spend a large chunk of the season in the top 5, if they are undefeated or win the ACC with 1 loss they will be in the playoffs. Miami has a pretty easy schedule, they are at FSU but avoid Clemson and Lvill...

re: ACC thinks they are the premiere Conference - H-Town Tiger
[quote]but the reason does matter. [/quote] I would argue the reason for Meyer, Miles and Richt are gone can be summed up in 2 words. Nick Saban. Miles would have at least 1 and maybe 2 more NC if Saban stays in the NFL. Richt may have a ring or 2 if not for Saban in 2003 and 2012. Plus both lost...

re: ACC thinks they are the premiere Conference - H-Town Tiger
You are quibbling over semantics the point as I took it was the quality of coaching in the SEC has declined (that's more accurate than fleeing :lol:) 3 of the top jobs in the SEC opened up in the last 2 years, Florida, UGA and LSU and they hired 2 Saban assistants and a DL coach. Former Saban assis...

re: ACC thinks they are the premiere Conference - H-Town Tiger
[quote]And what coaches are "fleeing"? [/quote] Meyer and Franklin left, Miles and Richt were fired. Look at the coaches. Saban is in a class by himself after him the ACC and B1G are lapping the SEC. Fisher, Swinney, Richt, Petrino, are light years ahead of everyone in the SEC not named Saban. ...

re: Why didn't Les change? Do you think Les ever really thought he was going to get fired? - H-Town Tiger
[quote] People say that, but even with Mett in 2013 we threw the ball 38% of the time[/quote] People also get too hung up on percentage. Oregon with Marcus Marriota threw it roughly 41% of the time in 2014. Les' biggest problem was not run pass percentage per se, he was too predictable in most...

re: Why didn't Les change? Do you think Les ever really thought he was going to get fired? - H-Town Tiger
There's a line in a movie (The Pirates of Silicon Valley) Bill Gates says "success is a menace it convinces smart people they can't be wrong". That fits Les to a tee. Haters may not like to admit it but he had a lot of success here. In his day 17-14 games were the norm and he'd rather win 9-6 t...
