Wait, there was a football game?

Evidentially Ohio State played too last as they seemed better suited for the GMAC Bowl. Seriously. The next team that plays the over-matched Buckeyes in the BCS Championship Game should let them get up by 21 points before actually playing. But thankfully that won't be next season since USC will play them in the regular season, ending this charade. (That's right SEC, the Trojans actually go out of their way to schedule big-name teams in their non-conference schedule.)

Pity LSU, though. This game seemed like an afterthought after the way USC undressed Illinois in the Rose Bowl. You remember the Illini, right? The team that also beat Ohio State. The truth is, the Tigers looked to be the third best team in the nation, and really, you can't be all that sure that LSU is better than Missouri. But give credit for Two-loss Miles, who proved to be the biggest snake-oil salesman in the banjo troupe. You won, but just don't expect me to call you national champions.

Wait 'til the Erickson thugs come in on the ASU O-Line next year. We'll beat Georgia.

And USC would be undefeated if they were in the SEC.

Okay you begin saying that Ohio State is better suited for the GMAC bowl and then you use them as proof that USC schedules tougher OOC games during the regular season. You my friend are the true definition of a Homer! Oh and Sun Devil, I'm assuming you mean that USC would be undefeated in the SEC because they wouldn't be playing powerhouses like Stanford? Gimme a break. USC beat like 4 teams with winning records during the regular season.

What would happen at THN if four SEC teams were in the Final Four?

Rock on, we have a National Champion who was beaten by Kentucky and Arkansas... That is phenomenal.

Wait 'til the Erickson thugs come in on the ASU O-Line next year. We'll beat Georgia.

We? We who? ASU? O-Line recruits wont help the fact that Rudy Carpenter under-throws everyone and has an arm that Chad Pennington can laugh at. Erickson or not, ASU will strive for mediocrity, while constantly being overrated.

Question - who has hotter women, the PAC-10 or the SEC?

flohtingPoint said...

Easy answer... Pac-10, without a doubt. LA, with all the medically enhanced chicks, ASU with the Tempe 12, good god...

SEC has Florida and then a bunch of inbred wildebeasts.

Better than having a national champion who got beat by Stanford. And who did USC beat again? Nobody. Please don't say Illinois or ASU. Just be thankful that Dixon went down and you got a cakewalk to the Rose Bowl.

You homers and two-loss Carroll can go cry in your pillows, before you start biting it.

Go Tigers.

I didn't watch much last night, but the girls dancing barefoot to the LSU marching band were very nice... a LOT better looking than the oddly Jamie Farr-esque USC cheerleaders that are always pictured here.

Maybe the USC cheerleaders just don't take good pictures. Or maybe Jamie Farr just has a lot of daughters.

That is not going to happen. The SEC is awful.

You know, it'd be a lot more entertaining if these Red State "colleges" would challenge each other to see if any of their students can spell "CAT" if they're spotted the "C" and the "A". Whichever school wins the national championship would get first pick of livestock for their cattle-inseminating MBA program. Seriously, how much schooling do you need to be a chicken farmer or a greeter at Wal Mart? BTW, my verification word is "dtvcj" which is how anyone currently enrolled in an SEC school spells "government farm subsidy".

As a buckeye fan, I am distraught. To make myself feel better, I am going to watch the USC-Stanford game on a continuous loop.

Maybe if I get bored I'll throw in ASU-Texas, or Notre Dame-UCLA just to spice things up.

That should do the trick...

Yeah the SEC doesn't play anyone out of conference. Lets see, Auburn goes to WVU next year. Alabama opens with Clemson. UF plays Hawaii (quit laughing), Miami (stop the laughing dammit), FSU (remember when they were decent? I had hair then.), GA goes to ASU (ASU will get punked bigtime)and TN plays UCLA. Remember, games booked 5-8 years ago. Of course the SEC doesn't play anyone out of conference. When we play Pac 10 schools.

Kentucky (SEC) plays Indiana (Big 10) every year

That's not going to happen, because North Carolina isn't in the SEC.

They do? Let's see:
Eastern Kentucky
Kent State
Louisville
Florida Atlantic

Hmm. None of those look like Indiana to me.
