So... how 'bout them Tigers now, huh?
Still ahead of the WAC, tyvm.
They got outplayed. When you can't cover a back and stop a 4th and 10 to get to the BCS championship game, you don't need to be there.
At least the WAC isn't the Sun Belt.
OVC in my day.
To have a team lose the #1 position twice in one year, your conference has to have a team WORTHY of being #1. Twice. In the same year. Two plays, both amounting to less than 3 yards each, all season...that's how far from perfection they were. Both times it was a team in conference who beat 'em. In multiple overtime. I ain't seen that nowhere else this year. So we SEC fans will take our 8 bowl bids/2 BCS bids and maybe notice the scores of those 2-3 WAC games that get played in the first week of December.
As a true fan I still think they're Grrrrrrrrrrreat!
A lot of pundits are projecting LSU vs. Hawaii in the Sugar Bowl. That's a matchup I'd like to see, the Hawaii offense vs. the LSU defense, AKA the unstoppable force vs. the immovable object... although Arkansas seemed to be able to score a point or two.
I was on TV yesterday during the Army-Navy game...for about 10 seconds. I was standing way in the back of the crowd with a bunch of other Air Force people... I'm pretty sure I was in the frame because the camera was pointed directly at me.
You were that black guy in fatigues, right?
Nope. I was wearing 'civvies'. No uniform required off-duty.
2 more top seeds fall.
Screw it. Let Hofstra and North Dakota State play for it. Nobody else seems to want it.
Hawaii vs. Ohio State. It's unconscionable given the way things have gone this year that the only undefeated team in the nation doesn't have a shot at the title. Of course, many of you may remember Boise State...
Make that 9 bowl bids, 2 BCS.
Only Ole Miss, Vanderbilt, and South Carolina left out.
WAC: Every bowl-eligible team selected for a bowl and 1/4 of bowl-eligible teams selected for BCS.
Numbers, man. Give me numbers.
4/9 in bowls. The numbers I want to see, though, are recruiting budgets.
I should also point out that the same number of teams from both conferences made it last year, with the SEC going 6-3 in bowl games (67 percent) and the WAC going 3-1 in bowl games (75 percent).
I should point out that 9 does not equal 4, except in Fresno apparently.
Take our top 4's record against your top 4 record and see how it plays out. I know off the bat that Mississippi State is gonna get beat, plus probably Arkansas, Tennessee, and maybe Alabama.
I should point out that the sentence means that the SEC had nine teams in bowls last year as well as this year and the WAC had four teams in bowls last year as well as this year, except in east Tennessee apparently.
Ah. Grammar incommunicado.
Separate names with a comma.
