We were closer than your closest team! So was Penn State. OSU was 3, OSU was 4...LSU was 3 + 4=7th!
Weak conference, and weak conference. There are SEVEN weak teams in your conference. Seven wins right there. Then Penn State on top of that, cream puffs OOC games against South Florida, Central Michigan, and Cincinnati. Wow. No wonder they had one loss. I give OSU credit for at least scheduling a tough team in UT, BUT THEY LOST, at home. Almost only counts in horseshoes, it's still a L. Wait, didn't they lose at "the horseshoe?"

I have seen no stats and a big fat # 7 ranking from your top team...you have no rebuttle! 7 weak team, ok! 4 strong! which is about 3 more than the SEC has ever turned out!

RE: Re: RE: Opinions don

whodi,
since you don't listen to logic...how about some on the field FACTS from the Bowl games.

9-3 Florida 31
7-5 Iowa 24
A #13 ranked (and a top 2 SEC team) barely beat a mid to upper level big 10 team. A game that came down to the final minute.

10-3 Wisconsin 24
9-3 Auburn 10

A weak Big 10 team(your words not mine) STOMPED and completely DOMINATED a top level SEC team.

11-1 Penn State 26
8-5 Florida State 23

After losing the starting RB and the leader on defense (team MVP) to injuries in the 4th quarter Penn State still wins. Florida St got lucky with a bad intentianal grounding call that gave Florida St a safety and then a freakish punt return for a TD.

As you say, loses are loses....SEC lost 2 out of 3 bowl games against the Big 10!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Explain that.

CORRECTION:

the Penn State RB and LB (team MVP) were both lost in the 1st quarter not the 4th.

RE: Re: RE: Opinions don

opps...another correction
so the the one game the SEC almost upset the Big 10 was really an ACC team.

RE: Re: RE: Opinions don

yeah...a top SEC team BARELY beat a mid to top level Big 10 team. a game that came down to the final minute.

if the SEC is better than one of their top 2 teams should be able to soundly beat a # 4 or 5 Big 10 team...right?

just look when two equal record teams play...the Big 10 CRUSHES the SEC

I thought wins were wins, and losses were losses? You can't say that, then compare scores. It defeats the very purpose of saying it.
