think i got this sec thing figured out. play along. there have been 2 main players in the bcs, bama and lsu, correct. every now and again uga,auburn and florida figure in. the other minions have to cheer for "the conference" which is essentially bama and lsu. am i making any sense. the coots have to live vicariously through the actual real teams in the sec to make themselves feel like they are really a part of it.
if a non-sec team loses to an unranked foe, then the non-sec team was overated and/or choked. If an SEC team loses to a non-SEC team in an upset, then the SEC team just really didn't look like they wanted to be there. For example Bama getting embarrassed by Utah in the Sugar and Florida getting embarrassed by Louisville in the Sugar.
Because what you really care about is the nagging feeling of inferiority that you just cant escape even by winning a hand full of games. So you have to come to a Clemson board and say "hey dont forgot us, we dont care!" Which means you do.
Apparently sec motor city bengal doesn't understand what the

word vicariously means. Means you live through others accomplishments, you know like the commercial that airs 97 times during your game's broadcast (sec! sec! sec! sec!)?
It matches up with your school's identity.
You've never actually accomplished anything worth mention in the history of your program. And don't think for a second that beating clemson, a national title program that's never respected you, and viewed you as inferior enough to not thoroughly prepare for your team before our recent championship games, as an accomplishment... similar to the way alabama viewed you in '11 or utah state or whoever they lost to in their bcs matchup. Nothing I'd be proud of at least, but again, we're talking in respect to your fanbase against ours.
Enjoy the vicariositivitiliness of beating teams that don't respect you (while on the way to their championships/BCS appearances), while you end up watching them tower over your program that never has, and never will be.
