Will this stop the SEC falacy?

Posted: Jan 2, 2015 12:56 AM

So Alabama gets to be #1 because a 1 loss team in the SEC is better than any other 1 loss team because of their competition, huh? Anyone take notice to what happened to that competition in the bowls? I think TCU, OSU, Oregon, and others showed that 1 loss teams in other conferences are pretty doggone good too.

demand we swallow.

Someone higher up needs to speak out if they give the SE-She and credit next season...

All of the previous #1's from Sec lost

That alone should show that they are nowhere close to deserving of the benefit of the doubt.

The single stat that all of the prognosticators point to for the reason the SEC is deserving of their praise is the run of championships.... Can they admit that the dream is over?

My guess is no, but they will continue to lose credibility the longer they try to prop up undeserving teams. We will see what the pre-season polls look like

Close enough...phonetic-wise and perception-wise.

Phallicy ... that's funny. TU for you.

ESPN spin has already started this AM. On Mike&Mike, most of the coverage devoted to FSU destruction. SEC losses dismissed as "small sample size", "still the best conference", "bowls unpredictable due to different motivations", "go by full body of work" (playing themselves I presume), etc, etc,. Spinning OSU win as a "major upset". Was it really?

Certainly not from a financial standpoint, but from a competition standpoint. The network has managed to irritate everyone in the other power 5 conferences, and the other conferences have stepped up their game. The gap between the SEC and "everyone else" was never as great as ESPN made it seem, and that gap has closed tremendously over the last two years. Bristol will never admit this, of course, but I believe the knowledgeable college football fan recognizes the fact. Go Tigers!

No, they will still have 12 teams in the top 25 next season. They are just so loaded with talent from top to bottom. This leaves everyone else with as good or better talent fighting from the bottom to move up.
