If my memory is correct, then what does this say about the power of the vaunted SEC? Particularly when Florida State will expose Clemson tomorrow to be a mere second tier team, only elevated so high because they defeated Georgia, a team that was perpetuating the myth that the SEC is this super strong conference.
Really? You're basing your stance on the old belief that since one team (Clemson) beat another (Georgia) and that team (Clemson) then gets beat by someone else (Florida State) then by default they (Florida State) must be superior to the team that got beat (Georgia) by the team (Clemson) they (Florida State) beat. Or as you put it a whole conference!!! Are you serious? When was the last time Florida State, Clemson, Stanford, Oregon (never), Notre Dame, USC, UCLA, Texas, etc. was even relevant in crowning the best in college football? Let me answer the question for you...about 6 times in the last 20 years. For the record I tried to make this sound as ridiculous as possible to match your comment about the SEC. As far as an SEC school playing a ranked opponent you may want to check the Top 25. It's made up of a bunch of SEC schools that play each other almost on a weekly basis.
How many teams has YOUR team played that are ranked in the top 25?
My memory isn't that good either. Just who is your team again. All I ever hear you do is bash the SEC.
schaeffer is unwilling to verbalize it, but by making these leaps of who beat who logic he confirms for us all that in his heart of hearts he believes that notre dame was a better team than stanford last season. schaeffer logic: if notre dame beat stanford and stanford beat oregon, then notre dame was better than oregon!
btw oregoon has played a ranked team, washington. washington will lose again tomorrow making three in a row. they will also lose to ucla. they will be bowl eligible at the season's end because of a weak schedule. but by tomorrow night they are exposed for the fraud they were built up to be by the west coast biased media in an attempt to give some measure of credibility to any win by the ducks!:D
Roseberry : please post your predictions for the weekend games so I can place my bets accordingly :p:p
in an upset, central florida over louisville by 3.
sc beats the vols by 14.
ducks win by 52 over another big opponent.
ucla beats stanford by 3. this 2nd loss exposes stanford's weakness.....too many white boys!
notre dame beats the trojans by 10 in the "i am only watching because i love the turtle neck, cable knit sweaters of the usc cheerleaders bowl".;-)
lsu beats ole miss by 13 after ole miss has a big rushing first half.
alabama takes a knee and beats the razorbacks by 12.
florida beats mizzou by 3. mizzou can't get it done without franklin.
the aggies sell out, stack the box on defense trying to force auburn to beat them passing. the "booger eaters" still rush for 275 on them. texas a&m wins by 10.
in the biggie of the week, winston finally plays quarterback like a freshman. clemson wins by 3 on the last posession.
if you can't win in vegas by betting against that.........:razz:
I guess us in other regions of the country get tired of the constant chest beating from SEC supporters. If they think they are so great, play some tough non-conference games.
You can ramble on all you want, but the fact remains, SEC teams have played two non-conference ranked teams at the time . .and lost both of them. (And these losses were by two of your darlings: Georgia (before their so-called injury problems and after bitch slapping South Carolina,another little darling) and Florida. So you can pound the table all you want, but you can't offer one piece of evidence that the SEC is that great of conference this year. The evidence just isn't there. Sorry Bubba
Hey schaeffer I don't need you to spell anything out! I'll stick to what I posted which is based on facts. You can try all you like but look back over the last 20 years the championships don't lie! Explain who exactly has Florida State played so far this year? I'll let you think about that one. Your argument is kinda, sorta stupid since Florida State is ranked ahead of LSU and since Alabama is the defending champs then maybe they should be ranked ahead of the Seminoles. Or should we all just agree with you since you think they're better? Get a grip! One more thing Enstein, I'm not a fan of Georgia or Florida!
