Back to this Ship Game Talk.
I'm sitting here. Looking at the past.
Here's what I see.
Without even getting into how many Heisman Winners and/or Candidates were embarrassed.
Jason White, Sam Bradford and Troy Smith.....ring a bell.
That 03' and 08' Sooners Team was scoring 40+ and 60+ points a GAME!
(They managed 14 points in Title Games against SEC Teams.) -LSU & Gators-
Same with Oregon Ducks and Ohio St.
All SUPER DUPER HIGH POWERED NON STOP
TEAMS NO ONE WANTED TO PLAY-(Herbstreit)
yata yata yata......talk about obnoxious John? Tell me about it...
They all came to the SHIP Game escorted by the Media.....and got worked.
In the Ship games, they score less than half their season average points against SEC Defenses.
That's not cocky, that's not soap box, that's not ego trip anything.
Just the cold hard facts ma'am.
I'm not saying FSU won't or can't beat Auburn.
But Damn, what exactly does FSU bring to the table that NONE of these other teams have?
Auburn had a pretty bad defense against Oregon in 10'.
Yet held the Super Duper Fastest Scoring College Football Team in NCAA HISTORY
to a mere 19 points....
Auburn seems to bring a DYNAMIC piece to the puzzle. In 2010 it was Cam. In 2013 it's this Brutal Rushing Game with a QB that can run and throw. VERY MUCH SO like that 2005 Texas/Vince Young Team.
What makes FSU different. They play in the ACC?
Ohio St, Sooners, and Oregon all come from bigger and tougher Conferences right?
Yet all faced the same fate.
...so again...what makes FSU different?
and if FSU does win? Do we throw out 7 in a row? or the 9 of 15 BCS Titles the SEC owns?
It's just silly. I'm so sick of hearing, "Is the SEC on the way down?" 'Will this be the year"?
I guess if Auburn does lose, THAT monkey will be off our backs.
But so many folks rooting against Auburn for the mere fact
that they'd HATE to see yet another SEC team bring home the Crystal.
That's what sucks for me. Haters, just b/c.
I think that's what Saban meant in that quote RookieTrainer shared.
That's not saying that's how he thinks."High achievers don't like mediocre people and mediocre people don't like high achievers."
He's just attempting to explain the hate and displeasure towards the conference.

Jimbo Fisher basically used the model he learned from you guys at LSU and has quietly recruited the best classes the last couple of years, IMO he has built an SEC type team that plays in the ACC...If you look up old articles of 2012 recruiting it will show that Jameis Winston wasnt some no name walk on
http://www.tomahawknation.com/2012/2...class-2012-fsuThen came the gem of the class -- five-star Jameis Winston, the top dual-threat quarterback in the country. Out of Hueytown (Al.), Winston was a tough fight for the Seminoles. He has not signed his paperwork yet, but plans to do so later in the week or over the weekend, after getting the chance to sit down with his family. He reiterated again today that he is "all-Nole." Winston is an incredible athlete with a big arm and a flare for making plays. FSU will have to win out against the baseball draft for him, come summer.
I have no idea what he meant. Which is why I said 'I think'.
It's also why I said, "I believe it was said" b/c I didn't know where it was said.
RoookieTrainer posted it. I took a gander at what it meant.
On the way to a third straight FCS Championship, two losses in three years and the best Coach Bohl's was offered is Wyoming? Seriously know one needs a coach in D1 football?
...and he took it? once again BEFORE the Playoffs are over...
