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.
