    Easy money to be made this week. Take LSU on the remarkably low 9.5 point spread against STATE in Starkvegas.

    AL is favored by 56 pts. I am surprised! I didn't think the bookmakers would even place odds on that matchup.

    I get that you are justifiably proud of your conference, but you don't need to be so obsessed about it. Just remember nothing last forever, Big Ten, Pac ten, Big Twelve all have had prolonged periods where they reigned supreme, then sucked for a while, then back on top. Just enjoy your time at the top and save these good memories for that time in the future when another conference dominates.

    I hear what you are saying. However, none of those other Conferences have won as many NC's in a row or even come close. Second, all those years you mentioned when teams like Michigan and USC were getting all of the love from the media, we still had some better teams that were snubbed. An undefeated Ole Miss team comes to mind. I think Grambling could have beaten some of those PAC and Big 10 teams back in the 60's and 70's that won Championships. The South was never as sports media magnet like Los Angeles and New York, two markets with enough sports writers to control the rankings. It wasn't until 2008 before ESPN admitted that the SEC was the toughest and best! That's one reason I am glad that a Playoff system is coming. The question is; are they going to let the best 4 play or will it be political?

    If that's all true why was Alabama a perennial favorite for decades? The 1950s-70s were great for Texas and Oklahoma, definitely not northern or big media center teams. Nebraska, Michigan, Notre Dame and Ohio State are far from New York and Los Angeles yet they were all National Champions. It just sounds like you have a chip on your shoulder over perceived slights against the South, and Grambling beating USC or Ohio State back in the day, give me a break. No one can argue that the SEC is the conference to beat, but please don't slight great dynasties from the past, there were some very dominant teams in all sectors of the Country throughout history.

    Franco, how many of these SEC defensive players are playing significant roles in the NFL? You ever hear of Kiki Alonso? Wonder where he went to school?

    Rose berry, do you remember when Alabama last travel west and played out here? How did they do in a bowl game out west? Have they ever played that powerhouse Utah?

    Anywho, how bad is Texas?? I mean it was funny for awhile, but it's just sad now. CFB is better when TX is good. They are pathetic.

    Texas has a huge drop off at QB when Ash is out...something tells me Ash will always have a glass jaw and may never recover from the concussion like symptoms that he has....They are reluctant to burn the red shirt status of Ty Swoopes so that leaves Case McCoy...Texas defense is in shambles and even new DC cant use smoke and mirrors to hide that fact, they are stuck with the personnel they have...the sad fact is they didnt get this way overnight and it will take some fresh blood at the top to get the program back to being a contender...if they get embarrassed by Oklahoma in the RRS, the change will come quickly
