A meaningless bowl game? Interesting. You were just boasting about it/them a few yours ago yesterday?
make up your mind
I'll let you ease yourself into your version of utopia for winning the combo birthday/Christmas gift match-up over Michigan. Sorry, you know I pull for both SC and UM during the season, but I'm not swaying and loosening my thoughts on what I've seen.
As for Lattimore's loss and Shaw getting tossed around.. sorry, again. Yea, they count but I'm not sure if you're looking for a sympathy vote.. thats a hard sell for an SC team thats (apparently) been bringing in average to decent talent for quite some time. 'Next man up' mentality goes for everyone I assume.
I'm not sure what you call that ^^ but up here in my circle thats garbage.
OMG!!!OMG!! A WR IS OPEN! THE PASS D IS GARBAGE!!!
I guess anytime a WR ever gets open anywhere then the pass defense is garbage. I didn't know that, good to learn.
But seriously, all the bowl games are meaningless for the most part outside of the National Championship at this point. The playoff system will help that to some point. That SC/UM game meant a lot less to me personally than the SC-Clemson game, just to put it in perspective. It's nice for recruiting stand-point though. Sounds good to say "we won 11 games" but that means a lot less now that teams can play 14 in a season.
And you might need to actually read my discussion with HND. The comment about Lattimore/Shaw was in response to the noted loss of Robinson for UM. Whining and complaining? K, suuuuuure. Decent to average is Top 10 to Top 15 recruiting classes consistently? Again, something that I didn't know.
As far as 'boasting', my post was pointing out that the SEC went 6-3. Not dominating but a good performance for them overall. But if it was 8-1 and Bama had lost then it wouldn't have mattered, would it? It's hard to really consider you not trolling when I posted the following 'boast' about the SEC:Overall I really didn't see the SEC as dominant this year but the level of play across the NCAA board seemed down for the most part. I think there are a good # of teams that might have got thru the SEC with just one or two losses, just depending on matchups and schedules.
But please do let me know who the correct Top 10 will be. I'd be really curious how you justify less than 5 teams from the SEC in it after this season. Again, not because they're dominant, simply that the overall team quality seems down in the rest of the college landscape.
