Finally Someone To Beat The SEC?

I think this is a great quote from Stewart Mandel, columnist for Sports Illustrated, talking about the SEC versus SEC match-up in the BCS championship game: The game hasn’t even been played and the SEC has already won its sixth straight national title. Ah, but an SEC team will also lose a BCS title game, […]

It Was The Worst of Halves, It Was The Best of Halves

I should start off this post right away with an apology to LSU fans everywhere. You see, it was my fault that the Tigers looked so incredibly inept on offense for the entire first half of the SEC title game yesterday. I watched the game on TV, like millions of others, and like a large […]

LSU Heads To Atlanta, Eyes BCS Championship

I spent Friday telling everyone I met not to talk to me about the LSU game as I had recorded it to watch later. I stayed off of the Internet, didn’t read email, and never watched anything on TV that wasn’t targeted to the under 10 crowd. (Think Disney channel.) On the drive home I […]

Between The Numbers

LSU, Alabama, and Arkansas are rated 1-2-3 in the BCS as expected after the mayhem that took place last weekend. Who is really the best team? I though I would play with some numbers and see if there are any indications.

Rebels Down, Will Hogs Be Spoilers?

Three of the past four years, including the last national championship year in 2007, LSU has lost to Arkansas. They’ve found all sorts of ways to lose… a triple overtime upset when LSU was last ranked #1 in 2007, a one-point defeat in 2008, and by allowing a last-second score at the end of the […]

LSU Faces Backup Quarterback at Ole Miss

Ole Miss suspended their starting quarterback for the game this week against LSU, and potentially for their season ending game against Mississippi State as well. On the surface this would seem to continue a trend for LSU as they seem to get teams right at the worst time. On the other hand, there’s not much […]

Up Next: Ole Miss

With apologies to Arkansas, but I’m not going to overlook this week’s game against Ole Miss. Have they won an SEC game yet this year? No. Do they have a lame duck coach? Yes. Is there anyone on the planet that thinks Ole Miss will be able to defeat LSU when they host the Tigers […]

LSU Over ‘Bama

The wildcard for me is coaching: I think Les Miles brings a certain unpredictability aspect to the game, so if Sabin can get into his head that could impact the outcome of the game. That’s what I wrote last week while thinking about the LSU versus Alabama game that took place last night, and as […]

And Then There Were… Fewer Take II

I don’t think anyone was surprised to see Oklahoma take down previously undefeated Kansas State this past weekend. As a result, the Sooners moved right back up a few spots in the polls. In the “what the heck?” department Texas Tech (who was last seen whipping up on the Sooners) lost at home to formerly […]

WVU to the Big 12? Why not take them in the SEC?

I don’t understand why West Virginia isn’t being talked about as a candidate for the SEC rather than the Big 12. For one thing, the SEC has 13 teams now, and that can’t work. For another, WVU is already on the eastern edge of the country, and the SEC is going to be looking for […]
