  1. If Clowney joins this class, I'll run around my house naked three times.
  2. I'm glad they won the bronze. The team is old and needs to get younger.
  3. Megan Rapinoe and her allies on the team and association can have any political views they want. I don't think anybody really has a problem with that. The problem is that the Megan Rapinoe wing took the US women's team, hijacked it, and made it all about her and her political views. Everybody else on the team was clearly under pressure to fall in line. Another issue is that the women's team holds on to there veterans for far too long. Half of this team is over 30. Rapinoe is 36 and coming off the bench, Long is 39.
  4. US women's soccer loses to Canada. Will play for the bronze.
  5. Herbie's network is what's driving this.
  6. I forgot the Big 12. They have had 4 teams win multiple titles since the 1990's. Nebraska Oklahoma Texas Colorado Again, realignment has occurred but you get the picture.
  7. So we're counting Georgia in 1980? Can we count Penn State 1986? Miami and Florida State and their 8 national championships since 1983 for the ACC? I think Pitt won one too with Marino or Dorsett. ND for 1988 as partial ACC as well? And yes I know, there has been realignment since those titles. Yes, the SEC is doing very well and the playoff has been very good for them. Every school literally has a bag man.(read the bag man article) It pays very well to visit there. Even better to commit.
  8. I get it. And to be fair, their top probably is better than the other tops. There is just this misconception that 75% of the SEC is just amazing every year and it's just so brutal. But in reality you'll have Alabama with a strong LSU and Georgia one year, Alabama with a strong georgia and Florida the next and etc. The rest are pretty meh each year. It's like how the ACC was when Duke and North Carolina were great every year. To me you have three great programs in cfb. Alabama, Clemson and Ohio State. Then you have a cluster of ND, Oklahoma, Georgia, oregon and maybe LSU and Wisconsin. But LSU has a lot of off field problems right now and is probably going to crash and burn soon.
  9. Yeah, Ole Miss is a real power house. https://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/schools/mississippi/index.html Auburn too. https://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/schools/auburn/index.html LSU a couple of great seasons and 8 so so to good seasons. https://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/schools/louisiana-state/index.html Florida with a very up and down....and I mean REAL down, last 10 years. https://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/schools/florida/index.html This is a common shirt down here(I live in sec country). https://images.app.goo.gl/rYQJXnfvsk1Y5ZGNA Do you guys even watch regular season football? Or are your noses stuck up the sec jockstraps?
  10. You guys are SEC starstruck. I see it all the time. There's Bama. And then a couple of really good teams every year. I would put OSU, Penn State and Wisconsin against that. For instance, remember a couple of years ago when everybody wanted a two loss Georgia in the playoff? They got whacked by Texas in their bowl game. The joke down here was 'beat three loss team in history. I'm not saying that when they make the playoff, they don't make it count, I'm just saying it's not nearly as deep as you think. Ole Miss. Now there is another dog that I forgot.
  11. How many titles has Georgia won in the last ten years? 20? 30? Your going all the way back to Urban Meyer for Florida. That was two jobs ago for him. How many titles has LSU won since Saban got Bama rolling? 1 and it was a Burrow lightning in the bottle. ND has beaten them twice in the last 5 years. Not so mighty Auburn? Same, with a bidding war QB. We can go back 15, 20,25 years and find different eras. I think 10 is pretty fair. Long enough but not too long. If I wanted to cherry pick I could say the ACC has won three of the last 6. FSU and Clemson twice. It's Alabama. Look at how many titles they have won since 2011. It's like 6 or 7.
  12. SEC football is reputation. It's Alabama. Alabama is what the rest of the league latches onto. It's a common joke down here. Unless a team catches lightning in a bottle with a qb ala LSU or Auburn, they aren't any better than the better teams in the other leagues. And they have their dogs too. Vandy, Ark, Miss St, Mizzou, Tenn, Kentucky, South Carolina, etc.
