Bob Stoops believes that the Hype machine for the SEC is overblown.
“So you’re listening to a lot of propaganda that gets fed out to you. You’re more than smart enough to figure it out. Again, you can look at the top two, three, four, five, six teams, and you can look at the bottom six, seven, eight, whatever they are. How well are they all doing?"
“What’d we [the Big 12] have, eight of 10 teams in bowl games this year? Again, you figure it all out.”
It seems that winning the last 7 National Championships is not domination
Michigan is still leading the EDSBS Charity Bowl with a little over 2 days remaining to donate. Texas is now #2 after some huge donations yesterday. Donate now to help Michigan win their 3rd straight EDSBS Charity drive. Donations go to Refugee Resettlement & Immigrations Services of Atlanta.
