introduce logic to cloud over the SEC SUCKS parade?
I thought that myself when I read that article that talked about a Data Scientist(tm)
introduce logic to cloud over the SEC SUCKS parade?
What kind of bullshit sensationalism is this? No one said they sucked pal - and a lot of the comments in this "parade" regarding schedules and OOC games are perfectly logical. Go watch another round of ESPN.
They've been pretty underwhelming in out of conference play this year, though. In terms of this year, the SEC is just an average conference.
About 75% of winning the MNC in the BCS era is getting voted into the title game. And what does that involve? Yep, self-promotion. Yeah, you have to have at least one team from your conference that has 0 or 1 loss, but most conference have that. I don't deny the SEC has done well in the actual game. But when the game gets set up for them on a platter like two years ago year (Alabama vs LSU) how can they NOT win the MNC? It was utterly ridiculous that either Oklahoma State or Stanford wasn't in that title game instead of Alabama.
There is only one explanation...that was not the real Nick Saban...the real Nick Saban is in Texas
It didn't look like him in the postgame interview either. Looked like he was missing too much hair on the top of his head. Could be a lot of it laying on the field from him trying to pull it all out.
Let's hope Les Miles isn't around...might mistake it for a blade of grass
I noticed his hair also. But, more for the color. I thought it must be totally grey/gray, but he has to color it so he looks younger and immortal to recruits so they think he will be coaching Alabama forever. #justformen
It's not like we were able to get to McCarron when he was our d-line coach 2 seasons ago. He's a good coach but you need talent on the d-line to execute pass rush and run stop schemes.
And they brought multiple linebackers (and corners on occasions) to get extra pressure on McCarron... Most of the pressure wasn't a result of the d-line. When it was, McCarron was taking 5-6 seconds to try and find receivers downfield while in the pocket and was buried under pressure like any other QB would be after stalling in the pocket
difference at Michigan he wasnt coaching the entire DLine just a position on the line but I agree u need to have talent
My early favorite for Non-Michigan thread title of the year.
I never create threads on here, but as soon as it popped into my head I hurried to get it posted before anyone else thought of it.
"Over-rated" chant at the end. This was a good way to start the new year in sports. I actually want OSU and FSU to win to prop up the B1G more and knock down the SEC. We don't need 2 of 4 in the playoff from that conference next year
Thank God... A little quiet in the south about the "strength" of the SEC at least until the NC... Now to shut them up completely, FSU (and Oklahoma St.).
This is a good laugh if you want to see an angry SEC fan before the game saying Stoops will regret his words. Some of my favorite Bob Stoops quotes that were included in the above article:
“I still don’t know how (Texas) A&M was third in the country in total offense and scoring offense playing all those SEC defenses. I have no idea how that happened,” Stoops said. “Oh, they got a quarterback. That’s right.”
“Just a few years ago, we had all the quarterbacks,” Stoops said in a small session with beat reporters, according to The Oklahoman. “And now, all of a sudden, we can play a little better defense and some other people can’t play defense.”
“It depends on who you want to listen to,” Stoops said. “Listen, they’ve had the best team in college football, meaning they’ve won the national championship. That doesn’t mean everything else is always the best.”
“So you’re listening to a lot of propaganda that gets fed out to you,” he said. “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.”
Saban added that he "really likes Stoops" but added that "people who don't play in our league (SEC) ... don't understand how tough it is."
it's also amazing how moving to the SEC improved A&M and MIzzou so much, so quickly.
Putting that gigantic SEC patch on your jersey makes you instantly faster.
Did anyone else feel like AJ resembled this kid with his chin strap strapped a bit too tight?
(on my phone and can't imbed)
it was so damn distracting. He cheecks and chin smashed together to form an assface. I bet that LSU Freek guy will come up with something.
It also won the last two national titles.
of MANBALL is running the football ANY freaking time you want. That definition would put Stanford as the ultimate MANBALL team in college fottball in 2013 ... and they lost.
Sparty won by throwing the football as Cook had a career game .... so how is that MANBALL?
To me, MANBALL is having a dominant line on each side of the ball and running a two-back / multi-TE pro style offense. Very tough to run when the two weakest links of your team are the o-line and d-line, respectively.
Did anyone see AJ's girlfriend's reaction when he got sacked and fumbled at the end? It was a glorious sight to behold, indeed.
There's a GIF of her reaction on SB Nation which is much better because it captures the emotion of her and those around her, but I dont know how to embed it.
Here you go:
poor old Brent Musburger.
HahaHAAAAA!! I could watch this all day!!
That's gotta be pretty awesome, if you're an ESPN cameraman and you get the "Hot Girl Cam"
I agree with Lou Holtz...AJ's mom is hot hot hot.
I agree. She is a nice looking woman.
Thank you Phork
I think I flipped off the TV when they showed these two last night.
Love the half surrender cobra.
So. Much. Schadenfreude.
Tonight was a big blow to the SEC.
I hope that one day we get to the point when 11-2 and 10-3 seasons are our bad years like Alabama.
Don't get me wrong, anything less than 9 wins (depending on youth/depth) is extremely disappointing, but to me being pissy about 10-11 wins just isn't healthy, and it takes the fun out of college football. Despite the run they've had recently, there's probably people in Alabama that are on suicide watch now.
by 5pm tomorrow. I'll say 5,000.
Uhhhh no. The AD will get zero messages. Maybe two, there's always crazy people in Alabama.
Saban has 4 national titles and makes more then 7 million dollars a year. If he's bummed tonight I think he'll be alright in the morning.
Maybe someday we will be lucky enough to call an 11 win season poor or unsatisfactory.
Oh no, it's the trolling grammar police. Find something better to do with your life then scrolling through every comment searching for a grammatical error. I'm so proud of you for pointing this out now I can sleep better at night.
Hmm where's the congrats Oklahoma thread? I was told it made you a douchebag to not have a 500 ass kissing thread towards other teams.
Didn't care who won, just glad Bama lost and that the devil didn't hold up his end of whatever bargain he made with Saban.
Always knows what's written in the fine print better than his client does.
