Sugar Bowl Open Thread

I don't know, is there anything better on? If we have to bump into the SEC so much, I wish it was in the Sugar Bowl. New Orleans is a great trip.

The South Carolina game had so many what ifs - one wrap up tackle, one less fumble, one etc...Yes, the SEC teams have won many games this year, but the notion that any conference is dominating another is pretty untenable.

Even if Louisville completely gags this game away, any notion of "dominance" should be put aside.

"This is why they play the game...:

Did anybody else noticed that they used Michigan and Virginia Tech helmets with the Sugar Bowl logo after that last interception before they went to commercial break?

 Hopefully the SEC will be semi fairly ranked next season. You start them off with 5-6 teams in the top ten let them play a weak non conference schedule and then drop them 1-2 places when they get blown out by 40-50 points and then act surprised when they perform like they have in the bowls.

 Nebraska and Michigan where mediocre teams and took Georgia and SC to the end... Michigan should have won. LSU got beat by Clemson , Mississippi state got beat down by NW and now Florida ia getting smacked by Louisville. Hopefully ND lays a whipping on Alabama and we can put this SEC dominance to rest for atleast one year.

 I just wonder where the bandwagon 'SEC" fans will go..... Nevermind i answered my own question. They'll just go back to being ND fans

What will the ESPN/media narrative be? Big East dominance? The fall of the SEC? Charlie Strong, who turned down the Tennessee job, deals another blow to the conference he spurned?

If only...

You've gotta appreciate a sideline reporter who shoves his way in between a coach and the family he's trying to hug in order to ask a few meaningless questions.

Similar to yesterday evening after the Rose Bowl.  It seemed David Shaw (Standford HC) was trying to celebrate and the sideline reporter was pulling the "Coach, you have an obligation to talk to me" card so he stopped for a minute and answered her question.  He then proceeded to kind of walk away and be with his team and coaches, why he would want to do that after winning the Rose Bowl I have no clue, and she again tried to keep him by pulling the aforementioned card.  Mussberger pipes in from the booth stating that "the winning coach know before hand and is contracted into giving an interview post-game" blah blah blah.  Shaw is again pulled in, after, as Mussberger lets us know, "someone must have told him the circumstance and obligation" and answers her next couple shi**y questions.  It's all such a crock.  I personally don't need to hear what they have to say.  If networks want to have their cameras and watch a bit of celebrating that is fine.  But that is exactly what they should be doing, celebrating, and not giving dull, inane interviews with fuggin' sideline reporters.
