Submitted by Qmatic on January 7th, 2014 at 12:14 AM

With the conclusion of the 2013 college football season ending in thrilling fashion tonight, there are now 235 days until Michigan kicks off the season at home vs App State.

CAN'T WAIT (Bart Scott Voice)

Let's hope the 2014 offseason treats us well.

 

EDIT: ESS EEE SEE goes down! Commence!

Having to root for an FSU team led by an alleged rapist who thinks God cares if he wins a football game was easy by comparison. ACC! ACC! ACC!

 finally gets some vindication.  His hand-picked successor, Jimbo Fisher, steps out from the shadow of his mentor, while the SEC looks to ESPN for hugs and reassurance.

to see 2 loss sec teams get considered for the playoff over 1 loss...anyone else. ESPN just couldn't be impartial pre, during and post game. It's not quite CBS level but the way they drool over the conference is so terribly influential.

Did anyone else notice that during all the pregame coverage the coverage was skewed vastly in the direction of Auburn. I felt like they didn't even freakin talk about FSU for a solid hour there before kickoff.

ESPN and CBS are shameless homers for the SEC. I can't wait till next year they're advocating for 3 SEC teams in the playoff.

I so so hope that the SEC starts a streak of not winning the national title so every can do me a favor and STFU.

Anyone else notice how Musberger called  Auburn's season one of  the most  remarkable in SEC history? Not Auburn or college football history - SEC history.

I don't want to be a debbie-downer, but what is stopping ESPN and CBS from being all like: "the SEC is awesome and all four teams in the playoffs should be SEC teams...."

I can see a scenario where every year we have two SEC teams in the playoff, bettering their chances to win. OR I can even see a possibility of THREE SEC teams making it one year if there is a year where there is only one undefeated team (Alabama) and two 1-loss teams, one from SEC west and one from SEC east. And god forbid, the only non-SEC team is from the American conference..... I would prefer a tournament format like that of the FCS (formerly I-AA) to just a bastardized BCS with a tiny playoff.

So the SEC will have to face endless stories about the "SEC drought" and then face the dreaded mid-season questions as to whether the league has "returned to glory."

There was a drought this year for the SEC though. Keep in mind that 25% of the NFL draft was from the SEC. The East alone had 32 picks and the West had 31 to tie with the entire ACC conference.

Until the mix of top players changes you will more than likely see people talking about the SEC as the top power conference. Of course a few years back to back of high draft classes could in theory leave the cupboards bare. That is assuming the recruiting doesn't allow them to reload each year.

I would put even money on lucky plays getting them past Georgia and Alabama which is why they played for the championship and not Bama. They were not the best team in the conference would be the argument most likely to get callers which is his job after all.

Also, when Auburn scored their last touchdown to go ahead, Brent said something about looking like they had one more miracle left. Really? Scoring a late touchdown to go ahead after blowing a big lead is a miracle?

Here's the final score for the major conferences during Bowl Season:

B1G: 2-5 (1-1 BCS Bowls)

ACC: 5-6 (2-0 BCS Bowls)

Big12: 3-3 (1-1 BCS Bowls)

Pac12: 6-3 (0-1 BCS Bowls)

SEC: 7-3 (0-2 BCS Bowls)

I hate looking at bowl records. I mean look at bowl games like the Alamo Bowl where Oregon got a favorable matchup with Texas so they should win. It's hard to look at these bowl records every year.
