Arkansas loses to UL-Monroe as a 30 point favorite. SEC! SEC! SEC!

They wil acknowledge the "heroic" effort put forth by a team competing in an "SEC environment" and then diminish the win with details of player injuries and/or turnovers causing the outcome.

They will then show that Arkansas outplayed their opponent statistically and though the scoreboard may prove different the SEC was, really, the winner here.

is going to be great. Between the Arkansas, Nebraska, & Wisconsin losses; Penn State's kicking heartbreak; & Missou and Texas A&M's harsh welcomes to the SEC there is going to be a ton of great stuff for TWIS this week.  I can't wait.

AT HOME! lmfao. Hope Mizzou pulls it off against Georgia, too. I know South Carolina, Arrr-kansas, and Georgia are overrated this year, but until they lose they stay in the top 10. *facepalm* If we were top 10 and lost to the best in the country and dropped to 19 then they should go unranked now having lost at home to a Sun Belt team.

We're making that a verb/adjective now?  Nice!   I'd give you an upvote if I had the points to do so!  I love seeing an SEC team choke.

Anyone notice how ARK was #8 this week?  If the #8 team next week loses, there's apparently a curse on the slot in the standings this year.

Just an FYI, UL-Monroe beat Alabama in Nick Saban's first year back in 2007. This loss will not dent the SEC's image one bit. No one talks about that Bama loss anymore. It will be forgotten by years end when the media is talking up how awesome the SEC is.

ESPN of course has the Wisconsin loss next to Arkansas on the front page as "upsets".  Becuase you know, losing to another BCS school clearly the same as losing to the Sun Belt...
