They have 12 teams in conference which is more opportunities to get into bowl games. On top of that, like I mentioned, many of those necessary wins to get bowl eligible come from beating down cupcakes who come for a pay day.


While all true, they still beat good/great out of conference opponents in bowls; hence the fact that they as a conference have the highest win percentage of all conferences in bowls.

By the way, Cowboy Classic next year will be a blast.


I like watching big games at the beginning of the season like the VT/Boise St and UNC/LSU this year so I look forward to watching the Oregon/LSU game next year. I wish more teams would do them like they do in College Basketball. But all these schools a) don't want to play away without a huge payout and b) are afraid to hurt their season. They can't all be like my alum, FSU, playing a great out of conference schedule (Oklahoma, BYU, and Florida) ;).

If you still want to call me an "SEC Homer", let look at our past FBS national champions...
2009 - Alabama
2008 - Florida
2007 - LSU
2006 - Florida


Well yeah, when the system is biased in favor of traditional powers with big money programs, that's what happens.
But when his drinking and lusting and his hunger for power became known to more and more people, the demands to do something about this outrageous man became louder and louder.

So you are stating that Texas, Oklahoma, and Ohio State are all bad teams and didn't deserve their shot for a championship those seasons? :roll:

It's unfortunate for us. In CBB, there's no penalty for losing a game since you have a playoff. In CFB FBS, where "the regular season is a playoff" (but it's not), a loss is pretty death for a national championship (in most cases). This is all old news, but there's no incentive for the Ohio States, LSUs, and Texas of the college football world to schedule other contenders or non-contenders (TCU/BSU) when they unfairly start at the top of the polls every season (just look at Texas and Florida this season). Ohio State is most guilty of this in recent memory in my opinion and they totally didn't deserve to play in the BCS title game against Florida in 2006. Their best win was against Texas who ended up losing 2 more games. That victory against Michigan was hollow given how USC dismantled that team in the Rose Bowl. It should've been USC vs. Florida (USC was #1/#2 in the human polls).

If they just did away with preseason polls and didn't have polls until 4 weeks later, everything would be fine. But sadly they need every dollar they can get (COME WATCH #1 Alabama (undeserving) vs. #213 Delaware Community College!!!)

Props to Oregon and LSU for scheduling that game. It'll at least quiet down the SEC/Pac-10 debate a slight bit (microscopic bit that is). Shouldn't be any griping about Oregon's schedule next season (LSU and Nevada on the slate, 1 more unknown for non-conference).

As much as I would love to see that, I just see the voters finding a way to screw TCU. I mean TCU has a bigger BCS point differential then I thought they did over BSU. So who knows, it's not over yet, but Auburn can still win, but they have to score on this drive.

Unfortunately, Boise will probably jump TCU if they beat Nevada. Rolling over New Mexico won't do anything to help TCU. And even if Auburn and Oregon lose, the BCS will still probably put LSU or Auburn in the NC game.

Yeah. That excessive celebration call was particularly terrible. If it were anyone but Fairley they wouldn't have called it.

While I agree with that, the computers hate BSU, but in the human polls, they are ranked higher. Its not over in the Bama game, they are now trrailing by 10, but either way I don't see an AQ team making it.

Auburn skates by again.

Man, Alabama deserved to lose that game with how awful they were in the red zone. That fumble by Ingram for a touchback, the drop by Richardson that was a TD (they kicked a FG), and other miscues.

Cleanest game I've seen Auburn play all season. However, still pissed about that unsportsmanlike conduct call.

Say what you will about Auburn's defense but their second half has been absolutely outstanding nearly every game this season. I don't know what kind of adjustments are being made in the locker room but something is done right. Too bad it just can't be done right in the first half as well.

Wow... saw the clip package. How do you miss what pretty much equals an extra point in the center of the field, not once but twice. I think going forward Boise St will learn to give a scholorship for a good kicker :lol:
