Well at least this year it is, at least to me. I’ll admit I’m a little biased but most of the teams in the SEC have been playing very sloppy college football (and I believe NCAA football to be a bit messy in general). LSU barely wins on several occasions and is #5. What?! And all this talk about SEC being a tough conference so they deserve high ranking…poppycock!!! No one should pity a team because they suck in a tough conference, MAN UP!!!
I ranted on Facebook too in response to being told the SEC is tough: WAAAHHH!!! SEC is so tough!!! I play sloppy but since my conference is so tough I deserve high ranking! WAAAAHHH!!! My conference is tougher than TCU’s and Boise State’s those voters know that so they should give me higher ranking! Pity me!!!
Whew, that felt good.
But really, is this what happens when a conference has been on top for too long? Just making excuses and giving passes? Teams and conferences have ups and downs which should allow for others to do well and gain some notoriety. I guess I like variety, dynasties are boring to me. I want to see other teams do well and not just hear about Florida and Alabama. Maybe I have subconscious issue with the BCS ranking system that I need to explore. And I guess that puts me on the TCU, Boise State, Oregon, any non-SEC team bandwagon. Oh well, I’m fine with that.
Now, onto my Alabama rant. It gets personal here so if you want to stop reading now you can. I was so happy to see Alabama go down not once but twice. YES, redemption! Now let me explain, I used to work for the University of Alabama…’nuff said (I know, I don’t know what I was thinking). As a result I’m Miss Anti-Alabama (oh, I got stories) but it began with my disappointment in Nick Saban and his team when Alabama gave up in the second half in last season’s Rose Bowl. I was so disgusted! Respect Texas enough to not act like you had everything wrapped up in just the first half. But of course I couldn’t have this discussion with anyone because it was Roll Tide all the way, they could do no wrong. However, I do love Nick Saban, that dude is hilarious. He is so dead serious all the time and can cut you with his words. I loved his press conferences and sound bites on the local news = instant comedy.
Anyway, War Eagle, I say! I hope Auburn wins the Iron Bowl. Although Cam Newton…well, that’s another post.
I’ve been waiting to get that off my chest. Thanks for letting me share. *end of rant* I know I’m going to get fussed at for this one. SEC fans are die hard. Let me say I’m happy to be back in ACC country, it’s where I belong.
