My favorite argument in all of college football is the myth that everyone else would be .500 or so in the SEC. What is Georgia's second best win? Vanderbilt? Missouri? Because it sure as hell isn't Ole Miss or Auburn. Those teams couldn't get to a bowl game in the ACC. Does anyone remember that Georgia lost to home by a couple scores to Boise and lost in Tampa to Michigan St? What exactly has Georgia down outside the conference to suggest they should start each season highly ranked?
As a stats site it really is amazing to see how many people ignore them in other sports. Number 1 in the computers for a reason

Well, Texas obviously doesn't get to agree.
While I don't disagree too much with the sentiment...part of it is the grind of the SEC (or the Big 12 or even PAC-12, though I think the SEC grind is tougher) week in and week out that causes issues. Boise State has one big game a year. South Carolina had a stretch of Georgia, at LSU, at Florida
Why were they kicked out?
The problem with Wetzel (as it relates to his college football writing) is he should be writing about baseball, given how much he seems to hate everything about college football, and everything sucks.
since the big east will have 12 teams, the conference will be divided into two divisions. the division that temple will be in will include boise state, san diego state, houston, SMU, and memphis. isn't that wonderful.
Nobody seems to want any of the other members. I'd say they are fairly safe/stable for now, although mediocre. If all goes to plan they will be at 12 next year and 14 the year after. If they can entice BYU to join, they will have some decent "brands": Louisville, Cincy, Boise, BYU, Rutgers, South Florida, UConn....keep an eye on Central Florida that could surpass USF in short order.
I suppose it might raise the school's profile for application purposes, but it still seems like a high risk, low reward move for these schools.
Doesn't Ga. State also play games at the Georgia Dome for some really dumb reason.
Tulane also plays in the Superdome, yeah that makes sense.
Playing in an existing stadium instead of building your own sounds like the obvious thing to do for a marginal program.
Why are you saying these don't make sense? Playing in an existing stadium instead of building your own sounds like the obvious thing to do for a marginal program.
I may be crazy but if nd does go undefeated they might jump someone in the polls if all win out to that point.
Inge - the Rose Bowl may not have a Pac 12 eligible team if Oregon is in the title game, and with the first or second pick I think they fill their slot with the Irish. I can't see the Fiesta passing on ND, who knows?
I think for Bama to play ND, you'd have to have a different SEC team in the title game, which could happen I suppose.
Well then it has to be for the title game!
Can you drive applications being a joke? Georgia State is 1-10 this year. And moving up to FBS status next year? Sounds like a disaster.
Yes. Going from "no visibility whatsoever" to "a school with a program that you might start for" is a recruitment tool.
But is it worth the financial losses having a shitty Sun Belt program has?
I don't know. The admin says yes. More than a few folks in the city say no. The GSU2 program is not unfraught with controversy.
What exactly is the West Coast Offense? It seems to be a catch all term for 'shitty offense'.
They seem to have gotten worse over the course of the season. The FSU game should be telling. I don't think UF will win, but they have beaten some impressive teams this year, so maybe they will rise to the occasion again.
which is mismatches which are much greater at the collegiate level
