    By unbeatbeatable, I don't mean agains Jacksonville State.

    Lol, the SEC championship is always a better game than the National championship, that's why it's a joke how the SEC is so better than everyone else. Though the score was close, it was evident last year that Auburn was on a different level, despite Oregons speed.

    A perfect example:

    2006 SEC CHAMP: Florida 38-28 Arkansas

    2006 NAT CHAMP: Florida 41-14 OHIO ST.

    And I remember Ohio St. people talked bad about the entire SEC, saying that they had the best OSU team ever, lolololol

    I know a huge Florida fan who has readily admitted he knows OSU didn't even come close to playing their best and anyone who's not lying to themselves would say the same thing. They quite frankly picked the worst time possible to play like crap, happens to every team.

    As for Oregon and Auburn, Auburn was NOT on a "different level" than Oregon, that's foolish. Cam Newton got exposed just like he'll be in the NFL. If it wasn't for Nick Fairley Oregon wins that game.

    OSU might not have played their best but they were not as good as FLorida, and it was quite obvious.

    And Newton got exposed? He still had over 325 yards of total offense. Granted, it wasn't his best game (which happens alot in the title game because of the layoff), but saying he got "exposed" is not accurate at all.

    I would have been very interested to see how OSU would have done vs. Florida if it was just a week or 2 after our last game. We definitely got too c*cky. But for the Heisman winner to be outplayed by Chris "noodle arm" Leak is just embarrassing.

    You know...

    If only every other conference had all the prospects in their back yard, lowered their standards, and cheated in order to get them...


    Your dominance is about as notable as Nixon's presidency.

    So when OSU plays like crap it is just written off as "well they didn't come close to playing their best" and I guess that is no big deal, happens to every team.

    But when Cam Newton has a sub par game it is because he is "exposed".

    Nice job of staying objective.

    Didn't Florida spot you 7 points by letting Ginn JR score an opening kickoff TD? So, 41-7 vs your actual team.. :lol: :lol:

    The SEC definately has recruiting advantages due to the South putting out a ton of prospects and obviously the weather helps too. But, a couple of things. The ACC is largely a Southern conference that doesn't matchup with the SEC, and the PAC 10 and Big 12 have quite a few teams with good weather and prospects too, but outside of USC and Oregon, , Texas and OU, the Pac 10 and Big 12 really doesn't have a lot of great football schools.

    Two, the SEC does not cheat any more than any other conference. Right now we have USC on probation, Oregon under investigation, and OSU about to get hammered. Hell, even Boise state was sited for lack of institutional control, so that is not something unique to the SEC in the least.

    And, the SEC's admissions are no worse than any other conference. Most of the power conferences are made up of large state schools that will lower their admission standards for athletes, just like the SEC does. For instance, in 2008 the average SAT score for Michigan's football team was 997, where as the overall student body average was over 1200. The biggest gaps between athletes and overall student body are at the public schools with the highest admission standards such as Georgia Tech, UVA, UNC, etc etc. To say that is unique to the SEC is also simply wrong.

    The reason the SEC is better at football is pretty obvious and simple. Outside of Ky and Vandy, fooball is what every school cares about and what the fanbases care about, and all of them are willing to pay big money to get and keep a coach.

    The ACC cranks out more talent than the SEC does though...

    And the SECs standards are down right embarrassing. They just brought them down even further to the same as Sun Belt's, I believe.

    Outside of Vanderbilt... and how coincidental is it that they suck at football?
