    Alabama was the only contender for the SEC this past year. We have to count Auburn by default... since they spoiled Alabama's season.

    and what happened to them? Oh. One was slaughtered by an ACC team. The other slaughtered by a Big 10 team.

    Lately it's only been 3 teams: Alabama, LSU, and Florida. Most the time it's due to one player: Tebow, Cam Newton, etc.

    ... that's not a good thing.

    And it's not really true, either.

    I wouldn't qualify A&M or Missouri's performance as awesome.

    And it's quite entertainng when Ole Miss plays Bama close, or Georgia scares LSU, or when one of the teams pulls it out for the upset, etc. The games are exciting and fan base is jacked. It is a good thing.

    And to define "awesome"?

    Missouri just played for the SEC Championship...

    Texas A&M went 11-2 their first season in... after being 7-6 the prior year in the Big 12.

    Yeah, that'd be considered pretty awesome by most teams' standards...

    But you know... I remember hearing "He wont be able to do that vs SEC defenses".

    Whoops.

    Why?... SC hasn't been relevant for a decade despite their over-hyping every preseason.

    I'm a Locker fan but I like Zach, he seems like he has it in him to quarterback in this league. I get the vibe that he's taking it seriously and we all know he's got the gun. Barring any injury of course, i think he was a big steal. If Jake is 100% , i think he's gonna ball but thats a big IF. Wish we had a better emergency interim qb than Whitehurst, although he seems like a great teammate and maybe can rally the troops a little. Once again we are relying on Jake's health or we're probably gonna hit a bad streak and I don't want to feel like the damn season is over when it just started. That my friend would SUCK.
