    Your SEC butthurt is definitely showing.

    I don't see how a last second national title loss is a "slaughtering". Laughable. I guess in your world Michigan was slaughtered by Iowa and Nebraska last year.

    If by some chance Jake Locker suffers an injury early in the season again i think it would be a bad decision to throw Whitehurst in as starter. There are several reasons. The first is based on past play in both the preseason and regular season Whitehurst hasn't exactly shown he can do much of anything. Whitehurst coming in would not mean a good outcome.

    If the team still has a chance why not throw Mettenberger in and see what happens? The team could also see if Mettenberger is worth keeping or not and if they need to spend an early pick in the next draft on a QB or not. There have been rookie QB's that have come in and played well and that could happen with Mettenberger.

    Best case scenario is Mettenberger plays well and the team can spend their early draft picks on offensive weapons or upgrading the defense. Worst case scenario would be Mettenberger not working out but at least the team could cut their losses and be prepared to draft a QB in the next draft.

    I personally hope Locker plays well and stays healthy we end the five year playoff drought here.

    Really hanging on to that, huh?

    Regardless... the SEC lost. Both their best teams. And their next best teams were middle of the pack Big 12 teams...

    Eat it, son.

    UT has one. Michigan has zero never even made it to the game. Michigan totally irrelevant during bcs era. Michigans most noteworthy bcs era history was losing to app state.


    How many did the sec as a conference win again? You butthurt? Of course you are
