The thing about this week is the SEC one is the only one that matters in the national title race at all... So, why shouldn't they talk about that a lot?

Also, the bloom got taken off the ACC's title game last weekend.... But, I guess they should at least mention the game......

Did anyone ever mention that the BCS process which tells us that 6 of the top 10 teams are from the SEC is the same BCS process which tells us that NIU is one of the 15 best teams in the country?

clearly we can blindly trust the BCS polls.

Meh.


LSU was just the first victim of a Clemson team that finally decided to grow up.

As I have said since before last season, we aren't a complete team yet. That comes in 2013.

RE: SECSPN
The fun part is the talking heads making themselves look foolish, with all their attempt to justify why the Colossus SEC is looking so pathetic in the bowls. Most knowledgeable fans are going to write them all off as being incompetent to do their jobs, which most of them are. The best thing to happen now would be Oklahoma, Pitt, and Notre Dame winning. Go ACC!

RE: SECSPN
It makes me so happy to see the SEC dropping these bowl games and playing close against "lesser" teams. Some SEC schools play nobody all year except in conference teams and at the end of the season they have 6 top 10 teams... "They beat (SEC Opponent)! And that's the justification for ranking them so highly...Ugh maybe this off year might force them to play people and not just ride the "SEC" name.

ESPN's Bob Valvano tear's a near one over SEC bias by ESPN and everybody else.







Safe to say he won't be getting promoted far at ESPN now.......

RE: SECSPN
After an entire off-season hyping it, and then a week furiously masturbating to it, ESPN has their little Texas A&M vs Alabama media fest. But what do they show during the 7 PM prime time slots AFTER that game is done airing? ESPN2: Auburn vs Mississippi State. ESPN: Vanderbilt vs South Carolina.

Boring conference games in the SEC.

* At least for the Columbus, OH market, as that is where I am this weekend.

The REAL reason ESPN was eager to start the SEC channel - their current contract with the SEC virtually forces ESPN to show an SEC game in the late night slot most weekends... and those games ARE boring.

RE: SECSPN
What would you guys have shown instead? The Big 10's insistence on not playing conference games early in the season is a big part of the reason that the SEC is getting spotlighted. The ACC and PAC only have a handful of early season conference matchups, and they have been sucky. Plus, the SEC is ESPN's product now... why wouldn't they promote and show their product? They are paying heavily for it because people watch it more than other products. I guarantee if Oregon-Stanford would have played at night this past weekend, it would have taken the premium slot. Bama/TAMU, Vandy/USC, and Auburn/Miss. St. all have SEC divisional implications, and Bama/TAMU had BCS implications. The bottom line is that non-SEC conferences need to get with the times and do a better job of spreading out their premier games throughout the entire season.

There were at least 6 OOC games between the Pac-12 and Big Ten which could've been in prime time. My problem with ACC scheduling is we'll have one really great weekend and then one really bad weekend, instead of have 1 or 2 great games every week. So, I guess we agree on that.

15 weeks this year, 2 games a week is 30 matchups. Can you come up with 30 interesting ACC matchups out of this years schedule? 15 matchups considering, which teams don't play each other because the divisions are too big. Would you really want to move any of the rivalry week games? I don't think I could put together a schedule with that many marquee games from the ACC schedule.

IMO, this deserves its own thread - so I'm creating one.

Today's ESPNU CFB podcast ... Ivan Maisel to Dinnich: "This must seem like so much fun for you having been stuck with this league the last few years. ... Is it more enjoyable or is it just more work?"


It is not Dinnich who has been stuck with the ACC. It is ACC fans who have been stuck with Dinnich.

Andrea seems like a bit of an upgrade at least.

Lets just talk money . Acc got a great package for Espn and lots of perks for 20 million per school ..no other network world matxh, if u leave them for lack of coverage who loses acc schools who get 20 million per school then the conference is subject for folks leaving ..bottom line it's always better to take the money period.[/b]
