By popular demand (actually just Reid) I want to open a thread for SEC football opinion. I'll start it off...
First the Dogs -- I realize there's a QB problem at Georgia, but explain the league-leading 22 dropped passes, the inability of small-armed defensive backs to make open-field tackles or correct reads, the miserable protection offered by the O-line, or the disastrous play selections in critical situations( throwing in the flat for 4 yards on third and 13)??? No wonder Georgia and Mark Richt are the most disappointing team and coach respectively in the SEC. How does one lose to Vanderbilt? How does one barely manage to beat Ole Miss and Miss St.? How hot will his seat be when Richt loses the next three out of four games...Florida(L), Kentucky(who knows?), Auburn(L), GaTech(L). That'll be 5 losses on the season and another trip to the Poulan-Weedeater Independence Bowl...does that bowl even exist anymore? If we lose 5, we should do the honorable thing and not accept any bowl invitation.
Florida -- I used to enjoy my hatred for Florida when Spurrier was there but now it's just empty, unsatisfying hatred.
Bama -- The Tide will never achieve greatness as long as fans insist on having a Bear protoge' for coach. There are no more Bear protoge's. Shula wasn't really an attractive coach when they hired him, he was simply the only guy still in football who had ties to Bear Bryant. Clinging to a dead guy for 25 years is a pitiful strategy for running a big-time SEC football program.
Auburn -- It's my favorite game of the year. I like Auburn except when they play Georgia and even then I can enjoy watching the game with Tiger fans. In my experience, Auburn and Georgia fans don't hate each other, we just enjoy the rivalry. Georgia fans hate Florida and Tennessee. We're ambivalent about Bama, we don't play them enough.
LSU -- Jemarcus Russell is not as good as everybody thinks he is. The draft will show that.
Kentucky, Vanderbilt, Arkansas, Ole Miss, Miss St., SC -- who cares? They're second teir SEC teams and their respective situations matter not to anybody but the fans unfortunate enough to have attended school there.
Consider this an open thread to discuss any SEC topic you wish. If we get a lot if input, I'll repost the comments in their entirety each Wednesday leading up to Saturday's games.
