Topic: SEC Sports Rule
Well, well, well...I guess all the sports pundits are eating their words right about now with LSU firmly atop the NCAA Football standings.
Year after year, the SEC produces a conference with such depth and talent. Finally, this year, with the exception of two losses (Florida and Arkansas) during bowl season the sports world will have to take notice. The SEC had the most teams selected for bowl participation this year as well and were able to out perform the other conferences by a 7 to 2 margin. Many of the teams winning by more than one touchdown.
However, let's take a look at those two losses, first up, Arkansas. Truth be told, they should have never been playing Missouri. Missouri should have been in the Sugar Bowl against Georgia. Might that have changed the outcome of that game? Perhaps, but it would have been a much more evenly matched game and would have given Hawaii the opportunity to match up with Arkansas making THAT a better game as well. As for the Florida game, well, I'm a little disappointed in the Gators, but with all the emotion surrounding Michigan, it isn't that surprising that they were able to pull off the upset and reclaim a season that began so dismally.
The 2007 football season is finally over and it was certainly a banner year for the SEC...let's hope basketball season follows suit.
