100 Days of SEC Dominance: Day 74 – BCS At Large Giants


The SEC is the only conference where you can go 10-2 and not even get an at large BCS bid, let alone a trip to the championship game.

BUT!  Let’s shoot out some fun facts about the ACC!

1.)  Last season, the ACC championship was between Florida State and the SUN BOWL CHAMPIONS Georgia Tech. Seriously? Sure, sure, NCAA sanctions, blah blah.

2.)  In 2011, it was between 11-1 Virginia Tech, and 10-2 Clemson.  Clemson won only to be completely DESTROYED in the Orange Bowl, 70-33.

3.)  In 2010, it was between 9-3 Florida State, and 10-2 Virginia Tech.

Are we seeing a trend here?

The last SEC team to be 9-3 and go to the SEC Championship was 2010 when South Carolina went 5-3 in the East.  Down year, yes, forgivable, not really.

In nine of fourteen BCS Championship games since it’s induction in 1998, the SEC Champion has played in and WON the game.

It’s great to be a Gamecock,
JB Signing off!
