The SEC Really Does Suck
The Southeastern Conference is in shambles! Alabama lost a football game this year, and they’re the only respectable team in the conference. The rest of the league just hires Nick Saban disciples and destroys itself from within. Guys like Kirby Smart, with no head coaching experience, will never cut it.
Case in point: only two of the College Football Playoff’s four teams are from the SEC.
But consider the “down” SEC’s bowl slate as a whole:
|Bowl||Date||SEC School (Conference Rank)||Opponent (Conference, Rank)|
|Rose Bowl||1-Jan||Georgia (1)||Oklahoma (Big 12 no. 1)|
|Sugar Bowl||1-Jan||Alabama (2)||Clemson (ACC no. 1)|
|Peach Bowl||1-Jan||Auburn (3)||Central Florida (AAC no. 1)|
|Citrus Bowl||1-Jan||LSU (4)||Notre Dame (Independent no. 1)|
|TaxSlayer Bowl||30-Dec||Mississippi State (5)||Louisville (ACC no. 5)|
|Outback Bowl||1-Jan||South Carolina (6)||Michigan (Big 10 no. 6)|
|Belk Bowl||29-Dec||Texas A&M (7)||Wake Forest (ACC no. 7)|
|Music City Bowl||29-Dec||Kentucky (8)||Northwestern (Big 10 no. 4)|
|Texas Bowl||29-Dec||Missouri (9)||Texas (Big 12 no. 4)|
SEC teams are consistently scheduled “up” relative to their peers. I guess that’s because the conference is so weak.
I mean, can you imagine if the show was on the other foot? Like what if the Big 12’s 9th-best team had to play the SEC’s 4th-best team? Baylor vs. LSU would be a hate crime.
That’s all I got/
