The most popular chant this weekend at college football stadia around the country was S-E-C. Tennessee fans used it late in a win over NCSU. Alabama fans used it early and often in a blowout over Michigan. Auburn fans used it early and perhaps not late in a loss to Clemson. Wait, are SEC schools allowed to lose in non-conference games? I thought the NCAA banned that.
I am glad that my alma mater is in the best football conference in the nation. It’s going to help the program even though that may not reflect in the win-loss record. I’m not rooting for a conference.
There is no way that I would root for Oklahoma or Texas (especially Texas) to do well outside of playing the Tigers, so why would I root for Alabama or Georgia? That’s just dumb as far as I’m concerned.
The SEC love is bordering on pathological at this point, but until another team knocks them off for that crystal trophy, we’re going to have to deal with it.
I was happy to see Georgia struggle briefly with Buffalo this weekend. I still think they are 7-10 points better than Missouri. At least this game’s in Columbia and it will be the craziest crowd at least since the Oklahoma upset a couple of years ago. The fact that the Game Day crew might be at my alma mater is flabbergasting. During my freshman year, Missouri lost to Texas A&M 73-0. I doubt many SEC schools can relate to that.
