Can we please stop using LSU as a quality win for the SEC? The Tigers have lost 3 of their last four games, and if not for a huge comeback against Troy, it would be 4 losses in a row for LSU. All in all, it is time to start looking at the SEC for what it is...an average conference. Yes, you got that right, they are no where near the quality and depth of the past two seasons. Everyone is so high on Florida right now, but do we really know how good they are? Their only loss was at HOME to Mississippi. They are the only one loss team right now with a home loss, yet because they play in the SEC they get a free pass. Alabama has yet to beat anyone of note. We thought Clemson was good...they aren't, but they did get their 7th win today against one of the SEC's "better" teams, South Carolina. The jury is really still out on Georgia because every time they play a decent team, they get blown out. The Dawgs just lost to an ACC team AT HOME, pretty bad in my opinon. Chew on that SEC fans, the conference that has been everyone's doormat is beating one of your supposed best teams. Over in the ACC, congrats to Virginia Tech in beating Virginia to head to the ACC title game.
Not a pretty game, but really has any ACC game been pretty this season? Not at all, it is a conference that week to week anything can happen. They will play either Boston College or Florida State. In the Big 12 South, everyone has their eyes on tonight's game with Oklahoma State and Oklahoma. Let me just say this, if you vote Texas Tech in the title game you should be ashamed of yourself. There should be no way that a team who lost by 34 points should even sniff the national title game. Plus they have no out of conference wins of note. Of Oklahoma, Texas, and Texas Tech, only the Sooners have notable out of conference wins against TCU and Big East Champion Cincinnati. Sorry Longhorn fans, but if the Sooners win tonight, they should be Big 12 Championship bound if we are considering BCS Standings.
My last thought is this...if you don't win your conference, you should not play for the national title. Pretty simple thought here...if you are not good enough to even win your conference how can you say you are the best in the country? So that means, if Oregon State wins tonight, sorry USC, you can't play for the title. Same goes with the loser of the SEC title game, and who ever gets left out of the Big 12 title game.
