As if the SEC has been dominate in post season the past 2 years? Wisconsin was neck in neck with what will be the #2 team in the country (TCU). If they don’t miss an easy FG they win the game. Ohio State took care of the other BCS SEC team…. Yes Alabama killed M. State. That was disappointing as was the 0-5 Saturday. Michigan wasn’t even a bowl team this year and Penn State was just avg.
With that said, the NFL is the premier league in all sports. A former Heisman Trophy winner (Jason White) couldn’t even make a single NFL team a few years back since the league is that good.

Caleb ole buddy,
You said, “As if the SEC has been dominate in post season the past 2 years?”
Did one of your children write this?
Five of the last seven BCS champs are SEC with another one playing tonight.
Not sure what”the NFL is the premier league in all sports” proves. Enjoy your Bears and go Auburn!

Steven, how about winner gets a free book from the loser?
Posted by Steven Holley on January 10, 2011 at 1:47 am
haha, that’s exactly what I was thinking!

I’ll send you my address, War Eagle and good game.

Too bad Auburn cheated. haha, just kidding.
Good game. I just wish Oregon could have at least displayed the offense that makes them so fun to watch.

We have had this fun exchange before. Year in and year out the SEC is one of the best conferences in FB. The SEC is just not head and shoulders better then all the other conferences. From year to year the BIG 10, Big 12, Pac 10 etc can be just as deep.
THIS YEAR- the SEC is 4-5. Wow, that is impressive! I guess my kids have decent logic. Andrea is their teacher so i’ll give the her credit :)
The NFL footnote just help puts things into perspective for all our FB readers. :) Sort of like the NCAA Div 2 champ (E. Washington) in comparison with the winner of the Div 1 champ (Oregon/Auburn).
Now i realize that the big BOWL games mean alot more then the little bowl games. Iowa’s win over Missouri was impressive. Alabama’s win over MSU was big. Ohio State’s win over Arkansas was big for the big 10, etc, etc.
On a serious note- ENJOY the game my friend! May the best team win.

Paul and Caleb: Speaking of (NFL) football, I had a proud moment as a father yesterday while watching my beloved Packers pull out a great win over the Eagles. At the beginning of a play in the first half, the ball is snapped, a flag is thrown, the whistle blows, and the play is stopped. Then my four-year-old, who is sitting next to me on the couch, blurts out with a hint of irritation: “false start.” Julie and I must be doing something right; brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it.

Matt, love it-
My 3 year old when seeing the Bear C says “cago Bears!”
Now if GB and Chicago can win and meet in the NFC Championship game…that would be GREAT!

Now my 3 year old says, “Go Tim Tebow!” He’s the only thing the Broncos got right now. Not even sure Elway as VP of Operations can do much for the team.

“Year in and year out the SEC is one of the best conferences in FB. The SEC _West_ is…head and shoulders better then all the other conferences.”
Fixed it for you.

I am a converted SEC fan. Going to the Swamp at UF the past three years has made me finally admit, the SEC is the best Conference. I have see UF play LSU, Arkansas, Kentucky, and U of Miami and have been amazed at the speed of play. I still miss ol’ 15 running down the field, but it is no contest.
The BIG has 3 of the 4 largest stadiums, but their style of football is boring. Even when my Gators lose it is ok to me when it is a SEC team.
The past 10 years has been dominated by the SEC, no doubt.

Paul- congrats! Two teams that were very closely matched….the game illustrated my point beautifully about the major conferences. The water down their must still be piped in from the same swamp.
At least we stand together for the gospel. ;)

I appreciate your fortitude, it’s fun to read. I know you will not be moved but here is something worth pondering then ask yourself why it is so. Auburn has now beaten seven teams that are currently ranked in the top 25 of the Associated Press poll and BCS standings. This is the difference between the conferences amongst many other things. Bottom line is talk of conferences doesn’t matter when year in and year out the one standing at the end is in the SEC. I’m out.

We were rooting for our SEC ‘friends’ (until we have to play them) last night. Good game and Auburn almost gave it back to Oregon when they were in the drivers seat.
This is by no means the schellacking that I thought, but maybe the PAC 10 is getting better. Maybe even better than the BIG 10 (for proof of this see the Ohio State vs. Gators in 2007— 41 to 14 was the score???)
Interesting point made by the broadcasters last night. Herbstreet said that all people who love the Pros need to go through their defensive squads on their teams and see how many SEC players are on the line. For you Caleb, the Bears have one SEC player and one BIG 10 player on their roster in this position.
Good game last night.

Which one matters? It’s like you’re arguing for the Dan Marino award. I’m waving the white flag. I surrender, all your Northern conferences are superior in every way except in winning it all. Take a chill and War Eagle.
Posted by Paul Lamey on January 11, 2011 at 2:37 pm
On second thought, I just realized that you highlighted the FOUR Big Ten teams in the top 25. Does this mean that the SEC is still inferior since it has a measly SIX in the top 25?
Posted by Caleb Kolstad on January 11, 2011 at 11:41 pm
It sounds better when you say 3 Big 10 teams in the TOP 10 ;)
Posted by Chris Pixley on January 12, 2011 at 9:12 am
Unless of course someone correctly points out that that poll was released prior to any of these teams encountering legitimate competition outside of their own conference in the bowl games. When they did, they were defeated 67% of the time. Funny how statistics work, isn’t it?
Posted by Caleb Kolstad on January 15, 2011 at 11:30 pm
If we take care of our end of this deal next Sunday is going to be a great day!!!!
Posted by Caleb Kolstad on January 17, 2011 at 11:17 am
Bears vs Pack it doesn’t get any better than this. Go BEARS!
