The SEC Gets Payback for the '97 Heisman

Respect for the SEC - What a Concept!

Sucks Doesn't it Michigan? Kinda like the '97 Heisman...That's right, We're still bitter! - Credit: MZone

I could hardly believe my own eyes as I logged on to yahoo sports (I don't support the evil empire) to see that The One and Righteous SEC Champion, the Florida Gators, would represent us in the National Title Game.

Holy Frijoles!!!

For what is often hailed as the Strongest Conference In the land, the SEC routinely gets shat upon by the National Media (read: ESPN/ABC/Disney) so I expected no less.

If you witnessed the gratuitous ESPN bro-mance leading up to the pseudo-championship game of USC vs. unranked, 5 loss UCLA on Saturday (it was mentioned right next to the SEC, ACC and Big XII Championship like we gave a damn) then you know the kind of suck-fest I'm referring to.

Alas, USC was exposed by yet another mediocre talent in the PAC-10.


Cry Me a river Hippies! (Note: They don't care about College football anyway...All they care about are doing drugs/abortions and/or acting like skanks...That's right, I said it.)

Whoah, didn't mean to get all political, but the concept of the PAC-1o disgust me.

The Case for Michigan:

1. The Wolverines only lost to the consensus #1 team in the nation, Ohio St, by 3 on the road

2. They beat an otherwise undefeated Wisconsin Team

3. They beat an otherwise one loss Notre Dame Team

The Case Against Michigan:

1. Ohio State relaxed in the fourth and let Michigan back in the Game (it wasn't as close as it appeared)

2. Wisconsin switched schedules with Boisie St and didn't beat a single ranked team on the way to 11-1. Wait, that's a fact. How's about this: Wisconsin didn't do a damn thing this season, except expose those ignant new clock rules for what they are...Which is crap...Which is nice.

3. Notre Dame is not a quality win.

"But they play such a strong schedule!"

No...No they don't.

Notre Dame Tangent...Irish, it's time for you to join a conference. You're not that special. Beating all the service academies is not as cool as it was back in the 1930's. Don't look now but you haven't won a bowl game in over a decade because you're constantly overmatched. Why? Because you rely on your name to get you in the door (sound familiar, Shula?) then you precede to crap the bed... every time.

And you thought Miami got reamed by LSU last Bowl Season? Just wait until Catholics Vs. Cajuns down on the Bayou. Yet another match up of SEC Might Vs Media Hype. Brady Quinn has a 45% chance of getting ripped in half (you ever seen Not Another Teen Movie?...Kinda like that Special kid). If you hate overblown BS and hype, you'll love this game. Enough about the Irish.

Back to Michigan...

4. My final point: If you don't win your conference, you don't deserve to dance (much like the Big XII Championship losers of the past)

The Case For Florida:

1. The Gators only loss was to a 2 loss Auburn team on the road

2. They beat three teams in the top 15 (UT, LSU, Ark)

3. They beat 9 Bowl eligible teams (6 wins or greater)

4. They Won the SEC

The Case Against Florida:

1. Tim Tebow Envy

2. Hair Gel (I'm not a Dapper Dan Man)

3. Florida isn't technically considered "Deep South," however Gainsville is somewhat North Florida so i guess they're cool. They aren't quite like the rest of The Family, but we love them anyway.

The choice is clear...Go Gators!
