They have losses for having played other SEC teams, lol. Using the term, "over-hyped", is problematic because the odds-makers do it every year based on probability theory.

As good as Clemson is, it's a reminder of Boise State's schedule. Modest schedule makes for lots of wins through the season. Good news is that their roster seems to be 100% healthy as a result...so that may help them.

I continue to dis-agree with your premise that counting ranked teams played from end-of-season ranking is proper, since winning teams, by definition, are reducing the rankings of those that they beat.

That's just a symptom of the SEC getting too much credit for past performances and getting alot of highly ranked teams in the early season polls.
This. There is Alabama, and then there is the rest of the average at best SEC.

Well we did not hit on much this season and got rid of a pretty decent coach. SC didn't and Florida as well. But I will say to you Bama fans (my second favorite team in the SEC) like my old pappy used to say to me when I got a little proud of myself, "Son, the sun don't shine on the same dog's butt all the time". He was right.

Looking forward to bowl season starting on Saturday........

I've actually become a big fan of the 3rd tier bowl games. For many of the players, it is the only national exposure they get each year, and they play their hearts out for thier families and friends at home that get to watch them on tv. Yes, some of the team records may be dismal, but the effort of the individuals is often better than the big games. I wish I lived near one of these bowl games, I would be one of the 500 fans in the stands.

I find many of the 2nd tier games is where teams and efforts fall flat. Egos may have taken a hit by not getting into the big bowls, players are over confident, and and individual effort may be lacking, but that often creates some big upsets.

As for the big games, well, at least we now have a playoff. But, it is time the FBS schools play only FBS schools. The major conferences now have enough schools, there really is no reason to even play outside thier conferences. If every team had to play a competitive team each and every week, there would be a lot less no loss / 1 loss teams each year.

If it is about money to he small schools, have the FBS schools put money in a pot, and divvy it up to other small conferences.

I have a theory that many Heisman winners fall flat on thier face in the pros because they have never had to practice or play 100% week in and week out from the time they started playing in Jr. High. They were always on dominant teams that had half of thier games against completely inferior opponents that required little practice or effort on their part to win. And then it just carries over to college, where the major teams only have to really prepare and play at thier best for 3 or 4 games a year.......

In any case, enjoy the bowl games!

So`the bowl season starts tomorrow. The last couple years I have taken my rig and toys to Glamis right after Christmas, so I missed most of the bowl games. This year I am planning on some quality couch time and viewing a lot of them. I need to keep on eye on my game picks and million dollar venture.

----Topic Change Alert!!!------
Sam, did you catch the Husker volleyballers vs. Kansas last night in the national semifinals? Now they are matched against those dang Longhorns for the natty on Saturday night (ESPN2). GBR!!!

Here's a weird stat: Kansas is now 0-87-1 all-time against the Huskers in volleyball. Talk about banging your head on a brick wall!

JeffAZ, I didn't miss the Husker volleyballers last night. Way past my bedtime when it was over too. Kansas could be something to deal with in the future and obviously Texas as well. Nebraska is loosing two of their starting seniors but everyone else is back. Also have a hot shot player that had to set out this year because of transfer rules. Should be a good match with Texas tomorrow evening. Go HUSKERS!

I did not see the WVB game but read about it this morning.

Off topic, bought a roll of duct tape online a few weeks ago. I also bought one for a UCLA fan friend and sent it to him prior to the bowl selections...go figure!
