The best one of those Hitler You Tube videos was Bobby Lowder's office at Auburn. If that one's still up be sure to watch until the very end.

and the low ratings in the championship game. i could care less about the bcs championship anymore. the bcs is squarely stacked in the sec's favor.

the games are mostly played in sec's back yard. they aren't neutral field games. play the championship game at soldier field and see how well the sec does.

Please, do you really think the SEC would fare much worse at Soldier Field? I don't think so.

How long has it been since the Big Ten was relevant? 10 years? 20 years? 30 years? Since the days of Red Grange?

bama, this year, probably wouldn't. they were that good. but i bet LSU has trouble against a good defensive team in near freezing temps. if the sec had to play in minnesota or wisconsin, or michigan in november... there would be a noticeable difference in records. the sec can have all the bcs bullcrap they want. the rest of the country is tired of it too. hence the lack of viewers. and it's not haters. they're in each other's pockets. that's why the big 10 and pac 12 are now working together. they'll now put each other on tv from Pennsylvania to California on a regular basis. the money they will be making will dwarf anything that sec currently has going. you'll see the sec and some other conference do the same thing quite soon.

my initial point though is sec get to, by virtue of geographical location to no fault of their own, play bowl games in their back yard against teams who travel anywhere from 1000-3000 miles away, for the most part, and call them neutral field.

i get it... people south of kentucky are afraid of cold weather.

Ohio State played for the national championship in '07 and '06. they didn't win, but that's not what you asked. so, 5 years by those standards.

Urban Meyer will bring back Ohio State in 3 years or so, and they might win against an SEC team then.

Yeah, if you never have a dog in the fight you don't much care who wins.

that's not 100% how it is, though i would put it at 30-50%. the rest is just excepting the deck stacked against you. at some point you have to just go, "it's a club they don't want us in anyway". it's a hard cycle to break right now for anyone not in the sec. great players come out of the south. sec teams play in national championship games. why leave the area? i wouldn't. i'm just being a realist here, not a hater... probably a little bit of an envyer.

but if you just wanna keep throwing dumbass sayings at me... that's cool. you can go back to being the only one posting in this thread.

take care, guy.

Cokebeard is just recycling the same old garbage that Woody Hayes and Bo Schembecler used to throw out every time they'd go out to the Rose Bowl and get their heads handed to them. Why do we have to play the game in California? Why do we have to play on the Pac 10's turf? Why can't we play the game in cold weather? Those Pac 10 officials screwed us again. At least Big Ten fans are consistent. I'll give them that.

I thought it sounded familiar.

I am anxious to see how Meyer will affect Ohio States football program, has to be nothing but positive.

I wouldn't be surprised to see USC back in the title game next year. I would expect they would get support to prevent another all SEC game.
