    Actually, I'm kinda enjoying watching you smear dog poo on your face while posturing like "that'll teach 'em something".

    Perhaps not. But it certainly squares with "lack of institutional control" and "football Łber alles."

    OSU owns almost 10% of "those".

    Look, I don't derive any real joy out of bashing OSU. Just hosing off a poo-covered lemming so he doesn't dirty up the place. Otherwise, his antics are good for a laugh.

    And lets be honest. Nick Saban cut his "compliance" teeth while a head coach in the Big Ten.

    Is it like this with fans of all SEC teams, or is it just a Redszone thing?
    And yet this thread - the SEC thread for those scoring at home - is littered with OSU/B1G fans justifying their team and conference. Do all Ohio State fans have a Napoleonic Complex, or is it just the ones on Redszone?
    How do we know he's not Mel Torme?

    I think holier than thou college football debate is pointless and stupid. Every school from Alabama to Utah St violates NCAA rules one way or another every single season. Some get caught, some don't, but arguing about which school or conference is "cleaner" is ridiculous. The stakes for those violations are obviously higher at an Ohio State or USC or Alabama due to the money and prestige involved, but it happens everywhere which is why the NCAA is going to be fundamentally reformed over the next 10 years because there is no way to police it.

    Very true. And some fans will admit it and some do not. Did you know James Brooks (Auburn) was illiterate after he "finished" college? Brooks was arrested in 1999 for failure to pay child support, owing over $110,000. When asked by the judge how he graduated from Auburn, Brooks said, ďI didnít have to go to class.Ē

    Oh please, I was simply asking a question. Quit being so sensitive.

    And if you really want to go that route, lets take a tally of SEC fans "littering" the Big 10 threads with their false superiority complexes.

    Really loving how ESPN is playing replays of the final play of this year's iron bowl seemingly every 5 minutes of their Sugarbowl coverage.

    Auburn senior football player Ashton Richardson has been named a finalist for the Rhodes Scholarship, marking the fourth straight year an Auburn student-athlete has become a Rhodes finalist.

    This sugar bowl is going really well so far.

    Baylor murdered this Oklahoma team. Bama may want to wake up now.

    I think the Iron Bowl took something from Bama that they can never get back. It'll be a long road to recovery, if ever that is even possible.

    But Okie had better worry less about throat slashes and more about keeping their foot on the throttle. I'd like to go to bed happy. Some of my Bama friends think this is the championship game BTW.

    Holding Bama to a FG attempt is almost like getting a turnover.
