    Alabama could have scored again against Florida in the last minute of the SEC title game, but Saban called off the dogs. Think Florida fans would have been happy if Bama tacked on another 7 there? I don't.
    Classless or not that is college football these days. If you don't beat your opponents by 20-30 pts you lose a spot or two in the ranks. I don't like running it up myself but this is what the rankings and BCS have created.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    You're right. There's 12 teams in the SEC and even though ten of them made Bowl games, not all twelve would have blown out UC. But as you admit, two of the SEC teams would have and no other conference can say that. As for how many SEC schools could beat UC, I agree with what was posted earlier. UC would be in the middle of the pack in the SEC, which is not to diminish UC's season. I for one enjoyed it immensely.

    If by middle of the pack you mean third, I agree.

Tennessee got blown out by Virginia Tech. The two teams at the top of the SEC are incredibly good. The rest of the conference this year was ho-hum.

    A Texas A&M team that nearly beat #2 Texas.

    No SEC team is as good as Alabama or Florida but so what? Very few teams are. Ten teams in Bowl games is very impressive. You really can't do better than that. That's an incredible feat for a 12 team conference

    Yeah. 20-7 resembles 51-24. I get it...

    Take the top two teams out of any league in college football and the rest will have serious flaws. One of those teams with serious flaws easily could have beaten #1 Alabama (Tennessee). They also played Florida very close. Due to injury, the team that we saw in the Peach Bowl vs Va Tech was not the same, but those middle of the road SEC teams are awfully tough.

    In the end, it's pretty much the same. Neither game was ever in doubt.

    I was agreeing with this written earlier:

    I disagree. The PapaJohn's Bowl was 13-0 entering the 4th qtr. The Sugar Bowl was 13-0 in the first qtr on the way to a 5 TD deficit at halftime. I see a difference, you apparently don't, but disagreements are what this Board is all about...

    A solid ten win season would make Cincy 3rd in the SEC....just saying...

    You won't find a bigger SEC fan than me but this year, it was a very top-heavy conference. Auburn for instance, won 8 games basically without a senior class....

    I agree about the disagreements (as strange as that sounds), but entering the fourth quarter South Carolina had about as good a shot at winning that game as UC did entering the fourth quarter in New Orleans (i.e. none).

    A bunch of teams made it to the bowls, but beyond the first two teams there was one other good team all year in the league, LSU and then several solid teams.

    Oh, and its also the same Texas A&M team who lost by 50 to Kansas State and 55 to Oklahoma. They were 6-7 this year. The fact that Georgia rolled them up shouldn't impress anyone. They weren't a good team this year.

    Tennessee also got 23 points hung on them by Ohio University. What's your point? They don't play consistent football. That's the very definition of 'mediocre.'

    Hey now! We won the MAC East and went to a bowl! There's no shame in giving up a few points to the Bobcats!
