    Mizzo AD and boosters think they have to go to a power running game in order to compete in the SEC. Some Arkansas boosters think this is needed in Fayette ville.

    Missouri probably would have been better off waiting a year for the Big 10.

    Re: SEC Football Discussion Thread

    I was telling a friend at work today that I cant ever remember a team being ranked # 3 in the country , Georgia, and yet given basically no shot at beating the number 2 Bama. Which I dont think it will be very close either.
    Which someone was stating the other day how the SEC scheduled better and some of these teams lost early and moved up whereas Oregon and KSU lost late and slipped.

    As an Alabama fan, I am very worried about Georgia. IMO, this game is a toss up with maybe a slight advantage to Georgia. If Bama doesn't figure out its secondary and pass rush, Murray will throw for 300+.

    Alabama needs a package that can stay out on the field on defense when teams go to a hurry up. LSU and Florida do it.

    Colorado and Kentucky have both proven without a shadow of a doubt that Pro-Style offenses rarely, if ever, work at outmanned BCS schools anymore.

    Were I Colorado U, I'd target Air Force's Troy Calhoun, though I'm not sure he'd be interested in the Buff job.

    I don't see Bama rolling and the 7 pt spread tells me most others don't either

    Who has Georgia beaten? Florida. They have played two ranked teams all year long, got spanked by one (SC) and beat the other.

    I defiantly think they benefited from a generous schedule. IMO no team should go through an entire season without playing at least one of LSU and Alabama and vice versa playing at least one of Georgia and Florida.

    They won't. That's why they have a championship game. If you're correct, they'll be exposed before Bowl bids go out

    Crazy to think that the Orange Bowl could be:

    Kent State vs Georgia Tech

The NCAA is looking into Memphis recruiting because of the Jovon Robinson transcript situation but it is not focusing upon Auburn. It has visited several campuses regarding this issue and Auburn is an obvious one to visit. Trooper and Luper had been taken off of the recruiting circuit until Dec 1 as part of a self-imposed penalty for a self-reported secondary violation completely unrelated to anything in Memphis.

    There is zero concern within the Auburn athletic department. There is no investigation of Auburn's football program.

    Haggle over Tennesee or Auburn but Arksansas is an obvious distant option from a desireability standpoint. Resources, recruiting, tradition, etc wise, Arkansas has largely been a second tier SEC program traditionally.
    According to Pat Forde there is an ongoing investigation.

    He ranks his top 4 as Tennessee, Arkansas, NC State then Auburn.

    The poor Orange Bowl has really been screwed by its affiliation with the ACC.

    Theres no guarentee that the Big 10 would have come calling. I think what Big 10 is doing is trying to entice ND with a bunch of Eastern teams and saw the ACC as a threat there. Hence Maryland, Virginia, and UNC rumors.

    Missouri got passed by on 2 occasions no guarentee the third time would have been any different.

    When does the SEC rectify the Missouri being in the east and goes to 16?

    I wouldn't mind Auburn and Missouri changing divisions and playing each other every 4 years.

    Missouri would look better in the Big 10. USF would have been a better choice for the SEC. Tampa market would have been nice.

    Pat Forde is wrong about an ongoing investigation targeting Auburn. He's also out of touch concerning his impression of "heavy handed" boosters.

    Pat Forde is definately not someone who could claim to have inside sources into things Auburny...
