    SEC in the bowl season is showing this was a down year for them. I thought it during the season and it's showing up in the post season. It didn't surprise me that UL beat UF. I thought UF was somewhat overrated all season. If Bridgewater was healthy I thought, at the least UL, would give them a tough game.
    By SEC standards this was indeed a bad year but when it's all said and done by any other standard it was a very good year. I expect Alabama to take the crown again on Monday

    So you root for Alabama and Florida and Vandy and Kentucky when they're not playing UT? Nah. I can't get behind that. I'm all for "defending the conference" but most times, the results speak for themselves. I won't pull for any of the rivals of my favorite team. Especially when the fan base is largely a group of condescending, know-it-alls. I'm perfectly fine with UT going 0-12 in perpetuity.

    Doesn't one have to play in the SEC to be an SEC player? If they sign up elsewhere, then they aren't an SEC player. Ohio State has been recruiting from the south and taking players who had interest from SEC schools for decades. This isn't something new with Urban Meyer.

    Score another outstanding hire for Gus Malzahn as he completes is new staff. Today he added Rich Bisaccia, one of the best special teams coaches in football regardless of level, to serve as assistant Head coach and to coach special teams and running backs.

    Malzahn is building a staff of individuals with impressive track records of developing NFL calibre players and given their recruiting reputations, this staff will be a recruiting juggernaut.

    Props to UL. UF clearly had no interest in playing this game but a win is a win.

    Bridgewater is really great.

    UK will probably be the best team UL plays next season... could have an easy run next season if they don't screw it up. Will their pre-season ranking get them to the NC if they avoid choking? Possibly so, hard to call that projected schedule earning it though, hence the changes that have been made to the BCS.

    I wouldn't exactly say that. I've watched several UF games this year and they looked about like they always do on defense, fast and super-aggressive -- early on, they looked closer to "out of control" than "disinterested" -- and, like most of the season, the offense was uninspiring. They made a living all year off winning the turnover battle, special teams and the fourth quarter, but they made a few too many mistakes to dig their way out this time, mostly thanks to Bridgewater's poise and accuracy. It's football, it was six weeks since they'd played, it happens.

    Who knows how the game turns out if Louisville doesn't get that shot of "this is our night" adrenaline right out of the gate, but that's why they play 'em.

    Christmas just won't end for Auburn fans. It looks like Dameyune Craig is coming home to serve as associate offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach. Craig is widely regarded as one of the premier recruiters in college football and he is a helluva human being too. By my count all that is left is TE coach. Tim Horton (razorback rb coach) has loudly been rumored to be a target to fill that spot.

    Auburn is poised to inflict some serious bloodletting on its rivals across the recruiting grounds. Put 5 stars in Malzahns scheme and records will be broken. Give Johnson 5 stars and tell him aggression is priority one and you'll get guys vaporized like Clowney's infamous hit. Sandmountaineers had better run to the hills. You know that thing you fear the most? It's back. And it's pissed.

    Louisville wouldn't be at the level they're at without the shady recruiting of Clint Hurtt (which includes Teddy Bridgewater). Without Bridgewater, UofL was likely a sub-.500 football team this year, and he was obviously the difference in the game last night. They better hope Hurtt ends up being innocent of all the things thrown at him in that Yahoo article last year.

    Funny coming from a fan of UK basketball. The same could be said of calipari and the allegations Pete thamel has tossed around.

    Facts are the NCAA has not found any wrong doing by Cal or Hurt. UK fans are just upset because SEC superiority argument carries a lot less weight after Louisville has dominated the second highest ranked school in the conference.

    And bridgewater was awesome but so was the defense.

    I am by no means a Louisville fan but I told my friends the day of the game that I didnt feel it would be a Gator blowout. My reasoning was, this wasnt a Spurrier or Meyer Florida team. They would beat you by a score of 21-13 rather than 52-10.
    The following scores are 3 of their last 4 games.

    Missouri W 14-7
    Louisiana-Lafayette W 27-20
    Jacksonville State W 23-0

    A Spurrier/Meyer team would have put at least 40 on the board against those teams and ran them off the field.
    Louisville's defense played the way it did earlier in the season, which was excellent, and Florida didnt have the offense to catch up.
    I realize they are the second highest rated team but I feel like at best they are the 3rd best. It is debatable but I didnt feel like the Gators should have been playing in that game. Georgia made a believer out of me against Bama. That rule that kept them out of the BCS game and put Florida in is silly to me.
    I realize a rule is a rule but UGA was ranked 3rd and was within one play of knocking off Bama in what was truly a classic football game but they "drop" in rankings and go to a lesser bowl (after beating Florida in season).
    I felt like Florida was more of a 8 or 9 overall ranked team rather than a #3.
    That being said, Louisville deserves the credit as TB is the real deal and will probably be vaulted on the national scene for the upcoming season after that game.
    It may be junior season and on to pros.

    Gus Malzahn has indeed completed is on the field coaching staff as Tim Horton has accepted a position as TE coach.

    Horton has been instrumental in Arkansas' recent success in the running game and is also known as an excellent recruiter.

    Malzahn has put together a very impressive oaching staff at a breakneck speed.

    Urban just recruited one of those SEC players in Trey Johnson.

    Anybody watching the Johnny Football show? I'm hoping the Bengals have a down season in two years so they can get this guy. If he's this good as a freshman and even has more room to grow physically, he could be a once in a lifetime player.

    I'm not sure there is a team in the country that could beat A&M right now.
