    Re: SEC Football Discussion Thread

    Notre Dame's signature win doesnt look that great now does it ?

    Sumlin with this win probably gets 4 years without the hotseat ever being mention. He will get atleast two more years of Manziel and then he got a QB recruit this year that should fit in real nice after Manziel. Guy can coach and is a good recruiter.

    Saban likes challenges and I imagine he watched this game with a gleam in his eye and will talk to Stoops in the coming weeks. They both did that with Tim Tebow.

    Actually Manziel will be draft eligible after next year. He's a redshirt freshman.

    Crazy thing about Texas AM is that they may have three players going within the first ten picks this years draft:

    LT Luke Joeckel (junior), Texas A&M
    DE Damontre Moore (junior), Texas A&M
    T Jake Matthews (junior), Texas A&M

    After watching Georgia and Texas A&M, I'd say at best Florida is the #4 team in the SEC. This just goes to show how tough the SEC is. My guess is any of the SEC's top three teams, Alabama, Georgia, Texas A&M, would win any other conference in the country were they placed there in 2012. That's impressive

    I agree. They looked like world beaters last night. Another year where I feel cheated that we don't have a playoff. Not only won't the best team be crowned NC on Monday night, we won't see Oregon play against a real defense. I was looking forward to an Alabama/Notre Dame-Oregon matchup until the Ducks lost to Stanford in OT

    You'd have to expand to 16 teams to include A&M in a playoff and I doubt that will ever happen. This year also shows the potential limitation of the four team playoff. The four teams could have been Notre dame, Alabama, ksu, and Florida. Two of which were exposed as frauds in their bowl games.

    No question a four team playoff will still generate controversy but I disagree with your four teams. I think Oregon would have been one of them

    Oregon didn't win their conference so kstate would have been the likely pick.

    They haven't been clear about how they're going to pick teams but I suspect conference championships won't be the determining factor

    HAHAHAHA. Shady recruiting of Teddy? Fiction can be fun.

    Is Muschamp on the hot seat? UF should be very good next season, does he need to win the East?

    It's startling how disinterested and unmotivated UF appeared for their bowl game...

    The only other option is to admit that Louisville was the better team. It must be a shock that the team UK fans have lost any hope of ever beating UofL beat convincingly.

    Auburn reeled in a 4 star JUCO defensive tackle as Ben Bradley commits this afternoon and will enroll in classes this week so that he can participate in spring practices and workouts.

    Bradley had offers from Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia, Arkansas, Missouri, Texas A&M, Miami, Nebraska, Oklahoma and West Virginia. It apparently came down to KY and AU which wasn't a very fair fight because members of the AU coaching staff, though newly hired, had already built substantial relationships with Bradley (and several of his JUCO teammates) through previous recruiting efforts.

    KY fans have to be dissapointed because Bradley is a guy who can step in immediately and be a force but they out recruited some top programs to come in second. That probably speaks well of how the Stoops crew might recruit going forward.

    This comes on the heels of Auburn winning the recruiting battle for Lavon Hooks a 5 star JUCO DT who ultimately committed to his second choice when he failed to clear Auburn's admissions due to an English course. Alot of people were wondering if Bradley would face similar problems. Auburn had been tough to out recruit during Chizik's tenure. I think their new staff is actually a significant upgrade from a recruiting standpoint. Malzahn has been a perfect hire and it's tough to see a coach who would've been a better fit-he gets the Auburn culture and he gets that there is no learning curve or honeymoon.
