That's not the point red. You don't get it. Adding 2 teams gives ANY conference more chances to get MORE teams ranked. Get it?
That's rich. Teams are added because of TV demographics and recruitiing demographics. I the SEC were adding two teams for more chances at ranked teams, they would not have added TAMU or Missouri 'cause neither was ranked the year before they enetered the SEC.
Are you serious? First, what other conference had 6 teams ranked in the top 10. That leaves 4 teams. ND lost. ORE won. STAN won. KAN ST lost. When the dust settled, using your logic, we can say 100% of the BIG 12 teams ranked in the top 10 LOST. We could also say 100% of the BIG 12 teams ranked in the top 11, LOST.
You're right that did leave four teams ranked in the top 10 which is exactly what should have been even before the bowl games--Psst that's been my point all along. And we aren't talking about the BIG or the Big 12 so don't deflect---but in case you're wondering I agree.
And two of the usually "dominant" teams lost to lesser/weaker teams. Why is that so hard to accept?
Man you really love sticking your foot in your mouth. I agree Florida hasn't been dominant since 2009 and that is exactly why they had no business being ranked #3to begin with.
Does the fact that the B1G Champ, WIS and the B1G runner-up NEB losing their bowl games, mean the entire B1G is down?
Reality check...the answer is a resounding YES. See? Some fans of other conferences can be honest about their own conference as well as thier own team.
Once again, other than your convoluted logic that the SEC is down because FLA and LSU lost, how in the world is the SEC down when compared to recent years?
Here's the thing--If two teams going into bowl games are similarily ranked and one loses say like Ala. vs. ND--Ala. won I have no issues with that. Same goes for TAMU vs. Oklahoma. Similarily ranked TAMU wins. No problemo. Then you had the two head scratcher bowl games Georgia vs. Nebraska & South Carolina vs. Michigan--the say what bowls. Did anyone seriously think Michigan OR Nebraksa was going to win? Finally you have the last two--LSU vs Clemson & Florida vs Louisville. The first two games evenly matched (ranking wise) and the SEC thumped both opponenets. The next two games? Even the oddsmakers in China didn't expect Michigan or Nebraska to win. Now, the last two games? They should have been gimme games for the SEC and it didn't happen. And you want to know why I think the SEC was down this year?
