As A&M and the SEC eat Longhorn lunch... BWAHAHAHA!!!

Rather than squaling about it Bielema and Saban need to sack up and stop it. If they do it'll go away.

@the_voice @HoustonVol So true. A&M and the SEC are eating Big Tex and their conference of toadies alive.

The multiples of poor judgement JM has shown this off-season has caused his precious (in his eyes) NFL Draft stock to fall like a rock. What a train wreck.

@alamoaggie08 @John at MrSEC Good lord does Manziel have "trainwreck" written all over him this year.
I can't imagine they could set a point spread high enough that I won't bet against him vs. Bama.
They're going to crush him like grapes under a vat full of Sicilian fatties. SPLAT!! Haw-Haw!!

@JAMJNS Hear-hear!! Once defenses start limiting what they do, then we can talk about limiting offenses.
4 months, 3 weeks ago on Saban Says Questions Need To Be Asked About Hurry-Up Offenses
@40Capt Oh but timeouts are more important. You only get three of those a half and they have 7 or 8 D-Lineman.
What a crock. Adapt or die, Saban/Bielema - just like offenses have with every new defensive wrinkle to come down the pike.
5 months, 3 weeks ago on SEC Coaches Debate The “Dangers” Of Hurry-Up Offenses
The problems for Pinkel are multiple, but the main one is recruiting. Rightly or wrongly, they decided to abandon their Texas pipeline that had been key to his (relative) success in favor of recruiting Georgia and Florida. Unfortunately, they came up dry in all three states. He also lost most of his in-state momentum (that culminated with the move to the SEC and Dorial Green-Beckham) with the 5-7 season, so things could really get ugly if they don't rebound with 7 or 8 wins.

The almost manic way Manziel has overindulged himself this off-season - like a fat kid turned loose in a candy shop - how can this not end in disappointment for aTm this year? All signs point to it.

Don't worry about the knucklehead faction, John. Everyone will recognize it for what it is. It's the same in New York or anywhere - "caller who wants to be a radio star". No big whoop.
And thanks for the Oliver Wendell Douglass "Green Acres"picture. Made me laugh out loud.

I'm sure you've commented on it, but what scheduling format could best preserve rivalries and help mitigate the kind of schedule inadequacies LSU is complaining about?
I really liked the idea someone floated a few weeks ago (divisionless, I believe) where each team had 4 or 5 permanent rivals while rotating the 3 or 4 games. It preserved the rivalries and helped mitigate the strength of schedules. It would be nice to see the SEC take the lead on this as they did with the divisional set up years ago.

@GatorGeek I'm not there yet (cutting the cord), but I did ditch the NFL Sunday Ticket and really don't miss it (thanks to NFL Red Zone ala carte during the season). But I agree with you - if the SEC Network can only be had via cable / satellite, it'll eventually hasten the eventual cord cut. I've got friends and family who have done it, and they don't miss it either. Over the air and other internet options can fill most of the gaps nicely.
They'd be wise to not overplay their hand here.

Great stuff, as always John. But for George and Tammy, I really like this one.

@ConnGator @Speedy98 That is a very nice set-up. The SEC might as well be cutting edge on this one too.

@ezgame @JRsec @AllTideUp While no expert on the SEC as a newbie, it seems to me the strength of the conference is the product, first and foremost. Far above market. The B1G's recent additions were all about markets. Nevermiind that their already suspect football product will only deteriorate. The SEC has never had huge TV markets (save Atlanta), yet their ratings and national interest in the league at an all-time high. Why? A superior product.
Adding schools a bunch of also-ran schools from the XII to get to 20 would be a huge mistake - the mistake the Big Ten is apparently ready to double down on in the name of gaining markets. A strong 16 will outperform a compromised 20, nationally, in the long run, while pod scheduling will preserve most of the rivalries that would be lost going to 20.
The additions of A&M and Missouri was a nice balance of product and markets, far better bang for the buck than Rutgers and Maryland will give the B1G. I trust Mr. Slive's future additions will be as equally well thought out.
