I think I like Texas Aggies -3 at Arkansas. Seems like a no brainer to me.
2 months, 1 week ago on SEC Odds And Television Listings – 9/23/13
This site and others began using inflammatory headlines about Manziel BEFORE ANY TRUTH WAS DOCUMENTED (not always, but sometimes). Manziel isn't perfect and no one is, much less at 20. Unfortunately there is a huge double standard going on now and the wheels are off. He used the money gesture all last year and now its taboo and insensitive. We've all been told when we are taunted to point at the scoreboard and walk away. Now that is a flag and bullying. The media blasts Manziel for the way he walked off the field after the flag and how he interacted with a Rice player earlier, yet both the coach and player say it didn't go down the way the media portrays. America expects him to have no zeal after being slandered and tarnished by ESPN and others regarding autographs REGARDLESS OF A COMPLETE LACK OF ANY EVIDENCE. Oh, let's not forget how we want Manziel to show so much maturity while the rest of the world gets a pass with an "anything goes" mentality.
I will be the first to change my mind if someone can prove he broke the rules. In the meantime, all the media hypes with double standards trying to sell exagerated sports news regardless of corraboration are not being mature or accountable for their actions, These are college kids and there is some duty on behalf of the media to get the stories right.
With that said, I enjoy this site. It is one of the best. And, yes, Johnny Football needs to grow up too!

I meant "not win its own conference".

Only in the SEC can a team win the national championship and win its own conference. Only in the SEC can someone win the Heisman and not be on the first team. Wow!
Interesting. Maybe Missouri expects their game with Arkansas when Fri Aggie / Tiger games are not played. Seemed like Arkansas and Missouri had some scheduling communication issues.
Also, Texas Wronghorns can't be happy that Aggies will now have a prime time opponent to replace them. Maybe Wronghorns will finally wake up and do what's best for both flagship Texas schools and renew the Lone Star Showdown!

listen, he deserves some criticism for some behavior, but much of the Media Frenzy is pure speculation and rumor. This site should focus on good journalistic facts more than hype. Mr. SEC is and should not be like some media sources trying to stir the pot to make a buck. It just seems like that is what is happening even though it probably isn't . Just sayin.

John, the stories about Maziel are getting old. It seems like you have a personal issue with him. Regardless of what happens this season, he has brought much good to SEC. Time to stop judging him about things that may happen in future and recent past. Why are writing about stuff that hasn't happened yet? Your site and reporting has always been better than that!!!
I guess this proves that Dodds is right, there is "no rivalry between t.u. and Texas A&M ". I wonder if McCarron would get the same response going to an Auburn frat party? Probably so, but I bet he wouldn't even try!

I have always liked this web site because it is very objective. However, leaving this headline and story up is everything but objective. Not one official from the camp or Manziel has substantiated what this headline states. In fact, all of the officials have said otherwise. This is not the kind of reporting I expect or have seen from Mr. SEC in the past. The article should be taken down until the circumstances change. Mr.SEC is better than this!
4 months, 3 weeks ago on Report: Johnny Manziel Gets Booted From Manning Camp
I hope permanent rivals ends. I want to see more SEC teams on an on going basis. If two teams want a permanent rival and they BOTH agree, then let them. Otherwise rotate all non division games. Better equity and more teams. Just my opinion.
5 months, 3 weeks ago on Slive Says SEC Will Have To Unravel A Knot And Make A Decision On Schedules
I don't understand why the SEC doesn't rotate opponents UNLESS both schools agree to be permanent cross division rivals? I don't see the benefit for all of the weak match ups just to get a couple of good ones? I don't see the equity in strength of schedule over time nor do I see the benefit for fans who want to see more teams on a consistent basis nationally. I disagree with this one John, but I respect your opinion.
6 months, 1 week ago on Schedule Debate: Even Recent History Shows You Can’t Predict Schools’ Future Success
John, you make it sound like each conference gets the same money from the college football playoff regardless of size. Is that true? Why would the four largest conferences allow the Big XII to make the same money vs splitting based on number of schools? I have the same question about the Sugar Bowl. Why would the SEC agree for an even split by conference instead by number of teams? Didn't the SEC have the negotiating leverage because they could have chosen either the Big XII or ACC?
6 months, 1 week ago on Big XII Meetings Begin With Big Cash, Scheduling Alliances On The Agenda
I Amy be the minority and I usually agree with John, but I don't want permanent cross division rivals. I think the league is best suited getting all teams in front of each other more often, creating more equitable (not perfect) schedules as possible, and creating more match ups of true national interest for TV purposes. In my opinion, rotating cross division foes is best suited to achieve these goals. Permanent foes also forces bad matchups.on some schools permanently which frankly is't right.
6 months, 1 week ago on Shortsighted Pundits Suggest The SEC Dump Permanent Rivals
I wonder why some at Maryland and the ACC feel like Maryland's decision was secretive and not transparent, but their additions of Pitt and Syracuse out of the blue was not? Sounds like the "kettle is black" to me and very hypocritical.

@ghall5517 @TEXAGEAGLE Texas Tech was part of the PAC expansion too, Utah would have been left out. In my opinion, all these teams would be gone if A&M would have agreed.
8 months, 2 weeks ago on Texas A.D. Dodds Blames End Of A&M Series On A&M (Also Talks Expansion)
Yes, I really believe that. They just pulled the biggest blindside in expansion and they want all to believe they are being truthful now. Like in the show Survivor, once the blindside happened, all bets are off the table and trust is all gone. It's every conference for themselves now and everyone should be all hands on deck before there isn't anything to fight for!
9 months, 1 week ago on OSU A.D. Smith Says Big Ten “Not Agressively Pursuing Anyone”
Don't believe a word Delaney says about being "inactive". The realignment game is at full tilt. If you remember watching Survivor years ago, once the unexpected blindsides occurred everyone became paranoid and lacked trust. Well, the Maryland and Rutgers blindside by the Big Ten did just that to everyone. The public was aware of Colorado, Nebraska, Texas A&M, and Missouri. The public won't be aware except by mistake anymore. Can anyone figure out why the SEC Network has been so quiet recently?
10 months, 3 weeks ago on Big Ten Commissioner Talks Conference Expansion
Seems like recent history says the SEC leads making an expansion move before the Big 10. The SEC moved to 12 and 14 teams first. Now that the Big 10 mouthpieces are publically stating more expansion is coming and it likely includes demographically favorable Sun Belt properties in the SEC's backyard, I would think the SEC makes its move immediately. This is a war for long term market leadership and no one can just sit out with the strategy of letting others determine its future. I see major moves by both the SEC and Big 10 and when it happens it will end the ACC as we know it and place the Big XII and Pac 12 into almost a tier 2 status unless they merge.

I think it's important to add to this article that he was the Outland Trophy winner. He is an excellent player that will do well in the NFL. Too bad he won't be around for next years title run though.

It would seem to me that this means Alabama starts next year at #1 and both Georgia and Texas A&M will be ranked in the top 5. If so, this will be another strong SEC start. I see Oregon, Stanford, and Ohio State making a run towards the top too.
