Feel really bad for UGA. They have had 5 years worth of bad luck in one.

So what about the 25-per-year limit?

UT was good under Fulmer only when UA-trained David Cutcliff was OC. UT is making progress now that UA-trained AD Dave Hart is captain on Rocky Top. Still, 100%? I'm skeptical that every football player -- especially football players -- made an instant turn-around. Some had done little to nothing since arriving.

Hey, we all know that his mouth and his mind are not well-connected. Or maybe his mind is that messed up. Nothing he says surprises.

Many despised the current system -- but do you think that this committee won't have its own prejudices? Do you really believe that 'SEC fatigue' won't affect votes? Often getting what you asked for leads to bitter disappointment.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on With The Playoff Selection Panel Set There’s Only 1 Question: How Do They View The SEC?
The truth has recently emerged after years of cover-up designed to make a martyr of Matthew Shepherd. Stephen Jimenez intended to write a sympathetic screen play, but after 13 years of investigation he wrote a book saying it was all wrong.
"Aaron McKinney (one of the murderers) had been a male hustler, that he was familiar with gay guys in gay bars.” "He was pretty well-dressed, had a wallet full of money,” McKinney told ABC’s 20/20 of meeting Shepard at a bar. “All I wanted to do was beat him up and rob him … Seemed like a good idea at the time.”

Fullmer was successful ONLY when he had David Cutcliff as his OC (but he grabs all the credit), and when he wasn't sweeping around Alabama's back door for dirt. Now we know that he had plenty in his own program. Remember too how he hid from a subpoena to avoid telling the truth. Karma strikes.

Fulmer was too busy sweeping for dirt at Alabama's back door to monitor his own. He's reaped what he sowed.
2 months, 1 week ago on Fulmer Says He Didn’t Know Foster Was Paid; How Much Damage Can One Rat Do?
Disagree, because this will solve nothing. A player who gets $100k from his U will still take $5k more on the side. So all you're doing is changing the starting point from $0 cash to something higher. The value of an all expenses paid education (if it's taken advantage of) along with room and board and tutoring and lots of other perks is in the hundreds of thousands even if it's not in the athlete's hands, a good thing. Imagine what other trouble a lot of them would get in if their pockets were flush with money -- more drunkenness, drugs, gambling, race cars.... What would you do when it was time to pay the tuition but the star blew all his pay already? We already see that a great number of these kids do not have the maturity to handle what they have. Giving them cash will only enable them to be more self-destructive and irresponsible. Four years later they should have more discernment and self-discipline (emphasis on 'should', and most do.)
Then there's poor Adrian Foster -- had to choose between taking the cash and eating or paying the rent. Of course had he stayed in the athletic dorm and eaten with the rest, it wouldn't be a problem, would it?

If schools lose money due to penalties (eg bowl revenue), they should sue everyone involved who caused it: coaches, former players, boosters, AGENTS. I think a couple multi-million dollar verdicts would stop the nonsense.

If Florida didn't want to be there, why did it accept? Enough SEC money came in to easily cover the tickets. The bowls have to cover their expenses too, the reason for the allotments.

I don't buy it. How about a comparison of SEC coaches' salaries with those of other conferences? Take Butler (12-4, rpi 14): Brad Stephens made $1.2 million in 2011; Anthony Grant $1.9 mil. So pay Grant a mill more and he becomes a better coach? By your own measure this doesn't compute.

@John at MrSEC My error in the way I stated it. But I don't retract my assertion: Vanderbilt's juniors and seniors would not play at 70% of the other SEC schools.
11 months ago on SEC Bowl Observations: VU, LSU, MSU, USC, And UGA
A "stacked roster" at Vanderbilt? The recruiting rankings over the years demonstrate that is equivalent to nearly having only 3rd teamers elsewhere. I'm no Vanderbilt fan but am objective enough to say that no coach is in a place harder to win and has done more with less, not Spurrier nor Richt nor Saban. Franklin deserved coach of the year.
Then to say that Bryant and Spurrier are the "two greatest SEC coaches of the modern era", and leave out Saban? That's ridiculous. He had to rebuild Alabama when he arrived -- which admittedly was easier than building USC -- but he has taken them farther as well, and has done so repeatedly. So the statement should have been "the THREE greatest SEC coaches ... " and included him.
Finally, I don't feel sorry for Les Miles -- he is lying in the bed he made. It is his own decisions that earned him the name "The Mad Hatter". Had the losses been do to "bad luck" or events like the first down call for Michigan, he would deserve sympathy. But he frequently manages to lose a crucial game with his own poor judgment.
