Maybe Mayock doesn't follow college football, but that "stinky" o-line had two potential first round draft picks on it - and possibly the #1 overall pick. I don't mean to take away from what Manziel did - he was phenomenal, but that A&M o-line was far from "stinky." Swope and Michael are NFL caliber players as well... this was/is a very talented A&M team. It's going to be very tough for my MSU Dawgs to go into college station and come out with a win next fall.

I'm particularly fond of quote #3. "Until that doesn’t change, it ain’t going to get any better."

Good thing it wasn't a motorcycle accident... Too soon??

@daveakston @StateMan08 I'll have to respectfully disagree. Take Mizzou for example. Over the last several years, Mizzou has been quite successful in Big XII league play. Look at them this year... they just lost to Vandy - traditionally the worst team in the SEC - and are 0 and 3 in conference play with Bama coming to town this weekend. I'm not trying to knock the Big XII - it's full of great schools with good football programs. However, the SEC is crazy deep. The traditional "lower tier" SEC schools are - Vandy, UK, Ole Miss, and Mississippi State. I'm a huge Miss. State fan, and I'm glad to see that Bulldog football is MUCH better than it's been since JWS left the program (a huge part of our success now was that Coach Croom came in and really changed the culture at MSU). We THUMPED Michigan in the Gator bowl two years ago. Ole Miss is a much improved team this year. Vandy is not the Vandy of old. UK is pretty bad this year, as well as Auburn. I don't know what's happened at Arkansas, but that's a mess as well. Tennessee is looking better this year. If you lined up the power rankings for the SEC vs. any other conference (this year - and most years), I think the SEC wins 60% + of those games. Maybe it's me being a bit of a homer, but aside from UK, every team in this league is more than capable (even a terrible Auburn team). You're not going to find too many SEC fans that will disagree with me. I try to look at things as objectively as I can, and I don't think there's any doubt that the SEC is the best, and deepest, conference today.

@StateMan08 "First off, the SEC has NOTHING on the Big XII this year....say whatever you want....deapest conference in the land."
Thanks for the comic relief. The Big XII may be "deap," but the SEC is by far the deepest conference. Good luck in Ames.
"But ISU’s coach appears to be a guy who can do less with more."
I think you mean "more with less."
I really enjoy the blog! Keep up the good work - makes my work day flow so much smoother!
@JMattHicks As a MSU alum and fan, I'm excited to have A&M in the SECW. With all the similarities between our schools, I can see this turning into a great rivalry. Enjoy your trip to Starkville in November... the tailgating scene has improved DRAMATICALLY over the past 10 years, and the people around town are very friendly.

I really think we found a gem in Coach Ray. It'll take him a few recruiting classes, but I'm excited to watch his brand of Bulldog basketball. 100% accountability - the foundation for a successful organization.

Been reading your stuff for a good while... Mr. SEC has some of the best writing out there. Thanks for including humor and wit in your craft.
Hopefully this is the weekend Mullen and co. break through that SEC West barrier. Hail State!
