Even joining the little 12 could mean a cross country flight since West Virginia is a conference member.
I hope Vandy brings it home for the conference. Was it just me or did the NCAA do their best to arrange the seeds so we wouldn’t have an all SEC championship series? Maybe I’ve just got SEC bias.
You’re not alone. I’ve never watched it.
Rapid Reaction: Auburn needs OT, but advances to first Final Four in school history with dramatic win
This is unreal! Nothing but respect for Auburn. If they can win it all, they will have faced a murderer’s row of teams. Heck, how many teams can say they eliminated Kansas, North Carolina, and Kentucky in one tournament? Congratulations Auburn. Win it for the state.
AD Jim Sterk writes op-ed questioning precedent set by NCAA following Missouri’s punishment despite cooperation
Missouri got railroaded plain and simple. The NCAA needs to go the way of the dodo bird. I think the power five and group of five conferences should pull out and create a new organization.
SDS Mailbag: Best conference team nicknames, the ideal ‘The Office’ basketball lineup, should Mike Anderson have stayed at Mizzou and more
Wasn’t LSU once the Fighting Tigers? I know an unofficial nickname is the Bayou Bengals but I seem to remember the “fighting” being part of the name back in the 70’s or 80’s.
Nice to see the understanding and acceptance by Auburn’s fans. Some fan bases would be cursing him and calling him a mama’s boy or other drivel. Class by Tiger fans.
Henry Ruggs on his impressive 4.25 40-yard dash from Alabama’s Junior Day: ‘I feel like I can do better’
I doubt if you’ll still be laughing in November.
I think we can do better without hiring someone with Pitino’s reputation. He’s just too tarnished at this point.
Maybe looking to get a teammate of his?
Peyton is just waiting for Fulmer to retire and be the next AD. Neyland Stadium will be Nationwide-Neyland Stadium and MasterCard Field.
Congrats to the rest of the SEC. Maybe we’ll get a real coach and make the dance again someday.
Hence, the two Oklahoma schools or VT and a North Carolina school like NC State.
Yay! We beat Ole Miss and our reward is.......Getting run off the court by Kentucky. I know Bama’s already beaten Kentucky in the regular season but these are two different teams playing tonight than the ones that played the first game.
Okay, I get basketball, but football??? That’s like accusing the kid that scored a 9 on his ACT of cheating.
The B1G didn’t start playing a conference tournament until around the turn of the century. I think if they had done so in the 70’s or 80’s, Indy would have won their share.
Missouri and A&M were good adds for the conference from a financial and recruiting standpoint. Arky is down right now but they could turn it around eventually. No way would I want UCF. If there’s another round of expansion, i’d Like to see Oklahoma and either Texas or OK State from the little 12 or Virginia Tech and a North Carolina school from the ACC. Honestly, if there’s another round of conference expansions I expect it to be the death sentence for the Big XII. Texas will probably head to the Pac Conference instead of risking becoming an also ran in a real football league. The two Oklahoma schools have already flirted with the idea of following aTm and Mizzou to the SEC. of course that’s just my humble opinion.
This new league is pretty fun. I know it’s not at the talent level of the NFL but it’s still fun to watch. The Iron definitely feels like the SEC versus the rest of the country.
We still play basketball? I thought we quit after that elite 8 year. At least that’s how it feels.
It’s going to be the same showdown this year as it was the last two. Georgia and Bama will slug it out and everyone else will whine. I just hope the winner beats the crap out of Clemson. See y’all in December.
Division championships. That must have been what he meant.
Cochran used to have a shirt that said “I’m the man that makes monsters.”
In its attempt to explain how Missouri is different than North Carolina, NCAA may have undermined future investigations
Yep, it’s time for the NCAA to go quietly into the night, never to be seen again. I’m sure the conferences could come up with something better as a replacement.
The NCAA is outdated, inept, out of touch, and needs a complete overhaul. There’s little or no consistency in the punishments doled out and no transparency. I hope Missouri gets a fair deal on their appeal but I wouldn’t bet on it, given the NCAA’s track record. Good luck guys! I’ll be rooting for y’all!
True. Tennessee Hate Week has been a long-standing tradition in Tuscaloosa. Maybe in 75 years we’ll have Arkansas hate week. Seriously though, I hope y’all have a great visit and enjoy some good hospitality.
Kirby Andy iowavol are making cases for Bryant to stay at your school and this is the route you take? I hope Tennessee and Florida wipe the floor with Mizzou this year. Georgia will absolutely destroy the Tigers. Someone says something nice about y’all and you try to talk trash so I hope you reap what you sow.
No disrespect towards Florida, but I was surprised that LSU wasn’t second to Bama. It seems like every other player in the NFL is from LSU.
Bama’s looking at lower the overall seating with the new renovations to Bryant-Denny. They’ll remove some of the student seating, add a big Jumbotron, and have an open patio section for the students.
I think this is a rivalry that needs to be played. I’d also like to see Missouri and Kansas renew their rivalry.
