& the dispicable SEC bias it shows,,,,
& with tha playoffs coming soon,,,,,.
Will the playoff format havE SEC bias also??? Will there be years wear the SEC will have 2 or 3 out of the 4 teams??? Like last year?? I mean its obvious SECSEC is the best conference, but it doesnt mean there teams ALWAYS deserve the benefir of the doubt...
Does the playoff system use the BCS to determine the playoff teams? If so, then yes the SEC will probably be 2 or 3 of the teams more times than not
Steve Spurrier is a God, and Mark Richt worships him
Yes. The SEC is the power broker of CFB and will not allow a system to be in place that does not give it an inherent advantage. 2 SEC teams minimum every year.
I'm glad Slive rigs the computer formulas and pays off pollsters to vote for our teams.
CBS and ESPN contracts - where there is money, there is corruption.
That will change now that the top four matters. No reason to press them into the top four in the current system.
No. The bcs is dead once the playoffs start. A selection committee will determine the 4 best teams.
Exactly. CBS and ESPN launder Slive's money and distribute it to the hundreds of pollsters so they'll keep voting our teams in the top 25.
Why would those networks want to have the major contracts in place with the SEC?
Why not show 5 B1G or Big12 or ACC games every Saturday?
Slive is a genius!

Didn't know it was okay to penalize teams for being superior to it's opponents! SEC owns everyone they play so until out of conference teams beat SEC teams on the regular STFU about it. There is a bias towards the SEC for that reason. I'm sorry your team is not in the SEC because if they were, your team would probably get whipped around like a rented mule and a great season would be to finish above .500
I love when teams that have never won our conference come running to defend something they will never be.
Change is coming my man! Hey did Bama win this weekend?
No, they did not. I guess I will just have to settle for a chance again, to do something that South Carolina has never done. Sorry Florida seems to be back and you can take you place back in the middle of the SEC East. Just keep hoping Tennessee doesn't get it together. Those 3 point wins against Tennessee are going to be harder and harder to come by if they do.

LSU had the pleasure of beating up Washington to bring the SEC's record against the PAC to .500 in the BCS era. Next year, Oregon has the pleasure of thrashing TN bringing the PAC back ahead. If Bama didn't shit the bed they would have done it this year.
It's cute you deflect your shortcomings
You know what they say in Columbia. It's a long offseason until baseball starts.
Last time we matched up with Bama we beat them badddddd! Would love to see the Gamecocks matching up with them in ATL but finally we get Georgia's cupcake schedule next year and guarantee you will be cash our ticket.
Meh. The schedules actually ended up evening up quite a bit with Arkansas blowing this year. If you hadn't gotten your brains beaten in by Florida, we could have seen you there, but you did.
Didn't see UGA playing in Death Valley at night either?
SEC fans root for a conference not just a their football team. You southern folks amuse me.
I didn't say they were perfectly even. The night game in Death Valley didn't have to matter though either. Still could have lost that and still won the East. You just didn't take care of business. Pretty simple.
We played worse against LSU than we did against Texas A&M and still won at night in Death Valley. It's not really scary. They don't play with guns or anything like that.
I am far from an SEC fan, but isn't the bias sort of earned? It wasn't that long ago when the SEC had an undefeated team left out of the national championship game. Knock them off the pedestal on the field and the bias will be quick to go. Voters would be very happy to vote USC, OSU and Texas into the top spots.
