I'm a conference pride guy(LSU fan) that roots for the other teams in the conference in OOC games for the same reasons stated earlier in this thread, perception of the strength of the conference. Without that perception, UF '06 doesn't play for the title, LSU '07 with 2 losses doesn't play for the title and Bama '11 doesn't play for the title. Just because you are the elite teams(Bama, LSU right now) in a conference doesn't mean that the others perception of strength isn't important. Look at what has happened to the Big 12, Big 10 and Pac 12 over the last few years. Their perception of overall weakness has hampered their ability to get the benefit of the doubt. The Pac 12 in particular may have to look at this perception squarely in the face this season. If USC and Oregon split this year, there's a very good chance that both get left out of the national title game because the rest of the conference is percieved(and is) weak. Those 2 schools have to win out or hope that everyone else has a loss. The SEC can overcome that because of the perception of strength.
Also at this time the media is growing tired of the SEC. If we don't prove our dominance on the field, without a doubt, our conference may not get that benefit of the doubt because people are tired of us. Last night I rooted for Auburn and Bama though I expected Auburn to lose and Bama to dominate as they did. Also rooted for Tennessee Friday, even though their fans make that a difficult thing to do. We need the conference to prove it's strength in these games or we may pay for it come December when the bowl bids come out.
Man ichy, I had thought you were man enough to admit when you were wrong. Read what you said above. You made the duma$$ statement not me. Guess I had you pegged as an honorable poster. My bad

Where was I wrong? Again. We put the SEC on the map. We are the traditional premier program of the SEC.
Screw chanting SEC. I'll chant it in basketball and baseball. Why? Because we are inferior in those sports
My post has to do wioth FSU because you are an FSU fan calling out other fans for talking smack without reason when you and your fans do the same. You have lost at least 4 games or more every year for the last decade and have lost to Wake Forest 4 times in the last 6 years, but you are still delusional enough to believe you have been worth a shit in recent years. You are also delusional enough to believe you were ever worth a shit before the 1980's

Wut the f............
This guy has lost his f'ing mind. Someone from Auburn step up and talk to your brother.
"We put the SEC on the map before your sorry school joined". YOUR WORDS IN Quotation marks. I'll type this real slow for you. We were both CHARTER members of the SEC so how could you have put the SEC on the map before we joined? Charter members mean we were members when the conference began. You didn't even have a winning record over AU until late in bear's career. It took the 9 year streak to regain the over all lead. Just the facts.
Forgive me. Saw cock in your handle and thought you were a gamecock.
I dont see sigs on mobile.
OK, now I understand. Nope AU thru and thru.
Pre 80's smack is sorta gay....
Dude you countinue to bring up that Wake Forest and clemson svit to deflect from your team getting beat by a team without their best player, and their defense being really young.
Also FSU was a pretty good team in the late 70's, and was the first florida team to play for in a major bowl game. We play Oklahoma in I believe 1980 in the Orange Bowl. We also have had some pretty good teams before Bowden came a long, but not great until Bowden became the coach.
IYAM Tahj Boyd is their best player. Nothing happens withou him. Watkins is a beast but Boyd makes it happen. JMO

Well get a cock fan in here so I can argue with him
No matter what team he roots for his post is 100% ACCURATE. Auburn fans are like UT fans from Rivals.
Bammers like you actually start more threads about Auburn on this board than actual Auburn fans do. bammers have started at least 15, 20, or 25 threads about Auburn just since yesterday and you personally have started 3 , 4, or 5 threads.
You cannot seriously claim any team is irrelevant when you personally worry about that team day and night like you and the vast majority of your fan base does with Auburn. Well, at least not unless you are an idiot, which the great majority of the bammer fan base is
As far being like UT is concerned, I would take being like any fans in the known universe ahead of being like the bammer fan base
TP is a top notch Bammer. Colonel status.
I'd give him top Bammer but I have dibs on it
Honey hush. Just close your eyes. It will all be over soon.

1. Show me were I said Auburn is irrelevant.
2. You can't and now you're grasping at flames for stuff I never said.
3. Do we really need another Alabama fan starting threads about the greatness of Alabama Football? Nick Saban has basically made Alabama uninteresting for me.
4. I enjoy starting threads about Auburn. In fact, if I didn't there would be none because once the season begins, any Auburn threads cease to exist from Auburn fans because you don't want to talk about all that suckiness.
5. Alabama is really great at football aren't they.
6. Yes. Yes we are
7. Not Auburn
maybe if yall did not run your mouth so much it would not be that way. just seeing your childish nwo bullshit make's me want auburn to lose more. well not really i could not want yall to lose more than i do, but it does make it better when you do lose. by the way where was the great nwo last night...lol. should be nwnoshow..lol
At the game watching, not screwing around on a message board, basically living a life outside 247.
I Believe Auburn and Love IT...4 Life!
You should prepare yourself to live with the consequences of your decisions, whatever they may be.
Aren't you special.
Is all this supposed to accomplish anything except to further expose you as the typical bammer douchebag you apparently are and prove my original point about being like any other fan base in the known universe would be better than being like the bammer fan base?
You just prove everything Auburn fans say about your retarded fan base is true. When an Auburn fan tells people they despise bammer because they have the worst fan base you can possibly imagine, those Auburn fans can point to douchebags like you as Exhibit A

Some would say yes. They're the only ones that count tho.
