    What, no UConn?

    Since OU and Fla. St. play each other in Sept in Talahassee (strong scheduling, anyone?) that will likely take one or the other out.

    Odds? With the BCS champion coming from the SEC 7 of the last 13 years, 6 of the last 8 years, and the last 5 years in a row, and with the huge toughening and preparation schedule which is the SEC schedule which tempers the players and coaches, what odds makers would bet against the SEC? Ones that would like to lose their money. Odds are overwhelming that the winner of the SEC will win the BCS. Odds are the the winner of the SEC will be in the SEC West. Teams in the SEC West which may win the SEC and the BCS: LSU, Alabama, Auburn, Arkansas, and Mississippi State and with LSU boldly scheduling Oregon as the first game of the season in the new billion dollar Dallas stadium, it puts them in the driver’s seat if LSU wins the game.

    I got an idea – let’s meet back here in 5 years and see how many of the players on the team that won the NC graduated and how they have done – those who didn’t make the NFL.

    1historian – Yes! That would certainly show so many fans how senseless it is to enjoy college sports for what it is, and how foolish they are to not hate it for what it is not.

    joeanaert93: The contest with Oregon is just the beginning with LSU. When they beat Oregon, they then have the gauntlet schedule of the SEC West, with Alabama looming ahead. No matter which team in the SEC wins it all, they will have an inside edge to make it to the BCS and then win.

    Yea Alabama is going to be the biggest problem on LSUs sechdule I don’t really see any other teams being a problem this year besides south Carolina and Florida maybe ole miss their my sleeper this year but oregons my favorite team they have been since like 2000 and I don’t see anyone slowing them down this year besides LSU and Stanford but hey who knows

    GO DUCKS!!!!

    joeanaert93: Those Ducks are surely entertaining! They have had some terrific offense the last few years. LSU has gotten by with somewhat abysmal offense and a great defense. We hope this year will mark an improvement in the offense since we now have a new OC and a new QB who may not start but should see some good time in the game, especially if the offense sputters during the first couple sets of downs v. your Ducks.

    We are impressed with your knowledge of the SEC. Ole Miss is the only team we (we are family of posters all professionals–teachers, professors, a medical doctor and all alums from the SEC, especially LSU, now all retired and following the team) that we just about spit on the ground to hear or read the name. We think it is genetic since our father went to LSU almost a century ago and we have a history in Baton Rouge and south Louisiana.

    That is what is so interesting and entertaining about college football. The players play with such emotion sometimes and if that emotional level for whatever reason is down one particular Saturday and up for the other team, there are upsets. An old truism we have heard in the SEC for years which has proven true so many times: “Any team can beat any other team on any given night.” We really like our head coach (Les Miles) and his family. He tragically suffered the death of his sister recently in a traffic accident along LA. 1.

    Those of us who are able (we have a brother in the hospital and a sister fighting cancer in the hospital) may be able to make it to Dallas to Jerry’s Palace for the LSU v. Oregon game. We have friends and family near the area. We will try to make as many games this year, but it is getting a little more difficult with health issues.

    Ole Miss has aggravated us for much longer than most fans would realize. They are ascending and always could rise to the occasion and play LSU like their lives depended upon it. If LSU was ever just a little lethargic, we would really get a scare of our lives, or lose. (and that happened too! ugh!) We actually like all the other SEC teams, though of course we will pull for LSU when they play them, but we pull for the SEC team v. all non-SEC opponents. We are hoping somehow Georgia can get it going this year also. Some SEC teams like Georgia seem to just be one player or two short of making a good run and they made have gotten that player or two with great recruiting years.
