You failed to note that Georgia is also favored in all of their games.

Vince Dooley was always the king of poor mouthing his team so I shouldn't be surprised you failed mention it,

I guess it all depends on who is making he odds. I've seen UGA as the underdog at Clemson & one or 2 others.


Also, the Tide are favored by a huge margin. In the article you linked, Georgia is favored by less than a touchdown in a handful of games.

Scott my man, I'm not an A&M fan, but I love to tweak you guys!

I'd also add that most likely, the majority of SEC fans, don't believe in Natural Selection!

And Louisville? I remember this headline "Teddy Bridgewater paces Louisville to stunning upset of Florida."

How'd that work out?

Funny, but actually the Universities are sort of oases of intellectualism in the Bible Belt.

Ha - I'll play.

1. Based upon my one year there, you can't spell SUCKS without S.U.

2. Boise State will once again threaten for a BCS Bowl and then lose by 2 points late in the year to blow the season. 84-8 (.913) past 7 years.

Predict a good season for our senior QB Joe Southwick. He was a little shell shocked last year. Also linebacker play will be improved - got some young guns. Conversely - freshman All America defensive end, Sam Ukwuachu was dismissed after spring ball as was DB Lee Hightower.

Interesting Forbes article here.
