I remember watching Appalachian State upset Michigan in 2007 I believe was the year.


I was at that game. Was pretty quiet afterwards, 100k people in shock.

Texas will be a big pain in the sec rear end just like they were for the old Southwest Confrence and the Big Twelve. You will never ever match the money that that program swims in. No one in the country has the funds they do! And you will also find they will do less with more than any team in the nation. Be careful for what you wish for...

The higher ranked teams play some small college teams just to help out small college at the gate.
Not sure how they split the gate, but that's what I heard when Ohio State played Kent State , much like Michigan playing Akron.

Interesting. I didn't believe that (about the most well funded) so had to google it and you're not right, but you're dang close. They're #2. Harvard is #1.

Interestingly, Bama's not even in the top 20. Which makes their program's success even more impressive.

Just goes to show how weak the SEC is, lol. An unranked Texas team comes within a heartbeat of beating the mighty Alabama Elephants, Texas A & M losing to a Cream Puff and a basketball school beating the Mighty Florida Gators. BTW, that basketball school has a quarterback that couldn't win a starting job at Penn State so he transferred.


I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.

Yet just about every year the lowly SEC seems to be in contention for the National Championship…

The eternal hope, last years SEC dominance matters not. This year will be different, lol.

Historically a lot of these big college football teams have close games (especially early on) that no one expects, and it's a combination of the opposing team bringing their best to knock off the king of the hill, and more often than not, the king of the hill just isn't motivated enough to bring high intensity, and barely squeeks by, or gets it handed to them.

If all the marbles were on the table, it would have been different and brutal.

And Kentucky beating Florida doesn't make them a better football team, not really, not even close....Same with Texas and Alabama, not really, not even close.

It seems that teams play to the caliber of their opposition. Why? I have NO clue, but it happens every year. A powerhouse team dumbs down when playing someone they KNOW they should beat by 40+, but let them face a serious competitor the very next week and they’ll eat them alive and embarrass them. That’s college football…there’s always that one underdog that is not taken seriously and they’ll make you humble real quick.

Why so much hate for KY? They were ranked #20 coming into this season so it's not like they're exactly a cupcake. I expect to see KY in the top ten at some point this season, which, Nittany, is more than I can say for Penn St. Maybe they should have kept their quarterback?

We shall see. Apparently you don't know much about the Penn State quarterback situation.

Arkansas will surprise all of you if they get the secondary shored up. They remind me of the Alabama teams of old, that would just run at will grinding down the opposing defense.

There aren’t many pushover teams in the SEC this year. No one is a guaranteed win over another SEC competitor. You better be on your A game all season.

As expected, Bama dropped to #2.

It's GA, Bama, OH ST, Mich.

KYs up to 9, Ark is 10. Penn State has made the board at #22.

I didn't know KY would make the top 10 that quickly.

8 SEC teams in the top 25. Only 4 Big 10 teams.

Only issue is we’ll knock ourselves out of the rankings once we play.

But how many of those quarterbacks backs go on to be nfl stars? Not many.
