Default Big Ten goes 2-1 vs. SEC...

Excuses southern boys? The mighty SEC finished 1-2 vs. the Big Ten and is currently 2-3 overall with Auburn left to play. The Big Ten, which was an underdog for every bowl game ( just like in all 8 back in 2002 in which the Big Ten went 5-3 including OSU's win over Miami in the Fiesta), finished up at 3-3. These games were close, and down to the last second in some cases ( see Outback and Capital One Bowl).

Not going to to proclaim the SEC as a dead duck, or even say the Big Ten is vastly superior, but as the past few years show, the SEC is living off that early weak non-conf scheduling fat to get it's love.

It's close, that's all. Why can't everyone see that? Can't wait to watch the game tommorrow and see the SEC get named the " conference of God" all over again. Interesting to note that since the inception of the BCS, the Big Ten leads the SEC 10-9 in bowl games. Sounds pretty even to me.

I know, silly stats, hail to Dixie.

Of course, by "Southern Boys" we mean "TigerEyes" who also tanked his Purdue/ASU prediction...but I'm waiting to see how these last two games play out before I start talking too much smack...but I'm very confident USC and Virginia Tech will win.

All 3 of those Big Ten vs SEC teams were extremly close. I really don't know what to say about bama losing. That was my shoe-in. You know the story with LSU Iowa, easily could have gone LSU's way. I was really impressed with Ohio States romp over Oklahoma State but that was proven as not much after Tennesee routed Texas A&M. Still a good win though.

Who is the number 4 team in the big 10? Florida is #5 in the SEC and I'm confident they could beat them. The SEC had the toughest bowl schedule, but I still give credit to the teams that beat them.

Man, something I've been looking at all day. Our defense is pretty ausome. Led by Jim Davis and Darly Tapp on the D line. Good linebackers with freshman star Xavier Adibi and hard working Mike Baqque. A good secondary too led by Jimmy Williams. Lets shut em' down.

Please, put Auburn up against your champ, and see what happens.

man, Adrian Peterson is being shut down. On some plays he does nothing, when he gets a decent chance he tries to do too much. You can't out juke such a quick defense like USC's.
