SEC is the Toughest Conference in 2007

LSU is undisputed as the #1 team (despite fuzzy BCS math allowing LSU to leapfrog Georgia when Ohio State didn’t have to play anyone…).  Great news is that Georgia finished the season at #2, even receiving 3 first place nods.  This makes the SEC the first league since the Big 8 in 1971 to have… Read more

I was really dismayed about UGA’s loss to South Carolina, knocking us down to 22 in the rankings.  Last week, they looked good, but it wasn’t really a question going in who should have won.  But today… UGA came through in overtime and beat Alabama in Tuscaloosa 26-23.  Admittedly, Alabama looked great in the 4th… Read more
