As to SEC bias, check out the list of national champions, bowl wins, draft picks and any other measure from 2000 on. Other than Ohio St, Clemson and Oklahoma, it is the SEC's show. The SEC has earned it.
Congrats to San Diego St. After watching BYU destroy the "national champion" UCF Knights (whom Cincy beat by 3 points), it confirms that Coastal Carolina has a pretty good team.
In the win or go home SEC world, there are 3 dismissals at Vandy, SCar and Auburn. Combined with last year, 6 of the 14 members have new coaches. Tenn's Jeremy Pruitt is on thin ice. And you heard it here first, there could be a change at LSU. There is an ugly Title IX lawsuit coming up that even Coach O may not survive. We already know that their hoops has been caught giving cash to players. Can you say "lack of institutional control". The Bayou Bengals may have sold their soul to win the Natty last year. Finally, we have the curious case of Louisiana coach Billy Napier who has turned down Miss ST, Ole Miss, SCar and Auburn (booster control seems to be the issue there). Napier is very confident that he can get the lottery job and it may well be LSU.
