DG – Volume 1

I am a college football nut.  A Bucknut to be exact.  I worship my Buckeyes, no matter how overrated or slow they are.  But if we can all agree the Big 10 has not been up to par the last few years, can we also all agree on the other truth in the room no one seems to be mentioning…wait for it…The Big 12 is completely overrated.  (I just heard one of my Big 12 colleagues slam his Death Cab filled iPod to the floor in disgust).  So I am watching College Football Live this week and the pretty boy ESPN mediocre ex-college football QB club is debating who is the best conference in the country between the Big 12 and the SEC.  I know it’s the off-season and you need to fill airtime, but what is there to debate?  Did the pretty boys watch the BCS title game?  It was vintage Chokelahoma – score a gazillion points against the ghost d’s of the Big 12, then when the big bad Sooners play the team from the best conference in the country, they squeak out 14.  And let’s not forget the whoopin’ the Ole Miss Rebels put on the “High Powered” Texas Tech Red Raiders in the Cotton Bowl.  And then you have Texas, the team we all know should have been playing Florida since they beat Chokelahoma by 10, and Mizzou, the Big 12 runner-up, needing big plays late to barely beat the overrated slow pokes in the Big 10 who are supposedly no match for the unstoppable, imaginative offenses of the Plains.  Hell, the Big 12 South, who the media fawned over last year like computer geeks do over the prom queen, came 16 seconds from going 0-4 in bowl games.  Listen, I live in the heart of Tebowica and hate the SEC as much as anyone, but to try and argue they are not the best conference in the country right now and over the last 5-10 years in CFB is laughable.  The SEC has 3 BCS titles in a row and the chosen one leading the campaign for a 4th.  The pretty boy club can fawn over the Crimson and Burnt Orange “juggernauts’ again all season, but we all know what the results will be come late December or early January – another mildly offensive overrated choke job.  Until next time…
