Dding, ding, ding...this type of scheduling coupled with a relatively weak OOC schedule creates a self fulfilling prophecy.
I think aggy has a lot more balance than Oregon and a much better and physical OL. aggy has three first round draft picks on that OL. They can control the LOS against anyone and having a QB like Manziel who can extend plays with his feet and take off make them even more dangerous. Bama did a terrible job preparing for that game against aggy and once they fell behind by three scores they were in trouble. It also didn't help that Saban went away from the run game that was having so much success (Lacy was averaging nearly 6 yards per carry and they stopped giving him the ball!)
Better Oregon teams have played SEC teams worse than this Alabama team and struggled. I don't think this time would be any different.
This and they all seem to play 8 home games a year against nothing but cupcakes and conference foes (the exceptions being Georgia, South Carolina, and Florida who all have legit OOC rivals).
So, who is in your top 10?
Well... part of this chant was heard tonight. SEC...SEC...SEC...
I guess even a blind squirrel finds a nut every once in a while....
One year. Act like you've been there before. Oh wait, you can't help yourself.
What was poster saying about Bama falling behind by 21 to 'Aggy' and then being in trouble. At least Bama scored points and came back to make it close. Man, OU is so over-rated. That whole chump conference is turrible. And dont even get me started about whorn. They suck harder than a prison punk.
whatcha think now bobby?
This thread is greatness.
"Failure is my greatest fear. Yours is probably heights or spiders or some silly shit."
So you guys have one good season out of 20. We dominated an entire decade! Won BCS bowls and a NC. How many BCS bowls do you guys have? NCs? And no, not the made up ones... come back when you guys do it for 10 straight years... idiots!
What a great read this was.
Hahahaha! So where is this vaunted Big 12 offense we heard so much about? Thought for sure they'd muster more than one TD, which was aided by a blatant holding penalty that went uncalled... Surely you guys haven't regressed this much in just one year since we were in the league. One would think anyway...
Manziel played great. The Aggie defense stiffened in the first half when there was some pressure on them. Very impressed last night.

Agreed. Perfect ending to a perfect storm of a season for the Ags. Always glad to see someone take down OU. I tip my hat to them.
So the Aggies might squeak into the burton top 10?
This is the greatest thread ever, hey bobby! Again who you got in your top ten bobby!! I wish I could post this on ESPN main page and watch the whole world laugh at you. You mad?

This is SEC Country.
Now sit back with popcorn and watch Bama thoroughly dismantle Notre Dame. When teams mostly play pansies week in and week out, you're unprepared for big time.
A&M would love to play Texas a legit OOC rival, but poor Deloss Dodds can't make room in his schedule. Who is your guys tough OOC game?
The Big 12's best two teams just lost by a combined score of 45 points in their bowl games. I'd be careful about who you call overrated. Let the chips fall Monday night and then lets tally up who had more suck as a conference whole this season.
Lots and lots of butthurt in this thread
Where is that Top 10 Bobby?
