Interesting Moments to Remember in the SEC.

The SEC – The Tiffany Football Conference?

SEC Football fans, like it or not, know that the SEC is the trendy, good ole boy conference. The game tonight broadcast in prime time on CBS with Verne Lundquist and Bob Griese was so boring (Alabama 31 & Florida 06) that they were talking about old players and their modern day sons’ relevance in the college game. These sports analysts never drew any comparisons against Florida #7 and the Play of #10 Arkansas against a great Alabama team. Instead they spoke of Florida’s “past” darling quarterback of the last, too long, five years “Tim Tebow” and his “Breakfast at Tiffany ” coach Urban Meyer as if they were like dynasty of the lost King Tut’s Tomb.

Alabama vs Arkansas
Alabama #1 (24) Arkansas #10 (20) 09/25/10

Florida, ranked #7, is not worthy of that rank based upon their play against Alabama tonight. Last week, Arkansas came into their game with #1 Alabama ranked #10. Arkansas lost in the fourth quarter to Alabama 24-20. A tragic loss for The Hogs in the last part of the fourth quarter.

It is amazing to me that the CBS sports crew never made a comparison between the Arkansas game with Alabama & the Florida-Alabama game of today. The Razorbacks outplayed #7 Florida and were subsequently dropped to #15 after their loss to #1.

Florida Gators Football
Alabama #1 (31) Florida #7 (06) 10/02/10

I cannot wait to see the drop in rank of the Gators after their loss to #1 Alabama tonight. I would bet that it is no lower than 3 -4 places or maybe to #10. They are the prima donnas of college football and Arkansas is looked upon as the “Rodney Dangerfield” of college football.” Arkansas… They never get no respect!”

Hey there, Gator Fans, Rant to me… But please ask your “Mommy” for permission!? You’ll not use the BMW next week  if you don’t!

    Thank you! I finally came to a site where the webmaster knows what they’re talking about. Do you know how many results are in Google when I search… too many! It’s so annoying having to go from page after page after page, wasting my day away with thousands of people just copying each other’s articles… bah. Anyway, thank you very much for the info, much appreciated.

    The Latest AP Rankings:
    Sunday – 10/03/10

    Alabama #1 (still) as they should be
    Nebraska #7 was Florida
    Florida down to #14
    Arkansas #11 up from #15

    The Nite Ranter must admit that The Razorbacks finally Got “some” respect at least from the Associated Press.
    The AP NCAA College Football Rankings seem to be fair & on target to the Nite Ranter.
    PS: Sorry Anonymous, but you were way wrong, Guy/Gal? But thanks for the opinion(s)!
