Ask any old time SEC fan


Any "old time" SEC fan is going to hate Alabama because Alabama owned the SEC during those times. Any excuse as to why their team was getting owned by Bryant's Tide makes those losses all the easier to swallow.

Everyone points to Alabama's schedule this year as some sign of favoritism.

That's fascinating, considering the 2009 and 2010 years and what the Tide went through.

In 2009 Alabama, going undefeated, played 8 SEC teams. Of those 8, 7 had winning records and went on to Bowl Games. They also opened with Va Tech (a 10 win team), had to beat an undefeated Florida in the SECCG, and then beat an undefeated Texas in the Rose Bowl

In 2010, Alabama had to play 6 SEC squads who had a week off prior to playing them. That included drawing Florida and South Carolina from the East, as well as bowl-bound Tennessee (teams 1, 2 and T3 in the SEC East).

In 2011, after having played South Carolina twice, USCe rotated off the schedule and Vandy rotated on. Florida was in the second game of their swing against the Tide. Florida under achieved that year, winning only 7 overall games.

In 2012, Florida rotated off. Florida, of course, has a break out season. SEC officials, in an AMAZING amount of psychic power, accurately predicts this will happen when they first drew up the rotational schedule years ago.

The SEC, while making the 2012 schedule, moves Vandy off of Alabama's schedule for Missouri (an 8-5 team from the previous year, who had beaten Texas A&M, and narrowly lost by 1 score three times - to ASU, highly ranked KSU, and RG3 led Baylor). Once again, kudos to the SEC for being able to see that this team that was just shy of winning 11 games the previous year would have a worse record than Vanderbilt.

So basically it boils down to this:
Alabama has 6 West opponents (6 of 8 SEC games)
Tennessee as a permanent opponent (established in 1992, during a very good run for Tennessee)
Rotates 1 SEC East Team (previously 2 teams)


Wasn't this year's and next year's schedule made up on the spot because of the expansion? That means the schedules could be made up out of the blue with no rotation to answer to.

Any previous year's schedule can't be considered "fixed". I think the whole argument boils down to the ridiculous schedules of these two years.

Theories are things that can't be proven.

Alabama favoritism is a fricking fact, and if you can't see it/admit it, then you're a delusional homer.

An influx of entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurship has spiked in New Orleans, a city that suffered a population exodus and struggled to get back on its feet after Katrina's destruction. The Greater New Orleans Community Data Center says that 427 of every 100,000 adults in the city started a business between 2008 and 2010 -- the most recent period for which data is available -- compared to a national rate of 333 of every 100,000 during that time.

It is now one of the the fastest-growing cities in America, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Forbes recently called New Orleans one of the biggest brain magnets in the country, praising its "communal camaraderie and business incubators that have helped many of the startups get off the ground."

Question: Why would there be favoritism towards Alabama? What's in it for the SEC to stack the deck for one team? I'll hang up and listen.

Funny coming from the one poster who bases every opinion about LSU from this site.

You really are a piece of work. You fail to realize that you too are guilty of everything you accuse others of.
