re: Where Did The Negative Hog Fans Go?
Hey guys, when two or more teams have the same record in MLB, they show the names in alphabetical order... must mean the team with the lower letter is in the lower position in the standings... it's right in front of us.

Not sure why you are even sticking to that, your point is proven even more if you use the tiebreakers because we would be 10th
They don't use the end-season tiebreakers during the season because all of the head to heads haven't been played. That's the first tiebreaker so it's pointless to use it until that can be applied. Our conference record is the same as 3 teams we don't have a head to head against yet. That's why the publications use overall record as the tiebreaker during the year. This is nothing new.

That's literally why Alabama is listed ahead of us. Because we're the ones tied

That graphic shows Arkansas in 9th place, but he correctly stated we're tied for 8th place. You're trying to paint a picture but you ain't no Bob Ross.

Ok if we are going to use the logic of no tie breakers are used during the season that is fine. But we can't then choose to say we are 8th in the conference because of overall record as some sort of tiebreaker. This whole think is silly, though.

You'd better take it up with pretty much every media outlet then and let them know that. I'm not choosing anything. I didn't make these standings. The conference website itself uses overall record as the tiebreaker during the season for the very reason I just stated. I can't believe I'm having to hand-hold grown men through remedial logic.

The difference is that the media outlets are just sorting the teams... Not insinuating some fairy-tale tie breaker... If there was a number next to each team with Tennessee being one, all of the 4-4 teams would have a 5 next to them

If that were the case all of the 4-4 teams would be listed alphabetically as that is how they sort teams that are tied as you stated earlier. They aren't. It's blatantly obvious the overall record is the tiebreaker used. Keep arguing with what's in front of you. I'd suggest watching paint dry next.

Dude, I live with a bunch of women. Dull and pedantic seems comfortable and peaceful sometimes.

re: Where Did The Negative Hog Fans Go?
Hi everyone... Fun game to watch, until the last 10 minutes...

Really enjoyed the first half overall. Then something happened. Not sure what really, it is as if we don't have a coach or something. Anywho… Have a great day!
