What is the most inflated/deflated SEC rivalry?
For this board...when i say inflated, i mean the level of intensity is drastically higher here than in the rest of the SEC footprint. Deflated would be the opposite-It's mostly overlooked here, but is much bigger in the SEC footprint

I enjoy playing LSU, but wish we were more competitive with Mizzou. I think if there were more action, it would help both Mizzou and Arkansas. I don't think it will happen anytime soon though.

Iron Bowl. Doesn't have any real stakes, CFP has made it easier for Bama to backslide into championship games

Bama-UT the most inflated

There used to be so many great "deflated" rivalries.

UF-UT Spurrier vs Fulmer
LSU-Arky (When Nutt and Petrino were at Arky)

Maybe LSU vs UF now

This, but on the other hand it's always been real streaky.

Overrated is LSU /A&M - the battle to be 3rd best in the west, forced rivalry, less interesting than the Egg bowl. Last game was a disgrace to defense

True, under the new CFB Playoff format.

Auburn did keep Bama out in 2013. Had they not won that Kick6 game, I think Bama would have easily defeated Missouri and likely would have defeated Florida State.

Lsu/BAMA is inflated. They’ve scored 10 total points in the past 3 years

That was ancient history.... just like when it was a "rivalry".

It's no longer really a rivalry and its past the point of being "streaky".

1948-1960: UT 9-1-3
1961-1964: UA 4-0
1965-1970: UT 4-1-1
1971-1981: UA 11-0
1982-1985: UT 4-0
1986-1994: UA 8-0-1
1995-2006: UT 10-2
2007-2018: UA 12-0

The 12-0 streak has now surpassed any other streak in the series, and the thing is, the scores have been way more lopsided that in past streaks.

During this 12-game winning streak, Bama has won the games by 2, 5, 14, 20, 24, 31, 31, 31, 35, 37, 38, and 39 points.... only twice was there a close game and the average point differential has been nearly 26 points.

That's not a rivalry. Not anymore. It takes some semblance of competitiveness for it to be a rivalry.

Heck Auburn nearly beat them despite a swiss cheese defense in the second half. That Bama defense would not have allowed FSU to score in the second half like that.

Another thing about this is that yes, while its been "streaky" in the past, Tennessee's streaks are like 4-0 or something small while Bama often goes on a 10+ game win streak.

Since 1960, Bama is 38-18-2 against the Vols. That's frankly not even close.

2013 Florida State is the one team since 2009 that had more talent than Alabama across the board in a given season. That team was absolutely stacked with good NFL players.

Especially since UF leads UG 32-26-1 during that same timeframe.
