Look at the SEC top 25 opponents for 2014:  All 14 teams each play at least 3 ranked teams.  Auburn is playing 7.  We average 4.4 top 25 matchups per SEC team.  Zero for tOSU ranked as high as #6 in preseason polls.  I've attached links, I may have missed one but where's all the naysayers about the SEC being "down" this year and may not get into the playoffs, etc...?  How can anyone say we don't play anyone but each other (another lie).

Spurrier gets blasted for saying ECU would beat some of the lower rung Big 10 programs.  The top rung Big 10 program (tOSU) isn't playing any preseason top 25 teams.

I think one of the most interesting things about this new play-off system will be how the panel judges SOS of each team.

Auburn will play 7 preseason ranked teams.  3 at home and 4 on the road.
Alabama will play 4 ranked teams and only two of them are on the road. They will have a week off before going to Ole Miss and week off before traveling to LSU.

Just for the record, South Carolina will play 4 ranked teams 2 on the road and 2 at home.

I e had this argument with fans of teams in other conferences before...

Their logic pretty much goes like this:

During the season= the SEC is overrated. They get the benefit of the doubt because they are all ranked so high starting out.


After the SEC dominates bowl season= of course they did well in bowls, they were matched up with teams ranked lower than them

I expect UF and Mizzou to get in there, probably MSU as well. A&M will drop out, but I'm not sure it'll be after week one. SC will win, but they may not hold that against the Aggies too much since SC is a top 10 team. They'll probably drop them down to 25 or so unless they just get absolutely destroyed.
If the Aggies don't drop out after week 1, they will stay in for a while because they have a pretty long easy stretch after the USC game.

Good God you raped our defense that day? We had more 1st downs, more yards, yet you raped our defense right? First thing I'll admit is that SC was a much better team than we were that day. But for the 2010 season? No, I still disagree that whole heartedly. See our bowl game that year to see what the potential of that team was. Lattimore rushed for 93 yards on 23 carries. Ingram/Richardson ran for 64 yards on 17 carries. You guys did everything right that game, we didn't get any breaks. And remember, that was the 3rd game in a row we faced a ranked SEC opponent, 2 of them being away in a stretch that made them change the rules of scheduling. Not making excuses (again SC was the better team that day) but you will never convince me that the 2010 SC was better than 2010 Bama.
UK, coached by one Joker Phillips, beat USC in 2010 if that helps your case.

That pretty much slams the case shut.
