CNN Sucks

25 August 2014 - 09:58 PM

CNN is going to hurt themselves with all of these assumptions with the Michael Brown case. When did reporting become guessing, seeming, and reporting on rumors?  If this was journalism when I was in the business I would have been ashamed to call myself a reporter. The goal of CNN, Fox News, MSNBC or any other media company should be to cover any event, not feed the story. Truth should be what matters. At least that was what I was taught and my goal on every story I ever covered.

SEC vs Ranked Opponents

05 August 2014 - 11:34 AM

If you’re not a fan of South Carolina, Alabama or LSU, chances are you’re pretty embarrassed about your team’s performance against ranked opponents the last three years.

The only way to assess your team’s performance against ranked opponents is to check the end of the year rankings and assess the damage. The below chart reflects the final rankings of thelast three years of the USA Today Coaches’ Polls and AP Polls.

While Alabama really dominated the BCS era, especially over the last several years under Nick Saban, South Carolina has dominated ranked opponents to the tune of 12-3 (.800). Only Carolina, Alabama and LSU are over .500 against ranked teams, and only USC and LSU are over .500 against top 10 opponents. Ironically, Steve Spurrier has as many SEC Championship rings to show for it as I do.

On the contrary, three SEC teams haven’t beaten ranked opponents the last three years: Vanderbilt, Kentucky and Mississippi State.

Interestingly, Alabama and Vanderbilt have played the fewest ranked opponents over the time period, while four teams – Auburn, Florida, Ole Miss and Tennessee – have played the most with 17.

Here’s a look – and, please Carolina fans, it’s okay to gloat:
Rank Team Record Win % Top 10 1 South Carolina 12-3 0.800 5-2 2 Alabama 8-4 0.667 4-4 3 LSU 9-5 0.643 6-5 4 Texas A&M 5-10 0.333 1-6 5 Georgia 5-11 0.312 2-9 6 Florida 5-12 0.294 3-7 7 Auburn 4-13 0.235 3-8 8 Missouri 3-12 0.200 0-8 9 Arkansas 2-11 0.154 1-8 10 Ole Miss 2-15 0.118 0-9 11 Tennessee 2-15 0.118 1-12 12 Vanderbilt 0-12 0.000 0-8 13 Kentucky 0-13 0.000 0-8 14 Mississippi State 0-15 0.000 0-9

It's nothing serious, so all Gamecock fans take a breathe and all you UGA, UT, and UF fans don't jizz your pants.

Minor hamstring, but SOS says he will be 100% before practice starts.
