    A "down" team? In a BCS game?

    Yea ... In SEC land, Arkansas sucked last year and wasn't ever considered a contender. In garbage conferences, I guess Arkansas can still be considered a "contender"... not surprising.

    Sure...

    If you really want to watch competitive football where many teams have a tought schedule, you should really watch Big 12 football...

    In 2012, that was the conference who had the most difficult schedules in the aggregate...

    Talk about ignorance...[/QUOTE]

    Big 12 - The most difficult schedule of above average teams.

    SEC - The most difficult schedule of elite teams

    I'm not talking about last year....

    You brought up Ohio State playing against Florida and LSU...it's only fair that you also bring up when they beat Arkansas...that happened more recently (2011) than the losses against Florida (2007) and LSU (200...

    Ingram, Tate, Hardesty, McCluster, Ballard, Rainey, Locke, Ridley, Poole SEC There are some SEC boys who put up great stats or lets say "overinflated stats" playing in a wide open SEC. Even if you go back the last three years in the NFL leading rusher stats and look at the top 5 each year. 4 out of the 15 slots were SEC and those were Foster & McFadden each year. The SEC has talent no doubt. Alot of propects come from those schools. The Top RB this year is from the SEC but you don't line up the rest behind him because they are from the SEC. You want SEC guy that is your right...They could be a dud just like the next guy. History has shown it is equally true no matter what conference you play for. It is about individual talent. Wearing that SEC patch doesn't get you drafted.

    hahahahahahahahahah... i need a laugh today.

    No other conference has ever finished with more than three teams in the top 10 of the final regular season ranking of the BCS. And the SEC has six in the top 10, and all six are 10-game winners.

    Wow... that conference really sucks. A lot of teams are below average.

    Don't be mad because your local channels cable provider airs pee wee football every Saturday. There are other options such as Direct TV.

    no thanks...

    Kent Somers ‏@kentsomers:

    Interesting to see how other teams evaluate Beanie Wells right knee. #azcardinals were not optimistic about it.

    @kentsomers Beanie was shopping other teams before the season was over. No loyalty.

    @kentsomers Did he actually have microfracture surgery on that knee? Doesn't seem like he'd fit the tough Steeler mold.

    @kentsomers it looked like last year that his head was more of a concern than the knee. I don't think he wants to take or give hits anymore

    That should have been the end of the discussion, actually... I would make this argument about any player at any position - even if we didn't need one... QB, WR, whatever...

    Think of it this way... you're getting a 1st round talent in the 4th round... even if you don't get him fully recovered until next year... Try trading a 4th round pick this year for a 1st round pick next year... see what happens
