    And none of it came against good defenses either. If Barkley played in the SEC, I doubt Kiper would have him going in the first rnd.

    Re: Matt Barkley

    what's hilarious to me is that there are numerous college football scandals. and all those guys come into the nfl at some point and we are just supposed to believe that there are no cheating scandals at this level. it's absurd.

    Re: Matt Barkley

    There is a bit of a scandal right now with it having been revealed that USC has been underinflating game balls just a bit. The assumption that's been made is that this was due to Barkley having small hands. The underinflated balls make it easier for someone with smaller hands to grip the ball. If true, this is a significant red flag, one he may end up having in common with Claussen. The combine is going to be critical for Barkley. Now Tannehill's hands are a bit on the small side too, and he's doing pretty well with Miami. Teams are going to have to pay very close attention to Barkley, however.
    I've made up my mind. Don't confuse me with the facts.

    A wise man doesn't waste effort telling the world he's wise. If it's true, it will be self-evident.

    I'm not going to pretend like I watch every SEC game every weekend. But, judging by whats happened to the "best defense in the country" the last two weeks (Alabama). I think the SEC may be overrated this season.

    Had the exact same thought. Ill be curious to get Barkley's hand measurement at the Senior Bowl or Combine.

    EVERY team in the SEC plays defense well. No other conference in the entire Country plays defense as well as it is played in the SEC that is a fact.

    the SEC has 6 of the top 9 teams in college football for a reason.

    The league is loaded from top to bottom in O-line talent, and Defensive talent. There is nothing overrated about the SEC. The dominance of the SEC over the rest of college football is pretty real.

    As to Alabama, they lost to another SEC team. In fact the last few years i think 'bama's only losses have been in conference. That's just how strong the conference is. This year the disparity is particularly bad.
    Predicted Bills Record 5-11
    Actual Bills Record 6-10
    Prognostication Record 7-9


    You know what really sucks? We're now approaching a level of sustained craptitude not seen in the NFL since the pre-Plumber Cardinals or pre-Sanders Lions. Yeah... being a Bills fan really sucks right now.

    anyone who says the SEC is overrated is either from the North, or doesn't follow college ball.
