One good thing about bowl games

The Dead Guy has a post up about the SEC’s bowl record since 1997 worth taking a peek at.

The weird thing is that during that period, the SEC has a losing record in bowl games with only one conference – the Big East.

Only two schools have been to a bowl game every year since 1997.   And only one school in the conference has won eight bowl games in that time.  Not too shabby, Dawg fans…

Four score and seven years ago…

our fathers brought forth on this continent… well, whatever they intended, I doubt it was for Congress to declare the BCS unconstitutional.

… Abercrombie said a system that limits automatic berths to six conferences “is restraint of trade. The automatic qualifiers are still taking care of themselves. I’m saying regardless of what good intentions may be behind this, it’s restraint of trade. It’s illegal. It’s unconstitutional.”

He said the best way to resolve the matter would be with a playoff system. All other NCAA football levels have playoffs.

“Do the Warriors work less hard than the (Ohio State) Buckeyes?” Abercrombie said. “I don’t think so. Why should they be treated differently? Why shouldn’t they have their turn?”

Abercrombie said he expects support from states whose teams did not qualify for the title game.

“I bet I can go to Kansas and Missouri,” Abercrombie said. “Ohio won’t be so anxious. … It depends on whose ox is getting gored. I think everyone sees the justice in this (proposal).”

The good news is that this won’t cost the taxpayers anything. And if Abercrombie can find that al-Qaeda’s got something to do with the BCS, or that Mike Slive is an illegal alien, he’s got himself a winner.
