The problem with “Recruiting rankings matter”…

… is that if you take the concept far enough, Alabama would never lose another SEC Championship game.

Or any conference game, for that matter.

Another season of “It’s Not the Year of the Quarterback in the SEC”

Man, this ain’t pretty.

Some of it’s splitting hairs, sure, and of a your guess is as good as mine nature.  But any list that has the Florida and LSU quarterbacking situations middle of the pack is somewhat questionable.

If you can’t beat ‘em, make ‘em join you.

Jason Kirk takes note of something I’m sure is purely coincidental on certain folks’ part.

The ACC, Big 12, and Pac-12 have been kicking around the idea of reviving the ban on first-year players competing in, specifically, college football and men’s basketball. Sure, most pre-1972 rules about broad groups of people being barred from select activities would work great in modern settings. The Big Ten is also reportedly interested in the conversation.

No, this has nothing to do with Kentucky basketball being favored to win its second title in four years thanks to mastering the art of one-and-dones. The fact that the four conferences most interested in the idea are the power conferences Kentucky isn’t a part of? Happenstance. The fact that these four conferences also annually trail the fifth in freshmen who are ready to play college football is another coincidence.

Gives new meaning to the phrase “SEC Speed”, eh?

Beyond their wildest dreams

South Carolina AD Ray Tanner predicts the SEC Network, in its first year of operation, will distribute at least $5 million dollars to each conference school.

To put that in perspective,

… back in 2013 (six years after the launch of the Big Ten Network), Big Ten schools received $7.6 million apiece from the network.

Enjoy those noon starts, SEC fans.  They ain’t going away any time soon.
