SEC fans love taking credit for success of those in the conference that have nothing to do with their program. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m a Big 12 fan, I root for the conference, as I cover it. But when Texas A&M fans treat Alabama national championships as their own, it’s strange, bizarre and incredibly lame.
By comparison, Texas Tech fans might root for Oklahoma in a theoretical National Championship game. But they’ll root for OU because its good for the Big 12 Conference and then the next day they’ll worry about how to improve their team and program. Texas A&M fans will argue with Pac-12, Big 12, Big Ten and ACC fans all day for an entire offseason about how awesome they are because well, they play Alabama and lose to them by four touchdowns. S-E-C! S-E-C!
Anyway, I got sidetracked there. But I wanted to check to see if other SEC programs wanted to brag about this unique tidbit that surfaced this week.
What do you think?
Will there be much SEC bragging over the way the Florida Gators’ 2008 team ended up with 1/3 of the roster ending up being arrested. Sure they had the golden boy in Tim Tebow, but there was also Aaron Hernandez and a slew of other bad apples.
Or is this what they always meant with the SEC slogan, “it just means more”? So much more that they’re willing to recruit criminals? Hm.
