  1. Thinking about this the other day. As much as I don't like the SEC, when I broke it down into it's respective parts there are very few schools in the league that I don't like. Actively Dislike: (Yep only two) Missouri - some good old fashioned left over Big 8 hate here South Carolina - The hail mary before half time/(somewhat recent) loss to them coupled with the images of dbags in college wearing "c$%ks" hats and thinking they were the funniest thing ever,.... caused me to root against them. A silly reason perhaps but it's a free county. Change The Channel: (Teams I don't necessarily hate but aren't interested in watching them. If they're in a bowl game or something I'd probably root against them) Arkansas Texas A&M - not going to watch them but I like what they did to Texas by leaving the 12. Now they can tell all those Texas kids "come play in the best conference in the country and stay in your home state." I really think it's effected Texas recruiting, hats off to them. Ole Miss MSU Alabama: (Yes, they are their own category) Alabama - If they are playing anyone with a heartbeat it's a big game. Also they kind of remind me of us in our hayday, we were awesome and everyone hated us. I do not like them but I respect their brand of football. Saban on the otherhand,....unless you're a Bammer who doesn't hate the guy? On The Fence: (might tune in, might not) Kentucky Vandy - feel bad for these guys, in a non-con setting or a bowl game *smirk* I might check them out, even root for them. Auburn - Actually prefer them to Alabama (I'm told you have to pick a side) Teams I Actually Like LSU - Not sure why but always kind of dug them. Tennessee - Reminds me of us now, a storied program with past success trying to get rolling again. Plus the beat down in 97 helps their cause. Florida - Father-in-laws alma mater, Wife is from Florida, her 2nd favorite team, watched a lot of their games, also it was always fun watching Spurrier's antic's coupled with them being at the receiving end of the pinnacle of our own awesomeness. Georgia - Our victory against them recently helps. I also liked the story of Richt (yes I realize he isn't there anymore) getting in trouble for paying his assistants out of his own pocket, probably the most honorable broken rule in SEC history. So what about you guys? Break down your SEC by team.
  2. QUIZ: SEC football opponents or unaccredited universities? I got 13 out of 14. I loved this one: ".......... was busted after it sold a $299 diploma to a deputy attorney general's cat."
  3. LINK Definitely something that is going to be scrutinized until change occurs. What say you, Huskerboard?
  4. People on this board, when they look at our performances on the field ask the question, whether aloud or in their heads, "How would we do if we were in the SEC, the Big XII, the Pac 12, and to a much lesser extent, the ACC?" The answers to those questions, at least for the 2012 questions can be found here as I'll be looking at how Nebraska's performance in the 2012 season would have fared in the SEC, Pac 12, Big XII, and the ACC, the legitimate BCS conferences. How did I get here: Using a multitude of variables, I created a database with all of the data from Nebraska and from the SEC, Pac 12, Big XII, and ACC. In order to create a fair comparison, those stats were standardized as if they were measured using the same scale. Then, through the use of a cluster analysis, four distinct clusters were identified, and the means on those standardized values (as well as the unstandardized wins value) were compared. So all that being said, here's how Nebraska would have fared in the Southeastern Conference, the best conference in the nation. The Worst The season was a struggle for these teams in the SEC. They averaged just .67 conference wins and 7.33 conference losses. In comparison to the rest of the SEC, these teams: Offensively: These teams were 2nd in attempted passes but 3rd in completed passes. However, their completed passes did not go for many yards, as they came in last in pass yards, yards per completion, and completion to touchdown percentage. In the running game, these teams didn't run the ball very often, coming in 3rd in rush attempts. They also weren't very effective at running the ball, as these teams came in last in rushing yards, yards per carry, and attempts to touchdown conversion. In the turnover department, these teams had trouble holding onto the ball, having the 2nd most turnovers in the conference. Defensively: Opponents of these teams didn't attempt to pass the ball very much as these teams faced the 3rd fewest pass attempts. But teams found mixed success in the passing game ranking 2nd in completions, pass yards, and completions to touchdowns allowed, but 3rd in yards allowed per completion. The combination of these results suggest that opponents mostly ran the ball down the field, threw the occasional pass in the drive, then passed a lot in goal line situations against these teams. The reason opponents ran the ball so much against these teams is because these teams' run defenses were atrocious throughout the year. These teams faced the 2nd most rushing attempts, but allowed the most rush yards, rush yards per attempt, and rush to touchdown conversion. These guys also had problems forcing opposing teams to make mistakes, ranking 3rd in turnovers forced. Strength of Schedule: The wins column may be misleading for these teams, as they faced the toughest schedules in the entire conference. So either they just weren't good period, or they were good, but the teams they faced were just flat out better. Who Are They? Would you think Nebraska belongs to this group of teams? If you do, you'll have to guess again. The teams who belong to this cluster are: Auburn, Kentucky, and Missouri.
  5. 3 Reasons why I think Husker Nation should be rooting for Georgia to win the National Championship: 1.They will deny Alabama a chance to win back-to-back championships, a feat that only Nebraska has accomplished in college football history. 2. Georgia is a respectable team led by a respectable head coach (Mark Richt), who happens to hail from Omaha and grew up a husker fan. 3. And maybe most importantly, as much as SEC dominance is annoying, the whole country loses when Notre Dame wins a national title.
  6. I can't wait to see how Dan Beebe spins this into Nebraska's fault. Again. Oh - wait... I forgot that Dan Beebe is no longer relevant. My bad! Anyway, the news:
