I’m not a bandwagon fan – I actually went to college at Mississippi State – SEC – specifically, the SEC West. If you’re a true sports fan, you’re objective. Having said that, the SEC naysayers were RIGHT! We sucked it up in the bowl games – the SEC West dropped the ball as a whole; no pun intended. ‘How the West was won’ consisted of only TWO TEAMS winning and they were in the bottom half of the division! I enjoyed the dream season my alma mater experienced this year, as anyone would – but at the end of the day (season), if you don’t have (what used to be) the crystal ball, ya ain’t got nothin’! I predict the CFP golden trophy will make the pacific northwest its home for the nest year…
I, for one, am thrilled to finally have a playoff system – looking forward to the day they increase it to eight teams – it will happen; eventually.
