Figured since we had a Pac-12 thread, I might as well start this.

USA Today Top 25 Pre Season Poll

4 LSU (2) 0-0 1296
5 Florida State 0-0 1116
6 Stanford 0-0 1101
7 Boise State 0-0 1065
8 Oklahoma State 0-0 933

11 Nebraska 0-0 814
12 South Carolina 0-0 779
13 Virginia Tech 0-0 767
14 Arkansas 0-0 750
15 TCU 0-0 687
16 Ohio State 0-0 631

22 Georgia 0-0 260
23 Florida 0-0 240

24 Texas 0-0 162
25 Penn State 0-0 161

As you can see, the SEC controls almost 1/3 of the top 25 alone , and being a fellow alumni of this conference, I couldn't agree more.

One other game that's over looked is UGA vs. Boise State. Who wins this game? I'm actually going to go against my homerism and side with Boise in this one, but it's difficult. UGA actually has to stop a good QB this time and they tend to struggle when that happens.

Dallas for about another three weeks, then I'm moving to Wyoming. Doing the whole career switch thing since architecture is a little to scary and unstable these days

Aggies threatening to bolt to the SEC again. Chumps. That's all the SEC needs, more talent to recruit in Texas. Aggies sure are dumb. They treaded water in the Big12, they'll get absolutely steamrolled in the SEC annually.

I think its a good move by them. Its the only chance they have of moving out from Texas' shadow. Yeah they will get beaten to a bloody pulp at first, but I think they could rise to be a mediocre program in the SEC where all the Texas kids can go to stay in-state and play in the "elite" conference.

I'm going with Boise State. I think UGA being ranked is kind of ridiculous, I mean they lost to Colorado last year and went 6-6.

I actually agree with you about A&M. They'd fit in pretty well in the SEC, and they'd probably make more money riding the middle of the SEC West than they would in the middle of the Big 12 South. It definitely wouldn't be a negative for recruiting either. The only downside is a tougher schedule with the SEC schedule and an annual game against Texas.

SEC East would have to find another school then to balance things out. I heard a rumor about Clemson maybe being the mix but having two death valleys in one conference would be piss me off (LSU Homer). Its a good move by A&M IMO, considering the BEVO network will dilute the Big-12's revenue a little more.
