and he basically said the same thing. He hopes that we get buried in the ground because if we come in and win it will look bad on the SEC as a whole. He said the only team he wanted us to beat was Ole Miss.
SEC football in my mind reflects Big East basketball, over-rated to the point it elevates the lower teams to a higher status than they deserve. Granted the top SEC teams are great but the lower teams aren't that good and get their victories by scheduling directional schools from Louisiana and Mississippi and MAC schools. They get away with it because the SEC schedule is "brutal."
