Will SEC Get Shut Out of BCS Title Game After Alabama Loss?
Written by  {ga=admin}

statonAfter four straight national championships, will the SEC get shut out of the BCS title game? There is no way to understand what Alabama's loss to South Carolina meant to the big picture. Just when a lot of people thought that the Crimson Tide was going to Glendale, the Tigers lose to South Carolina and throws the door open for just about anything.


With the first BCS standings set to be released on Sunday, the SEC has three teams in the Tip 10 of the coaches' poll (No. 7 Auburn, No. 8 Alabama and No. 9 LSU). Those three teams all have to play one another in October and November. Like it or not, if No. 1 Ohio State runs the table, the Buckeyes will be in the big game. So unless the Ohio State loses at Wisconsin on Saturday or at Iowa on Nov. 20, everybody is playing for No. 2. We said the same thing about Alabama. We know that a one-loss SEC team got to the big game in 2006 (Florida), 2007 (LSU actually had two losses) and 2008 Florida, but if you're an SEC fan, your teams have a tough uphill climb. There is going to be a lot of scoreboard watching in SEC territory the rest of the season...The difference between a doctor and a specialist that a specialist has a bigger boat...

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
