Couldn't sell but half of their ticket allotment. Ouch.
That kind of thing is good for us when it comes bowl selection time every year.
I'm pulling to the Cards, fuck Muschump!! Cheatin mofo!
Yet another SEC team looking bad in their bowl. Am starting to think the SEC is really down this year which doesn't bode well for us on Friday.
Florida beat FSU and SC beat Clemson. These teams don't care about these bowl games and are playing like it.
Seriously? SC beat Clemson pretty bad, UF beat FSU, Bama slaughtered Michigan, UGA Slaughtered Georgia Tech
I'm talking about bowl season. Thanks.
Again, I'm talking about bowl performances. In the same way, the PAC12 has looked weak based on bowl results. You can say the SEC teams don't care about their bowls, but the fact is that all were favored to win and in many cases win big.
For those that are down voting, you think LSU, UF, and USCe have performed as expected? Really? Good grief.
Everyone wants to prove they can beat an SEC team...SEC teams want to play for the natty or bust
Your logic is boggling my mind
I love it when people whine about down voting.
If the SEC wins, then great it makes us look good.. If they lose, well im okay with that as well.. Especially the teams ranked above A&M. I want a top 5 finish.
I think the down votes are because you're pissing your pants over Oklahoma because two teams with non-existent offenses got beat by teams with explosive offenses.
And south Carolina won, dunno why you lump them in with lsu and Florida.

florida is getting undressed. the sec haters will start beating their drums.
Who's pissing their pants? Have you read the 'honest' CB predictions thread?
On USCe, they were a top 10 SEC team playing an 8-4 (if I recall) UM team who was embarrassed by Bama. I'd say that most did not expect them to need an incredible play on at the end of the game just to win.
How in the hell are you talking about bowls when you say the SEC is down this year? If you're talking about other SEC schools bowl performances, how does that affect us?
My point exactly. Texas A&M is not affected whatsoever by the rest of the SEC's performance.
And it doesn't fucking matter that USC ALMOST lost. They won the game. Say whatever the fuck you want, the bottom line is that they won. And that is the only thing that matters.

There are a couple of ways to look at the relative strengths of conferences the end of the season. Certainly, looking at the teams' overall body of work during the season against non-conference foes is a measure. Another way to look at it is based on conference bowl records. Certainly, there is a recency advantage this way although none are perfect. There have been a few articles around on this method. At least one speculated on the SEC winning all their bowl games this year as a sign of continued dominance. In my view, bowl results to date for the SEC have not reinforced the perception of being the best conference in the country. Hopefully that changes with blow outs of OU and ND. But seriously, if you've believed the SEC is clearly the best, are you more or less confident in that assessment based on the bowl games played to date?
The other clarification here is that many have said that it's been a down year in the SEC. Clearly few expected Arky and Auburn to be as bad as they were. I haven't really subscribed to that belief as the conference is deeper than those teams. But when you see teams struggle against perceived weaker competition (e.g., UF was a 14 pt favorite against UL), it makes one wonder.
Surprising that this would be so controversial to discuss.
Yeah, I don't think you can base it on bowl games alone either. Too many days between the last game of the season and the bowl game to ever know how representative an outcome is. It's just one of many ways to try and evaluate relative strength.
I thought UF would win this one going away. That's why I don't gamble.
