ok, i'll concede on KY. But NOT Ole Miss that year. 2-10 dude!
anyhow, back to my original point.....
The '11 team obviously had 3 games where they could have just laid low and played lackluster football, yet still win......but they did not. They played their cupcake opponents (however you define or identify those teams) with the same level of intensity as a top 10 opponent.
I don't see Ole Miss as a cupcake. I remember one year those bastards had nary an SEC win all season but sure as hell took a BCS bowl winning LSU team to overtime, scratch that we had to take them to OT to win.
I can appreciate you and Stacy O's point, I just respectfully disagree.
on a side note: as i was looking at Old Piss' record for that season I found that they counted their spring game as a W, and show that season's record as 3-10 instead of 2-10! Talk about a STRETCH!
Your point is not invalid, either, but we've struggled with UK and OM enough over the years that I don't want to call them cupcakes. Now, playing OM in '11 looked like pros playing a middle school team, but I think of a cupcake as a school that really doesn't beat the big guys--except once in a blue moon, like Appy State and Michigan, like ULM with Bama, etc.
Maybe I'll concede 2011, especially since LSU possibly became the first team to kneel on the ball with 5 minutes left. Talk about an embarrassment, I just know before that game, I was worried they would play us hard and we would struggle and eventually wear em down in the 4th.
I'm still ticked that Sam Montgomery played down to the competition...I think I'm glad he left early because of that.
Wow, that is so lame. Almost as lame as their banner as 2003 SEC West co-champions, even though we beat them straight up.
They deserve a trophy for participating. Everyone is a winner. There are no losers....just like in T-ball. They cleaned their plate and deserve to go to recess early...they don't have to wait for the bell. They're not in time out like Bama.
