    Looks like deciding factor was SEC record. If so, why bother posting the other stats (ie. the ones we beat Florida in?)

    I guess if you look at it;

    4 push columns (record, sec title games, sec titles, national titles)
    3 Florida wins (W-L Sec, W-L top 25, top 25 finish)
    2 LSU wins (Bowl Wins, and top 10 finishes)

    so 3 to 2 Florida.
    kinda makes sense.

    Crazy that LSU had 2 5-loss seasons and did not finish ranked in either. Florida had 3 5-loss seasons , and finished two of them ranked #25 and the other ranked #24.

    Really all that matters is both have 2 BCSNC trophies... that speaks enough for both teams.

    Seriously, it's arguing for the opinion of a writer as top team in the SEC for the decade. The fact we are in the argument shows where we're at. Truthfully, I would give the nod to Florida because they have more momentum ending the decade than we do and they had a better head-to-head record against us (barely though, 6-4)

    Not really... they ended the decade with a loss to Bama, we ended it with a win over Arky. I'd say we finished stronger.
