Although I am running about 60 percent (or so) on predictions for the college football post season, I certainly pegged the outcome of the Sugar Bowl. Even though Florida has had a very good season in the won vs loss department, anyone (except the faithful) who watched them had to come to the conclusion that they just were not as good as their record or ranking. Of course there is always (well usually) a bit of luck involved in having a great season (look at Notre Dame), but at some point luck will run out........Florida was not even on the same level as Bridgewater and Co. last night. Not even close.
I am beginning to wonder if the dominance of the SEC is becoming a thing of the past. It is proven that most of the power programs of that conference have a bit of trouble when faced with quickness. Right now Texas A&M is the best team in the SEC. It took a few games to work out the bugs to be sure but no one would want to face the Aggies offense right now. Kevin Sumlin has brought a different brand of football that is normally seen in conference. The SEC (along with the Big Ten) tend to favor power over speed offensively with hard nosed defense to stop the same. It could be that brand of football is becoming (for the most part) obsolete.
We will see.
