    The fans have spoken and it appears that numbers really never lie, as Alabama's defense was picked by our readers in our SportsNation poll as the best the SEC had to offer in 2012.

    The question arises each year, “who played the toughest schedule?” At the end of the season, the NCAA usually releases a rating of each team’s schedule based on their opponents’ win/loss record. This is a good method but it does have its obvious flaws including the fact that a 6-6 FCS team is counted the same as a 6-6 Michigan State team that lost 5 games by a combined 13 points this year and 12-1 Northern Illinois is counted the same as 12-1 Alabama.What makes my Toughest Opponents Faced rankings far superior to the NCAA method is that mine takes into account 9 sets of power ratings, combines them and factors in every team’s schedule this year. I also take out the team’s own record from their opponents stats so the numbers only reflect only how their opponents did against other teams. For example, Notre Dame’s opponents are listed as 83-50 (62.4%), if you add Notre Dame’s record they would be 83-62 (57.2%). I did this for all the NCAA teams & found out which teams played the toughest schedules this year.

    The four new head coaches in the SEC are busy finalizing their staffs, and a few assistants are simply changing addresses within the league. Below is a snapshot of what the new staffs look like to this point. Tennessee’s Butch Jones is the only one of the four who’s completed his staff:

    Looks like UK and Stoops did the best, with the barn, UT(Cincy south) and arky (UW south) bringing up the rear, IMO.,,,we look better and better on next years sched.

    Tiger Stadium's south end zone scoreboard is down and gone forever as LSU presses on with a6,900-seat expansion. The project cost is an estimated $85 million and will put capacity just short of 100,000 in time for the 2014 football season
