    Auburn. 0-8 in the SEC. I'm not sold on the "gus bus" either.

    I think Arkansas was. They initially had lofty expectations to compete for a national championship and all of a sudden, no coach, the program is in disarray and they hire a temp coach who is $30MM in debt.

    Hard to vote for Auburn after last year's season and then the excuses they were making about being "young." I think everyone knew Auburn was a house of cards and the $180K was well spent money.

    the barn hands down. How do you buy a title in 2010 and fall off the radar 2 years later? What about all these top 10 recruiting classes? Now they hire the high school guy and think it's going to be better? LOL this is the guy that took pot smoking, gun loaning mike dyer with him to Ar. St. I think ole gus is the probation coach to get the barn through their upcoming mess. 4-8 next year at best.

    IMO it's auburn without a doubt. They were 2 years removed from a NC title, yet lost every conference game they played. That is, I believe, the biggest drop off in cfb history.

    The barn thought the same thing as well.

    They also lost 16 Seniors, 9 of which had 3 letters or more. They are crazy if they think they are competing with us next year (on tigerdroppings they honestly think that)

    While the bottom fell out at the barn, no one expected much from them. Arkansas was an experiment at best because of Petrino's bike ride. LSU however was supposed to be great this year. They had all that talent coming back this year from a team that was in the BCS title game and instead of responding to things like Bama 2009 did to the Florida loss in 2008, they fell apart and were not even in the NC title discussion by late October. They are the biggest loser because they lost the most and still are.

    Texas A&M, if they had stayed in the Big 12 things might have been very different for them.

    Hmmm. I would have them #2 on the winner's list next to us. Their inaugural year in the SEC had to exceed their expectations.

    I assume he's implying that aTm would've been a conference champion and might have found themselves in Miami playing Notre Dame.

    I picked R-Kansas.

    Petrino, to John L. Smith (SMILE!), all of that embarrassment and of course the season goes down the crapper. And this was a team that was thinking NC.
