    Re: "The Biggest Loser", SEC Football 2012

    In the poll I put down little aubie as the biggest loser. But after I had clicked that, got to thinking about expectations for a season. With aubie probably thought to win six games, seven at best this past year, and only posting three wins, it probably wasn't as bad as the outcome for Arkansas. Until last spring the common line of thinking was this team,Arkansas could challenge for the National Title. They fell way short of anything resembling a team of that caliber.

    It's API & it has Nothing to do with their record. It's exposure. I know the nation got to see the kind of crazy cult crap we have had to endure.

    Its just a very bad place to send your kids.

    I chose Auburn. Another coaching change, a dismal season, and their in state rival currently owns the CFB world. Auburn is about to seriously sink to depths even they aren't accustomed to.

    It was a tough choice, but with the Barn, well, just because. If I were an Ole Miss fan I might have given it more thought. Missouri was a close second for me.

    As did I. UGA was supposed to compete for the SECCG and did so. So was LSU and sorta did so. UF was still rebuilding. AU was a known "train wreck" coming into the season. No one else except Mizzou was really expected to do much and failed so hard.

    I picked API with Mizzou a close second. I never thought the barn would do that poorly but was wonderfully surprised!

LSU was a close second for me - they were very close to winning it all the last 2 seasons and just couldn't get past Alabama. With their losses to the NFL, their window is also closing.

    I didn't choose Auburn because their fall began last year. I didn't choose the Gators because they are a program on the rise. I didn't choose Arkansas because their fall occurred in the off-season.

    I agree on all points. The Dawgs had a great chance and made a great effort, but no championship for them. That's gotta hurt.

    Re: "The Biggest Loser", SEC Football 2012

    There are several disappointments, but only one biggest loser. I was disappointed with LSU, MSU and Florida, not just because they lost their bowl games, but because they started off with a great deal of promise and then collapsed. That must be infuriating for their fans, not that I'm shedding any tears. But for a highly-self-regarded program like Auburn, two years removed from a championship, to become the SEC patsy makes them definitely the biggest loser.

    I would have picked Auburn, but didn't want them to even win biggest loser, so I pick Arkansas, so much hype before the season and then ...

    Depends on where you start the clock. If you're considering the year as starting after last season's bowls, Arkansas. They were a preseason title contender.

    If you start it on opening day, Auburn in a cakewalk.
