    That makes sense. When Alabama got beat by Utah, they did a complete 180 and started a 4 year streak of dominance and haven't looked back since. The loss Florida suffered to Louisville could have been the best thing to happen to them. Now they have nothing to lose and everything to prove. 2013 is Florida's year to prove themselves.

    the difference with Florida's "utah" moment though is that other than QB they have a ton more talent than we did during our "utah" moment. I voted for Vandy. I mean, when was the last time you turn the tube on and see Vandy playing in a bowl game and winning easily. when is the last time you could say Vandy and 7 game winning streak in the same sentence.

    You summed up my thoughts exactly. I'm not buying this ESPN creation of Johnny football no more than the Honey Badger.

    Bama had one bad quarter & it was awful but still had a shot at the end. ONE player does not a team make you would think after the last 2 years others would get it.

    Georgia is on the rise really played us tough.

    "Second Biggest Winner", SEC Football 2012

    A&M easy but I'm super impressed by Franklin. FL and GA have no excuse for "getting back". They have SOOOOO much talent in those two states that they should be perennial contenders.

    Aggies by far. This was their first year in the SEC and many folks, including me, expected them to set up a temporary homestead in the conference cellar. I sure didn't expect them to win that many games, much less come into BDS and beat us in the fashion they did. My hat's off them for their superior performances.

    I would have selected Florida if they had taken care of business in the Sugar Bowl; however, I think Teddy Bridgewater just threw another touchdown pass against them. Georgia finally stepped up in a few big games this year, but they also pulled a Georgia against South Carolina. I had to give it to Texas A&M. They only lost two close games against top-10 opponents early in the season, and they were playing great toward the end of the season.

    I also get tired of all of the hype that networks use to sell product; however, that is also what allows me to watch so much college football for free. Therefore, I tolerate the hype. However, I do wonder who you watched this year if you weren't impressed with Manziel. That team was more than just him. They have two guys who will go in the first round, and they would have had a third if Mathews had come out.
    No, Manziel is no Cam Newton; I believe he broke Cam's records that we thought were unbreakable. Georgia may very well be tough next year, but I will have to see them go an entire season without pulling a Georgia in a big game or two before I believe in them.

    Gotta go with A&M, but both Ole Miss and Vanderbilt are close behind. All three fanbases are probably pretty darn happy with how their seasons went. And they all won their bowl games too.

    Re: "Second Biggest Winner", SEC Football 2012

    I picked the poodles because they were right there at the end of the SEC CG and had a chance to win.

    Florida made great strides but still have a long way to go.

    aTm played insane football with Johnny Football but they were not in the SEC CG like the leghumpers.

    Much as I dislike Georgia - I think they were right behind Bama at the end of last season. With Murray coming back next year it should be interesting.

    I picked Georgia. Florida was close and will continue to get better, but I thought Georgia was the second best team. Second Best!!! Roll Tide!!!!
