As boring as we fans find the offseason, imagine what hell it wreaks on a coach. Nine months of praying all your kids are going to class (they aren't), that 6'5" quarterback who runs a 4.6 will commit (he won't), and that the offensive line can get its act together (it can't).
Luckily, Auburn's frontman Tommy Tuberville has figured out a way to inject some life into the offseason: brutal potshots at rival conferences!
In advocating a playoff, Tuberville pointed to Ohio State losing by a wide margin in consecutive national championship games by SEC teams.
"Ohio State would have finished fifth in our league and they're ranked No. 1 in the preseason poll," Tuberville said.
Outrageous! Scandalous! Intellectually dishonest! We move that all SEC programs should reject and denounce Mr. Tuberville's remarks, as there's no way there's only four SEC teams better than the Buckeyes.
Fifth in the SEC. You must be crazy, Tuberville.
