|How ridiculous is that?|
Southern California head coach Pete Carroll said all the right things after his No. 1 Trojan team lost at Oregon State Thursday — until...
Carroll credited the Beavers for outplaying his team in every phase.
Then he said, "The Pac 10 is ridiculously hard."
Hey Pete, try playing LSU, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Arkansas, Tennessee and Auburn in one year. And that's just your conference games. And don't go to sleep on Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Vanderbilt or South Carolina.
Let's see, to win the Pac 10 you have to beat Oregon State, Oregon, Arizona State, Washington State. Arizona, Washington, California, Stanford and UCLA.
Seven of the 10 teams in the Pac-10 had no more than five wins in conference play. Half of them finished with losing records.
There were only two of 12 SEC teams with losing records last year, including look at me now Vanderbilt.
Still need a little proof in your pudding.
Check the number of SEC players in the NFL.
The Southeastern Conference placed 259 of its former players on the 2008 National Football League opening weekend active rosters, leading all NCAA conferences.
The SEC had five of the top 12 schools on NFL opening day rosters. Georgia was the SEC's leading squad and third overall with 36 of its former players listed on NFL rosters, followed by LSU with 35, Tennessee at 34, Florida with 30 and Auburn at 27.
Miami (Fla.) led all schools with 44 former players on NFL rosters, followed by Florida State with 37.
Following the SEC, the ACC had 254 of its players on active rosters, followed by the Big Ten with 227, Pac-10 with 178, Big 12 with 170 and the Big East with 87.
The SEC has led the nation in the number of players on opening weekend rosters since 2001.
The 12 SEC schools were in the top 64 among all colleges. Alabama was sixth in the SEC with 18, followed by Arkansas and Mississippi State with 16 each, South Carolina with 15, Ole Miss at 14, Vanderbilt with 10 and Kentucky with eight.
In a breakdown by positions of all college with the most players on 2008 NFL rosters, LSU had the most centers (3) and wide receivers (6), Ole Miss had the most offensive guards (4), Georgia the most tight ends (4), defensive ends (9) and placekickers (2) and Tennessee with most defensive tackles (5).
Hey Pete, you want to know what hard is. Trying playing at the Swamp, between the hedges, close to rocky top, in Death Valley or where they call pigs.
Then we'll talk.
Ridiculously hard? How ridiculous.
