Let The Southern Fried Madness Begin

How retarded are the good ole' boys for their SEC football? The front page of the Florida Times Union online has a big picture of Tim Tebow attending the three DAY SEC media conference. THAT'S the big news of the day.

The top story? The soap operaesque story of how former Flordia legend and current South Carolina head man Steve Spurrier didn't vote for Tim Tebow as a pre-season all conference quarterback. Mind you, Tebow is still the pre-seeason all conference quarterback, he's just not a UNANIMOUS decision.

Spurrier voted for Jevan Snead of Ole' Miss which is a solid pick. Snead very well could have the best season of any quarterback. But instead of explaining himself proudly, Spurrier skulked around his news conference telling everyone that his director of football operations actually filled out the ballot and Spurrier simply signed it without looking.

Well thank God that problem was solved.

I'll happily admit the SEC is the best college football conference year in and year out, but as we go from July into August, do not attempt to argue with a rabid SEC fan. If they claim that their conference is stronger than the NFL, just nod your head and escape. There is no logic based discussion with them. SEC football is the biggest source of pride for many sports fans in the south and any attempt to marginalize it will be met with swift retribution.

But as for now, sleep tight knowing we have solved the great "who didn't vote for Tim Tebow" problem.
