HeismanPundit, on top of things as always.

What was talked about all offseason HERE And HP is now in SI and other sources.  I apologize for not discussing more Ohio State, Tennessee, Georgia, etc. quasi-elite teams.  I mean it.

It's never that simple. HP will simply see things the way he sees them, regardless of the circumstances. As for what he's on top of? A mound of horseshit is what we say.

What an outrage! How dare I see things my way until proven otherwise? Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror and asked yourself that very question? Why not try to be objective for once?

HP-- you must not have been a liberal arts major if you believe objectivity can be achieved. All we can do is admit our bias so we can be intellectually honest with others. Try as we may, our emotions and experience will always be the prism through which we view life. That is why you love the Pac 10 so... and always will. Try as we can to watch Pac 10 games, we'll never see the volume of them that you do and the converse is true as well. This will always color our perceptions. Just be up front about it.

Has it ever occurred to you that not everyone lives in the same world as you? Unlike you, I have actually lived in the South and the West, so I have actually seen both ends of the spectrum. My praise of the Pac-10 has always had to do with style of play, the same thing that leads me to denigrate the SEC. At the same time, I praise Florida and Louisville. So, where's the regional bias? I have a bias, but it's not based on geography. It's based on football philosophy. I hold that a certain football philosophy is supreme right now and it just happens to be that the Pac-10 and SEC are at the crux of the arguments. Believe it or not, some of us aren't slapdick fans just holding a beer and cheering for our teams. Some of us actually watch the games....all of them.

watching all the football does not prevent you from being a blowhard who's dumber than a post, unfortunately. apparently it encourages it.

Actually, we've never left the confines of our video-game cord and television saturated room, HP. Please tell us how it all works! Please! The world is begging you for your wisdom!

You know HP that only you can see things through your eyes?

I was born in Cali, the child of Bruins. I strapped on my first helmet in Big Ten country (the mean streets of Bloomfield Hills). Went to school in the Northeast (Boston) and root for an ACC team. That is my bias. And I will say this -- nothing compares to SEC football.

Gawd. Do you guys listen to the junk you spout? Brian from MGO, why do you even bother inserting yourself into these situations? You are just not equipped to handling this stuff, so go back to writing about Hockey and Lloyd Carr's man boobs. That's what the world needs you for. As for you Orson, once again, you just can't resist, can you? I mean, make up your mind dude. Either play ball or don't play ball. Otherwise, go back to being the court jester. And, oh, nothing compares to SEC football. That's a hell of an argument. I'm sure Orson and Brian and Dawgy1 are real happy now that they got that juicy little nugget to latch on to.

We are what we are, which is definitely unique. Unlike certain gas-huffing turtleneck wearers...

I'm actually from the Northeast, but I will admit my views are skewed by watching a disproportionate amount of SEC football compared with other conferences. That is because there are only 15 or so hours of Saturday football watching available. In that time, I watch a fair amount of Big East, Big Ten, Pac 10, Big 12 and even an occassional mid-major. I do not doubt you watch at least as much football as I, but it is not possible to watch much more unless you Tivo only to watch all week (I don't know if that would make me jealous or feel sorry for you...). It is impossible to watch all of the games and it is sweeping generalizations and overstatements that are the problem with your sometimes great observations. I understand your argument about football philosophy (although deeming some offenses sophisticated and others not, I think is a misnomer) and quite agree generally with a preference for wide open and innovative offenses over the Ohio State/ Tennessee model of playing it close to the vest (or sweater vest), but I don't see the revolution you speak of. You need three phases of the game to win and USC wins because they have all three, not because of a so-called sophisticated offense alone. Also, I don't think throwing to fullbacks and tightends makes an offense more sophisticated than one that finds other ways to get the ball down field (like the Spurrier era Gators, Richt Coordinated Noles, and mid 90's Bruins for example). But that is all really besides the point. My point is that your bias is beyond your philosophical "Big Six" sophistaction preference, and is clearly a Pac 10 bias with a respect for a few non-Pac 10 teams. That is fine. Everyone is biased. Just admit it.
