It was, in every sense of the word, a beatdown. It was such a blowout...

The Rust Belt Rundown: SEC Bias Is Alive And Well

So let me get this straight. Saturday morning, ESPN’s Chris Fowler supposedly laid the smack down on any talk that ESPN and the national media had an agenda when it came to the SEC. Everyone lauded him for speaking up. It was essentially a giant ******* you” to SEC haters. It was supposed to put us in our place. Later that afternoon, the 16th ranked Nebraska Cornhuskers beat...
