Bowl Games in South is Advantage for SEC

One thing I will point out is that the big ten always travels south to play SEC teams in bowl games. Playing in Florida and places like the Sugar Bowl(LSU) gives sec teams a HUGE advantage. I don't EVER remember SEC teams coming north other than the Indiana Kentucky series...

Editor's Note: Thanks, many Big Ten Fans have made this point. It is a valid point. However, my counter would be -- "sorry, that's life."

What I mean is that's where the bowl games are played, so them's the rules we play by. Of course the reason they are played in the South and Sunbelt is due to weather. And, weather affects lots of other things too, like the ability of kids to play outside more. On the other hand, this probably is a disadvantage when it comes to hockey or maybe even basketball (to a lesser degree).

So, yes, when it comes to outdoor sports, football included; weather is a big advantage for the SEC that manifests itself in many ways.

I guess God meant it that way.

On the field - the Big Ten wins
by: Anonymous

The Big Ten, despite these unbelievably unfair conditions, still has a winning record vs the SEC in bowl games over the last 5 years and since the BCS was formed in its current state (NC game was formed in 98). Put your mittens on and come visit Ann Arbor this January. Hint: UM will beat the SEC again.

Michigan can't cut it
by: Anonymous

Michigan? Michigan? Are you drunk? Can you say App State? Go back 12-15 years and, yes, Michigan had a solid team. But recently? Come on. Michigan can't even count on beating the little boys. There's no way they could play in the SEC.

Come to Big Ten Country
by: Anonymous

How about you SEC crybabies come play a came in the Horseshoe? The last time an SEC team played in the shoe was in 1988 (LSU) and they got beat. Big Ten teams always have to play SEC teams in SEC country, switch it around and see what happens!

Michigan loss to App State: Yes Michigan did lose to App State. As much as I hate to defend Michigan I will. App State was the defended DivII champ that year and they won the DivII title again the year they beat Michigan. On top of that, the year Michigan got beat by App State they came back and beat Florida!

Location of Bowls a Distinct Advantage for SEC
by: Lou D

The SEC has a distinct advantage playing all the bowl games in the southern part of the country, I would like to see some bowl games moved in Big 10 territory.
