Never too early…

New Era Begins

Is this the road to #15 for my beloved Alabama Crimson Tide? At the very least, we may be looking at the 7th consecutive for the SEC (or 9th all time in the BCS era).  As much as it hurts my heart to say at the beginning of this new era for the SEC, welcome to the party Texas A&M and Missouri.  Don’t screw it up.  Make us proud.

2012 NFL Draft In Review

This was probably one of the more enjoyable drafts for me.  I tend towards the “draft who you need” side of things rather than drafting someone just because someone believes he deserves to be drafted at a certain position.  If you don’t need a QB, don’t draft one and don’t be pressured into drafting a guy just because someone tells you he should go #1 or even in the 1st round.  It was a remarkable showing for the SEC which led all conferences with 42 players selected and the only conference to have a player selected from every single school.  Alabama led all SEC schools (and all schools for that matter) with 8 players selected.  I did a bit of math on this.  253 players were selected over the 3 day draft.  The SEC accounted for 16.6% of those players.  Alabama accounted for 3.2% of those players, and further, Alabama accounted for 19% of the SEC players selected.  I’m not usually the first person to chant SEC! SEC! SEC!, but I gotta admit, that’s pretty impressive.
