Have to root for the SEC team.  Y'all who don't are just flat wrong, no matter what argument you might come up with.  You have to root for your conference.  BTW, I hate Bama, and was raised an OU fan (second to the Hogs - and still am) because half my family (including my mom) are Okies.  I'm still for Bama all the way.

I'd rather win a down SEC, than be mid-tier in an up SEC.

We should just move to the Sun Belt then, I suppose.

Why stop there?
Using the same logic of the ''gotta hate the big boys of the SEC'', why not just hope and pray that ALL SEC teams lose every game to non-SEC teams and to us.
That would make us look just fantastic as a potential CFP team and what athlete wouldn't want to attend any team from a hapless SEC conference?

You bama fans are delusional.

Here are the facts.

24 seasons in the league.
We've won or tied for the west 4 times.
The years we won bama won 6,7,8, and was banned another year.
That's the formula

What do you gumps need 50 years of evidence?

CFP? Why don't we just worry about winning the conference instead of getting to the playoffs since we've yet to win conference since joining. And you know why we haven't won the conference? More times than not, especially the last decade, is because of Bama, but keep cheering for them. Maybe you can get a t-shirt that says, "We lost to the National Champions. We are almost good."

And they'll continue to be good because they win, they get the top recruits, they win, they get the top recruits, they win, etc

Whether or not Bama wins the natty this year, they are still going to be getting top recruits. Sorry to break it to you.

Exactly.  And in almost every scenario I can imagine, the SEC doing poorly is a recipe for us being affected as well.

Saban will always get them. Alabama won't.

They struck out with several coaches and they will again. Perkins, Curry, Dubose, Francione, Price and Shula didn't exactly set the world on fire.

We need any reason to get Saban out of there. NFL, boredom, age, death penalty etc. I dont care.

I want OU to kick the crap out of Clemson and BAMA to kick the crap out of OU.  I want BAMA in a landslide.

If Kiffin can keep from wetting his pants and just the play calls in before delay of game, BAMA should have this.  I expect the BAMA D to showcase what they are, the very best.  The BAMA O may lose this thing for them.

That is not even remotely close to the point that either Razorback Mack or myself were making.

The point of his post and my backing for his post was that it is better for Arkansas when Bama is down. That has nothing to do with whether they win the NC this year or not. See his post again for the statistics.

This whole thread is about who wins the NC this year. If you are responding in it, I believe most would assume that is what you are talking about. I apologize for making that assumption.

Thank you for admitting that them winning or not winning the NC doesn't affect their team next year, though. I guess that rules out most of the reason to root against Bama as far as this year is concerned.

Yes I did.  Every stinking time.  The only time I ever rooted against them in any non-conference game was when they played OU.

College football is big buisness. Billion dollar tv deals. Paying coaches 5 million a year and giving them outrageous buyouts. I thought this was common knowledge. I say "my" because I've been emotionally invested in this since birth.

I think the longer they go without winning the NC the more likely Saban is to roll out. It's not that complicated. If you think any HC at bama can when like Saban study alabamas coaching history a little bit more.

You were not asking me, but I will answer. Hogs need the SEC to remain dominant nationally speaking for a lot of reasons, but mostly for recruiting. Right now we lose to Bama in recruiting hands down, but because the SEC is so dominant this is alluring to other recruits. They say "Hey, I want to play in the SEC" well that broadens even our prospects. We can beat out the OU's of the region for some recruits because the SEC is so highly regarded. Plus we get more money the more the SEC wins in the post season.

Sorry but that ain't hap'n and it never has.  If our recruiting improves it will be because of the coach not the conference we are in.  However we have slipped considerable if you figured a quotient for how much our recruiting needed to improve to stay at the same level in the SEC vs what we were in the SWC.  And it matters not whether or not we could have beaten SEC teams in those days because we still had the wins and the rankings.  That give you respect whether you completely deserve it or not.  Arkansas fans make fun of teams in other conferences but think about this.  With a recruiting base similar to ours OU and OSU are where they are and we ain't!

Bama all the way!  The only two SEC team I don't root for are Ole Miss and Auburn.

Not sure who I cheer for is going to change the outcome. So even if there is some intangible benefit to the SEC teams from Alabama winning, I am not going to be pulling for yet another Bama national championship. Boring.

Go Tigers! (And Michigan State)

Michigan State or Clemson.  In that order.

The fans of those schools haven't had national championships to celebrate recently.  Alabama and Oklahoma fans have.

I could care less about "conference pride," whether it hurts or helps our recruiting, or whether I'm "obligated" to do something as a Razorback fan.

So hopefully Clemson will give Alabama a good game. Would love to see the Tigers win, but hope it is a decent contest regardless of the outcome.

The TV ratings for the playoff games were drastically down vs. a year ago. The New Year's Eve experiment wasn't exactly a roaring success...
