Bryce Brown,a running back and the number one ranked recruit nationally by Rivals.com, recently committed to Lane's program as well choosing Tennessee over Miami and USC. Typically I don't put a lot of stock in the rivals ratings system, especially as of recent with some of the gophers recruits, but this was worth mentioning since he was the top ranked player this year. Lane's on the right track and pumping energy into the recruiting and supporting it with credible coaches and recruiters will help build the UT program. It helps greatly that UT has a rabid fan base, lots of TV exposure, and a program with a long tradition of winning at the national level.

Whatev. If you took the time to do some due diligence, you'll find that SEC teams vs. Big Televen teams head-to-head are pretty much right at .500 (actually, one game over...in the Big Televen's favor). But if you want to let a few spectacular OSU bowl game failures and the media's love affair with the SEC brainwash you, then by all means, carry on.

Is this a bunch of oversized highschool teams? I have seen the Goofers play. Pittyfull. The media loves the SEC because they have the #.What happened in the last five years of BCS is no coincidence. It will happen again this year. Go Gators

Remember when Tennessee wins the SEC that Maturi passed on Lane for Brewster...another example of "Medium Minnesota" missing out on a winner..(remember Bud Wilkinson, Bobby Knight, etc...

Just a guess... you thought Jeffrey Skilling and Ken Lay were futuristic geniuses back in 2000. At this point, if he doesn't win he'll look like an ass. And yes ... the SEC is a sad joke. They have a LOSING record against the Big 10, despite that the Big 10 throws them 4 home games at the end of every season. Amazing. Look what Vandy and Ole Miss did in that conference. Pathetic!
