Default Fan jealousy

With Alabama losing tonight, Facebook has exploded with Oklahoma fans coming out of the woodwork boasting about beating the SEC.

The jealousy of our conference is insane. Fans around the country want us to lose so badly. My best friend claims to be a Texas fan and even he was pulling for Oklahoma to beat Bama. Idk about you but I could never pull for clemson to beat anyone. Ever.

Where do ya'll stand on this? Do ya'll stand on the side of pulling for our conference to make our season look that much better? Or do ya'll have the mindset of screw everyone else as long as we win?

1 other thing. I know our fans chant SEC after we beat clemson every year and I thought I heard it after beating Wisconsin. I'm not really big on doing that because it really means nothing to chant that (besides the fact that it annoys the crap out of tater fans lol). I don't believe any other school does it so, why do we?

Go back and watch Florida beat OSU in '06, they did it then and every SEC school does it. The point is that those other teams just can't beat us because of level of competition, and that we are the only conference that understands that other teams success within our conference helps us with recruiting and to succeed in the post season.

As long as it helps you in some way, it is good. There is a fine line of how much it helps, but the SEC got more money and a better network deal than everyone else because they have several teams that win. It is not so bad if the west wins a lot. The eastern teams, harder to do since they are the ones you recruit against.

Every SEC team does this when they defeat an out of conference opponent. We were not original in doing this, we were just following everyone else in the conference.

ALSO...this goes back to our leaving the acc...back when clemson and maryland were supposed to defect with us...it is just a little reminder to them that while we may have paid for stepping out and being betrayed by them, it certainly has paid off in the long run for us. I was in the stadium chanting S-E-C proudly when we beat clemson this year, and the other two times in this current streak, I have a house in the upstate and I know how much this pisses them off so I will do it every chance I get.

I also had some fun pointing out to them that Duke was a champion for the acc this season...in football...that seemed to piss them off too.

Yes, I care about the perception of the conference. Mostly because it helps us BIG TIME with recruiting. Now, just because SEC is the best conference and the best teams are in the SEC it doesn't mean they are going to win all the time. Just most of the time.

This one loss doesn't change anything.
It also doesn't get me upset because we won our bowl game.
Even if auburn loses it doesn't change the perception of the conference because what has happened the last 7 years.

I don't need another team winning a title to feel better about myself.

It is a conference tradition. I have seen Bama fans doing it when we won. I have been in sports bars here in Orlando where gator fans were pulling for us against non conference foes and chanting SEC! SEC! SEC! It is part and parcel of the prestige and allure of being a member of the most highly regarded conference in the country.

There are good reasons why the taters and others keep trying to join. Besides the winning tradition there is the record amount of money membership brings in. There is also the recruiting advantage. Imagine being a young HS player and seeing our success and our public displays of conference loyalty versus everyone else in the joint laughing at a leather helmet clad clown running down a hill.

We need to keep our mystique and tradition going. The SEC is our brand. Embrace it.

Default Re: Fan jealousy

I do not believe in conference loyalty. I cheer for the team that I want to win, regardless of who is playing who... However, I am someone who does not like Alabama. To put it in perspective, I hate clemson, but not as much as I hate Alabama... So, if any other fan from any other conference wanna go off and brag about how they "took down the giant," Let them! But, look at what has been happening lately... The SEC can always take a loss.

other conferences are tired about hearing how dominant the SEC is, so when the flagship school loses, especially after hearing about how they are still the best in the country, then the vitriol is spewed

Default Re: Fan jealousy

I'm not a fan of any BCS team other than USC, but I do pull for SEC teams to beat other conference schools just because they are always so jealous. Stoops' rant before the game last night was a perfect example. If I hadn't know who he was I would have sworn his name was Dabo. But at least his team could back it up.

Even if Clemson wins i seriously doubt we finish top 5. Also ill never pull for Clemson some of you just don't understand the kind of impact winning a Bcs Bowl has. They get TONS of exposure, they get to use it against us for instate and out of state recruiting and it gives them a good bit of momentum for next year.

Conference pride pure and simple. If you like all the upgrades at the Brice and around the rest of the athletic department that all came from SEC revenue sharing. Not only is our team better than yours our conference is better than yours. I can promise you if we weren't in the SEC we would still be a perennial cellar dweller.
