    That's not the teams fault.

    I went with Kentucky. Long losing streak to FL recently overcome.
    A national title long ago.

    By the way, Michigan might be the next Tennessee, although some could argue Tennessee=Nebraska

    I voted Arkansas but I think you can make a case for South Carolina or one of the Mississippi schools. Definitely not the Vanderbilt or Kentucky level, that would be Rutgers or Indiana but we are more in the upper bottom half over recent years. Those teams have had some success but have generally been mediocre.

    So your question is the actual team on the field or the program?

    If it's the team on the field, Vanderbilt.

    If it's the program, probably Kentucky.

    Why would you put A&M and Mizzou on the same line? I could make an argument that we're Mizzou-like (I think they're the SEC team most like us), but A&M has had a Heisman winner in the last decade, their current coach won a national championship in 2013 (albeit with Florida State), they play in a stadium that's more than double the capacity of TCF Bank and regularly sell it out, and they're in the fertile recruiting territory of Texas. They're head and shoulders above us as a program.

    I put them on the same line from a newness factor. Recent addition to the conference. I wish I had adequate spots for all.
    Figured MO and A&M would be compared with the Penn St / Rutgers / Maryland / Nebraska group more because of lack of history with the conference.

    Tennessee - a formerly great program trying to find success. Stadiums a little different, but they're both by rivers.
    Iím a light eater. As soon as itís light, I start to eat. And I'm on a seefood diet. If I can see food, I'll eat it.

    Ole Miss.
    Pretty good in the 60s

    Bad since with a couple of resurgent seasons that just never won the conference.

    Recent success against Bama

    Chose Tennessee for historical connection of Warmath to General Neyland.
    Suppose I could have chosen Mississippi State as well. But reasons were historical ties, I guess.

    South Carolina, easy.
    `1) We struggle to win and as soon as we see light at the end of the tunnel, it is a high speed train. 2) we have shared coaches: Holtz, Tom Gadd, Ray Jones (basketball). 3) neither can produce an NFL QB. Give me time I'll report a few more.
