    Went with South Carolina. Although they did have three straight 11 win seasons from 2011-2013....so maybe the comparison isn't quite right.

    Agree, those 11 win seasons are a difference. Somewhat peripheral connections/similarities are that President Gabel's previous stop was in Columbia, and former Gamecock AD Mike McGee was an assistant to Warmath in earlier days.

They're head and shoulders above us as a program.
    Hasn't Mizzou won the SEC east a couple times since they joined? I don't see the similarity.

Those teams have had some success but have generally been mediocre.
    If you look at KY's record the last ten years, I think it's a lot closer to the Gophers' record than you might want to believe...

    But relative to the rest of the SEC, they have generally been one of the bottom two teams with Vanderbilt. The gophers typically have not been one of the bottom two teams over the last 10 years, thats more Indiana and Rutgers. So I would compare those programs to Vandy and Kentucky.

    Tulane. They were smart in leaving the SEC to focus on academics versus football -- other than maybe Vanderbilt, the SEC is really low on academics.

    Why are A&M and Missouri together? I would have chose Missouri but can't because we are no A&M.

    I put them together because they were recent adds. (Penn St, Nebraska, Rutgers, Maryland)
