This one time at Writer's Camp…
I’m still sick, but I did feel good enough this evening to do some math. And the math says that, in spite of not liking the SEC (the math likes the SEC; I don’t), the SEC had the most bowl wins this year. Otherwise, the whole “Big Six” thing is a bit strange this year. Oklahoma made a great talking point after being dissed by the Bowl Committee, and then proceeded to get blown out by Texas A&M.
