Conspiracy theories are what they are - but I'm a firm believer that there are no coincidences either. There is a lot of $ on CFB (and growing daily). Where there is a great deal of money (or power), the opportunity for corruption is nearly on par. I have seen referees not call penalties which benefit UT and have called penalties which have hampered UT this season. In fact, it's nearly the worst I've seen in 40 years. Even the announcers are saying, "Well...yeah...he held the UT receiver...and even turned him...". That is nearly a direct quote from Sat night talking about a UGA DB. The SEC office wants Alabama to play UGA every year in the SECCG. It's that simple. Sure strange things can happen and a LSU gets in - but year in and year out - you know at season's beginning who it is going to be. The SEC office should have been moved out of Alabama decades ago. It wasn't for a reason. Money is the only thing that these types understand....and it isn't going down b/c too many people look to sports as an temporary escape hatch from their lives. Endure the "blue-blood programs" or abandon the sport.
