"Phillip....you are ABSOLUTELY correct in what you said. The Future is just flat wrong (now, there's a surprise). The SEC ISN'T that good this year. This guy is so quick to jump on anything bammer related that he is blind. And yes, he is offensive.bammer played 7 teams that were .500 or less out of 12. Fact. The 5 with winning records included W. Ky and Mich OOC. A&M (loss), LSU(should have been a loss) and Miss. St.(front loaded schedule of stiffs) were the 3 SEC teams with winning records. Arguably, the East is the better overall division.
Oh, they didn't play UGa, UF or USCe ...3 of the 5 teams projected to be in the final Top 10. Or even Vandy either. There was a reason Dye complained about playing Amen Corner every year."
Seriously? The SEC is down? We're about to go 7-2 in bowls, and one of those losses is from a team who's coach played at Alabama.

I really don't follow Philips comments in threads very often, but that thread is full of Philip "win" (minus him taking his shirt off).
He has stated numerous times this year in various blogs. That he feels the SEC is always down when AU & UT aren't winning. LMAO

Go up vote him some more for his reponse. lol.
"I read what you wrote. It's pretty pathetic."
comparing UT and AU as "national powers" is laughable.
I agree but that is what he honestly thinks apparently.
Looks like he banned the guy for telling the truth.
There is a hidden statistic in what I posted, and it is that the two teams out of the six that only played 2 ranked SEC teams (UGA and UA) played in the conference title. So, in a way, he does make a valid point.
But, this ignores three things:
One, even though they all had more chances than UA and UGA, the other teams still only managed to win one ranked SEC game (the notable exception is Florida, who has clearly the best record, but fails both the eyeball test and the "win when it counts" test. They also caught teams at the best times.)
Two, when starting by talking about how Alabama "might or might not be the best team," it is moronic to throw out the SEC championship. A game between ranked teams, with no layover, is a clear indicator of those teams' quality.
Three, it was only a "down year" because of the lower ranked teams. The six ranked teams lost ONLY to each other in the regular season, major non-conference tilts included, with the lone post-season loss being LSU's boneheaded game. If TAM, UF, and UA all win, then the top of the conference should probably be viewed as being dominant, and the losses just due to parity.
Wow! Seriously? As I poster earlier, what a bitch.
I read the whole thing. That's completely indefensible. He even deleted the post bitchslapping him for his annual "exceeding expectations" column.
I guess I missed that post. And what is the exceeding expectations column all about?
Phillip writes a column every spring, including last spring after the blowouts, pumping up auburn's coaching staff for exceeding expectations ("young," "talented but inexperienced," etc.). TF pointed out that PM was busy tearing down Mullen for winning 8 games, probably because he couldn't spin out an "exceeding expectations" column for auburn 2012.
Wow. Hilarious. I gotta wonder if that guy's a troll.
I can't believe I read that whole thread. Can't believe Marshall is writer on one of these sites.
If you go look at his work, seems like he just likes to screw with people's heads by stating the obvious.
Wow... It looks like "the future" guy's posts were all deleted.... banned? Do you have any idea how mad I would be as a paying member if I got canned for disagreeing with a writer? Heck, I get mad when a post of mine gets moved to the water cooler when Shane's workout threads get to stay up. Butt hurt?? Absolutely.
Wow. That was pretty tame stuff. I wonder what his employers think about that kind of queer behavior.
Every SEC team that has a shitty year starts whining about how the entire conference is down and blah blah blah blah.
Phillip Marshall is as delusional as any homeboard crazy. It's completely irresponsible for people to treat him like a journalist. The guy is nuts.

6 teams in the top 10 BCS and Phillip thinks its a down year for the SEC. Hmmm, what would be an up year?
PM is a spin doctor and articles like this show how unprofessional he really is! DM has done a great job at MSU and should be commended for it. As for the jab at ALABAMA, all I can say is he's an idiot! His attempt to spin this season is laughable. We have the very best mods. there is. They don't try to sugarcoat anything and always are straight shooters. I will say Coach Saban has made that part of their jobs easier because we are on top of the college football world and the views are amazing!!!
Honestly I think Marshall is just that big a homer. He isn't capable of being rational about auburn. He'll be buried with a case of Charmin.
