Auburn AD Jay Jacobs - Impartial Juror

Jay Jacobs, Prophet

The SEC's entitlement was on full display shortly after Auburn's incredible defeat of Alabama on the strength of 296 yards rushing and a 109 yard field goal return for a touchdown as time expired. 

Not content with just letting the talking heads tout the pro-SEC narrative, Auburn AD Jay Jacobs was quickly consumed by diarrhea of the mouth, setting the world straight on what it should think:

It wasn't long after that Jacobs took it a step further offering:

"It would be a disservice to the nation if we got left out."

I guess on some level I can appreciate the stumping but maybe Auburn should first focus on winning the SEC championship first since it's too late to focus on not losing to LSU.

After rooting for Auburn yesterday, and then hearing from Mr. Jacobs, I am now a huge Missouri fan.

Maybe he can still schtick for that one loss SEC team after next Saturday.....just not his.

Sorry SEC, but it's over. You had an excellent run of title games, some of which you even earned. But it is over. If OSU and FSU win their last two games the SEC will be on the outside looking in. Sorry.

To err is human. Really sucking requires having yellow stripes on your helmet.

After watching the game yesterday, I had settled and was happy that we weren't going to the NCG with that defense.
Now after hearing nothing but how a 1-loss SEC team should jump us from no fewer than 10 people on eSECpn it makes me sick to my stomach and pissed off to no end. Our defense is a HUGE problem, but damnit, I want nothing more than to see us go and win by whatever means necessary just to stick it to those biased pricks. /rant.
Have a wonderful Sunday everyone!

Wait... A Big 12 team is playing in the Sec championship game? S-E-C! S-E-C! S-E...c?

Nice. Sanctimonious much?

Big Missouri and Duke fan this week.  Wishful thinking I know but after yesterday  anything is possible. 

Nothing like dancing on the field in 02...

Duke wins and SEC is back in the title game. I'm all for Team Chaos but not sure if I want an SEC back in the game. Although if OSU were to win next week and play Missouri, that might be cool.
Or I'm not sure if I would care who Ohio State would play.

I'm a hurtin' buckaroo.

If FSU loses to Duke, the winner of Auburn v Missouri gets in.

If the team does not get an SEC team all off season the rhetoric will be they didnt play the SEC so they didnt really win it.  I know it sounds ludicrous, but thats the way I see the media playing it out.  I'd love to take it to Missouri so they cant say anything and blame themselves.

Some people say Buckeye fans have entitlement issues.
"It would be a disservice to the nation if we got left out."
Tell me about it.

My new dream scenario is Duke upsetting FSU. (And Auburn losing to Missou obviously.)

I love the arrogance of the SEC... "disservice to the nation."

I think when V Jay Jay says "Nation" he really means the old confederacy. For him that's the real Murica!

In the latest installment of who is next to jump the Buckeyes, we now have the Auburn Tigers.   Following the trends already established this year, I guess we should bet the farm on Mizzou.  
Truth be told, we need to stop worrying about what ESPN and others are saying and focus on beating Sparty.  We will need our defense to show up for this one because I don't think we will be able to simply run over that defense. Thank God the game is in doors so Braxton can take the glove of his throwing hand.  He must do a better job of passing especially the short and medium routes or MSU will load the box.

Go Bucks!

I'm sorry but the SEC is not as good as it was before. That argument may have worked a year or two ago but after watching all season, you cannot with a straight face say or bias say that the SEC is so much better than everyone else. The biggest difference, in my opinion, is the defenses. Before you had 3 or 4 teams with defenses that were scary, now there are none. The best 2 defenses in the country are FSu and Michigan State. That is the difference.

This is why CBS Sports has become my go-to site for sports reporting:

A "disservice to the nation" is pretty clearly an overstatement -- there's a Maine lobsterman out there who will, in fact, not be affected one bit if Auburn wins the SEC and heads to the Sugar Bowl -- though Jacobs might be forgiven for being a bit emotional in the wake of a win like Saturday's, not to mention the still-fresh wounds of 2004.

At least somebody out there is fair and balanced!  I can only imagine how ESPiN would've reported this article.  Let's never football does not revolve around the SEC alone...even if ESPiN says differently!

Disservice to the nation? WTF?

The level of balls it takes to use "cause America" to justify your team playing for the title is incredible though. I wish we had thought of it first.

The fact he said it would be un-american to let Auburn be left out is really wild lol like come on what is this ... OHIO AGAINST THE WORLD

You mean the nation that didn't give a sh*t about the all-SEC BCS championship game? Lowest rating in the 14 year history of the BCS.
A team that needed a kick return to beat a crappy Washington St team at home, the immaculate deflection to beat a 4 loss GA team at home, and got beat by a 3 loss LSU team on the road by 2 TDs.

And to think that the entirety of Buckeye nation would ever root for those jaggoffs.  #neveragain

It's funy how they think they're entitled to it because they play in the U of SEC.
It would be a disservice to this country to put a 1 loss team (that lost to a 3 loss team) in over undefeateds.

And then I told her...i'm no weatherman, but tonight's forecast is calling for several inches!
