Everyone knows that the SEC has been the most dominant conference in college football over the past decade. Understandably, however, hearing about it gets extremely frustrating for some of the top teams in other conferences that have more than held their own in the same period.
The Oregon Ducks are one of those teams, and this week they take on the Tennessee Volunteers. Today, when asked about the matchup, Ducks offensive lineman Jake Fisher got extremely sarcastic and talked about how “it’s our dream to play the SEC.”
They’re big, strong and fast, and they’re the SEC, and no one can beat the SEC, so, we’re going to have all the challenges.
Yeah they’re really big and scary, so, we’re all really, really intimidated by the SEC, so we’re just going to have to keep our minds right.
Yeah, it’s our dream to play the SEC, so, you know, we’re just going to come out and play a good game.
And here’s video:
The worst part for Oregon, of course, is that playing Tennessee is a no-win situation. The Ducks are expected to dominate the game, and if they don’t, you guessed it, it’s just more hype for the SEC. I do think that SEC fans probably respect Oregon a bit more than other programs though.
