It was a tough week for the SEC and its fans. Auburn, previously ranked No. 6 in the nation, needed a miraculous comeback in the final minute of regulation to push FCS-level Jacksonville State to overtime, where the Tigers prevailed. Arkansas, meanwhile, couldn’t get the job done against MAC team Toledo, falling 16-12 in a stunner.
Last week, SEC coaches and fans (Bret Bielema included) made headlines for criticizing the difficulty of their schedules as compared to that of Ohio State. This week, it’s a different story. Even SEC-lover Paul Finebaum thinks that fans need to “shut up” and worry about their own teams.

Somehow, we doubt that this will be the last we hear of the strength of schedule argument – on either side.
