The Wild (Wide Open) West

The Wild (Wide Open) West

Outside the confines of Columbus, Ohio, away from all 318 hard core Pac-10 fans, and disregarding what’s left of Bob Stoops’ mind, the general consensus is that the SEC West is the most complete, talented and powerful top-to-bottom division of any conference in all of college football. The evidence is […]
