If Bama and Cow U. are the only undefeated teams in the conference the
Iron Bowl should be for the SEC Championship.
 
If the Iron Bowl winner clobbers the East winner, the Iron Bowl game
WAS the championship game. I don't let technicalities confuse issues.
 
All you asked was "How can". :)

To get in the Final Four a team from the Can't Count Conference has to
beat Ohio State. The season only matters to fans of other schools.

Lol. Coming from the conference universally achnowledged as being on top (preseason) I'm pretty sure if any two loss team is coming in its from the big ten.
 
Four teams in the top ten vs two from most other conferences, except the sec... which has one? Weak.

Earth is in an ice age, the Quaternary ice age.
Earth is currently in an inter-glacial period.
Inevitably Manhattan island will once again be

I thought jr high vs. middle school just had to with the grades involved. When I was in elementary, it was k-6, then jr high was 7-9 and HS was 10-12. But then they shut down one (out of two) jr. high schools in our school district and we had k-6 in elementary, middle school 7-8 and high school 9-12. I think that's how it still is in my home town. I know 6th is typically middle school and not elementary school.

Hmmm....
 
According to this site:
 
https://www.education.com/reference/article/differences-between-junior-high-middle/
 
these are the differences:
 
Junior High
Subject-centered
Emphasis is on cognitive development
Organizes teachers in subject-based departments
Traditional instruction dominates
Six to eight class periods per day
Provides academic classes
Offers study hall and/or homeroom
Classrooms arranged randomly or by subject or grade level
 
Middle School
Student-oriented
Emphasis is on both cognitive and affective development
Organizes teachers and students in interdisciplinary teams
Experiential approaches to instruction
Allows for block and flexible scheduling
Provides exploratory, academic, and nonacademic classes
Offers advisor/advisee, teacher/student opportunities
Team classrooms in close proximity
 
Where I went was called a middle school but seems more like a junior high based on the above.

I would certainly agree with authoritarian and dominant but prejuduce
is universally common.
 
I'm nor sure what the last two mean.

You were supposed to provide all the statistics.
Games played in, game started, results of each ...
Colin "2-14" Kaepernick was the starter for a team.
His team went 2-14. No excuses, he was the starter.

Why was I supposed to do that? And Blaine Gabbert was the initial starter for the 49es last year. They replaced him with Kaepernick when they got desperate.

It's not surprising that a mental midget who confuses social problems
and pro football is unemployed.
 
Couple that with being an incompetent QB and the position he plays
best is Left Out.

More accurately it is because of what I posted months ago - once
entrenched even a law concocted and enacted by anti-American
socialists is difficult to repeal. Too many people are unable to
compete without a handicap.
 
Don't enforce the requirement for people to have insurance. Stop
pushing the swing and "let the cat die". I would suggest whatever it
takes to accomplish that.

What is it called with a Semitic speaking inbred, which are all Arabs, is
anti-Semitic? It's called a terrorist, which all Arabs are only one
trigger or television show away from being.
 
Is that what you meant? If so, I agree that all Arabs are Semitic Anti-
