    Saw a screenshot in another thread (can't remember which one) of an ESPN list of worst records against top ten teams. We are the only SEC team that's winless against top ten opponents in the last ten years. I knew it was bad, but I had to go through past schedules to confirm that it was *that* bad. It is. Vanderbilt and Kentucky (and everyone else) has a more recent top ten win than our last, which was '06 in Athens (aka the perfect fourth quarter)

    We are still paying for 98. When does it end?

    That was just last 9 years (not sure why they used that number). We have lost 29 straight vs top 10 since the 06 Georgia game.

    I've gone through Vandy's schedule for the last 9 years, and unless I'm just blind, they don't have any wins either, which means those numbers can't be just nine years (Vandy's last top ten win that I can see is against South Carolina in October '07).

    Vacated wins? Not a win for us, but not a "loss" maybe?
