Auburn QB Jarrett Stidham Pounds His SEC Chest While Giving Former Ohio State QB Joe Burrow Advice

Here we go again.

In case you thought the narrative of the SEC being far superior to other leagues was knocked back a few rungs in recent years, you are sadly mistaken.

To chest pound that point home, Auburn QB Jarrett Stidham freely gave out his uneducated advice to incoming graduate transfer Joe Burrow. As you are fully aware by now, Burrow made the decision to leave Ohio State as a graduate transfer for the chance to start at LSU.

When asked about what advice the Auburn QB would give Burrow, Stidham went into all-out SEC brainwash mode. He told AL.com’s Matt Zenitz, “I don’t know how it was up north, but people down south love their football. That’s No. 1. Stidham went further, “No. 2, the SEC, it’s a lot of fun. It’s a grind. Every single week, you’ve got to be on your game. There’s no cupcake teams in our league. You’re going to get somebody’s best every single week, so you’ve got to be physically and mentally prepared for those types of games and situations.”

Stidham has a lot of experience in transferring and landing in the SEC, so one would think he’s qualified on these sort of things. He had stints at Baylor and then McLennan Community College in Waco, Texas before transferring to Auburn. We’ll leave that one alone.

We’ll forgive Stidham for his uneducated remarks, but we’ll take the time to remind the 6-3, 214 pounder that Burrow likely knows pressure and expectations well. There aren’t any places with more eyes and media on it than Columbus, Ohio (even if it is in the North).

The Horseshoe plays to over 105,000 in capacity, and every fan is an armchair quarterback. One loss is the equivalent to a virtual Scarlet and Gray stock market collapse.

Oh, and about those cupcakes. Ohio State schedules the likes of Oklahoma, Texas, USC, TCU, Notre Dame in the non-conference as a home-and-home rather than agreeing mostly to neutral site games against the big boys. Auburn has also recently scheduled FCS schools Mercer and Alabama State. You won’t find an FCS “cupcake” school anywhere on the Buckeyes’ schedule.

Also, let’s not forget that the Big Ten East is now the best division in college football, not the SEC West — and definitely not the SEC East.

Simply put; Ohio State is a better program now and historically than Auburn is, has a much better following, and more pressure associated with it than the second best program in Alabama.

Now pound your chest a little harder Stidham, but get educated first.
