Normally I try not make a habit of calling people out for verbal slips, but the circumstances of the video make it worth a share.  NFL wideout Javon Walker was asked recently for his BCS championship predictions for the upcoming season.  Walker decides to use the face time to promote Florida State, where he played from 2000-2001.  The Seminoles are considered to be a favorite in the ACC and a possible title contender, should they knock off Oklahoma in the regular season.  But it is in his elaboration where Walker makes his fatal flaw.  Right before the end of the video, he gives the reasoning that FSU can win the BCS Championship because they compete in the SEC.  

Florida State has been in the ACC since 1992.  

I'll leave the digs on the Walker for the commenters, have away at him folks.

I believe he meant, competed WITH the SEC...actually, FSU did "win" the SEC East last year by virtue of beating both of the SEC teams they played inlast year, both from the SEC East...SC, the East Champs and UF, the East runner-up!!

I don't know Mr. Patterson, that didn't sound like much of a "slip" to me; I think he truly believed that FSU competed in the SEC.  At least he got the general geographic area correct, though.
