I always have to laugh when people bring up all time stats in attempt to prove some lame point. They have zero bearing on this year. The Niners are 11-13 all time against Seattle. Everyone knows the SEC has been the best conference over the last decade. I was referring to this year only. Let's take a look at the final top 25 and see. I do wonder how many stats you cherry picked through before you found one you thought supported your attempt at an argument.
By basing it on the # of teams in the final top 25, you are "cherry picking" as well, lol.
SEC will finish with 4 teams in the top 10 (LSU, 'Bama, South Carolina and Arkansas if they win).
Big 12 has 4 teams in top 25 (Oklahoma St, Oklahoma, Kansas State, Baylor).
Georgia and Mizzou will be tough to tell if they end up in top 25, both will be on the bubble.
Big 10 currently has 5 top 25 teams, but Penn State will fall out and Nebraska might fall out.
By your top 25 measure, the PAC-12 is equal with Conference USA.
My guess is the two new teams in the top 25 will be BYU and the winner of Arkansas State and North Illinois. Auburn could bounce into the top 25 as well, only losses were to ranked teams, with a win over South Carolina. Mizzou is the other that has a chance but they have a bad loss (ASU) and not one win against a team that will finish ranked.
