You have to admit they get the hype for a reason. It has 3 coaches that have won national championships and up until 2 years ago it had 4. LSU, Auburn, Florida, and Alabama have all recently won a championship. If the cards fall right Auburn might be in the game too. Georgia and South Carolina are always in the discussion to win the SEC and almost by default get into the NCG. Last year Georgia and South Carolina played the Big10(Nebraska and Michigan) and came out with a W.
I mean what else do you have to do to be considered the strongest conference?
I think it just steps on people toes because they feel like their program is being tossed aside.
That's not what it means at all.
It's hard to deny that top to bottom and resume considered that the SEC has RECENTLY been the strongest conference. That doesn't mean FSU, Oregon, Clemson, Stanford, OSU, Michigan, Okla, Texas, or USC could not meet the SEC on neutral ground and give them the business. Last year Florida and LSU we're beaten by the ACC. Clemson and Louisville gave them the business although Florida beat FSU at the end of that season.
I think people don't like the fact that it's almost been accepted that the strongest team in nation will be in the SEC, and up until this year that has been the case.
I'm glad that the playoffs start next year. Hopefully people will stop complaining when their conference is represented postseason, Honestly it's a better method too. You never know who's going to play their best football when it really counts, and getting the best football is the point. Plus I think the playoffs will increase the chances of the SEC getting in.
lol did you even read the article bro? SEC isn't the best conference. It's a good conference, on par with the Pac-12 and Big 12 in most years, that is overrated bc they are financially in bed with ESPN and CBS.
FYI, I have never said the Big 10 is better than the SEC.
