Does the SEC Suck now?

The conference’s most exciting game this year might have been an October 1 clash between Tennessee and Georgia. Those two teams both began the season ranked; fittingly, they ended it outside the AP poll, with perfectly mediocre 4–4 records in SEC play.
Alabama didn’t lose a game, of course, as Nick Saban’s squad avoided the seemingly contagious .500 conference mark. But a look at the Tide’s 13 leaguemates reveals a troubling fact: Put in SEC-friendly terms, Bama ain’t played nobody.

That’s probably not going to be a problem for Alabama as it seeks a repeat national title, because this team might be the best ever, so normal concepts of battle-testedness might not apply. But if we’re looking for reasons the Crimson Tide might be vulnerable in the playoff — and we are, because the alternative is spending the next month planning a coronation — the absence of another top-tier team on their schedule thus far is a place to start.

Remember when the SEC Championship was essentially the National Title game. Last week Florida got trounced in a formality of a game. A 3-loss Florida that needed a goal-line stand to beat LSU.

I remember banging on the Little 12 back in the Tebow days of the late aughts. But you could argue 4 Big 10 teams (tOSU, Michigan, Penis State and Wisconsin) are better than any of the non-Bama SEC team.

Yeah, I know, :lol Canadian talking College Fooseball.

Listen to the likes of guys like Cowherd at the time, he said that kids didn't want to go to Northern Schools anymore.

Of course Herd's opinions are usually awful.

It always goes in cycles.

15 years ago, Miami (Fla) was like Bama is today; great all time team, crap conference.  Meanwhile, the Big 12 at the time was viewed as the deepest conference, with Oklahoma & Texas always preseason top 5 with their game being seen as a BCS qualifier.  Plus you had Nebraska, Texas Tech, A&M, and Kansas State always causing trouble during the same time period.

The SEC does suck. The best conference top to bottom is the Pac-12 (UW, WSU, USC, Colorado, Utah,  Stanford) no other Power 5 conference has six good teams. The SEC has been ovrerrated for years.
