Seriously, what the fuck is this "SEC! SEC! SEC!" bullshit, as if Kentucky, Vanderbilt, Mississippi State or Arkansas have anything to do with the dominance of Alabama, Florida and LSU in the last decade? That'd be like fans of the Steelers, Browns and Bengals chanting "AFC North! AFC North! AFC North!" after the Ravens won the Super Bowl.

Yeah, the SEC has been the best conference in college football for a while now, but they're not orders of magnitude better than any other conference. The fact that the SEC isn't undefeated in bowl games since 2006 illustrates this. And before anybody says, "Yeah, the second-place team in [other conference] is good enough to beat the third-best team in the SEC," please make sure to repeat that exact statement to yourself the next time you want to boast that, "The best team in [other conference] would only be good enough to finish seventh in the SEC!" It doesn't add up.

Arkansas went to the Sugar Bowl two years ago. Kentucky went to a bowl game every season from 2006 to 2010. It's not like these programs are doormats... The SEC is the strongest overall conference in America. I am not saying they are 10x better than the next best conference. They've just been the most successful with all the National Championships, bowl wins, and recruiting. The statistics reinforce all that.

I'm not sure exactly how team #6 from Conference A plays #2 from Conference B. Meaning, I don't know what the system is to decide that. Personally I really don't care. I just want to see exciting match ups during bowl season.

SEC stays on top with the bias voting. Had there been a playoff in place the SEC wouldn't have won all of those championships. You can try to prove me wrong but you will ultimately fail. For example two highly touted and ranked teams play each other and one loses..well since they were both such "tough/elite" college programs the one who loses doesn't fall but a few spots. The process keeps on going throughout the season without fail.

Alabama vs. LSU, you remember that? Alabama never deserved a second play through with LSU.
How about the bias bowl locations?

Oklahoma vs LSU 2003, Louisiana
Oklahoma vs Florida 2008, Florida

I'm sure those aren't the only two games that weren't in neutral locations.
(OU fan, shutup)

Anyway Florida is going to smash Auburn. js

Hey, I agree with most of the Buckeye criticism. I still love them though and always will.

The REAL out of conference contenders have dodged our contracts for years now, and we've been stuck with low top 25 talent as our "big games" because of it. I'd like to see us go up against top 10 talent a few games a year for a spell and watch them improve from there, but something tells me schools will continue to avoid the contracts that'll allow that. We played some big teams under Tressel and one some championships, too. We haven't had a schedule with that talent on it in a while and i'm hoping that changes.

Michigan State flat out EARNED that game last night, and i'm not making excuses. We made it into a game, but they were the better team. We have the pieces to be a great football team, but we'll never win a championship under Meyer if our schedule every year continues to be soft. We've always had close conference games, even in our championship seasons, but our out of conference schedule was tough in those seasons, too, and that helped prepare us for the big game.

I did not agree with the LSU/Bama rematch from a couple of years ago. Was not fair that LSU goes to Tuscaloosa and beats the Tide and their reward is an extra game in the conference championship and rematch against the team you beat once already. Was not in favor of the Mich/OSU rematch idea either. Now has the SEC had a string of success in the championship games, yes no question. Are they currently 7-2 this bowl season and once again in the championship game, yes again. Are they the toughest college football conference in the country, IMO and most of the sporting experts yes they are. I am not saying they are vastly superior but the proof is how they have stacked up against any and all other competition over the last ten years. I am a fan of the MSU Bulldogs and we are not a top 20 team, but for a team that finished in the bottom half of the conference we field a very good defense and have a soph QB that will make a name for him self next year. We lost 6 games this year and all 6 games were to top 20 teams. Auburn beat us at Auburn with less than a minute to go. Do I think a bottom SEC team could beat a top tier Big 12 or Big 10 team, not likely. But is SEC plays any other conference from top to bottom they would come out ahead, not a domination but ahead non the less.
