Bowl Games in South is Advantage for SEC
One thing I will point out is that the big ten always travels south to play SEC teams in bowl games. Playing in Florida and places like the Sugar Bowl(LSU) gives sec teams a HUGE advantage. I don't EVER remember SEC teams coming north other than the Indiana Kentucky series...
Editor's Note: Thanks, many Big Ten Fans have made this point. It is a valid point. However, my counter would be -- "sorry, that's life."
What I mean is that's where the bowl games are played, so them's the rules we play by. Of course the reason they are played in the South and Sunbelt is due to weather. And, weather affects lots of other things too, like the ability of kids to play outside more. On the other hand, this probably is a disadvantage when it comes to hockey or maybe even basketball (to a lesser degree).
So, yes, when it comes to outdoor sports, football included; weather is a big advantage for the SEC that manifests itself in many ways.
I guess God meant it that way.
