SEC Fan and Loving It
I have argued for years with these northerners about the SEC being a greater, better, faster, more competitive conference than the Bid 10 for years. Yes Florida has me eating crow right now but overall, we RULE.
Being a GA native I just love it, I think the SEC causes me to enjoy college a lot more than the NFL. Everyone thinks that females don't like football, but I am here to tell you differently, that is another win for the SEC, women love football.
I would like to add before closing that as I watch one more bowl season, where the commentators are clearly Little(Big)10 fans, I will scream, or try my best to rally my fellow SEC fans in an attempt to get our own network.
During the Tennessee/Wisconsin game the announcer even slipped and said, and I quote, "we can handle the SEC, we are just as fast...." I thought the announcers were there to call the game and analyze the butt-kicking received not there to state their case and lobby for their past conference.
SEC Has Slight Edge
The SEC and Big Ten are not the only great conferences but I guess the SEC-Big Ten debate has gotten more interest because of last year's national title game.
I definitely don't believe the SEC is head and shoulders above everyone else, but I think it has a slight edge at this point in time.
I would like to say the gap is wider but it just isn't because the SEC hasn't won enough head to head match ups.
I do think the SEC is on the rise though and partly because of the coaches in the conference.
The reason I would overall give the SEC a slight edge is mainly because it has won five national championships in the last 16 years by four different teams and denied a shot for one in 04, which means it's probably safe to say it is the deepest of the conferences.
