RESPECT FOR PAC-10
Excellent website on SEC Football, my compliments. I enjoyed the facts and detail. You clearly spent a lot of time on it.
My main purpose in writing is to lobby for a bit more respect for the PAC-10. I noted that the Pac-10 leads the SEC 9-6 in head to head match-ups over the past ten years, coming into this season. So, I guess UCLA’s win over the Vols make it 10-6.
Of course that is padded by Oregon’s home and away wins over Mississippi State of a few years ago. I’ll gladly concede the SEC as the top college football conference, but disagree with your ranking of the Pac-10 so low (5th). Or maybe you are just using the number of National Championships to arrive at that.
I am an Oregon Ducks fan, but enjoy all of Division I football (refuse to use the new nomenclature). The Pac-10 suffers from beating each other up in a full 9 games against conference opponents. Plus, everyone schedules at least one MAJOR non-conference game each season, or so it seems.
Since you are so familiar with SEC football, I think you’ll agree that Georgia actually traveling to Tempe to face Arizona State is a rarity for an SEC team.
Anyway, good job with the site!
