SEC Football is -- OVERRATED!

Maybe the truth is that the sec is just overrated. Maybe they are the ones who have fooled the nation.
Other than lsu's win over va tech who else has the sec teams really beaten? I know tennessee lost to Cal. Florida's non conference sucks. Lsu struggled with Tulane for 3 quarters. Also 67% of the bowl games last year between the big bad sec and the BIG TEN ended up in favor of the BIG TEN. Wisconsin and Penn St. beat up on the likes of arkansas and tennessee.
And yes florida was the better team THAT NIGHT vs Ohio State. So you're pissed because you guys beat up on each other and you don't think that is fair. WELL IT IS CALLED PARITY. It happens in every conference. Just take care of business THIS YEAR and you will be rewarded with a better bowl game. If you lose a game or 2 (or 3 like florida) you will not be invited to the big dance. Maybe its the sec or pac 12 or big east or big 12 or even the BIG TEN that is "down" this year and we will never know it until either someone starts scheduling better non conference opponents or we need a damn playoff.
I can not speak for all BIG TEN teams but I know that The Ohio State University tries to schedule at least ONE tough non conference opponent EVERY YEAR. Since the schedules are made up 10-15 years in advance no one really knows how good each team will be that far in advance. For OSU home and home with: Texas, Washington(this year), USC, Miami, Va Tech and Oklahoma in the next few years. Maybe YOU GUYS are just average at best and the average teams just keep beating up on each other. That being said LSU is a really good team.
Ohio State is a really good team. As for the rest of both conferences there are some good teams but nothing great. The moral of the story is just don't lose and you'll be fine. I think the 3 best teams right now are: OSU, LSU and ORE. and someone will be left out and I didn't even mention Okla. BC, W.Vir.and ASU all of whom are still in the mix.
ITS CALLED PARITY and that is what college football has evolved into. Best of luck, you'll need it....I'm out.
