SEC vs Pac 10: SEC Second Rate
Of course the SEC gets the leg up on all the voting and the benefits, and the PAC-10 by far the most balanced conference will continue to get the shaft.
When the SEC decides to play most of their games within their own conference, then we shall see more equality. The biggest reason you do not see the PAC-10 is because we are about winning our own conference and that is a very hard thing to do.
So SEC until you play it like the west, you will always be second rate.
