The SEC is NOT overrated
I enjoyed reading the article posted above. Not sure how long it will still be "current" news. But, the title is "College Football: Why the SEC Is Absolutely Not Overated."
I totally agree. It seems like the mainstream opinion on national sports sites -- like espn.com -- is that the SEC is overrated. This article does a great job of documenting why SEC football is the best college football anywhere.
It showed that the SEC has the best record against the other major conferences; the best all-time bowl record; the best BCS championship record; the highest fan attendance; the highest TV ratings; and probably the most money earned.
The only conference even close, for the most part, is the Big Ten. And, we all saw what happened the last two years when we had SEC vs Big Ten matchups in the College Football and Basketball championship games.
Everyone knows about the top teams in the SEC -- LSU, Florida, Georgia, Auburn, Tennessee, etc. But the SEC really distinguishes itself with its bottom teams. They are all good.
Traditional SEC doormats Kentucky and Miss. State both made bowl games this year. But, how bout South Carolina and even Vandy. Both ended up about .500 and within one win of making bowl games. Even the last place team in the SEC -- Ole Miss -- who didn't win even one conference game all year -- even the Rebs were tough. I can vouch for that as my MSU Bulldogs had to pull out a miracle rally to beat them.
Anyway, no doubt, the SEC is #1 and I enjoyed reading that article about it. Thanks for hosting it on the site.
