We live in a world where what you have done in the most recent past is all that matters. The ACC had a winning record over the SEC this year. One could argue match-ups all day of those games but the record is all that is important.
I do not however believe the best in the ACC could handle the best in the SEC...YET!
Please do not bring up basketball... NO COMPARISON! Not historical, recent past or this year. The SEC has some catching up to do in basketball.
