Re: Was the Big 10 overrated in 2006?
Michigan and OSU certainly played like crap in the bowls.
And the SEC teams fared pretty well in the post-season.
But I think it should be noted that one of the SEC heavyweights thumped Notre Dame in a bowl game.
The same Notre Dame that Michigan, OSU and USC have also thumped in the past 12 months.
LSU vs. USC or Louisville might have been a better measuring stick.
It's also worth noting that VPISU played Georgia in Georgia's backyard. Play that game in Charlotte or Nashville or pretty much any place outside the state of Georgia, and I think the outcome of that game very likely changes.
